Well first off welcome!
second off your a junior in HS right.? so am I. and I love 3d also :)
Your work looks very nice. Need some work with the textures, but all in all you have nice models. I have been trying to dump STANDARD procedural mapping for along time in hopes to create my own textures and slap those on.
For the images:
I dont really see a horizon line. looks like the grass just "stops" and then the sky appears. the well seeing as its closest, would need a lot bettertextures, and modeling. Right now its wayyy to clean. break it up and slap some crooked nails into it. THat rope, unweave it a little with textures and alpha maped textures to give transparency on the threads.apply a bump map the the bricks, or harder but much more visually appealing (personall) take a cube, deform like 3 diff versions and "build that well, that apply textures. instead of having a cylinder itself. The house need works with textures as well. There are a lot of good text tutorials at www.3dtotal.com You have done some nice grass, and by the looks of the house etc, some dead grass and patched of no grass might help.
The mushroom village:
I see the same texture on all mushroom, that a wee bit lame. Why is EVERYONE in the village awake at night? Again I see no horizon. Just the cliffs end and the sky starts. some vegetation here and there would be nice as well. maybe some rocks. and then the moon should be casting some light. lastly the fire isnt creating any shadows....? hehe...
keep going, and try the Joan Of Arc tutorial, and Karabo's Car tutorial, those will give you a WORLD of 3d help.
