I'm pretty sure I'm getting worse.

Not really anyone's style, bar mine. There are many like it, and most of them better, but this one is mine.
My art was miles more successful back when I was just doing anime and cartoons and stuff. Part of me wonders if I should have just kept with that stuff and never tried to be a shitty painter.
Spent forever grappling with the expression. Expressions are easy when it's just lines, but try to translate them to a painted, mildly correct facial form and suddenly I am the Fresh Prince of Suck.
Another cyberpunk character. These are actually for something, by the way. Was getting a bit sick of homestuck stuff anyway. Updated version of the previous character now with more eyes!
I originally intended for the character to not have eyes, but whatever.
Small note: I actually made a brush and I've been using the absolute fuck of it. I call it the "square". It's brilliant, like the chalk brush but less chalky.

Sorry, felis.Something about the pose feels a bit off, like they're leaning too much and would fall over, or they're not quite standing cleanly on the wood.
Another Mage of Space, request from over at Tumblr. Doing these quickly, because there are several projects I'm working on that I want done and most importantly out of my fucking life.
Hey this one isnt all that bad! i really like the values on the guy, well done.
The light coming off the frog thingy wouldn't hit the fore ground though.
Also the foreground would be too light in value even if the light would hit.
theres something wrong with the composition though.
first off, theres a line in the middle of your picture, you want to avoid that.
ideally you want a 75% dark and 25% light picture, or the other way around.
but this one is like 50-50.
So what i did was added some blacks in your picture.
First i painted your whole foreground black but then i figured the green would probably reflect back onto the foreground cus the green is shot upwards.
its done sloppy cus i need to go to bed now, but you get the idea!
Click on the sig!
Or my thread
I don't dissecting large texts piece by piece. I feel that it... I dunno, de-legitimizes it somehow. Makes the advice seem less helpful then it actually was. So I'll reply as-is.
You're damn right about my total values being weaker then they really ought to be; somehow I think this stems from my actual creation process, what with the amount of black lines I use throwing my original value estimates off and screwing up my darker colours in particular.
The troubles with this particular piece's values, though, originate from the fact that I hadn't decided on the actual specifics of the light source until after I had already done the rocks... and as your paint-over pointed out, that was a mistake.
So anyway, thanks for the tips, and I actually tried to apply some of them here. Went for a much looser sketch, so that I'd be able to get my colours right without a bunch of pesky lines interfering. Also tried to block upwards in value instead of a middle of the range start. I think it worked out alright, even if this is technically a relapse into fanart.
Went for a nightlight effect, and didn't do anything with that motherfucking background.
Sup bro, checked youre art string, some really cool characters you got here! Also enjoyed the composition on you drawings, especially the ones whith forced perspectives gives em a really trippy look.

Most of the characters aren't mine, but sure lets get some perspective up in this bitch.
Actually submitted this piece of fanart to the portal, lets see how it does.

Maybe because it's blocky and his characters still maintain some kind of "depth" to them... (Seems like something you could pull off)
Oh snap, that's pretty fucking awesome. Can only hope to get to that point.
Anyway, a few more of these.
