It's super rough at the moment, but I started working on drawing someone else' character my way.

Her shoulder seems to be out of the joint.
Just a little mistake but anatomy matters!

Think I'm getting pretty close to being finished with this one. I'll do some more work and polish it up some more then post it in the portal tomorrow. I got a pretty awesome idea for a Mass Effect 3 Bioshock Infinite crossover. :D

Okay, practically finished now, but I know I'll want to make some last second edits as soon as a post it...

How is the compostion? I know there isn't much movement, but should I crop it a little?

Well... this started as me practicing some anatomy, but it's going to be some pervy Tali fanart. I think I'm going to draw her wading through splashing water while the sun is setting on her homeworld. Should be cool when it's done. Maybe put a drink in her hand with a straw too.

Thanks, I think it's my best yet.

I'm still going to do a bigger tali picture with water and a sunset and a drink in her hand but I like one right here enough to go ahead and submit it. The pose will be different in the next one. I'm trying to avoid nudity on this account. I might make another account for anatomy exercises and more mature stuff.

This isn't really a digital painting tutorial, but it will be extremely helpful for improving fundamental drawing skills. Check out this guy's youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/ProkoTV?feature=watch

This guy does a great job explaining how to go about drawing the human head and it's features and now he's starting a figure drawing series which I'm sure will be good too. I highly recommend you and everyone to give his videos a watch and try to draw along with them. Just keep practicing.

These videos, along with others, have been super helpful for me. Also if you haven't bought a tablet, don't get something super expensive. I'm using a wacom bamboo tablet and it's awesome (I got the biggest bamboo I could) and is about $160 give or take.

I'll give his videos a shot, but I more or less wanted a digital painting tutorial. I Google this kind of thing all the time, but I cannot seem to find a good tutorial. What I want has to do with texturing, creating different textures using just the default brush and such. I would also like some pointers on layering, as in how many layers I should use, lining, and shading and such. If you could link me to those as well, it would be very appreciated. I am getting my computer in the mail today or tomorrow, and I want to be able to start practicing painting these different textures.

You really should take a look at the channel bigCman posted. It'll help you out a lot.

Ctrl Paint seems like it's more along the lines of what you're looking for. If you want my advice, though, don't just skip ahead to the digital painting portion of the website. Watch and practice everything in order.

Honestly when it comes to how many layers you should use everyone has a different opinions. Some people don't use any layers so it's more traditional (and honestly simpler) some use a ton of layers.

I add a new layer when ever I want to add something new or make a big change to my picture because. I do this so that I don't have to be careful and don't have to worry about ruining one of my paintings. Also I suggest saving multiple version when working on a big painting.

MY ADVICE ON TEXTURES

I didn't really watch a tutorial about this, it was really just trail and error for me. When it comes to textures I recommend have some fun with different brushes. I personally use Dan Luvisi's (amazing illustrator in terms of realism and crazy designs) custom brush pack http://browse.deviantart.com/art/My-Brush-Pack-2-0-370697141 . But seriously all the awesome textures in the world will not mean shit if the anatomy and structure doesn't make any sense (well it could if you were does surrealism, abstract, cartoon stuff). Also you really should watch his videos if you want to improve.

Okay, I started working on a T-Shirt design I'm going to submit to Teefury. It's a Breaking Bad and Half Life cross over. Not finished. Hopefully they'll accept it and I can make some money. Also going to make a t-shirt design like my Shepard picture (but I'll still do a finished realistic colored version).

Thanks man I appreciate the comment, and yes I really excited about that one. I feel like it's something that just has to be done, I can't believe other people haven't already.

Here's an update on my t-shirt design. I might tone down the roughness, but I think it makes it look badass. Also changed the text to "I am the danger".
