Question General Improvement Help and Criticism Needed!

Hey all. :3 I haven't been around here in a long time, and I've been posting art back over at TLKFAA for a little while now. :3 Just looking to seek some general critique and advice on a few things: How to improve my style, how to work with perspective a little better, advice on shading and lighting, anatomy... just general things like that. :3 If it helps at all, I use Paint.NET. Here's a few of my recent pictures to create an idea of where I'm currently at. Thanks in advance, guys. <3

Edit: Never mind, the pictures are in my gallery under the name Amaranth.

While Koudo does have a point I want to give you a big 'great job!" It looks like you're having a lot of fun with your drawings.
My suggestion is try drawing from real photos of lions. you've got the basics down, so why not work on anatomy? It will help you out with your perspective and give a more fluid and natural look to your critters.
Keep drawing at keep sharing! Great work =)

(Imgur is a great hosting site for sharing these outside of the fan art archive too!)

Sorry about that, I've never read that before. But thanks for letting me know.

I'll keep Imgur in mind, thanks! I'll upload them there when I can get to the higher-quality files, they're on a slow computer. xD

And thanks for your kind words and advice. I'll definitely give that a go next time I pick up a pencil. I don't usually use references, but they might help. I like the idea of making my pictures a little more fluid. Thanks!
