I think you should work on varying your lineweights a little more to add more depth to the composition.
That project is in the bag, and those 3 pics are extremely magnified and cropped. They don't look so flat when viewed on the page in proper scale. But it is crude, I was trying to give it a Golden Age feel. In the second book I'm going for more of a traditional Silver Age look.

Because I don't have anything to hide.
I'm a minimalist, my heroes are guys like CC Beck, Alex Raymond, Alex Toth, Steve Rude, and Gary Frank. My interests lie in strong anatomy, motion, balance and emotional expression. People who rely heavily on shading have to because their technical skills are weak. I'm still working out my design formula for the male and female form, but I've just about got it locked down.
I'll work out some kind of minimalist rendering style after I master my design formula but that will come later.
