Constructive criticism is appreciated on any of my works (though I may not be able to go back and apply it depending). If you can inform me how to fix mistakes I've made that would be especially helpful!

My deviantART Story
First off, apologies for the inactivity. The past couple of years I've done more sketching than making presentable work that I feel is worthy to be in a deviantART gallery. But I can promise you, that it'll change very soon! If you follow any of my tumblr blogs, either personal or my art blog, you might know what I have up my sleeve! 
Anyway, I think I will take the opportunity to reflect on "my deviantART story," because I feel it appropriate given where I am now artistically and the role this website played to get me there. 
I joined here in 2003 (holy jeeze...) when I just turned 12 years old. My first deviation was this: 

I was really really excited about finally uploading my work to a website than a forum, as I did for a few months. That's where I got my real start, and that was when I discovered all I ever wanted to do was draw.

Lackadaisy - Patreon
I've recently left my job in the game industry so that I could focus more of my time and attention on Lackadaisy.  Patreon is my weapon of choice in trying to see this to fruition.
If more Lackadaisy comic updates, illustrations, tutorials, mini-comics, books and other things interests you, please do check it out!

Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog.  In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
- Relax.
Let some of that anxiety go. This isn't a hard science. There's no wrong way,

Hummingbird Heart
Whir of a bird, weightless thing,
Plucking away on scissor wings,
Suspended beauty, quivering and sleek,
You fly to each flower, and plant a peck on each cheek.
Propeller seed pollinator,
Is your heart likewise like a drum?
Do your wings beat in time?
Is it your blood that we hear hum?
Wayward bird,
What is all your flower-hopping for?
Are your affections so fleeting,
Or are you hoping to find more?
Summertime sweetheart,
Although I hope you'll give me a try,
I fear your kiss will be not a lover's hello,
But a one-time's goodbye.

Nice work! I get the sense that he's smothering/controlling her, and you did a great job making the scene look uncomfortable. There's a nice sense of movement, contact and body language too, as you can see how Linda's reacting to how he's holding her. The form/anatomy is generally good, though there...

Looks really nice so far! I'm loving the head/back movement. :D I really like this little guy's design, and I can imagine this'll look wonderful when it's finished. In way of things that could be improved, there are some flaws with the followthrough. What sticks out to me most is the tail. In your co...
