I've been drawing for some time now and I would like some tips and critique for my art so I can become better. If it's possible, recommendations for coursers are more then welcome!

Did you mean to post images in this thread? I don't see any.

As for courses, I hear good things about Schoolism for learning fundamental skills, but there are others like SVSLearn that are surely helpful as well. Apart from that, there's always books. Any more specific advice depends on what kind of art you want to make.

I would say that it serve nothing to recommend anything before you show your artistic level.It would be to large of a selection to narrow it down to what you might would most benefit from.

Artwork before advise. This is an unspoken rule of critique atleast you give the reader a chance to adress you more precisely.

Do you have more finish work or more thing to show?This is still to limited of a sample to address specific issue.

Loomis - Figure Drawing For All It's Worth

is a good and common suggested book for figure drawing.But really it come down to what you want to draw that really what is missing in term of information you could provide use with for good book recommendation that would complement the one i suggested.

Sorry for the late answer, but that is one of my problems right now. I am not sure what I should do, something more realistic, cartoony or a combination of the two. If you have a book recommendation about this topic I would deeply appreciate it.

Base on that (Loomis - Figure Drawing For All It's Worth) for the fundamental and more realistic approch and

if you want to try cartoony supplement with (Andrew Loomis - Fun WIth a Pencil)

The idea is to try thing be fearless it part of the artistic growth.

Just have in mind that fundamental are what you should strive to build as your foundation to branch out into your own direction.

First thing's first, what do you enjoy drawing? Do you have any favourite artists or genres? When you think about the work you want to create, do you have any examples that you can share?

Well, my favourite artists would be Zaifon, CeeHaz, Rariatoo, Mr.FishCorpse, n.da both monsters and NSFW art, Max Grecke, Some of Corn's art, Lukasz Pizkorz, Artofalan, scruffy shenanigans some of his art,loisvb and adammurphyart. Most of them I chose because I like the artstyle. I will link all of them so is easier if anyone wants to see their art.

Ok cool, that's definitely a great selection - they're all very exagerated cartooning styles, and Adam Murphy is probably my favourite of the artists mentioned - the ability to draw simplified forms of real people and still have them recognisable is a strong trait.

Loish is well known for having a distinct style, and mild subject matter, but a lot of that sort of work would fall apart without a decent background in figurative drawing. The other artists use highly exagerated forms so you can get away without being a pro fine artist. But, with simplified forms they have to be easy to read and identify and that's a skill to work on.

There are other members who can point out book titles or videos to look at for tips, but start posting to your Sketchbook, and let us see what you're working on. You could read for days but won't know what you know until you put it into practice.

So from what i feel when i look rapidly at the selection of artist you look up to you have not so much an interest for retro cartoon but more or less a modern disney like character with a more stronger lean toward manga with a splash of comic none super hero type.

I still would recommend 

Base on that (Loomis - Figure Drawing For All It's Worth) for the fundamental and more realistic approch

I also suggest you go to the resource section we have here on crimson dagger

http://crimsondaggers.com/forum/thread-3.html

It the resource section you can probably find a few free book there to supplement the one i suggested that spike your interest because after the goal is to create motivation for you to want to draw.
I personally felt overwhelm when i visited the resource section s the first time so don't try to rush and collect everything but rather try to go there looking for resource that might answers your question  before asking them.But feel free to ask question and certainly try to learn from a book if you can't afford art class that would help you build solid foundation.

Also i strongly support what RottenPocket said'' start posting to your Sketchbook, and let us see what you're working on. You could read for days but won't know what you know until you put it into practice.''

This website https://drawabox.com/lesson/1
 is a good place to start as an artist it give you a good amount of drawing drill to start before a drawing session and it help you focus on the important matter that respect the ability of someone who would be starting out.It might not be pretty it might not be fun right away but it certainly pay out.
