On the Shoulders of Giants
Digital art piece I worked on over the weekend. Trying to get better at brushes, thanks to the tips from the last piece I worked on. How does this one look?

Good start. I think you should worry right now about getting your values and whole composition down before moving into different brushes or textures. A few questions though, are you going for a painter-ly look, or a more comic-book style (lineart over paint)?
here are my suggestions, find a spot to set your light source, then work on your values (on B/W, easier that way) Your character below has a flat face. If thats a nose, it should probably have a little more volume to it on a side view. Also the legs position is a little weird. You have the right idea, its just not there yet. Look at people when they cross their legs like that, usually one foot pops from below the leg.
I would actually go one step further, and extend your canvas, and make the statue the focus of your piece.
Hope this helps.

It looks like you need to study lighting and volume more, and put the smeary little brushes away until you're ready to start really observing texture.
Since your shapes are pretty simple you could make some models (of the background stones and the big statue at least), light them up with a desk lamp and see where you're going wrong.
