    Hey hunter.. I think you have some prett decent stuff in here already. Some of your more stylised characters have strange anatomy in places, but they do show some understanding of anatomy. I would try and join a life class and buy a couple of books that you can study anatomy from.

    for the colour work I think you need to learn some colour theory, and also, just study other peoples work, look at their brushstrokes and technique, try and apply what you've learnt and you will improve.

    The second to last character is very cool, nice armour design and the rendering is pretty good... hope to see more soon...

    Welcome to CA!

    Cool stuff... only thing that I can add is personally I wouldn't block out the values, like draw hard lines to separate colors and such, but blend them... might as well start now! That, and most of the poses are the same (legs in the "power" stance) but other than that, try some dynamics and stuff, check out the big sketchbooks on here, Mentler's is amazing for dynamics and anything involving the body.

    Good stuff! Keep it coming, and welcome to CA!

    Only the heart intrinsically noble can succeed...

    Thanks for the crit. I have been coloring with photoshop and have not been to exited with the results. I need to take some classes on illustrater and photoshop because everything I have learned is self taught and there are huge gaps in my knowledge of coloring with these programs and color theory.
