ok critique huh?

the first pic....wat did he do to that metal bay looking thing?? its twisted like a rasberry licorice.
if he did hit something - it should be bent in one direction? like a v? (the guy himself i quite like though ^_^ <-- has that cool look)

second pic and third ..... not much i can say - they look fine to me

I think overall, your pictures are great. One of the things you should watch out for is your proportions. (like upper body to lower, make sure the body is big enough for the head)

like the first picture, the legs look short in comparison to the rest of the body. the shoulders on the second picture look a little bit too narrow in whole when looking at the girl's head size. In the third picture, the guy is smaller framed than the girl, isn't it normally the other way around?

These are just my thoughts.

Study anatomy and structure a bit, it'll help you draw bodies better. Also try using more hues in your shading, as well as using hard brushes to define shadows better.

First, great drawings!

The first one, looks great. (How he managed to do that to the baseball bat!?) But the legs looks a bit short.
And in the third one, the guy face looks a little small. Or maybe ... is not wide enough? Or maybe the neck is too wide.

That's already a great drawing, I think. XD

Coloring is quite good but maybe you need some more shading. And also, maybe the lines are a bit too pale-colored, I mean they don't look so clear~ O.O

Hope that helps ^^

I think overall, your style is adorable! I just looove the big eyes and the hair <3 >.<
But, I'd have to agree with SnowFlower, rincewind and Fawn. Studying proportions would help create more exciting poses. (I myself am still learning to improve on these things.) Right now, your pictures look very flat. (I think that's the word..) If the character him/herself is in a stationary position, I find that it's always more interesting if something else is moving. For example, I usually like to make the clothes look like they're flowing in the wind or I'd draw the character doing something with it (like grabbing it, pulling it, etc.. ), or another thing you can do is add more creases to them.
Also, try flipping the picture to make sure that it looks good both ways before you start inking it, I usually find most of my mistakes by doing this.
As for coloring and lineart, you seem to have lines mastered (They're godly! *-*), and you put my hair to shame, but the coloring, is also very flat. The color palette is wonderful, but the shading is too light! Let it show! Show us how hard you worked on them! >< Try using complimentary colors (like what you did with the hair) instead of a darker shade of the color you are using. Experiment with them, you might find that the two most unlikely looking colors look amazing together. And if you're working on white, just use a light shade of a color that's already in the picture. (Ex: Red=pink) It makes the white stand out more.
..Just some suggestions.

Thank you ^^ I was trying to figure out how to draw a metal bat.

@Snowflower

@Fawn
Thank you, I'll make sure to study anatomy and use harder brushes.

@rincewind
I think I made his neck too wide >.>; and thank you.

@felisselita
Thank you, that helped. I'll try to make my shading darker.

@Version
I'm not very good at proportions, so I have to study really hard >.< thank you for your suggestions, I'll make sure to do them ^^

I drew a picture today, hopefully it's okay ^^;

Your art is looking super-cute, especially your chibi characters! ^^

Most of the stuff to improve on was already mentioned by other people, so I was wondering if you use wire skeletons (I'm not quite sure what they're called -- they're those stick figure-like things) in your sketching process. If not, you should consider using them even if they seem like more work than they're worth, because they can really help with proportions and for adding volume and a sense of 3D to your art.

@Zocha
Thank you. I don't use wire skeleton, I've tried it before, but the character would always come out wierd. I'll try using again ^-^

@rincewind
Thank you ^-^

I drew another picture! Inspired by Super Junior's Mr.Simple >///< Kyaa~ Eunhyuk!!

OMG LOL, I had a mini spaz-attack when I saw your avatar in the forums. Then I lurked and noticed your latest picture in this thread. <333

Nice job with the lighting and the colouring~although just a comment, I think his hair / body / etc. are in proportion, but his face looks a bit small in comparison. (But then again, I'm no pro!)
Also, Eunhyuk's concept for Mr Simple is so adorable! I saved like a gajillion pictures of him, hurrhurrhurr. He's not even my bias OTL.
