I've been surfing this site for some time now and i am loving every bit on it!. So i finally decided to start my own sketchbook try do something about my drawing. I tried it once before but did not stick to it. But now i got my self a scanner to make things a lot less complicated
anyway, i'm starting art-school after xmas and i'm hoping to improve my drawing there and here! so i will be posting old and new stuff.!
edit: I have decided to dedicate this thread and my progress to my dear friend, Jakob who died in a horrible accident, on january first, only 19 years of age.
edit 2; been a minor change... im just trying to find out how to change the thumbnail so i moved the pictures from this post to the next one no biggie

Hi there, looks like you have a good start with the sketchbook.
My crit is that you tend to draw a lot of tiny stuff, but I think your bigger drawings look much better. Maybe you should try to keep their size big enough to add details comfortably. Also I would say look out for the scratchy lines on some of them even though they are sketches.
thanks for stopping by my sketchbook and keep on drawing !
and to make this more interesting, some old stuff too

Hey again! Takk fyrir heimsóknina
Those are some good studies and will prove useful later, just keep them coming, daily! I think you should put the comic/fantasy stuff aside for now, since you're drawing them from your imagination with no references. Just draw from references for a while. Draw from life, study other people's life drawing, paintings, sketches and see if you won't improve within several weeks. Good luck!
Takk fyrir (thank you )
here is some fairly new and old stuff (i dont have the time to draw now, christmas work and stuff so...)
UPDATE! dam im hammered!!

Good start man, I think that you would benefit a lot from working from life or reference materials, if your looking for poses I read a post the other day where someone recommended good site to work from characterdesigns.com anyhow keep up up, and I'm looking foreword to watching your progress
Check out my sketchbook here
Critiques are much appreciated
crummy self portrait, not really happy with cause it only "sorta" looks like me, but im tired now and i dont have any more energy to continue so crit would be greatly appriciated

here is something i threw up... i know the teeth are crooked and not in the right place but i became impatient and wrapped it up in a quicky.... anyways im off for austria to snowboard ill be home 4 of january so hopefully i will have some stuff to upload when i come home
Hi sjuskadur, Thanks for your encouragement.
I believe that you'll have a good time in Austria~a beautiful country.
Don't forget what you told me: practice + practiceeee~~! when you back back from your holiday.
thanks for commenting my sketchbook!
your self portrait is lookin good! I suggest, to get better at drawing faces, try doing a page full of just one part of the face. Like one all different kinds of eyes, referenced from the mirror, or pictures, and another of noses, mouths, etc. it really does help!
Well happy new year for you "all" i got home from austria yesterday, at the moment im really sad as where i just lost a dear friend in a accident => as the name of the thread!
anyways i was able to draw a bit when i was in austria (airplanes, airports and so on) so here is what i have
update on the portrait of my friend stony
all kinds of crep!
here is something i just drew im kinda dry of every inspiration so this i a bit boring update but it is a upedate none the less!
this is what i drew this evening nothing spectacular but something
all crit welcome, mean, not mean... just some reaction to this thread would be fun heh gets boring to only read my own posts! anyway school just started and im starting art school on the 21 of jan.
ill probably just be doing model drawing this semester but maybe ill be doing some portrait drawing.. not decided yet..
anyways here is the offspring of the eight of january 2008!
here is some feet study
arm study.. not happy with it but also the ref was crap!
then i got bored drawing human life form and drew this quick one of a ant! ;P
You are going to an art school???Lucky you!!!!Keep drawing,you have to find your own style.And don´t be dissapointed about the lack of comments here.I had the same problem when I started my SB!!Hahaha,the first pages where real shit (if the last aren´t....) and no one posted there,but just need patience!!!Keep drawing!
This is a picture i did at school and im fairly pleased with the outcome!
every crit welcome
how the he*l do i change the thumbnail!? :p
while drawing from imagination is great, ASA's right, referencing and studying things before drawing and making them "fantastic" will help in the long run.
also...I am sorry to hear about your friend, i think it is very touching that you dedicated your sketchbook to him.
will visit here again..keep on drawing!
Well this is something i did today!
the portrait is well i dont like it there are so many things i think there is wrong with it! but practice practice practice! then i did the ears and they are okey i guess Theeeeeen i did the pig... but i got bored and annoyed so i stopped
please do crit this pictures and all the others i have done
here are some eyes i just did :p
Well time for an update
the first one i did at school in like 5 mins just scribbled up to potitions that my friends were in when we were talking in recess nothing big
the second one is a first sketch of Jakob, my dear friend that passed away. I am planning on getting his face right and doing a good pencil portrait of him to give his little sister for her confirmation.
anyway thats all for today! please leave a mark every bit makes me happy =)
