MMm critique time
Ok im going to do this for all the posts on page 4
I first want to say that I really enjoy the Ninja Fight lettering, The texture, linework and coloring blend very well. I would bring some more of the texture from Ninja into the Fight, or possile change the color of fight to yellow to give it equal weight with Ninja
As for the characters, Normally I would say that you need to work on anatomy a bit but since this is a notepad you would expect to see more doodle stylized characters like what you have. I would however recomend that you give them more detail as they seem really plain compared to the Ninja fight over top. Also Sub Zero's blue is really hard to see against the black, maybe lighten it up a bit to look more icey blue like his costume in the games.
Great work on the sketchy style and detail for all the pictures you ahve made, the lettering also goes well with your stylization and gives the character a disturbed feeling. I dont find any flaw in the level of detail, but I would recomend going back through with white and sketching out the highlights, that will make the images "pop" more and give the viewer a sense of depth that will keep them looking for longer periods. This technique also works really well traditionally on brown paper.
The only other improvement I can see is that the final picture doesnt have as much detail going on, I would recomend adding more trees like the to give it that foresty feel you captured so well in the first one.
I actually prefered the color depth of your first submission of the cat, but I do agree with JKA on the need to have it feel like it was done on the paper, See if you can bring that color back some by painting over just the darker areas, or maybe even doing a hardlight layer over it with about %50 opacity. I also like the introduction of the words, but I think if you did either a stamp or a hand font it would feel more notepady
For the owl, you stepped up the detail in this one and blended the lines really well, but the image seems pretty simple still like JKA was saying, I would try adding a hint of a background, maybe a tree or more words like the last one since the owl seems really alone.
For the mask first, Im definately liking the bold ink work, but when you put in all the skribbled notes you lost me, Try making more bold shapes or maybe just increase the size of the face.
As for your second entry, you really lost that charm of the bold inkwork, While the image did improve with your edit on the sketchy part even without adding the boldness, The part were the knife comes through clashes so much, try using a lighter color on the edges of the rip to make it seem less like an inkspill and more like an actuall rip with depth. Also the knife poking though needs to be either more reall or more inky to feel incoperated. Right now it is just a blurry thing that is hard to see., Try having the knife cast a shadow.
I know what you mean by Oklahoma (sadly), Im currently stationed at Tinker AFB near OKC.
As for your work, I agree with JKA the first one does seem traced and doesnt really mesh with the background. You could try making it feel like a sticker if you really want it to work, otherwise try to make it seem more sketchlike and give it some background
For Reptile, I know its just a draft and the white is gonna be erased. I like the depth your making on the face under the maks, make sure the whole character gets that, also good work on the hand, the details are well done. I would maybe make the acide give off a little bit of light and create highlights instead of casting a shadow, but thats just a style choice since acid doesnt usually glow. Im looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
Im loving the style of this, expecially the tiny cross hatching. While symplistic images can work tho, I think this could benefit from a little more detail since it seems to be top heavy try bringing the image down a little on the page, and maybe instead of a blurry glow, use that great cross hatching to bring the glow in.
You did a good job sketching out the profile of the fox and even the little oragami was a nice touch. What really lost me was the coloring, it does seem rushed like JKA said, its really blotchy and doesnt flow. Try solidifying the color a little and then work in the fur texture with that sketchy linework of yours. Also the doodles in the background, particularly the color ones clash too much and draw attention away from the good parts of the drawing.
Usually when people edit their work, the image gets better, but it looks like you got upset and just slapped some junk on real quick before re-posting causing the quality to actually go down. As for the B+, I figure you go the idea from my post, and I do like putting grades on mine to give the image more of a homework feel, but if you notice, I made the grade in mine look like a stamp, and in previous images I made it look hand written with a red marker, but what you have is a solid brush on that looks more like a piece of plastic cutout. I dont mind you borrowing the idea, but when you do it low quality like that it looks like you just want to take the easy route rather then put some time. Keep in mind, my work takes me well over 6 hours at minimum, some times I take 40 hours on a well crafted painting.
Also, im unclear as to what the 3 new black marks on the side of the fox's nose are? At first glace I thought they were 3 more noses...
