    Soo... I decided to scrap the above start, and decided to really try to find the colors I wanted to use and really try to learn some techniques from a tutorial, I think I found a good set of starting colors and I think I learned a bit, heres a new beginning tell me what you think , I'm gonna move this to the work into the critique center or something so I can get more help on it.

    Some already mentioned, dont just jump to Graphics because you see all these fantastic works on this forum done that way. Lets try and build a basic foundation first. Learning the anatomy really helps you understand the human form, so that, I suggest you try. Draw these things with a pencil though, no wacom needed.

    I think when you are ready for digital it just seems to click. Right now when I look at your work it seems you rushed a few steps in education. You seem to like using photoshop to colour your drawings in, I would'nt. Use traditional things to start with, it feels more natural.

    Just my general opinions, its up to you how you pursue your education.

    I draw on paper with different types of pencil and pen quite a bit actually, I just recently got my scanner hooked up. Maybe I will post some anatomy drawings sooner or later.

    I haven't really sketched on in photoshop for a week or so until today, heres a basically finished version of that painting I started above and a sketch I did in ps.

    Ok so I hope some people still comment on the drawing above, But here is a painting im trying to work on, It's been really hard, I'm having a really hard time on the skin here. I messed with the contrast and stuff.

    Tell me what you are thinking

    [EDIT] I don't like this one at all and so I'm going to change it to a link so i'm not entirely embarassed and it's not bogging the thread down at all.

    nice job, especially on te guy walking.
    here is a paintover of the latest head:

    Dustin Walker's Sketchbook!

    Dustin Walker's Sketchbook!

    a few things to look out for:
    dont draw eyes as big as you think.
    a common beginner mistake is to make them bigger than they really are.
    also, make sure they are lower on the head...about half way.

    dont let the forehead slope back so much,
    show us a nice vertical plane in the front.

    careful with the ear.
    overall, the takes on more of a "C" shape.
    that little dip before the lobe is much less prominent.
    Dustin Walker's Sketchbook!

    that neck got reallllly big at the bottom.
    think of how far back his shoulders would be to connect to that neck.
    thin it out.

    overall, i think you should find some andrew loomis tutorials online, and sharpen up on the basic planes and proportions of the head.

    Here is an update people.

    So I decided that I wanted to draw a character, then I figured out that I didn't know anatomy well and then I just started to study and draw the character at the same time, In the original pose. I ended up with something I think is pretty good, The hand is wishy washy but I was mainly focused on the body and arms.

    Then a while ago I made a self portrait, hmm well I think it's nice as well.
    Tell me what you think people crits are encouraged.

    PS, I was looking into a mirror for the self and the hair gets cut off because of my clip board.

    Looking at your work from the top of the thread to your latest post, I can see a really noticeable improvement. All I can say really is keep up the practice, you're a darn quick learner

    I know it's been a while since I posted, I've really been meaning to start drawing more, but I haven't drawn since my last post.

    I guess, I just haven't been motivated or inspired before recently, I have been pretty depressed and having a hard time with alot of things in my life.

    Things are starting to get better, I just hope it lasts.

    Just finished this, this morning, after about 2 hours.

    Hope someone comments on it.

    EDIT*
    Just finished the second drawing, took me about an hour, no reference.

    so I see you've been using photoshop and painter. Man aren't they great? Hey man thanks for the words on my sb. All I can really say man is keep goin, go all the way, if you need some great books anything by bridgeman is great. Also I just got this great book called "the human figure" by david k rubins, the art isn't that great but it really helps for the anatomy.

    k chat later!

    work gives u self estim

    when i'm depressed i work better
    i see in the two last works that u have less disproportions->cool thing
    my advice is to work first on paper on a surface of 5x5 cm yes 5x5cm
    and do hundreds sketchings per day of anything u see or feel try to see some manuals of anatomy they help.
    u have the potential...and yes work pays off u got to believe in and believe in ur self
    keep posting
    for fun & art
