Well, happy to be here. Here I will post my stuff. I'm a pro in traditional art since 2006, but I've just bought my first wacom this month (October 2013), and I wanna get better in digital. So here I will post all the new stuff.

I'd be interested in seeing some of you traditional work aswell
As far as digital is concerned I think you'll find it difficult to use hatching or crosshatching to any great effect in digital. At least it won't be as useful as with a pencil. It's best to start getting used to using big brushes and big brushstrokes.

Let start with some fast skatches I made last week, with "The Great War" (by M. Monicelli, 1959) as reference. Just for exercise hand to the new medium and try some signs.
And this is another I made for a friend
@Jondawo - Thanx =)
You can find my traditional on my work site: www.lasalandra.net
About what you said, well, I feel confy and satisfied at the moment. Actually in drawing, my hatching is very similiar to what you see here (the b/w especially), strong and caotic. I didn't draw for years from when I paint for profession... In fact using big brushes is more fun, but I wanna buckle down on tiny gesture... We will see )=) I'll take a look to your stuff, I already saw a couple of you work for challanges and they were grand.

Well, isnt' right a sketch, but almost finished work, anyway I wanna post it here.
I make it digital but I’ll put in on canvas soon. Inspired to Rembrandt self portrait in costumes I weared this basco (the old hat for painter) and this Nepal wool short cloak. Is a 3 hours work using photos as reference.

Wow Lynx, looks great. I think the foundations you have in traditional will make picking up the Digital art really quick. You already know about edge, light/shadow, color theory, and composition. I think your move to digital will be a pretty easy transition from what I've see here.
The best thing I think you will get from the Digital side is being able to produce works very quickly once you find some techniques that work for you. Just like having the right brushes, knowing the right buttons to push and how to customize the digital process to fit you will eventually make you able to produce works very quickly.
Also thanks for Stopping by my sketchbook! Drop in anytime, and I'd love to have critiques from one of your caliber, but I don't discourage any critiques from any level, they'e all welcome.

Thank you guys.
@lepetitgroin - I agree with you, that's because I'm a pro traditional painter since 2006, and I didn't drawn for YEARS, but focused on colors and composition, always with reference. My goal in next year is to reach a good level of drawing with no reference at all. But with a wife, two children, and my work time for exercise isn't much. Anyway that's my direction. Thanks for your crits.

Here is The Sunken Village, an environment I made for EOW challange. The first EOW I won. So honored!
Here under an intro I written for this piece.
<We lost everything, my son. Our family, our homes. War devastated the country, and Sister Death brought dears with her… But The Grand Wave was even worse: she tooks away our land. Every single stone, and path we called with a name, forever gone with our children, brother, and wifes. That’s true: the old manor survived. The bell’s tower’s still there too. But in the silence of those bells all I can hear is… The Grand Wave’s laugh>>

And do not forget to visit us at http://wizardsduelgame.wordpress.com/
Wizards’ Duel will be a tactical turn-based RPG with an heavy focus on emergent gameplay and procedural generation of levels. With a 2d graphic design based on pixel art mixed with textures, ispired by masterpiece as Sword and Sworcery, Hyper Light Drifter and Transistor.
Wizards’ Duel is about two wizards battling each other for their own motives. In this game magic comes from making pacts with powerful spirits to harness their powers. The game is then about exploring different locations to fight powerful spirits and acquire new powers while your rival is doing the same.
The gameplay will be centered around using and combining the powers that you have acquired. For example you could use “ice” to freeze a path under the feet of your enemy and then use “wind” to push them to their death at the bottom of a pit or join them together to cast a power blizzard that will hurt and slow down enemies in an area of effect.
This mechanic joined with the impossibility to get all the spirits on the same run will hopefully create a game where strategy and tactics blend together to form a deep and replayable experience.
We have just opened our blog and started to build the game. You could consider to follow us and live with us our adventure: we need smart supporter as you!

Sabralor, The Nightmane. Prince of Nirigale, Instinct’ son. He dances to the last sun, while the falcon flys his last flight.
<<I’m a betrayer, and I deserve death. But just a privilage is what I ask for: to die not for nothing, but lose my life for protect my people>>.
Begining of April 2014, about 8 hours (too much!) with body reference. This was for a Chow, with a classic D&D theme, the sword dancer. I tryed to not twist it at all, and just give the clichè as much style as possibile. These are the first fantasy sword I faced, and I'm quiet proud of that. And the japanese style tatoo, and the pants are all made with my first attempt to use other brush than the brushes preset. A funny note: I was SURE to win that Chow round, but than a bunch of better artwork came out, and I just got 4th.
