    Digital Disastors

    Im 17 and four months ago i made a goal to draw at least three hours a day. So far im staying consistent but the thing is when you dont have eyes pointing out just how retarded some of your artwork ends up being, its hard to keep from getting lazy. In this fifth month though im going to focus primarily on digital becase frankly, i have copious amounts of noobness. So yea hope you enjoy i plan on updating with at least two paintings a day. Crits and comments greatly appreciated.

    good to see you want to push yourself, remember when you start digital painting the soft bursh in photoshop is not your friend, it makes everything look blotchy and muddy, its better to learn to used the basic hard round brush with pressure sensitivity on opacity.

    try it!

    Hi there,

    Nice start so far. I agree with stormrider85 on the PhotoShop soft brush comment. It's best to stear clear especially when creating the 'outlines' for your work, perhaps stick to the softer brushes when shading in shadows and highlights. Also sometimes your colours are looking way to 'harsh'. Are you mainly using the colours provided in the pallette? Try using those and then tweaking the colours by adjusting the sliders so that you get a much wider colour palette going on. Try to stay away from 100% opacity too and use softer and lighter colours that have some translucency to them.

    yea i did others other paintings today but this was the only one worth posting.

    i tried both using less gaudy colors as well as strickly hardbrush with only modifications to opacity and i think i like ti alot better


    like you guys said it does make the object look less muddy thanks for the important tip really aprreaciate =D

    Hey man, you've got a good start! My suggestion would be to do a lot of anatomy studies to help you understand the figure better. Do CRAZY AMOUNTS of it too. You'll definitely see progression in your work in no time if you do this

    Good to see you drawing some anatomy, keep doing this as much as possible! You can finds tons of nice references either online or at the libary - also Amazon have some great books available that aren't too expensive if you want to buy some!

    I'm liking the Octopus under the ocean painting you've done. It would be nice to see you 'layer' this up even more. The lighting looks good on it so far. It's good that you're using the harder brushes more now but some of these paintings still look rather, 'fuzzy'.

    I guess the only way I can describe it is that they look like my paintings before I've added a load more layers on top to build up detail in the image. This is what you need to start doing now. I would take one of your paintings that you have enjoyed working on and put some proper time into getting it looking a nice as possible.

    The more layers you add, the more feeling and depth to the piece you will create. To create nice details try zooming in on certain areas of the drawing and using smaller and finer tipped brushes. Then when you zoom back out you will see what a difference it makes!

    Good luck and keep drawing.

    Your stuff is sweet lol, only thing I would say is work on your faces, because they aren't as good as your bodies. also it would be nice to see people that don't look like they hit the gym for like 5 hours a day lol. Try more slender people

    my friends don't really do fun things its more like we bring the fun to us. So really we could have a good time just talking for like 5 hours and it would be fun every second of that time. or we go out and look for stuff around where we live that we haven't seen because, hidden places lol

    Those environment paintings are great! Definitely work more from reference. It may be best for you to concentrate on traditional work before really moving into digital, especially when it comes to anatomy.

    Nice work so far. Your faces still need more work, it is obvious you are more comfortable with the body. Earlier someone suggested taking a piece and really polishing it and I agree with that. Photoshop has a great feature where you can open up a second window to mirror the working one so when zoomed in you can still have a small version so you can see the results from far away. Sort of like the navigator but better because you can paint on the second version as well.

    Your enviros are coming along nicely.

    A lot of digital work here. My few suggestions is to do some quick studies from life as well and to tighten up your brush strokes on areas you want to viewers to focus on. Right now the painting have almost equal edges and strokes, but it might be just style. Keep going!

    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!
