    Hi ab4185, welcome to CA!!
    Your creature design is great, and the line drawing is brilliant. Actually I couldn't give much comment cause there are a lot things I have to learn, but one thing I notice in your colour work is that they're a sort of flat. It might just that you haven't gotten ideas of your background, I think that will make those lovely creature more realistic. It's a matter of depth?

    Cheers!

    It should always be bore in one's mind that he must be responsible for his life........

    thanks unsharpened. we all gotta learn stuff no one will ever be perfect so never feel like ya cant give comment feels like there are lot of people in the shadows on this site who don't feel they have the right to comment cause they look down on there own stuff.

    best way to grow is through fellowship in the same goals.

    keep it frosty man.

    hello I really love your character concepts. You've got a great eye for detail, and your line quality is really nice. My only complaint thus far is that when you color/render your images, you could probably push the value a little further. The light hitting your characters/creatures seems rather ambient, and if you punched some really dark darks in there, it might really make them pop into reality, you know?

    I can't wait to see what else you post... beautiful stuff. You have high potential.

    Is that dinobirds i see...mmmm.

    Nitpick mode initiated- the pose of the creature in 'jealous bodyguard' looks a little..awkward. The head of the creature doesnt really flow back into the neck like it should, which leaves the pose a little unnatural, a bit like the head was severed then plonked back on. The image would also make a great deal more sense if the creature and the woman were looking at the same thing, as this would hint at the guarding/jealousness of the creature. withing knowing the title of the image, i didnt pick up at all that the creature was jealous, or even a bodyguard, more a pissed off pet.


    I'm above inscessantly nitpicking the anatomy of the creatures feet since it is fictional, but i do think they would have looked better if they were more like the actual feet of a lion/bear/whatever. At the moment they resemble those comical claw slippers.
