    I know the feeling but you must share. It is the only way to actually compare your work.
    I like your thumbnail sketches and maybe see if you can spend longer on a piece too see how you fair on it.

    Nice values. I really like the composition in the top one of http://attachments.conceptart.org/fo...2&d=1323699495. Maybe work on that some more to create a finished piece?

    Might be a good idea to do some pure line drawings of simple geo shapes. Boxes, cilinders etc (plates from your kitchen are great elipses for instance). Draw them from different angles (standing above them, sitting beside them, etc). It's a good assignment if you want to learn more about form in 3D space and what kind of shape it creates on a 2D surface.

    And lets see some figure drawing / painting too.

    Beautiful studies... I love all of them And the brushstrokes and textures in the first painting are awesome!

    Beautiful work! I love your strokes and just your compositions. I personally have nothing to say atm but just keep up the good work!
    Trying to learn how to critique art. I hope I don't confuse anyone.
    Oh yeah, if you got some time, mind critiquing my art? http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=234050

    Nice start! Study value, contrast, fluent transition from shades to reflexes and highlights, then add color. Strokes in your paintings are kinda muddled and too chaotic but thats just my opinion. Try adding less strokes but get the most out of them. Play with flow and pen pressure. Keep up the good work!
