    When I'm not listening I do this

    I think it's time to start my sketchbook. Probably should introduce myself first though.. Hello! I have been drawing about 3 and a half years now, give or take... I started this art thing because I had to make a choice between of being an alcoholic postman in northern Finland or some cartoonist.. I chose wisely looking back now and I like being some cartoonist. Two years of artschool where I learned a bit of basics and some more. Nothing fancy stuck on my mind, I was dumb.. Yeah.. fusk it. I do what I want basicly but I never let a good advice pass me by. So feel free to share you're thoughts about anything. I'll respond with my limited english and internet dictionary.

    Northern Finland, eh? I am from Finland as well. And I hear you - taking the alcoholist-route is not so hard here.

    Nice first piece, by the way. I like the cartoony feel of it, and your use of colors. Post more, ok?

    Ja tervetuloa.

    Sorry for this double post but I could find a way to add these two to the first one.

    Hi, I'm from Finland too. I just picked up drawing for much of the same reasons! I never consume alcohol though. That's a skill nobody has ever taught to me. And I live in central Finland.

    Where did you go to school? Every major school I know requires some huge portfolio with skillfully created imagery and 1% of the applicants get in. Of course there are some courses outside of "main education system" or whatever, but they often cost quite much.

    I went to the Liminka school of arts (www.limingantaidekoulu.com). It's a good place to be and draw because you can even sleep in you'r "classroom" if you want. And it isn't that expensive that you'd think or atleast it wasn't at my time. You should take a look at it if you have few years to spend.

    Your colours are nice but it looks as though you should work more on your anatomy. Ever give watercolour a go ?

    ped545: Yeah, I do watercolours. Like this one and the previous ones.. About anatomy - I think that I can do realistic enough if I feel like it. If the picture in my opinion doesn't need realistic anatomy I just dont do it. I guess I should post some figure studies so you can crit them.

    This is about 30 min sketch + colouring and then editing. Still testing what kind of style I like and what is useful for my future comic.
