the heads are huge but I guess that's the style, I've seen that happening a bunch of places
anyway, the anatomy is wonky so try looking practicing more on that.
The tracing is good practice but don't get toooo used to it, it'll hold you down in the long run
the coloring on the Miku one is pretty gud though

I havent really traced.
rest of my training is a program i got suggested. by simi-tracing characters.
you know.

you draw a character you found somewhere, but with another position/movement/action
then afterwards. u start making the same character with some other hair. and then u work on the core of the drawing and make your own style.

a damn good advice it have been for me.

ill have to thank you, i like constructive critique. u can learn from it.
but you wont learn anything from people complimenting on how good you are.

:)

SAI rocks, but Ps rules. The hair, though, seems a bit too wild in all the wrong places, with too many highlights. Not really much of a professional's standpoint, but it just kinda throws me off a bit.

Muahaha cute moe characters shall take over the earth. On a sidenote, good job. I say use a reference for anatomy until you get a little better at it. Don't worry its not cheating and makes your art 10x better.

thanks for the advice :)

atm im just studying the anatomy on different anime shows ive seen. slowing down. pausing take a look and so on.

also, i know im not good at drawing. i started first time with a girl i knew at school when i was 14 yrs old. then 1 year later the "young years" started, slowly we didnt see each other anymore and stoppede drawing all of a sudden. then when i had my 20 year birthday i got reminded of those days at school. i took a paper and draw something, appeird to be a manga characters. i began watching some tutorials and such. and now ive been drawing in 2 months.

i like to sketch out my mind on a piece of paper, so im damn determent to get better at it. w/o a lie, i can tell i spend 3 hours a day at drawing.

WHOA. NO. HOLD ON, STOP. DO NOT USE ANIME AS A REFERENCE.
I'm gonna quote Luneder here and tell you, if you start out drawing with a style that distorts human form than you're going to be forever fucking up the human form. Use muscle charts and real people before you try any manga/anime-style drawings. Western comics are a great place to look for reference.

What he means is, Manga and anime are just exagerations of the human body. A style, and if you start with those exagerations first, you will silly goose up anatomy and it will be REALLY hard to get you anatomy right. But besides that, your pics are of girls. And if there of women and teens....MOAR CURVES.
