    those environments really blew my mind dchan, very cool and consistent style. They feel like they connected in mood as well, stunning.

    Keep this up buddy.

    Wow man, those last pieces are really rocking my boat!

    The last section of the character design piece has a very nice feel and design to it as well.

    The last piece is... killing me man, such great improvement in creature design from you, I am all over it ^^

    Are you trying out a new painting process? It feels new and fresh, not as controlled as your previous paintings.

    Keep kicking it man!

    Cheers

    awesome environments as always ^^

    great concepts as well.
    It is fun to see character sketches from you as well. My personal advice would be to keep your characters as fluent and loose like your envos. It feels like the more controlled you again ^^

    Cheers man, you rock my socks

    Hello there!
    I'm truly amazed by the depth and emotion you put into sceneries. I just want to step right in there and breath, feel the smells and the air of those places you create. Awesome!

    As I am terrible with enviorments myself I can't really be a good critic about those things, so I'll focus on the characters you've created instead.
    I really like some of the ideas you put into clothing and detail. Perhaps you could improve your characters overall by studying different kinds of bodies, faces and anatomy in general, from photos, real life or anything really. Do some portraits of different types of human faces and find some neat inspiration to feed yourself with.

    Nice works, I like the last batch especially.
    I take it you're a big fan of m@ (correct me if I'm wrong). I think sometimes the echoes of his work are a bit obvious. I'm not necessarily talking about technique but especially that last image reminds me allot of his LMS "egg" entry.

    Otherwise, great works.

    Keep kicking it an I am looking forward to the documentation

    Your environments are off the freaking hook! The level of detail in the urban scenes is just insane...grafittis, commercial signage....Reflection in the last piece is stunning. To think half an hour ago I was attempting to paint simple water and crashing badly... Inspiring!
