Def Character 2006-06-04 14:27:42 Nice one...^^ You can find a sketched comment under your entry on the forum 6^^
lotsofblood 2006-06-04 16:48:36 hey its a good start, draw lots n lots more and youll get better, remember: it's a poor craftsman who blames his tools...or something like that.. if you really want photoshop, i suggest you download it illegally and crack it, or ask a friend who knows lots about computer to do it for you :)
Zeph 2006-06-04 20:25:47 i commented on the forum, but ill do it the same here. You can become a great artist WITHOUT photoshop. Practice makes perfection, not a fancy program. It's a nice picture for your first art. Post more!
Pixel 2006-06-05 01:56:41 sure i will, i'm studying the body of a women right now, and i yust keep practicing, i used Game-Maker image editor for this, because it works better for me than paint... the biggset problem is i can't start with a pencil, and colour it with my comp, because i haven't got a scanner :(. so this is fully done without a pencil.
Joou 2006-06-06 19:27:28 I'd recommend honing your skills in other programs, and further bettering yourself in art before getting an advanced program like Photoshop. Photoshop doesn't make you a good artist, contrary to popular belief. You're only good in PS if you're good outside of PS. Anyway, it's not too bad considering it's drawin in a primitive paint-like program with a mouse. Not sure what this program has, but Paint's curvy line tool would really help you. Also, try not to use outlines for the muscles. Just use darker skin-colored lines.
Shinfate 2006-06-11 14:47:46 hey not bad for a start, at least you already know a bit about shadows. but the others are right, a professional program doesn't make you a good artist, BUT those programs CAN support you if used correctly. if you have photoshop, never use a standard effect unless you know how to use it ( it just looks noob ). btw. I'm your friends friend ( Wouter ) from wushu ^_~

Random art
I know, I know Valentinesday was Monday, But hey.. It's been awhile since I uploaded a picture... 
Hope you like this one, she did ^_^
finally colored it.  w00t.  Actually, I have another file where I started coloring it entirely my computer, but then I got shipped off to music camp and, where there's nothing to do in the afternoon, I one day got bored and decided to experiment with colored pencils.  It turned out well - better than the digital version was coming, if that tells you anything ;^^  so I decided to use the colored pencil version instead.  Of course, in the end, I ended up dramatically editing it digital-wise, but the fact that it started out as a colored pencil job made me happy xD  The little figures at the top, by the way, are Yukiko, Evan and Cory, as you could guess.  They were supposed to be representative of their interests - Yukiko loves making costumes and cosplaying, so she's admiring some a cloak or a dress that she made; Evan likes reading, so he's...reading, and Cory likes art, so he's painting ^^  I rather like the way the little figures turned out  ^^   The background I went a little crazy with.  I decided to try out a 'technique' that my art teacher in 7th grade opened my eyes to - she called it graffitti.  Basically, I took words that the three characters could identify with and randomly spread them about the bg (Some of the words, incase you were curious, include eccentricity, creativity, anime, manga, dnd, goth, dork, and artist.  There might be more, but those are the ones I can remember.)  Anyway, I think this comment is getting long enough ._.  I'll stop rambling now and let you guys comment ^.^v

this actually wasn't meant to be colored by me XD my best friend asked me to line art something so he can color it, but I didn't have enough patience to wait for him so I colored it too XP he will still color it though.

Deetris the fuzzy tail-sprouting cute killer monkey-girl
