Hey, nice updates man! Your recent female characters show a lot of personality in their faces. The "comic style" especially.
I like the colors and the design of the last one. You might want to check her spine though. That curve is sharp and probably painful. The hand is also not gripping the handle as it should.
Lastly, draw those sexy legs, man! Since you've been studying you should do your gals the favor!
The colours look alot better when they are bold like in the last pic. You have some nice designs in the characters too.
Post some of your comic when you are done!
MORE MORE MORE!!!!!!!!!!
More Stuff! More Variations! Don't Stop!!!

Undergoing Massive Practice
Eon: Now that I look at it again, she does look way too stiff.
Unedibleapple: Thanks, I was really concentrating more on the coloring than the actual character. Here's another comic panel for you.
Pistol: I won't stop!
majinpunisher: Thanks for continually checking up on me.
blah....i'm feeling kinda burnt out...but I''ll push through it. Crappy week at work mainly killing my drive. The weekends almost here though! Here's all I feel like posting right now.

Hey, those pen sketch birds really rock! Really really nice! Girls looking good and fashionable too! Watch out for the last one's balance though, she's going to tip over and fall.
The sky pirate riding one of those birds could be interesting.
Sky pirate is awesome! although her right thigh looks a little short to me. Great figure studies! Keep the cool designs coming .

Eon: Animals are harder to draw than I thought. The birds were fun though. Yea, the sky pirate chick looks like she should be tilted to the left a few more degrees. I have a problem with keeping my balance and proportion in check the larger I draw. I guess I need to step back from my work more and double check everything. It seems like it's way easier for me to draw accurately when I draw small. Sky pirate on the bird might be cool, but I got another chracter I posted earlier that goes with the crane.
Chance.: Dude, I totally didn't even know what LMS was until today! Thanks for telling me. Now I know and I signed up. I sounds fun..it might push me to work harder.
Koto Stomp: Thanks, I was having second thoughts about that thigh too. I redrew it a couple times. I guess It's still not right.
Another small update:
More thought into the gestures will give the characters more individuality. Like here: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1194757210 She's leaning with attitude but her hand is just resting on her hip passively, have her make a fist and it'll look more butch, put a sneer on her face, experiment with the angle of that cigar and how she holds it, get some animation in there.
You also mentioned not drawing enough dudes. If you'd rather draw women then practice getting as many different types of women as you can think of. They can all still be attractive, but different types of it, not just all japanese cuteness. Get ref, Rosario Dawson and Michelle Rodriguez are pretty badass, Catherine Zeta Jones has a different sort of sexyness than Natalie Portman, and whatnot, you don't need me to explain it.

armando: Great points armando. I usually don't reference any faces for my characters so they just kinda come out uninspiring sometimes. I'm definately trying to tip the scales more towards dudes right now, I just have to learn how to come up with interesting guy characters. Great feedback as always.
Tying up loose ends here. I don't know if I'm done yet.
Oh, I know. After I used ballpoints for a long time, my pencil was much less desirable.
Agreeing with Mr. Idiot
Even though I didn't even notice it myself at first.
i like your line work
