I agree with Tarren in that you should try to practice proportions more and keep working on gesture as well. Keep up the good work!

Hello MJB! I would suggest trying out gesture. It can really help you improve the flow and movement of your figure drawings and prevent them from being stiff. I hope this tip helps!!

Hi @adri_art76 It will help to get some requirements out as the category can be very large... Do you need it to have a stylus/pen, or be compatible with one, or touch? What software do you use (just Photoshop) and will it be Windows-based (or Mac/Linux)? What size do you prefer (13" with external screen, 17")? Do you also want to do other things like productivity, gaming? Do you do complex or large art, or just general 'digital' pictures? Does it need to be lightweight for travel? With these questions answered we can narrow down the list a lot :)

No, it doesn't need to have a stylus/pen since I already own a tablet. I intend to use programs such as Photoshop and Blender. I am open to Windows or Mac/Linux as well. I would prefer 15"-17" screen. I am not planning on using it for gaming. It doesn't matter to me if it is a bit bulky.

Humm, if you go with conventional laptop+tablet way, you can pretty much choose anything you like. Nowadays computers easily get enough graphics power to do drawings and paintings, even 3D works that are not that heavy. So typically you don't need a dedicated graphics card. I have a Surface Pro 6, been using it for like 2 years or so, works great for painting. If budget is a concern, I would recommend a Surface Go 2, It's likely to be much cheaper than a conventional laptop+tablet combo, and it runs typical desktop softwares. Surface Pen is not _as good_ as wacom, but I find it's not to a point where it causes any problem to me. Only downside is the MS keyboard. They don't last... mine were broken recently. A usb one or a bluetooth one can get you going. Or, if you don't absolutely need to take it everywhere you go (as if you use a laptop for drawing, bringing a tablet is a hassle), you could look into some small boxy computers like Intel NUC or similar stuff, and you can then have a 24+ inch FHD screen with great colour range with almost the same budget as a conventional laptop. In this case you are gonna need a tablet. Or, you could look into using Wacom One (that has a screen) and connect it to your phone for drawing, that way you don't even need another computer at all.

I fortunately already have a tablet but I do have a laptop that is on its last legs. I want to see what are my options before I make a decision. This is my first time hearing of an Intel NUC before so I will give that a look .

I love your underwater comps! My favorites are B and E because the giant fish and great white shark help your images in terms of scale and really help in terms of composition as well.

Hello! I would suggest doing some warm ups doing various different lines (long,short, thin, thick etc.) that will definitely improve your line work over time. I would also suggest to go over the fundamentals in order to understand the structure and proportions of the head. Other than that it is a lovely piece!

Great work! I would suggest practicing on line weight to help your sketches flow more better and to keep practicing gesture. Hope this helped :)

Hi Eva ! I think taking a class can be very helpful to you in order to learn faster instead of figuring it out on your own. In terms of digital programs, it really doesn't matter what program you use if you are a beginner. There are a lot of free digital programs to choose from, but if you have some money you can purchase Clip Studio Paint( you pay only once) or you can absolutely go with Photoshop.

Your lights need highlights for sure and I think it would help to post your reference as well in order to see if proportions are correct.

Hi everyone, I'm Dan, from Australia. Pretty excited about this platform, hopefully able to get into the community and learn a lot here (and get me out of the 'I'll just practice the fundamentals more' rut). I have an obscure subject interest in wasps and other insects, which makes it difficult to learn but also enjoyable. I really like traditional art (probably because I suck at digital art :p), particularly charcoal/pastel, though unfortunately I only recently discovered this wonderful media!

Your art really shows things in motion which is very hard to do. I love the subtle color you add in your work!

Hello! Hope you all are doing well and are also super excited for Proko 2.0. I'm from Germany and my art is mainly focused on realism. My mediums are graphite, coloured pencil, watercolour pencil, watercolour and airbrush. Arcylic and Oil are my next mediums to tend to :) I still am bound to reference pictures but I hope I'm learning a lot here about gesture and anatomy so I can draw more from my owm inagination :) Looking forward to be part of a wonderful community!

Your bee and owl painting are my absolute favorites! I especially love the color for the bee and flower.

Hello, finally a new art community to join and better my illustration skills. Thanks Stan. I'm a creative art director and I work in the advertising industry. I want to better my story boarding techniques. I'm enamored with the golden age illustrators but I have a special fondness for Sargent and Velazquez. Looking forward to growing with the community.

I totally agree with you on Eliza's art. It is something I want to aspire to with my work as well.

I think that looking at artists that you love can help you out in finding out what your purpose for your art is. Whenever you have trouble with knowing what to draw, it can help to try out a class that you are interested in learning and see how you feel about the subject.
