Wonderful sketches.

What tablet do you use? I would love to branch into digital art.

Thanks!
Currently I'm using Wacom Intuos 5 M, but if you are beginner, I suggest use Wacom Bamboo. It's quite cheaper and totally enough for digital drawing.

Thanks! I have heard it is difficult to learn how to draw fromk the tablet to the screen?... I was thinking of buying the Cintiq 24HD?

It depends, each person adapt differently. It cost me just couple of days to be used to it. And I don't really know people who is struggling with it.
Cintiq is overkill I think. It's just a tool after all, but very expensive one. Most of awesome art you see around the net is done mostly with Intuos. Even if you have that much money to burn, I suggest not to waste them on Cintiq, it is clearly mean only for professionals.
Best course of action I suppose it's start with Bamboo, then switch to Intuos, and if needed and when you are already making money from your art, only then buy Cintiq.

Okay thanks, I am worried how to learn how to use Intuos? did you take any course or learn from internet? I watched one of your videos on silent hill monster and it looks hard to master! Thanks for replying to me :)

How to use is a tricky question. I just tried and got it. It's not that hard as it seems, you just need right mindset and you'll get used to it quite fast. But painting skill on the other hand is entirely different matter.
It's just practice. If you go to the last page of my gallery, you'll see some very awful drawings. =) But I did a lot of work from that time, painting digitally and with pens and pencils on a paper. Still nowhere to be as good as I want, but I'm getting there.
I did study some Academic art at academy of art (well, that's poorly constructed sentence), I learn most basics via traditional mediums, and only later switched to mostly digital, but doing traditional sketches now and then. Traditional art school is essentialy a good thing, so if you have a chance I'd go there.
But if you interested in Digital stuff only - then I really advice you to visit this website [link] and watch all videos. There is a lot of good and basic stuff, which will help you to learn how to draw basic shapes and such.

Thanks for watching my speedpaint, there is nothing hard, really, especially when doing fanart, cause you don't need to think about design and such. And you are welcome! I hope I managed to help. =)

Oh, that's even better then, sorry didn't checked your deviant page before I wrote reply.
Then I'm sure that Intuos is a good choice and with quite good traditional skill, you'll do just fine digitally. Especially if you will dig Ctrl-Paint website.
Wacom tablets just a tool after all, skill is all that matters. It's not that different, same basics, just way more tricks and stuff to speedup process.
Thanks for kind words, I'll try to keep up with your expectations.

You've got a really unique way of sketching, I like it. Very well done.

What do you use after you sketch?

Thank you good sir!
Didn't get the question quite right? How do I use them, do you mean? Or what additional tool I'm using after sketching?
I don't use them for anything, it's just a practice. And I don't using anything else, it's all done on 1 layer and with 1 brush.

Ah, alright. Yeah, I was just wondering what the difference between the lighter and the darker lines was, but you answered that. I didn't realize this wasn't done with pencil :P

I doubt I'd post pencil work in digital gallery =)
This one sketches are very bad example about how to do lineart sadly.
