    Malakuko: Thank you kindly. The story will probably center around a dukes court, seen through the eyes of a musician, but more on that later... I meant that the way I usually sketch with pencil is in very small format, where a small mark can imply a lot. On a larger scale, this is less so, and I am more confronted with the limits of pencil. It is predominantly a linear instrument that can't handle large areas of tone as well. For that I rather use chalk like Conté, which has some of the best of both. But that's all just a matter of preference.

    To the PSes: I don't care much for soccer, but it's a pity yeah. About the digital technique, it's not that exciting. When working in PS I used to start from a middle grey tone and work up towards white and down to black from that. It makes the values more manageable.


    Liam Harvey: Reactions like that are always a treat I'm glad you like what I do, I'll keep doing it!

    Capital G: Those are so much fun to do. And especially for you, I present:

    ...more sketchbook pages! During the 3 weeks of holiday I have just come back from, I have attempted to flesh out the concept for my little graphic novel project. Lots of writing and loose ideas but no solid plot yet.

    It will be more political in nature, and centers around a possible betrayal to take place during a court feast, but mostly it will be about preventing it from happening. It's like a crime story, but the crime has yet to be committed, or might not be committed at all. So far the vague descriptions...

    Here's some pages with text and sketches, some more elaborate than others. They help me visualize the world I'm thinking up. I'm especially pleased with the row of tiny people, that was mighty fun to draw.

    Ok, I'll divide this in manageable portions. During my holiday I also found some time to paint. Not much, but some. I took another shot at plein-air painting.

    The first time, I was forced to stop mid-session because of heavy rain messing up my work. Unfortunately, it would continue to rain for many days to come, so there went my plans. To make up for this, I painted the towels from the bungalow I stayed in. Then I went on to do some colour studies after reading a fantastic book, written by Johannes Itten, about colour theory. They were just coloured squares, so I won't bore you with that, but I do recommend that book to anyone.
    At last I found an opportunity to paint outside again, so I did another plein-air. I worked on it for little over an hour, before the park I was in closed and I had to quit. Oh the hardships I had to endure

    All were done in acrylics.

    I'll conclude this holiday update with assorted studies in Conté (and one in ink) from observation. I took a trip to the zoo, went to a castle, and saw lots of trees...

    edit: forgot to add the castle...

    Yum. tasty pictures!

    thanks for sharing man, it's quite motivating.




    but i may be pointing fingers if i keep drawing when it is far more sensible (and healthy?) to be sleeping.

    but seriously, excellent work. Dont stop.

    Really nice batch of updates, they betray shitloads of skill.Interesting way of using complimentary colours in that forest painting, and the tree drawings have a pleasant vibe too. Always fun to pop into this SB for sure!

    Liam Harvey, Walnut: Thanks a lot, guys

    Today, I took my 1/2 scale anatomy model and a scarf, and posed it sitting on a drum. I started out with a digital painting, that was well underway when suddenly, my model collapsed right in front of me. In a very awkward way, too. So, I left the digital piece the way it was, and made a quicker charcoal drawing of the poor skeleton. My charcoal handling has become a bit rusty...

    love your subtlety in handling trees. you have a great way of suggesting form. they are by far the hardest thing for me to draw!

    Thanks all!

    Well well, quite a break I've taken here. School has been one hell of a ride, and there have been some very unfortunate personal circumstances, so I must admit I almost forgot about you guys...

    I'll remedy some of that by posting a few pieces from a while back. I have worked on a fantasy cardgame along with some other aspiring artists. It was pretty much a hobby project but we invested serious amounts of time and effort in it. The plan was to get it published in some way, but so far we haven't had much luck with that. Ah well. It was a great experience anyway.

    I did the artwork for 2 of the races in the game. They were mostly classics: Humans and Undead. I decided to do both in different media. Humans are all done with acrylic (plus some coloured pencil here and there) on paper. Dor the Undead I went all digital. It has certainly helped me develop my digital skills greatly!

    First up: sketches and preliminary design work for the Humans!

    I'll upload some more stuff in the coming weeks, when I find time. I'm pretty happy with a lot of it, so I can't resist showing it off!

    Oh my god Yngling! Those final paintings are outstanding! Their so interesting to look at I cant even describe how much I like them! This is definetly one of my favourite sketchbooks on CA, always look forward to your posts!

    Are those undead sketches for your story? or for the CHOW challenge? I like the line work, very tattered, just like them

    Interesting style, I've never been a huge fan of (drawing) the undead, but some of your sketches might change my mind, they have a certain really nice feel to them.

    Malakuko: Gracias! The sketches were also for the cardgame project. Thinking of it, I should have much more (and better) sketches for it somewhere, gotta find my old sketchbook...

    Tigermilk: It was fun to watch the progress. There's many differences between the pieces I made at the start of the project and those done towards the end. The only way to get better is to do it.

    Calader: I'll see if I can dig up some more sketches.

    For now, I have a few sketches from my small 12x16 cm sketchbook (and one from my Moleskine). Mostly done during breaks and lectures...
