Some really impressive blending in here, wow, all your colours and values look so gorgeous and silky. What's your process like?
The only criticism I can offer right now is your faces are a little weak, I can sense a certain lack of confidence in them and it's clear you're not as comfortable with the forms of the face as you are elsewhere. With that said, everything else really does look beautiful, I think some portrait studies would go a long way for you. Keep it up :)

Beautiful. My favorites are the first three because they remind me so much of one of my heroes' work. I'm curious. Were some of these painted in SAI?

My suggestion for the latest two pieces would be to balance between bright and subdued colors. While they're really nice, some of the visual information gets lost because the bright colors are so overpowering is some areas. If you want some brighter colors in the background, try and pick some colors that are relatively bright to a subdued color palette.

Good luck and hope this helps!

Thanks Orochi for your feedback! Sorry it takes me an eternity to get back to people because I'm a lazy asshat :c And everything is painted in photoshop, I don't have anything else/

Trying to be less surreal and more literal, avoiding my usual comfort zone and getting into the grounded in reality stuff.

Thanks! Yeah I was shifting my art direction slightly on that last one for nefarious reasons. And yeah I'll be uploading everything substantial when I'm done with it everywhere :3

I like your style and some of abstract forms.. I think you could do more experiment with colours of bodies..

Truly awesome stuff! I just love how imaginative you are, makes me feel ashamed to go back to the "default" fantasy ideas (dragons, warriors, elf, etc). And that's a good thing! :)
If I can critique your artwork at all, the only thing that bothers me a bit is that there isn't usually a focal point to your illustrations, so try saving most contrast, hues and detail to what you want the focus to be. Even simple things like losing edges and saturation a little on things you don't want people to focus on go a really long way.
Lastly, I just want to reiterate how I love your style and imagination. Thanks for reminding me that we're kinda omnipotent on our paintings, meaning we can do whatever we want. :)

Keep up the awesome!
