Some of my first traditional drawings
These are basically in the order i drew them.
And i didn't do anything in between either...it's all i got.
I was quite surprised of the results!
But as a consequence, i am afraid of starting new traditional complex pieces.
Instead, i'm stuck on still life objects, eyes, noses etc.

It's an amazing start! I like the eyes much and the clocks look so realistic! I like your style, great technique

At one point, at the beginning of this year, for 2 months i daily doodled.
It means, that every day, at first for 1-3h i would just draw in photoshop.
Then i shrunk the time down to 30 min, and at one point, to 5 minutes, getting great results!
But i couldn't keep it up so i went on with pencil n paper after precisely 68 daily doodles in photoshop cs2.
Here are just a few i consider my best.
They're in order, so the first are quite bad :p
The pepper and the onionis the point when i was able to do a doodle in 5 minutes. These two i remember well because it amazed me...5 min-7min each.

Crissy, you have some interresting ideas i must say. however there is too much softness in your work, i think that might be the problem of abusing soft brush or not using the ultimate hard round bursh.
I suggest picking up the hard round brush with shape dynamics turned off and other dynamics set, also make sure pen pressure and opacity are at 100% simply control it with your pen, and decrese the hardness for gaining different edges.
About the pencil sketches, they are very good, but i'd suggest trying to simplify some things like those eyelashes , you dont have to paint every single one, just make this area look like it has some of them and make only few of them visible as they are now. Same rule applies for hair.
Hope i was i helped, best wishes ~Ice
PS. I like they way you give your work its speciffic mood via the lightnig, make it your own style.

Thank you very, very much! I lack the confidence of actually having an idea, much less a good one.
About the brushes:I think it is a little bit from both. In some cases when i really want to make it shine, i overuse the soft brush, but i recently changed that, by using much more saturated colours instead. I also use the chalk brush when i paint, set to other dynamics but the opacity n such are set to 70-90. I used the hard round one only on my insects and on the apple...from then on i started mixing the chalk one in, untill i completely lost the hard base brush.
So i just go with a hard brush, set only on other dynamics, with 100% opacity...i'll try my best!
About the eyelashes and details...yeah i soo like to complicate things...and you got me! i tended to do that to hair too...try to draw every thread, from top to bottom gah! Now i know i have to focus more on one point, like the eye dose, after all he can't switch between them at the same time,but i did when i drew it!
Are there any threads that you think might help me?

Some old hand studies. But these reminded me to do some more.
Some of them are after photos, some after my own hand, and at one point when i got confident (in the second sheet) i made a few from imagination; they have a little star-sign on them..did the joints-sketch first though.
I cleaned the scan ins a bit and added the background colour in photoshop.
These are all the hands i did, from the first try at the top of the first page, to the last at the...second page.
Your thoughts and critique are very welcomed!!! Hit me with all you got on these!!

Well hello there Cristina, and thanks for dropping by my thread!
Really cool work so far, Great variety too!
I really like the sky-scape's, fish and bug studies, you seem to have a pretty good idea of colour which is more than I have!
And with those digis, try using a large hard brush to start the pic off. This will give you a more solid base. And I would avoid using the airbrush, and anything too soft.
Dig the hand studies too! Keep those up, the more the better!!!

@____@ geeeeezuz, those eyes. And the clocks. haha those are pretty cool. And it's fun to get into digi because there's so much freedom; such improvement over a year!
As far as critique, keep working on hands and such, you can only get better. ;] I think you should try perhaps to make your brushes more opaque and less airbrush because they look a little messy, but that's more of an opinion than anything.
