    are you looking for pointers?
    Work on your anatomy. Stop tracing stuff, draw from life. I can tell from a mile a way that you traced that first picture from a photograph. Draw from pictures but don't trace pictures. you don't learn very much doing that. If you want to be successful at stylizing the human body, you need to be able to draw a figure very well realistically first. Take a figure drawing class, get some books about figure drawing. Also get some books about color theory. The more you move your arm the better you will get. Learn about values, form, composition. These all help create compelling art. I could go on forever but all you have shown us is figures, so my two cents is if you want to draw successful figures do a LOT of them. In order to stylize a figure, one must know how everything works in a figure, it is only by knowing how everything works that stylization can be successful. If you don't know how something works, how can you possibly simplify it and change it?
    The pieces you put up are okay, you could work more on technique, but the bottom line is that they don't really say anything. Well at least the first one...I do get a sense of emotion on the second but the first one is really generic.

    Cheers man i found that really helpful, I do a load of Sketchs of the type of stuff i want to do. An get some More up. {critic like that is very useful}

    Other than that though the first image is infact drew from reference not traced, But i completely understand what you mean about it being generic. It doesnt really offer anything up apart from the fact it looks ok. (it was mainly meant to be a colour experiement anyways. Which is one of the things i find difficulty with.)

    Mean while heres a reference drawing of a statue of a sleeping lady, (i came across it during a *catch up with college work* trip to the museum.
    [​IMG]


    This next one was a sketch of a character called Amelia (first notice the incorrect spelling of the name, As well as the blury picture and distroyed hand.)
    Amelia was a story about a [censored] victim whos Turmoil After the incident pushed her towards prostitution.

    Random Face sketchs / emo dude fail

    This is a Random coloured sketch of a guy from a "team" written story i was doing in college. The story fizzled to nothing but i kept the sketch for reference.

    An finally a landscape drawing of a bridge by my old house, I drew this in the rain. The water smudged the inked lines so i experimented with it to test the effect it would create. [​IMG]

    my bad on the tracing then. I was convinced it was traced, in that case good job on locking in the correct porportions =)

    drawing the figure from reference is almost essential so keep doing it =)
