Those are great! I like the first and third ones the best. You did a great job on the eyes.

These are really awesome! You're good with detail, and the fir texturing is really bang-on.

Some constructive crit, since you asked: You mentioned you'd like to work on depth. I think that the best way to go about it, with your art, is to add more contrast with shadow and light. Your first piece has some nice lighting depth happening, but it seems that the shadows are all over the place. Perhaps the lighting in your reference pic was like that, so I'm just judging on what I see.

The second piece could definitely benefit from some nice lighting effects! I notice you work minimally with colour. Using various colours for shading can add gorgeous depth and vibrance to a piece. Contrast is especially important in grayscale, remember. You've nailed the contrast on the hound drawing, IMO. The dachshund could benefit from some more, but you're on the right track.

I can hunt down some tutorial/suggestive links for you later, if you like. I'm on my way out right now.

Your art is awesome! Keep practicing!

You did an excellent job and have nothing to be hesitant about. I think the eyes are one of the most difficult to draw and you captured them beautifully. Well done!!
