Everyone looks like they're kind of. Really leaning over. Also some serious dodge/burn goin' on.

The third one bothers me the most. Some of the coloring looks like it was added over the original image in MS paint.

Another commission~

And yes, I'm aware that some coloring is messy, and that his arm is weird looking, and that the shirt is just plain black. That's just how I color black clothing/hair...^u^;
You show some good potential if you keep practicing. The issues are that it all feels a bit too similar, the poses kill me how they are all kind of the same, and your anatomy is lacking. There is some really bad leaning going on too. I would suggest using references of different poses to get some variety, and I mean like from real life, not based on other artworks done, though you could look at other artwork for inspiration. You need to get a better grasp of anatomy and that is best accomplished from looking at the human figure.

Your chibis have a same-leg syndrome going on. Again, I say branch out and draw different poses. Do not get stuck doing the same poses just because it is easy.

Your coloring is fine but lay off the burn and dodge tool, experiment with different types of shading and do not go with something that has been over used and is unappealing like dodge/burn.

Yes, I've realized my posing and anatomy is crap. XD I've never really been taught about that, so I'm hoping to get more experienced when I go to art camp this summer. Do you know of any online resources I could possibly use to draw? OwO?

Thanks for your critique, it was more in depth, and helped me understand things more. OuO

...also, what's the dodge/burn tool? OAO; *doesn't own fancy programs*

No problem!
I would look up some stock images of poses from deviantart, Look up poses from Posemaniacs.com, look up some artistic n***s from places like tumblr, and just get your hands on art books as well. That is what I have done over the years.

Dodge/Burn tool are tools in Photoshop, but there are forms on it on a few other art programs as well. It s just a tool you us in an art program to darken or lighten areas of a picture for contrast, people tend to go over board with the tool though and it has a very shiny look when used. I would just try to plan out contrasting colors and shading colors before you start to color so you can have a very stimulating look.

Bookmarked posemaniacs~ <3 It looks like an awesome site! biggrin


Hm, I don't use the Dodge/Burn tool, or anything like that? OAO;

I believe I use the blur tool... I need to go look up shading tutorials or something. -_-|||
Are you using black and white as your shading and highlight colors? 'Cause those are desaturated and could give the same impression as dodging and burning.

They look okay, most of them are leaning though... and there are a couple of lines that don't connect right between things
