    Very groovy, Scott.

    Great things happening in all three, but I particularly enjoy the children's book illos. Your lush rendering mixes really well with the stylised forms of the character.

    Cover and some spots, you wrote. Got some more of those to show us, perhaps?

    The cthulhululylhu piece is completely awesome, and your colors overall throughout all three of these pieces has me taking some notes. Maybe not notes, actually, but they kinda are even if I'm just drawing your name over and over with a heart around it.

    Hello, dear ! You kept your promise, wonderful. I'm glad you are posting again! A lot of changes in how you express your ideas now, but I recognize your hand in each of this pictures. They all look very personal. You know, like you individually had chosen every nose, and cheek and eye, from a big mental library of psychological personalities and then stylized them.
    I can tell each character went through a strict judgment of your own taste. From the way how you draw your character I can see your own independent, unbendable personality... polite but going your own individual way... Right, I found the word... your images carry your love to individualism, you don't like to follow...Your characters don't remind me any other artist.

    And there is always something very domestic, very intimate in your images. Your characters are not showy, but they have soul and endurance.

    I would like to write some critique to you, it will be in dissonance with the rest of the comments of the very respected by me and accomplished artists, unfortunately, but I write to you because I love your art and want you to know what I see as the most attractive and strong features of it, which only you have, unique, and what I think interferes with your individuality shining in a full power.
    As I said your art is very intimate. Your strongest side is delicacy, subtlety... even when your color are mature and bold, you remain to be very strict in color tones. Another strong side is generosity, rich imagination, truthfulness of the character, love to details, and the fact that you see your character in all his/ her everyday's life.
    I see it as a fabric weaved by your imagination and memories from your childhood association, books you read, stories you imagined... it feels integrate and organic... it demands an accurate and thoughtful approach.

    Because of that I just can't connect these individually created personalities with the overused market approved colors and tricks. I'm closed minded probably, but I can't frame the old-fashioned precious stone with history and ghost hiding in the depth of it into a modern, conveyor made surroundings.

    I wish those unique characters lived in their own individually created world. If I could I would say let other artists place their creatures in neon and artificial colors... your creatures need to live in natural, subtle world, filled with smells of old moss and forest flowers, with old-fashioned cuckoo at day and gruesome owl at night.

    Another thing... your art's loveliness is in its hidden surprises, which one needs to look closer and enjoy them... Why for example you posted the image of little boy in the wonderful forest in such a small size that I can't even see what kind of flowers bloomed after the magic happened.
    I'm pretty confident that you felt with all your heart the harmony of all negative space between the trees, all of graceful shapes, you put a lot of thoughts and beauty into them... and if life is fair... we on another, receiving end should feel it and submerge in pleasure... Instead you reduce image to the minimum and put emphasize on the boring standard saturated light from the glowing sword... I want to enjoy the beauty and richness of melting snow on the ground... you drag me to see the whitish light...
    I know you had a client... but it is kind of sad.

    Hope you will not be too angry at me, I hope I will not spoil anything to you...very nice people here in this thread love everything I criticize. My words don't mean much.
    -------------------
    I want to say that the best image of the year from you is the painting of the woman in the lovely green domestic dress comforting little creature, "Crawler cradle"... it is impeccably beautiful and people who didn't see it.. well... they skipped a very beautiful thing. I feel sorry for them. I adore it. It is soft and powerful in its gentle beauty. To sing a melody gently is harder. You did it masterfully. It doesn't look like anyone's influence or legacy, it is your own and unique creation from your heart and soul..
    Hope you and yours are doing great. I love how they present in all your creations.

    Merveilleux !
    Last one is really great, love your use of texture. Second one is maybe my favorite for the comp' and mood. What medium are you using for these ? Digital ? Traditional ? A mix of both ?
    Keep posting the magic.

    Drink a good home made coffee and slay monsters, it's not a bad idea.
    Congratulation for making me happy.

    Smashing stuff Scott. Like the colour palettes a lot. The composition on the third one is my fav. I know it's probably for text, but the use of 'negative' space can really balance things up.
