You should study anatomy before drawing runescape figures.

I'm aiming for a very randomised style in the runescape related picture :) Screw anatomy :D

By randomized do you mean abstract?  Because there is a clear difference between abstract and half-assed figures made with the line tool.  Wakka made a perfectly good point about the anatomy, and you seem to have just brushed it off.  Being that this was obviously made with the line tool anyway, it isn't pixel art, at least not yet, I have no idea if you actually plan on investing any work in it.

As for the second piece, far too much anti-aliasing is used, creating a blurry, unattractive piece.

Tisk tisk >:(, anatomy plays a big role in pixel art. Without it you wouldn't be able to view hot elf creatures, lol :-*.

Alright, what do you expect here?  You post non-pixel art lineart with no concern for anatomy and that frankly looks like it was drawn by someone < 10 years old and expect us to critique it... what?  I suggest you either start caring about anatomy, style, technique, et cetera and put some effort into that to turn it into pixelart or don't post stuff like that.  That's just my opinion.

As for the second piece, I don't know what it is, but you say not to ask, so I'll simply say that, whatever it is, it is far too anti-aliased and needs more contrast.  Some of the colours are also almost identical.
