    not a bad start, but I do think you're leaping ahead way too far. most of the issues I can see in your drawings are proportion and construction related. you're then trying to cover these issues up with colours and shading etc, but they always show through.

    my advice would be to make sure your foundations become a lot more solid - focus entirely on your shapes/volumes and lines. pencil (without eraser) is great for this because it'll really expose your problems so you can focus on them. photoshop tends to gloss these over, which means you won't be able to fix them.

    Construction is all about creating your drawings in the correct sequence of steps, i.e. start with big shapes and gradually work towards smaller detail. That's a BIG IMPORTANT concept! Andrew Loomis has written excellent books on this topic - You can download them pretty much anywhere because they're decades out of print. I recommend his "successful drawing". You'll find if you follow this then most of your proportion issues will disappear too.

    there's other books by Bridgman and Hogarth, but Loomis is by far the best all-round instruction I find.

    I know it's a lot of work (because I'm still going through it) but trust me it's well worth it.

    hope this helps, I see I ranted for a bit there. ping me if you got any questions, I'll be glad to help

    First thanks for comment in my SB. I've seen your work and I recommend to you doing more perspective studies, get an object an draw it in different positions, it will help you to think in 3D. Keep working

    dude dont give up on that landscape! post an update!

    landscapes are tough for me too, but try to approach it the same way you would anything. start with the big shapes. dont get caught up in the details until youve got the bigger shapes down. not just the lines, but the tones as well. then move on to the next smallest shape, and so on.

    your colors are all very bright which makes it hard to see any form in those mountains.

    you painted the one in the back blue, but the other two on the left are also quite blue in the photo. they arent getting direct sunlight so they get all their light from the sky. then the farther in the distance you go, the bluer in hue they would start to get.

    keep drawing everyday!!!

    Oh yeah, I agree with Nlete : the rendering of the hair of the 2nd horse is awesome!
    You always seems to be so natural when it comes to rendering. Maybe you're one of those people who are destined to be tonal artists (drawing purely using tone etc.)

    SO this girl is curvy, she has like curves on curvers, very easy on the eye though( ) But my moms scanner is so shitting it didn't pick up any of the shading on the right arm (our left) and the left arm looks really shitty, it looks a lot better in RL then on the scan

    So these were random martial arts poses that I found, there is a lot of forshortening (which I am not good at) which is why I am doing them so I can get better at doing them and they won't suck so much lol!
