There will be more devolving into scribbliness to signify that. I can't think of another way that won't make it too busy.

I still agree with pkmays. I mean, with the shadow underneath his body, it still makes it look as if he is on a separate plane, DESPITE the fact that you mentioned the background is not supposed to be in conjunction with the characters themselves. If the shadow is to be used, then wouldn't it be more skewed to fit the strange inclination of the background? I would try removing it to see if there is a difference in the strange perspective it might be creating. Just a general opinion, though.
my back hurts...

This si looking really cool. I like the idea for this one, hehe. I've nothing much to c&c here, seems everyone else got to it before me. I do agree about the background... it looks a bit as if the ground is rounded and slanting upwards. Hard to explain.

I think the anathomy after the last edit looks just great. I also really like the texture and detail on the pants. Maybe the dog's head is a bit small?

Brilliant work. One complaint, though. In the latest update, the guy's left arm looks a bit detached from the rest of his body, if you get what I mean :-\.

Mostly finalized for now.

I ain't changing the background.

The crit about the arm seems correct, I will adress it soon.

Thank you everybody for all your help!

this is a good style, I definitely like the difference between the main focus/character and the background.

while you're fixing the arm, you might want to look into the pose of his left arm as well. in a more natural /correct pose
we would be looking head-on on his elbow, meaning it would be raised much more.

try the pose he's got it in now, you need to twist your arm to an extreme you would never when grabbing a hilt to take it out

I actually took the pose and snapped a picture (no, I'm not sharing) and the arm position seems comfortable enough.
