Your work is undoubtedly dynamic. You are a risk taker and I like that. I hate the term "spotting blacks" but sometimes you need to do that to push your characters forward. Well done though!

Thanks vandal. 'spotting Blacks ' I have no idea what that means. You mean I need to have more black in the character itself?

spotting blacks.....basically put some shadows and contrast in the artwork to control the composition (or where you want the viewer to focus).

Aha, great will start sorting that out. Thanks. :)

I think you are starting out wonderful! Have great ideas, but I do agree with the others in putting more shadowing in the characters to make them stand out more from the rest of the piece. In comics or any other painting design piece the shadowing and highlights create depth for the object. Figure out where you want the lighting to be in the piece and go from there. It takes a little time but practice makes perfect for everyone yaaaaaa :banana:

really cool stuff! it looks like you are having fun and getting lost in art.

Vandal is right. sometimes you need black to push things forward. the black acts as an anchor for the image - or like a border within the art - adding contrast, weight, all sorts of things. how much black is up to you. maybe you don't even use any. cause the opposite is also true. no black creates harmony. there's a lot of cool things you can do with everything being neutral.

I would also note that the colors are too saturated in many of these. Let your lines show even with colors added.
