Hello everyone. Few days ago i've bought my first tablet - Genius G-Pen M609. Of course, first of all I start to draw. It was very unusual for me after "paper and pencil".
So, here are my first works with tablet. I'll be very thankful for your critique!
Hehe! Rather unfair match-up at the bottom there.
I like your compositions, and loose quick shapes.
What software are you using? If you have PS or Painter, try and use some of the patterned brusshes or make your own. That way youŽll get interesting details into your quick scetches.
Yeah, really unfair conditions on the bottom pic)
Thanks for the tips, tonight will mess with the brush)
Realize that digital painting sometimes requires some "extra feats" in it. Your painting is working out decently, but EVERYTHING is soft. I hit it with the unsharp mask "filter" in Photoshop (I know, it's a filter, but it's nice to use).
You can then go back over it and finish out some of your softer edges.
Hmm, thank you for tip. yeah now i'm seeing that edges are soft. I'll be practicing on that.
Another friday evening pic. This time...
... Random Gladiator
It sometimes shocks me how quickly people can pick things up... but then, I seriously need to set some time aside to practice...
Anyways, liking them all, agreeing with the general consensus here, although, in fairness, that gladiator's looking pretty good even if the scenery isn't fully realised (as sandy as it is, you'd still have some details of the arena closer to the forefront, and always remember the distance-desaturation thing), and the unfair situation in that last pic on the first post made me think... hrm... Inquisition? not nice people who really give a monkeys about fairness?
But yeah, nice, quick progression, xCheshire, keep 'er up!

Thank you, Darkwolf, for your opinion, I appreciate it! About gladiator, when I saw this picture with fresh sight in the morning I have realized a lot of mistakes, so now i know over what I should work next. But thanks for kind words about this guy!
I have spent two evenings for this pic. This time I was trying to make everything better then on my previous arts.
Nice one. you keep improving. I like the effect of the two lightsources. I would suggest not using so much black in the shadow areas, and making more tonal and saturation differences between the character and the background.
Hey, thank you!
Good suggestion! I will try to use this tips in upcoming works!
Hello everyone. I finally finished a new picture! I've spent about 8 hours workin' on it. Yesterday was exactly two years since I met my girlfriend, Julia, so I decided to make her a unique gift and depict her in this role.
When I started work with this pic, I was strongly inspired by the works of Warhammer artists and of course Halo.
Photoshop + Tablet.
And my girlfriends photo, for example.
I've made this picture as a copy from illustration of the military-historical magazine by Osprey. Just wanted to raise my skill in drawing historical characters, detailing, etc.
Another remake. At this time, a French foreign legionnaire of the Second World War. Here Legionnaire in an unusual manner without a "Kepi blanc" as we are accustomed.
Lying at home with the temperature, rain and mud outside. Nothing better to do I've started to throw all sorts of shades and colors in Photoshop. The result has become this pic. So welcome to the mystical swamp!
Some downed tree branches or maybe some sort of swamp plant life could really spruce up the bottom left of this image. You're suffering from a real lack of a foreground and I think a simple silhouette there would really help to bring everything together.
Oh, thanks for this tip..
Impressed by stories of my father about Hindu Kush mountains, I began to draw mountains. But at some point I added my Medal of Honor 2010 impressions to the pic.
