    lookin' good mike! love that gremlin fusilier sitting on top

    working on it section by section doesn't give a lot to crit, since most things get important as they relate to other sections... but, you need to watch how the sword overlaps the chest armor -- that skull belt buckle looks like it could be chewing on the top of the sword. you could throw a shadow layer over the lower torso and/or add some highlights to the top edge of the sword.

    That last piece is sweet!!! Keep in mind what bwkeough said. Really looking forward to seeing this one finished. I would like the upper background to be lighter though, a little too much darkness on the whole piece.

    Great fun to work from a silhouette, no?

    just stopping by to spread some love. Surprisingly This is my first visit, most excellent stuff thus far!

    Quick crit: On this last WIP, I would use a different tone of saturation for the face and skin in general. Everything being so closely related with the same tones makes the character appear flat. Keep at it!

    Lovely rose.

    Still wait'n' for the completion of the warrior boss, and especially want to see more of the mafioso portraits, as they are some fantastic character descriptions. Will be patient

    hey Mike, I'm digging the creepy priest in post 282, but I'm wondering what he might look like with a slightly more defined silhouette. right now his edges are all smooth and swooshy, maybe grab another layer and experiment with some angular fabric folds; also consider: is he wearing silk, wool or even canvas?

    Mike your back! Where have you been? I hope everything is good with you.
    That last piece is really nice! It reminds of a Korn (the band) cover, it has a Greg Capullo feel to it.

    What I really love about this last composition is that I really feel like I am there looking at this grave O' mechanical/skull stuff. The composition is extremely impressive.

    I've got no crits. My sense is these latest pieces are a flexing of mood and technique. Like the cold and desolate feel to the boy and mound of skulls. Very curious about the backstories and what direction your ideas will take.
