I am an artist residing in the Uk. I have a background in fine art, but am trying to expand upon oils and acrylics and practice my digital skills with hopes of returning to my first loves of illustration, comic books and character and creature creation.
Please comment or critique my work. I only seek to improve!

Your creatures give me chills! Very evil, I like this dark style.
I see some anatomical issues with the humanoid characters, mainly the hands and feet. For example, that floating/jumping one has too small feet.
Very interesting ideas here. I like the creature in post #3!
The sun priest's sceptre is reversible,as the twilight hours are just as sacred as midday, sunlight at the top, and darkness represented at the bottom.
The censer is held at the correct height to correspond with the sun's movements across the sky.
His legs are also bound, so he can only walk at a measured and consistent pace around the cathedral grounds, just like the sun across the firmament.
Traditional performance of the Dance of King Julius, who repelled a rebel incursion upon his kingdom.
The shuriken is the air, the voice of the king, of reason and diplomacy, the halberd stands proud and strong, and is always followed by the flag of blood, which flowed from his enemies during the ensuing war, and most importantly of all the underhanded blade, which assured victory for the king even when all was thought lost.
E.O.W 228 Arachnid's Lair
"The Widow's Garden"
During the reign of the Mad King, may subjects were sent to "play in his gardens" for the slightest error. Terrible things lurked within the wooded gardens, and death would be swift to those who entered. The spiders, who had grown fat on human flesh, soon dominated, turning the entire wood into one large, desolate nest, devoid of all other life.
After the fall of the Mad King, several armies have been routed trying to cleanse the horrors from the palace doorstep, so now the kingdom waits for a hero brave or foolhardy enough to try and bring life back to the land.
Pokemon redesign C.O.W 319: Haunter.
Boris the loveable bodyguard. All his life Boris had been told he was stupid, so upon finding a rubric's cube when he was a kid he made a vow to solve it and prove his intelligence to everyone.
Several decades later he is still trying, but hasn't given up.
Believing it makes him smarter, because all the clever kids used to wear them, he dons a worn out sweater, and, coupled with a good sit down on his trusty "Thinking box" the cube's completion can't be far away.

C.O.W: 302 Glamorous Griffin.
Neon Moonlight Griffin
The moonlight griffin pledges allegiance to the moon, not the sun as is common with other griffin species.
Its colours change with its mood, and many a foolish adventurer's last sight is the peaceful blue of the forest at night suddenly shifting to an angry glow of red.
Hi. I really like the traditional piece in your first post, great atmosphere. Keep an eye on your values, some of these shadows look too dark to me. Whereabouts in the uk are you from? I'm in sheffield.
I love how unique and interesting your subject material is. I'd love to see some studies coming out of your books. Keep pushing that envelope, woo!
Thanks, a lot is lost through the photography as my paintings are quite glossy, so I have to take them in low light and then mess around with the levels and stuff to get rid of the sheen. There are lots of subtle colours in the background that just disappear in the photo.
Please keep an eye on my fine art thread too! Link in my signature.
Also, I hail from the deepest depths of Essex.
Guardian of the broken gate
For the sin of falling in love with a mortal the guardian was forever banished from the light to guard the broken gate in the abyss.
An angel's heart is a powerful and greatly feared weapon. Each shot from her cannon drags a shard of her heart with it to pierce the enemy and poison their blood with holy light. As more and more of her heart is torn away, soon all that is left is a black hollow. Incapable of feeling, the love for which she sacrificed everything is but a forgotten dream.
And so is born the fool at the gate.

Your line work on this last Chow was really powerful, i odn't know how, but you lost something with the final.
But anyway, good pieces, i hope to see more ^^
Thanks Madaoway I always struggle to maintain some of the energy of the pencils when painting over them. If anyone has any tips or can point me towards any tutorials to this effect I would be very grateful.
I like the texture of the braid!! It looks like it was real
Awesome and creepy concept. Druids taken to the next level.
Future rodeo rider.
The Moison race generate an unusual radiation from their skin. Specially made swaddling is worn to protect the mount, which is often in far more danger than the rider during the rodeo should any of these protective layers come loose. The most successful Moison rider, Z'eekjrd Tekx, doesn't take kindly to his human-given nickname: "Disco Smurf".
Really awesome rodeo rider. Keep up the neat workness. Your colours are vibrant and fun.
