One thing that stands out is that all of your female figures have the same body, and it’s a pretty wack body. The shoulders are pretty wide and then once it passes the rib cage area it narrows very intensely. Try widening the hips a bit and tweaking the proportions.
also that pose where the girls one leg is way up in the air is pretty out there. Look up references; ballerinas are probably the best source of people in bendy poses. Bodies are a series of interconnected systems and to convincingly draw them you need to keep that in mind and draw it so that the lifted leg is affecting the position of her hips, her spine, her shoulders. They all need to act as a counterbalance to that raised leg, otherwise it looks unconvincing And awkward as a pose.
Anyway, fun art. I like your building Backgrounds a lot, and look forward to seeing your art continue and improve
Thanks for those kinds of words.
"Your art’s got a lot of fun energy to it and I’m enjoying a lot of the colors goin on." I always try to pull off different looks and make it a bit unique. I am not a fan of seeing white backgrounds all the time since they show a bit of bland emotion.
"It’s got a very early 2000’s animexwestern look to it, with the thick jaggy lines and bright colors." I always a fan of the 2000s style since they are the product of the time. They're unique to their own and have more expression, style, and detail than modern anime (they both good though, not gonna lie). The thick jaggy lines were inspired by Gurren Lagann eyecatch, one of my all-time favorite anime.
"One thing that stands out is that all of your female figures have the same body, and it’s a pretty wack body" The body anatomy is always the number one challenge I always face every time I draw a character, even with a reference, it always turns out as a wack body since I always go my way to avoid looking like it been traced from another source.
Making Shoulders wide and then intensely narrowing it down to the rib cage seem to be a habit I developing for years, though I always tweak the body during the rough draft and see if it look good enough. I do think widening the hips sound like a good idea for a future drawing.
"I like your building Backgrounds a lot" Thanks, I always love the urban environment.
