    These digis keep getting better and better Harris! I really like your sequential work, they all have good pacing and interesting angles.

    Wow. Those Minddew pieces are really creepy. I love your rendering style. And those details in the plant on your style experiment one are great.

    I'll be stopping by your sketchbook a lot!

    If you have the time, please stop by my sketchbook, Chock Full o'Nuts.
    I would appreciate any advice or critiques.

    I'm liking your work, you've got a great sense of colour and can really paint like a hot damn. That said, I think your linework can be a bit... tentative... and could use a little more flourish and personality.

    Harris-ejaz,
    Really cool work here. Great color sense. I'll def be checking in more.

    Hey, btw, I just spoke to Peter Chung (creator of Aeon Flux) the other day about doing some work with him sometime. Your Aeon Flux image reminded me of that. He and I worked at Colossal Pictures together when the animated show was produced for Liquid Television on MTV.

    It's a small world in this art universe, isn't it?

    What the, is this a sketchbook or a finished book. I don't see any sketches in here, they all look finished to me.

    [Thank you for stoppin by in da sketsb.]

    I like 'em. Some are very Aeon Flux-ish. [notetoself:Research that style also.Who started it and why it appeals in my heart.]

    -I love 'SEE' [EyeEyeSmile]
    -I like the comic pages too
    - ... [That doctor's a bastard?]
    -the creatures are cool too man.

    Keep inspiring bro. [I wouldn't mind knowing your inspirations and philosophies.]

    Hello Harris,

    Thanks for visiting my SB, and thanks for the critiques!

    You've got a good level of expertise with brushwork and rendering. Colors are strong, if a bit abstract in some cases.

    I have to say there's a general feeling of flatness and a dominance of mid-tones in your use of values. I don't fault it as much in the more concept-design type pieces, but it seems that you're not using enough strong form shadows, giving the impression of highly textured surfaces but not of volume.

    Also, the overuse of midtones detracts from the impact of your compositions, although you've counteracted this in several cases with an almost overpowering use of colorful secondary lighting.

    I recommend that you do some studies of more natural lighting situations. I really think that it would enhance your ability to describe forms and materials, as well as creating a more consistent separation between foreground and background. Look at Rembrandt, Vermeer, or...Craig Mullins.

    That Envoy of the Khemetar design is quite strong and in-depth but the use of color in the 'Sekhmet battle aspect' design is confusing...I can see that the orange/copper is some kind of coloration of the blue-gray (metallic?) base, but at first it seems like it could be a lighting effect (from the rising/setting sun perhaps).

    Those Menhir concept designs are probably the best thing you've shown in this SB, more like that (like 10-15 more) and I'm pretty sure you'll be able to attract some steady professional interest.

    In general, I'd like to see more stuff, and more recent stuff (of course).

    Keep it up!

    You're doing exactly what I was going to suggest you do while i was scrolling through your pictures.

    You're getting much more consistent, tightening everything up, and the lighting has gotten much more exciting.

    Definitely a promising sketchbook, keep it up!
