I'm posting this here as I haven't had much critique in my (admittedly short) sketchbook thread and I want some feedback from the fine folks here at CA.
Background info- I've been off of drawing for quite some time (10+years) so I have a lot of ground to make up. At the moment I'm working on a 6 year old Wacom Cintiq Partner tablet, on a laptop with a 17" screen, using GIMP....so the tools aren't the best right now but more than enough for me to learn the ropes. I have little digital illustration experience so everything is new to me. Right now my focus is the basics- learning to work with brushes, layers, the color wheel, etc.
This is the first in a series of generic character portraits I am putting together to sell to desktop publishers of RPG material. Its not done yet but I could tinker around with it forever, right? This is intended to go in a PDF file, hence the grayscale. The workspace is A4 size, 300 dpi. I'd love to hear any and all constructive criticism. Since I'm just rewetting my feet, I'll take any feedback I can get! Thanks in advance.
