Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Its been about a year since I posted here and got some pretty harsh (but completely valid) critiques. Since then I've done quite a bit of practice (not enough) and a bought and read a few books . I recently bought a Wacom tablet that I've been trying to work with, but I'm finding this kind of drawing extremely difficult, but I thought I'd get some more up to date critiques.
On top of this I have a few questions.
1) I have real trouble coming up with backgrounds. I know where I want the characters and such to be, but I have difficulty trying to convey it. Any tips to help with that?
2) As I mentioned earlier I have real trouble working with the Wacom. It's easier than a mouse for sure, but I just don't seem able to make a line that isn't wobbly. Is there a good way to practice this beyond just drawing constantly? (Last time I was here, someone gave me some exercises with basic shapes.
Finally here's the only vaguely decent piece I feel I've done. The rez is not great, now I know I guess. ONe thing I really don't like about this are the work surfaces and I know nothing about colour theory, so its all by instinct. Any good resources on this would also be appreciated, but mostly I'm just trying to get the actual drawing down to an acceptable standard.
