I like it, looks like you are investigating strange noises coming from the basement, from a Hardy Boys novel or something. Nice blend of cartoon lines with realistic structure.
Hey Bozzilla - overall a nice piece. Here are my comments/suggestions:
I like the linework and general composition - very nice. The setting and expression on your face do imply a story happening - which I love.
Almot the whole picture fits into the standard rectangular shape EXCEPT that you've cut off part of his chest... is there a reason for that?
The shadows you've given give some nice depth to the piece, but everything seems to have the same texture. I think you should give some more texture to the walls, the shirt, and especially the railing/steps (which look like brown plastic right now).
Personally I'd probably make some of the darker areas even darker to provide more contrast, but that's a stylistic choice. And it would only make this image more "my style" than "better".
Thanks for sharing and good luck!
Loving the overall look of the piece. Couple of things I noticed: the background line work is thicker than the foreground, which gives it a bit of a flat feeling. Maybe a thicker border around yourself would fix it. You've also got a bit on an Escher thing going with how the railing turns down the stairs in the background. I actually really like this effect though
Its got that dynamic sketchbook freestyle feel to it, like I'm expecting it to animate into a motion reel any moment now lol. I like it alot nice job
