Here's a self portrait:
Hey, these are awesome! Your faces have great expression, and everything has a mood.
Only critique is working on the fiery effects. Post#62 for instance, looks interesting; but I don't know what the colors are. I would define these effects more.
And Post#67, fire comes in all shapes and intensity. The size of that roaring blaze doesn't quite match the intensity of light it deserves. Also, keep in mind the fire's source, or it's fuel (what its burning). Fire rises straight up from it's source, and doesn't crest often at the bottom. Just something to think about in your next drawing.
All in all, the improvements are showing. Keep it up!! ^^
Here are two more burnt offering pics to go with the earlier one I posted:

Thanks a lot guys, I really appreciate your comments! I hope your comment about my style is true, Jamie... sometimes it feels like my style is taking soooooooo long to emerge. :/ Scribble King, I think everyone feels that way... I see kids younger than me who are already working professionally and I freak out since I'm not even close to that level yet... but then I see people who don't get into art until after middle age and put out amazing work. In the end I think it's best not to think of art as a race... it's just your personal journey, and the places are more important than the dates.

Have to say, the cow offering cracked me up. A lot of the concepts you have make me grin, love it.
On the Dec 9th sketch though, it might just be me personally but there's so many repeated lines that I think it overwhelms my eye. Made it difficult to get a deeper read on it.
Can definitely see the difference from the start of your thread though, very nifty, keep it up! =)
