thank you for stopping by our little newbtown alex ;)

Hmm your work strikes me as quite great as I browse through it, so I'm going to take a fine toothed comb to see if there's anything you could improve...

Hmm, the front horse in this hind legs don't feel quite anatomically correct, like he's missing a big chunk of thigh, and the horse in the furthest back seems like his head is too big

In this one, the chapels on the left most side seem sloppy and not grounded, not the main ones, but the one that seems like a door or a gatehouse as some of the blocks these shapes are built on seem kind of skewed. the gathouse I'm referring to is kind of like slurring out of the chapel it's built into. Also the ground the figure is standing on, the way it's painted makes it seems like he's floating, since the value rises up near the first stair. Just make sure to check those shapes, I know in more painted looking work they're not perfect, but if you're looking to "improve" it, we can always make things in digital tighter.

Those are your more finished pieces, not sure if I should crit the faster ones, but it would mainly just be anatomy and stuff, so keep postin!

Thanks guys! Fedodika, thanks for taking the time to comment, you're right about parts being sloppy or perspective being a bit off. I always try to only emphasize the most important details that add to the overall picture and strip away the unnecessary details, kind of like when you paint alla prima. I want it to look correct with little detail, but at the same time not look sloppy. I have to work more on the drawing part I'm sure.

Sorry for not updating more often and with more stuff, I'm in the middle of moving which is taking longer than I suspected, and I have to dedicate the work time I have to work-work.

I did manage to finish this personal thing tough.

You did nice progress over last few years, I can see the most improvement when it comes to colors and shapes. I hope to see more stuff when you finish your relocating ;)
