    In a memory of a friend.. // 22 feb.. UPDATE !! seriously !! no bs!

    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

    Regards

    Gauji

    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 !

    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!

    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
