    Very much like the colors in this one!

    I'd like to see your other pieces larger, that one with the robot looks awesome

    False advertising! I was expecting to see a city full of barf, or maybe a city made of barf. But that's not the case

    I think your first pic (with the castle) has a bit too busy a color schema. You've got warms and cools all over the place without a real set plan.

    You've got to think about your light source (I'm assuming that's the sun). It's behind the castle, yet the front of the castle (even all the way to the bottom) is brightly lit and very saturated.

    The first thing to address IMO would be the actual structure of the castle. I would design that out first in 3 pt perspective and get that looking right... and then start planning the placement of your colors. Overall the schema is too saturated and jumbled right now.

    Keep working. There's no barf here... not even barf of the mind
    Thinking connects desire with creation.
    How good are you?

    I like your use of color.. Definitely think that detailing some parts out would help a lot

    @Sage- I agree, the castle was actually a bit of an after thought and I kind of just blocked it without any initial sketch. Went a bit crazy with the colors but I think that's what I like about it, I'm usually alot more considerate of lighting and perspective in realistic work. Anyways, thanks for the constructive criticism!

    @Natalia- Thanks! I know what you mean, I got pretty bored while working on it so I just left it where it was, might come back and refine it later.

    My first attempt at a Sargent copy, took me longer than id like to admit and came out kind of blech.

    Should I give myself a set amount of time to complete these?

    WOAAAAH!! sweet; the only thing i have a lil problem with is the all over the place colour in some, it can be really jarring at times and my attention span suddenly gets reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally short. what i really wish to see is more detail, or at least just refining some parts a bit. but seriously dude, these own!!
