Hmm. A bit uninspired, but they aren't always going to turn out great. Next time!

There isn't much contrast. I can't decide if it's sunny or cloudy...

Yep. Kind of a just-get-it-done piece :(

Certainly. Sometimes it works and sometimes not, works.

Actually I found this inspired me to do mine even though my finished work doesn't look similar

I do some. Not on this one though. I usually just blend the colors with the paint brush.

It just takes practice. You aren't going to improve without doing it.

You can do it on paper and scan it in also. I'm suggesting things for you to paint. No more excuses.

Do it or don't do it. Stop complaining and stop making excuses. Do you want to get better? Practice. Just dive in and do it. There's no magic formula. It just takes work. You will not get better by standing on the sidelines.

Have been feeling a bit like that myself of late...Compositionally the tower is definitely the focus but I would say the perspective on the water compared to the tower is off, and the lighting is a bit indistinct.
I am looking forward to next week's challenge.

I actually have a neat idea for next week. I hope it will inspire a little more :)

The character was fun. I'm doing the creature as well. I'll have to try one of the environments sometime.

ooh cool. The sounds were pretty evocative for the creature, and you do swampy well :) I don't think I will get my environment finished, so that it's polished enough, but it's been fun doing it anyway. I really enjoy doing envs...
