[feedback wanted] fantasy concept art / costume design

I’ve recently been trying my hand at fantasy concept art, in collaboration with my fantasy tutor Alex Wynnter (I know next to nothing about the genre.) The concept for this work in progress was Alex’s, and I have worked off his initial sketch and built upon it to the best of my ability.

It’s become more of an exercise in costume design rather than fantasy art, and it must be noted that this is the first time I’ve tried this kind of thing… but having said that I’d love to get feedback on the current state of it. There are many issues that I know about, but I’m interested to see if other people can point them out.

[feedback wanted] Speedpainting

This is a work in progress. I’m testing out a new technique that I kind of stumbled across. It works quite well as far as speeding up the painting process, and even helps me with colour selection which is something I’m not so hot at.

This took me about 30 minutes, not counting subsequent touch ups. Probably a record for me.

So, I’m looking for feedback. What is good about it, and what sucks about it? What say you?

A year for self portraits, part four.

Update: It’s finished.

I started another self portrait today. This time it’s for a redbubble challenge. This particular challenge happens to have a good prize. A really good prize.

So for the last 6 hours or so I’ve been painting, and I’m really happy with the result so far. So much so that I cannot go to bed without sharing this with someone.

Entries for the happy challenge don’t open for another 6 days, so I’ve got a while to refine this.
