Very first traditional drawing

my first traditional drawing. I started some chaos with alchemy, added plant and face details with myPaint and some color and blur with GIMP. (same parts as in the david revoy tutorial ; great tut by the way)
not very detailled but well… it’s my first ^^


This is actually not that bad for a first attempt, I’ve definitly seen worse. If you keep polishing it, pushing back the darks and pulling out highlights i think this could be a nice piece. If you want to get into traditional art a great book to start is Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain by Betty Edwards. She has some great excorcised to loosen you up and get you into the flow.
