Sketch - One of my original characters
Thank you in advance for the advice!
Good rendering, and I dig the cowboy theme and idea.
Advice: Proportions - his arms are ultra small compared to the rest of his body. Elbow should fall at around the belly button, fingertips halfway to knee if not further.
Lower Leg. 2 Head lengths from knee to foot.
The neck is a little bit off center as well.
Nice job with the hats, boots, and all the folds. Good stuff on all that.
Thanks, Zippy! I really appreciate the help! I am pretty much just starting out (been drawing for a while, but unintentionally conditioned with a disregard to proportions, demension, etc..) and can use all of the advise I can get!!!

Omission Man was an ex-college football player that had one too many concussions leading to amnesia; consequently, he convinced himself that he was a superhero. The only reason why Miguel (Captain Mexico) got into crime-fighting was to ensure that his best friend, Blaine Fredrick (Omission Man) doesn't get killed.
I know you said it was an original character...but it looks like George W. Bush to me. is it just me?
I hope that it is just you...LOL!

This was my first attempt at drawing him - maybe I will put together a character sheet. I may change him up a bit; not too sure.
