    @pixeltuner, i see you are doing almost every chow, and that's good, but one thing i have noticed, is that all of you yours characters looks the same, their faces, built, poses, etc.
    Try something new, fresh, push your self a little bit. Get out of comfort zone.

    First time poster & participant, hopefully I did everything right. My art's been stagnating for the last few years so hopefully this can help me challenge myself and improve. I'm feeling a little out of my league though, everyone's look so expertly done. Can't wait to see more!

    Anyway here's my sketch of Erzulie Freda. I was aiming for sad and possibly spoiled/haughty, girly & feminine/curvy while still retaining a fairly stereotypical voodoo flavor. Not sure if I want to keep the purple hair or not. Critique is welcome and appreciated.

    No I meant the Prophet one? I thought that was a bit different, but maybe I'm not objective enough hehe. Anyway, I do have a certain way of composing my characters but that's more taste then comfortzone I guess. Maybe I should do a very toony one for a change. I used to do a lot of vector toon characters back in the day so that might be a good mix-up.

    Some nice costume going on! I think your anatomy need attention, specifically on the legs. Your figure looks very unbalanced. Her head looks a little small and her arms too short. I tried to illustrate some ideas for you that might help with the anatomy and pose.

    Pixeltuner- That's so much more dynamic than almost everything I've see you do! By that, I don't mean the style. I just mean the pose and the proportions- which I think you could carry off in a non-cartoony style as well.

    Also, I noticed a lot of people are incorporating skulls to get across the whole "voodoo" vibe, but in the case of Ezili Freda at least, I wonder at how well that represents her actual character. She's more about romanticism, vanity, and beauty. The skull is a cool motif, but kind of an easy fallback. Things to consider might be excessive shiny jewelry, bright feathers, elaborate makeup, mirrors, fruit; you get the idea.
    Packet Kongo, the tribute bottles that are crafted as gifts to the loa, as well as voodoo altars would be good things to look at to figure out how to give the character a Haitian voodoo or deep South flavor without making her too stereotypical. Veve designs, decorated bottles, beads, bits of shell, Catholic iconography, re-purposed doll parts, and chicken feathers all feature prominently.

    Vandalfish: you're (and mateja as well) probably right. I kind of find myself mostly occupied with rendering and design instead of dynamics and tension in the pose while I'm perfectly capable of doing the opposite.. It's kind of lazy I guess, I don't know.. Thanks for giving me a well deserved kick up the arse though. That's how progress is achieved ^_^
