I especially favor this character. I have been trying to draw a concept of a character I've had in my head, but I couldn't get him right...frustrating. This one is almost close. I might have to go home and redesign a bit, see if I can wrestle this character onto paper. ;)

Wonderful work - like how you put horns and unexpected things in your digital art.

Nice work :D Kind of awesome how the eye draws you in immediately even though the hair is the focus of the lighting :)
This is probably the first time I've seen a demon character combined with a christmas looking theme haha ;)

It's pretty relaxing to look at too. @w@

If there's anything that really amazes me, its well done hair.
And this guy, I just wanna run my fingers through it. A lot.

Looks wonderful to me, but then again my art is just doodling crap anyways. :P

Wish I could make my OCs look like this though! *a bit jealous*

The skin tones look a bit boring. Looks like you just painted on top of a black and white image. The colours always come out much blander that way.
