Many thanks for posting a detailed and well structured critique, this is the exact sort of feedback I am looking for, appreciate the time it took to analyse and write :)

I agree with the flat look, the greys do sort of merge together, maybe I'll change the contrast value to try and separate the blocks...

Haha I've had so many different hues and colours of that 'blue' graphic strip trying to select an appropriate hue it's been insane, definitely quite the challenge to come to a final decision on what to use.

Buttons and links will have mouse over effects in time yeah :)

Also this is my first ever 'official' crit, so YAY!

Cheers bro

First off you demonstrate here and with all your preliminary work an exceptional understanding in composition and human anatomy.

This piece has an excellent flow between the various stages of this impending hoard showcasing the main character in all her lethal yet sexy glory. I like the way the bottom portrait draws you in with her intense expression, inviting us to explore this picture towards her finale above.

The shadows are loose and underdeveloped so I'll be looking forward to the final version to notice the differences. You have this nice way of rendering where there is not much detail present on each character yet each retains a good sense of weigh and balance. The main character is easily noticeable with almost a reverse in hues and contrast to that of the hoard.

Excellent work I highly anticipate the final to see what becomes of those shadows and to see if colour further enhances this incredible drawing.....
