Well, yeah, hello.
I'm trying to get better in drawing and I'd love people, who'll criticise my works to help me improve. I'll appreciate any constructive criticism.

So, yeah. Here we go, first one here.

I'd say work on the feet. Also you have the shadows above the characters and highlights that show light coming from the top. That's not right; adjust the shadows by establishing the light source. Right now you got light and shadow on one side.

Welcome to the art forum.

Where's your light coming from? First step before shading/adding shadows should be defining the direction of your light source(s). There's also a mild case of clownfoot going on with the black haired fella. If you're not sure about how to draw something (like a shoe) from a certain angle, I'd recommend using a reference.
Other than that it looks pretty well done. Keep at it.

Ok, another one.
It's older picture, but a ot of people is telling me that something is not right, but I noone told me what exactly. So I don't know where I have to improve. (Except leg-probem. Yes. This leg-problem is quite visible for me. :D )
Can you help me?

It's the anatomy.

Where her right leg connects with her hip, the hip itself is too small, her feet( right now she looks as if she has 2 left shoes on.) Her right hand is smaller than her left, and I think her rib cage could be bigger.

Start practicing anatomy. There's a lot of books photos and tutorials about on the web that you can use for reference. Couple of tips I think would help would be to make the hips about as wide as the shoulders and to practice drawing shoes as well. That dip in the outside shoes is mch more subtle, to want to round it a bit more.
