Digging that last abstract, has to be my favourite of the ones you've done so far.
Glad to hear it rubba ... I hope this one shocks and rocks you too.
I call this piece the riot dance. In Athens of december 2008 i saw various videos of the rioting taking place. One reason was the death of a innocent young man who was killed by a cop. Im sure many othe reasons attest to the most recent riots. Most likely the worldly economic downfall. I expect soon other nations will be joining in this dance. If you havent seen any of the videos yet you should go look them up. Shape sifted ... This is the kind of work i find andrew jones style to be great to work in.
Speed paint in post #61--
I ike the concept of th rays of light that you see in the shadows, but I think it would be better if you made it clearer where they were coming from, the sky and clouds just don't seem to fit it. I really love the bark texture, and spotty-leaf texture, although it seems a tiny bit at odds with the stright and plain textures everywhere else, which are the textures I usually think of in a "speed paint". While the other textures might be a little off in the scene (it could just be my odd perception, too) I'm AMAZED you got that much detail into a speed paint. Good job!

I feel like you did a better job making the leafy-spotty texture fit in here. I also like how it becomes blurry the farther off you go, good detail. The close-up water seems a bit off and too liney, but it IS a speed-paint, and you nailed the further away water.

This is really cool. I love the patterns and the textures. The most interesting part, which I can't decide if I like or not (but it's creepy either way) is the "face" or "person" I see under the roots. They look like they have three flowers for eyes... What were you going for there? Is it actually supposed to be a person, or is my imagination running wild?

Again, cool patters. I'm getting jealous of whatever tools you're using, that's some cool stuff.

Oooh, this one is nice. It doesn't really look much like a speed paint at all (that's supposed to be a compliment, there!). I really like all the patterns/textures involved. The only thing I might change is to make the clouds more blended, and less distinct. Great job!

That IS really cool. How did you achieve that effect? It's really cool, however you did it. I like it alot. I could nit-pick, but it's pretty dang good!
....I'll critique more later. I'm too lazy right now. xD
