In need of a direction.
I really would love to make art the most of my life. I have always been creative in crafts, colors and designs. I would really love to bring the fantasy images and characters in my head to life.
I feel I need a boost, I have been lurking in a lot of art forums where it is nothing about the art, only about popularity and the sexuality of the pieces.
I really want some serious critiques. I will be posting the starting of a character sheet in a few days in hopes for some help, direction and maybe some resources and tools to make my art better.
Here are some of my painted pieces, the first two were done with a mouse so yeah, they prolly could have been better.
I know it is not much, but I want to know where to begin to get better. I am currently doing life drawings studying anatomy. I will try to post a human portrait painting soon as well. I also look forward to growing in my arts along with you all!
Thanks for looking,

Ok I would start a Sketch book and post the majority of your work in that. right now it's a tad bit confusing as to what exactly you want help with.
A few crits on the pieces I see the greatest strengths in.
Your realistic fruits are done quite nicely, sharpen the edges and bring out the contrast a bit more. Also show the shadows where they hit the table, they are too light right now.
Your mountain scene is also a good direction, you need to add more of a light source to it, maybe some gold and a hint of green. try to bring out the texture a bit more too. Make the clouds in the foreground a little more transparent.
Practice practice practice. I would really love to see more of your stuff. Keep it up!

Thanks, I will be doing that starting tomorrow showing some stuff when I get my anatomy practice done.
I enjoy what you have said thank you. The fruit was hard cause it was done with an optical mouse and was sort of a joke. Really nice looking one though LOL.
Thanks again, must play with my mountains a little more and add those colors in some time.

Drawing still lives will help a lot with your shading and discovering where the light touches the object. This will then give your painting a lot more depth.
