you really need to work on cleaning up the lines and shading (also proportions) interesting start though

You obviously just drew one half and then copy-paste-flipped it. That's a no-no.
Draw out the entire thing. It doesn't matter if the two sides don't come out identical, the human body is not perfectly symmetrical.

I dont agree with this.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with drawing halfof an image and the flipping it to get some symmetry. You just have to make sure its not exactly mirrored cause that will look weird. Luckily; op did just that.

This is the image that shows the most effort, so I'll focus on this one. Incoming wall of text.

Your line quality isn't very good. They fluctuate in thickness too much and look somewhat sloppy. I've personally never worked in flash, so I'm not familiar what kinds of tools it uses, but you usually want to use a "pen" tool or something of the sort when making lineart.

Your anatomy could do with some work, as well. The most noticeable problem with it is the way his fists look. He looks as though he has two massive knuckles at the top of his hands instead of the usual four that one would have, and the veins or muscles or whatever that are present in the backs of his hands just look kind of slapped on, as though you felt like it needed something, anything muscular to fit the way the rest of his body looks. His forearm also attaches to his hands in a really awkward way, due to his lack of wrists. Lastly, his legs are very small compared to his torso.
The background consists of a bunch of very awkwardly thrown together trees. Hell, one of them even looks like it's floating in mid-air.
I will admit that I like how you're aiming for detail in his muscles and with the bullets around his torso and such. That's a pretty commendable effort.

My main advice for you is to sketch out what you want first, and then draw. Proper planning can lead to a great improvement in the outcome of your work. Yet again, I'm not familiar with flash, but if it's got layers, make use of them. For anatomy practice, you should definitely use references; for general human physique, I recommend Posemaniacs, and for more muscular physique, I'd suggest you just google bodybuilders. The best thing to do is to just keep drawing and working at it with the hope to improve.

God, I'm sorry for this. I usually don't mean to write such big critiques, but as I keep typing they just grow and grow.

You do have a valid point, and I guess yeah, for some characters and designs it is alright to just flip the image, there's nothing wrong with that. I just feel that when it comes to the human body, it just looks and feels unnatural (but that's just my opinion).

not that i can draw, but, you should try it in different patterns, draw it from the computer, draw it from real life, draw it as a continous line, draw it from shapes that arent it, not just the flower, anything, if i try to do it too perfect i fuck up, if i try to do it using just techniques i looked up i can focus too much on the technique and not what result im getting, its hard to apply things to other things like that, and if ya always drawing it from pictures, youll get comfortable, and nobody wants that

I think you have some potential, keep drawing and getting better.

Well, if you say you did this in flash then here are few tips on making your pictures look a little more well done.
1st: Use the brush on a small size
2nd: Try to do your lines in quick strokes to make them look cleaner
abd 3rd: If you haven't got one, purchase a tablet, it helps out a lot once you get the hang of things
Happy Drawing!

It's not bad. It's actually an interesting take on an iconic figure. But yeah, just keep practicing and your skills will get better.

This is good advice for some (especially those who don't have steady hands), but not for all. I personally go very slowly when drawing lines, and I'd say my lineart is usually pretty clean. The OP should figure out what's best for him.

I think it looks pretty good, but I'd watch some of the shading around the nose. I don't know if this was accidental or not, but it appears that the shading is cutting off some of the detail.
