    Cool stuff covering a great amount of different styles, think the last piece could have been made a little moodier by using more lightsources within the scene itself, less light overall and more of a dropoff from the candles. Hope to see some studies or similar stuff too in the future. Cool work!

    Nice to see some unforgiving mediums here, useful info for watercolor https://keenewilson.com/page/12220/focus-on-watercolor
    Edit: I think you should be bit more bolder with watercolor as darks seems lose its freshness, so dont put color if you are not planning to use it as glaze since you have 3 or 4 layers limit, I know its sometimes hard to know when to walk away from painting

    Yep, I saw that festering tangent too. It's a weakness of mine.

    Great stuff here, Mike! I specially like the RPG ones. I'm a big DnD nerd. I use to browse through all those books, looking at the amazing drawings by Tony DiTerlizzi. It was so fun. I specially like to see how different artist understand and renders all those weir creatures.

    Keep'em coming!

    Found myself in here after you replied to someone in the critique area. Lots of great stuff in your sketchbook man. Not sure why I haven't checked it out before. Tons of imagination in your drawings. Looking forward to seeing more!

    It feels bit flat, look bit of how deltoid attach to trapezius, bit redesign it bit like how it attach to neck, think more of overlaps but otherwise you got cool things going on here
