To be blunt, I'm unsatisfied with my work, and need some extra eyes and helpfulness to improve upon myself. It seems that no matter how much I practice, I seem to lack some... OOMPH.
But as these aren't completed works, I don't feel like I can toss them into critique center just yet and would like advice along the way to completion, please.
I'm 18, I've been doing art all my life, and I practice at least a minimum of five hours a day. I've been mostly self taught, and it's just aggravating. This place is like a haven, and any tips and constructiveness will be a great, great help.
/edit/ Decided to use just these two since they're the most frustrating. /edit/
A concept request I'm working on for an RPG for a friend, and halfway done, but not sure what to do around the face area and how to texture the clothes after I finish shading them.
A concept I did for a game company, still twiddling with it at my own leisure since I didn't finish the background, hightlighting, etc.
Really, and comments on what I need to do with my painting technique, opactiy, sketching, will be reaaally appreciated. Thanks.
