just slacked off at work for about 30 minutes and looked through some of your sb. phenominal designs man. u just motivated me to do some pose maniac stuff.
Areit folks! I am back from overseas, and I gotta tell you, London is amazing! We were there for five days and crammed in 12 exhibitions in about 10 galleries or so! We saw Francis Bacon at Tate Britain, along with some works by John Singer Sargent, Waterhouse, Rubens and long list of other amazing aritists. I have never been a huge fan of the modernist art movement, so a lot of the places we went, like Tate Modern (where we saw Mark Rothko) was a huge frustration for me. I really do not see the genious, but still, you have to respect a man who can dazzle peole with rectangles of colour. We were also at the British Museum, and our guide was as british as they come (pip pip tally ho, mum's the word and bernard's your uncle, kno'what I mean?). All this meant that we did a large ammount of walking, which is good on the side that I felt like a health freak (unless you count all the english cuisine we gobbled down) and at the end of the day, I was too bloody tired to draw or paint. I kind of regret it, but it was all good fun.
Now on to more pressing matters, so READ THIS:
in post 525, I posted a lady, wearing a red/maroon dress, and so forth, I should have specified this as being a study into Jens' style, a huge failure in that cause, but still. The absence of afformentioned classification is why (and I am sure this has not caused a big stir, but I want to put things right) Jens posted his original in post 540. I have nothing but respect for Jens, and so his wish that I remove the piece (my study, not his original) will be honoured, even though I think it a bit of a harsh punishment.
Anypoo, I started a little speedpaint, and also, I did manage to throw together a take on this rifleman while in London.^^

Anyways great job on the face in your most recent rifleman
the feet seem a little clownish though and I think he could be a bit taller if you wanted a more heroic look
but ya keep it up mate these works are beautiful
And here I am to give you your 5 STARS again!!!!!!!!!You deserve it!!!Surprisingly I didn´t voted before!
Areit, so I went and saw a danish film at the cinemas today, called "The Flame and The Lemon", or "Flammen og Citronen", a tale of the danish resistance during WWII. The title of the movie are the names of two of the most active opperatives of that conflict, and it is a good movie, as well as a tragic and very moving story. I did a bit of research on them, and even though they never actually blew up a nazi headquarter or anything like that, I wanted to have them do that this is the first WIP, and I am having a ton of fun working on this!
Thank you all for the nice comments, and I will work hard to get better at everything!
ninja: Thanks man, and Camara fixed the pickle
DDF: Imaginairy, my favorite flavour!
Camara! You are a cheer up in a box of woopdidooness!
woah it just got even cooler.
You haven't done this yet , but just be careful not to detail the "mood" out of it
also i think darker glasses on the guy to our right, and darker hair too his partner. also I think some birds scattering would be cool
but really it is fine, those are more personnel preferences
Nice figure work too, proportions are dead on mostly and your lines are pretty clean
oh and I added an anatomy dump ( as you requested)
so Keep it up mate I'll see you around
Looks like PURE AWESOMENESS
thought I'd drop by and give you a shout out. So looked through your sketchbook, and gotta say lots of improvement, you got amazing characters, really nice color choices, good detail. Really nice polished stuff.
So much talent here. I can only say keep it up man, I can't find alot to crit about. Hmm didn't mean to asspat all over the place.
Thanks for giving my sketchbook a look.
Endelig kommet meg gjennom alle sidene^^
er Tim fra skolen btw
I just looked true almost your whole sketchbook , got tired at some point and skiped to the end.You improved alot as you can tell by yourself.
And yeh ,hm.. what else .
5stars + subscribed.
you have a wonderful sketch book i really enjoy this piece though.
Really lovely sketchbook you have here... I'll keep my eye out for this - keep postin!
Hey man, I really appreciate your comment in my SB. Made my day and inspired me (it doesn't really take that much) I really like your stuff in here, awesome stuff! The only thing I have to add is about that image earlier with the two gyus walking and an explotion behind them. I've noticed that black clothing almost never have a lighter value than 50% (clothing is absorbing a lot of light) The thing is that you rimlighted everything the same way, not paying attention to material. As a result, the clothing looks out of place. Just something to keep in mind.
btw, jeg bor i Bergen, så det passer kanskje litt dårlig å reise til Oslo hver søndag for å tegne Men skulle gjerne kommet hvis jeg hadde bodd i nærheten, sikkert veldig gøy og lærerikt ^^ En haug med kule greier her, stå på!
Keep it up
Whats the key for? 30 min is pretty damn fast for that pic. think ill have to work on my speed to now
sketchbook pages are sweet
I think that you could stand to fill the pages a little better, kinnas is a great example of that, also something that would help your pages would be to have a better contrast range, i.e. darker darks, and specific highlights
that said, your lines are very nice and the ideas are fresh
keep it up mate
