    GoddessVirage - The Quest to Learn how to Digitally Paint & Other Scary Stories

    I'm one of those people who is the last to jump on every bandwagon- I was using my CD player while everyone else had moved onto ipods until I got one as a gift and of course, never looked back. I was an advocate for printed books until someone gave me a Kindle and I realized I had ever book under the sun right at my fingertips via the internet... And lastly, I painted traditionally for eeeever until I realized that if I really wanted to get an industry job I needed to learn how to digitally paint.

    I took a digitally painting workshop in college but I didn't take it very seriously and didn't enjoy painting in photoshop all that much, so I never really invested the time into it.

    SO- that is where I am today!

    I would love links to ANY tutorials that you guys think are amazing. I've had a hard time finding any really good ones that focus on environments and honestly that's where my largest lack of experience is.

    First digital piece, 'Lazerus', I finished the beginning of December. The second 'Esia' I finished just a week or so ago. The third is a WIP crop, it's my boyfriend's Warlock character, Constane, from World of Warcraft with her Felguard.

    The other sketches are just random ones from through this year...

    Hey there! You've got some awesome work! I can tell that you definitely spend a lot of time on each one. I've recently started doing painting studies again and I've found just painting from life or film stills teaches a lot. C:

    I like this part of your introduction:
    I'm one of those people who is the last to jump on every bandwagon- I was using my CD player while everyone else had moved onto ipods until I got one as a gift and of course, never looked back. I was an advocate for printed books until someone gave me a Kindle and I realized I had ever book under the sun right at my fingertips via the internet...
    For some useful links, visit the very first post in my sketchbook thread.
    You have some nice drawings in here.

    Yes! If this is your jump to digital, it's been a giant leap. Your drawing style is nicely solid, and quite unique. I suppose if I was to point you in any direction, you could try selecting your linework and colouring it as well, for instance, making the outline of a green space a darker green than it's contents, just blending your linework into the colour. I think it would work really well with your pieces.

    Keep up the good work!

    Just another digital piece - a Tiefling Ardent I created for a D&D campaign! Her name is Devi Naash- obviously.

    I have a ton of sketchbook sketches that I just need to scan, so just a small update for now
