    There is a nice soft density in your stuff that I really like.

    Great stuff .. love the colour usage ... especially on the second portret ... minor crit on first portret is too much white above on the upper mouth ( the reflection ) but don't mind me :p

    Great stuff in your sketchbook as well ... like it :-)

    The blue/purple hair reminds me of the Nika assassin character from Guild Wars: Factions.

    The first piece reminded me instantly of Andrew Jones, it's an awesome style. And your portraits are amazing, I really like those.

    I saw your feature in IFX, too, so congratulations for that.

    thanks for support! Cant believe so many saw my imagine fx thingy!

    yeh that piece did come out all andrew jones! I think it was the rake brush that did it - but oddly i wasnt going for an andrew jones feel! But nevertheless, i might work into that one and add more detailing as i am happy with the composition!

    The portraits are great. You're quite good at getting that balance, where it's not generic at all and not symmetrical, even when front-view. Something that drives me crazy is the generic face... I even found a website recently for a continuing education summer academy of arts where they tackle "drawing the face" and their example wasn't even up to snuff.

    The "cow95" and "cow96" are great images. I like the fis-like creature in green. There's a delicate suggestion of detail without getting too sharp or lifeless, and I love the inventiveness. I'm not one for sci-fi or fantasy art, but this work is pretty good.

    I do have to say, however, that the first piece has too many re-used brushes and brush strokes, hurting an otherwise well-painted piece. The 2nd and third images are fairly cliche in subject and pose, as well as weak in composition. The biggest thing you can be thinking about is composition and originality of pose/figure.

    Congrats on the feature. That's a nice achievement.
