another drawing

It's been a while but I was finally motivated to draw again tonight. But I decided to play around in Art Rage instead of real paper.
I bought Art Rage just after starting Suzi Blu's class so I haven't had very much time to get to know it, so I was excited to try drawing digitally and seeing what I could do!
And so my first experiment...
Don't get me wrong I have opened Art Rage a few times and scribbled a few faces, but I had no idea what settings to use or how to blend colours or anything. Tonight I had a quick look in the help section before starting and I was much happier with what I accomplished.
But OMG my arm hurts. I had my pen set on the highest sensitivity so I was really pushing hard sometimes to get pressure on the page. I think I need to adjust that next time!

Please let me know what you think! I went for a little more realism this time and I know it's far from perfect but I like her!

Drawing with Suzi Blu!

I have been eyeing off Suzi Blu's 'Petite Dolls' class for ages now
and last week I finally took the plunge!!And I'm loving it! I'm only up to lesson 2...but I am so happy with what I've made so far.I had no idea I could draw so well!
I am now hoping to get some soft coloured pencils soon so I can blend better. My Derwent Artist's are just too hard to blend the colours nicely. So I'm trying to decide between the Prismacolors (which Suzi recommends but are hard to get here) or the new Derwent Coloursofts. If anybody has any advice for me it would be appreciated!
So here is Suzi's class if anybody is interested...

and my work so far...

GSO Blog!
