Hi, these are some of my quick sketches. Sorry about the poor quality, I haven't got a scanner yet! Soon I might finish and colour them (either digitally or actually paint), and scan them at Uni. Thanks!

Sketches

As you can tell my favourite character's are Thor and Batman, but I can draw others too, haha. I still need to practice on my 'style'. I didn't use references so my proportions and such are off a bit.

C&C appreciated, thanks for looking! :-)

I think you have a definite style. Some of this is like a mix of Alex Toth and JR Jr. Good stuff!

@Dbennett6684: Thanks! :-) My favourites are Chris Samnee, Darwyn Cooke, Jack Kirby and Bruce Timm. Sometimes I don't like JR jr's art, sometimes it's alright haha.

Haay like.

@Haaydrian: I always liked the idea of Thor's cape having a hood. That's one of them I'm going to re-do better and colour, I think. Thanks for the comment :-)

Edit: Some I forgot to put in the first post:

Please don't take the JR jr comment as a knock. I think with him the inks make the difference. I like your stuff a lot though!

@Selinaky: These are really nice. I like them. Proportions are good, posing is good, I hope you'll share more with us. Thanks!

Not at all! I'd be happy to be even nearly as good as him haha. Thanks :)

@Oni_Bane: Thanks! Yeh it's mean to be further away but I suck at perspective. I'm still learning this comic style thing, so thanks for the advice :-) will try to improve it.

@PrinceZiara: Thank you!

I really like that Loki one. Overall pretty good.

You are really talented. Great art.

Be careful with your body proportions though so as to not make the legs appear too short or the bodies to appear too blocky. Also it's good to consult anatomy illustrations when drawing so you can get the musculature right.

@WillPayton: Thank you!

@TheSwordsman: Thanks for the comment and advice, I will try to research and practice more :-)

Yes you can still be a bro if a female. I learned that if you look at it as if you were holding the object you are trying to draw, it helps. I still like the pic broett

I really like this one a lot! What's really selling this is the expression of each of the characters who're not backing down or relenting at all. Very intense, great job!
