Hey, I'm Mark, 16 years old from Chicago, Illinois. I began drawing when I was 8 or 9 and I just began this whole digital painting thing about 2 months ago. I work in PS CS3 with a 4x6 Graphire 3 (gunna get an intuos in about a week.)
So here goes nothing.....
Can you guess who this is? about 8 hours (this was my second digital painting ever) I pretty much skipped the hair entirely because I couldn't figure out how to draw it.
First Digital painting I ever did. This was based completely off of someone in that huge digital painting tutorial thread's work. If you are the original artist, please post or PM me so I can give you credit. About 4 hours.
Me attempting Rushwolf's style. about 2 hours
Completely unfinished guy I drew from scratch. ~1 hr
Self portrait GONE WRONG (lol) ~ 2hrs.
Indian Guru....~4 hrs
Please give me your honest input, however harsh it may be. I hope you guys enjoy these and I'll try to put up some of my Pencils later.

Hey man, you already got some good stuff going..! its a bit hard to critique.. because there is so much that goes into making characters.. anatomy, gesture, clothes, perspective, edges, face...you name it.. if i were you i'd just keep it up at the moment.. don't get lazy or anything, you're off to a good start when you say you've spent 8 hours on something.. that is what you would wanna keep doing
make sure you broaden your horizons.. always challenge yourself.. you say you've drawn since young age.. that means you have bad and good habits stuck with you, especially if you've drawn intense for so long
I'd say you should grab an anatomy book.. hogarth dynamic figures is the book I recommend.. also "complete guide to figure drawing" by George. Bridgman is very good.. mainly for rythm ,pose and balance.. !
I like how you've blended in your "fail" image... don't blend towards pure black unless you really really need to... there are few places in the real world where pure black exists... "darkness" is almost always blue or a very dark brown if the light is very ambient. of course temperature matters as well!
so yeah.. just do what you're doing.. expand a little... characters..poses as i mentioned..
http://posemaniacs.com <--- great site.. check out the 30 second drawing flash app ... its verryyyy good practice if you're not used to variation within your characters .. it has hundreds of poses , and also different speeds and difficulties...
anyway.. keep it up, i'll be keeping an eye on this thread for sure!

Hey man, great start with your SB, I wish I had your talent at your age! I'm really liking your studies and the colors you're using. I don't have too much to critique, as I can tell you're learning a lot already just by doing these studies, but I would like to see more finished work with more solid lines. So keep it up, and keep updating! I hope to see more soon
