Very good! Might give a little more line weight variance on the figures themselves (you've got the variance in planes, like foreground=thick, background=thin, but most of your contour lines on the figures themselves feel all about the same thickness. Thinner near light sources, thicker away from it, and giving each line and section a a bit of shape and form would pump this up a bit. Like rather than outlining. Like on that little section of cape between his legs, for example. If each zig-zag line varied from it's start and finish point. Make sense?

But still, good, clean work!

Thanks man. I've been watching you and your work for a long time. I'm extremely flattered by the idea that an artist of your caliber likes something of mine. I appreciate it a lot.

I agree with your critique of my line weights. I should of varied them more on the outlines of the characters. I'll keep that in mind on page 7. What did you think of page 6? http://dubbery.deviantart.com/art/Totem-01-06-INKS-382963243
