My favorite is the painting of the boy and fish. Reminds me of seurat's paintings- the "bathers" and the like. Look him up if you haven't already, his exploration of edge in both drawings and paintings were astounding.
Your other works are cool too, but i'm wondering if you're going to paint over the filter? You've got this lovely planet painting, but then there's this very harsh filter put on it that takes attention away from the work and subject and onto the filter itself. It definitely upped the contrast, but now the painting could use a little more paint again

asomatous: thank you very much for the wonderful comment and crit.!!! I think you are correct about the filter getting in the way, and perhaps the reason I am responding to it much more favorably than the original is due mainly to the value contrast... I may just go back into the original and push the contrast up a bit, do a bit more value painting.. or, perhaps your suggestion of going back into the filtered piece might be more effective...either way, excellent eye for catching that... that's why I love this site!!!!

cooooool monster. might be more dynamic if you showed one of his feet coming down over the buildings he's smashing. Right now the focal point is on that apparatus at the front of his body, and even though it looks like some kind of mouth, from his stance it reads more like an eye, as if he's looking at a group of people he's readying to attack-- except there's nothing down there. The image is kind of disunified in that sense. Also, if you cropped it tighter so that the monster took up more of the canvas, he would seem a lot huger. But I really like the monster design, and the pose he's in is great.

I'll have to try out the foot thing, see if it works with the image... good idea though

not much time tonight/today... figured I would throw in some more details...
can't figure if I like the "eye/mouth/laser" black, or glowy white better???
I'm thinking I will go back to glassy black.... hmmmm
