Hi, here i'll try to post some digi sketches i've started to practice, since i'm not very confortable with digi sketches. I'm more of traditional stuff, i have my wacom since past year but i don't use it as often as i would like so i'm making this thread in order to change that.
Bare with me, this is the first time i spent more than 30 minutes on something, and i'll try to do it everytime.
Of course, crits and comments are welcome.
Old OC sketches.
New photoshop attempts.

2 more for today, none of them are finished. Just doodling practising values or something.
Thanks man...I'll keep at it.
Silly speedy creature.
Nice job! I really like the women your coloring in photoshop!

RandAlThor, nyssa; Thanks, glad you like.
Couple of silhouettes pages. I'll try to do a finished version of one of these.
Nice to see you posting work again.
Not a bad start with your digis, but they are still far from your traditional stuff.
The lineart is strong as ever, but you need to work on your edges and brushwork/markmaking.
Those silhouettes look great ,however, nice designs.
I guess it's just practice from here on, keep it up mate, i'm looking forward to updates.
great work, I love your line work and silhouettes
Thanks for nice comment in my SB.
You've got some really cool stuff yourself, I especially like the armor and general feel of the second figure.
Really nice work. Love the silhouettes!
Sonaj - hey man, yes you're right about it, so i will continue practising. Thanks for dropping by dude.
Arteater - thanks man, glad you liked.
krossj - Hey, thanks, I'm trying to come up with new stuff i'm not confortable with.
lewisaurus - thanks dude, keep up the good work.
starzik - Thank you
More silhouttes, characters this time. I'll try to do these as often as i can, there's a lot i need to learn and assimilate. Hopefully i'll do finished version of one of these too.
Ok, here's my first attempt with this kind of stuff.
The shapes are not reading very well, but i kinda liked. Anyways, i learned a lot by doing this.

Well, it's been a long day, draw a lot and learned a whole lot. It's time to go to bed, it's almost 3 am and i been drawing like 11 hours.
Another silhouette worked up, like 40 minutes.
very nice vehicle silhouettes, would love to see you take them a further.
nice stuff here. i'd suggest brushing up on your anatomy a little bit. and in your digis some color theory wouldn't hurt also try pushing the contrast in the images more as well. keep it up.
To live is to create, to create is to live. Without art and music, I do not know how I would get by in my day to day life.
Warground Zer0 - yes, i'll do it man, eventually when i feel more confortable with shapes. Thanks man.
thesadpencil - Thanks man, about the constrast, totally agree with you, and that's something i really need to work on.
Another silhouette worked up. WIP
And an Selfportrait i got tired and leave it as it is.

Nice work diego!! le podes seguir dando al personaje del "8", y ese feo quien es? jaja tan geniales mañana posteo en el mio, pasate! salutes!!
PD: buen brush el del autoretrato, seguilo!
jaja, "El Feo". Gracias por pasarte su luz, espero ver algo tuyo posteado hoy mismo. jajaja.
Your linework is really clean. And your anatomy is pretty good too. Explore painting further and push your values! Be daring!
I agree with Peringalitte. Your digi sketches need more value ranges to get a more 3d look to them. Try doing some digi paints of still life to get an idea of the range of values you can use. Apples or oranges, whatever.
My favourites would have to be your vehicle silhouettes. You had some nice forms in there!
 DRAW EVERYDAY >
You can paint a white coffee cup to practice the "3d" look, saludos diego!
Hey man, the digitals are getting better by the minute! Lovin the silhouettes!
On the last one, maybe try to indicate what kind of material his armor is made of? Try to experiment with the rendering to get a metallic feel, or something?
And i agree with the rest, push the contrast a little bit more.
Keep it up dude!
Thanks guys, i'm trying to get a wider range of values but i get lost in the way and end up painting the same values over and over. Hope to fix this as i continue practising.
Not a good drawing day today, feeling too tired, think i been over excercising but i manage to do this.
