Hey nice start
I would suggest starting with the basics such as getting a square or a sphere and drawing it with pencil or tablet for value and lighting practice, try doing as many shapes as possible to understand form better too.
I would suggest studying both environments and characters if your not sure right now what you want, start by doing anatomy studies picking books of Andrew Loomis and George bridgeman or hogarth, do lots of photo studies for environments.
You'll get better the more you practice, good luck
I second the loomis books! and starting with gesture drawings-- you're at a good start, just keep at it! i would say get good with a pencil before you go digital though. a lot of people make the mistake of going straight to digital and they never get the foundation of traditional media that they need.
I would have to agree
with Eroropia . fuck the tablet
take some paper and go out
just draw the thing u see then
take a few anatomy books and go
crazy with them. hell dude im working
as a concept artist now and i still didn't
change my old 30 $ tablet( not 300$XD)
so just practice practice every day
a mean oll the guys that made it are
going to tell u the same . start traditional
learn the basic and then go digital . and
yes PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE

thank you all for visiting my page
MrWhiskey and Erotopia's i dont let my pen and paper down , its strange i really love digital drawing but its very clear to me first i need to become good in pen and paper , acutely those books you told me are so hard for me to understand , my English is not that good , but i am working on some anatomy video tutorials acutely they are 10 anatomy DVD witch takes at list more than 400 days to understand anatomy and 200 days to become good at it . i am a little shy to show my pen and paper works , i dont now why , maybe later i put them in here after i become better . dear Danny_K i will take your advice and try more shapes and objects to draw and understand .
That's good to hear. Do not worry about being perfect, we are all here to learn, but please make sure that you also have fun drawing. Studies can become tedious if you let them. If you want to use your tablet as well, do. The best advice I can give is just experiment and see how things work - don't overdo the custom brushes. There are loads of tutorials on PhotoShop on Youtube if you need extra help.
