great work so far.
your studies and finished pieces have a lot of heart.
keep it up.
I think you have lots of potential. Just make sure to not put a lot of pressure on yourself to get somewhere with it. The only reason I developed was through small adjustments in my mind. So the more I did the more I learned (if I was paying attention). I suggest trying all kinds of different ways of drawing. Go draw people on a bus, at the mall, ask your friends to pose for you. Try all kinds of different mediums. And the biggest and most important way for an artist to grow, in my mind, is to create and develop "projects". A project can be anything from a painting to a mural to a postcard or tattoo design. The idea is that you should start a project and work on it from start to finish. So for a painting start a sketch, develop an idea with sketching. Then paint it up. THen refine it and refine it over a long period of time until its something beyond what you thought you could do. Learn to keep enhancing in the areas of composition, pattern, contrast, make it dynamic, interesting, make it give a distinct impression or feeling.
When I began to think of my work as projects it really helped me to take things to a new level. Now it wasnt about what I could produce today. It was about how I could change a painting over time. I have all the time in the word now.
Hope that helps!
