Especially since you want to be a comic book artist, I think you're on the right track focusing solely on construction/drawing for now whereas values are mostly simplified in comic art. Though one other thing, maybe make sure to focus on accuracy, especially with portraits, take twice as long if you need to. One good accurate drawing will help you improve more than twenty bad ones. It's also great you have self awareness of your mistakes, that and consistency of practice will take you very far!
crankshaft wrote:Nice work. Some critique: For Jan 19 the giant scythe feels unbalanced in terms of visual weight. I would re position it so that it's touching the ground plane so take some weight off it. Also in that position she must be grabbing the scythe pretty hard considering the weight. Also I think her left arm can be tilted down a bit. It feels stiff and uncomfortable with it being almost vertically up. For the most recent pic (not sure if it was intentional) but the hand and arm should be bigger since it's very close to us. I think the hand can benefit from being a bit lower. The arm can use the same treatment as the previous critique. Hope this helps.

crankshaft wrote:Nice work. Some critique: On Feb 6, the second pic, the girl's arms seem too short. Also watch the contour lines going around those organic shapes. Particularly the long ones. Some of them are not wrapping around the forms as well as they should be. It also looks like you're not thinking in 3d and just "stickering" the lines on the forms. It is hard but try to remember foreshortening, what's closer and farther when doing those lines.
crankshaft wrote:Nice work. These are showing improvement but they also need more structure. Try putting faint center lines and cross contour lines in your figures/faces. Also your line work is a bit "shaky." Try warming up on a blank canvas and just draw straight lines/curves connecting dots. You can also just zoom way out but that sort of defeats the purpose of the exercise because by then you'll be drawing with your wrist.
