This is my first digital drawing, like, ever. It features Jetultra I and III. I'm not sure if their colors will be their final schemes. But please tell me your opinion on this piece. I'm still adjusting to digital art. Here is the japanese version: ([link])

The colors and tone in this are really strong and the colors work pretty well together. That being said, the red background stands out more than the figures and is pretty hard on the eyes, and makes the hero on the right, who is more interesting IMO, blend in. If these are OCs, what I would recommend is doing just their rough silhouettes in black on a 50% grey background. This will allow you to experiment with their overall visual "feeling".

Another thing is that the muscles are very well drawn, but you could improve them even more by looking at human anatomy books and pictures. Look at the muscle structures, and then layer the skin on top, just like cloth layered on the human body.

Finally, I'd recommend drawing from life from time to time, or at least from a clear photo. This will help with the poses which, while action-packed, are unfortunately this drawing's obvious weak point. Don't draw from another drawing/painting - that is 1.) plagiarism and 2.) not as good for you due to the defined edges making it too easy to tell where to put the lines. Proportions are important to know. Human tends to be about 7-8 heads tall, with the average human being 7.5. Besides the obvious brain-containing head, the torso (below head to the point at which the femur connects to the pelvis, AKA the great trochanter) is 2-2.5 heads. From the great trochanter down to the heel/sole of the feet, it's about 4 heads. Remember, these are guidelines, not the be-all-end-all of proportions.
What do you think?

Cool characters. :)

Well, aside from what the Necr0nPariah posted in his critique about anatomy, one thing I would also add is to use images of figures in action or in fighting stances as a reference guide. I can see that you're trying to aim for action, but the poses look a little stiff, like if they're mannequins - so obviously, best to stray away from pics of guys just standing still. ^^
Good work! I really like the colourfulness.

This is great work man, you draw hands and the body shape really good. :)

Appreciate it :)
You seem to have a really good grasp on their anatomy, the muscle structure just looks perfect, you do awesome with hands too which can be so hard. The only thing I'd say is they seem a little stout, little short maybe? Other then that just keep going how you're going, they look really good =D
