Stpete: thank you good sir!
Good, solid work all around. Nice studies, I think you have a good understanding of light and form.
One of the first things I noticed when I looked at your images (not your studies but your own work) is that they all felt like good beginnings, even your environment work. Your environments lack ideas. I think they could use more ideas, and what I mean by ideas is having more "going on" in them. There doesn't need to be figures or any kind of action going on in them but more "stuff" if you will. Another thing that will also help is spending more time designing, detailing and texturing all the elements in your enviro (maybe not every part exactly the same but areas of focus). I could go on with suggestions. If you want, you can PM and we can have a more in depth discussion since I know that some of what I'm saying may be interpreted as a bit vague.
Your figures from imagination, they also feel unfinished (most of them at least). They're decent to good starts. SPend more time on these and really think about what they're all about, who are they? what is their purpose? if you just want them to look cool, why do you want them to look cool? give you characters a purpose, spend some time having a solid idea what he or she is all about. You've got a solid grip on the technical side of drawing and painting, you can crank out something amazing with more time spent concepting. That mech you did looks awesome and I think is probably your most finished piece on this page. The background, however, could use a bit more lovin. Look at some of your favourite artist who make similar images and see what they're doing, and really analyze what they're doing.
Anyways man, I like what you have here. Keep pushing yourself. Rock on!
