its so easy to glaze over this kind of drawing style and character sheet in general and move on but i liked this one; probably of the slightly more realistic but still stylish shading you did, particularly on the bits like the bent arm. however it feels like the totally even shadow line is a little distracting since his arm is cocked and not hanging close to his side. with his elbow so far out the shadow would probably dissipate and all you'd have to draw is just a little semi-oval hanging around his armpit and a border where his hand meets his side, leaving the elbow shadow area blank since light could move around pretty evenly with that much distance.

sorry that's a bit od'ing on the review advice, but i really like seeing this kind of cartoony style handed so practically.

Thanks for the review! :D
I know what you're talking about with the arm, it does look pretty weird.
When I was shading it, I immediately assumed the arm would drop a full shadow, and started thinking about what shape it would be, then concluded that because the light is coming from the side, and the elbow is pointing towards the side, it would be almost straight. But yeah, shadows at where the hand touches the armpit and around the body would be better in this case.

Thanks again!
