    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.
