Thanks for the feedback on the WIP. I thought going with more desaturated, gritty tones would give it a little edge, but you guys seem to like the more vibrant colors of the left one and I can understand why. I'll definitely try following your edits as I continue working on this one ZaneZansorrow, the time you put in is much appreciated.

I feel like some of your art might be traced, they just look too good to me.
Would you mind sketching the main character in this out for me?
Just to show you can do it without.
Besides its good practice!
Yes, the DBZ characters (minus Bulma's head) and two pictures in my gallery DO have traced elements in them. But I respect art and myself far too much to rely on tracing to get me ahead. Everything else you see was drawn from sight, or directly out of my brain (and I'll let you know in the future when something has been traced).
With that said, I don't believe there's any shame in tracing as long as you have a different goal in mind. For example the Vegeto was the first thing I drew right after I bought my tablet. My goal wasn't to improve my sight-reading, but to get used to drawing with a tablet for the first time and a little bit of male figure practice. I'll get to your request as soon as I can, thank you for the challenge!
