That's really cool stuff you have.  Are you really an illustrator?  You have a really interesting, expressive style that really can't help but capture the eye.   I really enjoyed the self portraits - on the other piece, the roughness of the landscape proved to be a little distractive. 
I love the way you pay attention to lighting!

Thank you. Yes, I am indeed an illustrator. Thank you again. I like my self portraits too, and I think it my have been better too add something more than just "blue" as an environment. Again, thank you.

Just because I'm mighty curious, could you post some kind of reference to your self portrait?

Also, I really like the initial sketch for your favorite piece.  It seems really alive and kind of striking.

Nice bold coloring. It's awefully blocky, though, they look more like speedpaintings - but I suppose that suits your illustrative style.

I really do like speedpainting....

Here's a comic I did as my final for illustration class. I don't like the final panel very much though... Oh! Before anyone asks, I'm an atheist.

I like the final panel OK!  What do you think is wrong with it?  I really like the emergence of what I assume to be some sort of crusader.
I like (again) the light on her hooves and horns.  That's a seriously great expression of the light on the horns and hooves and the cross while still retaining that really visceral raw quality that runs throughout your works.

I don't like that it seems kindof flat compared to the other panels...

That's because it doesn't have any speculars or dark shadows, whereas the others do. There's less range of values in the last one.

The whole theme of the comic is awesome, though.
