    Was just thinking that a new foster should be popping up Glad I was right.

    Here goes my feeble crit. I like the overall mood but there are a couple of things that distract me a little. I am spending too much time with the top left corner. i think part of it is that the light stream is so strongly photoshop-esque whereas you manage to get rid of the computer look on everything else you do. I am also caught with playing forground/background with the wire things. I almost tink if you made them a little more strongly silhoetted it would work better. the particulr one is the one above his head, i kinda get stuck at the light beam, wire "x." The onl other thing I might tweak is the pop a couple of lights on the basket things to the right. just a tiny bit of highlight on the lower parts.

    There is a really great mood established with the body language and lighting and the piece is really sweet overall. Nother sweet piece for the book. Any idea when it will be out?

    Awesome stuff man. My two crits:

    The two girls seem a bit soft. They look a bit unfinished.

    The brightly lit hanging lamp/basket is a bit distracting. Everything else falls into this really nice circular composition; it sort of sticks out.



    I like the rest though. Very cool! Defintely going to pick up a copy when it comes out.

    Great piece as usual.

    Only things I can spot are... the end of the gun.. kind of a tangent line there with the red head's leg.. and the red head's face seems less detailed (softer) than the other female's.

    I'm just being petty... nice artwork regardless =]
    There's no place like bed.

    Very beautiful as always!

    I agree with krayz, redheads face is sort of out of focus.
    but from me that would be the only crit.

    The circular comp is fancy-mancy indeed!

    I love the ambience in this one! Time to take a break now jon...you have been working like crazy that's for sure. I love all the negative space shapes created and all the scenery...everything....I love this one so much. So gritty...excellent man.

    Hi Jon,
    you are rather busy lately uh?

    the mood reminds me of Mignolas "Fafard and Greymouser"

    great job, jon! i really like the compostition! ithe circle leads the eye beautifuly, and the hoses/ropes across the top work wonderfully. you know, for some strange reason, and i cant put my finger on it, this kinda reminds me of kinuko craft's work in a way. maybe the delicateness of the rendering. i'm always interested to see how you progress in the overall visual look of your work, as its probably a precursor to certain trends in aesthetics that will saturate the market a year from now. it must be nice to be ahead of the curve! you are my hero, and congrats on finishing up the uninvited, i cant wait to see it.-c36
