Trying to maintain the looseness/quickness of the brushstrokes and a minimal color palette. Your opinion is more then welcome!

I like where these character designs are going. Also really enjoying your brush stroke economy. The only thing I'd comment on is perhaps is to step up the highlights in a little bit. The highest highlights at the moment still feel about 80%.
Overall, awesome work though.

Thanks for the comment, I'm glad you like it. I've been thinking a lot about how to apply highlights in a satisfying way lately and I'm still not sure how I would like to integrate them. On one hand they can make a picture really fresh, sparky and sharp but on the other hand I don't like using to much bright colors + highlights are often misplaced and overused.

I'm glad you pointed it out though, you might just have convinced me to spend more time on figuring out how to use them properly and not as a simple trick.
