I recently decided I wanted to learn to draw. I can't take any classes until later this year, but I've been practicing on my own. I just today made my first complete work. It still needs improvement, and added detail, but it's only a first draft. I'm still proud of it. I figured it would be good to get feedback from others, as that's one of the best ways I've found to improve. so here is my picture, Sucked In
I used the sphere stencil only to refine the circle I had already made and to help the shading of the globe, and the black hole was done with a mix of the oil brush, air brush, crayon, and knife tools. the background is the chalk tool with black airbrushing over it to make it darker. I didn't even realize how starry it looked until half way through, but I like it now that I have. I really don't like how the bottom is blank like that, but I didn't want to clutter the image with something random that would take away from the original image.
It may not look like the image is in a low quality setting, because I had to re-save the image as a jpeg with lower quality so the file qouldn't be too big to upload here.
EDIT: yes I realize the planet has a northern ice cap but not a southern ice cap. I am fixing that in my next version, as well as all fo the things you guys suggest.
