Hihi new here, first post Hello all Concept Artistsististss.
Actually have a bunch of sketches back home, but have always been too lazy to Scan -> Upload then to computer and post here. Not at home now, and dont have an access to a Scanner here but I did pick up a spiffy new tablet so I thought I'd test it out, and start a sketchbook here at the same time as I'm bored here.. a lot. So heres the first doodle I've done using my tablet.
PS: I couldnt get the hand right.. well the whole right arm I think is off..
EDIT: Added another doodle. Figured I should at least up 2 sketches since the title IS 2 scoops.
EDIT2: Alright added 2 sketches.. aannndd I'm done for today. After I found a brush I really liked, sorta had to keep goin.

Welcome to CA! I can see at the lines that you are indeed drawing with the tablet for the first time. If you can scan your traditional work, please do. As for tips: Try to get the proportions right, I know your aiming for a manga style and that's alright with me, but keep working on the anatomy and draw a lot from life as well for understanding depth and proportions better.
Hey Thanks for the advice! Yeah I hope to try and do some more life drawings, and maybe do some coloring experiments with this tablet. But yea, one step at a time. I totally agree with the lines, I found myself very.. unconfident? with my lines, any excercises I can do to improve that?
PS: I'll try to scan some pen/pencil & paper work when I get back to North America, as I dont have a scanner where I am at the moment.
One I did today, found a ref and tried to draw something a little more realistic this time, but couldn't help myself in the end.. got pretty cartoony when I got to his face. I Really like how this sketch turned out though, might clean it up and give it a background, "try" to color it. What do you guys think??
PS: Yeah I'll try to do something more realisitic next time -.-;

The last pic looks better already. Try cleaning up the lines and I'd definately go for color or grayscale values.
Keep up the good work!
Edit: And the cartoony look is awesome If you put in the time and refine that pic it'll be a really cool one.
Hey guys thanks for the replies. Yeah I'm defiantely gona try to do a good copy. I'm leading towards doing a grayscale coloring first, but do you guys have any tips on how to clean up lines? I went over the picture with a large brush but it doesnt really look right to me. I'll upload an update tommorow morning, I'm dead tired right now ^^;
- kovah yeah I totally agree with you, I'm gona start doing some life drawings this week. Hmm I'll see what I can do regarding the head, I was going for some perspective since hes leaning his head back a bit. Maybe I screwed it up . Thank you for the advice though, I'll see if I can fix that somehow.
New Sketch. &
My attempt at cleaning up/some grayscale coloring of "zzz". Maybe someone can do an example for me.. I'm not really sure how to go about cleaning up a sketch.
lol first sketch was what I did before work... and I finished the sketch after work. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. ..
- I also have no idea why I keep doing sketches related to Death of a salesman, but oh well.
Still working on Guy Sleepin on Subway. Will post an update when I make it look decent.
