    first one and broken robot are super cool. I think if you made the guys cape swing to the left, it might flow better and reflect the blue on the sky+the red glow as well. Making the fire balls in the foreground bigger would bring you into the piece more as well. I like the lizards a lot, didn't notice them at first. cool!

    The robot rocks, but I think conceptually, my favorite of the group is the last one. Very comforting, peaceful image. I think if you turned down the transparency on the dragon coming from the flute, it might give it a more spiritual kind of vibe. But it looks great either way.

    Thanks so much for the feedback guys.

    Vertebra - I see what your saying, I definitely agree in regards to the fireballs - I think they would benefit from being a bit larger.

    Max - I was thinking something similar with the dragon, he is a bit too transparent at the moment and does not read as well as I would have liked. As soon as I get a bit of free time from work I am going to go back in and make the dragons body, closest to the viewer, more opaque in a deep red sort of way.

    Thanks again for your comments they are much appreciated.

    Nice sense of scale on many of these, but my recommendation would be to choose your palette more carefully. There're often a lot of super-saturated colors competing with each other and taking focus away from your main figure/area of interest. Try to limit the intense colors and use them only in specific areas, typically to focus attention somewhere.

    for most of your figures, i feel like the proportions of the parts of the body are off from one another. for example, in that last bull fighter piece, the hands are too small and the neck is too thick.

    i really like your sense of lighting and colour though. dnakayama does bring up a good point in how saturated your colors tend to be, so maybe if you rein in the saturation on certain background objects, your pieces might look a little less flat and 'breathless' so to speak.
