I especialy like the head of your first drawing, most of your characters faces are actualy pretty good. what you gotta do is start studying the human body and its proportions and find more dynamic poses for your characters, if you start drawing from real life and memorising the things you see, all of your drawing will improve. what especialy bothers me is the arms. you can't get away with just drawing bumps on both sides. you gotta think on where the muscles and bones are located, just look at your own arms in the mirror if you hafto. btw, despite what you think, the angel girl is far from your best work... owh, and stick figures are only good for working out a dynamic pose for your character as a skeleton of some sort. once you find the proper pose, build your character around it. also, one of the mistakes i often made in the past is having my characters limbs seem stiff, you don't always hafto draw knees and elbows in a sharp angle, sometimes a smooth curve works alot better.
Thanks for being one of the few who actually told me advice and did not just merely say it in a few words. In fact I think we need more people on the forums who actually give a reasonable response to a thread.
Oh and before I forget, does anyone have any ideas for what I should draw next, cause' I feel like my ideas were washed away, so I kinda need help thinking of new ones.
