Space wizard art training
Hey CA, Ill introduce myself I'm a 16 yr old kid living down under, my dream is to be a concept artist when I finish my education or at least have an occupation that has something to do with art. Ive been a lurker for awhile and finally decided to start my own sketchbook
Here is my very first attempt at digital art, finally pushed my self to try it out and its probably the most fun Ive had with art in a long time. It's a colour study using a ref, I made the mistake of using a semi low resolution and it came back and bit me on the arse when I was detailing the face and hands. Tomorrow I should upload a few other pencil sketches
Crits are appreciated

The standing lady could use some help anatomically. Legs are off.
Try some studies with simple objects to get the hang of color, light, and just the way digital painting works. I'm pretty sure the official starter subject in digital painting here at ConceptArt is the apple, haha.
Artists have such a magnificent gift...breathing life into something with just simple lines.

i say to continue with the quick studies, they look very nice. experiment with different line styles with your pencil, and possibly use even more darks that you already do, to up the contrast.
keep it up!

The trick I will tel you is observe detail 24/7. When you walk in the street, look at people walking, standing, try to figure out there bone, there muscle. Look at light, face detail, eyes direction. Alway be aware of what it's around you. Then put on paper what you saw. then look as ref, anatomy, light test to reproduce what is in your mind.
and....practice practice practice.

Psychoboy what do you mean you hope it is gouache?
Lots of homework is piling up since the end of term is approaching but i managed to squeeze in a update, just a few action poses and another chick. I hate my lines, any tips to improve them?

School has been hectic but, one more week and I'll be on holidays and hopefully making many many many drawings and paintings. Here's a little sketch (ref) I managed to whip up before I go to bed.
