My latest drawings
Been trying out a few new techniques and I'm really liking the results.
I use Photoshop CS5 and Gimp 2.6

Please excuse the backgrounds, I'm still trying to get a grip on those :lol:

Thoroughbred yearling

Thoroughbred doing a timed work out

Sketched this up during class

Thoroughbred yearling lines, haven't got around to coloring it in yet
What I'm recently working on

Haha yeah I know, it's mostly racing and what not but it's my passion.
So what do you guys think?

They look great. Only thing I can critique on (because I got the same when I first started doing ones with colour as opposed to black/White) is to make your highlights/shadows stand out a bit more. Like my art teacher constantly says, darks can be darker, and lights can be lighter.
I also really like your lines. I need to work on mine because my hand'w shaky on my tablet and they end up way too sketchy and not good enough for colouring. D:

Good job. The bottom one could maybe use some lighter areas in the horse's highlights, just so it has more dimension to it, but otherwise nice. And the good thing about working in digital media, is "Save As" and "Undo" are always at the ready, unlike paper or paint!

Ha yes the two reasons why I love it!!
Another one I did today:

I think I'm liking this semi-realistic cartoon way.

These are awesome! Amazing i could never ever do one thats for sure :D

I'm 20

Thank you Tess! Its taken be 4 years to get where I'm at with digital art and I've still got a ways to go!

I'm taking the advice given in this thread and have thorn it into the next drawing I've started and so far I'm really liking the outcome! Just wish backgrounds didn't scare me so much.
Because a background makes the whole piece and I'm not totally in sync with them yet :/

Here's the new piece I finished with some tips thrown in:

It's defiantly hard trying new things once I'm used to a style but I'm trying :)

Anymore tips on shading and backgrounds are welcomed!!
