Subject title: Digi Paint and Doodles

Hello,

I've recently discovered how lacking my art skills are and decided that it was time to do something about it. I'm determined to improve myself.

I have difficulty in the following:
1. Forms
2. Perspective
3. Coloring and Values
4. Composition and Layout
5. Painting environment/ background/ creatures (animals etc.)
and many many more haha

I'll start posting some of my stuff here but so far I've mostly posted my digital works in tumblr and my traditional works on instragram. I have a sketchbook in conceptart.org and a DA account but I haven't used them much. If you have the time, I would appreciate it if you could take a look at the links down below and give me helpful feedbacks :)

DA acc: http://justdt21.deviantart.com/gallery/
*** Just so you know, my DA is definitely a mess and contains many of my old works

Welcome! I like your choice of colours, esp in the second one!
And your first post; we all have alot to practice here, so don't feel bad and think that your art skills are "lacking" :D

those environment pieces are really nice! Your choice of color really makes them work.

Hi !
Cool characters, I like them :)
As you think you have some issues with environments, I did a really quick paintover of how you could already easily improve them (i think) :

I like your style very much. The landscapes feel like they could be on postcards or advertisment.

I can tell you how I did it :)
draw lots of cubes, spheres and cylinders, and light them perfectly. Choose a light source, an ambient environment, and think about how the different planes are affected by the light. Don't hesitate to emphasize the bounced light so you know where it is, why and how.
Oh and what you should ALWAYS be thinking : 1 plane, 1 value

Oh I see. Thanks! I'll make sure to keep that in mind the next time :D I've been trying to do grayscaling so i'd have a better grasp on values but I'm having a hard time especially when it comes time to color. If you have any advice on that pls tell me. It would be a great help ^.^

Thanks everyone! I haven't been uploading much recently and I just felt I was neglecting this thread so Imma just upload this study I did a few days ago :))

My focus on this was on coloring so feel free to point out any ways I can improve :) I also discovered this brush with a rough texture which I L.O.V.E.

I tried out a different process of painting. Mostly what I've learned from watching the videos of my favorite artists, Wakkawa and Loish to name a few. Their works are awesome. I have a long way to go haha
