    I'm a 16 year old aspiring concept artist for the media industry, I just want to make sure I'm heading in the right direction when conveying my art, and if the fundamentals are all there. Appreciate the critiques, cheers.

    Wow! For your age you have tons of potential! Makes me jealous XD. Anyway, you seem to have a very strong grasp of things at play. A couple of things though, I notice that your using a lot of texture work, which is fine, but if your trying to learn its generally better for understanding to go without and maybe try to do more just using regular brushes. One small issue at the moment is also perspective, just looks strange so make sure your not guessing too much. Its not much but keep practicing!

    Thank you MaximusT! I see exactly what your saying, you have opened my eyes up. I will keep those pointers in mind next time I do a painting and I will keep posting them in this thread. Cheers!

    You're doing great, but you need to learn how to focus the viewer and lead their eyes. This is best done by doing a few Master Studies to learn about edges, then bring that back into you pictures.

    It would help you to think of them as lit environments, not "colored".

    Wow you're really good! I love the greyscale image of the castles. I agree with the others. I 'd recommend reserving most of your details for the main focal point in your images. For example, for the forest image my eyes don't particularly go anywhere and sort of wander over the place due to the amount of details.
