Check the Lucy one to see who I think should be who, but honestly it is up to you.

As for critique... Umm, I don't really have much to say except try new things? I think I'll just use one of Taeshi's responses for this. The first link you have to go to the HOME or LESSONS AND TIPS and the second link gave me troubles, but the others seem interesting. I'd check the first one because it has lessons and tips... I don't know I'm trying to be helpful.

Gnukko: How did you learn to draw?
Taeshi: Gnukko is sending me this question because I got a "can you give me drawing advice?" e-mail and I rather make a detailed question here to be able to link to in future.

ANYWAY i learned to draw just mimicking various cartoon styles and drawing the same stuff over and over again. I was a really impatient and speedy artist, so I would draw straight from pen. Unfortunately that's why I struggle to be detailed :( A flaw I'm trying to fix and struggling a lot in. SO I'M NOT THE BEST AT ADVICE and that's why i avoid doing tutorials and stuff. What I can offer can easily be offered a lot better by other people through googling and research.

ANYWAY

HERE IS SOME ADVICE FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE VERY LITTLE DRAWING EXPERIENCE ON HOW TO IMPROVE AT DRAWING:

Here are some resources on how to draw the body and little exercises on life drawing. One of the links is really good because it simulates how a classroom works when it comes to life drawing. You have just got to draw a lot, ideally from life. Draw your room, draw your face in a mirror, draw people on the train or bus, you can mimic various cartoon styles but that will only teach you how to draw certain poses and it will prove to be very static when it comes to your improvement. That's why a lot of Sonic artists struggle to draw humans, for example. They spent all their time drawing a really limiting style that when you branch out, you just don't know what to do. You have to just practice and practice and mess up and keep going, you can google "art tutorials" for other ways on improving.

http://art-tutorials.tumblr.com Here's a good one. http://fyeaharttips.tumblr.com And another.

It's only through this that you could start developing a style, the worst thing you can do is mimic a style first and not learn the basic structure of the human body second. I should know, I learned the hard way.

SO BASICALLY DRAW FROM LIFE AND KEEP DRAWING AND DRAWING AND DRAWING AND CRYING AND DRAWING

SMILED BECAUSE I GET THIS QUESTION SO MANY TIMES AND IT'S SO GENERIC AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY AND IT MAKES ME KIND OF MAD AAAAAAA

I know everyone says this, but definitely just keep practicing. I have a folder on my computer full of images from comics that I liked because there was a cool pose, or interesting lighting, or one of a million other reasons that it looked distinct to me. By doing this you start to become aware of what makes artist's styles so unique. By practicing from a large variety of art you'll begin to develop your own style. And in practicing you also just begin to develop an eye for scale. You're off to a great start here, but for example, it feels kind of funny in the face for some reason. Maybe the eyes are too close together, or maybe they're too low on the face (meaning the ears would have to move up too). I'm not totally sure that's it, but like I said, as you draw more you learn to pick up on what looks right and what doesn't while you're drawing.
Also, I would suggest inking your drawings. When I started out, I found that a thick, defined line with a pen, rather than a pencil, made a world of difference in my work. I just used a typical ball point pen, I didn't even buy anything fancy for a long time. It's hard at first, and you risk messing up in pen what you did right in pencil, but it's a good skill to try and sharpen.
(Also I really like the Kingdom Hearts idea! I love crossovers like this.)
