DennisH-Art, Kino_PuA, Jephyr X thank you people!!! Jephyr X if it can be of some comfort... I feel the same. I don't feel I'm much creative or imaginative and I think that my work lacks storytelling and emotions and I also think that making good renderings makes me a good craftsman but not a good artist...
and BTW she is copied from a photo taken by a photgrapher friend of mine who used a (hot) friend of ours as a model, I wish I could draw that from scratch...
Update for this week EoW

Really like the centaur painting you're working on, the first one has vibrant colors and there are pleasurable visuals to grab a hold of instantly when you look it over. The only constructive feedback I have to offer is the waterfall stream and rock formation that it flows through seems a bit improvised. The surface looks very smooth and slippery, mismatched with the cliff above - just seems to be of different texture and "touch" sensation. Second sketch is also nice!
My my! The environments in this sb are just GOLDEN man! I really really like the mood on them and I disagree on the lacking storytelling thing. It might be me, but they tell me a lot!
Nice colours and contrasts and, the sketches are pretty tight too!
I would only suggest some statue studies cause, even if the whole thing rocks, the statues and rocks aren't that much believable to me.
On the character desings ( which are cool btw) I'd change a bit the proportions, alotught I don't know if they were intentional, they seem too elongated to me.
Suira thank you very much for your comments!! I'm still struggling with character design so proportions and anatomy can be off sometimes. About the statues and the rocks I should have used some references. That image was intended as a speedpaint but I always end up refining everything so some reference could be useful. The problem is that I'm too lazy... Christoffer thank you!! anjin thank you man!! When will you update your sb???
I like Salaryman's graphic style and fancy way of coloring images and I wanted to give it a try. I think it's really helpful for concentrating on mood and composition rather than on details and realism.
