Hey.. VERY nice start.
First - try to read all the demo posts around - Andrew, Coro, JASON, everyone.
Then get painter :)
For the next one try to watch a little more. Watch proportions, and try to understand form - try a low poly approach - try an outline SP.
If you want to get to the value start with bigger brushes and then go to small ones. Draw black on white first!
Hope it helps. Let's see the next one ;)
Keep it up!

yeah it seems as though your eyes can catch a lot of shapes and stuff. great for a first SP:) i like painter a lot more than photoshop. but i'm not doi'n photomanipulation so...., there ya go:p. honestly, it's a paint program so, you get a crap load of painting options. it probably all boils down to personal preference. you OWE it to yourself to try it though. but be careful...it can be a little intimidating at first.

there are soooooo many tools- brushes to choose from and then there are so many settings for each of these! and even paper type

great first SP! these days i'm practicing by making SPs too
I got some great help from the people on conceptart.org.. mainly keyth and oblio .. so listen to what the tell u :)
I found that after getting basic values, shapes, proportions right.. the most important thing is practice...
Each time you can usually see improvements.
so.. i hope to see more of your work here :)
