    I think you should focus on the graphite/traditionnal step of the drawing before coloring it. It's very important to have the base right, and then color ^^ because your paintings look a bit too sketchy, too blurry, they would need more details, more research.

    Keep training it's the key! you'll improve ^^

    I am only recently starting drawing and some of the advice I kept hearing from others is that you should always start with careful studies so you can get perspective and proportions right. Also use hard colors and build on top of them.

    Some good places to learn about the basics are either the loomis books or alienthink

    Good luck and keep practicing.

    I will agree with Evolvana. Try to work with just studying values first. that means working with just black and whites in photoshop. that way you can work without having to worry about color and values at the same time you know. its very important, bc if your values are right, it doesnt really matter what colors you lay down on top of them. even a lot of pros i study always do value before color.

    some people can do it all at the same time, but for beginning, it is especially great to do values. so if youre referencing a photo to paint, turn it to B&W and try to work with it like that. then add colors. hope this helps!

    cheers mate

    my subconscious does not stop begging my conscious to draw.
    hmm does that mean im a slave to my subconscious?
    at least it doesnt beg for crack. ha.
