    Welcome!

    Good start. The rendering of the first figure is quite good. And I like the subject, heh.

    You can post more now. This place is indeed very good for critiques and general motivation.

    Ack, I havent been uploading in 4 months... I'm always too lazy to scan my art, and my scanner always mutilates it.

    Here's a self-portrait I drew today... I spent a bit under 2 hours on it.

    very good! the translucency of the tea (?) is there.
    brushes are of secondary importance (for now) - a simple hard-edged round/ellipse set to "pressure dynamics" (or something) will do.

    I haven't logged on in over a year D:
    Oh well. Here's 2 paintings I've done lately:

    Canis - oils, 2x3feet, took I don't even know how long,
    and a selfie needed for an art class project. (acrylic, 13x19 inches)

    @Jacobvs: No, I used a dark pencil, then my scanner made it look weird D:
    @krysjez: yeah, the brush I used was way too soft. I gotta get used to digital some more...

    Fokken Prawns!

    Good start, especially the oil dogfight. Look forward to seeing more. Keep working!

    @The_Flying_Dutchman - thanks!
    Oil is great to work with, but such a huge hassle to clean up... I probably spent half my time setting up and cleaning, and the other half actually painting XD
