    Great color scheme and execution. Love the angle.

    The nitpick for me, is the whip. It's a missed opportunity for motion, and the way it's done at the moment, looks like you were struggling to find a way to keep the entire thing on the page. It also forms a tangent with the bat's wing (also very close to tangent on the red tiles at the bottom).

    Would have been cool. to give it more dimension and 3D qualities, to have it come more towards the viewer in a snaking motion.

        Yeah, the whip is the only nitpick for me too, but it's the unnatural motion that bugs me more than the tangents, the top of the arc bends back like he flicked his wrist to send a ripple through it, the long, gradual arc also doesn't convey a quick motion, and his hand position doesn't telegraph a forward movement. Other than that, the piece blows me away.

          yeah this is pretty dope. agree with the whip. have it blow off the page like the bricks at the top of the page. you could probably crop this a bit on the side of the mummies. franks left arm is a tad long i think. the mace part could possibly be moved to the top side the mummies are on. over all this is pretty cool. good luck with the pummel challenge.

            Thanks for the feedback so far. I fixed the batwing / whip tangent, that was easy enough.

            So I guess the whip is not working out here. Basil actually gave me a nice crit with a looping whip, guess I should've gone with it!

              Damn, I think this is the best drawing I've seen from you. Made me a little nostalgic for my NES.

                Thanks man, I've really been trying to focus on the drawing lately, it's a part of my work that needs some extra attention. And thank goodness for emulators, now the old games don't have to die with the aging technology that runs them.

                  Really like the bat wing veins. Well done...
