Are you using Photoshop or an iPad? If you're using the iPad, Procreate has blenders like 'Just Add Water' and there are particle brushes that really run as if they were watery. If you're in Photoshop, try making the brush bigger and softening. That way you can see more color mixing. Play with the opacity to mix more colors. I'm no expert though - I've only started doing digital watercolor this year. Will's class was really helpful.

@Lee-Holland Thanks, Lee. The first one I uploaded was cropped poorly. Here's what it really looks like (I reuploaded it).
First Time Posting - Feedback / Critique on my Illustrations?
Hi everyone. I'm a junior in college who has learned so much Will, Lee, Jake, and Jaime on this site. I'll be putting together a portfolio this year and would benefit by any of your suggestions. I'd like to make my illustrations more dynamic and use more perspective. I've also been told to draw more kids, so I'll work on that too. Are there mistakes that you see of things that I do to improve these? Should I include these in my portfolio? Thanks, Krister.
Here are 3 illustrations that were done with a mix of tradition (pencil / watercolor / gouache) + digital. All of these were done for school work. The first one was a scene from the Snow Queen when Gerda is surprised by the snow bees. The second is Horatio During the Crisis (Horatio Hornblower as a shrew), and the 3rd Lost City with an adventure loving rabbit.
