    Looking good, dude!
    I think Solaris #1 may be one of your best to date.

    Just talked to George Mann at BL. He said you were doing some covers for them and that they were fantastic. Now I see what he was talking about.

    Great work!

    Amazing paintings. I love those saturated shadow edges on Solaris 1, and also the proportions on your Knight of Cups. To me, the face seems a little large on the Elf Fair piece. But, wow, really great paints!

    Lovely colour and I really enjoy the quiet, measured pace of how your forms work together. The first,in particular, makes me think of John William Godward - which aint no bad thing. I rather like too, how you have brought off the movement in that last one with the dress and not made it look corney.
    In terms of book covers they give off a sort of 'feel good' mood that is hard to put my finger on as to what makes that so.....but it would certainly tempt me to pick it up from the self and read the back cover.

    great work and far beyond my ability to give any meaningful crits!

    also, the knight of cups has awesome jack kirbyesque gloves
