After years of lurking around on these forums and not doing any digital painting, I figured I should start a sketchbook to kick start my painting habits. So, I hope to do at least one digital painting a day (even if it takes just an hour, like this first one), and build on my skills in the medium. I appreciate all tips and all criticism, no matter how harsh or negative. If you can make any sort of comment to help me learn and build, I much prefer that over "I like it". Unfortunately, I hear too much of that at school critiques. Surely, if you do like it, there's a reason. Type that up too
I'm a second year art student at The University of Texas, and I find digital painting to be significantly more difficult than traditional mediums. I don't know why, but I feel like I have more control over my marks in a traditional environment, however, I want to learn to paint digitally, as I find the fields it's marketable in to be more interesting than most traditional fields (we can argue about the studio world later).
Meh, only 30 minutes to paint today, but after finals, it was nice to be able to do something.

keep working!! for me digital is way more easy than traditional!
I've never really touched traditional materials except for graphite and a little charcoal but when you get the hang of things you'll be makin kickass artwork in no time.
Painting of a sculpture of half a head screaming. I did it in sculpting clay, and then "cast" it in news paper. I'll put a few photos up when I have a chance.
