    I have started reading one of loomis books online and I have also bought two Bridgeman books. I started to study perspective a week ago. Thanks for commenting!

    Can anyone give me a tip for where I can study on the internet. I know I have to draw from life but it would be good if i could also study on the internet.

    Good start, post some of those perspective studies you said you started. As for online learning, try some of conceptart.org's classes. They have a ton and you get a lot of information for your money, they helped me a lot with things like color and idea generating. If your looking for free advice the best you can get is right here in the sketchbook section. Look through other peoples sketchbooks and see what other people are telling them about their work. It really helps me to see what others do right and wrong so I can use that for my work.

    I dont have a scanner so I cant put anything traditional uo unless i use a digital camera. But maybe that works or is the quality going to be to crappy?

    yeah a scanner would help a lot. I personally like to draw out my paintings then go into photoshop over top the drawing. Also it would let you update your sketchbook more often with your studies, and I think you can learn more about someones work through there studies then the final. You can get an all in one printer with a scanner for pretty cheap these days.

    Tell me about it, try to do longer strokes or zoom out and make stroke, it helps sometimes. It need a practice to have a nice strokes with tablet. just practice, practice, practice
    Try first some straight strokes on paper, than some oval strokes. THEN try the same thing on tablet
    Peace and love guys

    I dont really know what this is supposed to be. Its a man. Perhaps he is crawling up from the ground. I was trying tp play around with sketching with a big brush and it was also a bit of a value study.

    You've got to get a wider range of value into your work to show form more convincingly, I've attached a quick paint-over of the swampy tribesman to show what I'm talking about. Hopefully you can read my crappy handwriting, in a nutshell make your shadows darker and more saturated, and highlights lighter.

    Best way to get a handle on value is to take colour out of the mix and work in black & white.

    As to the shaky lines, try working in a larger document size. Some shakiness is unavoidable on tablets, it's a limitation of pen tracking or some such. It's why a lot of digital artists work at 2-3x final size. Otherwise just practice making lines with single, long, quick strokes and that should reduce the shaky.

    You've made a good start, I quite like the snow heron, just keep hammering away at your weaknesses, while identifying and enjoying your strengths and you'll be away laughing.

    I got me a sketchbook...
    Slow, yet hopefully steady, improvement. This way
