Great job on the proportions and anatomy. Honestly i wouldnt have been able to make this look so even, ie, i wouldve made a leg too short or forgot a shoulder or something lol, but whats goin on with his left arm? I love the right one, hes got a killer bicep there (jealous)
.... Avatar any one? On the whole I would say it's a good pose with some decent strong lines. I also think if you tightened up the proportions on the face it would read as a lot more realistic- But hey, who am I to talk about proportions- my people drawn with no reference always come out cartoony. Especially the sketches.

You're welcome but I meant it, I'm going to steal your talent now! I'm adding a lot of new characters to my comic, most of them are people(or they look like people). I've been practicing drawing them so much in the past week, my hands feel like there are bleeding!
I wish I had experience drawing cartoonish characters ...or poeple at all(all I've done is portraiture, using grids and such)
One thing you might try doing is creating an unofficial sketch "comic" for practice. Find a sketchbook and just sketch away 4 four-panel scenes that no one will ever see, and do at least one page a day. That can help a lot.

right now I've been, writing out the story for the comic, then doing a semi-detailed sketch of all the panels making changes here and there as I see a need to change things, then drawing the final page based off of all the panels that I thought were good enough to keep from the sketches, again making any changes that are necessary.
Adding what you said to the list will probably help out a ton! the only problem I might have is, I only put about an hour or two towards making the comic each day(I need to do way more), and this will probably run out my patience
Thanks for the advice!, I'll need to try to work that in as often as I can.
Wow! I hope that one day I can draw something like this with no reference! When I tried a few times to draw without a model, it has always looked pretty fucked up, anatomically speaking... And this is just great!
