Shouldn't you have flipped that 90 degrees?

Also, resized it?

Yes sorry, Was using my phone to upload it and I have no idea why it flipped like that.

This should be better.

God that squirrel looks weird.

That is not bad! study things from life more, especially animals and people. Look at references of how their anatomy works and looks like. understand how all those parts fit together and work. That will help you understand how they look when drawn!

Going to get hate for recommending this, but, srsly check out Loomis. the pdfs are easy to find. i'll dig up some of the other books I would recommend when i'm out of class. Posemaniacs is also good to practice from.

ultimately, get some good pencils, paper, and practice practice practice the basics. Always practice the basics.

oh and don't feel pressured to get a fancy tablet or anything. its a totally different beast and throws you off badly for awhile b/c hand eye coordination is a bitch. traditional media is always relevant and useful on the fly. I carry a notebook with me and doodle in it between classes all the time. very handy. just draw whatever you see, draw whatever you want. mostly, just draw!

It looks a little weird but you got the gist of it. Just keep working at it, you'll improve.

A very very simple but very very effective bit of advice is to just draw something every day. Draw from life for best effect. It doesn't have to be an animal or anything difficult to draw, really. Just draw something that exists outside your head.

Thanks for the words, apreciate both the advise and the encouragement.

This took way longer than it should have. Wanted to practice a bit on backgrounds and a bit of perspective.

Possible scene from a to be named quest though seeing as how that would be done on the computer it's kind of a moot point

Hands are a bit harder than I thought they would be.

hands are the devil. they will take an immense amount of practice. very fiddly, very annoying.

He most likely meant andrew loomis, yes. Here's one of the first results I got for pdfs of all his books:
