Well, after looking at everyone's awesome work in the medium I finally decided to take the plunge into digital art myself. Thanks to reading a lot of good advice here (I'm a big lurker) and some tutorials, I have learned a lot in only a few months. Please check out my work and,as always, criticism is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for replying! I generally like to draw with a ball point pen on paper when concepting something, as I think pen can actually define things a bit better than a pencil sketch. When I scan the art I usually just paint over it in Photoshop using multiply.
Thank you very much guys! I do feel as though I have more control with hand drawn art, but that might change as I continue to get used to doing digital work. I have used a tablet and a mouse to create concept art before:
I live in Northolt in Central London when I'm not at uni! :D

That looks great!!
Everyones the same at first. It takes an age to get used to it (Apparantly, I'm still not used to it entirely!)
I do this akward head tilt thing, looking at the screen, cos I can't get used to not looking down while I'm drawing!
lol! I do the same thing! Some of my earliest CG work came out extremely awkward. I actually revisted my first attempt at a human face and attempted to 'modernize' it with what I know now. The result is still somewhat awkward thanks to my attempt to preserve the features.
One thing I do pretty much constantly is 'doodle' in some of the notebooks I carry around with me. The concept art is of course hit or miss, but it allows me to quickly recall any concept that interested me, especially when it comes to creature designs.
