    I'd love to see some more super-saturated oranges in the wings of the dragon, I think you could still push it some

    Also, your foreshortening on the first girls legs is a little off, we should be able to see more butt-cheek. Overall her legs feel out of proportion with her body (legs too small, body too big). The flare coming off of the reflective pool is also making a tangent with the shadows on her legs, flattening the illusion of foreshortening further.

    gorgeous rendering and concepts, though! Your environments show the skill of a seasoned pro

    Absolutely cracking, good work fella.
    Must admit when I saw the thumbnail I thought it was going to be shite, so pleased to be proved wrong.

    Actually I am impressed! Your work is amazing, can I ask what exactly the person is looking at in the picture that is focused on the little robot looking a the person?

    Great work James! Your style is gorgeous, especially in the environments. Elf Girl is awesome too though the other girl looks off to me somehow. I think it is the fact that you can see her left butt-cheek which I would have thought should be hidden behind her shoulder. I could be wrong though! Outstanding stuff anyway man.

    Beautiful artwork, very versatile and rich. Great colours and atmosphere on the environs, I especially like the industrial looking ones, 2nd one's perspective is fantastic!
    Is that the little robot dude's spaceship in the boy's hand on the "In search for humans" picture? Lovely

    very nice, i noticed maybe a few anatomy issues with the girl leaning over, but that may just be because it's an awkward angle. i just feel like her left calf muscle should disappear a little more behind her knee. as it is, it looks like her leg has a weird curve. also, her right hand and right foot seem to be floating, the foot looks like there's no weight on it.

    that's really all i can critique, i LOVE that dragon at the top, and the one with the kid playing with the toy saucer in the backyard, glorious lighting. keep it up!

    The one with the guy, seemingly haunted by demons/beasts. Or is it real? Love that. So sad at the same time. Good stuff

    These are fantastic. The one with the guy tormented by the beasts in his padded cell really knocked me down. Fantastic concept, rendering and composition. Really memorable and beautiful.

    Great work overall!

    I like your use of atmospheric color. The scale of your environments is breathtaking. Well done. Is it Photoshop and Painter together? OR just one or the other?

    There is a lot of awesome crammed in this topic.
    All of these pieces are pretty amazing, but the the image with the hounds in the insane asylum is jaw dropping.
    Great job, can't wait to see more.
