    i like those two surreal type ones (huge bird sculpture, and the on with a small headless figure and a big sideways face) pretty weird

    on the last one the knight's lance is broken behind the hand, you should try sketching all the elements in there entirety, even parts that are obscured and you will not see in the final piece.

    Thank you for your kind words matte_art!

    Right, I just got back from pretending to be in the 19th century among people like Renoir and Monet (that is to say, to make a big trip through Europe), and went all the way from Innsbruck back to the little frog-country I life in (Holland) today, by train... (which isn't the most advicable thing to do, atleast not in one day) so I'm not going to make this update to long.
    It seems that the eyes at this time rather are closed then open. BUT! I've seen so amazingly much it was absolutely worth the little 'pain' I had to endure this last day. I can advice everybody to buy a train ticket and just travel through Europe for 3+ weeks (5-6 weeks in my case), and go and see city's like Florence/Firenze and Rome/Roma. Even though I didn't manage to do "Vedi Napoli e muore." in the end, you can pretty much say you will almost see everything in those 2 city's alone and it is probably a must for every artist. It is just indescribable to see a statue of Michelangelo, or a painting of Da Vinci, or to see the designs Galilei did for the Basilica of St. John Lateran (etc.) for real. It is something that just can't be captured on a picture.

    Anyways, to much to say, and I'm probably just writing down a lot of nonsence right now, so Ill just do a tiny update, sleep and update more tomorrow, and get this little bastard on the track again. (I've quickly read some awesome things in the lounge! So there are even less reasons to not participate on ca frequently, if there were any in the first place)

    I'm sorry if the picture comes out to dark or anything, I've made it on my laptop and haven't connected it to a monitor to re-check them yet. (If you in any way feel offended by my laziness don't hestitate to grab a pitch-fork and say something about it)

    greetings and good night,

    Daniel

    Here are some sketches out of my sketchbook. I will update some more probably later today, but first I have to clean a bit of the mess around here. Also I'm going to have to 'clean' some of the drawings, since a lot of the graphite of one page got on the other, creating a lot of distortion when trying to scan them.

    More to come!

    Okay, on the newest one, right above, his arm is unnaturally twisted backward, plus he is holding his sword very awkward... It almost appears as though the arm is coming out of the guys back.

    Not to mention the person getting shoved doesn't look too shocked, more like dead on the inside.

    The faces one above that has this sort of sickening feeling, like perhaps the girl is on trial or something. Continue to tell the story of this piece. It is interesting!

    Hey,

    Nice SB you have .
    It seems like you get more understanding of light in your latest works... you can see much improvement .

    It looks like the first one of your last post is Rembrandt/Caravaggio inspired?
    I think it's a good start, I'm wondering what you'll make of it .

    Groetjes!

    Hey Marlissa and Matte Art, thanks for the replies! The first one is rembrandt inspired. I have always liked how he was able to show so much while painting so little And you are correct Matte_art, I wasn't thinking really when drawing that haha!

    I forgotten to say it here, and didn't change the link in my signature yet, but I've started a new sketchbook a few days ago which can be found when clicking this link:

    http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=170553

    My apologies to everybody for bumping this thread without any pic's in it! So, go watch somebody who actually does more then write walls of text!!

    greetings,

    Daniel
