good studies! I also like the illustration with the ghostgirl and the flowers.
Love the old witch stirring her cauldron; it has a really nice sense of depth, beautiful color palette, and the rendering of the face is really nice - detailed but still painterly. For crits, her hands feel a little unfinished, and the arms are very small compared to the rest of the body, especially the head.

Dierat: Thanks for the comment, you're totally right about the arms. I think I have this problem of having proportions okaysh when I start, but once I redraw parts with reference they sneakily get out of whack. I made the arms somewhat bigger, but wanted to keep somewhat dwarfish proportions.
Some progress on current work as well.
I just love the sunlight/shadow colours on that white dragon? piece, immediataly caught my eye. It's really shows how well placed colours can have effect even if there's not that much going on in the painting otherwise. : ) Those two witched are adorable, I really like your style on them. Keep studying, I need to catch some of that spirit..!
I like the storytelling-feel of your pictures.
Thanks for sharing!
A lot of varied studies, Nice!
http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...&postcount=199 - The Girl with Fire, I like. But then I like all your moody colours, even in the studies.
I like your stories, as I do with a lot of conceptart patrons.
There's many more but, unfortunately, I haven't had time to run across them.
And I reckon keep doing those thumbnails/composition. They come in handy, at least for me.
Keep it creative and inspired!
Dahlium: Thank you, I'm glad some strorytelling does come through
vardoburrito: Thanks! I'm glad you think my colors are moody.
Drumroll! I have a few REAL sketches! Such a rare occasion.
Love trolls. I want to draw more of them.
I did some lizard studies since my last dragon, and had a little easier time sketching this one. Dragons are cool.
