Marvelous by Annie13
Marvelous
I must say, as intimidating as drawing digitally is, this one came out much better than I expected.  The background is just simple shapes, but that's because I am more concerned with drawing characters at the moment than I am working on my background skills (of which I admittedly have none)

Here, we have two Marvelous ladies from Marvel Comics.  On the left, we have Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel.  On the right, Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel (and formerly Ms. Marvel).  

Kamala is an Inhuman, meaning that she is a human infused with Kree DNA that made her gain super powers when it was activated.  The powers vary from Inhuman to Inhuman (kinda sounds like Mutant powers, doesn't it?).  For Kamala, that power is shapeshifting.  She especially likes to play with her size, and usually by expanding individual body parts.  Hence her "Popeye arm." Kamala is a new hero to the Marvel U, eager to be a force for good while keeping her identity secret.

Carol is superpowered because of an accident infusing her with Kree DNA, but not in the same process as an Inhuman.  She has a variety of powers, including flight, super strength, energy projectiles, energy absorption, and even more.  She also is very experienced; she was a hero as Ms. Marvel for years, and before that was a member of the US. Air Force.  She recently adopted the Captain Marvel title, and that's one thing that prompted Kamala to adopt the Ms. Marvel moniker for herself out of respect and fandom.

This piece was fun.  I may do more on it, but, for now, I think I'm done.  Perhaps if I ever want to venture into the realm of coloring, I will start here.  For now, I just want to get used to drawing with the tablet and determine if the purchase was worth it.  After this experience, I'm feeling positive.

Marvelous Sketch by Annie13
Marvelous Sketch
Working on a little something.  Got Photoshop on the new tablet, learning the ropes of it, but most importantly, drawing. I need to do that most of all.  Anyway, I am pretty happy with how it's coming so far.

Here we have the second attempt at drawing on the new tablet.  I have to admit that when I try to go digital, it feels like I am leaping into the deep end of an Olympic swimming pool and feel like I am expected to swim with the pros.  I don't want to feel that way. I want to somehow find the place where I can be trying to improve and learn new things, but not become cripplingly intimidated and discouraged.  I don't have very high hopes or aims, but I would still like to get back in the good habit of drawing.  

Anywho, here is Anne the Wotch chilling out on her school's front sign.  I don't know why, I just felt like drawing her sitting, and that came to me.

First Surface Sketch by Annie13
First Surface Sketch
This is the first sketch I did using my new Surface Pro 3, using the program Drawpile.  I wish that I just could instantly feel comfortable with digital creation, but that was part of the reason for getting this thing.  At the very least, I would like to be able to comfortably doodle on this this, right?

I left it unfinished because  I figured out too late that I was drawing on the wrong layer.  Also, as stupid as this sounds, I didn't realize the canvass extended further down, so the legs were left incomplete.  Still, I started to get the hang of it as I went on.  Maybe the next attempt can even make it out of the scraps.

Well, I took the plunge late last night and ordered a Surface Pro 3, a tablet rated very highly for drawing.  I'm really hoping that it helps me get back into the habit.  The trick will be that it is a transition to digital drawing, something I still only have limited experience with.  And that's entirely on me; some very nice people have lent me drawing tablets over the years, but I've always had a bad time with the disconnect between looking at a screen and not the pen.  However, with a tablet like this, that problem should be gone.

I'm excited!  I am also a bit nervous, because I know the "buy something expensive and you will SURELY use it" line of reasoning does not necessarily work.  (The elliptical behind me is proof of that...)

Still, the convenience of the tablet should really help, as sometimes the stupidest reasons are what stop me from drawing.  Having it immediately there, already digital, should really help--IF I can learn to get used to the feeling.

So, hey, here's hoping, right?

Wow, thanks for the watch! :love: 

I know it's been a while. I don't suppose you still have that picture where a bunch of OC heroines have been turned into candy for villains? It was on Argo Forg's now defunct website ages ago.

Oh gosh, I might have it somewhere, but sadly I kinda doubt it.  I sure hope I can dig it up again, though!
