Try to make the face more simple. Dont initially draw the features then color it. Draw how he would look like normally, then add the bruises and etc.
The head to the left arm looks too high. I think you got the (right) arm right though
I love this WIP, those characters are gorgeous!
Looking forward to see it finished.
The drawing's coming out really nicely. There's one thing that's really bothering me, though. The cyclops guy at roughly the middle of the drawing--the one that's scratching the back of his head--the way his arm bends is sort of awkward. Maybe I'm incorrect, it just seems that way. I don't know. The proportions look a little off on it.
@MorningTea: Hey thanks dude, coming up with all the outfits and faces was really tedious lol
@Sopu: Oh gee, I hope not, I had to trace a photo of myself to get that pose right, though I'm double jointed so it might have thrown things off. But I think what you're looking for is the rest of his cape that should be hanging there, I just forgot it in the rough ^^;
These are just small things I did on the side in my free time. The first is very DA-ish so I apologize for that but I was doing it to make sure the char was consistant, anime kids are incredibly difficult to give a unique look to, you are essentially summarizing a summary, since children's facial features are so undeveloped.
But yeah, so there's that XD

I really like your characters' design.
And those updates are fun~XD
Keep it up!
^^I'm a girl, and you're welcome.@MorningTea: Hey thanks dude
@Morning tea: XD I saw actually, I kinda call everyone dude, it's the most natural unisex way of addressing people so it's kinda my default
'Nother update, I need to stop adding characters before I go nuts lol
Really nice coloring
I like it~
I made a few mistakes on this while i was working on it but I think I've got them fixed. For some reason I have a real problem with the length on arms when I do anything odd with foreshortening.
I liked experimenting with some of the brushes in this one. I also figured out a way to do reflections.
hey dude thx for stopping by my sketchbook, btw just because i can render well doesnt mean im a whole lot better than you(to be honest i wouldnt say im better than you lol), i love your style and your stuff is awesome, I really like the mood of that last piece

@blazingdimensions Thanks mate, but shell shading is a bit easier in your defense (at least imo) but yeah I just didn't want to sound like a know it all. By the way if you are having trouble finding proper shades in color, try doing it all in b&w first then color over top of it to help with the loss of gradation in hue and such. A few people I know who use painting use that method and it seems to work pretty well for em. Thanks for the kind words by the way.
@Partisan: XD Dang, thanks man, much appreciated. I dont know if I deserve such kind words though Don't worry about it though man I haven't been on in almost two months myself hehe
Speaking of improvement (totally not letting complements go to my head) here's a new piece. I really liked how it turned out compositionally speaking
