I am a student; an advertising major from Karachi, Pakistan.
I have recently taken up digital art. I have always loved drawing since in remember; i just love it.
Not traditionally trained at all in art but have taught myself slowly but surely. I don't even own my own tablet I've borrowed a friend of mines and these are the works I've been able to churn out. I am in need of serious critique. Critique from professionals and artists would be just amazing for me.

One of these pictures is HUGE. Please scale it down.
Other than that, I can see you are imitating a particular style with those. You should practice the drawing/painting basics instead, like form, perspective and lighting. The style can be left for later: no amount of finish can save a poorly constructed drawing.
You must training to get used to your tools, but the principles are not different from making it by hand...
Your first Batman seems to be correct, but the left leg of Catwoman seems to be broken, the left arm of the guy with the sword has some problems with perspective... the head of Batman (which seems to be based on Frank Miller's works) has some problems of proportions.... Some pictures has some mistakes with lights and shadows.
I believe you have not noticed that due to the desire for digital practice. I did the same in the past.
Thank you for the feedback. I totally agree. I've been too focused on making 'cool' looking stuff that i definitely am letting the basics take a back seat. Will consciously try to work on the basics.
The hand and grip of the gun in the punisher pic doesn't match the perspective of the gun according to the magazine on it (or the other way around I guess). The gun itself also just sort of looks like a mixture of shapes rather than any specific type of gun I've ever seen. Punisher seems to use real guns so you might want to look up some pictures or real guns and just try to make it into some specific gun that exists and people can identify.
