Some old painting that i did back in December....



Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

I like the color choices in this, it definitely keeps it dark, giving the impression that you're looking into a dark lair of some sort of creature, however the actual placement of the objects can use a lot of work. Right now the placement of the eggs is very uniform, they are all standing up straight in little sleeve looking things. I think spacing out the eggs more and having some offset would go a long way in making it feel more like a wild creature's nest. You could put one or two really close up to where they go off of the frame and then have a lot way in the back to where they're barely visible in order to really sell the distance and depth of the cave.
Your shading could also use some work, right now there is no clear light source. Most noticeably the eggs are lit from the bottom which would not happen, the light source should be coming from a little overhead probably from a fairly extreme angle since this is a presumably a cave.
Your coloring is very blurry and there's no real sense of depth as you look deeper into the supposed cave, the background middle ground and foreground are all largely the same value and even color; as it stands right now a lot of the objects and values blur into each other. To remedy that you should make the background darker and have it get progressively lighter as it approaches the foreground; doing this will really help to define and bring out your focal point (the eggs). Also be crisper in your lines, don't be afraid do use bold, high-contrasting colors; life is full of them and when you paint with them you'll get very interesting compositions that come off the page really well.
I hope all of that helps in some way, good luck with your future artwork
