    Batman!

    After the painful terror that was the Iraq drawing, I've gone for something simpler this time . Couple of hours in Photoshop, looking for crits on it, especially on the clothing, which is something I still struggle with in nearly all my drawings. Any help, as always, is appreciated .

    I would say ditch the pure white background and bump up the lighting on the character.

    It also doesn't really look like he has a neck and his arms appear to be different legnths.

    Overall I think you did a good job. Good job on the face and pissed look. The pose is a bit unclear as to whether he's standing or walking towards the viewer, at least to me.

    Take a look at his left upper arm. I'm not sure if it's because the way you did the folds in the sleeve but it kinda looks like a 2nd shoulder?

    Also, give poor Batman some room down there for his nads! Maybe that's why he's so pissed...

    I think you did pretty well, though the face is the part i dont like, there is no real neck and there is no real structure on it, try to paint a skull under that skin and see how it looks.

    Nice! I don't quite go for the backgraound but that can be changed and improved upon later. The only things I notice were: I like to see more definition in the hand on the right side of the painting, this may be why one arm looks shorter than the other; and his crotch looks like he is wearing pants that are too small for him. I would lengthen it and reduce the highlights. I look forward to seeing it with the touch-ups.

    his legs are looking a little skinny to me. Id make his hips a bit wider(as right now they are half his shoulder width), and also beef up the thigh muscles a tad.

    His left fore arm is bending way to much to be possible.
    It looks like he has no neck or at least a very small one

    Thanks for all the comments! I'll work on those anatomical fixes. With the neck, I was going for him leaning his head forward, but if it's not working I'll change it.

    I suggest making the folds on the shoulder more varied in size; right now they are all the same size so it looks rather unnatural.

    keep it up !

    New background color, bigger legs, wider waist... and try messing with lighting. If he was lit from the bottom right side of the frame he would look more menacing/batmany.

    Art and kindness are my weapons of choice.

    You mentioned you have had folds as a bane in your skill set, well the best way to improve is to keep on practicing and looking at reference. Which it looks like you are doing so perfect! The folds on his chest are really nice and it would be nice if you carry that to the pants. I agree he needs some room to move, hard to fight crime when you have to constantly adjust during a fight. I think his head may be too wide.
