    Hey Melmann,

    Nice work there your rendering is great and your style is unique. You could work on a little more anatomy even if your doing caricatures its always good to look at the source, I myself need some practice dont we all?. Please keep posting I want to see how you progress.

    J.P.

    good stuff...

    nice characters.

    i agree with targete about the anatomy, particularly the arms on the emporer and the guy holding the skull. the guy holding the skull has an arm that looks like it's dislocated at the elbow. the rest of it is nice, but my eye kept coming back to that elbow cuz it bothered me.

    also, the cropping on the demon girl bothers me too. i can't tell if she's supposed to be kneeling or just has no lower legs. even if you want to end a drawing there, somehow describe that leg being there, maybe with just a slight outline the extends a little further and then fades out as it goes down.

    keep it up. peace

    peace,
    empty

    got phib?

    Thanks for the detailed critique. I really appreciate you takin the time to look em over. Those pieces I may go back and clean up a bit now and throw them in painter for color practice. I'll make sure I work on those things if I continue with them.
