    Hi Kay, neat work! 

    I think it might help to add labels to your sketches, if the intent is to provide a concept for someone to build as a 3D piece?

    For example in the last sketch, it's hard to tell what the rows of hanging things are in the upper floor. Are they bee hives? Punching bags? Fungus farms? Hanging sausages with fruit slices stuck in them?





    One common shortcut is to do a callout sketch with more detail. You've started one for the hanging things, but you really haven't added enough detail to visually explain what it is. You could add a text callout like "hanging fungus farm" and some explanatory text further explaining it's a fabric bag filled with soil, with mushroom growths. You could also use photos in your callouts, as a shorthand instead of re-painting them. 

    Just some ideas. Hope it helps!

    Been squeezing in some time for my annual self portrait! Might poke at the hair and background a bit more, not sure.

    May I take a shot at creating a 3D version of your "Unlicensed Surgey" concept some time down the road.  For portfolio building purposes only and I'd credit you of course.

    Thanks.

    i) foetus cooker

    I decided to revisit a project I worked on a year ago for a challenge, of a dark ritual by an Oracle Mother who immortalises the ill by turning them into stone.
    I liked the idea and wanted to develop it further without the boundaries of the competition and with what I've learnt in the last year. Here are a couple props which I sketched in ink then painted over.

    thanks for the front! I played around a bit more with this piece, just with light hitting the planet at the back.

    Here is a card illustration I worked on for The Elder Scrolls Legends - Jaws of Oblivion expansion, final cleanup by Björn Hurri.
