I've tried to introduce myself a few times before, but my threads were lost in time because they were marked as spam and never came back. HENCE the version 2.
I have a billion things to learn, like anatomy and color theory, and I'd definitely like to post my work here as it evolves so that I can get hints and tips catered to what I lack. My work is nonsense compared to everyone else here, but we all need to start somewhere so I choose now (and here in this community).
I'm currently working as an artist in an indie game studio making Mobile Games for iOS and Android.

I like your style, your work is really good.
Some pieces are disturbing, but force you to look twice. Kudos. Post some more soon.
The last character with his marvelous alpaca must be for the video game I guess ? It looks really neat ! : )
All your work is really good (plus Korra is touching her boobs which is a plus) but it is all really really refined and clean. Maybe a more sketchy/painterly approach would give you some unexpected results ?
I hope you'll update soon ! : )
Good lord I can't figure out why I keep screwing up my attached images, they stop showing up after a refresh if I use the URL to attach files. If I upload them from my computer they simply don't show up afterwards, and sometimes they get stuck to my other posts (what on earth am I doing wrong).
Anyway, let me try this again...

Anyway...these are more recent.
Thanks Shad, but the character on the alpaca is actually a she XD. She's the star of a game I'm working on with my friends.

Just finished this!
Sweet 'ihhuman' poster, and the alpaca girl is cute xD I noticed you are drawing eyebrows wrong, without the notion of the shape of the skull, so maybe try doing some more in depth face studies to help get that down
Keep it up, you're great!

Thank you for the tips Muddy, I'll try to pay attention to the eyebrows from now on.
Here's a couple of paintings I did for a game pitch document we did for Namco.
I'm working on a new piece but I'm not entirely sure if the anatomy on the legs and feet are right. Any pointers and critique would be nice.
I'm also not entirely sure what I should do with the words yet (I'm thinking of making this into a magazine-like cover and do a series of them).
Just finished this yesterday.
