This pic is my first stab at digital arts. I'm using a bamboo tablet and sketchbook pro. Colour has always been my stumbling block but I feel I learnt a lot doing this pic. I took a lesson on how to draw gold from you tube and applied it to my drawing. One thing I learned is I need to draw bigger! This pic was so small on the canvas that the air brush tool couldn't shrink down to a practical size. Next time I will try to make the subject self shadowing too.. here the subject is just shadowed generically in a comic book type way.. but for a doodle I like it. Some good tips on feathering helped but more practice is needed. I have no idea how the real artists get there drawings to look so traditional as if hand drawn.. lots of you tube videos and google tutorials in my future :)

Constructive criticism and tips are welcome! I'm too happy to have gotten this far with the tablet to be subjective, let me know if its crap or not! :)
