Are you too lazy to look at my Sketchbook? Of course Not
Hey, what up?!? Im 15 from Wisconsin ... Ive been drawing for a very long time but only started to actually take it seriously since about January of 2008.
Ive been a member here for a while and I posted a sketchbook thread a while ago, but thats long gone. I also decided to try out digital stuff, so I downloaded the trial version of Corel Painter Essentials 4.
These are my first few pieces using it. As you can tell, Im a total newb at this so any and all help is needed! Thanks alot!
I am also wonderin how I can improve the picture quality of my drawings because when I look at them on here, they're crap. I know. So if you have any ideas that'd be great.
I bought a tablet so any new digital stuff (including the eye below) is done with that not the mouse anymore.

Hi, you may want to leave colouring in computer for a while since it will hinder your ability to learn faster, since the computer is another medium to learn from, you are adding the dificulty to learn to draw an paint in the computer plus the dificulty to actually learn to draw and paint well. You are just making things harder for you, stay with pen and pencil until you know very well what you are doing there.
www.fineart.sk read andrew loomis books starting with "succesfull drawing", it will teach you how to correctly light and shade what you draw. For example, in the back and white face, its not very clear what is in shadow and what isnt, since there is not that much difference in value of the zones in light and the zones in shadow.
Keep it up!.

Thats probably a good idea, to stop the coloring/painting of it and work on the lighting. I don't seem to have that big of a problem when Im shading using pencil and paper though. Do you think I could just practice drawing on the computer and leaving out the coloring part?
Thanks alot for your tips, I'll have to look into those books.

That makes sense, especially since I was using a mouse.
Thanks for the tips!
