    I like your style, the women look very feminine (last one's my favorite).

    Do you do any of them in ink?

    welcome! Scary username, though!

    Your figures from imagination are good, you're not shy creating dynamic poses.

    Here's some crits:

    There's some anatomy and proportion issues, specially with how the legs look too straight in your first drawing and how you tend to taper them too much at the ankles. You might want to stylise your characters that way, but at this point it looks more like a mistake than style. Perhaps because it's not very consistent? Maybe I'm wrong.

    Superman looks like he has a double chin, but he's otherwise the expected well muscled character we know. So I suggest you draw his square jaw all around, not just the chin.

    You're right your drawings do look better in pencil, and that's because you manage to create line variation in them. You might try that with your inking too. Not too much, because the thin line is interesting. What are you using for inking?

    Thanks for stoping by! It's always great to have some critics!

    i'm awaer of th leg thing, i know that is straight, i'm kinda like doing then that way, same on the double chin, most of my inspiration comes from tim sale, and i think that i'm absorving TOO much from him, this is something taht really annoys me, i have to find my own style.

    I'll try to do some better inking, i can really do line vcariation with ink, i'm to afraid of missing and have to start all over again (*hit head on the wall*)

    i'm using staedler ink pens, number 0,1 and 0.8, and for red lines a pigma micron pen

    thanks again for taking time into this commment

    you're good at proportions. You need to knuckle down on some anatomy studies, draw from life, and try as many different media as possible . I loved the stockings, very striking and very graphic.

    Don't worry too much about style, it's often said it comes up on its own as the artist learns and evolves. Advice I once read is that it might be better to worry with knowing how things work in real life first and then adapt to make your drawings look the way you like, know how you can strech limits.

    A trick to create variation with pens is to make two curves at different angles from one another that you then fill in bettween. Think of the lineart as an object you contour first, then fill in. Like my pencil example but perhaps not as thick. There might be better ways to do line variation, that's just one I figured myself.

    very graphical and feminine style, it's all so.. flowing
    that portrait of kaki king is fantastic and yes, you really need to finish that wip :3 -be careful with his nose and the placement of his eye, I guess in this position his nose would be turned more down.
    Also because of the shadow underneath his chin it looks like he has a fat soft neck, it could help if you either place the jaw line a bit higher or making it more straight

    I just took a break to post this.
    But sometimes I also draw stuff

    nice sketches here. your face renders are pretty damn accurate! your body studies (if they are meant to be) seems more charicatured and stylized somehow. is this intentional? what happens if you forget anatomical details
