    .Orphic's sketchbook

    heyo!

    17 year old artist here, just got myself my first pen tablet(Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch) and im loving it and diving into the world of digital art. This shit is hard as hell just figuring out comfortable brush settings was beyond frustrating. Thank god for sites like Ctrl paint and Conceptart.

    Here's a couple stuff I've did since I got the tablet a couple days ago.
    the elf man thing was cool and i kept thinking something was missing so i just used a bunch of random brushes all over i and then I realized what was originally missing, the highlights!o well. Didn't really render the ear either

    you can check outlarger versions of everything i post at my Deviantart : mysticwhip.deviantart.com

    the first pic is the thumbnail pic, the other two were the first pics i posted.

    Not as bad as you might think. Looks like a good start to me. The proportions look dead on in that last painting.

    Nice work thus far,that last sketch page was especially fun. I would be interested to see some traditional pencil+paper work from you. Helps give a better idea of what your strong points are without the magical digital undo option.

    keep it up!

    Jonathan L.- thx
    AustenFM- thanks, i only have one physical sketchbook since I had to dump the others and that's in pretty rough shape, spilled paint all over it. It's also kinda hard for me to get my hand on materials so most of the shit I post will probably be digital.


    anyway, I figured I was approaching learning how to paint all wrong, I thought I could wing it but now I realize i'm gonna have to learn it the same way I learned how to draw, by drawing tons of shit so imma start painting a bunch of shit. Here's my first really study I guess.

    BTW,how do I change my thread thumbnail?

    To change the thread thumbnail, you have to change the pictures attached to your first post, I think its the first pic you have attached is the one that shows up.

    Anyway, good start man, the colours on those eyes look expecially nice. Keep studying dude, maybe check out loomis and bridgman, you know the old standards.

    still learning, can anyone tell me their techniques to blend colors/shades? you know, how to make the stuff smoother.

    these were done pretty quickly though.

    wow nice work so far! you don't need to blend colours, i like how you clean block in colours in post #9! (blending colours basically with lower pen pressure! (::
    keep on updating, looking forward to them!

    Psychobuddy-Thanks
    Nianto- Thank, but I'm not sure how I use the pen pressure to blend.

    another study I guess, still looks like shit.

    These videos explain blending and how pen pressure affects opacity in PS pretty well.

    Btw, great start ! The first piece is promising.
