Been experimenting with a little freeware tool called Artweaver today. Seems cool, like a Photoshop-Painter-Hybrid (I don't have either). The brush system is nice, but new to me, as I've only been using SAI and openCanvas, which don't work spacing-based.
So here's some quick thumbnails, trying to get some brush settings I like:
Two openCanvas girls:
This one was slightly reffed, learned a lot about brushes and values:
And some 60 second poses.
I wish i would have done more today :-/
But I'll tackle this week's EOW, as it was an environmentoring assignment

Wow...Figure drawing like crazy. I think you should do some detailed figure drawing. Keep it up man!
Great work you have here, specially composition congratulations
Nice stuff man! I like your female characters. I would like to see some of them a bit more developed. Keep posting.
Cool, like your stuff, especially your studies and female character.
You're stuff is great an you're improvement even greater,
I like you're characters and love the colors in the canyon thing.
Wow, so many replies!
ItalianHorsey, thank you, yeah, figures are what i need to improve right now the most besides enviros, and it's fun! Will do some more detailed ones soon.
Nistarn, thanks mate
smid, thank you, grils are alway fun to draw, aren't they?
Flutic, thank you very much, I'm always so happy to hear I improve
Well the hot phase of my exam period is starting, so I don't really have much time, but here's a chick i managed to throw in when studying assembler programming with my buddies at university, first time drawing with a ballpoint pen too, feels cool, kinda like pencil...
Also did some Vanderpoel studies today, trying to get my hatching follow the forms, was amazed by how hard it was, it forces you to think a lot about the actual forms, really great, will do that always from now on....
I actually felt like shit today, having headache and whatnot, but it's better now after drawing and listening to Yoko Kanno and reading the replies to my sketchbook
Just found your sketchbook because of the funny name Cool stuff, you have been doing lots of anatomy studies and you update often. You got it going!
Loolarge, thanks a bunch man
Had my exam in machine oriented programming today, it was hell. They asked stuff we weren't taught yet, as it's a third semester's subject, and I am first semester, and 90 minutes were much to little time, and everybody think they failed But I at least solved 4 out of 6 tasks and could draw on the way home, so it was alright.
Here's sketches on the bus. I am amazed how easy this follow-the-forms hatching is, how much it improves the workflow, and how much better it looks.
And vanderpoel studies.
And poses, 60 seconds. reached 500, yaaay. And I learned something important when doing these today, I start to look for specific aspects of the pose, how the energy flows in the figure. Hard to describe, i shall do more of these. I also feel I begin to understand things about lineweight and emphasis I didn't understand before. Aaah makes me wanna practice so much more.
fantastic studies of facial features, them are on my list to do soon!
I think you learned a good deal in this one, it looks quite successful in creating depth
The environmentoring was cool, your just doing it based on the lessons that already happened correct?
this book was perfect for me. i'm going through the same journey myself, and you've given me some hope again.
if i may ask, where did you get all of those references for your figure studies?
you have hundreds of them.
great stuff! i like the studies and i really like the girls too, they are beautifull, keep posting,^^
I already thougt, I'll find your sketchbook
Really nice drawings, don't stop
Pretty awesome studies and your digital work is making progress . But watch out for the scribbling , it might mess your work up. If its not a sketch.
Jakers, thanks for coming back man! And yeah, that one taught me a lot The environmenting was over, so I could just kinda bust thrpough it all in a couple of days but there's a new course starting soon and I hope to get in!
GiantRibot, thanks Glad to inspire. The poses are from posemaniacs.com, amazing site
Lotet, thanks, I will
skorpi, cool, you're there to? Thanks for stopping by!
flamable, thank you. You're right about the scribbling, I have to make my lines a lot cleaner.
So here's some messy sketches done on the bus...
And some Vanderpoel studies, came out rather... not so good...
And poses, 30 seconds each this time, I had problems getting more than the torso down. Guess I'll have to get faster
