    update 8/23

    I'm an art student at the University of Oregon and I'm trying to switch to a digital art major (portfolio due at the end of the month!). I came upon this website last August and was completely blown away by the talent on here. It inspired me to start drawing more (A LOT more) and ever since I've been drawing nearly everyday.

    I just bought a pen tablet a few days ago, and am learning how to use Photoshop and Painter. If I can figure out how to post things in this thread, hopefully some of you can give me a few pointers of how to do certain tasks. Right now, I have almost no clue what I'm doing!

    I think the reason they are too huge to post is that they are *literally* too big. The one you have here is too big to fit on my screen in one piece. :/

    Find out what dpi your scanner is going at - it looks at least 300, if not more. To bring down the file size, make it a) a jpeg, and b) go to Image -> Image Size and flip the switch from 'pixels' to 'precent' and set it at around 25%, or so (depending on the original size) and that will cut it down pretty dramatically.

    There's no need for us to see the sketches at such a huge resolution anyway - it only makes them tougher to look at. Keep in mind that the web only goes on 72 dpi.

    So I just resized the images to 3x4. Yet when I went to post the images, they came out super huge again. I checked the saved images to see if they saved under the size, and it says they did. I'll try again later I guess.

    Thanks daestwen for the advice. I actually scanned these at another location (because my scanner didn't come with all the necessary parts in order for it to work!), so when I scan something next time, I'll be sure to remember that.

    You'll want to be sure you are resizing the pixel Dimensions, not the document size. Pixel Dimensions is for on screen, and document size is for printing.

    If you are using photoshop though, an easy way to resize is to make sure resample image is clicked (bicubic should be up) and then change the document size to 72 DPI... it will automatically change your pixel dimensions as well.

    If everything else fails...

    If Photoshop is not helping in resizing, just save those pics in your 'My images' folder. Then open them with Microsoft viewer. Choose image on the tool bar above and from the submenu, select, resize.
    Then you'll see two sliders (one for horizontal dimensions and one for vertical dimensions)
    Then you can either reduce by pixels width and height, or reduce by percentage.
    Seing the size of your images here, you should go with 35%.
    You'll should get a near full screen that way.

    Thanks Mrianna and kanada, I feel like such a nubzor with computer applications.

    Everything here is referenced from all over the place, so some of you might recognize some of this stuff.

    Here's some charcoal drawings I did awhile ago. These will probably be the only charcoal drawings I'll ever post simply because I don't like using charcoal (although I should like it!).

    I didn't think I would post any of these, but there seems to be some issues from construction to rendering. There's some issues I'm probably over looking, so hopefully some one will have advice. Most of these sketches are a few months old, while some of them I did in the last few days.

    I haven't had too much time to draw (well, independently anyway) lately due to a full schedule at school. I am taking a drawing course and a introductory painting course, so maybe I'll post some of those soon. I really have no clue how to paint yet, so those might be amusing/bad.

    Um, my images didn't show up like they usually do. Did I do something different that I wasn't aware of?

    This is probably a premature, cheap, bump-post since I've been meaning to take pictures of my recent life figures drawings. These are just some randoms in the last few weeks from my sketchbook. I haven't been able to sketch much on my own since I've been busy in school. But I suppose that's a lame excuse since I am taking both drawing AND painting (AND 2 digital art classes!).

    I'll probably have another update soon once I stop being lazy and finally bring my camera to class.
