@Chip-Valecek I really like honest critiques, the ones that only tell us how good we are just hurt the artist.
In your case I would recommend going back to study the basics, anatomy, coloring and perspective. Also, remember to use references, loads of them
I tend to recommend the same three books all the time, but never get tired of it; perspective for comic book artists by David Chelsea, Color and Light by James Gurney as well as Tonko House's course at schoolism.com, Figure Drawing by Michael Hampton, and finally Framed Ink by Marcus Mateo Mestre (I think there's a whole series by this author but I haven't read it)
If you red all this in the past, give it another run and try doing the exercises and copying the examples
I agree with this. You have really good concepts. That being said I don't think it's because your designs aren't traditional children book styles I just think going back to basics and strengthening that is going to really help. I find when I don't go back to doing studies once in a while my drawings are really off.
Specifically your colors need to more harmonious and I say this as someone who really struggles with color. There was this video on YouTube from Marco Bucci that I saw a little while back that really clicked for me and I had my ahah moment. I'll have to search around for that video but I'll post it.
I always see your posts and improvement and as long as you keep going youll be happy with your work.
