...And They Will Know Me By the Trail of Dead.
I just got a Wacom, and I bought a new sketchbook last week.
So I thought I´d start a new sketchbook thread here over at CA too.
New Wacom, new sketchbook, new stuff, new times, new inspiration, and so on.
Here´s the first paintings done with the wacom, in order.

very good, bud!
try to get your hands upon a good book about anatomy, or visit loomis web site. But that's just little advices, the best advice is to just draw every day!
keep at it!

Tiger, thanks man! Yeah, gotta check more Loomis. He´s the man!
Did this one in an OC session with a friend:

I'd hold off on the Wacom and work on those analog skills first like Tiger said. You've still got quite a bit to learn anatomy wise it seems. Painting is a whole other beast and if you can draw first it helps. Trust me. Don't try to do to much at once or it will get overwhelming. Nice first attempts tho. Just get to some of those studies! Take care.

ZebzFree: Thanks man, and you´re right. But I try to draw something non-digital everyday. I always carry my sketchbook around with me.
And the Wacom is just too much fun to leave it alone.
Thanks for dropping by, man.
Here´s something I ´m working on right now.
Started by doing some thumbnail sketches. Haven´t tried that before. Thanks Hurri!
Drop some advice and comments!

Nice start on the head studies, I would try and do more angle like head tilted down, up, profile, or 3/4 faces for a broader veiw. It will help you sense the face more. I think drawing from the mirror helps with facial structure and you dont have one of your friends stuck there for a long time. Great work. Cool you got a wacom, I really want one bad ;_; Keep up the good work.

i agree with DeNyed about working on heads at different angles
also have you looked at the loomis stff? there are tuts here on CA as well
i would suggest not making your lines so scratchy also. sweet stuff and keep this up

Thanks for the nice words on my sketchbook mate, I thought I'd pop over and have a nice look at your stuff.
As most people, you have a wonderful imagination, and some nice rendering on a few of these pencilled images. I think however on the painter pieced, you might want to learn how to blend a bit more to help transitions of color. Blending sounds easy, but to do it well, can make or break the piece.
Also, I notice you do not use a lot of hard lines and tend to use more soft edges - which is fine, but remember that apart from contrast and color, line quality/definition is what people's eyes are drawn to - its like looking at clouds, generally clouds are a big mass of formless, shapeless masses - but there are smatterings of edges and definition which give visual anchors to tell you such things as the scale of a cloud and distance of a cloud.
If you have a soft style, using these defined visual anchors will lead your viewer's eye completely to the area you want them to look at, since its the only place they can focus on, everything else is treated as peripheral and alluded to.
Good luck, m.

I can see you'r starting slowley, to study the anatomy. That's great. Like someone above said; study the head from different angels, and look for realistic forms.
The wacom stuff is very imaginativ. very nice to look at, keep up!
