Concept- I love the design of each character. They each give a broad but individual personality. The use of each elemental theme in the designs are creatively and cleverly implemented. The line work goes a long way in giving the impression of texture, especially when comparing the stone figure to the plant and smoke characters. Color Choice- The color choices here are beautiful. While not the most complex color scheme, the colors themselves are very well placed and go a long way in delivering a strong feel of what each character is about. The subtle texture on top of the cell shading is a great choice and really helps sell these as a polished product. Presentation- The texture and halftone background really helps pop the characters forward while making the over all piece interesting. The black bars on top and bottom give it a cinematic feel while the over-lap of the logo and smoke-like character frees it of what could have been a confined feeling. Overall- This piece is excited, well detailed and quite polished. Obvious skill was involved and while it may not be something seen a fine arts gallery, it serves it purpose brilliantly.
That's my first crit by the way. Sorry for the slight grammatical mistakes I'm catching just now. Hopefully I don't sound like too much of a wanker in it. I figure if I'm paying for a premium account, I might as well use it and give praise where praise is due, ya know?
Man! Your work is always so beautiful and polished and aaaaaaargh! Everything looks awesomely original, it's always in these dynamic, never boring poses. The coloring is just as top notch. You're one of those artists I aspire to be at the level of in the future. Love your stuff!
