In need of criticism <3

Hey guys, im looking for some serious criticism of my art style. Im aspiring for a career in digital painting/illustration and feel i'm in need of a nudge from some fellow artists!

Basically i would love if you guys could give me some serious criticism about my work and tell me what -as a viewer- you dont like, would add to or think i should change about my artwork. Dont be afraid to be harsh.
I'd also love it if you could tell me what you DO like about them also ^^ so i know what kinds of things should be kept or developed (And also to sooth some of the burns ^^; )

Im hoping to start doing commissions some day, though my gallery is in desperate need of filling, so i would like to ask;
Based on my work how far off commission standard do you think my artwork is?

Also, my painting technique is still very much in the development stage but the two pieces below are a pretty good example as to the foundations of my art style so far :meow:

Basically any advice/tips would be immensely appreciated! :happybounce:

Thumbshare is a forum like this one, but when you ask people to comment you have to do the same for them.

When a moderator finds this here they shut it down, and say this is for thumbshare.

It really is.

That is what thumbshare is for.

This forums is for digital art so people can talk about issues on how to do digital art, like how to improve, and just talk about digital art. But, the purpose of this forums in separate from thumb share.

When people what to talk about digital art the come here, and even if some reply they are not here for judging art and being a critic. If they want to do that they would be in the Thumbshare forums.

If this topic was I need help with lighting, a lot of people might comment they need the same kind of help, but you get people that can help you improve your lighting.

So if this thread fades away without some critics on your art then you are just asking the wrong people.

I wanted to say something, but =AlanTheRobot pretty much nailed everything I could analyze off your art.

About the girl's eyes, it looked flat because of the angle of the eyelids; they're curving down a bit too much. The fingers are a bit flat - the joints aren't visible, and the fingers are unnaturally straight.

And yeah, lighting is freaking awesome.

^^ thank you so much for taking the time to consider my work! <3 i totally see what you've pointed out :] I also noticed that the two aspects of my pieces that you've praised is related to the lighting, so i'll definitely be focusing on that a bit more in my future projects.

Yeah i see what you mean :] i've also noticed that the areas identified as the best are the less worried about areas. Take the mermaids face for example; i spent so much time worrying about how to make her look (e.g more manga-y or realistic?) that i uh- kinda forgot to include basic facial proportions ^^; (wow her ears are actually level with her CHIN? lol) So i recon the best tip is just to work on it and work on it until it looks eye catching and correct.

:happybounce: all the feedback i've had so far has been really helpful! thankyou so much!
