Ugh, digital painting is hard, I am beginning to learn the techniques of digital painting. I think I did ok with this cup though, but i rprobably should have chosen a different picture.

all comments and advice is appreciated!

I actually quite liked the cup, I think you did a good job with the values and gave it a bit of a painterly look to it.

The values on the two figures are also really good, perhaps the neck on the guy is a bit off-centre and it might be an idea to look into how to make the marks on paper more orderly or less visible. I've read a tutorial on how to draw portraits in particular where it was suggested that you could use little circles to fill your areas, rather than cross-hatching.
I've also seen a Proko video where he suggested you could (particularly for larger areas like the background, which need to be inconspicuous compared to the figure, most of the time) use graphite or charcoal powder which you apply with a brush. I've taken the habit of putting my broken charcoal leds and shavings into an old coffee jar so I can use the stuff later. Also, I'm stingy.

That said, I'm trying to find a way to make my marks on paper to serve the drawing more rather than distracting from the subject, myself, so that's why I remark on it in particular. :/

I quite like the graphite studies, good use of shading. Also the cup's actually really good! You should give yourself a bit more credit. Post more O:!

Hi!
I really like how you painted that cup man.
If you paint like that without knowing, damn, I can't imagine when you know how to. XD
Our learning path never ends... Keep practicing.

Hi, thanks for the tip, i have never tried the brush method. You should see my pencil drawings from a year ago if you think these marks are distracting, i used to be really scribbly.

Great job with the life study. I think it would've benefited if you spent a little more time on it. Either way, great work with both the life study and figure drawings!

I am working on a small painting of a still life I set up using a complementary color scheme. This is after the first session of painting. Next time I will fix the major issues and add more detailed touches. After studying singer Sargent I am attempting to mimic the paint application.

@jachuu
yes, it's an oil painting. And me too. Digital painting is hard for me, but i enjoy the flexibility.

Whenever I don't have anything to work on but I still want to paint I just choose something from my desk and it usually happens to be egg shaped...
