I like to draw. Please critique my work so that I may improve.
I did not get this far into drawing skills, by being told my art is perfect.

A young life, 18 years told to follow the rules
set free at last by time
freedom to live as life was made to be;
To explore the open roads before him
to expand knowledge of not only the world, but of himself.

Feelings of Freedom roll in as waves
for the opportunity to do as one pleases has arrived;
To seek out beauty in the valleys and mountains
to bloom friendships in the cities and towns
to find adventure in everyday life;
to create what has not yet been
to fix what has been broken
to find what has been lost.
All things are possible
overwhelming it may be;

Yet, the journey begins.

The great Wave off Kanagawa at Suunset
I painted this on my school brick wall inside the building. I was able to use four bricks instead of the usual one, so it took a lot of extra time to finish, but it came out great.

So if you remember I've critiqued you not too long ago. I'm glad to say you've taken my advice and made some strong improvements! The hair texture is much more bold and noticeable. Because you have a stronger change from light to dark it gives the hair a lot more form. The dress also has some nice contrast with light and dark. however, I encourage you to increase the dark and light even more. your shading is still a little too subtle on the legs. (also, you can draw hands, so why not draw some simple toes? It would make her feel more real). Also the right shoulder is a little lower then the left shoulder. But in general body proportions have improved from when I last saw.

In conclusion. you are improving, keep up the good work. But make sure to increase the color shifts from light to dark to add more form. It would really make your work stand out.
Alright so this is pretty basic in texture, I really like the hair texture but you have to zoom in to be able to see it. The shading is simplified but I think that's fine for the style you have. However you could have added some grooves in the dress and still kept it simple. (Add more texture in the dress, it looks to flat) You can also make the dress more wavy at the bottom.

The shading on the legs is a little too subtle, I suggest making them just a tad darker.

This might just be me, but I think her hair line should be a tad lower.

The shoulders (especially the one on the right) are a too narrow/small, they need to be a little more outward. Her foot on the right is also too square. If you could round it a little it would look dramatically better. Aside from that anatomy looks great.

In conclusion you have done all around a very good job, but you can change a lot of very minor things that would make it look fantastic. I would love to see a reupload of this. Keep it up!
Raining indoors
    Atmosphere could be either be depressing or uplifting based on lighting and building environment
        Could include a person showing sadness or enjoyment based on the mood.
Clouds indoors
    Atmosphere would have an air of fantasy and wonder to it. Bright environment.
        could be a person representing a happy mindset contrasting with someone who is upset that has dark clouds near them.

Galaxy/space environment in everyday things
bland world with galaxy hair
tea/coffee galaxy from the steam
literal mind being blowing and galaxy is the splatter. same concept except with music and headphone music.

Inverse reality
examples- fire is water.
    raining fire, fire extinguisher is fire starter, drinking fire, fish swimming in fire (So on so forth)
        further concept - clouds of fire and sea of fire (Beautiful, not scary)

fantasy worlds
    Basic geometric shapes in 3D form (maybe some 2D shapes) in front of a dark colorful background (like space). Some 3D shapes will have natural worldly things on them such as a TV, radio, a person reading (so on so forth).
         Each world would have its own mood and colorful enviroment.
