Hey folks! I'm a new(ish) illustrator and i'm wanting to get some of my work completed digitally. Firstly, i haven't been to university yet, i am on a Foundation Degree in Art and Design. However i have a huge love for anything digital and i have loved doing some small scale stuff with my tablet. However, as i am starting to settle into my own 'style' i am struggling. Everything i plan to turn digital i draw and ink by hand. However i really struggle when it comes to turning it into my illustrations. I will quickly link a few bad photos of some of my sketchbook.

I'm struggling to get these dots into my work for some reason, everything digital just looks so flat and rubbish compared to in my book. Heres a picture of one of my coloured digital works which i consider to be almost 'finished' Image 2013-05-24 at 12.38.03 AM.png http://img707.imageshack.us/img707/9643/aopsm.jpg I'm really struggling, especially with the second, i find that colouring is the hardest thing possible, and i really struggle with it! Outlining i find i am not as bad, however i still struggle! What i'm after, is some recommendations for things to try and practice that would suit my work, whether it be tutorials or the like it would be fantastic! Thank you so much!
