    Digital Painting - From the beginning till yet + pencil sketches

    Hey guys!

    My name is Gangl Simon and Im from Austria.
    I love drawing very much till my birth. (I hope I make not to many mistakes in the english language, I pfrefer german )

    yeah, I started digital painting in fall 2008. What I really like at digital painting is the high posibility, what u can do, but I also know, that there are much more deatails and helps to make good pictures...
    Maybe some of u can give me some useful tools or sth else...

    greez Simon

    Hello Gangl, you have some good ideas here...

    I think you should develop some skills about tools usage, and about some painting techiniques.... in my case, sometimes I make the paintings manually before going digitally...

    keep going

    Hello,

    You have some good ideas in your sketch, I think you should practice rendering effects and some techiniques for digital painting....

    See you and best regards,

    thank your pauloricardo for your comment!
    The last few images are more or less "speedpaintings" and it wasn´t important for me to draw exactly... only how the colours worked together and if you can feel the mood in that painting (the icy mountain, the black castle on the cliffs, the desert with the karawane)

    but I will try getting better
    So I started here to get some feedback and useful advices thank you!!!

    MarcSampson: hey endlich mal wer aus der Umgebung! ^^ Mit dem English komm ich auch nicht immer so klar
    Ich komm aus Oberösterreich (Wels). Dir bekannt? Und du? Wie lange bist du schon hier dabei?

    Zu den Bildern: die sind meiner Meinung nach schon alt! Ich arbeite seit gut zwei Jahren auf dem Grafiktablett und hab mir mehr oder weniger alles selbst beigebracht!
    Ich versuche immer verschiedene Techniken aus um zu dem Ergebnis zu kommen (und zu diesem Zeitpunkt hab ich noch nicht gewusst, dass man ein Bild auch zuerst in Graustufen anfangen kann!)
    Ich habe noch einige Bilder zum uploaden...

    greez Simon

    Hi! If you want people to visit your sketchbook,
    make these files you upload as small as possible.
    The best would be if they would be jpg
    with 200kb at most.

    About the works I can say that you have quite
    some imagination, just work a bit more on rendering,
    natural colors (by studying from nature) and you'll
    improve even quicker.

    hey simon,

    zuerst mal, Du hast gute und kreative Ideen hier in Deinem Sketchbook. Es ist immer gut, viele Dinge zu machen und auszuprobieren. Allerdings solltest Du Dich auch ganz viel mit Anatomie beschäftigen. Da hast Du noch so manches Problem...
    Zeichne immer wieder Dinge aus dem Leben und aus der Natur. Ich finde, das beste Bild hier in Deinem Thread, ist das Portrait Deiner Großmutter. Genau in diese Richtung solltest Du immer wieder gehen. Es ist sehr lebendig und von der Technik her bist Du da am weitesten und am besten.
    Versuche, Dir viele Künstler anzusehen und zu studieren. Arbeite auch immer wieder mal nach Photoreferenzen und am ehesten halt nach dem Leben. Zeichne die Menschen um Dich herum, gehe mal in den Zoo und versuche dort Tiere zu zeichnen. Solche Dinge können Dich dann schnell weiter bringen!

    Mach weiter so, zeichne zeichne zeichne, alles andere kommt dann irgendwann von allein.

    Viele Grüße,
    Rebecca

    Thank you for your comments!
    @ matejkovacic: okay! I will try to change the size of the pictures in future. I have to do an update soon. So I can use your advice in practice

    hm... I will try to improve my rendering skills in future Since I'm not in a school where I learn the proper use of digital drawing, I have to develop everything myselves, and collect technical knowledge.

    @ InFlame: Ich danke dir recht herzlich ! Tja, wie schon gesagt, bin ich sowieso in einer ständigen Lernphase von digitalem Zeichnen. Anatomy wird wohl wirklich dringend notwendig werden in kommender Zeit. Ich habe sowieso vor mehr Portraits zu malen, auch wenn das mir nicht so Spaß macht, wie andere Sachen ^^
    Bei dem Portrait von meiner Oma habe ich schon eine Foto-Referenz verwendet.
    Das mit dem Zooo und den Tieren usw. gefällt mir und werde ich in Zukunft ausprobieren Danke für deinen Ratschlag! Ist mir sehr wichtig auch auf Deutsch (sooo gut bin ich im Englischen dann auch wieder nicht ) ein Feedback zu bekommen!

    @ Thank you very much, raminafshari!

    Some brilliant progression here, Maybe a look at anatomy, and how to construct the shape of the body, for the land scape's, the snow one is brilliant, take a look at how to construct them as well.

    Keep going.

    I like your sketches. That's a great sketch for someone starting so early.

    I also noticed your anatomy knowledge are improving a lot. That's great!
    I especially love your copy of the church photo. That's so detailed -- how did you do that?

    Keep drawing!

    I know, I shouldn´t do that, but I tried this the first time: I take the photo, put a layer above it and start drawing... I used the colours and the construction of the painting...

    I tested that kind of drawing, and that is it. I doesn´t want to do that again on this way!
