Great work. I agree with Dave. Are the colors done with watercolors or is that all ink?

No negative critique from me either. All I know is I like them even tho' I don't draw/paint in this style. The images speak for themselves. I like the action in the first one. I like both the others but the bottom one reminds me of me sitting at my desk with the clutter and is that laundry on the right bottom that needs to be done?

Very nice! Fun, whimsical drawings.....great sense of motion in the first one.

I question the point at which the bottom of the last one is cropped. I think you can get away with it in something this loosely done but I wonder if the composition would be helped by the inclusion of the bottom of the furniture & baskets with a little breathing room below them.

the first two are a little mo' "exciting" but that won't stop me from saying that I enjoy all three. the last one stands in nice opposition to the more sparse and colorful nature of the first two. I'm torn about my fave, but I go with the #1.

The one I can critique is #3. More color in the laundry. Maybe a gradient to white in the upper right corner. Darker shadows in the desk cubby and under it by her feet. The way the hair is curvy outline, like bumps, hair doesn't do that. The window propped open, when I didn't look closely, I took it for a frame on the wall. Maybe if you tinted that window down, made the outside more clear. Also the right legs of the chair are a bit off. I don't know exactly what that is to the right of the window... a blank paper? a whiteboard?

I think #1 is just fine.
If you work on #2 at all, play with the background. Maybe it works best that the transition to white coincides with the back of the wing? I would go *either* more white or less white. Add dimensionality to the figure by testing with showing the other (back) leg and arm. And the other wing. A few more broken pieces attached to the wing where it is coming apart. Maybe darker shadow not only in front of her but also beneath her.

Lovely drawings! In the lower I would not mind seeing stronger contrasts, shadows, and something to lead me back in further.

Nice job.
They would perfectly suit a kids story book.
