Dammit! Love your artworks...just sneaked in after seeing you the first time posting in COW or at least i didn't remember entries from you before
Keep up the hot shit...You have many skills, which are relevant for a great artist. Good designs, rendering, composition, you know how to create atmosphere etc
Really awesome and promising.
I won't leave without a note though...
Your images look all a little bit monochromatic, which can be a matter of style no question, but sometimes a different, opposite color to the general color theme gives the artwork a POW and a BANG
It's like you did 95% percent of the work perfectly, the last 5 % you need to set selective and wisely and there you are
I made 2 quick paintovers on 2 of your artwork, to show what i mean...i hope you don't mind. Basically i added some minor details, with opposing colors to the main theme...the changes are very little, but the effect is unlike larger:
1. The focus gets another important detail and appears stronger
2. The color theme gets a nice twist, resulting in a more interesting impression
3. It gives more definition, depth and volume to the relevant areas
4. A little story is implemented only through this small additions (in this case about the chars)
5. Better separation between fore- and background

Almost missed this great sb.
Your B&W sketches are fantastic, I wish I know how to bring costume into my characters like you do. And your environment is still improving, #53 really shows that.

Neat sketchbook. Those little Sci-Fi military concepts are really good man, they look convincingly solid. Really like the way you work in monochrome, colours are looking good too. You have some pretty solid skills.

subscribed. and i have to agree with fuzzybear, because those two minor adjustments on your pre-existing sketches really make a difference. i'm really diggin your ideas and where everything is going but try out some different opposite and different colors in your sketches and see what you can come up with. just a comment to try and make you expand. other then that i really like everything you've got going on. keep it up brah.

Hey stu, nice work on the char thumbs. Environments are good too. The last two are cool although imo the characters could be more clearly defined with lighting and contrast. Shweet stuff
