Aaron Wilkerson - Tier 2

Hi James. First was done for a contest on a theme Black Church. The 2nd was one that I had hopes for but abandoned. 3rd was for a client with a very specific brief.
If you would like to do a more in-depth crit on one, you can go for the 1st or 2nd pic, whichever you think you can fix more.

Bruno Ortan Tier 2

Hello James I'm rly sorry for posting this late. I didn't see the invitation and because I had a lot of work for school I couldn't post anything. Here are two of the paintings I did for class. I couldn't finish them as I wanted but I'm looking forward to your critique. The maze one is a photobash and the other is done just using brushes. Thanks

Ananda C. Arán - tier 1

Hi James, sorry I'm late, here are two nearly finished images. They're very much in my comfort zone of environments with architecture and other than a bit more detail I don't know how to keep improving.

Dennis Houwers-Tier 3

Hello James. I got inspired after playing AC-Syndicate and decided to make a fan-art piece. Any tips on how to create more realistic / dramatic lighting and shadows would help a lot as well as tips on how to further render the piece to it's final stage. Thanks, and looking forward to the paint-overs!

Jasza Dobrzanski - Tier 2

Hey James,
I'm sorry for being late with this, that food truck piece gave me a lot of trouble, so I kept reworking it and changing things. I'm looking forward to your critique.

Andreas Kjær-Jensen - Tier 1

Hey James, I hope I'm not too late, I had somehow made myself believe that I had more time to turn in my pieces.

An alien spaceship design (mix of 3D and 2D)

And a robot

I am primarily looking for feedback on design and presentation.

Another in my egyptian series; the temple of Hathor. This one is going to be pure background to a scene with nefertiti talking to a dung beetle.

Elodie Jean Tier 2

Sorry I am late...

Mainly, I would like some advice about texturing and lighting for the first one.
The second piece is an old work, I tried something different and I would like continue in this way but I am stuck.

I am very happy with your feedback, thanks a lot!

Hey James. I'm trying to build a portfolio with a couple of strong pieces that could help me break into the industry. Area of focus: concept art and illustration. Any help is appreciated :)

Eric Martin - Tier 3

Hey James, i was hoping you could give me any pointers on design on this character. I wanted to make a military space suit design to be resistant to shrapnel and has rig on the back that has propulsion arms on the back for maneuvering. I wanted to make it intimidating and spidery. Thanks again.

Robert Ryminiecki- Tier 4

Hi James,

Here is my piece for this month. I want to improve my environmental skills and I know that  you are one of the best who can help me! Really looking forward to it.


Juan Pablo Roldan - Tier 3

Hello James,

So glad to receive your feedback! :)

This month I want to get your opinion on this particular image,  what happens to me in this picture is the same that I see on many of my works, I feel it is a little boring, I'm not sure by the lighting and many other aspects, I would love to know how to improve my work with color and especially the lighting. Thank you very much for this opportunity!  I'm happy! :)

Note: Sorry for my english! :p
