    Queen Worm needs help!

    After seeing so many beautiful art works, it really needs courage for me to apply for a sketch book. I am pretty new here, hope could learn from your critiques.
    I am a media design student in age 20. Because I don't have a solid understanding of traditonal art, I am not good at coloring,,, Pencil Sketching is ok I guess,,,
    I just started my digital painting recently. It was fun but difficult in some aspect,,,really need more practice,,,I hope I could update often and learning from you guys' masterpieces!!
    Here are some pictures I am working on recently.

    Sorry for bad English,,,and thanks for your critiques!!

    Face coloring and practice again~ 3 hours painting (pretty slow).
    Hope someone could give me some suggestions on coloring before
    I made any unreturnable mistake,,, I am lost to add light or
    atmosphere most of the time,,,

    I try to do some anotomy studies,,,I barrowed some books from
    the libaray but just do not know how to started. Should I just
    "REDRAW" the pictures on the books? Hope someone could give
    me some direction,,,

    Hi there! This sketchbook is a very good start.

    If you want to study anatomy, I suggest starting with Andrew Loomis books (they are available for free on the web). Read what he has to say and re-draw pictures from the book, keeping in mind what you learned from the text. It requires a lot of going back and forth. Draw, read, draw. But it pays off in the end :]

    As for life drawing, you can easily set up a still life and draw that Start with simple objects and move to more complex compositions. I can't give you much advice on drawing people from life because I'm too uncomfortable drawing them on the street or wherever x) If you have a big mirror, you can always draw yourself I guess.

    Good luck!~

    It just takes some time Queen, yes copy the drawings in the book and copy them over and over again Add some more contrast to your digital paintings, all the colors have a similar value and saturation. Do some still lifes and try to see whats going on with the colors.

    Your doing well keep it up.

    Donna-Thank you for your advices on anatomy studies and life drawing. I will check the book on the internet. I hope I can start this part as soon as possible though I am quite busy recently,,,draw, read, draw!!! Thanks again for comming!!

    Dy.laneA-Yes, just like what you said there is little saturation and contrast,,, I do need more time to do the investigation on others' art works and still life drawing. Photo drawing might be another issue for me,,,I will keep working on this picture to add more color and contrast as possible. Thanks!

    Thanks both of you, really learn some information!!

    I might try to tear this one apart into two doodles.
