  • I think in terms of spacing, lettering and production value these four are miles above what I first commented on. Great job getting rid of the pencil lines etc... So the next thing I would thin you should tackle is looking at your inking style. When you make speed lines, to the extent that you can you should make them all even. If that means using a ruler then so be it. That's not the real problem here though. I see a lot of your work graying out. What is happening is that there is too much visual information for the eye to properly perceive what is going on.

    Some of the black you've got going on is a good start to setting up contrast but you have to take it to the next stage. What I would do as an exercise is find some inking or comic work that you really admire and then lay on some tracing paper, re-create the blue line drawing and then ink it while looking at the original for guidance. Also, take a look at your tools. It looks like inking markers rather than a drawing nib, brush or a brush pen. The variance in the line weight could really start to move you in the direction you want.

    I use a brush pen for major lines on a character and then the fixed width inking markers or rapidographs. Some of that is hard to master, but that sort of practice will pay off brother.

    Best of luck!
