Watch for Falling Ninjas - Threadless T-shirts, Nude No More

By the way cliff, I voted for ya so i hope it helped!


I decided to do this one digitally so I can have it in that portfolio. I talked with a rep for about 2 hours yesterday and she gave me some great feedback about my website.
I've decided to take my watercolor stuff to a "miscellaneous" page or something similar and stick with digital professionally at least.
I re- sketched the monkeys because I didn't think they had enough personality before... I'm still not settled on the binoculars one. What do you guys think?

Self Portrait WIP

Hmm I'm having trouble with the values feeling splotchy. Ideas anyone? Also I am not sure what to do with the hair, keep it cartoony or make it more representational, similar to my Monster Painting.

I decided I wanted to show this as if the soldier had just taken out a couple of bad guys. I tried to show it in the target hits behind him as well as the fbi portraits of the terrorists. still trying to work out the kinks, but I felt like I wanted to go with something a bit conceptual this time. I appreciate all the input I have received and continue to receive. crits always welcome

first post here

howdy everyone. this will be my first post here and I hope not the last. Anywho, I was just wondering if I could get some feedback with this guy. I really have no idea what I want to do with the bground as you can see. I would really appreciate crits and feedback please. thanks guys. by the way, there will be a border on this guy, so some of the sides will not show since it acts as a bleed.

Adom - Harbinger of the Stars

I am posting this to get compositional ideas. I will be revamping 'Adom' the character you see in front, giving him a more rendered look. I am hoping to send this, the character stats/story, and my application to Riot. Seeing as I created this character specifically because I wanted to pitch the idea to them and get my foot in the door. Kind of working on speculation. Adom is a starchild, literally because he was formed in the destruction of two stars that collided. He is supposed to look sinister/radioactive. Does that come across? I have played with both desaturated red and saturated, but Adom seemed to pop the most when it was a bit more saturated. Any ideas? I feel like the background becomes a little too focal at this point. Anyway I appreciate the feedback.

Some Revisions

I am still working on finding textures that fit the feeling, but here are some changes, let me know what you think.
