Don't know why I've never set one of these up to be honest ^^; Some of you have probably seen my deviantART account though tongue.gif

So... for the past few years I've considered myself a tradition artist and will always continue to be one. Just a few examples:



But currently, I'm hoping to become a better computer artist, which I've had to always use a mouse to create stuff like this:



But now, finally I've gotten a tablet, where I hope to improve my computer art even further. smile.gif

The funny thing about that Avengers drawing is my Dad sorta challenged me to draw it. He knew I was a good artist, but since I normally only tend to draw Sonic and Naruto, he wanted to know if I could draw anything comic book related smile.gif

Just got my tablet yesterday for my birthday (haven't set it up yet though)

Great drawings !
I must say that you draw very well. I liked the one of Sonic. The one of NS is nice too.

Keep up with the good job and hope you'll share more XD

I've been telling myself for years that I'll get a tablet, but every birthday and Christmas I dont get one XD Given its because I want a big one and they dont run cheap. So all these years all my artwork is just drawn by hand and colored with the mouse. Challenges are always great to accept and conquer especially as an artist. When I was younger I drew nothing but animals and Sonic XD I got the courage to draw ppl and now I'm actually not to bad at it. Let me know how it goes with your tablet!

Well I got something I'll post later in the day... It'll be the lines before I attempt to color it in Photoshop (thank you school laptop)

I've always liked Naruto's first true power-up (learning Jutsu/semi-controlling the Fox didn't cut it for me)

Ooh nice! I'm actually impressed with the feet haha. It took me forever to learn to draw feet straight-on like that without it looking really weird biggrin.gif

Well guys, I'd figured I show off my progress so far on the piece I posted not too long ago. There's still some kinks and lacks an appealing background... but I think it's getting there. Also, now that I updated the drivers, the tablet made coloring thing more of a breeze (though it still took like 2-3 hours) tongue.gif

I'll post the final version as well when I finish is

Lookin' good! Nice job making the glow of the Rasengan light Naruto's body. Looks convincing.

Are you planning on much of a background or are you going to leave it plain?

To be honest, I want to make a background that gives the piece more depth. Also, this gives me the perfect opportunity to test my water skills (and attempt a reflection)

As for the Rasengan's light, thank you happy.gif I decided to mess around with light features and the way to do it dawned on me

I know what you are saying about the background for sure. Although I'd be really careful to make sure Naruto still stands out against it. As a whole you've already painted him pretty dark so you could try making most of the background lighter.

^ I'm so use to creating backgrounds now, that it really doesn't bug me. Sometimes when I'm impatient or lazy though, I don't make them sweatdrop.gif
