Well fellows, I just made this here topic to show off some of my art. It is a little earlier in my tablet art career so I'm just learning but hopefully in due time I will be at a greater level of drawing.

Not bad, just a few suggestions.
Firstly, his right arm is shorter than his left arm.
Secondly, what's up with the quality of the image? Was it a bad export, or was it drawn on MS Paint? (If done on paint, then nicely done)

Yeah I see what you mean about the arm, and as for the quality, I have no idea why it is like that, but you can go to my profile and view it and it will be normal. I'll post another one now, hopefully it doesn't do the same thing.

Here's something I am working on right now. I could use some serious feedback.

I'm not used to drawing with detail like this, and I'm trying to make it an aerial view.

FAILROG WIP

This is Balrog, from Street Fighter, sending you a punch. The face is terrible, I know, I didn't feel like spending much time on it, but I also wanted you to be able to tell who he was. The arms, are terrible. I get confused when doing pictures with that type of point of view, and that's what I need help on. Tips would be GREAT. Please give me suggestions on how to edit this.

I need some help choosing the color scheme for my zombie.

Should I go with the decaying flesh green, or some peach, orange, brown-ish..?

Well here's the coloring progress if the zombie. I think it is going well. Once I finish all the bases I will add the shading and stuff. Tell me what you think.

This is an unfinished work I did awhile ago, I was trying to emulate the DC style of Superman/Superboy.. I think I did okay, but I know it could use some work.

Not a fan of the lightning bolt neck on the shirt. I don't think it would work well in reality either.

I may start drawing in that style more often, I like it a lot. And it is suprisingly easy to do.

Here's another Mike Ross WIP. Going to color this one. And add some type of crowd shadow to the background.

The highlights look too drastic, like they're not blended in enough. Consider either blending them or applying more shades to your cell shading. There's also no direction of light.

The hair looks too cartoonish compared to the style of the rest of the drawing. Try adding in more strands.

I'm not entirely sure why the front view doesn't have a head and I think that it doesn't flatter your composition. It makes it seem incomplete and that's fine if it's a work in progress, but I get the sense that it isn't. If it is, then ignore this paragraph.

The head/neck seems to be bent at an unnatural angle. The elbow bulges out too much and the sleeve/upper arm on the right side of the picture seems too thick.

His bicep is too big when compared to the rest of the arm and both wrists are too thick as well. The hand is too wide and the fingers don't have their natural curvature; the lines of the knuckles should be curving up as opposed to down. The torso is too short. The nose appears to be pointing too far to the left and I think you can solve this issue by defining the nostril more. The head also seems a little too small and you begin to angle the jawbone up too soon. I like the expression, though.
