All of the landscapes you spent some time on are great. There's a lot of successful texture in these.
The speed paintings are cool, but there's always issues with perspective, angles, etc (which is to be expected in speed paintings).
The only thing constructive I have to say is to work on the figure, maybe attend some open figure drawing sessions in your area. Be as finicky with getting your figures right as you are with your textures and details , and you'll be aces in my book.
Thanks. I've been focusing on landscapes this year because I made it my concentration for my studio art class. The only reason for figures in some of them is for scale. It's something I've needed to improve on for a long time and I promise after I submit the landscapes I'm going to work on my anatomy. I can't see myself attending open figure drawing sessions any time in the near future but I'm sure when I start at School of Visual Arts in the Fall I'll be able to improve a lot.
