A while ago I decided I want to learn 3d. In the process I understood the concept is quite vital, even if you don't know how to draw. During my timid attempts I was surprised to see it's not so difficult. And after discovering this great community and thanks to some very useful threads, I took the next step - painting. And I fell in love with it.
I read hundreds of posts, dozens tutorials and tried a few methods:

And Painter with oils worked best for me until now.
I'll do my best to post daily. As always, C&C most welcome.
Thanks for visiting
doodle.. tank in the desert
and some steps as I noticed ppl ask about them. I'll try to post them as often as possible. not only for doodles..
@seth1: thanks a lot bro, very encouraging words. yes, I'm trying to keep my brush economy at a maximum and not jump into details (which is very tempting for the most of us especially in the beginning) I'll try some pencil work sometimes in the near future.. you my friend are very good at it.
I would like to know at how much opacity do you use your brushes??
and also.... try to keep things less blurry, I should be telling myself this too...hehehe
anyways nice tonal studies....most of the tones are right one..but do try a simpler value heirarchy..
@bhanu: thanks for stopping by, mate, appreciated. also for advices.
the opacity is set to pressure. I made a custom brush from the default oil bristle. yes, true, but I guess the blur will go away by itself once I go into details. for now, I'm trying to keep the brush economy as I noticed a lot of ppl struggle with that.
just a quick study
another speedie for your consideration too lazy to paint a background but less is more sometimes..
You seem to be picking it up quite fast, all I can say (which has been said) is add a few sharper, harder edges.
Otherwise, look forward to seeing more.

www.sevans.co.nz , visit them or a puppy dies!
thanks a lot guys for taking some of your time to write here. means a lot.
@carlosranna: thanks buddy I will. Now it's all about studystudystudy
@SEVANS: thanks for advice mate. I have a lot to learn.
another study.. damn, I gotta get back to brush economy! pronto!
thanks for watching
So... you just started painting? Pretty damn impressive man... great enthusiasm. Remember all colors are relative to what they're next to... so all things will seem funny when against white backgrounds.
@Quigleyer: wow thanks buddy. much appreciated. you're right, but for now I want to concentrate more on silhouette, anatomy and brush economy. I noticed it's faster if you do first things first. looks like Painter's the weapon of choice for you also. keep it up man! and come back any time
thanks for stopping by I really appreciate it. The studies in post 1 look great, the study in post 9 looks really good as well. keep up the good work.
Since you are concentrating in anatomy, i must say i feel some things kindda odd on the last one,man. They are the curvature of the spine, that donīt seen to connect very well (might be the clothes, tough....) And the left arm that seens a little too much twisted...
But colors and values are great as hell!
hey guys, sorry I've been busy yesterday. but I'll make it up today and I'll have a nice surprise for you later
@carlosranna: I got tired at the end and that left hand it's kinda messing the silhouette especially as the position of the body is very tense. but overall I'm happy with it. thanks for the feedback bro.
@pathos: thanks kiddo. looking forward to seeing your next work.
I'm also interested in 3d , maybe you could share some website for beginner?
hi guys, sorry, life has an annoying talent of getting in the way.. I'll be back in a couple of days.
@Sigit: thanks mate. try 3dtotal.com, cgsociety and 3dtutorials.sk
hey guys, finally some update.. didn't have much time, I'm in a bigger financial crisis than america :/ but I keep dreaming about the moment when I'll make money from painting and that keeps me going as probably we all do.
so here goes - a study and a quickie ->
..and another quickie
.. and a logo I've drawn for a client
..aaand another one
Nice work mate, ain't Painter great! I can get lost in there for hours. You,ve made a great start, quickly, keep going.
thanks a lot doncam. yepp I love it, but I feel the need to come back to photoshop's simplicity from time to time (like in the last studies). when can I see your SB buddy?
