UPDATE: Most of the images are back now, no more little x's. Only thing is that they are not exactly in chronological order, and you might see a drawing posted twice or something, still working on smoothing it all out. Hopefully you can enjoy it anyway, and give some meaningful feedback!
Hey guys, I'm new to this, but I've heard lots of good things about everyone here on CA, so Imma give it a run. I'd love to hear honest criticism (because getting compliments is never as interesting in hearing how you can improve). The last image here is the oldest, and probably the weakest, but some feedback is better than no feedback.

Nice work here McLean. I dig the colored paper, w/ highlights approach. That first beast was sweet. I was floored when I got to the Statue bust. A real leap for ya.
The only critical feedback I might offer (since you so politely requested them) is that I see a difference in detail and technique when you go from working from a model/reference to something out of your imagination (Climbing guy & Sword shoulderman). This is only natural, but I would love to see ya try to bring that solid shaping of form and light/shadow to your imaginated humans (the monsters seem good in this area).
For example, if you had the same face from the bearded bust guy on the character beneath him with the shoulder knives, the made up character would seem much more believable and fleshed out. Just a small nit-pick.
Great work, and I look forward to seeing what you do next!
