    Hey Guy, thanks!

    Yeah a single book for each would probably be better, but do to my publisher, making 2 smaller books would be more expensive and time consuming than one tomb. This way the reader/buyer gets a deluge of sketch/conceptual art for one price, and i pay less for each one made I think if i end up painting the images in the books, i will separate them, since color and B/w are so different in cost!

    Designs are great. I love the mech bikes. The backgrounds get a bit distracting though and take away from the focus of the concepts. Maybe try them on a lower opacity so the designs pop. The proportions on the humans are wonky. I'm mesuring 5 - 6 heads tall which is dwarfish for a human. I'm only stating this because the rest of the designs seem to be leaning toward realism, just an observation though. The shadow lord is the strongest of them all. Cool design, good pose. Getting a bit picky the hand by his crotch could use a more interesting gesture, think menacing. His feet seem a bit of balance too, like he is standing on uneven ground.
