    hey dude, awesome work! really nice sketches, especially those landscapes, really nice! -I think your skin tones look pretty good, I like that high saturation style, but it can quickly get sort of muddy when your dealing with lots of high saturated hues, so try to separate out larger blocks of color, after your values are solid. but that's just a minor thing really, I think your looking good! keep em coming!

    Wow, amazing stuff! I can't believe you did the orc in around 30 minutes. I really like the thicker paint application on that one too. I also love the painting of the exploding tower with the trees (4th down) - the colors and atmosphere are really nice.

    The new work in progress is off to a good start. As far as the composition, I think you could use a stronger focal point - there's a lot to look at, which is good, but my eye doesn't really know where to settle at the end. I think the lighting scheme may be a little too evenly distributed (just a guess - I have very little experience with painting environments, so I'm not sure).

    Awesome! I think the update looks great. There's a lot of good diagonals in there now, and the castle is a great focal point. The horse/rider works well as a secondary focal point. Also, the monkey and orange flowers are a nice touch

    This is fantastic Epic!

    Just a thought:
    The first thing that struck me were the heads in the top corners... they appear to be sticking out of nowhere. I added a dragon wing that can go behind the characters in the foreground to create a better sense of depth and I added claws to the griffin that go behind the flapping cloak. I lightened them up just a smidge so they aren't so close in value to the main characters.

    I wonder if the big rounded shapes in the foreground are covering up too much. I mean nearly half of the left characters body is being covered.

    Just food for thought.

    I think you could really make this pop with some more contrast. At the moment, I'm not sure where my eye is supposed to rest. Does that make sense?

    The technical skill is amazing, and the storytelling in this piece is superb. That's really the only critique I could make, but I think it could make a huge difference.
