    I like it, but the size of his left leg is just way too big, even if it's stylized.

    cheers

    Were the physics of the scene meant to be this way??? He's holding on to some type of cloth (curtain???) while sticking to the wall...He's virtually suspended...Is it a top-down view???

    If down is the direction he is looking then the cloth he is holding would not support the character at that position. Plus the cloth is not sketched "tight" enough to portray the weight of your character. His legs are a bit funny. It looks like he has one long leg and a short gimpy leg.

    The line work: Very nice and clean. I really like the use of different line weight. The designs across the wall are very well done. Your attention to details of the room are good.

    Just a few anatomy and gravity issues. To answer your question, I like the overall style. Clean and crisp. Hope to see some more of this type of style from you

    Based on the assumption that the top of the drawing is indicating the ceiling, your lights are mounted too high on the wall. At their current level, they would not be able to apply adequate light to the space and they don't seem to be spotlighting anything in particular, so...I'd pull them down on the wall some. The lights also are not drawn in the same perspective as the wall.

    The linework is great, very clean. I'm particularly impressed by your wall border - fantastic!

    Thanks a lot I just saw a bunch of your works in the Spectrum book at Barnes and Noble, really amazing.

    Sundance- I realised this when I was placing them, but it was more of a compositional thing where I felt like I needed something up there besides another wall border. I'll work no their perspective tho, if I can figure that out heh.
