Hi CJ,

Have fun posting!

I would suggest you consider that Rogue looks like she's about to tip over in this pic.....To give your characters a balanced, well-grounded feel, a line down from the chin to the ground should fall in the middle of where the characters feet are planted.

I don't know. It looks to me like Rogue is taking a fast walking turn, one she has to lean into.

I kind of like it.

There might be some minor tweaks here and there, but I could easily chalk much of that to style choice. Even things already noted don't look "wrong" to me in the way that wrong things jump out at you and take you out of the work.

Good stuff overall!

Congratulations Christina. Very nice stuff. You have a good finishing for your pencils.
Is very good to study famous artists to learn from them the resolution of effects and details learning how they solve graphic problems.
Hair, shine surfaces, crosshatching, textures, natural effects as fire, water, etc.
For figure poses better is to start practicing from live models or from yourself. For understand how the body and muscles are working for each pose.
In front of the mirror or camera, acting, feeling the pose and attitude and seeing how things work from reality.
We are the best models we can find.

the first image could've really benefited from looking at it every so often in a mirror (or flipping it in photoshop). its a good way to catch any mistakes that you don't see while working on it.
