    Looks good. I'd say push the contrast and establish some midtones. The values aren't blending so well; crank down the opacity to blend them together, especially on the grapes. The planes on that apple look great.

    For that pumpkin, I'd say to establish a fuller range of values. It looks a tad flat right now.

    Keep it up!

    on the pumpkin one, one suggestion would be to do what artsy folks call "turning the form." make a layer on top and set it to "soft light." then grab a big fuzzy round brush, pick a nearly-black hue of orange and hit the lower left edges of the pumpkin with it. keep it very subtle and build it up. then do the same on the upper right, but to a much less obvious degree. finally, pick a nearly-white hue of orange (adding a bit of yellow helps, or adding blue if you want to go for contrasting sky-ish highlights) and move your highlight just inside of the shadow on the upper right (follow the form of the pumpkin with them). lastly, modify the stem shadow to follow the shape of the stem. you'll start to get that spherical feeling from it. check the attachment to see what i mean.

    hope that helps!

    Sourgasm beat me to my critique, so I suggest you read his post a second time.

    When applying colours, be sure you check out how they work in real life, or at least from a quality photo. The world isn't as vibrant as we think it is in most cases.

    Yea..

    Alright, so im working on an idea for the current chow, their are apparently obvious mistakes that i will hopefully work through.

    Crits welcome

    break from vent, studying life, ref and stuff. Will return in a month or so.. + Where can i get allot of quick hand pics, of course the internet, but i was thinking of a posemaniac approach, i tried their system, its in Japanese and loads quite slowly..

    another face

    well at least its an improvement on the one above. Um, is their a site or thread on CA that tells you how what base color appears more where, like the nose is more red for ex-- i think. Also what is a good way to make pores on photoshop or add detail to skin?

    I'd say to just keep drawing and working on your values more. Some of your pieces appear more flat because you just need more contrast between the lights and darks. Maybe some value studies would work?

    ...a perpetual plan for discovery days,where everyone can take part in "purposeless play".

    I think you're at a place where the best thing you can do is just continue to push forward. Just the act of drawing and concentrating on making a drawing will help you make the improvements you want.

    A suggestion from my perspective, focus in a little bit and push yourself with just line, get it as tight as you can. IF you get bored with that , try getting some value in. Just a thinking out loud kinda thing. Keep at it man.

    Want to see more

    You have a great start on your sketchbook. I want to see more of your stuff. Especially more pencil on paper. You seem to have a good eye for you the gesture, but I think it would help you to work more analog. When working in Photoshop work in more values. Something you may try is to only work in greyscale for a while. Really try to push some of the tones.

    More stuff

    Quick sketch with the stream and a random leg/bone study i did on photoshop.

    I tried to use a deeper difference in values on these two pics. Suggestions + tips for environments would be appreciated.

    IRONFISHGOON:I would like to put my pen and paper stuff on here but i cannot i dont have the stuff to do it.

    AVEH: Yea, now is probably a good spot to start, what better age than 16?

    SILVESTRI99: Yea, i have heard that my values are often low created flat images, so im going to try and change that.

    Hey tiny Turtle, nice studies man Now do the same with the environments as with the everything else, you know the drill, study from ref photos or life studies first to build a visual library then start doing stuff from imagination, keep at it

    the mountains look great i might suggest more color IE: Emphasizing the purple and blues

    also perhaps emphasize the distance in the mountains far away by lowering the contrast and pumping up the contrasty parts of the foreground

    just my 2 cents
