    Pretty sweet stuff. I love the colors and style.

    However, the legs of the first girl are gargantuan. I'm not sure if you were trying for perspective or what but her thighs look like the thickness of her chest (even minus the leg guard dealies).

    The dragon arm is cool but it looks like it was just kind of stuck on. The sleeve just disappears under it rather than it emerging from the sleeve. And is the line on his chest his pec definition cause it just looks like awkward cleavage.

    And on a minor note the tree-sword doesn't seem like it should be flat on the way he's holding it. Is his left hand gripping it too? The sword coloring also doesn't match the drawing.

    It's all really pretty otherwise. I really like the shoes. And #3's action pose is really well executed.

    Sweet. Thanks for the FB. I'm definitely still working on the tree sword concept a bit. I'll post more updates as I move forward.

    Cheers,

    Am I the only one that thinks that tree sword looks like a sharp penis?

    Now you are going to make what I was going to say about how it seems like it would be so difficult to wield what with all the bush and with the length and width of the blade being so long a 2 hand grip would be preferable....really sound incredibly filthy and awkward.D:

    When I first scrolled down I thought wow these are pretty good... then I got to the feet, wow those are big feet! Now that is pretty much what i see. I don't see the great coloring, my eye goes straight for the feet. They are very distracting. Also, I noticed that you might try using a little more variation in width or breadth of your black ink lines.

    I really want to get my ink linework to pop- to get some lovely variable linewidths going on to imply shade, weight, mass, all that graphical inky goodness. I don't know quite what tools people use for it though?

    Atm I tend to use fineliner pens, but the problem is they come out fairly static and well, all one width. Would I be best sucking it up and trying to master smoooooth lines with brush+india ink, or (god forbid) dip pens? Or faking it by going over lines and tapering them out?
    Digital always seems to come out wobbly when I try inking- think it's probably because of my ancient A5 Wacom.

    How ironic that the guy with the smallest feet is the one holding the biggest "sword."

    It's interested how I don't notice the big feet, but then again, when I think about it, I'm sporting a size 15 myself. That second picture probably best represents my own body proportions since it was drawn based on a picture I took of myself. I think it's really telling of how perceptions can vary based on who you are.

    Anyone else ever find themselves subconsciously reflecting aspects of their character in their drawings?
