    hey, good sketches. i like the rendering on the batman!
    only crit is, your figures are very stiff, try to get more flow in it. i made a little overpaint, to demonstrate what i mean (hope you don't mind).

    Not perfect, but pretty solid pieces.
    Batman's torso feels abit to flat for a solid, well built character.

    Just keep having fun, and draw some stuff from life and reference too.

    there is definite skill and potential here. You've got some great work posted, and it looks like all you might need to really boost your artwork into a higher level of dynamicity is some slightly smoother poses. That first batman piece you have inked is wonderful - it shows awareness of form, muscle, and you clearly understand what it means to add some shading.

    The only real crit I have, and this can *easily* and sometimes I attribute it to just the way a persons scanner is, is that your iron man pencils with the values and the wings of that dragon have some grainier looking shading. If its with the scanner, all I know to suggest is to scan at a higher DPI and then photoshop it down to about 100 because 100 DPI is 1 inch on Photoshop.

    I don't know how advanced you are with graphite, but your pen and ink looks pretty good.

    On the off chance you didn't know the following already: start with a harder lead such as a 2H or an H, and work your way down the B's if you want less grain. Sketchbooks that have a light texture will also give you a small degree of grain in your work. If you're on Illustration Board, you can get minimal grain IF you keep the pencil sharp - the moment it goes dull you need to stop and sharpen or it wont look as tight as it can. If you did know that already, sorry for stating the obvious.

    Keep the works coming!

    hey some strong stuff here. you have a great eye for shadowing your pictures especially the begining batman. one thing id suggest is to make thier stances a little more actiony. typicaly when you look at comic characters they're often striking the most extreme poses( for example the flash is useually running headfirst and only touching the floor with his tip toes i see that your giveng them realism by making them look more plainer. but to still keep them more outstanding to the eye is to still give them a good eye cathing wow stance. a good refrence is always the how to draw marvel books they usually give methods on how to compose an action figure.
    it would be great to see some bold colour work from you too. just go mental with some drastic colours. sometimes they set the mood better than a stance could!
    anyway, great start!

    your pictures are nicely rendered, anatomy is ok but poses are 2 dimensional, stiff and undynamic. This is the are you should practise, to get natural balance, feeling and dynamic into characters. maybe reference studies from the real life photos?

    La Maquina Tanguera (The Tango Machine)

    haracter design for a poster made for promoting a play called La Maquina Tangera ( The Tango Machine) the director's idea was that of a bandoneon fueled by steam or something like that so I drew a clasic bandoneon player with some steampunk elements. It was really rushed, like for the next day but in the end he loved the piece. Ill upload the colored version later.
