I've been looking at all the drawings here at MT, and I just can't overcome that agitation in my stomach to show my drawings. I did find an old scanner that my uncle had, but I can't seem to find the driver for it on the net. So I went ahead and photographed them. Well, here they are:

Image
A drawing I copied of Sakura from Cardcaptor Sakura. I suck at copying. I'm surprised that it even turned out this good.

Image
A drawing by Matt I printed, traced and colored from the inking and coloring thread. Photobucket seems to have flipped it to the side. I used lavender, green, sky blue, dark blue, black and white. No watercolors. I take credit only for the coloring and nothing else.

Image
Just some character I was trying to draw that didn't turn out well(It never turns out well).

That's all for now. I probably won't be updating much, as I tend to erase most of the drawings I start as it doesn't turn out well. but since I now have an art thread, that might change. well, go ahead, criticize me.

--EDIT--

Oh, how could I forget this one?

Image
This is another drawing by Matt which he posted on the inking and coloring thread. It was my first attempt at digital coloring. Again, I take credit only for the coloring, everything else belongs to Matt.

well to start with, your non digital coloring is very good as shown by all three images.

The first (copied) drawing's eyes are not even remotely synced ( i.e it's like each one is looking at something different) which gives her a brainless expression which is just freaking me out a little.

not going to comment on the second drawing, seeing as how i already mentioned your coloring

the final drawing, being that it is the one drawing of yours though is actually not that bad ( my guess is that you are good enough to realize how bad you are, which is still none to terrible) but not flawless, her mouth is too close to her nose ( or too high up, could go either way) and her left arm has issue; Since her left side is closer to the viewer her arm shouldn't fall under her torso, and also her arm is a little too wide looking at the top/shoulder ( hard to tell with it under her torso though). Also the coloring seems a little rougher than the others, in particular the hair just seems... really can't pin it down but the coloring just seems bad.

as for your digital coloring (good thing i hit preview post or i would look like an idiot) it needs work, it feels more flat and messy ( the hari in particular seems to have smudges of a bunch of different colors in it with almost no real shading it feels like) not bad for a first try though

Ah, I see what you mean about the shoulders. Anything I draw below the neck never turns out right. as I already said, copying drawings is not my forte. As for the digital coloring, well, I'll just wait for more crit.

Not a bad start, Bardic pretty much said everything crit wise. Your traditional coloring is good and the digital coloring isn't bad for a first try though like bardic said it seems very flat. For the third picture i would say the hair looks a bit stiff.

Thanks for all the crit. I'm drawing a weapon right now(gonna take a long time), so sit tight.

--EDIT--
--Update--

Finished the weapon:

I've taken these in case you can't see it properly:

It's called Dryren, the stage 3 weapon of Filen's reincarnation in Medallion Masters. I know there isn't any shading, but I was limited to only 27 colors, out of which only 5 were used.

Whoa, your attention for detail and your eye for color are going to take you a long way if you keep it up! Rock on!

Sadly that's the only thing I have going on for me. I need to work a lot on pretty much everything else. I've drawn a ton of other weapons, but they were all drawn a year ago, and aren't as good as this one. I shall post them gradually.
