Yay! What kind of tablet is it? And you get used to it! I can't use a mouse now... the tablet is just too comfortable. :)

As far as the girl goes, her skin tones are kind of blah. Make it look realer! :)

Uhh well the name on the tablet says "Monoprice" if that means anything? My mom said that it got really good reviews and it's pretty professional. Yeah I've already gotten pretty used to it XP although it's weird because it knows when the pen is hovering and I'm not used to that haha

Yeah, I know. I was trying to hard to shade it and everything, but it came out really sketchy and blahh XD I'll try harder next time! Thanks :)

Hey Micki since you said you were going to post some art I checked out the forums! Actually I had no idea they had an art forum up this soon, if I had known I would've posted some of my stuff already xP lol I think this new YWS setup has me all confuzzled.

I really like her hair style here. I have a major hair fetish and I think the way you drew her bangs is really unique. It's my favorite part. Oh, and the red bow is a cute idea.

I think for the most part your skin shading was really good. It can be really hard finding the right technique to shade digitally, (i struggle with it a lot) and I think you're getting some of the basics. Some tips I use is setting the brush opacity a little lower so the strokes look smoother and softer. also, for finishing touches, I will set a new layer to Soft Light, grab the airbrush in white, and add highlights to the hair and skin. It gives everything a glow and makes things look a little less 2D.

If you want some picky comments, I'd say her right eye looks a little demonic because you left out the white highlight and it is all pupil xP. Next, the nose is a little too pointy for me and I think the tip should be rounder and more natural.

But oh my gosh, I am so excited to start seeing your digital genius ^_^ I know you will be great at this.
