It's nice to see you drawing a scene. The main problem I can see is perspective. We can see the top of the ceiling, but at the same time we can't see the head of the person taking a shower? It looks a bit odd with that perspective problem.

It's ok not to include the details of the person (their face) but I think you should still include the head even if it means adding steam to hide parts to keep them a mystery.

^ mostly it was poor planning and you can probably see many ink sketch mistakes like the magical teleporting doorknob. and i think i got the feet too big.

what's a good way to approach laying out the perspective/space for a scene?

I like to create a scribble of he whole scene with no details just like figures, a box, a circle a stick person, then go. sometimes I just draw a background around the character but if i have an idea i scribble it out since once I put the ink on the paper it isnt going to move lol

I think the most important part of learning or doing perspective in a drawing is to determine where the horizon line is. A good book on perspective is called Perspective Made Easy.

Somewhat poor color selection - namely the dark brown, it's harsh and doesn't blend well. And I'm certain the anatomy is way off. What else?

these are not my characters, these are my imaginings of someone else's anthro characters as humans, for the purposes of critiquing (best to just have realistic stuff critiqued, especially since I also posted these to conceptart.org, where cartoons, anime, and furries are...somewhat triggering, let's say)

because I intend to crank out many, many (I hope) storyboard/concept art type drawings, and I REALLY need to work on architecture and actual good designs for the setting that I'll be trying to depict.

that said, when my own non-human characters show up they'll be rendered realistically and not like cartoon animals.

crit away!

I think you got some really interesting style in here, like it belonged in a cartoon and I like that. Also is good to see you´re self-aware of what to improve so I can only say that practice could be your best friend. The only thing I could recommend is in finding a way to improve the hands, or they have really large fingers or large thumbs (especially on the blue guy) there are some nice tutorials around regarding that, sorry I can´t be very specific.

Also I could recommend avoiding imgur for sharing this type of images. It offers zero privacy. Try photobucket or dropbox,
