So I've been inkling for about six months at this point. However, I feel like I have hit a bit of a wall.
So I thought I'd post here and ask for either some critique on some of my more recent inking pieces
or perhaps be pointed in the direction of some resources that might help point me in the right direction. :3

Thank you in advance. :3

I can definitely say that I haven't seen stuff like this before, so you did a pretty good job with creating your own style. What direction are you trying to take with your pictures? Anything particular in mind?
Also, do you happen to livestream your stuff on websites like picarto.tv for example? It's a creative livestreaming platform. It's perfect if you want to interact with other artists and receive live feedback.

I've been an active artist for a very long time. It's just of late I've found inking and have been pushing myself with it.
I just, in general, feel like there is something missing from my style, probably due to finding inspiration in comic styles.
Some of the detailing methodologies escape me, and I am unsure where to find resources explaining them.

As far as inspirations, I have many but the main two are probably Shaun Cross & Heart grinder.
Shaun cross because his style is so beautiful and Heartgrinder because of attention to detail. :3

Also, I had not heard of picarto, though I would need a better setup most likely.

It's cool that you got into inking. I, for myself, haven't done as much inking in the past but I think it's a unique way of expressing what you want to convey through your art. I can definitely see that your artstyle is inspired by comics and I think you're on a good way with developing your own.
Haven't heard of neither Shawn Cross nor Heartgrinder yet but I really like their style.
With picarto.tv, I think they have a help section on the setup. Check it out if you're interested
