lol....Thank you greatly JM

...My background is in figure studies, but I never painted before, so I had my difficulties in colours and tones

btw JM: That avatar is just so funny, it looks like its speaking (man now I sound creepy ) *runs and hides*

Heh, they're not the very first of mine, I don't think I have those around any longer. These are, however, rrrreaaallllly old and early. Probably around seven years old.

still very skilled back then, Linda! The dude with the heavy eyelashes looks quite cool.

His hand reminds me of something quite off topic:
Most boys have a shorter pointing finger than their ringfinger.. and most girls got their pointing finger longer than their ring fingers.. That discovery really scared me..

which leads me to a question.. was that on purpose? It looks like the character has a longer pointing finger than his ring finger.. making him the androgynious human? or just nothing :P

My first dooduhls...:S

Chaot1c1, I guess I'm in for some figure studies too then.
Lol, I did take care to find the right spot. It's sort of looking at what I type, kind of creepy yeah......ahem...

OK, I've recently dug my very first ones. I dno't really have that many actually. And even less finished normal works. I'm green, really, really, green. And for starters I'd like to say that I don't only paint women for the shear lust I have. I never liked backgrounds, too complex and not enough emotional content(in my works then). Female bodies imo are easier when it comes to muscles vs. fat, they're smoother and generally seem more blanced when it comes to easthetics. It's a good way to learn, , I'm not kidding. Anyway...


so this is the very first wacom, saved for sentimental reasons,


And this one is with compensation for bad mapping of the wacom's surface , my newest best buddy wacom, , yep, didn't watch the screen very well.



And I've also found my very first 3d model. I still like it actually.




And this, just to show that with diligence there should be improvement, was the third ever. Without colour of-course because the second failed miserably.

I don't think I know a single girl with a longer index finger than the ring finger : Are you quite sure about this? Maybe Swedish people are different, ha ha.

Anyway, thanks :] And, nah, not done on purpose, I had no idea that this was the case - as I've never really, uh, noticed it. My index finger is shorter than the ring finger.

Linda, the topmost portrait reminds me of hera! Is it hera? So you've always had a great eye for colours I see. I find them very beautiful, only the last one doesn't seem to fit in. Less colours than I'm used to of you?

Cool stuff to see everybody! Eparts, I like the portrait of the lady band member.

Are you quite sure about that? I've never heard of that before, nor have I seen anything that could possibly prove. My index finger is shorter than my ring finger, all of my friends index fingers are shorter than their ring finger.

hehe, linda.. it doesnt really work on this forum i guess.. just reacted on his fingers by some reason.

..it depends on how you hold your hand up and see.. If your hand is flat, sometimes the index finger is longer, if you look at it the other way, having your fingers bent over.. its different. whaha!
there is no major difference.. I only say this to freak kids out or something.

Aw, my very first digital piece got lost in a computer crash... but I think I'll have it backed up on a CD. I'll have to go through my (huge) backup-disc collection and find it. Anyways, it's a.. horse.. in golden-y colors. Crazy enough, my first digital piece that I drew with a mouse was also a horse.. weirdness. I love horses, hehe

Oh, and Linda - this reminds me... I happen to have one of your old works on my computer (the signature is the same like the one on your man-with-sparkly-feathers-around-the-eyes one) - it's a blue/purple fairy with purple glowing eyes (something like Night Elves from Warcraft). I remember a friend sent it to me a whiiiiiile ago, when we were drooling over digital art and fairies. He said "Oh dear, this is gorgeous, I doubt it's done with a computer!" before he sent it to me. Oh, how wron was he! XD

Would you mind if I posted it here?

Wow, you guys have a lot nicer first digital tries then I do. When I started I had almost no drawing or painting background at all, I think it shows a bit too.

The smudge tool was the first "friend" I found in paint shop pro. A couple of these I've taken and re-worked them at higher resolution later on and was fairly happy with how they came out. Here are the originals pre-rework, they're ranging from 3-5 years old, I believe:





And that became this after a few weeks of working on and off:



I'm a bit new to the forums, hope I'm doing this right!

Actually, it's supposed to be that women generally have their first finger and ring finger the same length, if the fingers are held straight and together, while men generally have one (I forget which) longer than the other. But it doesn't have to be, since it's down to the amount of testosterone you have in your system while in the womb, or something like that.
(You can check it by measuring with a ruler from base of finger to tip, palm up, making sure to keep the ruler centred. If you really want to know and your fingers aren't cooperating )

Oh, and just to be certain - by ring finger I mean third finger, not middle finger.

I also have some significantly older pics of Enayla's sitting on my hard drive (bwahahaha) but I assume you no longer have them any more for a reason...

And as for me, if you have a look here you can see my first four digital paintings ever. (I'm actually amazed that site is still up. I moved homepages years ago). Warning: it is Geocities, so it might get bandwidth exceeded quickly. They were all done in Painter, iirc.

Gotta watch out with those Geocities pages Kalorlo, they can hide on you Awhile back, I had a geocities site I made, around 1998 maybe? it would disappear for a month or two at a time, and I think its -finally- disappeared for good (yes, it was really really cheesy looking). At least you've got some good looking work there! Have to wonder if Geocities will be the first online archealogical site, digging for remains of the past...

Unfortunately, I never delete any of my old work, I usually just keep tacking on new Harddrives and have a few archival CD's and DVDs... I was searching for some older work then what I just posted, most of it was attempts at 3d with Rhino3d, maybe bryce on a few. I found these..erm.. "gems" This stuff predates my attempts at painting by at least a few years, 1998 apparently.





I remember that it took nearly half an hour to open up that mech in Rhino 3d, and hours to render out a single still. I think I still have pieces of that Packard Bell Pentium 100 laying around somewhere... Ahh the old days!

This one was mine, done over 3 years ago. I had used digital before that when I worked in games to paint textures, or sketch concept art, but never a full painting. This one was the first time I did a full painting entirely in digital (Used Photoshop 6). I really didn't like painting in Photoshop, so after this painting, I started using Painter in conjunction with Photoshop.

hi guys... my 1st digi-painting's my recent entry to M&S challenge. Though I dabble with painting as a hobby, anything digital work I did before are either in CAD/Revit or StudioViz(Im in arch'l field). Until I bought a wacom and I was like, wow, didnt really thought its that easy to sketch or paint. I dont think I need to post the image here though .

Cheers guys!
