    Sketchbook

    Hey folks!

    Found CA a while back and I am finally getting around to putting up my sketchbook. I just want to say that I've been away from art for way too long and it took finding this site and seeing all the amazing talent here to inspire me to start practicing again and eventually become a great artist. The wealth of information I've picked up just in the past few days digging around the site is insane. Until recently I have just sketched with a ball-point pen, so I never worked with color that much, as you can see, but I now have a wacom and really want to learn digital painting. Some of these were done with a mouse before I got my tablet. I know I need a lot of work on anatomy and composition. I welcome any comments and critiques, I will be a regular on this site from here on out.

    This is two firsts since I got my tablet: first time I made a random scribble and fleshed out what I saw, and first time I tried to color a black and white image. I could use some advice on coloring over a black and white image, was a lot harder than I thought it would be.

    Planning on coloring this later tonight, if anyone has some advice on coloring a b&w image in PS, or a link to a tutorial I could use it.

    I love last couple of pieces in your first post. Those definitely stand out as far as character concepts. Your work on the tablet looks great too, but I really can't offer much advice on coloring b&w images in PS... I'm a big PS noob myself. I'm sure you could probably find some sort of tutorial on the internet that could be helpful though. Great SB though, keep it up.

    Hey thanks nurraymjo! I'll dig around and see what I can find. I'll be posting a colored version of the werewolf pic later.

    Here is a colored version of the previous pick. Tried using overlay layers to colorize, then touched up over that. It looks a bit darker in jpeg format for some reason, but ah well.. Comments welcome!

    Great start. If I might make a suggestion, try putting more contrast into your paintings.
    Keep working at it.

    Hey thanks for the suggestion MassDet, I had a friend mention something similar to me today. I will start working on that and see how it goes.

    Thanks NickTrip! I've just recently begun practicing digital art, but I'm trying to get to the point that I am comfortable with it.
