Hi my name is Alex Garcia, i´m working in my portfolio and would love to hear some critiques on my work in order to get better, here you can see my images.

Feel free to give your opinion.

Thanks in advance.

The main issues I see in your work, is that while you have a knack for portraying what appears to be dramatic contrast and lighting, your actual understanding of form and how to depict volume accurately is not strong enough. You need to do a lot of foundational studies and learn how to depict form and volume accurately. Doing still life helps a lot, because it forces you to depict form and volume with accuracy, or else the objects will look deformed and strange.

Your anatomy/figure also needs a lot of work. You need to use proper references because you're not advanced enough yet to be able to pull off credible looking characters on your own, and you are introducing a lot of mistakes into images where you try to fake what you don't fully understand. You need to do a lot of studies of real people--portraits, figures, from life if possible, and with photos if that's all you have access to. Learn how to depict skin correctly--study how skin reacts to different kinds of lighting, how the specularity level changes according to location on the body and amount of oil secreted.
