how did you transition from black lines, to a barely there outline? its something i need to work on, and i would be greatul for some tips.

I just didn't use any line art in the second one. I painted over a sketch and at the very end, retraced only bits that seemed to need more contrast.
It was an expeiment really, I usually always work with lines.

Your technique has pretty much improved in every single field since then. Congratulations!

Looking at the two images, though, I miss the pop and contrast that the old black lines gave. More or less, the new one couldn't hurt from a little contrast-up. Obv. new one is awesome and better, but just a thought.

I know this is like months old, I just saw it in someone's favs today, so deal. ;)

From"Hey, that's pretty good" to "Holy crap! This is awesome!"

I like how you improved it beyond just the proportions, outline and coloring technique, but also made the character's movement more dynamic and chose to show extra details like that cloth on his waist and the cannon ball he's stepping on.

youve improved a lot theres greater depth shown with the placement of your shadows on his pants and you made the scene more complex by rearranging objects, you pulled the character in ... in other words "me likey"

I feel like the expressions are a tad different, the new version seems to be a nice, confident smile, where as in the old one, the smile makes it seem as if he is mocking or laughing at some one...it's because of his left eye, or from our POV, the eye on the right...perhaps it's just me.
