You don't seem to like coloring too much, like me! I'm loving your sketches though I think they would look better if you used thinner lines, at least more clean.
You're super fond of heavily outlining your forms- this reduces the realism of your pieces, hurting any sense of depth you've got going. Try eliminating this!

yeah... i recived this advice several times before...i think i forget....but do not think i will not try....i just need time ( i mean , i dont know all the tricks about digital drawing )

I think it's because I'm forced to overwrite the lines while using the tablet (maybe is just because i fell more comfortable drawing in paper ) but thanks for the tip

i dont know... i just drawing since i can remember ( and im not so good...i think)
I'll start out by saying you've got an awesome tread going on here, the characters look very correct in sense of shapes, sizes, anatomy and perspective. I see you've already been encouraged cleaning up those lines and took the advice well.
Have you tried inking your drawings on a separate layer using just one smooth stroke for each line while zooming in on the smaller more detailed parts? I guess it takes a little practice and seems a bit like busywork but it'll improve your work for sure.

I'm trying to figure out how the tennis racket swung in relation to the ball. The motion lines suggest the ball is leaving, yet the girl looks likes she's receiving, you know what I mean?
Maybe I misinterpreted the motion, I don't know.

Why you dont post your drawings??!
You're really good, man! The best drawing i saw was that monster. Can you paint it?
I think i'm going to try and paint it, also...
I think you should try some drawings with a lot of contrast, to see how you can do it.
I am a stop sign! Or a weird gnome with a hat. Just imagine whatever.

Yeah, looks a lot better!
Now for the next step: adding color.
There are many ways to add color to a drawing, many of which I might even haven't seen yet but here's two basic ways of doing it that are definitely both in touch with your style:
1. Cell shading
You've basically done this already and you obviously know how to do it
but something that might improve the print-comic look your art reminds me of, is clean line art. This is again best done on a separate layer and it's also important to set the resolution very high (around 300 ppi) to ensure smooth lines. And if your tablet has pencil pressure be sure to enable it so that you can variate the thickness of your lines without having to use multiple strokes per line.
Tip: if you add shading with your line-art, try to follow the curves of your 3-dimensional shapes, it'll help create depth.
2. Building up tone
Again, judging by the awesome knight you posted earlier, you pretty much already know how to do this.
But a tip might be to use color to add shadows and highlights. For example: if you want a warmer tone, instead of just picking the lighter version of your midtone, add in a tough of yellow/orange. For a colder tone or shadow blue is usually the way to go. And for something extraterrestrial green and purple are good options.
Tip: if you forgot to draw your line-art on a separate layer, duplicate the layer and set the blend mode to 'linear dodge'. This will allow you to paint behind your lines leaving your lines intact.
I hope this advice was helpful. Good luck on your next piece :)
Wow really awsome inkin you got there! Your drawungs are very full of movement and dynamism! Woukld really like to see more color to it though

Digging your work, this one in particular. I think it'd do you some good to do backgrounds more often; it hurts to see someone be so good but rarely finish their work.

I like the design--I'm a big fan of really complicated mechanical designs like the one on her right arm--but her left arm looks too long and her lower legs are WAY too short. The ear looks a little too high, too.
