Painting failure

If all goes well, I'll be taking a painting class this fall. I've never taken a painting class before and never got instruction other than a demo my highschool teacher did my sophomore year. I have made progress since then (will be posting my first oil- just for laughs), but... I'm still struggling with it.

I was told to put off painting by a Calarts rep at NPD, but damn if I'm gonna stop painting. It really is something therapeutic (when it's going well), and it's just awesome experimenting with different mediums and techniques.

Not sure where I went wrong with this (probably the foundation), but... here it is so far:

I'm planning to work more on it, maybe glaze over some of the foundation hues and values, not sure. Anyway, I put this animation type thing together since I snapped many stills every time the megilp dried on me:
