1. Be respectful: If you don't like something don't look, there is no need for you to be rude to other artists.

2. No Mature Content: As you all know, we no longer accept mature content. This includes excessive blood and gore and nudity. The only nudity allowed is in our anatomy section, if it's not an anatomy lesson or reference then it's not permitted in the group.

3. No BASE Art: This group is all about bettering your art skill so from now on, we do not allow base art. Try taking a look at our anatomy folder or ask any of the contributors if you need help with anatomy.

Hello! Im pretty new this website in general, though I did create this account about a year ago... but because of seconds thoughts I sorta refused to share and stopped/limited drawing. But now i've dedicated myslef to start again and willing to take any advice (Advice as in fundementals please!) from anyone! I've also recently bought this nice looking Intuos tablet, I practiced everyday by drawing lines, shapes and circles but I think I had enough of that. I have no clue what to do next. Well, thats pretty much it!

Welcome back to deviant art and welcome to BeginnersUnite!

Are you good with anatomy? If not, I recommend starting in our anatomy folder ---…
In that folder you'll see a lot of studies (nose, arms, legs, body shape, etc.) but you will also find some very good tutorials that help you with drawing in shapes and in proportion.
If you are already good with anatomy and just want some tips for digital drawing, I suggest you look through our "Drawing-Tutorials and References" folder ----…
In there you can find tutorials about coloring hair digitally, creating line art, using programs such as Paint Tool Sai and Photoshop and I'm pretty sure there's some in there for Gimp users as well. There's also tutorials about how to color eyes and backgrounds.
Overall there are a wide variety of tutorials featured in our group. If you're looking for a more specific starting point let me know. I'll help you as best as I can.
Misadventurous-Jay Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2014
Thanks! Seems that i'm a bit rusty now so I should probably start on anatomy again and try to regain my knowledge on the fundamentals first before I begin anything. I'll be sure to check all them out!
sketch7778 Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
You're welcome :) Anatomy is always a good place to start (I'm not good with anatomy at all :XD:) but I hope it helps, if you have any other questions feel free to stop by and ask us.
sketch7778 Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Sure, your giveaway has been added to the group's home page :)
Anything else, please let me know.
