    I downloaded the trial version of Painter today. Here's my first digital drawing of a pose I did from imagination (10 minutes). Still getting used to the tiny tablet I'm using
    And I have another quick sketch as well and a couple of updated drawings.

    Mad improvement man Your proportions are kicking ass. Keep up the studies, study the rib cage a bit, looks a bit undeveloped in that latest one. Maybe do some photo studies of faces. See ya.

    I would suggest working with folds in cloth. That seems to be where you are weakest at the moment (from looking at your full body drawings). try taking a piece of fabric and draping it over various things, then sketching what you see.

    SamC - Thanks man! I'll definitely take that advice...I've got a lot of studies ahead of me
    hobo lyra - You're right. Folds in cloth have always been my weakness. I'll take your advice in that one

    Okay...so I'm having a bit more fun with my trial version of Painter. It's a 60 trial...I thought it'd be 30 but I guess not. But anyways...I think I'm starting to get the hang of it. I wonder how good I'll get with it before the 60 days end.
    So yea...I did that same pose again, then tried something different in the second picture. No refs were used.

    My first attempt at color. I really didn't know what I was doing. As you can tell from my sketchbook, I never do color lol. To be honest I dunno if half the stuff I'm doing in Painter is being done in the right method...guess I'll learn somehow.

    Hey no worries, no one enjoys their first digitals. Remember when you're painting, you're portraying form and texture using colours that are being affected by light. Bad wording on that but obvious stuff. They don't really fall into Dark Midtone and Highlight in the sense that the colours only change in value, because in reality they also change in saturation and hue. Overall what I'm trying to say is the only way to learn to paint is to paint from life. I swear by this http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...hlight=bumskee. Wouldn't really try painting from imagination until you've done a few of these and explored different materials. Sorry if this seems patronising, I'm just presuming you don't know this. Good luck and have fun. You'll crack it in no time See you around

    SamC - Ahh thanks!!! That came in handy I'm still a beginner with colors and shadows...hopefully I can improve.

    Well here's my first try at an actual complete piece of digital work. I still have a long way to go.

    A little concept I got started on. Any advice would be great. I'm having a bit of trouble with the abdominal muscles and the ribs especially.

    Why not both? Study a bit and when that gets boring work on the piece above.

    Good to see that you'r updating so often btw, you'll become a pro in no time if you continue like this and work hard.

    Imaginary - That's a good idea. I just hope I'll be able to balance everything with finals coming up. After that it's smooth sailing through my senior year of high school which means more time to practice

    Update on Mr. Alien dude. I think I'm finally figuring out the different brushes in Painter. It was overwhelming when I first started the other day.

    Hey man, really good stuff, looks like your getting the hang of painter. Remember the hips, do some bridgeman studies, there's a few pages somewhere on ribs and hips and how they act together and stuff. Yeah some of your drawings the legs just sprout out of the body, the ribs and the hips sort of rap around the pack (can't remember the name, where the six pack goes ) as if they're on a ball point. Awesome work keep it up

    Hi jackpot anjr90,
    I'd say to do some more anatomy studies, and I would be a good idea to do more colour studies (just like you did with the fruit up there).
    And mate your not doing to bad with the digi's either, hell they look heaps better than my frist paitings!

    continue this hard work and you'll go far.

    SamC - Thanks man i'll work on that.
    JailHouseRock2 - Yup! Can't ever go wrong with studies. Thanks for the words of encouragement

    Agh...it seriously has been too long. I've been so stressed with work. I have 7 papers to type up (one in spanish) and then I have finals! Wont have too much time to draw for the next couple of weeks but I'll try to update as much as I can.
    So here are some Bridgman studies studies and some 45 second posemaniac gestures.

    Nice job on your anatomy studies man I'm definitely seeing good progress. On that last imagined sketch, the proportions looks off. His upper body and arms/hands in particular look very big. Keep going man!

    JailHouseRock2 - Thanks!
    SamC - Thanks for the encouraging words
    zhonked - You're right, it's kinda big. I sensed it too but at that point I just wanted to move onto something else. Thanks!

    So today I was eating at this place called Lenny's and straight ahead was this guy I just HAD to draw. He was practically posing for me even though he had no clue. He was actually talking to himself...might have been a little crazy but whatever. Took me about 25 minutes to draw this.

    Some stuff from Bridgman's Life Drawings. Going back to the basics since I never really focused too much on them.

    These latest updates are great! You really seem to be getting what I said about the hip-ribcage connection. You're cracking out a lot of studies, which is brilliant, but maybe show a character from your head that you've spent some time on..would love to see how you'd apply this study Keep it up

    Imaginary - Thanks!
    SamC - Yes that was great advice you gave me! I'm gonna start doing more characters from my head after my studies just to make sure I'm grasping everything.

    So here's a very very VERY quick thing I sketched up just so see what I could do with no reference. I'm gonna try to get more drawings in today but it'll be difficult with the work load I have. I think I should work on legs, feet, and hands a lot more.

    Hey man, your anatomical studies are looking awesome. I also encourage drawing from life too. Its helped me.

    I think your concepts are interesting. I suggest trying to do more value to give more depth. That's my thought.

    Keep drawing, you have great potential.

    ElandI - Thanks for the tips. I'll make sure to draw from life more often and I'll try adding more value

    Here's a character I started working on today... still in progress. No refs used.

    I think his right foot should turn out a bit, it looks a bit awkward at the moment. What sort of pencil are you using, I just realized these were a4s but the pencil marks looks really big and soft.
