    New to Digital Concept Art Need help

    Hey people of CA, So I have always drawn on sketchbooks and made a lot of concept art, I recently decided I wanted to get into Visual Development and actually work hard and learn. I bought a Wacom Bamboo Splash Graphics tablet (first ever) and wow is it different than drawing on a piece of paper.

    So i need CAs help! Please dont be harsh, this is my first digital art and it is a WIP. I am posting it here to ask for advice. I need to figure out how to make the Gold, Bronze, Iron, and silver look metalish. And the purple look Laserish, Does anyone have links to tutorials on painting? I need some on metalish painting and lasers scifi themes. So here is my work in progress. Thanks for future help!

    Hi, welcome to I don't mean to be a dick, but you can find all sorts of awesome tutorials in Tutorial section. I can give you only one advice. Start learning about fundamentals of art. Light, anatomy, perspective, value etc. You can find many usefull resources around here. Simply look for it. Make a thread in sketchbook section and update it with your studies and work you're doing. So you can get some feedback. Learning art is looooooong and though journey. So start right now. Wish you luck. Cheers

    Hello greatsword and welcome to the forum!

    Ramalooke already covered most of the stuff that you need to know for now.

    Here are also some links that you might find useful.
    An introduction on where and how to show your work on CA
    as well as
    Becoming a better artist, finding inspiration, activities in the forum and more.

    Starting a sketchbook and posting your work in the critique section is probably the best to do at your skill level.

    Keep it up!
