    Keep drawing allot! You have a nice start to find this site at your age. Do you know this tutorial? It haves some great information: http://www.itchstudios.com/psg/art_tut.htm

    If I was you I should start with doing more figure drawing. Keep it simple so you can make allot of sketches.

    sorry for not post something, i hadnt much time the last few weeks.
    yesterday i decided to draw at least one sketch every day for practise


    some questions:
    everytime i draw i have cool ideas in my mind, but i cant bring it on paper that good.
    hardest part is blending, i dont know how to do it well...it looks like crap every time

    furthermore i dont know wich brushsetting is useful for that kind of stuff...standart or other dynamics?
    and wich brushsetting did for example tbaldree used for his sketch at this thread: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=219914
    post #17


    i hope you can understand what i mean.
    maybe my english becomes better through this thread too


    first drawing, study of some animals:

    wanted to join the cow challange (design a fire,water,earth,life or death mage)
    but i noticed that my pc is lagging as hell if i draw with a bigger pencil like the small one im sketching with.

    very nice cow, im sad about the fact that i cant finish my drawing at the moment.

    btw i do NOT expect to win or something, i only do it because its fun


    here is the beginning: (he will not remain naked )

    Huh, I like all the monsters! I think you need to try and start out with pure color/larger brushes first and block out the shapes because it looks like you sketch a lot. Keep improving!

    thx for comment, any critique helps a lot!

    yea i dont know how to color..on the dragon (new version attached) i drawn the silhouette in blue first (one color) then i was blocking in various blue tones with a small brush. (setting: other dynamics.)

    hard to discribe with my terrible englisch


    im not very happy with my dragon and dont think i can finish him to the day after tomorrow

    that doesnt mean im not motivated to draw, i did a few thumbnails (is it called thumbnails or sketches?) instead

    Hey man I though I take a quick look since no one else seems to take some time to look at your stuff.

    Keep the studies going man, you have my support!

    Hi Highland3r! Nice start to your portfolio! I notice that you sketch in quite a free, almost scratchy, style. Maybe you could practice line drawing with a marker - trying to draw an edge or outline in only one stroke. It forces you to really think about where you're putting the line and where it's going. Maybe at first most of these line drawings will look terrible because you put the lines in the wrong place and have to redraw them but it makes you really observe the subject.

    Anyway, good luck with your sketchbook!!

    Yeah, your digital stuff startet to get better already =) It's a hard way in the beginning and it take some time until digital painting will be good, but I'm sure you can manage it. I've started with a Wacom Bamboo too 2 years ago (but a white one, the new generation is better), so I remember very good how my first real digital paintings looked like XD

    You need to get used of painting with big brushstrokes and working with planes instead of lines. Try to find out where's the difference between drawing and painting. That will help a lot. Do everything. Sketch traditional, work on the basics and make some digital paintings and studies.

    Maybe you can look at some tutorial. If you keep your eyes open, you will find a whole bunch of tutorial websites.
    Here a just some of them for the beginning ( I dunno what's really interesting for you at moment):

    Hi, I will say just a few things, I think you are in the period where you should experiment and try out things and I never was the type who expected from beginners doing things the right way from the start. It's impossible, I think, we need learn using our not so great approach and we are different anyway. But I shouldn't wondering here too much.

    Your referenced heads are often not in the same angle as the original. Try to focus on it a little better, I'd draw an ellipse with two curves as a guideline.
    The blending study on the girl: what about your light source? Brightly lit areas seem to be quite random. No matter how good colors and linework/silhuette and details you have, if the light/values are off, it won't be good. Try to think about form and light...

    You should do some anatomy studies, or at least focus on proportions, flow, gesture of human bodies... You spend time on digital paintings, blending, coloring but you need a deeper understanding of human body, even at stickman level. Focus on the basics, they are the most important.

    (It would be great if I follow my own advices instead of being lazy... Oh yeah, practice a lot, maybe that's the most important thing)

    Good luck
