Hi, I have been a long time observer so I thought I would bite the bullet and start a sketchbook. I thoguh I would indulge myself in the wonderfully talented people on here.
Im a 16 year old High School student, Ive only taken the few art classes offered in public schools so Im looking forward to learning from all of the amazeing artist on this website.
Your stuff is really sharp, lots of detail and the the coloured one looks really clean I like the woman with the gas mask on. Just curious, how did you colour the space marine one?
One thing though, the faces in the drawings all seem covered up with something, no offense if that's the way you envisioned it to be but when you got some time free, try making the face or load up here a drawing of a face you made
I'm 15 btw, but you're better than me, especially with colours XD.
Lurking since 2008.
Welcome! you have some very nice drawings. just try to put some more detail in your digital work. keep the drawings coming
Thanks for the Comments. I usualy do cover up the face, I have alot fo trouble with them. This drawing is from the Cover of "Guild Wars" (a PC game) I was doing ok with the face but then I dont know what happened I just screwed up the nose and jaw. (I colored the soldier with Photoshop useing a layer for each color and then a layer for shadows, set the shadow layer to multiply and it will change color as you go over each different underlying color. It was the first digital painting ive done.)
very impressing stuff it's smokin' hot in here!!!
I like it

Thank you guys. This is a nice confidence boost lol. Heres the sniper I just finished him...still needs a background though, Im open to suggestions all of my digitals need backgrounds.
-A war environnement for this one(maybe)
-Dark places for the first one
-And a Middle East enviro for the second?
This is what I think

You should definitely try different thicknesses of pen or a brushpen for your inking, that will make them come alive more. Keep it up!
Power is nothing without intelligence.
Ive been messing with the gas mask lady. I dont realy like this Background and will be changeing it but Ive got my light source and shadows fixed.
Well I was gone all weekend went fishing, But I did manage to finish this painting. I painted the background then decided I needed something for the foreground so I found the angel on google images and re-drew it and added the cliff she's on. I had a blast with this painting though.
Havnt been very active, but i got some new brush pens and prismacolor markers, been haveing a blast but I cant upload any of them right now because My stepdad borrowed my scanner for work, should have it back by monday. I did manage to start this, its not anywere near finished though.
finaly think im finished with this one. Im not likeing the outer edge of the wall very much though.( and thats supposed to be sand btw)
Ive been trying to move away from the cell shaded look but if i get rid of my lineart then it looks liek a blurry airplaine evacuation pamplet, Can someone advise me how to fix this please im clueless Ive been experimenting but have hit all dead ends.
yo black water, nice character sketchiz,
for your composition, i would advise you to start using a brush with 100% opacity first, so you can achieve hard edges instead of this blurry effect if you have only two color like here, lighten and shaded,
your sketchiz will appear more dynamic, you can also try to put a "smart harpen" on your color layer in photoshop filter > sharpen > smart sharpen
keep on posting your character research,

I gave up on the blurry desert and added this instead. The tower and helicopter are brushes, so i guess I cheated (thanks for the tip Bouroune)
Im finaly learning to paint with photoshop . (thanks badmonur, BRINKMAN!, and Blue)
Wow man you are very talented, Your infantery is very cool, but maybe you can draw the infantery in epic scenes, Figting with a giga tank, run away from the artilley bombard, a soldier very hurt etc...
Thanks for the compliments you guys. Im not takeing any art classes right now but I start my senior year of high school in eight days, Ill have 3 art classes this year but there all independent stuff mostly and college prep.
And heres an update to the painting.(this is an older version Ive already fixed the feets placement and the skin tones.)
I havnt gotten to draw much in the past week or so Ive been getting ready to go back to school . My scanner is still MIA so all I can upload is m digital stuff. This is still realy rough, I havnt realy had the drive to finish any of my digitals I dont know why but I have been drawing like crazy with my new brush pens.
No offense but my first reaction to the lady in the mask was; 'she turned into a fly!' That bright red boogy goggle eyes are awful-looking, IMO. Either add texture to it or desaturate that red because right now, my eyes are having a hard time looking around the piece when there's 2 big and bright red circles in the way.

No offence taken xsdk01 this is why I started a sketchbook is for feedback and to learn from my mistakes.
I got to use my scanner for about three seconds today I got a chance to scan one drawing so here it is (my new brush pens) . I started roughing in color in photoshop.
