Awesome style you got there, and since its a cartoonish-style i do not know what exactly what could be better, but i do think the outlines of the images is really heavy, maybe you could try to use the outlines to get a more 3-dimensional feel to it? Like linewight i think its called. But then again, it is your style and its awesome anyways
Keep up the good work! Looking forward to see more
So I decided I hate this pose so much that I couldn't bring myself to do a background for it. So as not to waste paper I just filled in the negative space with variants on her face... trying to find one I like. I think I'm leaning toward the upper right... like the wider face.
Great sb dude, your style reminds me slightly of AustenFM from this site. These portraits are going well, one way in which I improved a lot whilst learning proportions was to do 100 60 second portraits. Different genders, races, expressions etc etc, but make sure they are just a minute each and you do lots!
Hope that helps, I still do that exercise often
wow mate, seriously loving all your work! the way you use blank areas of shade as opposed to gradient shading is mind blowing! love it!
aha! i have a tip for this, if you are working on any peice of work and there is no way you can avoid the use of masking tape, what you should do is to stick it to your trouser leg for a second, it removes some of the stickyness, reducing the chance of paper rippage, while keeping enough stickyness to do the job you need (so you can splatter etc..). this works especially well on paint. you might already know this ofc, considering the fact that you have kids, which means you are definately older than me and (obviously) have more experience than i do :PA second version of the Rogue Trader (that had an unfortunate accident with masking tape during the splatter process which means they'll likely be a third version).
Arbitrator Rhysara Naran and Shrine World Arbitrator Jenning Chase are the only ones i dont like, but that is personal preferance, not your skills ^^ and Corrine of the Adeptus Sororitas has small boobs :(
oh and one last thing, i think you are drawing your full size bolters too big, being WH40k lore nerd, i just had to say it... i think, mabye, in future, scale them bown to like 0.8 of what they are? this is just me and my opinion, no insults intended :)

Drew this on the train this morning... still building up to a final version of MaeHyaeng of the Legendary Sisters of the Laughing Doggebi.
I'm definitely not consistent in my bolter sizing either. I tend to go with whatever balances the drawing. And of course many of the guns I've drawn lately are using forced perspective which makes them seem even larger.
ho...ly ...crap! such a cool rendering style love your work had to go through your sb twice i really like your compositions and how you pose your characters to add to there character and expression
Your Nun is amazing! I really like the style of the gun! Very cool style on all your work!
