    I see it, a bit small though...ironic as I normally comment that items are too big.

    My main problem is with the position of the lower hand/arm in relation to the handle of the hammer. It's an action pose for sure, but I don't know about the position of the legs/feet especially the extended one. Maybe someone else more experienced can explain better, but the thigh/hip connection may be off.

    My issue with the figure is that it looks more like he is actively posing than midway through any sort of action. Maybe that's what you're going for, but if you want to make it look like he's getting ready to swing his hammer, you should try swinging something and see how your arms and legs position themselves.

    Good point. Action > pose. Looks like I'll have to redo it.

    Hello,

    It seems to me that you trying the same style as Jack Kirby or John Buscema in the 60s, but using your own drawing, not simply copying them....

    You could give a look in their work to see how they gave action to their drawings.. I think it can be very easy to you...

    best regards,

    Paulo

    Hey there. I know you already decided to redo the pose, but I based on the original sketch, it looks to me like maybe you learned how to draw anatomy (specifically looking at the legs) from looking at superhero comics. There are some lines/curves that look right, but some others that indicate you don't really know how the muscles/bones would look and move naturally and realistically. The prescription for this of course is to study from life references.
    It seems like you have pretty decent polish as far as comic book style, but as everyone will say, improving your foundation based on real life [anatomy] will take your work to the next level.

    Hello there, I've been practicing on that lately by doing bunch of 30 sec gesture drawings for 30 minutes (almost daily). My skills are starting to pick up.

    keep going, but don't forget to finish this work, from time to time, redo... it will be a good practice for you to check your improvements....

    best regards,

    the gestures rock hard imo, very good line:information ratio!

    thor seems to be a little wonky though. his legs are too long and massive.
