Not really mine, but I found this South Park Character Creator and played with it.

Please keep in mind these are over 3 years old, and I have not been able to update my deviantart page. BUT, I have a job now, and will be lookin' into gettin' a spiffy new computer so I can show you guys my awesome game idea and maybe discuss it with Mr. DanP.

I HAVE FURY!

You seem to have what it takes to become an artist but you lack experience and training so before you start doing anything big I suggest you go ahead and google anatomy tutorials and proportion tutorial. Remember to practice a lot.

*Onto the actual drawings*

Some of them are pretty cool but well they are still too simple and really crowded. Let me do something new, I will Critic a few of them.

Korin the Paper character

Well this one is pretty messed up. I see you used mario as a reference but I think it looks to much like mario. Too me it just look like mario with some glasses, a new color scheme and blue hair. The arms are really messed up they should look like they connect to the body in a natural way but in this drawing they look like lego arms. The hands are a little bad especially the one on the back of him. I just can tell what it's suppose to be doing. I suggest you look around the web for some tips and tutorials on drawing hands. Let's go a little down. The body well it's too circular and it just look like a big woman dress (the ones grandmas use) The feet don't look like they are attached to anything instead they look like they where glued on the drawing in a random place.

Cartoon Self Portrait

Here the line quality is really bad. The colors are dull and unattractive and he's missing an arm.The hand looks good until it reaches the middle finger, that finger is just to squarish for my liking. Look at your hands and study them before you go on and try them out.The glasses are just floating on his head, they are not holding on to anything. You tried to add highlights on the top of his head yet he has no shading and you should never leave a black line or any kind of colored line around the highlights. Is has some other things wrong with it but I felt this where a few of the mot important ones.

I am not trying to be mean, I just want you to improve.

Hope you take criticism the way it's suppose to be taken and that you fix some of this problems.

Haha, believe me, I have improved a lot since then, I appreciate the critic-ing.

Also, I had to MSPaint them to get the notebook paper lines n' whatnot out. I just can't see myself shelling out $600 for a single program (Macromedia Flash, Photoshop, etc).

But if you know some free painting programs, I'd love to know!

If you have a tablet, GIMP 2 is a fair place to start. It's at v2.6 now. You can do more things in GIMP than MSPaint would allow, as long as you know how to do them. Ask around if you need help with it.
