    Welcome to the jungle. Not a bad way to begin. What I'm seeing though is an eye and hand that need to be trained. You'll want to start with the basics of art first. The elements and principles. The elements of art are the stuff you'll have learned about in your art classes pretty much anywhere.

    Line, color, shape, form, value, texture and space:
    You can read about them in a bit more detail here.
    http://arthistory.about.com/cs/reference/f/elements.htm

    These are the building blocks for drawing. The basic ingredients of what we do. Then you have the principles of art. These are more of the guidelines to work with (rules don't really exist here), but once you learn about them and learn about them well they help steer you into some of the finer points of drawing and art in general. These are movement, unity, harmony, variety, balance, contrast and proportion and repetition (another that sometimes get brought up is emphasis which just means getting the eye of the viewer to focus on a specific area). The wikipedia entry on this is actually okay to begin with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Principles_of_art

    My suggestions for you at this stage:
    Draw lots of shapes. Get a feel for the basic shape of things you see around you. Break stuff down into it's basic shape components. For example, take a car and break it down into its most basic shapes. Same with a lamp, a table, anything you see can be broken down that way.

    Draw from life a lot. It's easy to want to jump right to what you want to draw, still do that and have fun with it but you should focus on learning how to see at this stage and getting your eyes, brain and hand to work together well. Learning to draw accurately what you see is the best training for this.

    Start perspective now and practice it often. Your landscape for example would improve dramatically with an understanding of it. It's a tough skill to do well but it's easy to learn. There are a million tutorials on it on line and you can combine it with your shape practicing.

    When drawing small objects pick them up and get a sense of how they look from multiple angles. Trust me, when you can turn an object in your mind it makes drawing it super easy. The best fantasy artists can take something that doesn't exist, mentally construct it and turn it to see every part.

    Practice, practice, practice and good luck.

    Awesome. DO MORE!!!!!!!! Well honestly I'd like to know specifically what you want to do with this newfound knowledge. I can appreciate learning merely for its own sake but most of us are working toward a goal here. I'm curious what you want to do with your art. That will sort of direct my future critiques and suggestions if you're willing to divulge that information.

    Doesn't look like much of a failure to me. This is fairly solid. Now take a step back from it. Look at it. What did you learn? Do you see the reflected light going on in the cube on the far right, the side of the cylinder in shadow and on the faces of the polyhedron? You drew it yes but do you SEE it? That's the light bouncing off of the cloth and hitting the shapes that causes that.

    Do you understand the planes that are going on in the cloth? Those are what form the shadows. The raised and lowered parts of it all.

    Some suggestions
    1. Value: You've got a range of value here which is good but you're not really inputing your shadows. There are some yes but you could go with a bit more push in that area. Give yourself permission to use some dark darks and some really strong highlights.

    2. Composition is just as important in drawing from life as it is in illustrations and animation. You need to make it so the eye moves through the image and you as the creator of the image must lead the eye to where you want it to go. Next time you do a still life think about what you want the eye to travel to in it. Change things up. Do a low angle still life so the eye travels up to something at the still life's apex maybe? Or a down shot? Still life can get dull so don't be afraid to shake it up.

    3. Don't give up. Drive will usually beat talent if it holds on long enough and I'm sensing a decent helping of both so you can't really go too wrong.

    4. Always ask questions about what could be improved. That is your greatest help in this. Always ask yourself questions.
