I'll be frank, blunt and generally honest with you.
You're great. For a newbie artist, your drawings are positively amazing. With practice, you can get even better. There are still some mistakes here and there, however- for example, in the last picture the hair that is covered up by Ichigo's right ear doesn't match the drawn parts drawn on each side. I personally like the first drawing the most- the coloring is a good job, considering how new you are to drawing. Please practice more and let us see more of your pictures. I'll be looking forward to them.

Hey thankyou! I Know what you mean about Ichigos hair though. I was trying to go for her head to be leaning to one side so her hair would be kinda falling down if you get what I mean. But I know I didn't get it spot on. I'll be putting some more up soon!

My internet just died. Care to make the images a bit smaller? They're funner/easier/nicer to look at if they are.

That aside, you're a good artist :o Another place that you can post art so people can comment on them and give critique is deviantart.com, if you don't already know about it. It's a huge art website were tons of people post up their art. (like, millions)

The one thing I see right now though is you don't have much of a style... the images just look like you traced them or they were heavily referenced. I would like to see more art though :3

You're off to a rollicking-good start! KEep it up.

And don't be shy of adding copious amounts of colour. One layer is never enough - get into those shadows with darker patches and the highlights with brighter and lighter. Bring your art to life! You can do it ^^

i am loving that tiger thing, did you trace it at all or copy off anything.
i just love the pose of it, and its paws are amazing <3

Thankyou! I am always a little reluctant to put colour/shadow on it as I am afraid I will spoil it. But I promise I will try to be a bit more adventurous with my colouring! :D

Thankyou! I will admit I copied it, but NEVER traced. Its an Ice tigrean from a website called subeta. If you look it up on google you'll probably see the picture I copied. The paws were really hard to get right. Even looking at them now I'm still not 100% happy with them :/

I will be posting some more up soon just need to get my scanner working again. Until then thankyou for the feedback I've been getting!

Many thanks!
