    Hi everyone
    I produced the image above (not too proud of it)

    anyway just wondering if anyone could offer some help specifically with the painting and the steps from black and white to overlaying colour because im currently working by creating a gray canvas and painting over it using 50% opacity black or dark grey and then make a new layer for colour and set it to overlay and then paint on that layer with colour.

    I got the idea from this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQVWguBfv10

    anyway is their anyway i can improve in the painting and also my proportions

    You should give your base drawing a little more attention first. It isn't terrible, but you haven't thought through the underlying bones well enough. So, for example, her head is tilted way beyond what she could do without breaking her neck.

    It's digital, so what the heck? Throw a new layer on top and see if you can't draw a very simplified outline of her ribcage, her pelvis, the main bones. Just a cube for the ribs and pelvis and skull and lines for the bones. What you're trying to do at this stage is make sure all your proportions are right on and she's symmetrical.

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    Well, if you're following a specific tutorial, I can't comment on that. In general, though, you want to work with opaque brushes, particularly at the beginning of a painting, and large ones. You can use smaller and less opaque brushes as you finish. Though I have experimented with working black and white and then coloring it on a layer, it's not the most congenial way to get vivid color.

    This is the thread I always point people to for digital painting. Don't bother with the text at first, just go look at the pictures and the working stages.
