Great Stuff! The Skyrim pice is your best in my opinion! Maybe you could have use more warm tones than cold tones in your pinting of the 3 women. I guess that would have fit better to the context. Your shapes are also a bit stiff. With armor it works fine but for example the visible bodyparts could be more organic. Its cool that in the conceptual pice you showed some details of his equipment singulary, but you maybe show his armor from the front and the back or from diffrent angles than just copying and pasting the position with diffrent helmets on. Anyway cool stuff!
I really like the composition of the jungle piece and the impending doom it portrays.

Matelo - Thanks for the Advise man. I cant take credit for the Skyrim pic given I just inserted my own character into an existing comp, but it was a fun pic finish. I agree the armored characters are a bit stiff, Ive kept that in mind for sure Full plate armor and being dynamic I bet is a challenge to even the best artists. I appreciate the input.
Vigistry - Thanks, I've been trying get more of a narrative in my work, given Cover work is my main goal. Cover work and character designs are my Favourite. My sketch books are full of pages of outfits and Gear, Pockets, swords, side bags, straps, and functional clothing.
Started in Photoshop, then into Painter and spent most of my time there. Then I finished it off in photoshop with some of overlay layers and subtle effects. Im not sure how successful in comparison this is to my other work but I found being this loose was so much fun.
My original thumbnail had a hulking ogre-like monster in it, but I remember something I hear Ian McCaig say in an interview. Take an Idea and flip it. I though that was pretty cool, just cause it was very much like me to draw something so physically powerful.
Finished Oil Painting on Board 14"x18", and a Digital Painting to plan the color scheme and mood.
Shooting a painting is an art form of itself. The image has a much more unified cool blue tone in person. Some of my favourite subtle color shifts in this painting got lost in the final image. I like the result giving its my 4th oil painting and 1st Ive taken quite this serious.
