Hey, i am an amateur artist doing this stuff for fun. I am having problems keeping my paintings from looking too cartoony or having to bright/dull colors. [ATTACH][/ATTACH]
Any help that i can get would be appreciated.
The first thing I notice, if you want to improve, is that you're making the classic mistake of choosing colors that your brain tell you should be there instead of observing with your eye how light and shadow play across a surface. Your brain tells you a green arm is green or a grey wing is grey, but if you really observe and shut off your brain's conventional wisdom, you'll begin to notice that the highlights and shadows of these objects are not green or grey at all, but something else entirely.
Also, the airplane image speaks of another classic perspective issue, harkening back to the Egyptian days. Combining two perspectives. You've combined a horizontal side view, with a vertical 3/4 view. You can't have both at the same time. Your brain will tell you it's common knowledge, but your eye will put the lie to it.
