I am an Illustration Major in my second year of college. As many of you already figured out, it is not enough to do the class assignments at school to become a great artist. In order to keep track of my progress, I want to post in this thread regularly.
Right now I am focusing on my painting skills, because I feel more comfortable with a pen than with a brush.
Here are two quick (around 30 mins) shere exercices: In the first one I used different tones and a hard edged brush. The second one I did with just black and white, a soft brusch (20 % hardness) and a really low flow (2%).
I noticed that I am very heavy handed when it comes to digital painting.
