    Your first page enviro's look okay, but seem to lean heavily on being 'hazy' to cover up a lack of detail.

    Side note - if you want art critiques perhaps have this moved to that section and not 'finished art'.
    My commentary is a gift to you.

    Definitely, I think those were the first few environment paintings I did that I, myself, considered more concept art rather than illustrations. I've been trying to use less fog for more recent works and just haven't gone back to those as I've been trying to move onto newer works.

    But I do think it'll be beneficial to get feedback on it, maybe one day...

    First three ones remind me of Hans Giger's and Beksinski's art. Style is really cool and you can feel it, but I think it lacks details. Good job anyway! Keep doing it.

    Here's a new post, been busy with learning and doing more thumbnails for projects rather than finishing one! But found time to polish this thumbnail a bit more– Enjoy!

    I'm really liking the textures you are working up in these. Sometimes I copy a focal spot to filter-sharpen very subtly. Also, like with those flowers for example, I copy a chunk out then transform-selection and warp the chunk into some exaggerated perspective. It takes a few minutes of love, but can really make the details pop out of the screen.

    With this piece, I really tried to push myself with my everything I've learned. I painted this one without photo texture just because I didn't feel the need to....maybe in the future for the green area.

    went and made some minor changes to this piece. Pushed the background further back and tried to pop the foreground more with light.

    Concept: "The hive mind is located on a planet that is filled with rocky land formations and the holes dug by the group through the purple dyed minerals resemble that of an ant colony on planet Earth. Rather than hiding beneath the ground, these creatures would dominant those who dare to trespass into their territories. Though very aggressive, these creatures have created a landmark on one of many alien planets in the galaxy."

    Concept: "The minerals beneath the land would glow at night time, acting as a natural trap for the hive mind to lure their prey into the space. The largest rock would emit the brightest light to create the illusion of a leader's location."

    I like the atmosphere in that second to last one. Really gives you a great idea of a large space.
