Here are two characters in The Dream of The Red Chamber,which are used as illustrates in book,so there's no background.
I tried some chinese decorate style,but...the computer is not as good as hand....

Nice illustrations. Like shyamshriram already pointed out, the character's left hand in the first seems a bit small compared to the other one. For the other image, my only suggestion would be to perspectivate the plate the man on the left is holding. It looks too bidimensional. Great work.

True, but you've managed to add some very natural-looking and beautiful textures to both pieces. How did you do that, they look great!

I love these pictures! This will look great in a book, and also look like they could be animation cells. I like how the bad guys all have long, flowing beards to contrast the scholar/good guy's short, neat one. Nice how the white hair swirls like smoke. Only crit is that 1st guy's right arm looks too long.

I love the last picture. I think it's the best of the four, even though it's the least 'polished' or toony.

One thing: his left hand makes my eyes hurt when I look at it. It's like it bobbles back and forth from having 3 finger and a thumb to having 4 fingers.

Damn... great mood!

Critique: Only a minor thing... the continuity of the styles. If this is all going in the same book, each piece differs in style a little strongly from the others, especially with the contrast of shading and texture in the last two. Maybe this was the intention, I'm not sure, but if they're all in the same story, perhaps it may be necessary to make the appearance of each work more similar.
