Hmmmm...I like where you're going with all of it, but I think you're still looking for yourself with it.

 

 

Great colors, good technique, but they're sort of all over the place.

 

The one factor that seems to tie them in is the "blast beams" in most of them. I'd work off of that subtle idea and build around it.

 

 

For example: I have a friend who paints monsters and what not, and in most of his painting appears these little "egg workers" doing things. They sort of make a series and develop a sense of continuation and...uh, something else I can't think of right now.

I like the flat look actually. I'm moving that way myself with some new shapes and layers in my abstracts. Nothing wrong with that, unless that's now what you want in your work I suppose.

the flat look is definately working for what your doing, if you want them too look layered adding a subtle shadow to the edge where things overlap it would help out a bit but i say work with what you already have,

Personally, I like the blue house piece the best out of all of that you posted...

I like the direction youre going in, however its a tough one to pull off. I would look into vintage day of the dead designs to get the sugar skulls down.

 

On a technical level, I would try to work on cleaning up the lines just a bit. Make the lines pin point and I think you'll find your style.

 

Keep it up though.

In all honesty, I say do some drugs or get shitfaced...blast some music and get loose.

 

 

Take your ideas and paint them without giving a fuck, once or twice.

 

Maybe give yourself a one hour timeline on one piece.

 

Scribble outside the lines a lil'. Leave a few blank spots.

 

What's to lose?

thanks everyone for all your opinions and advice i really do appreciate all the feedback my work starts off with an idea in my head and then it evolves during the processes i try to stay as clean as i can. with the bottom examples in my first post above you can see that im try to get messy/sloppy but using slops of paint but still trying to have a balance of clean.
