    Crazy stuff man. Welcome!!
    This will be a sketchbook to watch. My personal favorite is the second-to-last aquatic creature. beautiful color design and texturing. I assume you painted that over a couple sketchbook pages?
    Keep posting!

    Very nice stuff. Favorite is the white winger on the second row of old sketches. Color and textures are fine, but great poses make the pieces exceptional!

    Wow, very good stuff here! Tremendously great!

    Liked the black dragon (nazgul thing toward the light contrast). Keep it up! =)

    (Yeah, well, there's probably a reason why all my best shit only comes out after Jenna posts. XD)

    J, it's interesting how you're trying to resolve human figures--with more attention paid to muscle mass than to muscle structure as with your creatures. Stylistically it's an approach that doesn't quite work for me, yet, but I wouldn't have you come at people from any other sort of angle. Hm.

    It probably doesn't mean much anymore hearing this kinda stuff as you surely do so often, but thank you very much for sharing your wonderful creative work with us all.

    Thank you for your inspiration.
    I sincerely hope that no matter what kinda bullsh*t people of the web world throw at you, you will never stop drawing, even if it is only for yourself and shared with no one else. It is good to know you are out there.

    Eh heh. New work from you is like candy.

    That being said, on the topic of drawing human faces (which will be difficult to address correctly, as you have what, two posted right now?):

    Eh... Actually, I'd love to see more examples of human faces from you before I try to break down where you can improve, but I can at least offer some advice. When you're drawing/constructing the human face, my life-drawing teachers always said to keep the form of the skull in mind, and then build up from there. The face has a buttload of varying surfaces, and making a drawing adequately represent those surfaces can be a challenge... as it stands, the two faces that you've posted sort of read as "flat" to me. Your monsters have definite structure, and the same principles can be applied to people.

    ALTERNATIVELY, your mastery of limited palettes and light/shadow and visual appeal is absolutely mind-blowing. I really liked the discomcat.jpg, probably due to a preference to bleached-out colours, textures, and the overall looseness of the drawing.

    aoww man I posted something but I don't think it stuck so if this is a double post, sorry!

    oh dammit jenna, with the dragons! *shakefist*

    Lovely lovely pictures, glad to see you are trying more people. I would suggest next time when you sketch hands to draw from life (yeah really like the teachers say). The way you draw wrists for instance is a little weird and I think drawing your own hands would help you a lot with that.

    Good work and seeee you in class monday!

    Wow, my day is made. I've admired your older work for quite a while and it's great to see recent stuff from you. I always hoped vaguely that I'd see you posting on here some day.
