Northern Lights
Digital drawing done in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

I always thought the Northern Lights looked amazing, just wanted to make a piece featuring them. Hope you guys enjoy.

Constructive critiques welcome! 
Looking to get some constructive feedback from some preferably experienced Digital artist out there. 

I have an intense hunger to learn and get better, so it would all be greatly appreciated! 

Whatever your thoughts are, let me know. Technique critiques, lighting, perspective, the feel of the picture, or just anything that comes to mind.

Chibi Naruto Rasengan
Chibi form Naruto... Starry skies, and good vibes. Have a great day everyone.
Program used: Photoshop CS6.
Okay guys... so March 2016 was my first time getting back into art after not drawing for 7 years. (Consumed by video games etc) I've been drawing pretty frequently since then, and I even started getting into digital artwork.

All I know currently is Photoshop, I've improved, but I feel short on utility with the program. I'm big on anime style art, but I also like drawing in multiple different styles. Photoshop just isn't cutting it for me currently I feel.

I'm also a mouse user, currently saving for a Wacom Intuos pro Large, but for now it's all I've got. I've seen amazing artwork done with Paint Tool SAI, with cel shading I like, that I haven't seen done in any other program that I know of.

Will SAI be a good investment as a mouse user? Or am I just not sharp enough in PS? Or am I just out of luck without a tablet, and I should focus on saving for one?

EDIT: Took the plunge and purchased Paint Tool SAI, didn't realize it was so cheap. I assumed it would cost as much as Photoshop!
