welcome to WC!

nice pieces, but of course i've got a couple thoughts for ya = )

the horse is obviously stylized and i like that, but wonder if the yellow glow around him should be more integrated into the background? especially under his neck/jaw ... if that yellow was spread down to touch the tops of the hills(?) in the background, might be better, yes?

the cow (water buffalo?) is marvelous ... like the edgy composition ... only pick from me would be to note the bottom of the horn is 'kissing' the horizon and that's not a wretchedly bad thing, but general advise is to land things just above or just below another edge instead of kissing.

Thanks ! :)

Totally get what you mean about the horse. I was actually wondering weather it would be better to gid rid of the yellow? But I could spread it down and see how it looks first !

I actually never noticed that with the horn ! Looks like its resting on the horizon! Would I better dropping the sky as then there will be more of a contrast from the horn?
I really appreciate you're advice! Thanks :)

Dropping the horizon line might be good because you usually want to avoid dividing your canvas in in the middle horizontally or vertically. Love the grasses you added to the front :) Welcome to Wetcanvas:wave:

Welcome!
Dont feel bad, its not you. The image loaded often doesnt work.
Notice you have a tendency to position things on the right.. just something to be aware of.
