These are all pics I've done using GIMP, using Lineart from my sketchbook. I'm really wanting to get better at this.
These are all OC's of mine. First up is, Ami (Pokemon):

This took about 5 hours to do, but it was fun. also the first background I've done.

this took like, 7 hours because I had to redo ALL the lineart on the computer. using a mouse nontheless. lol.
And next is my OC Adria, who I'm using for an original story me and my roommate are working on.

this was a quick one because I got lucky and my penning was cleaner. took 4 hours.

the very very very first picture I coloured in GIMP. took me 3 hours. I know its not perfect but I like it for a first time thing.
thanks for looking :3

All very nice, its good to see a fellow GIMP user.
If i had to make a sugestion i'd use thicker lines for the facial features, if you study anime the lines around the face are always quite bold, and gives the picture a more 'alive' feeling. Well thats just my experience anyway.
Keep up the good work.

Yay! A reply! xD Yeah, I've really gotten into GIMP now. Thank you for the advice though. I'll be sure to take that into mind ^_^

I've never used GIMP before, but these look very nice.

You've done a very great job at shading, and the facial features also look very nice. :D

Keep up the good work!

You're off to a good start, but again I suggest studying proper human anatomy and structure before attempting to interpret your own style of art. (Try posemaniacs.com). Remember to build up your basic shapes and wireframe structures to perfect the pose, work into the entire piece rather than getting stuck on detail and try to use the pen tool to your advantage to get those clean, crisp lines you so often see in anime and cartoons.

Hope that helps!

Hahah, no problem. there's also a fantastic photo reference site here - http://characterdesigns.com/index.php?sitepage=home (Most I think are nude, semi-nude, but it's an art resource so it's okay XD) hope that helps!

I really admire your colouring, I think the shading could improve just a bit though. That's all. Keep it up
