    Way to go man. Keep on working on your pieces. I would spend more time with each one to really make them shine. Your pieces you have here are good but some look unfinished. I like the painting of the wine glass the best. The distorted reflections in the glass works well. Take care and keep them coming.

    How much time are you spending on your artwork? You may have spent a decent amount of time on your pieces, but it's not coming across that way. Right now what you have is looking a bit rushed. Take your time. Relax. It's definitley quality that outweighs quantity! For whatever reason, I think there's a myth that good artists don't need to spend a lot of time on their artwork--that's COMPLETELY false! Of course as you're getting better you'll become more skilled and make your decisions more quickly, but good artists still spend lots of time making sure that they're statisfied with their work. Someone once said that it's a good idea to spend at least 6 hours on each portfolio piece, and I think that's pretty good advice. You could spend even more if you're willing; you just have to do what's necessary to make your art look great. It's hard work, but I think you'll be really surprised if you just slow down and really learn to see.

    You have the skills. Now all you need is the patience.

    hey

    thanks for the response, I read that also about the 6 hours but I wont be putting most of these in the portfolio. Only ones I am considering is the shoe,wineglass,and the figure drawing. I guess i just felt like putting up some sketches since it is a sketchbook and sketches generally arnt very long .

    Good jump, the sketchbook thing helps keep one motivated. My only advice is to think of how basic shapes such as squares, circles, rectangles, etc. can be manipulated to fit objects. Being able to shape subjects out that way will give you a real feel of the third dimension.
