The only way i can get better as an artist is to look at art better than my art. Post your traditional art if you think it is better or equal to my skill level.

Comment of my art if you would like

I see you like portraits. :)
I like how you're not afraid of using colour. I find it sort of difficult, my major fault at using watercolours.
Your style is sort of expressionistic, so I think you shouldn't focus too much on details. However if you want to make your style more realistic you should concentrate how to portray those details less literally. For example, Jacksons 3 eyelashes portrayed with 3 strong strokes drags downs the overall feeling of the painting. There are more ways to portray details other than literally drawing them. I like practising with croquis because I don't have time to think about details. Also using oil colours one should work from darker to lighter.

Oh, sorry I just sort of wrote my thoughts here as I was trying to get my piece-of-junk- internet connection to work. :D

i know what painters are told to do when painting from dark to light but i developed a better method that works for me. I tend to breaks rules because i have a better way. I think the only thing that matters is the end result.

Me too. I've only been taught in oil painting so I just do whatever I feel like in watercolor paintings. :D
I just said that because I felt your painting of Carmen, especially her hair, would've benefited from that principle. :)
