I love the bronze age female, awsome expression! Nice colors too. I see that your new style is tweaked but watch out for the legs. It feels like the joints are a tad low.
Keep it up mate, cheers

i have been thinking that i should quit at my work and just draw like crazy for half a year and then look for some illustration type job.
I'm getting sick of my current work as a cleaner (like today i had to wash blood, vomit, shit and other substances out of carpets) and the pay isnt even good. I get like only 500-800 euros a month and my rent is 372 euros. Also i have been working there all the way from 2001 and i have begun to suspect that, if i dont now make some drastic changes to my life, i'll never become an illustrator (im already 25 years old!)
So i was thinking that, if i concentrated just on my artwork for half a year, i might become good enough to do this professionally..
Theres just that if/when i do this, it'll take 2½ months (maybe longer) until I'll get any money from welfare. And im not sure if i can save enough money beforehand to survive the 2½ months.. unless i ate only noodles!
Still, im scared to do this, but i need to change my life, if i ever want to become anything.. so i think I'll quit at the end of this year! (gotta save some money before i begin this)
anyway, heres the latest one

Hey there! I really like the borderline crazy look they have in their eyes--especially that first guy. I would not want to meet him in a dark alley. I like your style; it's very bold and matter-of-fact; but one thing i've noticed is that your torso to leg ratio is a little off. I sort of have this problem sometimes too; i draw the legs and feet way too small. If you start noticing your feet are smaller than the hands, you know you have a problem. =P Also, I noticed there's a lot of black in your shadows, and i don't know if that's left over from your outline, but sometimes it helps to have some color in your shadows; it makes everything pop out more.
Oh, and good luck with your life-changing decision, man! You've defintely got balls. =D

MsMaverick - yeah, the legs are still a little too short, but at least they are now longer than they were in the summer. Then my legs were tiny!
..but really, my style is still a "work in progress", it'll prolly change quite bit over time
i thought i should try out how the main character in the short story should look.. heres what i came up with (its not really original or anything, but wth )
