Look in the mirror when you wink. You'll see there's a lot of eyebrow movement and sometimes cheek movement.

My next step would be my perception of 3D and posture. Shading finishes the work and can fade imperfections but it doesn't replace a good perspective.

If you study your last drawing you'll notice that there are some mistakes that make it look flat.

I'd suggest you to either pick subjects that are not toys / comic characters (because it won't teach you much since they're not realistic enough) or make up a character with cylinders/boxes and play with poses and points of view. A very good exercise is to watch a real world person (or a photo), identify the pose and exaggerate it on your character: it will print archetypes of postures in your memory and allow you to create dynamic and credible postures.

Oh im under no illusions
that i need to improve but from
where i was a year ago im much better.

Im a work in progress will take me
years to get to where i want to be.

I do try to look at all the things you mentioned i do look at my drawings and
see all the imperfections that you see

Im just not skilled enough yet to make them as they should be made. I try to draw everything not just cartoons.

Thanks for your advice

The effect on her head is weird.

Generally the light comes from the top, so the top of the arm should be lighter than the rest. Here it seems like the light is coming from below and behind the character, which is weird.

Here is an attempt to correct the perspective :

- In blue, I have refined lines. You can see that on your drawing the horse has a bumpy back, like a camel. I think you have confused the shape of the horse and the shape of the seat (in red). Also, you shouldn't align the line of the horse's mouth with the line of his neck : it gives the impression that they are the same shape, which flattens the drawing.

- The green lines are lines you should draw (or suggest) to represent the superimposition of shapes. As it is now the chest looks really odd. The line on the horse's jaw would make it look a lot more dynamic, and the ones around the girl's head would make it look more round and full.

My two cents.

edit. corrected my English

Ok,

you might end up losing all patience with me geo.

:)

I have tried though,

The light is supposed to be coming from the top, slightly to the left as you look at the picture ie your left.

Thanks.
