Hello, I'm new to art and Conceptart.org. (I have a Deviantart as WestwallSpring) It would be very nice if you kind sirs give me advice for my pictures so that I may sharpen my skills.
I'm using GIMP, and some people have told me the brush is too vague, and not sharp enough. This seems to be so, should I keep it or remedy it? If the latter, how would I go about doing so? Also I do need to learn more shading/proportion.
I try to do this by scanning in a rough sketch, import the image to GIMP, remove white, and make it semi-transparent and paint under it in GIMP (of course the sketch is removed once its finished).

I will say this in advance, but thank you very much for your time.
