    No, I'm useing a pencil with just about everything I draw, but when I scan them In I reduce them to e-mail size, and that always makes them look fuzzy.

    I haven't figured out how to scan them im and keep the sharpness without going over the file limit...Because everything that you see is actually 8 by 11 inch paper. I just shrunk it down.

    Ok, working on color for the first time.

    Allright, trying out my ability to paint, have to say its quite the learning experience. I proabley shouldn't have picked such a large subject to paint. I wonder if I'll ever get it finished! >.<

    Ok, quality got knocked down, but I think this is were I'm going to keep this picture a while. I'll be doing some metal painting studies, and maybe some other stuff.

    The third best piece of advice I ever got (art related anyways) was: "Always give a head a convincing size and shape to show the skull underneath". Neither of these guys have a convincing head shape to make me think they have a human shaped skull. But the good news is that they're not far off. The proportions of the heads are just a little wack.

    The guy in the grey shirt should have a sllightly higher skull-dome. People's eyes are situated half way between chin and top of head, so his are too high up for the skull he's been given. The guy in the blue shirt on the left should have a larger braincase behind his ear. It's too rounded in too sharply - Your ear is only a little bit more than half way back in real anatomy.

    Hope that's some help, keep drawing. I'm looking forward to the metal paints...

    My advice to you is that your jumping into digital stuff to soon.
    You need to learn how things are built, how they move, and how light reflects on them.
    Your just wasting your time doing digital painting without the understanding of what you are doing. Spend some time working on your basic skills, don't rush things.

    As for the painting above, what do you want me to say.
    Every single piece of artwork that you produce, without the knowledge of how to build it
    will look wrong. Its a kin to trying to build a house without knowing how to put it together.
    You must understand that the most important thing that any pro must practice is patience
    and understanding for what ever direction they take in there career.

    Patience is the key

    Good work by the way.

    still too soon for me?...I'm trying my best not to look like "another teenager / highschool" kid. So I figured doing some digi paintings would help.

    Allright, I'm going to go back to old pencil and paper, and see what I can turn out...

    Here We Go!

    Hey Vhan Juju, I don't really know you, and you probably don't know me either, (lol) but I kept seeing your name in the lounge/art discussion, so I decided to take a look see.

    I'm not a great artist, but I agree with "patience is the key."

    Well from here, it looks like they were all done pretty rushed. (the last one's better, but could still use some love.) I used to have drawings like that too, long time ago, but when I started working longer, I felt more satisfied with what I did, and It felt more accomplishing when I was done.

    Here's a quote that helped alot:

    "No one really remembers how fast you made it.

    They remember how good it was done."

    Lol, It sucks that I'm asian. I can't help it if I look like a million other people.

    My Sketchbook: Critics and Comments would be AWESOME.

    Well, it looks like I'm just going to have to prove you wrong arent I?

    Ok, first things first.
    ALL artist need to practice, practice, practice. Foundations are so important. I had to take steps back and work on mine for instance. Already I and fellow ca-ers see improvement. But I truly don't see anything wrong with drawing digitally. Do some studies from ref and life. it helps too.

    Well I would suggest working on your lines first. Wait a little with the rendering and so. Just keep working on the lines and creating form as simple as possible

    Ok, I have absolutley no acess to a scanner, and I can't even afford a sketchbook right now, so my drawing is being performed on the back of receits from the gas station (go figure)

    But I am still working on my art...so hopefully one day I'll get to show off my inprovements!
