The tree in the last piece is wonderfully magnificent. Love the Demon Hunter lyrics in it, too. I like the tiny bits of color here and there, like on the eyes and shoulder, and the red laser is nice and crisp. I think my favorite part is the tiny little bit of blue in the center of the figure's torso. His shadow could have been worked out a bit more, since it feels a bit weak compared to the tree/rocks/weeds in the background. But overall, a very well done piece. Feels very tranquil and foreboding. 

 

The tank drawing is cool, as always. Interesting perspective and line work. Definitely seems like you've developed and improved as compared to the previous realistic tank renderings. Which is great.

 

The random Kermit was unexpected but amusing. And a barbed wire chair sounds super uncomfortable, flames notwithstanding.

Really love the drawing. Great lighting, atmosphere, and depth, and plenty of well-wrought detail in the grass, stone walls, wood gate, and armor. The little goblins seem a bit confusing scale-wise, for me. Like, the one in the back looks about a full brick or so taller than the foremost one. The way the gate protrudes from the wall is wonderful, and I really dig how illustrative it all is. Fantastic piece, overall. 

 

The painting is also cool. Love how you handled the color, particularly the monochrome portion. 

 

And the Dirty Harry piece is neat. My favorite thing is the angled composition - how it guides your eye down the barrel of the gun. Very simple, but very aggressive and incredibly appropriate given the inspiration. I appreciate that you cut the image off before the end of the barrel is reached, since it helps heighten the sense of lingering apprehension.

I'm really liking Anvil, here. His armor looks very dense and heavy (seems reminiscent of your Alpha Class Hari character). I can imagine a thunderous hammer-striking-an-anvil sound with his every step. Glowing runes on his armor are cool, too. His figure seems more life-like than stylized, which I think shows your progression nicely. Awesome job on this one!

 

I don't know, Tragedy, to me, is still feeling weaker than the others. I think I'm having trouble with it because I feel it might be a bit too overwrought compared to the others, what with the slashed wrists, noose, and bullet-through-the-head-halo kinda over-saturating a suicide aesthetic, whereas the others are a bit more reserved and abstract in their visuals. Not that I think it's a bad interpretation of tragedy, mind you, because it certainly contains tragic motifs. The repose is a step in the right direction, though. Gives it a bit of a Greek tragedy feel.

 

Lust is interesting. As with Anvil, I think it shows an improvement of your figure drawing skills, as the torso is well rendered. Good attention to where her/its ribs would be. The hooks are an interesting take on lust, especially when considering the seductive pose which further enforces a sense of the primal draw of lust. 

 

Fury does have a cool design. Nice shading on the armor, and I love the flaming sword halo. I think his helmet horns are a bit impractically large, but as an abstract concept come to life as a humanoid being, I guess he gets a pass on that. His left arm, though, is incredibly noticeably small, which is the only weak part of his overall figure.

 

The Deathwish cover is nice, as well, my only suggestion being to work on the shading a bit more. It's much stronger on the turret than anywhere else. The guy sitting on the top is my favorite, since his pose and general rendering I think are stronger than the other two.

Nice action in the first drawing. Those horses came out very well, and the scene's depth was handled nicely. Love the tiny little head of the fifth soldier poking out there. Little details like that are my favorite because they're so small and easily overlooked, but they add so much more than you'd think.

 

Homunculi also turned out nice. Really makes me want to re-watch Fullmetal Alchemist now.

 

And no, I definitely was not expecting the Imperial Inquisition (not sure why, but I was expecting something DiCaprio related?). I'm not familiar with Errant, obviously, but I'm aware of it's significance 'round these parts and I have to say my mind immediately went to a Monty Python/Star Wars dealio. Until I read the description. I do, however, really want to know what the text on the scroll says but the darn picture is too small. I know those are actual words and not chicken-scratch-filler, so this is frustrating.

 

Anyways, you have a nice grasp of scene dynamics and composition so I'd be interested to see something larger in scale from you. Not necessarily resolution-wise, just something with a large landscape and lots of characters, action, and depth.

I'm curious if there will only be one saved file that gets overwritten, or if a new file is saved whenever you sleep. I still quicksave what feels like every two minutes and hard save every ten it seems. Despite never having had those sorts of issues, I'm aware of their existence and it definitely feels more secure having those backups.
