    Oh I see. I didn't know you were using a mouse and that changes things a bit. When you're a mouse painter it helps if you can scan in your line work. If you can't I recommend taking some extra time to clean the line art you create with a mouse. Also, use the fill bucket to block in your color instead of doing it by hand. You'll save time and get rid of those pesky white spots everybody keeps mentioning. Just make sure the area you fill in is completely contained in your line art!

    What I said earlier about practicing making lines with the mouse still stands.

    What Cyp said about using a more powerful program/GB also stands. The GB is for practice. Nobody will care if you haven't learned to use the mouse yet. We're here to help not to make fun of you. Also if you'd rather draw on your own there are several free paint programs floating around out there like Paint Tool SAI (and God do I ever love that program).

    One more thing: I found this tutorial that may help out. It's in Photoshop, but the things in there should generally work the same way in GB or SAI or any other program.

    First of all, Final Fantasy, dude. One of the most popular game franchises out there, not a lot of symmetrical character designs. Second of all, "Stand in front of a mirror and figure it out?????" How helpful of you. e_e

    Tri is right about one thing though. Your characters are lacking balance in their poses. They don't feel grounded or look like they're actually standing in the physical world. They're um. . . "floaty," I guess is a good word xD This can be fixed by studying how people stand, walk, pose, etc. . . in real life and paying attention to perspective. Also in the first picture his weapons are really just floating there at his sides. Heavy objects on chains tend to obey gravity and will hang straight down unless being swung. But for all I know he could have psychic powers or something and is making them floaty but even still one should still be conscious of weight when creating the shapes and form of the weapons and to make sure there is a contrast between grounded people and objects and objects that are disobeying physics xD
