Great start, your vector work is quite nice, as is your animated .gif
You need some more work with shading though, i think the first thing you should try is not using gray/black for shadows. Take a peak at some of NoxIzMad's work and take a look at how he uses shadows, especially on his samurai. He doesn't add any black, but rather transitions from a yellow cream to a rose peach tone.

I moved the HKZ paintings from the first post to here, because, well, they kept whowing up as my icon and it drove me crazy and i don't know how to fix it other wise >.<
So if you're wondering, these are what Blue was talking about:
speed painting and final human form of the Hello Kitty Zombie:
Studies for another character, The Gate Guardian, her name is Principia:
3/4er view and front
her "oil painting form", a study for a painting... i should take a pic of the canvas and post later... so many forms...
Principia and the Videogame Freak (the mini-boss... see if you can guess which charcters he's a mix of). cleaned up:
the second Gate Guardian, Principia's sis Morsue, and her pet Huit:
and finally the gun design for the Main Character:
The reason why it's semi-fish shaped is because the people in that world worship "Father Goldfish", it's their God, so they basically design a ot of their artifacts around fish/scale patterns.
...Guess that's all for now

I'm liking your character designs....almost a Zim/happy tree friends feel to them. Really like the pink haired warrior

I am really liking your Hello Kitty Zombie (human form and "cartoon"). I really like communist noodle panda. On the hello kitty girl on the right, her right eye looks maybe just a bit strange, I'm not exactly sure why it does either, but that could just be me.
wewt sketchbook...hope link works

Great style here! The cell look really works on your stuff. Your rendering could use some attention on the more realistic works. Do lots and lots of studies to supplement the design work! And.... POST MOAR!

I really like your character ideas! Communist Noodle Panda, boy with the fish in his head, emo mushroom boy...haha crazy!
Btw how its the game going to be made? Flash or something? Or its just concepts for fun?
Would like to see more pencil drawings!

Iceman0xh - thank you! funny you're the second person to mention HTF to me... must be the gore/cute combo?
Obsidian Glynn - Glynn! thk you sweetie, I'll look into that eye, but in case you see this, do you mean her right or the viewers? heck I'll look into both anyways, I have to review the whole thing!
Arbu - haha I was nicknamed that by my friends, stands for my political preference, my hair color and my... monkey qualities? nah "Munkee" was just my WOW screen name a while back...
thk you for stopping by!
MarkWinters - will do, as I am def lacking in that area! Loomis books await me. thk you
Blaz - haha thanks!! I;m glad you like them! The game is being made, yes, it's a flashgame and I couldn't be more excited about it! the only thing I hate is having to animate everything, but I'm getting the hang of it! will do on the pencil drawings issue, you're absolutely right! Thank you!
Following Blue's advice, I did this speedpaint portrait of a friend, to see how i could replace the grey in the shadows on a face... plz rip it apart!
ps: yep that was her hair at the time of the picture the study was pencil lines, the brought into pshop, upped contrast (so i wdnt rely on my pencil shadows) and started painting.

I have to agree with Blaz, it's the character designs that are really striking, here. You have some really entertaining and unique looking characters.
On your last image, I like the facial features a lot, I think the flesh tones however are lacking saturation and real color. Which is hard to capture if you're painting your friend who's sitting under a florescent light or something. But ultimately that's my main critique, add more hues, reds, oranges, greens, etc., to the face and also more depth of shading. Nice stuff! Also, thank you for critiquing my work.

More life studies, like the portrait, would be awesome.
Try going out to a coffee shop or someplace where people gather and fill up a few pages with sketches of people walking/sitting/whatever.
