    If you want to get serious with art then conceptart is a great place to help. It's good to see another teen on here, I don't know if you've been there or not, but you should stop by and try a weekly Teen Challenge. Keep those studies up and you'll go far

    definitely do. no advice really, im in the same boat, i guess everyone is, trial and error, seeing how the best do it, more trial and error, thats the only way!
    i find youtube tutorials interesting too, check out the amazing ones by feng zhu theyre the bollocks.

    My suggestion is value studies. Get a resource pic, desaturate it, paint it, and learn to observe your source and tell the difference between subtle shades.

    Right now your rendering's off -- it looks like you're using pure white for lighting/highlight and it looks out of place. You can tell you're using a hard white brush with lower opacity. Rather than doing that, try using a softer brush and using a colour closer to the one you're highlighting, like a pale green. (Or more a yellowish green for a warm source.)

    Highlights reflect the colour of the source. For example, in natural settings you have warm lighting (the sun/fire/something), and cold shadows. Warm colours are red/orange/yellow, cool leans more towards green/blue. (Also, if lighting is cool, you have cool lighting and warm shadows.)

    I also recommend doing 30 second gestures from Posemaniacs. They're very difficult at first but it teaches you to loosen up and right now your drawings are very stiff.

    I do see a lot of improvement. You've lost the didn't-colour-in-the-gaps look from the beginning and your pencil shading is very well done. Post again soon, and keep drawing every day! I look forward to seeing more posts.

    Right now, the composition for your teen challenge entry is fairly boring. Try doing some thumbnails with different points of view to get more interesting angles. Perhaps some views from slightly below and behind the tank or even from the air behind aerial vehicle. Make the viewer part of the action, not just looking at the action from a distance.
