Great work - do you use illustrator?
I especially like the gold in the second one. My wife, an artist, suggested that you add a bit of that same gold elsewhere, like in the skyline or on the characters to bring your eye around the image more. As it is, your eye kind of rests in the gold and doesn't move much around the painting.
We both really like your work!
Uterus, do your thing!

You need to do more planning and include your process in the portfolio. To show an art director you wont break his/her budget.

What is the application of this portfolio?
How close are you to applying for an industry position if that is your intent?About a year away.
What do you feel your own weakness are and what specifically would you like feedback on outside of general critiques?My art is boring. Even to me. I have a lot of technical weakness, but mainly my problem is concept and design.
Have you researched what company/application you are going to apply to? and you are tweaking your porfolio to appeal to them/clientèle ?Not yet, but that's a fantastic idea and I've heard people suggest the same.
These all appear to be unfinished save for the second one. Yet that is only relative to the others. You could pass it off as a quick color study fore a more fleshed out peice but not much more I think.
The poses all being generally the same pedestrian basic-structure type deals scream a lack of sophistication. They just look unfinished- and if you are considering them finished- You should return to studying the fundamentals because that is a severe limitiation.These aren't finished, but that doesn't change the fact that the poses are weak. Another problem of mine.
In every piece it feels the composition/pose/etc. was dictated by your comfort zone and that you went with the first idea you fleshed out. I get very little sense of planning and very much of reacting as you went a long.Spot on there...
e: I re-read this and can see how this might seem harsh or that Im picking on you. But these are just questions and observations from personal experience that I am relating to your situation. I by no means wish to discourage you. I hope the action to address some of the things I have raised benefits you.
