    Your comics are too crowded. You need to learn to utilize space and compose objects in it better

    that's right

    put that into your pipe and smoke it

    Seriously, the only thing I don't like about this is the girl's head in the lower right hand corner. That aside, this is just a brilliant piece of work to me.

    In all seriousness, you've got a nice Japanese sort of philosophy to the stuff like Mars picked: lots of little details that should be looked at individually.

    But also like Mars said, throwing that tonal drawing of the girl in an otherwise flat piece cuts the rhythm

    I'm elaborating on your points, you simpleton!

    Rob: Yeah, you don't want to go 90% one style and then just throw in another- it clashes. Also, if the girl really is thinking all that stuff, you don't need the bubble with ellipses and you want to move little skull man so he's not covering any part of her. If you're going to try and color that last piece in the future, try looking through Iruka's work. Her palette might work for you.

    These two really remind me a lot of Harry Clarke, one of my fav artists. Nice work!

    The line drawing girl is very nice, but her irises are pretty different in their size. The colored portrait isn't bad, but looks a little messy as far as the strokes go.

    Try arranging simple flat colors like the Jack and mission hill ones, but use big chunks of flat tone rather than custom brushes. Also, try cleaning up your lines.

    Yeah, sucks the dude died in '06. Fell off a balcony in Japan.

    If you want to see some of his published stuff, I strongly suggest: Batman: Snow, Fantastic Four: Big in Japan (He draws my absolute favorite Thing), and Green Lantern: Willworld.

    You mentioned needing help coloring, my two cents on that:

    Choose the darkest dark and the lightest light in your image (other than your inks) without going all the way to black or all the way to white. If you can stay within a 35% or so range of the full value scale, you'll end up with a well keyed color scheme, which I think'll compliment your dense lineart well.

    Don't just darken your colors for shadows, but use lower saturated, often cooler colors in regards to hue.

    Use the same coloring method throughout the whole image. (Don't use hard edges/flats on characters airbrush/soft edges in bground or vice versa)

    Especially with such strong lineart, allow your colors to ignore the local boundaries of objects. For example, the shadow on a character may be the same color as the shadow on the floor adjacent to it.

    If, someday, I can be half this good, I will consider myself a success.

    Your lineart is incredible. Everything is so loose and simple, but it still looks so finished.
