    Proportion help, please

    .. along with everything else.
    (sorry about the quality of the following picture. My scanner is ghetto, so I took a picture.)
    Proportion help, please
    I really suck. But I want to improve, badly.
    I can already point out that the little dreadlocked guy's neck is in a painful position above his chest, and both the old woman's and his arms and legs are frigid and box-looking, and her scary boobs.. are..

    not pleasing

    I'll appreciate ANY sort of comment. Thanks you guys.

    You know, it's getting harder to impress people. Before I was born, I would kick my mom's stomach, and they'd be like "Oh my god, that's so cute, he's kicking!".. but NOW when I kick my mother in the stomach..

    Honestly, I am not sure how to critique this. Now don't take this wrong. Doodling is cool, and scribbling down any wacky or humorous content is totally cool in my book, but I am not sure how to give a serious critique to something that is so out there. I would say the weighting/posture needs a lot of work. The proportions need work. But to say "Use reference" for something this crazy is... well.. crazy. As far as technique, I'd recommend getting way more scribbly and faster. It seems like you spent more time outlining and filling in little thin lined details, but you're missing it on the base level. Get your ideas down fast, iterate them fast, get the flow and weighting right before you start outlining or filling in details. In fact, don't even do details at all until you can nail down the bigger broader forms.

    Thanks a lot, man. I honestly didn't know what to pick for a picture when I posted here, I thought I'd pick this because of her chest lol. They definitely need a lot of work, that's why I'm here. I'm taking your advice. Thanks again!

    Hm, I would just get crazier (with line, be expressive). No sense in taming a beast when the charm is in his rage!!!
