The name doesn't matter, its matter that is related to the user.

Also, you need to work with anatomy. There are disproportions and some shapes shouldn't be used. So try drawing anatomy as a practice.

Hey, welcome to the site. :D
I like these drawings. They seem a bit "Chibi", but I like that. A lot of those tips can be found through MT's site tutorials, if you haven't already looked through them.

I say practice anatomy and look at others drawings as references.
Good luck and keep up the good work.

We don't really mind as long as we can see that this your art topic.

The heads are way to big for my taste, you need to work a lot on proportions, anatomy and folds (which are too simplistic IMHO).
The eyes and the construction of head in general isn't too shabby, but I can only say so much with those pictures.

A good start, but you need to work on your skills a lot.

Drawing fingers, I personally construct the palm area first and then use bones to indicate the pose in which my hand is going to be drawn, then just trace around those bones, making sure it looks like the fingers have a bit of meat in them.

What I noticed about your shading (in the colour picture) is that it is very random. What you need to do is decide where the light source is and draw the shadows accordingly (the shadows are cast all in the same direction). Then just go over the regions and and decide at which points does the area turn away so much from the light that it does not longer reflect any, that's where you have to place your shadows. Of course, if you want realistic shading, you'll need to blend the colours a bit but I'm not the one to talk about that.

Also: Don't double post and that fontcolour is a quite annoying, why can't you just go with black?
