Hy everyone my name is Matija Vuk and I'll start my sketchbook here.
Please if there is some more appropriate place for introduction let me know
I'll place here all my previous traditional and some of the digital work I've done.
From now on I have decided not to do any traditional work anymore so I can focus just on digital art in fields of fantasy and females.
(I've got my Wacom Intuos 4 Medium tablet 2 days ago )
Please, let me know what you think of my work, criticize me as much as you want and if you are willing, help me to find more and more tutorials/guides to become outstanding digital artist in Photoshop (fantasy, female, landmark, creatures theme) .
Tnx everyone in advance for coming here on my pages

you´ve got good ideas but you should study anatomy and the facial structure, it will help you to improve! keep up
Good start. Assuming you did these pieces from mind, you have quite an imaginative mind, like sarbro said, I think you should study anatomy and the facial structure to bring a better sense of realism to your art. Post some more stuff.
Tnx, I've always believed in my imagination, I just have to master my tehnique
some of those work is 2 years old or more.. but anyway, I did not improve anatomy much.
I do agree, I'll study anatomy, facial structure, shadows & light.
But I'll try to do that parallel with studying photoshop painting where you do not rely on lines that much but more on colors
I'd like to get some guides from you people, I'm pretty confused in all this vastness IMO, I'ts much harder to be good artist than web programmer/designer
EDIT: I'll post 5 pics per post is that ok ? or it's a spam ?

I'm also new here but I think 5 images per post is alright.
And yeah, imo you need to get a nicer grasp of anatomy before anything else, and I dont think studying how to colour in photoshop will help much your drawings in general, but of course its nice to learn stuff!
Looking good for past work. As has been mentioned, it's probably time to start doing some anatomy studies! As you mentioned you like to draw females (and from just looking at the vast number of them here!) I would suggest looking into breast structure for sure, that is what seems glaringly wrong to me on all of them.

Anyway, good luck!
Alright, /i think first you should keep in traditional media, get a grasp of anatomy and lighting then move onto digital.
That's quite a good site for pose references. I try to sketch them and get down the shadows roughly, it helps
Sometimes I also use: http://www.supermodels.nl/
For faces. I've never studied Hogarth (or whoever it is) but use books of real people.
If you can get life drawing classes, I'd take them. They're very useful.
Maybe work in just pencil for now, getting down the core shadowsd and such. Hope it helps, good luck!
So here i am! :]
You definitely have the will to do it, that's most important.
Now the thing that you should do now is to leave those noodling and doodling, and get serious about studies, it's crucial to first know how things look like and work in reality, before you'll start to modify it. Study hard get Bridgemans and Bammes books for anatomy, get some good lectures on perspecive and color theory ( gnomon's video tut is awesome) And after that its rinse and repeat for few years until you'll be able to fully express yourself. But also keep in mind what papa Mullins said, break the pipeline and experiment, otherwise it can kill your creativity and when that will happen you're dead as an artist :0
I don't have much skills in character design, but maybe you should study anatomy. But overall ideas is good. I can say that having a lot of interesting ideas would be a blessing for me, and you already have it =)
