Been lurking for a while and noticed you people know your art, so gimme some advice with this, if you please =) .
This is my first digital painting (indeed painting, period.) I've always only done by-hand sketching with a pen or pencil. So I realize it looks uneven, and that's what I'm looking to fix: Know how to paint beings.
My main goal : To be able to paint Character concept design
, whether I do it in the form of paintings or sketches, but I much prefer painting because it just looks so much better for character concepts.
What I don't care about :Realism
: I don't want to do personal portraits or anything, more along the lines of those messy Prince of Persia : Warrior Within concept paintings. Of course I want them to look believable. Look at Dianae's work Hanagmori on Deviant Art and you'll get my Ultimate GOAL! The only reason this is a man is because that's the easiest I can sketch and I just wanted to get into the coloring part quickly.backgrounds
: Not now, probably not ever.
So help me out here, mainly with colors, tones and dark/bright areas.
Thanks in advance!
