    WOW! thank you so much American Aurora for your comment! Yes! my main idea was a video game reboot. I'm happy that you capture my mood perfectly the "It's cool, whatever" vibe.

    You need to design the new Buffy game, Buffylover. Or the next comics. Truly fantastic re-imagining of a classic character. I love the "It's cool, whatever" vibe going on there.

    Oh, right! That makes sense from a gaming perspective. It's like those health packs that used to lie around in Doom. (I know , I'm old ;-) ETA: though I see Buffy is wearing a Doom t-shirt, so that still makes me feel a bit cool ;-)

    Double Dutchess Thank you so much, DD for your comment! I'm glad you like the bedroom piece I enjoyed making that one. It could represent that way, a holy water dispenser, but my idea was more of health potions like a checkpoint.

    I love this, amazing job at portraying a fresh new gamer/skater Buffy! The one in her room may be my favourite, seeing how she has decorated it is fun! She sure loves her weapons :-) And is that a holy water dispenser in the cemetery?!

    I can see it's perhaps a bit too heavily blue in her right eye. But the pick up of the eye colour to the background and against the grey/blue in the white of the dress is great. It really travels your eye around and is fab against the orange/mood.

    Thanks! Glad to hear you like the blue, since I do kind of regret that colour (especially in the case of the eyes).

    I love the texture of that Nina and the touches of blue that pick up around it. Very lovely.

    Okay, another study. I've tried two things. The first is that I made no line art and the second was that I took a more traditional approach.





    Reference picture is a still from The Miniaturist which I found on the Anya Taylor-Joy fansite. Brushes are by G Rutkowski.

    So this may not be the right thread but I'm thinking of getting into digital drawing. I bought a very good friend of mine, who is an artist, a professional graphics tablet but he had no use for it since he doesn't like digital art. He gave it back (all in good spirit) and thought I would have much more use with it. Since I am not very good with drawing, I thought you guys could help find tutorials to help me get back into it. I used to sketch a good while back and had gotten semi good at it, but any skill I had seems to be gone now. I think I do need basic tutorials for drawing and sketching in general but maybe there's a good middle for the digital drawing part. Any help?
    I've been messing around with digital art for two years now and still I can't draw or sketch properly, but I've watched a lot of tutorials and I did manage to go from always using a raster to using the photoshop rulers to not needing either when I make a study of a photo reference. So there is some improvement.


    A few (digital) artists with a YT or Twitch channel:

    Sinix Design
    Ahmed Aldoori
    Marco Bucci
    Proko
    Aaron Griffin
    AliceXZ

    Some of them make a lot of tuts, others just show us their process. Aaron Griffin has my favourite free package of brushes as well. I did download so many sets, but this one is the best IMO. It has all you need. (Brush no. 33 is my favourite for the mixer brush tool.)


    Also the old books by Andrew Loomis can be found on the internet. Like this one about the whole figure or this one about the head and hands.


    And a few things I learned:
    • Don't focus on everything at the same time when you're learning. If you make a study and want to focus on the anatomy or likeness, it's okay to borrow a colour palette using the colour picker, use a normal round brush etc. Or when you want to learn more about colour or brushwork, feel free to use a raster (or trace) to set up the sketch.
    • Using a raster, a ruler or even tracing isn't evil anyway. Although tracing does require that you mention that when you post your study.
    • A basic round brush is the best brush when you're learning. Wonderful things can be done with different brushes, but the round brush is perfectly fine and much easier to use.
    • Find a nice brush for the mixer brush tool (like I said, I use no. 33 by Aaron Griffin), it's a tool I've never used before when I made wallpapers. But it's great when you make digital paintings/drawings.
    • The cool thing about digital art is that you can use traditional styles while also enjoying the perks of photoshop. In the beginning I felt like I was cheating when I used photoshop tools to create shapes or tweak colours. But after watching many videos by others, I learned that most digital artists do it.

    I hope this helped a little bit and I'm looking forward to see your art.
