    OK here goes:

    I'm just getting to grips with using the wacom tablet as a sketching tool rather than drawing in pencil first and scanning it in. So the first image is a hand I drew at the end of my lunch break.

    The second is a portrait painted from a photograph. Note I painted from the printed photo rather than a scan or a digital.

    I've learned not to rely too much on outline and to watch my attention to form. The last was more an experiment in working with different brushes and an attempt at speed painting.

    Roll on the advice.

    This is my daily sketch from last night. It's from Bumskee's digital painting thread here at CA. Tonight I think I'll follow up with the onions.

    Hey!
    so you got a tablet recently then? I would actually advice that you draw constantly and as often as you can on paper as well. It's a skill that will serve you well!

    apple looks great, i actually saw it earlier. I think you could lose some of the details and could help with some simplified strokes, but otherwise, nice!

    keep it up!

    cheers,

    Actually I've had the tablet a while but I rarely use it except for creating textures.

    Good advice on the apple, I still haven't figured out how to use the "other" two brushes you supplied on your tutorial. Possibly when I experiment with them I'll get smoother blending and less fussy work over all.

    In regards to sketching, I'm doing that every day too and once a week (Wednesday nights) I organise a life drawing class in work. I'll post up some paper sketches on Thursday I think.

    Thanks for the crit.

    These are some life drawings from last month. I'll be posting sketches like these once a week.

    On this evening I had forgotten my pencils so I had to resort to pen. it's a nice alternative as it forces you to be careful with your line choices and observe more effectively.

    Crits welcome as usual.

    Cameli: You're my first unprovoked comment. Congratulations and thanks! I'll keep everything coming as much as I can and I promise I'll give you a crit sometime tomorrow.

    Ok in other news: I tried the daily sketch but I missed the deadline and although it was supposed to be a reptile I thought an amphibian would be more fun. It's still a work in progress but I'm too tired right now to finish it off. Expect an update during the week.

    Really lovely work. There's so much energy in your work. Going to take up your lead and try to draw something everyday. I know it's the only way to improve, and you've inspired me to go for it. Thankyou!

    God I love your life drawings! Thats the kind of thing I'd love to be able to do some day; accurate studies but still with this amazing stylised energetic feel!

    Go you! and Keep practicing!

    Katie
