    A warm Welcome to CA my friend, anyways... i think that's very nice for being your second attempt at digital drawing/painting, and that's great... the bamboo its ideal for starters so there's nothing wrong with that, post more so we can give more feedback..! and, again, Welcome to the forums

    Welcome to CA!

    Don't worry, I started with a shitty TRUST tablet, which broke after several months of use. A bamboo is great and reliable tablet!

    My advice is to do a couple of still life studies to learn and practice proper lightings. And studying human anatomy as well. So you get used to decent proportions on your own images!
    Also, when you're painting illustrations or concepts, think about focal points. Right now I can't decide where to look first on your girl with the sword. At human drawings, the main focal point is the face and face alone. The rest are all secondary.

    Anyways, keep on posting and practicing!

    Welcome to CA!

    Whenever you are drawing a standing figure, try to plant the feet on the ground plain, this with really help create a sense of perspective even for a quick sketch.

    Astonishing how the subconscious mind makes you create stuff that reflects the mindstate you are trying to achieve, when you´re not really thinking much about what you´re actually drawing.

    This is a good start to a SB, and even just a few post I can see an improvement between the first and last pieces you've put up. Keep it up!

    I loved the piece in #23 and #24, it shows great improvement and it's an awesome first try! I would prefer the earlier version though, because the background has more texture, which gives the piece more depth. I also like the color palette of the first better, but I guess that's just a personal preference.
    And I noticed that you're characters look easy to push over. You should pay attention not to make their feet too small.
    Keep it up, Ilook forward to more from you!

    I also have a Sketchblog/ now, where I do my stuff. Check it out~
