    Red face Noses

    This is my first digital painting ever. It was done in Painter 12 and took about 3 hrs. The middle nose was the 3rd attempt at realism. I'm still learning to paint with my tablet and how to use the program as well. No references were used, although it would have helped much to do so.

    Any helpful critiques would be appreciated. Thank you

    ...Why didn't you use references? That's basically the best advice to be given here, use references.

    I think you should just draw with pencil on paper for a while. Rushing into color painting in a difficult medium like this, you aren't making your job easier.

    If you actually do go back to pencil and paper, even temporarily (I'd recommend it), you might take a look at this page for another approach to noses. The more approaches to a subject you can take in, the better off you'll be overall.
