    Your industrial designs and monster concepts are like eyecandy to me.
    These sketches are WONDERFUL and I hope you keep it. I would love to see more from you.

    Awesome SB, dude.
    Really love the creature designs.

    A critique on the oil painting, though. There's that bright glow, but it doesn't have much impact on the creature, in terms of lighting.

    Hey Alex,

    Nice updates; lots of interesting creature designs. Something I would really work on is economy of line; lately I've been inspired by Michael Hussar, Sargent, Velazquez, Sorolla, I think their work convincingly demonstrates that the more you can suggest with less work, the better. Not only does it save time, but it keeps you on your toes so you are always aware of the big picture. For digital painting, Craig Mullins and Kekai Kotaki (prostrate_sunrise) are excellent at suggesting, but not laboring over, invented shapes. It gives a sense that you painted or drew the fantasy concepts from life, which looks incredible when it is pulled off.

    ~ Stephen

    it's really cool to see the improvement in your lines here, and the figure studies are fantastic! Keep those up. I also like your creature designs; the style is pretty awesome.

    Keep an eye on your proportions however; I see sometimes the arms tend to be short with your imagined work. ;]
