i am not gonna bother to put things in chronological order. some are old especially the paintings which go back to a year or 2 ago.i see a pencil piece in specific with a date on it, but most are relatively from the last couple of months.
so here it is:

so some of this stuff is very crude, especially the environments which i just started to try and get better at, but i want to blame it all on the fact that this is my first year practicing with digital work. anyways im just making excuse :b
So there you go your up to date! now plz let me here your thoughts!

Your figures are really powerful. I love your colors quite a bit. I agree with the above poster that the scenery doesn't have the same punch, and I wonder if part of it is the color choice, which is a bit crayola-e and oddly out of sync with your mesmerizing pallets on your people.
Some really sharp paintings you have here. Especially the faces look fantastic.
You mentioned you want to improve your landscapes. Don't know how close the ones you have posted are to your reference, but you could probably improve by paying more attention to the angles of the shapes. The mountain sides seem to be too parrallel for example. Also you use only hard edges where you probably should use a mix of soft and hard, like where the mountains meets the water.
Keep posting and stay happy.

I really like the big brush sizes you used for your enviroment studies and the solid colors as well. Your pencil shading is sweet! I really need to work on my oneday, im just really far down the perspective rabbit whole right now. Cant get out just yet keep up the good work!!
