Hi, everybody. I'm a student looking to break into the industry. Have a look around and let me know what you think! Critiques are massively appreciated.

The next six pieces are all part of a single project designed to show a single aesthetic across an environment/situation.
Nice work so far. On the top one however, I wish you'd have payed more as much attention to the feet of your dragon as you did to its head. I feel like the feet are mearly sketched in compared to the majority of the rest of the dragon which feels finished. Over all though very interesting stuff.
Some of your weapons remind me a lot of something from Bioware. Not a bad thing.
Keep up the good work.
There's some thoughtful design , and nicely rendered too. Just keep on going and you will eventually find your way in.

@WyckdNick Erp, yup, can't argue that one. I don't think I ever really decided on what to do with the paws. Here's an updated version with a bit more polish. Thanks!
@village idiot thanks! I sure will.
Brilliant. You are a very skilled artist indeed.
Only thing I feel is proportion of the head on the 2nd piece is a bit larger than it should be.
Also the legs of that dragon (back legs specifically) seem very robotic but unnatural. Unless the back feet move with straight legs I couldn't fathom the idea of that creature moving its back legs. I would say maybe flex them? They just look way to straight than they need to be. It could have something to do with the hip.
Oh I love that dragon. O_O
I find all your concepts very solid and interesting. The only thing that you could work on in my opinion is to better deal with the details you put on your pieces. Sometimes the level of definition is not spread in an efficient manner. Other than that, everything seems pretty good to me. Plus you have very good ideas and imagination, but I'm not myself yet in the business so my opinion is not that worth.
I loved looking through all of these. That dragon in particular is awesome. Also really liked the little girl. Great concepts!
Thanks everybody for the kind words and critiques!
@Ceteri I played around a bit and I agree on both accounts. Here's a couple updates with a smaller head on the woman and a more flexible hip joint on the dragon. Thanks!
@smirt I think I see what you're saying about detail distribution. Probably too far gone on these pieces, but I'll look into it as go forward and refine my process. Thanks!
