View Full Version : Still: Forest?

Well, I just bought myself my very first graphics tablet. It was the cheapest one I could find over at Future Shop but I'm going to school next year so its all I can afford. Anyway I'm really loving it, this is my first sketch with it, not too sure exactly where I am going with the composition but I figured maybe you guys could help me through it. The terrain and sky are just there for reference, they will both be painted over by the time this image is completed. This is my first 2D still so I could really use some C&C as I don't have any experience in this field.

I bought an e3works Stylo tablet. It cost about $80 Canadian which works out to less than $50 American. I have to admit I was really impressed with it, it's small compared to a lot of other tablets out there but it suits my purpose as an amateur very well.

WOAH! <$50 US?! How big is it?
I really like the bark. I think you should start paingint some ground, and cover up lots of the roots, add some shadow there. What are you trying to do?

@tevih - The tablet I bought is 12.7 x 9.52cm and I believe the resolution is 1000 x 1000px. I'm not exactly sure yet "what I'm trying to do" this is basically just an exercise on learning how to use my new toy ;).
Here is a small update, I have the foreground basically laid out now. Obiously still a long way to go, haven't nailed down exactly what I am going to put in the center of the image... I'm open to suggestions ;). Also I'm not really satisfied with the leaves on the tree but I don't really know of a better way to paint them so if anyone has any tips on that I'd love to hear them.
