    2 sketches I want advice on

    Okay, this is my first time posting any of my work on the forums, I actually haven't posted that much at all. I'm mostly just a viewer. I have 2 sketches that I want people to help me with.

    This is some sort of gargoyle or demon. I think it's about ready to be colored. The wings will be black, I'm thinking about a white body with hints of blue and purple, and I'm not sure about the background. I was thinking of making him perched on a chimney or the edge of a roof in the middle of a small town.


    This next one is titled "Fat Man with Shotgun." It's nowhere near being ready for coloring, as I intend to actually sketch a background before I start. And the man isn't finished either. For a background, I was going to have a bunch of people running around him terrified as he calmly looks up at whatever he wants to shoot. I know the pants are wrong, I'm going to fix that soon. They are shaped wrong for how he's pulling his pocket up, and I haven't figured out exactly how to do the folds and creases in the clothing yet.


    So, what do you guys think? I'm looking for criticism, suggestions, and ideas to improve my work.

    i know its mighty convenient (especially if you're in school) but i would steer clear of the lined notebook paper...

    the crotch on the man's pants seems kinda low...

    Images seem to be dead.

    I did use the [img] tags... I don't know, maybe they automatically put in the HTML code after you submit.

    Sorry for putting it in the wrong section.

    Oh, and I know I should really avoid lined paper. But I sometimes find myself so bored in some classes that I just doodle. Occasionally, I find that I like how one's coming out and I just continue with it on the lined paper it started on.

    By dead, do you mean they lack motion? I'm a bit new to advanced art, I haven't really taken a serious interest in art until now.
    If that is what you mean, I can sort of see it now that you pointed it out. Will the movement of the people around the man help to liven up the picture? Like I said in my original post, everyone around him is going to be going crazy at the sight of the gun.
    For the gargoyle, I don't know what to do. The picture I had in my head didn't have much motion, only the background movements of pedestrians and cars and maybe some falling snow.
