    Firstly, welcome to CA. If it's improvement you're looking for, then you've come to the right place. Take it from a person who has learned almost every art skill from this forum. CA is practically the only art teacher I've had until now.

    Now, as far as the sketchbook is concerned, I think the first piece is head and shoulders above the rest of the work. Overall, I think, your line art reads better than your paints. I think, as most people here will tell you, you should study from life. There's nothing like drawing the apparent mundane. A solid base of real life drawing will set up the stage for wherever you may want to take your art later.

    Having said that, I hope you enjoy your stay here. It's a bit difficult to get comments before getting any stars, but I hope that will only make you want to improve even more. Just keep drawing, and updating. Best of luck.

    Thank you very much Vritra! I appreciate your comments a lot! I'm somewhat new to digital painting only having done it for a few pieces. Overall I am a line artist at heart.

    I will take your advice and definitely do more drawings of real life objects. I needto do some more light studies.

    Thanks again for the kind words and encouragement!

    Welcome to CA, Daniel.

    The first picture you've posted really grabbed my eye, there's something quirky about it that's interesting. Don't loose your style!

    Keep drawing and posting, look forward to more.

    I'm not an artist myself yet... and like you hoping to change career (SE to Artist).... and you stand a better chance than I do

    I really like your style and this is exactly what I'm aiming as well.

    Thanks HunterKiller! I try to maintain my style whenever possible. I am a big fan of heavy stylization. I think videogames and movies that have heavy stylized themes are the best! Think of Tim Burton's stuff, or games like Limbo or Borderlands.

    I will have to checkout your stuff Chris. Yeah switching careers can be a lot of work, but I figure it's better than doing back breaking work in a factory where they don't appreciate you and you struggle to pay your bills on top of it! I figure if I'm going to struggle it's going to be doing something I love. Art!
    I wish you the best of luck mate!

    Hello all! I am looking for some critiques and overall shading advice. I want this piece to really pop. I am not a strong shader but I would love to give this a really 3 dimensional feel.
    Thanks!!!!

    Here is the ZIM WIP. .......be gentle!

    Keep posting artwork and keep improving and the comments will come.

    Nice little bird sketch, keep crankin' em'!
    As for shading, there's no real 'trick' to it. That's something you have to learn to do through continued practice and observation, that's why studying from real life is so important.
    Do check out the tutorial section, lots of good introductions to shading there.
