I hope that helps a little. I need to work on my GFX as well, so I'm not really sure if I'm one to give a critique at the moment. But anyway, I like your work. Keep up the great work. :>
So glad you liked it! :D
And yeah, I messed up the lighting quite a bit in that bayo LP. I'll probably modify it and post it later here. Orr..maybe make a new one. In either case, I'll be glad if you offer your feedback again, mate! :D And thanks again!

I really really adore that last banner - the positioning and sharpening is pretty spot on and extremely nice on my eyes~! I'm also a huge fan of the typography style here, that "grainy" look on it complements the entire image very well.

All-in-all I think you're quite excellent at what you do; your typography is, to me, one of your strongest points. n_n I'd absolutely adore to see more icons though, as it seems your thread is relatively banner/larger image-based.
Haha, Gav and Massimo always told me typography was very weak. lol I never got complimented for my typography either. You're probably the first, haha! Anyway, thank you SO much! <3; It means a lot. And yeah, I'll try to post as many icons as possible. I'm not good at those but..ehh. I'll give 'em a try. ;P

I agree with the others, there's little to be improved except on the last banner I think that his cloak could be a bit more darker red to show the brooding implications of his dire situation.
Well, I felt making it a little more snappy might work in the favour of the tag. The red coat, I mean. But yeah, cool. I'll edit it up and see how the result turns out [that is, if I still have the .psd. Might've deleted it :(]. Thank you, by the way! :)

That's your one big flaw, you're following still. Try some new things, be adventurous. Study some new styles, it will help you as an artist. I love that first LP also, using multiple stocks in a large piece is a very good thing to practice.
I swear Gav, this is the first time you haven't ripped my works apart (in a good way, of course. So that I can improve!). As soon as I saw your reply, I was on cloud nine, or something like that. Anyway, yeah, I need to build my own identity. I know. Moo has been telling me that for quite a while but I can't seem to break myself away from this current style. I've told Moo countless times that I'll experiment but, in the end, I end up making stuff that belongs to this very style. I can't seem to make anything innovative.

But yeah, I'll still try. No promises, though!

Anyway, these thingies here were WIPs when I abandoned 'em. I'll probably make something totally different. I abandoned 'em because I realized while working on 'em that I was merely trying stuff out which I'm already confident about/familiar stuff. I wanna experiment now. So yeah.
