Ok so this here is notbad and notbad at all in terms of the level of details and your pencil work. I think the eyes really draw you in and that hair is very well done in the type of anime style you'd like to see when it comes to detailed hair. I like the facial expression as well and the look of your anime character. I think you were going for a male design based on the hair and facial features. I have a friend who uses a wacom tablet and she says it can be hard to draw with at times, so the fact you're practicing with it, is a good start. I see potential in this piece and I would like to add a few things you should practice for the next submission. I think this one here could use well just a bit of coloring. I am not saying do a full scene next time, but for the next practice round you could try to colorize just the facial features and the hair. Hair is going to be the hardest for you and will take time and detail to match up the color to the pencil detailing. The other factor to work on is trying to get some shines and shades into this. All good anime or cartoons have that shine and that shade element into the work that really brings it together and ties it into one big thing. I think overall this one is here good but just needs a bit more. I think once you are good for colorizing your work, then you can add up some backgrounds with the work just to limit the amount of the white space you're using here. The white space can be a bit lack luster and you want to really make things look like a completed piece in the end, but that is for when you're not practising any longer on the wacom. Good job overall tho as the tablet can be a bit hard to get used to.

Add up some color next time and the build from there and then add a background and shine and shades, just build on this over time each time you practice.


Nice sketch

In terms of sketches, this was pretty good even if was not the most detailed. I guess it just kind of looks like it was something you didn't finish. It's still a decent sketch and it is fairly interesting to see how the lines and everything are drawn into the character. It doesn't help that I have no idea what Wacom is or who this character is. It should please more loyal fans of the series. There's nothing really flashy about it, which I guess is alright.

You might want to put in a background or maybe some color. I guess the "practice" in the title refers to what you were doing yourself with the character. I like how his spiky hair sticks up. A lot of anime and video game characters are like that. I like how he seems to have such a pleasant tone on his face.


Nice, I can't stand tablets! Nice job! =D

Wacom is a producer who sells great pen tablets. Here is the homepage, take a look: http://www.wacom.com/index.html. For example I have the Intuos4, produced by them. Thanks for the review!^^
