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 CA.org. 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
