    Is that a tree at the bottom of the painting? Unless that one tree has particular significance, I would not have it dead center.

    Looks like you have a really solid handle on things. One note about the apple/metal/drapery still life... you need to either crop half of it, or add more detail/solidify the edges of the shapes in...

    If you're using feathered brushes, stop right now! Use hard edged brushes. Your shapes will have a lot more definition and solidity. Also think about creating shapes by subtraction... Basically what...

    I think the composition below her waist could be improved. You've got a bunch of movement in the top half, and then in the bottom half things seem pretty rigid. The fish are moving horizontally...

    The idea that "Design" is all straight-laced and clean and in Helvetica etc. etc. and "Art" is this chaotic unintelligible thing is pretty cliché. I guarantee a billion other people have done the...

    One thing I've learned is that no one who does realistic work draws from their mind. When I was a kid I was always amazed at how accurate and lifelike figures were in paintings. I thought everyone...

    It feels like there's still some confusion as to where exactly the light is coming from. In general I think the light is to the right, above him, and ever so slightly in front of him. If the chest is...

    Thinner eyes, squarer jaw, less cinched waist, broader shoulders, maybe a more obvious adam's apple? That might help the character look more masculine. Also, is he wearing heels? The foot position...

    This all looks really good. One thing that is standing out to me is that it seems the rendered bits have a higher contrast/deeper shadows that the painted ones. So in terms of having them fit...

    The values in the dragon painting are too similar I think. If you look at it from far away, nothing really stands out. The highest contrast in the painting is at the far right on the bank of the...

    Hmm I would say get rid of all the black lines that you're using to outline the forms, and just use shading to instead to separate the forms. This mainly applies to the lower half of your character...
