    Great stuff here! Keep em coming!
    *are you using Photoshop or Painter IX? (or are some of these traditional canvas?) [the texture on "margo" made me wonder )
    Again, great submits - looking forward to more! Great job!

    Really nice work. I especially like the first one, and the 3rd from last. One thing that I'd say as a crit is to maybe throw in a few sharp lines in, as some of the pieces are pretty blurry. A quick sharp line on the nose or a nice solid facial outline would really focus the eye I think. Either way nice work and may your new SB grow 20 pages long!

    meticulous > thanks. I'm using Photoshop mostly but I throw some scanned texture sometimes.

    dfacto > thanks for the crits man. Yeah I'm struggling to find a good balance for the edges.

    wow, stunning work.
    I love how much you capture with relatively few brush strokes. You know just what to details to leave to the viewer's imagination. Awesome.

    Besides the great painterly feel to these, I really like your lighting ambience in all most all of them. I have been strugglin with that, and to see it done well makes me jealous. nice stuff.

    Smoothly done portraiture, I like the woman holding her breast with her arm the most; it speaks freedom through her body language and her eyes.

    That robot looks hot ^^

    You have a very nice style, but you tend to be just a tad too blurry at times.

    Still, your stuff is very inspirational

    keep it up :p
