I like them all but the samurai battle one is my favorite, love the shading and the way you colored the background :D
you have a really neat style

I can dig it, quite a unique style you've got there, not bad If i say so myself.

Its in the Goldilocks area, I don't hate it, but I cannot say its amazing or impressive, that said it serves its purpose and that's all it needs to do.

Indeed, indulge in the style a bit too much.

I would probably work a little more on your figure drawing, especially action posses. you can be a fantastic artist but in the comic book world it's essential to know how to pose your subjects in such ways as they don't seem so lifeless and still. Foreshortening is a huge factor in it as well.

If you haven't already, I would pick up How To Draw Comics The Marvel Way by Stan Lee and John Buscema. It's a fantastic book that all aspiring comic book artists should own. Hell I don't draw comics and I own it, it's still a very useful source.

Good luck!

Yeah, my figure drawing is pretty bad compared to my traditional pencil life studies. That book looks really helpful, thanks for the help. :)
