I love the way you render in some of these pieces. Ones that stand out:
I think you would love drawing and painting insects. one of my favorites is the potato bug
I think you would learn a ton from painting these. One crucial critique though is LINES you have to get more confident because some of your drawings have what I call the 'wookie' effect
I suffer from this greatly my self but dont be afraid to take your time with your lines because they are the foundation to your painting and ,although you fill it in rather well, the overall look can look wonky and you might not even notice because you get caught up in the almost love making type process that is rendering.
