Nice pictures, but I agree, the top one does look like he's hurt pretty bad.  Are the pictures an extra in additional to your story, or do you do it more like the old Prince Valient comic strip where the text is under each picture?

Well I don't know what it's like to get shot (nor do I want to) but I imagine it isn't too pleasant.

It's not a comic strip.  It is actually like a book I'm writing.  I just drew the pictures of the characters to go along with it.  If you're interested in checking it out, the link is in my sig.  I always like getting reviews, especially since I plan to publish toe book once it is done.

Here is yet another scene from the story.  Here, we have Rhen (who has recovered from his injuries at the top of the page) facing off with Yazet, a belligerent and aggressive moose bent on asserting his dominance over everyone, not just members of his own species.  Yazet is quite annoyed that RHen refuses to fight him and resorts to calling him a coward and even going so far as to call him a "prairie cow".  Calling a bison a "prairie cow" is the equivalent of calling a black person the N-word.

Looks like you are quite skilled at story telling and can draw an interesting picture too, good luck.

The pictures look really nice and the characters well proportioned :)
As for a suggestion of possible improvement I think you could do so when you color the picture. When you color the characters or landscapes you could sort of trace the shapes of whatever you are coloring instead of applying lines of arbitrarily direction. The direction of the lines is as visible as the colors and one can create great plastic effects by working with the direction of lines. In some cases (e.g. the fur of a bison or grass that is nearby the viewer) on can create really interesting effects by creating a pattern retracing the probably shape of what you are drawing. It may take a little more time, but the effects can be amazing.

I am currently working on a picture with Blaze and his mate, Tocka, in it.  I plan to do one with Heather as well.  Perhaps I may try some LBT fanart sometime.

A very sweet scene.  Those 2 look very happy together.

Something to consider when using colored pencils: color in one direction otherwise you get lines going in all sorts of ways.  See how much more consistent my drawing was because I didn't suddenly go up/down, left/right when coloring.

That will help a lot.

I'm glad everybody likes them so far.  I am trying to decide is I should draw my Jedi character next or is I should try to draw my LBT characters.

Here is a fixed version of my origional Rhen drawing.  He looks a lot better than he did before.  I made his fur darker and he looks shaggier than before.
