noone starts in a bang im sorry to say.
it took me nearly 4 years of attemps, but everytime i ended pissed or depresed, but then some friend gave me some suggestions and now look at my art!
it all depends on triying and do bunch of variants to see wich one is better.

I will move this to the more appropriate topic for you, Vernsim. You will get a lot more replies there.

For me, I started out with chalk and kept using it till I figured them out. Then, when I wanted more detail work, I went to the Prisma pencils and kept practicing with them. Now I am on the acrylic kick and will be practicing a lot with those.

Best advice I can give is once you create your sketch, scan it and print out several copies to practice on. Once you get the hang of the medium you are using, use it on your original sketch, or just leave it be on a sketch copy.

Good luck!

I was the same way, but for me, it was fear. I was afraid my cool drawings would be ruined if I made a mistake and colored them wrong, so I was all black and white.


My suggestion is when you get ready to color, have another sheet of paper to color on first, to decide what shades, mixtures, and ect you like best. As I now work mainly with computers, I can't help you much more...sorry.

I color all mine in photoshop.. except for the odd time when i get out the pencils..

One thing with art is never worry about buying the more expensive tools.. A pack of pencils for a dollar will look crap compared to a pack for $10 ..

Well..what do you use to color? I know some art programs can be really hard to use..
