whoaaa, that picture of the dragon on the lighthouse with the lightning. T_T so cool. i can see where you're stronger with creatures than you are with backgrounds, but they still look pretty tight!
on another note, i feel like that little green car thing is a bit too all over shiny, and i know it's just on the metal parts, but the black doesn't seem to bring it down too much. maybe the green's just over shiny. maybe it'd help if you made the parts that are more in shadow than the others a bit less light stroked.
Erotopia - Yeah I think you're right, doing shiny surfaces is always tricky. I always look back at stuff and think why wasn't I bolder with it?.. Ah well if I can learn from my mistakes I don't mind making them.
The next one is a really quick study from photo ref, took about 40mins. I'm going to work on a few of these quick portrait type paintings, as well the landscapes, to try to work on my efficiency. See if I cant get the important info down quickly and still have it readable
