    I think your portfolio is great. The (web)design is simple and clean and really shows your work well. And for your illustrations; I really like your style, especially the characters.

    You're really good on the technical side in colors especially values. Maybe its due to your past education. Your character designs have that warp, "fashion look" elongated futuristic stunning look. Are you working towards being a character designer as I'm assuming that is up on the first list? If yes then probably Danny is right on the face/detail of things.

    But maybe its just a style that you're creating because looking at the sketches and other sections of your portfolio, you definitely can draw kick ass faces and details.

    Hope to see more stuff

    watdekikker: Thank you very much, I'm glad you like the style.

    Dim5um: Thank you. I don't want to restrict myself to one category of design/illustration, but I do really enjoy character work. It's perhaps my favorite at this point, although I still love doing vehicles. I'm currently working on some new characters that will feature more unobstructed faces and greater definition of detail.

    As someone who's had a fairly heavy hand in hiring concept artists previously (albeit for a fantasy genre game) I'd say that your style's pretty cool and unique and as a fellow artist, I'd certainly be willing to give youa shot, but everything feels very similar - almost like it was all done for the same game. I'd be looking for maybe one or two pieces that show you aren't just a one trick pony in terms of style. It's also very difficult to actualy ascertain what your design skills are like from a clothing point of view with many of those character sketches. Technically, your stuff is awesome, but bare in mind that you could also be dealing with art directors who might be more concerned with how well your design translates into a 3d model, rather than how cool the 2d styele is (though sometimes I wish there were more of these!) and your designs are sketchy at best - how can I tell whether tjhose sci fi designs are soomething I've never seen before, or whether you're just using that sketchy style to hide a lack of real knowledge of what's going on within the clothing?

    Hi Zephyri,

    Thanks for taking the time to go over my stuff and offer your opinion - it's much appreciated! You make a lot of valid points and I will take them to heart for present and future portfolio work. Certainly, the issues of unresolved detail and lack of variety echo what some other posters have said. I am working hard to improve on these.

    Thanks so much again, it means a lot to me to have someone as experienced as you in the industry offer feedback and encouragement. This is just what I was looking for when I decided to post here.

    Cheers.

    Ps. Love your work! It's very impressive.
