There isn't a lot of variation on the colors that you're using to shade. Using an array of colors as opposed to different shades of the same color will make your drawing more lively and interesting to the eye.

The guy on the top left has his mouth too far to the right and too far down. It also seems a little small to me. His left and right eyes aren't symmetrical, which looks odd, especially since he has glasses.

The angling and perspective of the guy on the top right's features are somewhat awkward. It doesn't look like they're aligned and skewed quite right. I'm not very good at drawing faces at that angle, so I unfortunately can't be more specific as to what I think you should do, but referencing a photo generally helps.

I notice that there isn't any definition of the bumps, muscles, etc. on the neck of the guy on the bottom so that it looks like a cylinder. The neck also looks too long, but that might just be due to the hair covering the shoulders; nevertheless, I suggest taking a second look at it.

I have done next to nothing so far to be honest. The idea keeps bouncing back and fourth between animation, animated comic, webcomic, and game. Right now i'm leaning towards animated comic. Like the panels of the comic book with slide onto the screen and there will be sounds and stuff and maybe minor animations within the frames as well.

I actually did do one full page pencil drawing of you and i fighting zombies as our alter egos. It turned out nice. I don't have a scanner but I'll get a photo and post it.

It's alright i guess.

Main problem i see is that the guy kicking seems a little stiff, and considering he is one of the main focuses that is a problem. Another thing is the guy in the back seems way smaller, i don't know if this was done on purpose, or because he is further back, but from the foot positions it seems as if they are rather close. Same goes for the zombie-guy-thing being kicked, he also seems really stiff.

The shading on the skull in the back is rather nice. The right eye(our right) sort of bugs me though, it just seems very lopsided.

The clothes and what not on the guys look really good though, good job. Just improve those other things and i'm sure it will look snazzy.

Speaking of kicking, you're a fuckin' asshole. XD

*ACHOOOO!!!* Does anyone have a duster for this relic of a thread? Almost a year since my last post, wow...

So I am participating in this Creaturing Collab where artists re-imagine children's drawings. I am tasked with redesigning this one: http://creaturing.micklauer.com/?p=91

Any advice, critique, or opinion will be much appreciated and never ignored. Thanks in advance.

This is what I have so far:

Just a quick practice. Shading and colour technique. Like it a lot for what it is.

There's something I really like about this. It may be my bias towards tophats, but I really do like this shading/color style.
