hmmm it's alright, but i've got some pointers.
i think you need to go right back to the begining and brush up on your anatomy and begin your pictures with basic shapes and outlines (i don't have any links right now, but the internet is your friend).
Use as much references as possible and practice the human figure.

okay, practice makes perfect.
and rather than guessing where stuff goes, copy poses.
thanks.

Just for starters yes.
and if your serious about your artwork progressing, study anatomy like your life depends on it.

^ I second that. From what you've posted, I assume you're a beginner, but that can and will change.

This isn't really a critique so much as a hint:

Draw a picture. It doesn't matter what of--just something you can draw repeatedly. Study anatomy, read manga, do more drawings, and then the next day, draw that same picture again. Repeat for ten days, then look back on your improvement. Chances are, unless you're an artistic prodigy, the final result won't be perfect, but it'll definitely be better.
(Credit for that method goes to . . . eh, someone on Deviantart. I can't remember it now.)

yeah, i have been drawing for under a week. before that it was badly proportioned stick people doodled in the margins of my schoolwork.

thats a pretty decent tip, thanks!

EDIT-one thing i seem to struggle with is getting the chin properly drawn-i use a compass for the circle bit, but when i come to the chin i realy struggle to even do a rough shape that is sutibal, and if i try to freehand an oval i end up with a mutant 6 or a cylinder more sutibal for a fat thigh. any tips other than practice as i fear i will get into the habbit of drawing that bit poorly.
