I've recently completed a concept art portfolio geared towards video games and/or entertainment design. Here are a few samples from my portfolio website. I am currently looking for work in this field. Any critiques or comments are welcome and appreciated, thanks for taking the time to look!

woah... no comment man all of your work is really beast
You got some nice concepts there man!
I really like the scorpion like creature.
The top pieces are a bit busy imho, there is just a bit too much stuff going on.
For the rest it's just awesome stoff man!
Edit: sory for being a pain in the ass, but I just found another little thingy.
The perspective of the rear of the vehicle seems to be a bit off. Now it looks like it is twisted slightly.
Sorry for my crappy English
Looking for tips and tricks
Thanks for the kind words A.Gregoire and M-Studios! I guess I may have been overzealous in the details a little bit for the enviros, I'll watch that from now on. As for the perspective of the vehicle, I think i see what you mean. Is it the large backtire? that's the part that's looking kinda funky to me now, I'll make the necessary adjustments. no need to apologize at all, its good to get the feedback!
Wow, some really nice concepts you've got there! Like M-studios said, the enviros are a little busy and perhaps the detail in the back ground is a little over-sharpened. I'd also like to suggest that the anatomy of your last two characters are a little off in the chest region. They're a little flat.
All in all though, really nice renderings!
Thanks for the comments Belindi! In an effort to tone down the busyness of the first two enviros, I lessened the sharpened effect and tried to add a little more fog like atmosphere to try and kill some of the detail. The results are posted above and they do work better now. Good call on the chests too, they were quite sunk in! I hope the perspective on the vehicle works better now too
Nice enviros.. I have been attempting to decipher how to do those for sometime. Grr.. another one to review.
Hey Dude, great stuff Man. I especially like the female cyborg! Damn but that is a tasty piece of work. For outlandish vehicles etc check out Kow Yokoyama of Ma.K fame. You may find some cool ideas. In fact check out this forum : http://www.maschinenkrueger.com/forum/index.php you will need to sign up, to have a serious look at the good stuff, but that is not a big deal.
I like your ideas for The Dark Future environments and the coloring gives out a nice ambience which makes me want to try this game out. If I had a game company I'd take you in ^^
Thanks for the comments Heavens, that's encouraging to hear
Here's my latest, I call it Little Big Red Riding Hoods. No concept really here, more just visualizing a scene. I had an idea in my head that Little Red Riding Hood had an older sister, Big Red, who fortuitously for Little Red, happens to pack guns. And knows how to use them. Any critiques are appreciated, thanks for taking the time to look.

Great scene, it made me laugh this version would be much cooler to tell as a fairytale!
There could be a few changes though, the main thing is composition, the painting seems to be divided in 3 parts, for each character 1 part with very little overlap. This way it doesn't really read as one, it just seems to be 3 seperated parts wich are put together in 1 painting. Try to change the point of view or something to let them overlap a lot more, and it will be much better imho.
The coloring etc. is great! Keep up the good work!

great work. Love the angles.
Note to self - Do not try to invade your house.
Art so far SketchBook
Hahaha Loved the idea it's a really cool painting
Thanks Heavens, I thought it would be fun idea too
Just did some character costumes as an exercise since I don't feel particularly strong in it. Also redid my enviro from before since there were issues with the perspective angles. Any feedback is appreciated, thanks for looking.
Damn dude how much time u got these works are awesome love the enviroment concepts that uve come up with
Love all your work mate. I would agree however that some of your environment works are too busy. You could try having a focus point, and then doing less detail on other parts of the environment.
Just a thought
Practice, practice and MORE practice..
hi jack, i like your character concepts, but i think you have a little problem with the eyes... i realy like the girl-robot concept above the scorpion creature and the war-car ... and about that war-car, it's a nice design but the 2 wheels in front, they don't seem to touch the ground...
good work man, keep it up
Templar 101--- A very good point , I've been told that my environments are a little too busy and that I need to let the viewer have "room to breathe". I keep falling into the trap though, I think I have tunnel vision in that regards. I'll have to be more wary of it.
look@mine---- good observation, there was something bothering me about the latest characters, I'll try to make the adjustments to their eyes. I didn't notice that about the vehicle, but now that you pointed it out, I'll try to see if i can ground it more.
Thank you both for the feedback!
spectacular work! all I can say about it is a few pieces are a bit hard to read because the contrast between middleground and background isn't completely defined
jbrown67--- Good eye, that's something I have a struggle with! The foreground, mid-ground separation I find easier but for some reason I struggle with the background. Is it too much atmosphere, too little? Now i know its too little, I'll try to knock it back more to separate the midground...
vanndi---thanks vanndi, wish you all the success as well!
thanks both for the feedback!
I really like most of your work and I may not have the appropriate skill level to really give any constructive criticism, however your enviroments seem to be having a lot of quick brush strokes that really take away from that 'polished' look, a lot of things have wobbly lines. Now you could say that that is part of the magic of painting and ofcourse I don't exactly know if these pieces are sketches or really finished, however I believe that most of these would look spectacular if you would strive for perfection.
Again, that is just my perspective on this and I really do have a lot of admiration for your level of skill.
So, great job!
