Good flow in the gesture lines for all of the poses. I like that you're approaching the body from different angles to make sure you are...

I'd love to hear any thoughts you might have on this.
Balrog VS Patronus
I did this piece for an art challenge that required a mashup of the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings universes. I'm really happy with the outcome, being a huge fan of both universes!

Uh, I'm a giant Harry Potter fan! I knew this was Hogsmeade before I even scrolled down to see the title. What an awesome piece! And yes, I'm super bias on this one. However, I do think you did a fantastic job with the feeling of light and distance. You also delivered a wonderful balance in the temperature of your color palatte. I have always been a fan of orange and blue together in a piece. Which one of the Harry Potter books is your favorite? I think mine is Half Blood Prince, but it's so hard to commit, lol! Great work!
Hunted
Here's some concept art for a novel I'm about to start working on.

This piece is awesome! I love the concept. and how it has a bit of an old school vibe for the era (maybe like 1940s). The strokes are loose and pleasant; the colors are warm, which successfully captures the feeling you mentioned you wanted to achieve with the piece. I honestly don't know what I would say to improve this. Perhaps showing just a little bit more of Earth down below to really hit home that she is so high up in the air. Maybe just a gleam of the sunlight reflecting off the river would be enough to give it the contrast needed to bring it into the piece just that little bit more. Great work here! Keep it up!
Self-educating has led me to find new inspiration as an artist. For many years, I let my art get stagnant and I felt as if I was stuck in a rut. I'm sure many others know exactly what I'm talking about. It feels really good to be inspired again. I've been watching artists like Aaron Blaise and Trent Kaniuga, and they have sparked a lot of new life into my desire to produce art. It's awesome!
