Decided to share some of what I do just for the heck of it. Most of this stuff is what I do in class instead of taking notes, some of them are doodles I do late at night and then decide to color to procrastinate. Anyway, please let me know what you think. Any feedback is welcome:

Your technical skills are great. Try some unique and innovative concepts to go with that. Makes the drawings even better if you capture a moment that fits the character.

Here's a Poison Ivy I doodled last night instead of studying for my sociology exam

@Mbecks14: Yeah, like draw something happening. An image of famous comic characters or whatnot in the throes of battle can look even better than a straightforward portrait shot.

Or sometimes, an illustrative portrait shot with lots of background or a montage of things going on in the background give the viewer more to look at.

Mind you, this kinda thing is more my forte. I know it is more challenging though. I could spend days trying to draw the kind of things I'm explaining, but the rewards are a huge payoff.

@Red_Jack: Yeah I know what you mean. I'll do more action poses, but these are all just doodles I do on the sides of my notes during class, there's not always room for entire scenes haha.

But I'll absolutely draw more action packed doodles, should be fun, and a nice change to just heroes standing around

Here's a drawing I did for fun while goofing off in class again. I'm pretty happy with it, I think it turned out alright. Let me know what you think! But if you have comments, post them here.

@Mbecks14: Honestly, on my first look Batman's arms look a tad short. When I look at them individually I can see how the perspective works. But when I pan out and look at the big picture the same problem occurs again. Not exactly sure what's going on.

Still, it's a lot better than what I've come up with these days. I'm rather fickle and I never have enough patience to give my sketches any proper detail. I've got a lot of 'em but they're all mediocre at best.

@gunmetalgrey: Hm I think I see what you're talking about. Maybe it's because the image gets distorted in the post, and is expanded to regular size when clicked to full view?

I was more worried about the legs and the cape. I think I made both of their legs a little too long, and I'm not sure if the direction of them is exactly right.

@Mbecks14: Now that you pointed it out, that may be why the arms look short when viewing the whole thing. My brain is perhaps processing the proportions on all the limbs at once and used the legs as the standard.

@gunmetalgrey: Yeah I see it too, I think that's it. Now it's going to bother me haha maybe I can fix it in photoshop

@Mbecks14: It works with Joker though, probably because of his usual tall and lanky build.

Colored and tweaked in photoshop. The legs are still a little long on Batman, but I didn't want to edit it too much and end up ruining it completely.

I envy people who know how to draw. Ive wanted to be a writer for cartoons and comics since I was 12 but not till now (20) do I realize I need to draw. Not chance in hell Im going to and Art Acadamy, so all I can do is practice and use the 100 dollars in drawing books to good use. Nice drawings, if eating brains would give me knowledge on drawing, yours would get eaten.

Thanks man :) That's the plan. Maybe not comic books, but I'm an illustration major so something art related.
