Hi everyone. Its been a while since I posted. Been tooo busy with Uni work. But I've got the nod to post some work I've done for Red Mist Castle. They're all fantasy based, which isn't exactly my top genre, but its all about variety
Hope you like

nice work man
Once again congrats on the new postition.
Nice work here, my favs are 1, 5 and 6. The atmosphere on them is excellent. I think that you are stuggling with some perspective issues on a couple of the images especially 8 and 9. On both the right sides of the buildings have been brought up to far to fit into the 3 point perspective.
Sorry I can't describe it better.
Nice work, good to see youve been keeping busy.
some great stuff!
the one im having some problems with is that blue image near the bottom... with all the stuff glowing, i cant really make out the shapes, i cant tell what the material is on some of the objects either, it just confuses me.
very cool man, keep going
Jon, those are sick!! That firest image is my favorite, great sense of depth.
Keep it up, bro!!

Niiiice stuff, man. I like 2, 6, 8, 9 and 11. 2 is stunning and the composition in both 8 and 9 make them look really cool, hehe. 6, 9 and 11 look epic. Really like the use of texture throughout and the sense of depth portrayed.
I think some of the buildings/monuments like in piece 3 could do with more detail or be more elaborate. Stuff in Fantasy tends to be a bit OTT, afterall, but if this isn't what the client wanted then coo'...
Nice to see ya around
Seriously nice atmosphere - I saved them all to have as inspiration, the day when I decide to practise my enviro skills... those none-existant ones. Thanks for showing!
nice enviros Jon - it's great to see you continually evolve your work! Your way ahead of where you were just a couple years ago.
Very cool enviros dude, I absolutely love that there is a prevalent mood in all of them, like each can belong to it own movie. Think some of them might do well with some figures/characters. It give a better sense of scales and can bring more life/energy into the environment.
Great work, have some stars dude.
Alrighty Jon, kicking ass like usual!
Keep up the great work,
stay well bro.
the paints are beautiful with great colours and compositions.
a minor crit - i think in this one the piers work against you in suggesting depth. i'd put them a bit closer together as they get farther away from us..
the atmosphere is really strong in all of these - love the one with the rain in it.
