I've been here for a while but never actually posted. Figured that I'm probably missing out.
To cut it short, I like to paint with Photoshop, using reference. This is today's work, unfinished:
Just wondering, what can I really do to paint better? I eyedrop colours from the original picture, the base ones at least, then mesh up together on a blank canvas. Regular brush, size and opacity on pressure sensitivity (Intuos2 tablet). One layer. I always paint on an A4-size, 300 dpi canvas.
Step-by-step of the last one:
All "speed paintings", referenced. Looking for any critiques, advices, however harsh, please.
Thank you in advance.
[Edit] Apologies for posting in the wrong section.

what can I really do to paint better?
keep on painting
working from ref is great but there really isnt much to crit for it, its either you captured the likeness or you didnt. You definitely did in these, and i can see youve learned alot with each one. One thing you can move away from is colorpicking with the eyedropper. The values look good but you could probably experiment more with colors, throwing in cools against the warm, saturation..itll be more fun to paint as well.
You've gone to the small brushes too soon. You should work with brushes that feel too large for comfort (though you will eventually not only get comfortable, but will prefer to paint this way and things will pop out much sooner).
Not bad, but unnecessarily scribbly.
I like your work... post more...
Yeap ! Post more !
