    Hi Brian. I've just checked out your art. I see most of your art is colored except for the penciled knight. Art in color is fine, but there are beasts out there with the skill to make your head spin, just like mine. I don't want to get you discouraged, but i think that basics have to be conquered first, and that would be raw penciles and blank piece of paper. Draw, draw, draw... The more u do it the better u get. Get some comic books, which I'm sure u have. Use comics as a reference. Staging, anatomy, lighting, etc.
    You are talented, but without practice there is no moving forward. To stand out, that's the goal. Send some more stuff and good luck.

    Your colour could use work -- for example, in the last scene, you wouldn't just have blue, you'd have greens and purples as well, and maybe even some warmer colours to bring the viewer's eye towards something in particular if you wanted. And you seem to use saturated colours with all your pictures, and monochrome.

    I like the picture with the valley and the tower, you can see the atmosphere affecting the valley and rocks in colour and that's great.

    Brian I really think you would benefit from studying the effects of light. This will help immensely in your rendering. It will let you know exactly what value to put where and why. As it is, it looks like a lot of guess work with the lighting or very understated lighting. You need to study core shadow, form shadow, and cast shadow. Once you have these down your images will have much more form overall.

    I know you said you weren't very knowledgeable at adding other colors, but experiment with that too. Just dig in. It's the only way to learn. And remember, each piece of art we struggle with isn't necessarily a failure. It makes the next one a little bit better. It took a whole lot of crappy drawings for the pros to get where they are at now, and they were absolutely necessary. So don't get discouraged if it looks bad at first. Keep trying. Push through it and you'll get better at color with time.

    Thanks man, I really appreciate it! I'll let you in on a little secret- I've only been digitally painting for a year and a half and I just barely got up that blog. I have great traditional art skills as an art grad but I'm not as good at illustration quite yet, so it means a lot to hear that. Even though I know I have a long way to go, I do hope I can help others along the way. It's the most rewarding part of this all so far.
