I like the idea of the skull. It could also be a mask decorated like that, that is hiding the true self. When I read cautious of showing I get the impression of something hidden and looking around or peeking to see if it's safe to 'relax' and be themselves.

RE: 3rd Thursday attempt - critique please!
I agree about the puddle and pose, can try a before and after splash image. I think a lighter colored water with a shadow reflections could be interesting.
You could even try a pose with them kicking the water which turns into rainbows and birds flying up.
For thumbnails I think it's just a matter of getting used to posting rough ideas.
RE: 3rd Thursday April - magic show
@gimmehummus love the concept, I'm not sure how close to the house the person in the back is but they appear really big perspective wise in general. The chairs perspective/distance might need a quick look as well.
I'd say if possible try removing the house and moving the person half out of frame, into the frame and see how that looks.
Personally I don't think the house gives as much to the story, other then being an outdoor setting, where the interaction with rabbits and people say much more. You could even try shrinking the size of the house even as see.
Either way I love the concept and story.
RE: 3rd Thursday WIP - 2 questions!!!
@NoWayMe I like the light as it is now and if you are in a dense forest even in daylight it can be much darker in the forest. I think you could even push the light green in the background a bit depending on time of day and temperature of lighting.
The lines work just refine them for atmospheric perspective, shadow or even make some of them broken lines.
RE: Updated picture of Lucy
@jacs I like it, the mountains gives it the added aspect oh being high up.
Are the stars from the tool box to show it flew out of her hat?
If so maybe make them bigger by the toolbox and smaller towards the hat for a little perspective or even more faded the closer to the hat.
RE: 3rd Thursday - Lucy's Mild Peril - CRITIQUE please
I like the idea, is it after she's fixed the BIG problem? There's something that could be air coming out but lucy is looking opposite to where something is already fixed.
The 2 lines of clouds near the bottom I feel would look better broken up and not singles lines
or even move one to the opposite side in the water.
Another option would be to make the clouds cover the water area as if it was lower level clouds and might provide an area for text too.
