dude chill i think your going to be a good artistor at the very least be better than what you are now

you have great symmetry something that i didnt have when i was younger
and i still got alittle bit better, so for you, yourself.... i think you can get alot better it will take atleast a month or two to see some good progression

well for now im not gonna critic on how you could make the face better
lets just start with you learning how to draw bodies as i have no particular idea what style you are going to go for or what you might end up with

for now i cant think of any good tutorials to help you but, you can try going on deviantart and type in " how to draw the body" or something like that to help you

finally i think you should also get some drawings on deviantart, um..... like..... well some type of art you want to get into and improve on when you get older like disney, marvel or anime just some pics you could link us to so we now how other artists can help you on how you could get more into that sort of style and what could support your type of art instead of everyone throwing random comments at you which could lead to contradiction of what you actually want and what not!

don't be hard on yourself.... your really doing great.... the proportion of the face looks very equal and symmetrical (its a good thing)..

Keep practicing... When i was starting out i had trouble drawing a symmetrical face.. Even now I still have that problem when drawing faces in freehand. The trait you have is good and when you get older maybe drawing faces would be a piece of cake for you..
"
When i was starting off and wanted to improve, I would get a picture of a character I like and copy it.(not tracing, "copying")
Copying to the point that they were almost alike.. This way i would learn how the pros do it.. and soon after, i made original drawings from the things i learned from other artists.

This helped me to develop my skills and find what style i belong to. Keep Practising... I Know your doing great..

C: I'll comment on your latest drawing.

When inking, try to keep a steady hand and ink in on flow. If you start and stop, you end up with lines that overlap and areas that have thicker parts than others. If you don't get it right the first time, keep practicing and you'll improve. Also, be sure to go back to your drawing and make sure you inked all the parts. Stopping before you reach the end point is not good like where you stopped inking the hair before it even reached the shoulder. Or the part where you missed the line on the collar of her T-shirt. Also not good.

Try to be consistent. For example, the irises for her eyes are not exactly the same sizes. She's look face forward so she should have the same size for both eyes. If she was in a 3/4 view, then this would be different but generally, when people face forward, eyes should be symmetrical. Speaking of consistency, her head looks like she got bashed when she was young. Remember to round the top of your character's head especially when they have hair like that which basically follows the skull. Poofy and spiky hair are exceptions of course but you didn't draw that so.... be sure you check your lines.

More on consistency - her shoulders are not at the same height. If she's standing straight, then both her shoulders should be at the same height. Right now, they look askew. Try to keep the shape and size consistent on both sides. Humans are generally symmetrical people so be sure to match one side with the other just like the eyes.

Your collar bone is too high. Collar bones are located at the base of the neck. It basically starts where the throat ends and your ribs start and swing upwards to the top of your shoulder like the brows of an angry person. With the shirt she has on, you should erase those lines on her neck.

I notice you added some lines for folds on here shirt and jeans. Some have relevance and others feel like they've been put there just because. I suggest you study folds some more. If you don't know where to put folds, you can look up some references. Heck, go look at yourself for reference! You have shirt and jeans right?

Lastly, you should try to add thickness to your clothes. Right now, they look like they were either spray painted on. If you look at yourself with your jeans on and look at the waist, there is a thickness between your skin and then the jeans itself. This is a common mistake among beginning artists. They just draw the shape of the leg and then add details on it to make clothes. Don't do that!

Anyways, try to improve. Keep practicing and don't give up. If you haven't checked them out already, I covered clothing and folds (http://www.mangatutorials.com/index.php?do=/news/category/all-news/clothing/) at this site so be sure to check those tutorials out.

mmmkay so the deal is : i likey how you have pretty clean lines and your art reminds me alot of a friend when he used to draw manga.
I think some advice I would give is first to study real people and how tthere anatomy looks. Dont try to work out every name of every bone but just get a general feel for the way it all looks.

Or if thats boring .. try this. I think your using the traditional guidelines that can be found on all drawing sites and in all drawing books and thats great if you are because there real usefull and i still often use them. But when using them two things to bare in mind

1. Try to draw all the shapes as 3d images , you dont need to shade them but when you draw them atleast think in your head that they are 3d and try to imagine them wraphing round tto create form.

2. Something I learned last year is that those guides are not the be all end all of drawing manga. Try to be a bit more fluid in there use. I tend to go with a general gesture sketch and then add the guidelines in to get the anatomy correct. Try thinking of the body as a bean bag or a pillow in that its pretty flexible and loose in some areas like the hips. That will help bring life to your drawings

Yeey I got critique from rio,i'll defintly use that xP.
I noticed myself I have problems with the eyes and shoulders.
I especially have problems with soulders on the quarter view -_-(Can you give me some tips on that? It's really hard!)
And the folds are extremely hard,thiswas my first try. I already read that tutorial a long time ago btw.
And I did look at a photo for some folds.


EDIT2:
No critique on the shading? this is the first time I tried in my life! 0.o

And drawing is making me depressed these days for some reason..... It's too hard I guess xD
EDIT: I have a better guess:
Trying to become better doesn't feel fun at all and I keep dreaming of being able to make an okay or good looking comic/manga xD
