Ok, sure....I don't draw my characters very often because I really suck at drawing people and I don't have so much inspiration... But hey, that's why I'm here...To improve my drawing skills and to get some advice. Here are some drawings... They are very simple...I've drawn this a couple of months ago I think...
Sweet, you've got a nice cartoony style going on here. I think the next steps for you to work on are probably shading and perspective- so that you can give your figures and their environments the illusion of three dimensionality. We've got some tutorials here and here.
Another thing that might be useful is getting a sketchbook full of unlined paper and taking it with you everywhere- it's a great way to make sure you have paper on hand to practice with when you're stuck with nothing else to do. Drawing from life (rather than imagination) is usually very helpful to beginning artists as it teaches you a lot about lighting and proportions that is hard to figure out without reference.
