    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.

    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.

    @Icecold
    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!!!

    with love,
    matt

    wow I really love the colors you've used on those paintings, but like the others said use now and then a harder brush, it will come out more realistic
    and good luck with the medicine studies, you could combine your art with the medicine
    keep up the good work

    JailHouseRock2 -It was my pleasure! Thank you for stopping by yourself! And yeah..i really like to vary them, depending on my mood. About my colours..i still think i need more discipline!! The mood isn't quite what i want it to be YET. And i'll continue to watch your sb, so i'll tell you my opinion about your colour choices if you want

    About the brush...i'll do that!But what did you mean by And with those digis, what dose digis mean?

    HANDS! Yes...will do sir!!
    And ave a nice day~

    Puppet-Thank you! I am most proud of my colour choices. Some by their anatomy..some by perspective or poses..me? colours so far
    And thank you for reading that information about me! I will try to find a way to do both!

    Thanks for dropping by~

    @____@ 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.

    Shalite -Thanks! Thanks a lot! ^^ And you're so right!! I feel more free working digitally, plus it's so much cheaper, not to mention the ctrl alt z option

    hehe about the hands...you're so right :3 only better...until you have a bad day LOL
    and everyone who commented so far proposed that so i'll definitely try more opaque

    More studies.

    These are made after real life objects and a book. I looked in the book and at online photos for the "pose" but i poked the real thing and turned it on all the faces too. Regarding the big seashell..yep, that one too! i have one on my desk..

    and the plants on the right...from the garden, but at one point i stopped looking at the ref and went wild
