I've got my painting built up to where it's not terribly offensive for the average non-painter, but there's lots of room for improvement here.
I'm primarily interested in getting my colors/lighting working better. There are other problems, but that's the one I'd like to focus on.
Anyway, here's what I've got -

The female model is by Dr. Wong Hua, with some minor changes and texturing by myself.
