Tilting her body does indeed make the picture more dynamic, and the fire is a huge improvement. Great hands as well (in my drawing, I figured her guns would obscure her hands due to the strong foreshortening, but I was probably wrong). In fact, everything looks great. One nitpick (not an artistic one, and I'm not blaming you for not knowing it) is that she should be wearing very bulky, heavy armour, like this guy, and in general be *very* heavily built, even more than any human body-builder in the present day. On the upside, you got her face and hair just about exactly right.
Thank you again. I'll try to use your sketching method to get better at art.
(I'll be back to review your other art as well, but this was worth breaking sequence over.)
I stayed away from any super details, those can still be added. Also I didn't do any real shading, but the drawing is on the verge of a serious shading fest.
"Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts" is great. I won't go into any real detail now, I don't want to ruin the surprises. But a couple of clues, one of her main opponents is a six foot tall frog wearing a black suit and tie. She meets a pair of guitar playing snakes. Oh, and the dogs are fifty feet tall and have eight legs. Really!
The main cast of characters (cruddy sketch, sorry) Left to right: Mondu (mutated pig), Dave (mutated insect), Kipo (human, and the main character), Benson (human and survivor on the surface world), finally "Wolf" (not her real name, also a survivor on the surface world).
Meet Kipo. She's just captured a giant two headed pink flamingo.
Wolf, on an old BMX bike with Kipo, and Mondu on the back being chased by Jamack, the frog in a black suit. Jamack, and an accomplice, are on a car being pulled by a giant dragonfly.
Only it's not a hill. They're on the shell of a giant turtle, which is lumbering away.

Nice to hear from you again. It's been like for-ever.
Cool! That makes my whole week. Usually I try to do something different in each drawing, and all those little tricks add up. This time I was concentrating on the background. I wanted a fuzzy out of focus look.
Have I ever told you that I'm really awful at inking? I'm sure I have, yes, yes, quite sure. Actually "sucks" is a better description.
I picked up a book about inking for comic books. Want to see my second attempt? (My first is pretty poor, I'll spare you.)
