hey thanks guys, I went back and did some editing with the picture that I don't currently have with me right now considering I have to use the library. Straightened up the middle bits and also made the figure and the arch a bit bigger to minimize negative space. Also started putting a bit of color into the whales.. well.. because whales are indeed awesome! XD
A celtic spiral? Sweet.
I think the leaf gal looks a little odd though, maybe because the leaves don't match the contours of her face as well as the stone gal's do.

I can't really suggest anything, but I notice that on the top drawing that my eyes are drawn to the spirals at the top. Now i'm not sure if that is the focal point of the composition as I assume it would be the man at the center. But you could use the clouds and the motion of the whales to help draw the eye to the man (assuming that is what you are wanting to do). It's a really cool painting though, very interesting elements in it. The bottom drawing is also looking great, was it done from reference at all?
The kombucha mushroom people, sitting around all day.
The bottom one is not done from reference, the top one, the whales were taken from reference a bit, but not copied. The main focal point would be the spiral, this was a commission at first, but the person lost contact with me so I decided to go ahead and finish it. This was originally for a CD cover.
I want some flying whales.
You are so good at coloring. You should show us how.

Hey, nice start on the ship designs. Three of them seem to be variations on the same design theme.
Is your comic going to be painted? Or are you going to be doing linework, cel-shading, etc.? You may consider sketching out the line work for the ships as well. Taking the time to do so, especially in an isometric view will make it much easier to draw from any angle when you start working on the comic since you've already drawn out all the detail. It's easier to paint designs since you can infer details that aren't actually painted in unlike linework, so it may be a bit more work.
