Honestly, the only good ones are the spongebob one and Jinx logo, and both are copied.

Also, just out of curiosity, is English your first language?

Free handing from a picture and not providing a link to the source picture and making it clear that it's not your original art =copying.

And I asked because your English isn't very good and was wondering if you had recently learned it.

most of the pictures (I didn't search through them all) have very bad proportions, or are just not done.

I'm a new artist to NG and still kind of getting the hang of the way things work around here, but I thought I'd try and help. Of the four drawings you have the only critiques I would give are that some areas of the drawings look a little bit rushed or poorly tended to, with the exception of the heart which seems all around relatively carefully drawn. Also, there seems to be a lot of variation in the actual things you use when drawing, like the paper/pencils/markers, etc. It helps maintain consistent quality to use the same utensils or the same types of utensils each time, such as the same type of paper, the same type of marker or pencil or whatever.

Some things that helped me improve were to spend a lot of time becoming acquainted with proportions, dimensions, and anatomy (I'm thinking of the skeleton), because that will also help with quality and a more solid, consistent image; getting to know the limits and abilities of your utensils; and actually, this neat trick I learned where if you're not sure where you can improve a drawing, you flip it around backwards and honestly whatever mistakes and inconsistencies there are will just right out at you. Works every time, especially with line art and sketches.

Hope I wasnt' too wordy, and good luck. :)

There is really not much to say. You need to just sit down and practice drawing, and that doesn't mean drawing the same thing over again. Buckle down and go do some good ol fashion still life drawing, and then whether it be from photo or a live model, do as much figure drawing as you can. It can be tough to start out with that sort of practice, but it's kind of like being an athlete: no matter what sport it is, you will never be good if you don't run hundreds of laps and master the basics first. It applies to art as well.

Also: I highly recommend you check out some books by Glenn Vilppu. His series on life drawing will improve your work infinitely.

about a minuet or two between post should be enough, maybe even less. Although you do have the 4post per 30 minutes limit, but if staggered right that shouldn't be much an issue.
And no, you cannot post more than one at a time. but think of it stretching out your thread and giving you a ton of +1's to your post count.

I've been trying pretty hard to find good things to say about your art and critique it without being an ass, but I just can't. The only thing that i'm not entirely positive is copied is the hornet, but it's nearly impossible that you drew that without reference when comparing it to your other...works.

Sorry dude, just keep working.

Hey there! Welcome to the BBS and all that jazz. I have one really important advice to give you that could go a long way:

Draw what's in front of you.

That's it. Seriously, you need to practice drawing what you see first before jumping into copying pictures or just drawing stuff off your head. The brain works as though it has its own eye, but what it sees is different from what you're putting on paper. You need to practice drawing WHAT you see, not what you THINK you see.

Just try it. Draw the thing next to you. Yes, it could be a book, but there's more to that! How big is it? Does is cast or receive shadows? What's next to them and how big are they in relation to the first item? Are there a great deal of space between them? These information are important and teaches your brain to see. That is what makes a casual sketcher an artist.

Always draw what you see and later on you'll be able to draw fantastic pictures because your brain will have had lots of reference in real life. Good luck!
