So I drew Rin (First tablet drawing)

So this is what I drew on the 13th of March, because of reasons.
I recently got my tablet (Wacom Bamboo) and I decided to draw Rin first since she inspired me to pick up drawing again.
(Not attaching the image itself since it's quite large)

What do you guys think?
I'd really appreciate feedback; on what did I succeed? On what do I have room to improve?
Also if anyone has got any tips or tricks on tablet drawing (or on photoshop) be sure to post them!
Help on how to do shading of the hair properly would be ideal!

I think it's a good start for being unfamiliar with working with a tablet, but here are my tips.

From the way your strokes look, it's clear that you lack confidence in the marks you're making. More careful though before each stroke, visualization of the results will help the drawing look less forced.

Play around with different brush sizes. Use the right tools for the job, and most importantly, experiment.

Think carefully about the three dimensional shape of what you're drawing, your shading is very minute, and doesn't really suggest depth.

Keep it up!

EDIT: as for the hair, it really depends on what you're going for. It can be helpful to divide the hair into zones. It's hard to explain, but try thinking about what silhouette you want the hair to cut, sketch that out, then divide the hair into different areas which you feel represent "clumps" that go in roughly the same direction, and shade those separately, then blend. It takes planning and patience.

great job! You have so much talent! Keep posting and creating!

I love drawing , I'm by no means an excellent artist and I'm learning myself, but this is what has helped me the most.

my digital art paintings:

I draw in Clip Studio Paint software using my XP-Pen Artist 22R Pro Graphics Tablet . I used to really be hung up on not drawing directly on the screen, but after a 4 hour session, it became second nature.

Not too shabby for somebody that's just starting.
