    I was really surprised to see that there isn't a thread on here about digital art... maybe it was old and I missed it? Anyway, I've posted a few of my drawings and paintings, and I'm a little shy about showing more of them off... I know my style isn't everyone's cup of tea. I've gotten some pretty harsh criticisms of my art when I was a student, that really hurt my feelings (I'm aware that I'm not the best at what I do, but I'm sensitive because it's a passion of mine), so I'll politely explain that I'm not looking for a critique... I'm looking to share my interest with others who might enjoy it, and encourage others to share their own works :blush:
    I do two different styles; more traditional drawings that are basic and have bold colors, and digital paintings. I use a Huion Kamvas tablet with a stylus and I draw in Photoshop. I've only been drawing this way for about a year. I'm much more experienced with traditional drawing and painting but I feel like they come out nicer digitally.
    I do a lot of self-portraits, because I'm not a selfie person and I don't have a lot of photos of me, and I'm more comfortable expressing myself with art (my drawings are as accurate to my appearance as possible though, imperfections included... I don't try to draw myself as a thin person, because that would be dishonest). I also draw animals, mostly dogs, since dogs are my Special Interest. But I draw cats, birds, and horses too, I just don't have a good example of any of those to share at this point in time. I generally draw from memory but sometimes I use references.
    I'll stop myself before I ramble too long again, although it looks like I already have... :confounded:
    Here's my art!

    Here are a few I did for a friend who breeds Border Collies...

    Here are some self-portraits, and a painting of me and my best friend... and I do actually have freckles! They just don't look quite like that, lol... I didn't know how else to draw them without making them look like pimples. My eyebrows really are darker than my hair, that's not a mistake. I already posted a couple of these but I'm including them here because they're still artwork.

    Digital art reminds me of interpolated rotoscoping like this a-history-of-the-art-of-rotoscoping-3.jpg

    @crewlucaa_ , these are great!
    My own digital drawing skills are not great but I love to do it anyway. I had a wacom tablet for many years but when it died I couldn't replace it. My Samsung is almost as good, good enough for my skill any way.

    Most of my stuff lately has been for album covers. I'm really into digital collage/manipulation, but sometimes I draw a thing or two.

    I've got a couple things: An entry for a Halloween art contest in one of my other online groups, and my Tumblr Header. I do have one of a Space Scene but it's too large to fit here, however it's in one of my Albums here on the Forums (in the Media section).

    I've recently learnt that I quite enjoy drawing on the computer, only been giving it a proper go for the last 2 days but this what I've done so far, they're based on pictures I took in South Africa...

    This is the one I'm currently working on, not too far off from finishing but spending a lot more time on it than the first two.

    Finals (2).png

    Digital corrections/enhancements on drawings are kind of fun. Does this count as a digital drawing? Because I draw like a lobotomized orang-outan. If you haven't guessed the theme of this drawing is "college finals."

    This was sketched with black ink on paper using a cheap but effective fountain-pen that was included with the ink.

    Digital programs used: MS Word for adjustment to contrast, Photos to crop it out.

    Girl drummer (original character, not supposed to be a real person… although she looks a lot more like me than I intended :confused:)
    And closeup of details on her face, which I’m pretty happy with!
