    Kai's Sketch Book

    I've been drawing all my life..well as long as I can remember...But I really never took it seriously so I never got better...I would sometime get lazy and never finish the work..So hopefully this will help motivate me to draw more.

    I am interested in learning digital painting...and well i really have no idea where to start...The only drawing Pograms I have now is Adobe Photoshop and Artrage... What kind of porgrams do you guys use to paint?, but for now heres all I can do with art rage and photoshop.

    I did this in Artrage.

    your shading isnt bad, especially on the first drawing. you may want to start playing around with varying your line weight, unless you prefer to keep your stuff light. that's fine if you do; alan lee's stuff is awesome. you might check out his stuff.

    as for digital paint, you can do good stuff with photoshop, but you definitely need a wacom tablet if you dont already have one. corel painter is probably the best digital paint program out there that i know of though. Gnomon offers some really good dvds on digital painting by ryan church (star wars concept artist) and feng zhu. if your serious about it, i'd definitely recommend them. their kind of pricey, but well worth it in my opinion.

    Welcome to CA.org

    Got some cool stuff so far. Keep up with the pencils, and good luck on moving to other mediums. I've found it really doesnt matter what medium you practice in, as long as you practice. Lots.

    i've seen the wacoms up to $450-$500 for a 12x12. of course smaller ones go for less. your best bet is ebay though. you can find some really good deals on some.

    Seriously, don't by anything other then wacom. there are a couple cheap-o brands, and i have bought two before i bought my first wacom (both started with an A, but i forget there names). They, for the most part, didn't even to a fuctional level. One said it had like 1000 points of presure, but it was more like 3 and the shifted like you were drawing in a earth quake.

    Painters neat, but if i was just coloring lines up, and not actually painting, i would say photoshop is better. Of course its all preference, so i hope you get both and decide for yourself.

    the digital painting of the girl looks really flat. you may want to try building up some darker shadows and add a few highlights. it will make all the difference.

    line quality looks better on those drawings.
