First post on the forum. I have been drawing as a hobby for several years, mostly anthropomorphic animals, and recently I've begun to explore painting. Since I am mostly self-taught my skills have lots of "holes" and there are many things I want to improve even in basic drawing, so I think I'll soon start a sketchbook too. But I'm especially after advice about painting with acrylycs and other traditional media as lately I'm becoming fond of sketching directly with paint rather than doing pencils before, and I'd like to get much more confident with it. I have big troubles improving lighting and palette choice, among other things.
Here are the three largest paintings I did so far. In order they are acrylic on canvas 35x50, acrylic on canvas 40x60 and acrylic on board 35x50.
