siiiick. the conehead chap reminds me of Lucifer from battleStar Galactica. He used to terrify me as a kid with his pure robot malice.
The boar image is seriously slick. the rusty cor-ten armoud on its snout, and the shiny grey bits where the rust/paint has rubbed off are so choice..

A lot of lovely sketches in here.
Just on the last one:
Make a soft edged selection around the guys head and upper body and push the saturation up and see what happens. I think it will pull the eye way stronger to him.
Nothing else to crit. Keep posting.
Fffffff-- Yesssss, the boar rider is BAD. ASS. And I love it when someone makes red and green work so well. The new piece is lovely, althought it feels there could be more focus on the man in the middle? That he stands in front of a background with similar color and that he's surrounded by big, lighter elements that don't bring him out make him look a little lost in the composition. Which is a shame because the way you executed the piece (or just your painting skill in general) is A++. Maybe just a rim light to detach him from the background? I know you're not done with it, just thought I'd drop in my two cents.
Man, if I had half your skill and imagination I think I'd be happy. Love your work man, I think I'll just be lurking in your sketchbook forever.
SKETCHBOOK! IT'S FULL OF HOT RUSSIAN GIRLS WHO WANT TO MEET YOU AND WEIGHT LOSS/TEETH WHITENING SECRETS DISCOVERED BY A NEBRASKA MOM WITH NO ARMS!
god damn dude the colors in the last two are awesome !!!! and the renderings look sick to keep it up man bad ass stuff cant wait to see more
Its interesting how you kind of sneak in your pieces - many uses a very abrasive methods on CA - while some do the midtones to either extreme ~
not certain if I like the process for myself, but the results once you are done works well and I guess it gives your pieces the opressive dark you want (in a good way).
Like the latest
character and the idea of the background - but would wish for some cleaning and more depth I think
perhaps a bit like
and while I know you like black metal and the like - somehow your images remind me more of Pentagram and Ghost as you got the dark and the peaceful (most of the time).
& I just attacked with broad strokes and gradients - details were slain as I just wanted to fiddle with the mood.
EDIT: Actually you seem to just flesh stuff out below the midtones - still it feels very cautious even if works well - it might be more a lack of large highlights - also some areas worked better in your version depth wise, like the entry way and especially the rocks connecting to the arch. So not certain if I helped or mostly just lay to ruin as I kind of destroyed any details/shapes around the soldiers etc ~ but I hope the point got across anyway
Also love the metal on the boar armour.

I agree with Dan on this, and it seems to me that often you tend to ignore strong light sources, when for example a stronger upper and under light sources would made the main character to pop out more. Dan elaborated enough on the mid tones issue so i don't have any more crits.
Anyways, you're way better than me (for now ) so i'll shut up and go back to my tablet...
keep up the great job you do and keep posting!
Beautiful color palette and characters! loving where your works going : )
