    copying someone else's work and posting it, is a touchy subject in these parts. There are numerous discussions about it throughout these boards.

    Using an admired artist as a way to learn, is instinctive, and everyone has done it. On this board, and elsewhere, you should post a copy of the reference you are using, so it does not seem to people that you are trying to pass off someone else's work as your own.

    People around here can range from touchy on the subject to downright nasty at times.

    At some point, if you want to improve your ability to draw, copying loses it's effectiveness, and you should learn how to construct drawings from scratch, without using other's works, or photographs as a crutch.

    My advise, start from the beginning. Post your work, get critiques, and listen to them, apply them. You will improve. I guarantee it.
    Ugga beat me to it.

    I think the colours could be deeper. They look a bit washed out at the moment.

    Yep, Superman #208. Jim Lee has been in my Top 10 favorite artists for the last 23 years. He's been a huge influence on me and my work, too.

    Because you basically copied it, it's really showing that you didn't know what you were doing at all in terms of anatomy and the way shadows fall on the body based on the light source. His right arm in particular looks ravaged in the bicep area, and you sort of half-did the torso/abs area and left out a lot of the lines Lee had used to convey musculature.

    Welcome to Penciljack, alexx. Keep drawing...

    I could be totally wrong, but that Superman looks awfully familiar. Can't think of where I've seen it, but I know I've seen it before.

    Yeah, I like the feel to this... those colours are very nice - but you really should have been stricter on the anatomy before you got too deep into it.

    Not bad at all! Both arms are a bit too big compare with the rest though. I see an issue also a bit of confusion on his right arm bicipit that one with cast shadow. I like it...It's Wolvie hided behind, isn't it?
