This is how I do it.
-Learn elements of design
-Learn drawing fundamentals
-Sketch your design ideas
-Explore the software. Use every tool.
-Use tutorials like http://psd.tutsplus.com/...
Thanks for the advice. I really like the animation. I use to want to do animation when I was a teen. Once I get my drawing skills down a bit I'll probably give it a try.
I like the perspective practice. I'm a beginner, so your sketchbook has given me some ideas, thanks.
Hey, welcome, I'm also new to the forum. I'm a beginner so all I can say is I like your line work in the first image. I especially like the skull/tentacles guy.
