Art critique and advice; beginner artists are welcome to post here; includes an oekaki. (NO FLAMES)

Artists, read before posting!

Before you post your art to ask for critique, please read these tutorials. They explain the basic principles of drawing and figure drawing. Most posts where these basics are missing will never get a response, as people are quite frankly sick and bored of explaining over and over that you would have to pretty much learn how to draw first, before you could improve.

And for those of you who want it a bit easier, we also have the whole thing as one neat rar with all three books in pdf form.

You should try to make the canine's legs a little thicker. His leg proportions look more like those on the rodent, but there is an obvious size difference you were trying to accomplish. When you fix the legs, make sure to compensate for proper torso length too; I've seen corrections solve one problem, but create others. The rodent's left leg has a rather poor transition between the thigh and the calf. Try to give the leg a little more body, and it should work greatly to your advantage.

The actual position is a little awkward, but it works. Sometimes bizarre poses make the most interesting pieces in the end, anyway. No one likes a static pose unless it's a reference sheet, and even then that isn't always true. So far, so good. Good thinking on redoing the lines, it makes it much easier to see.
