Because giving in to peer pressure is all good on the internet.

...I think I got a bit better maybe...

Well, firstly I love all your art. And I never really write these so here goes:

I'll start with colour. In the 2009 peice it is alot more bolder colours and only had a few different shades where as in the 2012 peice it has the same colours yet had more shades which creates more drama in the picture.
Also the change in style, effects, shades and colours make it look more mature and dramatic.
Adding onto the colour and shades, there is alot more detail in the later peice and that is defintely noticable.
The background has also improved alot. And I'm sure the tennis ball had something to do with that.

Sorry for the short critique, I would write more if I had time. Thankyou for reading! ^-^

I haven't been a fan of you for very long(In fact, I just discovered your brilliant comedic genius all but a week ago), but from what I've seen, you're improvement is just astounding. You went from fairly simple, albeit adorable, chibi's to fully developed characters, complete with detail and spectacular shading.

The second picture is just fantastic! The way you angled the shot and positioned the character is visually pleasing and gives the action shot, depth. In a way, you practically expect him to step off the screen and finish whatever throw he was about to make. Besides the fantastic perspective, the proportions are done well. In the first picture, the way the poised arm is drawn is a tad awkward, but in the second, it's fluid and completes the shot perfectly.

I love the way you made the background in the second picture. After staring in awe and making out the falling forms of people and utter chaos in general, I found that it really added a great amount of story to an already action packed pic. What do I mean by that? Well, I found myself picturing a whole scene revolving around this character. I imagined a story taking place right before my very eyes; a full on adventure filled epic. In all honest, the amazing background further concretes the expectation for him to jump of my screen and finish whatever he's doing in this. Simply put; you made a kick ass background with a kick ass character.

The shading and coloring are all well done. The overall tone in the second pic is set well with the dramatic colors and blurry background, and really makes a treat for the eye. Adding to this is the great style you having going, and the quality of your character in general. All and all, just friggen amazing.

Anywho, I liked both pictures(more so the second, but I enjoy all your works regardless)! You've improved in leaps and bounds with your artwork. I can't wait to see more from you!

I like your artwork, its great, really did improve your artwork, but in my opinion, the 2009 is good, while, the 2012 is ok, its just becuase the 2009 picture looked a bit more anime or manga like, which i like, and the 2012 picture is pretty good, but i still like since it looks epic.
