Love your artwork! The females are wonderful and I'm glad your attempting males now, too~ You have a unique art-style and want to see it progress more and more!

...If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails....
Thankies, guys! I've been drawing doods like crazy, trying to get them right.
So here is a couple I really enjoy from an old story we're bringing back: Merri and Noko. Noko was supposed to be in the background, but, I think, I made him too tall/big. ;_; I'll have to fix it if I decide to color it.
This is the same picture, but a close-up of Merri. Since she was the one I took forever on. XD

Very nicely done. You've obviously been practising, and you've got a lot to show for it.
I think that, in order to get the perspective correct on the male, you should make him slightly smaller, though primarily he is in the wrong location. His feet need to start somewhere around her ankles or shin, and then the top of his head needs to (at least) meet the top of hers. That way, unless you add a background image that would make it more obvious, you can immediately see that he is more in the background. (Although, if you don't have a background image, he may look as if he is simply floating directly beside her.)

Looking good! Your face style is definitely noticeable in both images. =D One thing I'd like to point out, because I do that sometimes (hehehe), is in the second image; male bodies don't normally have such wide thighs, and where that would probably work more on a female, it doesn't match too well for a male. Just helping you out with that piece. =D Generally, men are without any curves (unless you are looking at them from the side, where their back creates a curve) and you might consider them to be "walking measurement sticks" (unless they are meant to be drawn overweight). Women have the curves when looking at them from any side, so you can't go wrong with curvy awesomeness there.
Yeah, I'm having major trouble on guys, still. ;_; I still have to draw much more of them. XD
Remake of a picture. XD I didn't like the old one, so I thought to re-draw it. I like Merri and Noko a lot, so except lots of pictures of them - maybe it be separately or together. Hehe. The sword she is holding belongs to Noko. ^^ He won't let anyone hold it, but she can get away with it.
Another picture of Merri - this time holding onto Noko's prized pendant, as if something horrible has happened to him.
I like your style ^-^ Merri is cute as a button. Perhaps you've already done this, so maybe I'm just flogging a dead horse here, but I'll suggest it anyways. Brush up on some anatomy, for both men and women, it'll make proportioning them a heck of a lot easier when you have an idea of what is where. After that, practice practice practice. For me personally, I like to have a model (whether it's an image or an actual person) when drawing people. I typically stick with realism (even though I absolutely suck at drawing people, but I'm trying!) I find having a visual reference helps a lot, especially when trying to draw the things that you find the most complex to get right.
Good luck with your art and I look forward to seeing more! ^-^

Yeah, actually I go to Model Mayhem to look for models there. It really helps a lot - especially if you're drawing a character like me and want to know their specs. Lols. I have some references for males there, but it feels so awkward staring them while drawing when you have a fiance.
My character, Corinne.

Oh nice! They are very well done, and you're definitely improving! =D
The fairy wings (on the first image) seem to start in the wrong location, so I would recommend bringing them down a bit, and having them start more in a location where you can tell they are starting on the back. Currently they appear as though they are starting at 1/4 of the wing versus the bottom of the wing (if that makes sense).
