Attempt at digital art

I was honestly just dared to do this by a friend, else I would never even want to attempt. Anyways, feel free to judge and maybe offer your criticism, specially those that really do digital art

So what I used was Paint tool SAI which my friend happily gave me a while ago. I did this on my laptop and I did not eve want to attempt anything with symmetry so I hope this would be good enough

Guidelines are needed, like how I do with all my sketches, although I don't even know if this falls in proportion at all. I just based on anime ;-;

Then without the guide layer

I was told that I should work by layers and that the number of layers you put in don't really matter but since I usually do digital art, I kind of forgot about layers but eventually, i figured out that cleanup is easier with the layers so it really helps

With added layers, I slowly added layer details as well. Now it doesn't look that bad (UwU) but I'm pretty sure I still suck at this

He looks like he took a beating, honestly. But that's how the colors I've been blending turned out

So now this is my finished attempt. It doesn't look that bad, right? Again, feel free to just tell me what else I should be mindful of in the case that I ever attempt to do digital again. Thank you!

I guess it means you need to practise 10 years 24/7 and it's easier to have the drawing in your head already? 🤔 Perhaps @ananas can explain it?

It doesn't look bad at all on the contrary. I would have given up after picture one. Actually I did. I never understood the layer idea and I do not l ow how to draw a line that makes sense or which I could use. 😕

From what i saw... a new paper layer is added, if i relate it to traditional art but that paper layer will still show all the changes you did on the previous layers plus you can add details to it and it will not make such big changes

So actually you cover up the first drawing with a new paper and use the good lines and add some new ones?

Ohh the art is a big thumbs up already, it's just actually the excess lines that you can remove to make it better. I started with using mouse too, I used Illustrator/Photoshop. I suggest you delete the sketch layer so it would not show up on your final artwork. Doing it with mouse is really really hard hahaha. It took me almost 5 hours or so for one artwork! Hahaha but you can do it😍

I'd like to suggest some fun features for you to mess around with; easy ways to make a drawing look "better", but you're using different software than me.

Yah, layers help in cleanups. I tried the free Paint that came with Windows, and I didn't do that well there. It is not that easy to draw and paint digitally, just need to get used to the stylus on the smooth surface. Using a mouse is even harder. What did you use?

Mousepad is not easy to use too, I reckon? I think digital art tools are not easy to control on the smooth surfaces. But I haven't tried much though. Do you like it?

It was hard but i can't compare it to when i use a mouse because i don't have a bluetooth or usb mouse to use. I don't really like doing digital but i did enjoy exploring the software
