Hey! I guess I can give some advice.

Well, first off, I love how you're going about with your faces and eyes. They're looking pretty good. What needs the most work is your poses, I think. Your figures feel very stiff; kind of like old action figures. There are also some proportion issues that need improvement as well. For example, in the second picture, the girl's legs are way too short in comparison to the rest of her body. Her arms also seem to be off as well.

I have similar problems that you have. I suggest practicing from life a little more, and maybe even getting one of those anatomy books and drawing the silly goose out of it. It's a good start though. I'm definitely seeing a semblance of life in these drawings of yours. :)

Following what Hejin said, the legs do need some sort of restyling, I say you should gear you practice works into drawing character that do not have clothes that cover their knees. Rule of thumb, best way to practice drawing anatomy and proportion is to draw lightly colored characters better if they don't have clothes, because clothing interferes with learning anatomy and is usally used as a device to hide anatomy errors. Easily spotted though so...it's best to solve them than hide them xD. Also, focus on drawing characters front view standing and get used to proportion and anatomy in that position before having your character move their limbs...that's the best way to get proportions memorized and to have a general sense of anatomy. Draw lots of these.

Hello to another hands-practicing person :D Your fists are great ^.^ Anywayz, I liked that Bella and Edward pic on your DA, you're good with expressions. =) What I don't get with this one is why are her feet... next to his? I mean, they're like hugging, right? It just looks a bit weird to me. Whtvr, listen to the smart people that posted above me and I hope you put a new pic here soon, following some of their advices ^.^

Good hand training, but in most of the hands the palm is very small (also in some works the hands are not very good).

You should work with anatomy (not anime anatomy, real anatomy), this is because you need to understand human body (and in your draws I can tell you can draw, but you don't understand).
