    My best advice is: Don't rush. Always do your absolute best. Paint right out at the edge of your abilities and don't settle.

    I'll add - until you actually know how to properly construct a face, always use reference - otherwise you are making up things you don't understand and it will be doomed to fail.

    It may help to remember that your background IS a light source - when your main light illuminates the wall, it also reflects the background colors onto the figure - dim light to be sure but still...

    I'll repeat what has been said with some emphasis: at this stage of your learning, don't use reference as inspiration, use it to learn: to copy what you see as accurately as possible. Don`t change...

    A few quick thoughts which reflect what others have said. When I look at your DA account, I see essentially the same painting over and over again. You use the same elements over and over - the same...

    My 1st thought is you did a lovely job on the galaxy, but the rest of it doesn't match it. Your landscape is rather random. Stapleton Kearns says "design is not something you observe, it is...

    To me it looks like the 2 dogs and sitting man were drawn separately and then pasted in crammed up against each other, maybe it's something in the perspective. Picture the area each occupies on the...

    I'll add one small point - don't try to draw figures from your imagination yet. If you don't have a live model use photo reference. Copy it exactly. The photo may be boring but this is training...

    I think I like fireblades 1st sketch for the pose but prepsage's downward looking head. I like the burned off hair stubble, it really shows more of the character's origins. The other poses are cool...

    Don't use a game creature as reference - you will end up trying to learn anatomy from somebody else's distortions. You are still not committing - what type of mammal? Human, cat, bear, cow, mouse? ...

    I must agree with some of the others. Both in terms of critique but also your response. Challenging a valid critique with comments about how good you are just makes you sound like a...

    No, hard edged brush for everything. Adjust the opacity down a bit if you need to blend. It's important to think about *why* you are putting down paint in a particular spot - in a figure what plane...
