    Great style you have with your linework, I really enjoyed it

    Maybe just spend a little more time thinking of where your line will go, or slowing it up a little.

    Great work though, keep it up

    I'd eat them Even though I'm more of a green apple man myself.

    Really, we should be doing a lot more painting at school. I miss it
    Good stuff.

    I like these apple studies. Oils? I love the chunky paint and the strange shape (it's more like a strawberry)
    I learned that there is something impressive about working on making many variation on one subject (like my factories) and that you might learn just as much as you would while trying different things.

    Maybe once you have the apple established, you could try tweaking the background color, to make the colors more apple-ing

    juicy:thanks, i finished the one with the snow, should photograph it one of these days! whats easycut? i like the printing a lot, it has that great vibe around itselfs, it really looks like it came out of wood! i like the roughness.

    karein: thanks as well, im really trying to do that at the moment. sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt. when i slow down, ive got to watch out for not making TOO boring lines

    yngling: its an honor you would eat my apple. i'll make a green one one of these days your so right about the painting, i hope we'll do it more often next year! i think im gonna do a lot of painting when school is done...

    hamsta: thansk about the apples, id love to eat apple-size strawberries! its just acrylics, when my acrylics stack is gone i think im gonna transfer to oils thanks a lot for the advice, i appreciate it!

    hmmm Utrecht got somee goood students!!
    love your work man, havent seen it before and you improved soo much..
    really like the freedom of you drawings its funn to look at.
    it reminds me a bit of John Mahoney and Bhanu

    you might wanna work on the way you fill your forms
    its sometimes chaotic and a bit messy what makes it flat
    try to make strokes of the direction wich the body go's
    i always try to draw 3D to avoid a flat look.

    try to do some simple form studies like apples and boxes

    hebben jullie ook model boetseren? dat werkt ook goed trouwes..
    het maakt je tekeningen sterker..

    veell succes verder en met de beoordelingen enzoo!!
    ik kom nog vaak langs om te kijken naar je updates

    groetjes...

    Are these effective as sketches? They are interesting as standalones, much more color than i would expect in a mining environments, and I like how you did the lights. The collage is also quite interesting.

    Saw you do this one (http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1242311334) in class. The cacao-paint works really nice here!

    See you at the werkschouw!

    NoŽ:thanks yeah its nice looking at very different stuff, chances are bigger that you see things you can use then when you just keep looking at stuff thats more like how you do it yourself is my experience.

    ej: thats funny, john mahoney and bhanu are artist im kinda jealous with! im glad you like it, and your right about the flatness, its something i struggle with, i kinda ignore the inside part sometimes! modelboetseren klinkt goed, maar dat hebben we helaas niet

    Hamsta: haha, i felt like it was kinda unclear and messy, so i called it sketches...

    yngling: i thought it worked quite well, but wasnt too sure if other people would see it as well, so good you think it works!

    HerrleerzeichenS: haha, thats good, your kicking me in the lazy butt when i dont update, good to hear people actually want me to update, woohoo so here you go:d

    some stuff for a school assignment and sketches!

    Really good work around here!
    It looks like you are trying hard to get the exact features on your face studies. Keep in mind the general head structure, and they will improve!

    hey i like your sketches. esp your lineart, which has these expressive curves. could be a bit sharper and closer to reality, but they sure are entertaining to look at

    Don' know if i've been here before, but in each case i'd like to say you have some fun pictures, the joy in drawing shows on them. That last painting looks promising ...

    Oh fuck those pen gestures are getting nice!
    Really loving them, don't stop doing them and make sure you make yourself sketch in as much as you can while keeping it loose.
    It's all about ACCURATE repetition, so try to get it as accurate as you can from first go.
    Keep going these and they'll just improve in quality while still at awesome speed.
    Lines are looking much cleaner now.
    Now what I want you to do (yeah Im ordering you about ) is to do sketches the same as those gestures but from mind. Yeah just 2 sheets a day, just like the life stuff but try to get them full character etc. These will help ya improve like hell.
    Keep at it

    Do you think you could do something more realistic? Maybe study someone who has a completely different style? Just as an exercise, nothing wrong with being unique

    eparts: thanks for dropping by! yup, im doing my best getting closer to reality,its hard to keep the looseness though!

    ej: thank you the one with the man with blue shirt is around 60x40cm, and the other one is twice as big

    walnut: which one do yo mean? good that you like it anyway

    lilnebo: haha, that gets in here and starts giving me orders thanks though, for some reason i listened to you tried it with gestures first, theyre nothing great, but better as what i did 1 year or so ago

    hamsta: hmmm...i could try sometime

    herrleerzeichens: ill be checking ur feet! did a face study today, it was kinda hard, i feel like losing personality when i spend so much time on something, but it probably comes with practice!

    ok, an update!
    i finished the painting with the blue shirt, and im not unhappy with it. did some gestures from mind, new sketches for an environment, in which somebody else has to make a dude, and a diamond. kinda hard.
    ehmmm, what else? oh yes, the selfportrait, hope you enjoy!

    and dont hestitate give me as much of useful information as after last update

    The last painting's done from a photograph, right? Anyway, I think the lighting is great! The marks are very well placed. I think you managed to do here what you wanted to achieve: it's more 'realistic' than your usual stuff but still has the looseness.

    The selfportrait, I kind of recognize your features in there, but I think the likeness could be better. I can see you tried to work in a more realistic way, with hatching and all (which I love to do, as you know), but if you want to retain the overall likeness and character of a person, the proportions are most important.

    What I'm trying to say is that in order to be 'realistic', you don't NEED crazy hatching and hours of tedious work. It's all about the accurateness. Being confident in your marks and placing them where they count. That's where your strength lies, I think.

    Having said that, I confess I absolutely LOVE the cupboard and lamp on the bottom page. The hatching works for you here, and the expressiveness of the line is amazing. Your observational sketching skills are booming thanks to your many studies.

    So eh, great work and 'enjoy your talent', mate!

    damn it Yngwie said it all while I was doing the dishes
    But I would just like to add one thing:
    I love the painting with the blue shirt, very nice folds and lights and darks and such One thing I feel though is that the white parts of the background are taking over the foreground, maybe it would feel a little more balanced when there wasn't white behind the head.. But anyways, I love the energy in the painting, well done!

    Love
    Marleen.

    thanks for the really nice replies both!!

    Yngwie: it was from a photo yes, and you are probably right, the best way for me to be more realistic might be to pay more attention to the proportions, and not THAT much about crazy hatching...interesting!

    Marleen: that was something i felt as well, i started without white behind his face, but then i messed up somewhere and decided to cover up with more white.

    omerta: i will!

    today wasnt a good example of hard work though. but theres other stuff that has to be done as well

    ok, 1 portrait. feel like im back into my place. down the foodchain got that feeling everytime when i try to paint a portrait. colors are just a guess, i do my brushstrokes over and over again. and even my sketch was wrong, should at least have good proportions! pfff. i should do some more of these tomorrow since its gonna be painting day
    any hints on skin coloring are more then welcome!
