not bad but the last one with the sniper has a few issues that pop right out at me.
First off there is no sense of depth. to me it looks like the space ship is in the foreground and is really small because it has the greatest contrast. There is also the issue of not really understanding whats even going on; you cant see the wings of the animal/monster so you have no idea how it got up there there and there is no sense of speed because of the non-shallot attitude of the sniper and the fact that his clothing isn't conveying the strong wind that would be present if he was flying at rocket speed. the last thing is that the sniper guy is looking at the viewer witch doesn't make sense if he is supposed to be shooting down that ship thing and it also breaks the 4th wall witch brings us out of the action.
practice master study's or paint from life and you will gain a better understanding of the things that I am talking about.
tried to work out a routine for my stuff and experimented a little. i think theres some progress in readability and ive done a little anatomy training at times so thanks for poking me in that direction
I think your palettes have gotten much more controlled since the start, I like the moods you've achieved on this one, this one and this one for example. I also like the palette and clear separation of the figure and background on this one. Good construction and pose on this figure! The hands could've used more definition though.
ah well.. there are problems in understanding whats going on in that snow pic i guess. apart from that it was fun to paint that future soldier dood..theres a more detailed version but this one has more clearity
