Nice start. My first tought is that it Seems like your avoiding to do faces I could be wrong ofcoarse. If not just trouw them in and dont be affraid. Practise faces and with your skill I think you would improve fast. Step out of your comfort zones that way you will improve and learn the most. Keep it up. And again Nice start!

Great start. Think about lighting. In your head, imagine exactly where the light is coming from and apply that to your entire figure. Right now, shoulders have different light sources from heads, heads have different light sources from bodies.
It's clear that you're imaginative, and willing to put in the time.

hello and welcome to CA
I like your textures\overall mood but without faces\anatomy they are incomplete
do faces, lots of em'; preferably thinking about how they are constructed (that is, skin over muscles over bones).
also construct simple human mannequins (Andrew Loomis has nice examples of those) and doing gesture studies.

Sweet man, only thing that kinda stands out to me. Is that it seems like you're photo bashing, a lot. That's fine, because from what I've heard at least. It's common practice in the industry. But post #6 kinda tells the story, I think that you should focus more on the main part which is painting, drawing and fundamentals. There's no shortcut. And I am not trying to be mean or anything, I hope that you don't take it that way.
But post #6 showed a very gigantic gap in quality. You need to get out of your comfort zones and do things the hard way, everything else is just icing on the cake.
The reason why I say this is because people often shower each other with nice words and all, but that doesn't really help. If anything, being overly positive can be more harmful than good.
Work on your fundamentals and I am sure you'll see humongous leaps Soon™ ^^...

the 2 before the last 2 are really awsome. cool background story can eveolve from it and the compositions are really nicely done

But yes, I'm totally in agree with your opinion. Reasons because I had a lot of Photobash is because my past jobs asked for it and until some point you tend to become what you do the most. Working on fixing that, tho
Also, something I just finished.

Dude your images have a really amazing sense of mood and drama achieved primarily through you're lighting.
I recommend doing some studies of human faces though, at the moment it feels like they're definitely your weakest area.
