    Looking for constructive criticism on 2 paintings.

    Hey, I'm Gal and I'm a 17-year-old guy from Israel.
    These 2 pieces are digital paintings I'm working on (as personal work and not for a job) and I'm looking for opinions on what to change/likes and dislikes of people.
    Don't be afraid to be rude, just give honest opinions.
    In the first one, I'm gonna keep it black and white btw.

    The top one looks too black on black to really know what is going on.

    The bottom one looks to have a good setup, but htis suffers from a unfinished scenery (those trees are 1/3 of it!), and I wasn't sure aht that rock was doing for the longest time.

    I am also not certain about those clouds from the ground to the sky.. and a moon.. but intense sunlight over parts?
    My commentary is a gift to you.

    Hiya I like the ideas in both of them ............. however!

    Top one needs a new light source, with the sun setting or rising behind its going to be a dark image and we wouldn't see to much of the horse and rider just Highlights, edge lighting and reflected light bounced off things. So make you life easier and put it someplace where it adds to the image and doesn't make your life a nightmare!

    I agree with Modi123 and the bottom one needs help the environment needs way more work and the dude throwing the blade isn't selling the action, Take yourself outside and throw a ball at a wall really hard, feel the way your body moves and your centre of gravity shifts, this is what is missing from the image.

    It will really help your understanding if you do some "Gesture" studies. This art game is more about understanding than it is about raw talent! and the worse thing is the more you find out the more you realise how much you don't know.
    But if it helps we are all in the same boat and you are in exactly right place at the moment to get the help you need.

    Best wishes with the art and I hope this helps.
