Good job on these! I have a couple recommendations though, if you don't mind. First, I think the eyes on the human characters would be better off a bit lower on the face (on real people they're about halfway up on the head). Also, I think the chihuahua would look better with a smaller body, for more chihuahua-ness.

That's a fun word, "chihuahua". ;9

First: thanks guys! Yeah, I see what you mean about the PotC cartoon characters eyes and the Beatles eyes. I'm used to drawing manga, so I'm still trying to learn how to draw normal cartoons. Hopefully, I'll get better. :)

Even on manga the eyes are pretty low (usually):

Once I learned this and was able to apply it my human drawings improved a lot. :)

Really? What are the titles? I'm watching this guy on TV called Mark Crilley. At least, I think that's his name. He's really good! :)

Well one isn't completely Manga. it's a mix of Anime too.

This one's called "The complete guide to Anime techniques by Chi Hang Li, Patmore, and Scott Baron.
