    I tried, that's all that matters. Right?

    Here is a drawing I did way back, like a year ago. As you can see I'm having a bit of trouble when it comes to painting on Photoshop and I literally have no idea how I'm supposed to paint on that program.

    You might be better off drawing in pencil and learning not to pet your lines. Also if you're doing studies, think about what you what to learn and how you're going to get there.

    A nap can do wonders in trying to fight off an illness, well for the most part anyway. Here's a master study of John singer Sargent's work I did in an hour and thirty minutes. I know the work is still incomplete, but I'll finish it tomorrow or something along those lines because holy crap I'm tired.

    Nice sketchbook, welcome aboard! I am pretty new here but I thought I would share a few tips anyway. I am in no way an amazing artist, but I still feel like I might be able to contribute a bit.

    Since you are struggling with digital painting I would suggest watching the videos from CTRLpaint (just google it). CTRLpaint has a lot of great tutorials that are easy to follow and VERY useful, at least in my opinion. Also, if you want to work on anatomy (which it seems that you are interested in) you should try to pick up some books about the subject(I suggest "Figure Drawing: Design and invention" by Michael Hamptons, "Figure Drawing for all it's worth" by Andrew Loomis or perhaps one of Bridgman's books. Just google the names and you will find their books.)

    If I said something wrong feel free to correct me people of conceptart.org, but I really hope that this helped you! Just keep pushing man! Can't wait to see what you achieve.

    Thanks for the input, I'm rather new to the whole digital painting scene as I only started experimenting with digital painting programs like Paint Tool Sai like two years ago and last year I began transitioning over to Photoshop. And boy can I tell you that those paint programs are extremely different. I went into Photoshop thinking that it would be similar to Sai, but I was sorely mistaken. Come to think of it, I never heard of CTRL paint before. I'm going to check it out to see what I can learn.

    Yeah, Photoshop is quite intimidating at first but trust me, once you have used it for a couple of months it will feel completely natural for you. Definitely check out CTRLpaint. It is a really amazing resource and it can teach you a lot Good luck with your art!

    And here's me screwing around with color. It's hard trying to find brushes and brush settings you like when you are beginning on photoshop. This is a WIP that I'll probably never finish. I'm anime trash--I'm beyond help.

    Alright, I guessed I took the term sketch literally since there are a few comments about my sketchy and scratchy lines. Not many people are fond of them. SO...I'm going to try to make my lines cleaner from now on.
