So yeah... here's a couple pages out of a big fight scene in my upcoming comic book Nicodemus. You will notice the art gets progressively better as it goes along... I've discovered doing a comic book will do wonders for your technique since it forces you to draw things other than pinups. Enjoy!

I like the designs, particularly those snazzy three-eyed goggles (especially when seen in the silhouettes. Does the third eye pick up anything extra? The FWOOMP and SPLAT lettering are great, too. Biggest detraction to me is that the action occasionally gets lost as the panels get crowded. This seems to happen most when the panels are about 50/50 white and black.

Thanks guys! The guys in the suits are Vatican knights, they use the goggles to see demons. :^)

[EDIT] Yeah my panels tend to get kind of messy... lately I have been focusing on using less lines and more light/darkness to try and convey the information. Is it worse in the earlier pages or the later ones?

The only weirdness in the drawings I see is that her arm looks kinda short in the "remind me again" panel on page 9, but you're probably already kicking yourself over that if I'm right. Otherwise, this is sexy. I agree with X Chris, but I have next to no inking knowledge, so I'm gonna whip out the stock "more line width variation to make the characters pop" comment. You can definitely see it in some places, but just more of a contrast between lines facing and not facing the light source would probably help even more. Right, I'm sure you know this anyway, I'm just reiterating because the majority of the outlines look to be the same width, and I'm a fan of those big sexy pools of black ink that result. Otherwise, this is really fantastic all around, and now I want the rest.

Thanks! Heh heh... yes I'm kicking myself over the arm thing now :^p I was going for some foreshortening but it didn't quite work I guess. Fortunately that's easy to fix.
