Hey amigo, glad to see another post from ya! Glad to see youve been busy since your last post. Watercolors are looking great ( i really need to venture into those myself ) and your portrait work is still some of my favorite stuff of yours. But i'm most impressed with your progress on your cartoony subjects! Those pencil and blueline headshots of the male character are top notch!
As for a minor crit, perhaps watch your jawlines on your more stylized works, they can be a bit harsh on your female characters especially, perhaps show a little bit of neck between the jaw and ear instead of having it connected with a full line. Hope thats somewhat helpful :B
Keep it up dude, you're doing great!

hey mate, I'm glad to see that you're back.
All your new sketches look great but this one especially cought my eye, I really enjoyed the style.
Hope you're doing swell, this is some topnotch quality stuff you're pulling out of the bag! It's great to see your stuff again, it always wants to makes me want to reach for my pencil. The tree and book piece I especially love!
I'll be keeping a beady eye once again and giving you some crits along your journey!
What an overwhelming lesson to all artists! Be not afraid of absurdity; do not shrink from the fantastic. Within a dilemma, choose the most unheard-of, the most dangerous, solution. Be brave, be brave! - Isak Dinesen
Decrepid character in the last post is mean as bro How've things been going for you?
The beard on the last character is great, if you can get a copy of Fantasy Cartooning by Ben Caldwell, he handles drapery and hair really really well and I think your rendition of it is similar enough to really benefit from looking at his work.
Thank you all
Mat Kaminski- Thanks dude! Cheers for the follow too

Water colour owl and tiger:
And another digi, quite like the colours in this one
Thanks for looking guys!
WUT?! Those watercolors are insane! They look like digital watercolor, but they are obviously traditional. Matt, your art is coming along beautifully!
The bottom one, I actually want to use as a background when you get done The vivid red thrown on that background really makes the girl POP! Sheesh Matt, I think this is the time for you, you're really shining.
Plus I dig your style
Keep on rockin' it hard!
brilliant stuff!! those last watercolors are great and i love the pencils from the previous page, keep posting!!

Hey, mate. Just caught up with your updates, no complaints from me. Some great stuff as usual. The wee owl is adorable. You're bloody good with animals, you know and I'm really liking the one girl at the bridge too, reminds me of a glen not at all far from my home. Remember doing similar things as a kid myself all the time.
Oh! And gratz on getting to your 76th page, that's crazy but I'm definitely going to catch up with you too. Page number atleast, not skill. Aha.
Mat Kaminski- Again mate, really appreciate the kind words Glad you think so man, thanks for the support
