new illustrations and oil paints (BIG DL) update 2/12
It always feels like it's been too long since my last art dump. Revelations looks like it was a blast. If I had more cash I would've been there in a heartbeat. You can't get that sort of learning environment and inspiration anywhere else. Hopefully I'll make the next one.
This new batch of work ranges from jobs I had during the fall and some oils that were done weeks ago. I'd love to hear any crits or comments if you have them.

I love the illustrations, but I especially like the oil paintings. The foreground/ background interaction helps to capture a sense of movement, especially with the outdoor scene. I feel like with those two portraits, you sort of gave up on the eyes, and opted for a big black mess. Otherwise, the color variations and bold brush strokes are really nicely done.

Looking good here my friend! I think I've seen almost all these, except how that last cover came out. Looks great-very nice mood to it. A little different for you, but there's nothing wrong with that.
Since I am in the fortunate position of seeing these before and giving my critical thoughts previously, I can just sing your praises and tell you how good everything is!
Truthfully , you are getting better with every painting. It's awesome to see your improvements and skills develop-gets my ass motivated.. Hopefully we'll get to hang soon and have some coffee and a meatball.

Whoa! Very nice work. Love the portraits, especially the profile of the red-haired girl, and that one of the Dino in the Ice. Reminds me of Wyeth in the way you've composed the piece, the way it's painted and how you're telling the story.My Sketchbook :: Phantasmagoria

Righteous batch of work Rich, they're just getting better and better
Your comps and colors/moods are excellent. The thing I'd actually like to see a little more attention to is some iffy drawing/structure here and there. The bodies of the two men in the slit throat piece (particularly the hands and that sword) are a good example of this I think. It's there enough to understand what's going on, but it's not quite selling me on there being a solid structure in them. Now, unless I'm mistaken, I remember that you were in a stupid time constraint on this one, but it still looks to me like a piece which needs a little more love for the sake of the portfolio.
Another thing I'd like to see more are some sharper/punchy key areas with detail and contrast. You did this in the creepy puppet piece and I think it really makes that one stand out. The peripheral details still have that foggy atmospheric quality, but that puppet just grabs you with the contrast, value range, and edges.
Great batch dude, looking forward to the next wave
