tell me what you think.
I think that first is paint ower some screen shoot, wich left angle too wide.
I don't see anything to suggest "lions," whatsoever. You really should try to have the title somehow visually agree with the work.
The second piece is just silly and confusing, from the goofy looking angle of the legs to the poor foreshortening/angle of the giant whats-it on/in front of the left arm.
Your usage of colors is good, if a bit too bright. You need to work now more on the subtleties of shading and value to help add some depth to your work. The interior wall surrounding the opening in the first one is far too bright for such a strong light source, and this shows the flaws in your brick and mortar work, distracting the eye from it's main focus, which should be the blue guy, whose head and face need better definition and detail.
Also, is it just me, or does he have two right hands? The way he's holding that club looks REAL weird...
It's a good start, though, and looks to be an interesting concept.

I chose the name because I'm the new guy in this concept art club. When you're fresh meat you can usually get devoured by the wild animals. Judging from the critiques of my last two post I CHOSE CORRECTLY. HOWEVER, THE NAME IS NOT IMPORTANT IT'S THE WORK. I ONLY ASK FOR CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM. I'M CURRENTLY ATTENDING THE ACADEMY OF ART UNIVERSITY I GOT AN 'A' FOR THE BEAST PIECE.
Interesting... did you post looking for validation, or did the grade seem off to you?Originally Posted by Madman
I don't know what the rest of your work is like, or that of the other people in your class, but I can tell you you wouldn't get anywhere near an A for that in any class of mine, and I'm a generous grader. I think the most disturbing thing is that the only element with any sense of form or dimension is his enormous, swinging package.

That was quoteworthy...the only element with any sense of form or dimension is his enormous, swinging package.
Here is a color theory tutorial by one of our own masters here at CA.Org. Your ability to paint surely beats mine, but I agree that you need to work on your anatomy and colors. And don't worry about winning art contests or any of that stuff. Here, your work speaks for you--not your awards or what your friend or relatives said about your work.
EDIT : I agree that, when you're painting casually, the name shouldn't really matter.
