Well, when I want things to glow, I usually just fill in the basic colours first, shade it completely, ignoring the glow, and then I'd treat the glow as a light source and highlight accordingly. Light sources are bright in the centre, so you might have to fade the eye out to promote the idea of it glowing.

You always seem to start colouring a project, and then just move onto an new project entirely. Finish your colouring, it will only lead to bad habits if you don't.

Pretty good. Although Ive seen this style rehashed in a slightly different version a lot of times... I would choose this one as my prefered choice. Even bigger plus is that your choice of colors are attractive.

Soo. Keep. Them. Comin. I encourage you.

wip of my viking, im actually kinda fond of how i got the skincolor. If i compare the coloring of this one to my others, this one has to be the best. But thats my opinion x)

My tip is that you should put as much detail and care as you put into this, into all of your work.
I think this is your best work, even though it's probably the smallest.

Big Johnny is a wise man
bad habits could cripple your art.

other than that..
it's all ok. I think it would help to see a finished product, the poses are somewhat awkward.
But if you finished a piece it could just look like a style and would therefore look good!

finish one!!!

This looks really nice you just need to digitally ink it or color it with some very dark colors and maybe some blood every where and it would look really creepy.

Well firstly, the legs are too short. Legs to upper body is about a 1:1 ratio. Now, when you're drawing legs, you should start with the 'home base' - the pelvis. It's a sort of triangulish-squarish shape. Look up some pictures, note where the ball of the femur fits into the pelvis sockets. Now onto the upper legs; these are about the same length as the lower legs, maybe a little longer. Your main problem is your legs are stiff and lack curves that indicate muscles.

something else to keep in mind is that when stand the lower heg tends to be somewhat 'behind' the upper leg. The knee forms a weird indentation thing... it's hard to explain. Look at pictures of the legs in different poses.

Here's a guide that could help you: http://fav.me/d46p96m

OMG, Finish this one :D

Anyway, What I'm not liking is your colours, you need more depth in your characters, darker shading, to make it look more 'real', so to speak..

Your pics like the ogre look very good when you keep the outlining. But when you take it in the pirate an the viking it doesn't look so good. Drawing legs is all about emphasism of shape, draw to ovals one for upper and lower leg shaped accordingly. Then just refine to leg shapes, you can see what i have done in the pic below.

Any criticism on this is welcome... It's my first ever drawing. I don't draw... just thought i'd try something new today.

the upper body is in comparison to large (way to large) for the legs. (less lenghtwise then width)

his breast muscles are to large

his neck muscles are insane, but thats probably intentional

also it looks like he has to take a poop

God invented evolution 'cause he couldn't do it all by himself! Awesome Tees!
