You know, first month of the tablet, and I'm having fun with it
So I will make a sketchbook, and I will try to improve and things
I'm a hard worker.. really
EDIT: 2011, is what it took me to start drawing o_________o I didn't know I was procrastinating so long.
Been drawing 4 hours a day now. Wish me luck!
EDIT2: The dog picture isn't mine, but it looks so cute. !.
EDIT3: Just drawing in my spare time now.

I like the underwater picture (is that pokemon? ) but for drawing bodies and people, I'd train up a bit with traditional art. Only start using digital work when you are happy and feel experienced enough with pencil and paper to make a new step. Digital art can be a big step for most, and like they say, don't run before you can walk.
Wait, if you have a tablet, shouldn't you be able to afford at least a sketchbook, pencils, and erasers? o______O Unless you got it as a present or something lmao.
Oh, I see a Pokemon~ I forgot what it's called though lmao, too many Pokemon. T__T Anyways, you're off to a good start. Rendering, a bit of cleaning up, and blending in the brush strokes can be something that you can work on based on the stuff you've posted up so far. That's all I can say for now. x]
You have a cute imagination. I like the overall look of the mantine painting. Like supermarionbros said, blending in the strokes would clean it up a bit. As for the mountains, it looks like the lighting is all over the place. I can't really help with digital work, though.
Keep it up and study, study, study.

AHH I see, same here! I got Intuos4 as well, but for Christmas though. I'm still learning how to use it though, aha. Also, which digital program are you using? Photoshop? Actually it's not that it's bad to use for digital painting, but, correct me if I'm wrong, but personally I find it a bit harder to paint on Photoshop. The program that I use is Paint Tool SAI, and with that it's pretty much for digital painting, so you already have your blending settings, brushes, etc. set up for you and you can just change it right away. In Photoshop, you have to keep going back and forth with the brush settings, close the window, test it out, then go back again to change the settings...
I don't know, I actually may be wrong about the Photoshop part, but if I am, then I'm sorry about that. I haven't been using it as much as I used to before. .____. I don't even know if you're using it or not lmao, but yeah... I don't even know how to blend on Photoshop, unless you use blur or smudge or something, which may soften your work too much. =/
And I do suggest on taking art classes, which will help push you further to create more artwork. However in the end, it's all up to you, and you're pretty much responsible for your own improvement. People can help you out along the way, but in the end, it's you who's doing the art. So basically, school shouldn't be the only thing that's making you do art, and it's something that I realized up 'til now. So draw outside of school, draw even in the winter... Hey, I get cold too, but it doesn't stop me from doing artwork. Just wear a blanket like I do, lmao...
Don't worry, if you're like me and tend to say yes to everything, but in the end you don't do it and procrastinate.... I'm like that too, but I've been trying my best to change my habits lately. Ever since I hit grade 12 [a few months ago], I've been drawing a bit more and tried to put a bit more effort into my artwork, since I'm going to college next year and such. But yeah, to help keep you motivated, do it because you like it. If you feel inspired to do something, do it right away or else the motivation will slip away. Even if you start on something and get unmotivated by it later on, at least you started on something, which is another step for becoming better than you originally were. ^.^
And yeah........ I'm gonna go stop now, I rant too much. XD
Haven't updated in a while!
This is just a preview of what I've been up to (quick gestures in the tablet since I don't have a scanner, and I don't really draw that well with a tablet so and I don't have a scanner )
Wee, and anyone have advice on anatomy tidbits?
I have much trouble with arms, and the little muscles that's hard to notice
I have no trouble with the major ones though (torso, upper/lower back, however the ones on the shoulder blades confuse me, and a little of the legs) .
I stopped drawing for a couple days and I forget everything yaaargh!
I try drawing my own arms...but no muscles.
So I am still trying to get the concept of forms down (well... 'feeling' the forms).
I'm still alive! No scanner...can't scan progress
All I've been doing so far are still lives, getting values down and some observational skills. Sailing smooth so far, very intimidated about more complicated studies. I don't really have a scanner..I think...actually lemme go check, if I do I'll scan my sketchbook and post the pictures here to show my progress. Right now this is like a journal... I uhh
Yeah but today I tried digital...yeah it didn't go so well...lol
v down there
some 2 minute studies
and wao I havent drawn in a while. oops
it stopped getting interesting after the last one, so I cut off. will do more on and off this weekend now that I have time.
Aaa, this is complicated.
I'll just end this for now.
(sergent study thingy)
..now that I look at it I kinda made the head a little too tilted...oops
it was supposed to be a photo study thing, but it got really boring so I just scrapped the photo (well..it was still there but it was for reference lol) and made up my own lighting and colors. it was fun for the second half
wow I'm getting the hang of this
yaaaay! I finally figured out the pressure sensitivity adjustment on this thing so I can do stuff properly now!
also happy christmans guys!
mistakes on the previous piece inspired me to draw some more. i'll draw some more today.
this one I made too small unfortunately.
the image was too small for me to add finer details. i will make it bigger next time. sorry for the looseness.
aaaaaaaaaa why is skin so complicated
I give up on this one, I will revisit it later, I have to eat lunch
quick gestures today to get me in the drawing mood
laaah a quick doodle from imagination
I can never draw eyes symmetrically
Push those values, man! #19 looks good, now take that and put it into aaall of your stuff.
Yes, I thought about that too when the idea and concept of forms just magically clicked in my head.
Thanks I will, but I don't know if I did it in todays exercise...
In this exercise I tried copying textures I saw on reference photos. This is the first batch. I learned alot of things by just doing these three. I hope to do the rest of the template, but I have a bigger focus in mind right now. I'll upload/and do some more stuff today if I can...Thanks for tuning in!
Thank you for commenting on my SB!
Texture studies! What a great idea! Hmm, maybe I should consider those...
Nothing to add, carry on!
Hey you are working on all the right things! The contrast is your grayscale studies is improving. I would work more on what teloh mentioned about brush stroke and form, using your mark to paint around an object. Like if you were to paint the dude's arm in #20, making marks around his arm instead of lengthwise with it would help show the mass. Hope you get what i mean.
I stopped looking at the reference later on because it was confusing me so I just did Li and Telohs told me.
Its lacking out on alot of the tid bits of detail though. :I
Also excuse the weird artifacts...
