And here's the time-laps video, getting this to ti final appropriate size, resolution aspect ration, and compression was a nightmare. It took me an entire night and couple of hours this morning and I still managed to to mess the compression, overall time and speed(it's a bit faster than I would liked it to be), the aspect ratio and so on. So if someone has more experience with this and has a nice, quick and easy pipeline let me know . Finally I hope you like it an it'll be useful to some of you.
Unfortunately the pain doesn't end here, for some weird reason the video cant be embedded in the forum post, the embed code just appears as well code(text).
ps.fixed it many thanks to DanielC !

Woo! Scary snail tractor video!
I'm still not sure why it reminds me of a snail, but it does. I love the design and the process. Especially seeing how you start from a messy free-form doodle and end up with something fairly acurate perspective-wise. You rock!
Wow, great stuff!
I really like your style, the black and white figures and the pencil poses are great!
Some sewesome work here! Love the pencil sketches, and all your anatomy work, theyre amazing!
Love the digital stuff, and if you inspire mr Delicious, you must be good!
Cheers and keep up the awesome work please!
awesome pencil drawings, you are improving so much since page 1 keep it up it's great stuff!
Love those pencils!!!!
More more more!

Concept Artist & Illustrator
Hello, finally got some time on my hands and hit the right mood to collect some sketches and update the dusty ol' sketchbook.
Thanks all for the reply and positive comments, I already know you're bunch of really nice ppl, so I won't mind some serious critics, suggestions and ideas on how can I improve, i see tons of stuff I'm doing wrong or not exactly right and I bet theres even more I don't see. But enough of that here are the pictures. These are a bit old, some of theme even older than and year, but decided to share them with you anyway. Mostly thumbnails and preparation sketches for for illustrations I did for some D&D books.
You can see some of them brought to finals here in the finished section, as well as more details:

great concepts! spit em out
hey mang, great work. I think not unlike many fresh artists here... youre a bit too self critical. Youve got some mighty powerful and well executed pieces to your name that can stand along with the best of them on the boards.... so kick back for a sec and soak that in. I think we all can do the "constantly striving to improve" math. Were all there with you. (or trying to catch up...)
This SB is f-in metal As in f-in rocks As in rocks my socks off .

Will appreciate critique anywhere, anytime .
Thanks for the comments people!
OmertA - Thanks! "What canvas size do you usually work in?" Now that' s a though question, my canvas sizes are all over the place, but in general not big enough. If I'm doing something for print I either do in the same resolution it'll be printed in or up to double the final resolution. For the images I do for fun I generally gravitate around 1600x1200 which is the native resolution of my main monitor, but in general I try to stay around or above 1920x1080 (HD 1080). I general I try to paint in format which is around two times the format the image is intended to be viewed in. Hope this gives you a hint.
smokenmirrors - Thanks a lot for the encouragement and motivation man. That comment was right on the spot. Yes, realize I'm a bit to self critical(and it's not only self, I'm kind of critical in general), so much that I'm a bit afraid what will happen if I throw my critics at other people. Maybe that's why I haven't commented a lot around here, maybe I should try and see what happens.
Some exploratory sketches for a near future large railway station. Part of the test I did when applying for may current job at Splash Damage. There's a link to the finished concept at the bottom of the post.
Some thumbnail proposals for Star Wars Galaxies TCG illustrations
Unfortunately they chose the worst option from the 6 . This is how I found in practice that too many options is not a good idea.
Check out the finished station and illustrations here:

Oh, I almost forgot Merry Christmas to all of you!
