    Nice one, Aaron!
    Great gesture on the front guy, almost Rockwell-like.
    It looks like you're getting pretty comfortable with the oils.

    My only crits are:
    1. I think you need to work on using the lighting to create a more a sense of atmosphere.
    This means emphasizing the direction it's coming from, and sometimes losing some details to achieve a 'glow',
    It also help unify the characters.
    2. Watch that your brushstrokes aren't all the same size. It creates a monotony, and ruins the illusion of texture.

    Excellent work, all of it!

    I really love your silhouettes and such a great use of space, every single character stands out and breathes, great stuff - I learnt a lot just looking at them.

    Hi Aaron... I really like that last one. The gorilla looks real big and weighty, and the guy's pose works very well. I do like Dan's little lighting tweaks though...

    And going back to your earlier post, there may be a few inconsistencies in my (drunken) guide to cricket!!

    Thanks Dan. Those minor touch ups really make a difference. I think i'll take some of that advice and finish it up.

    Again, really appreciated.

    @Duddle; I can scan in those notes if you want to post them to your portfolio.

    Nice work! Great designs. I like the angel warrior fighting the dragon. But all are beautiful. =)

    Wow I really dig the stuff I'm seeing in this thread, man. I really like how "thick" the overall texture of your paintings feel.
