I would use a smaller brush stroke for your lines. You are just starting in photoshop?
How old are you?

Is there anything you would like to know?
What do you think you could do better?

There are many of us who are willing to help you learn this program if you need to.

As for your first drawing, I think the eyes are a bit too close together, but you can work on those things.
Keep it up!

Glad to see you posting.

I am 110% willing to learn every bit of the program.

thanks for the feedback

visit this thread: http://www.cgtalk.com/showthread.php?t=196480 , you can find some great tutorials here, although i didn't find one that explains photoshop step by step.

My advice to you, since you don't have a tablet is to simply draw on paper first and scan it into photoshop.
Before scanning you could outline your drawing with lets say a fineliner, make sure there are no openings, in photoshop you now can select parts of the drawing with the magic wand tool, in a new layer start painting (i use different layers for every colour i use).

Study work from other artists (and there's a lot of top notch on this site) and try to figure out how they might did it.

I hope this will help you out a bit

Wow major improvements, wonderful to see such an aspiring artist :)

My advice to you is to concentrate on volume, form and weight and _not_ details. That is a very common mistake. Without the correct volume, form and weight the details will look poor anyway.

But you're on your way, keep us updated.

Thanks Apan, I want to know what you mean by Volume, Form and Weight. Thanks

I dunno if you've seen the Making of Metal Gear Solid 2 that comes with the game, you know how they draw, thats my mission, when I learn how they drawn that, I'll be Very very happy

anyway

thanks ;)

Advice, a free one:
Before you start with PS, get a pencil and blank paper and start doing sketches. Draw everything you see. Get drawing classes, get good teacher who will learn you what is what, learn human anatomy. Few years later, hopefully, you will start working on your own style of drawing/painting, and may be then you will be able to do something close to the style of MGS. But remember one, dont jump on big stuff, just start with the little ones ;) Good luck!
