Merry Christmas by silverjow
I love how you used last year's christmas piece with santa and his incredibly nippy reindeer as the tattoo on this santa's arm. I also love the "Not quite totally grey yet" look on santa. That look is really working for me.

Overall the piece is realy festive and fun. The facial expressions on the 'elves' are getting a bit exaggerated but I don't think it's too bad, considering the context of the piece.

If I were to pick on something, it would be that I don't think that all their feet would line up on the same ground plane if we extrapolated their leg poses down that far. It seems to me that Santa would have to be standing forward of both of the elves, judging on his estimated foot position, and he is clearly standing behind them, so it creates a little bit of a mental disconnect.

Really though, you make an impression that is difficult to complain about, and as always, this is me really scraping for something to improve upon. A belated Merry Christmas to you too, and thank you for sharing your work!
Winter Solstice by silverjow
I really like the softness of the colours and the pencil lines in this piece. It makes a very warm and inviting impression which can sometimes get lost with the razor-sharp cleanliness of your ink work. Anatomy and perspective appears to be consistent, even with all of the balls floating around in the soup and in the edges surrounding the leg, so kudos for that. The facial expression on the bearded guy just gets me, he is absolutely adorable.

If I'm going to be very picky, I would say that there doesn't look like there's enough room in the bowl for that guy's other leg, and that if I were sitting in a round-bottomed shape like that, I would expect his body to orient toward the centre of the water. I realize that he's moved over to make more room for the other guy in the composition, and that's fine, but I don't get the impression that he's leaning or doing anything other than just relaxing, so I feel like his body should be angled or twisted more toward the centre, putting his crotch more at the location where his thigh is currently.

This is being incredibly picky though. It's a charming piece, thank you for sharing it.

A good piece of green MUST include Ozrig, Bruduk and Bronx (from Genomo). I wouldn't mind adding Tavoh too.
