    too much grunge and brush-fest. i don't think you can call these illustrations, they are more like photo-edits.

    Check if your pf link again - right now you've link to the portfolio of the person who is logged in (if I would have an account, it would show my own portfolio, not yours).

    And agreed with Bette - too much brushwork, text barley readable. I shouldn't need 5 seconds to be able to read your name.
    (if you want to keep the pattern and grunge and swirls and text and stuff, check the wolf, it looks like he has a black hole in his snout and like his right eye is a bit squished, there's a swirl around lion that looks like he has a giant ear, the muzzle of the fox ends really weird)

    Is there an idea behind the animals? What is the connection between the animals and your cv? Oh, I'm also curious how it looks like with text.

    I have those brush sets too

    What happens if you get a client that needs more than a desaturated photo with a few brush strokes? Or the original photographer decides to sue both the client and you?

    Now, that's not a terrible thing. Collage is a perfectly legitimate illustration form. But pulling it all together takes some real finesse, and the end product here is a bit too grungy and not quite as sensitive to the animal forms as it should be.

    Also, in a professional critique forum, it's probably worth mentioning that you're presenting a collage. Otherwise, viewers may feel something is being put over on them.

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    Too much hater fest! He's obviously going for that look and you should critique it based on those merits. Mike Orduna is no less grungy and he's pretty fucking successful.

    But I'll agree with some of what has been said regarding the use of other professionals photography and clip art. And no I can't see your portfolio.

    Here is something you might want to keep in mind. There are allot of people with work that looks like this. Don't take this the wrong way but the effect is pretty easy to create and make it look good. So expect to be involved in undercutting wars unless you can really step it up with original designs.
