Look, it you keep losing the base, make sure you SAVE THE LINK somewhere. Bookmark it or add it to your favourites. I've seen this base before, but I can't remember either.
There needs to be more highlights in the hair. Less contrast in the first one's shirt would have been nice as well. The skirt looks like it would be longer in the back, which is kind of weird. The shading/shape of the shoes needs a bit of improvement, but they are definitely different and that's good. The gloves on the first don't really have much shading either.
What this kind of shading is is SCRIBBLE shading. There aren't really any folds, just an outline, fold-fill, then scribbled on highlights. It makes it look quick and a bit sloppy.
The hair, other then needing more highlight, has a fairly nice shape.
And stay postitive! With lots of practise, you'll get better. Everyone starts somewhere. ^^
