The Punisher piece has to be my favorite. I think it's the best you have so far.
venom and punisher are my faves. Would be awesome to see someday your own Marvel Covers in a Shop. Keep it busy...
Your compositions work fairly well but are a bit standard for comic covers, there's nothing that really sets your composition apart from guys like Marco, James Jean, Johnson, Adam Hughes, etc. As has been mentioned they need refinement to be cover material. In some cases it would just equate to you picking a focal point and rendering the ever loving hell out of that area and letting the details fall away around the edges. For the costumes, the love is in the details. What I mean by that is when I see a guy like Grifter, his pistol belt should look like a pistol belt. Don't be so loose. I'd say that each of these would be at about 75% of the way to where they could be.
marvel rules!! really rock!
these are great!! the venom piece is really neat, I might copy ya ;P

IT may sound like a pretty extreme idea but print a few of these out at the proper cover size. Perhaps include the title and stuff to make it look a bit more authentic. Take them to a comic shop and place them on the shelf next to other comics. Stand a few steps back and look at how your covers compare in contrast, focus, and genreally if they stand out enough. It may be through colour composition whatever. This should give you a pretty good idea about how your cover sits in reality. BEcause really a cover is really about selling the product so it's about face value. After doing this, if you do, you'll probably get all sorts of ideas. And think "Man I could maybe change this colour or perhaps I could really simplify things so that it stands out amongst all these really busy looking covers".
PErsonally, I think you have a really good chance of getting work, but of course it's not up to me.
i really like that punisher cover. great stuff!
The new Punisher cover is miles ahead of the rest on every level. Keep pushing.

with the greyscale one you need to make the shades of grey in the background work in a different way- for the darkest areas, make those lighter, and that way there is less of a range- making it look like it is further away in the atmosphere (when you look at the shadows of mountains at a distance they are quite light compared to shadows in front of you.)
I would suggest re-working that for sure, and also i think supermans pose is too static and i dont think the symmetry works, or it needs to be made more interesting.
for the ground in the one above superman, i think you should find some reference somewhere and rework that too.
the last one you posted is a huge improvement!
keep it up!
