    your environments are fabulous but you really need to work with color contrast to give more depth and feel. b/w what with the placement of the eyes, nose and lips? they look odd.

    Hey Bry, I really like your landscape compositions, it looks like you spent a lot of time coming up with the most impacting view. However, I do agree with the others in saying that your figures need a bit of work. For me, it seems like they have a lifeless look to him, which can be tweaked if you tamper with expressions.

    I should put up a portfolio too XD;

    Thanks for the comments people!

    So what would be the best course of action to work on my figures?
    -more gesture drawings?
    -more finished drawings with attention to detail/accuracy?
    -more attention to figures in final pieces?
    -more anatomy study?

    I just updated my site and it STILL needs more work. I hate html and javascript, never wants to work easily.

    One more thing i think you use dodge and burn tool to much, try to put colors(dark/light) your self.

    Thanks for verifying what I thought I need to do Sony. I guess I'm not as bad at critiqueing myself after all.

    Yeah you cought me! I do run to dodge/burn too often. When I work on Ps I tend to feel like because I see the tool there I get that child grin on my face because I have tools to play with. Its like when you got new Legos when you were a kid and you HAD to play with them all the time...man I love Legos. Man I love dodge/burn. I need to save me from myself :/
