    Did you attend AIonline or in the school for Pittsburgh? I will be taking AIonline classes soon, and it's kind of too late to back out but I've been hearing more bad than good reviews about the school.

    Really great work. I love your details.

    i like the portraits theres some really nice shapes in those faces, some of the edges on the beetle seem a bit muddy to me maybe paint in the edges with a hard edged brush?

    nice ones, the fish is awesome!

    in general I found it a bit hard to decide where to look in your paintings tho, it seems everything is the same density, saturation, and contrast... it's quite hard to decipher which objects are foreground and background, where the most interesting areas are, that sort of stuff
    You could try focusing on one area (like the faces of characters) and toning down the rest by muting the colours, using less contrast, or adding depth. i reckon that's how the fish works so well!

    wow, really a lot of great work. My only crit is that some of the hair/fur looks too much like the brushes in photoshop, it doesn't look natural.

    I like the last one of the fish. It has a nice sense of light and the colors are working really well together. On the second to last one, it's hard to tell what is going on, on the right side of the image.
    It also looks like you have a tendency of placing the focal point close to center in most of your images (they also tend to be a bit symmetrical). For example I think your self portrait would benefit from being cropped so that your face was closer to one side or the other.

    I feel like a lot of your digital work looks a little blury. Are you using mostly the airbrush soft brush in photoshop? That might be why. You have some nice caricature work in here and it's nice to see you started doing some figure studies. I notice on some of your figure drawings, you don't really draw the faces. I think it's a good idea to indicate the face maybe with the use of shadow or just some guide lines. Some of your proportions are off too but I'm sure that is something you will fix over time. I still struggle with that myself.
    I think some of your environment paintings and studies are really looking great. There is some great color happening in there. I'm curious to see your process on your journey.

    First, I would post smaller images just to make it a little easier on some people.

    Second, I'm not entirely sure the cross-hatching (?) on the skulls is working. It's making the picture seem uneven. With some of the images, I would tone down the blacks and whites and replace them with more natural colors.
