Combust Deficit's sketchbook
Hi, I'm Henri from Finland. I do graphics and design characters for all kinds of projects using wide range of styles. I'm inspired by art history and I like practicing and researching classic realist drawing/ painting methods. I also occasionally draw comics and animation works.

Haven't updated for a while, so here's some sketches and studies (also in my blog):

My oil painting teacher encouraged me to show some of my sketchbook contents to people instead of keeping them in the drawer, so to speak. Most were done last year. Anatomy studies, old master studies, referenced from classic works by Barcsay, Szunyoghy, and others like Imagine FX Anatomy issue.

So, since last post I've studied a year at university, graphic design again. I spent much my spare time practicing traditional and digital, figurative art skills, drawing over a thousand of anatomy studies, drawing and painting figures at least once a week and studying old masters (see my art blog for more, contains some nudity if that bothers someone). Some selected, latest sketches:

I scanned and compiled some older 2010-2011 sketchbook pages just for the sake of reflection. Some from the animal anatomy workshop of Imagine FX magazine.

More of the same. Marshall Vandruff workshop and anatomy studies of Andrea del Sarto, del Piambo and José M Parrámon.

More sketchbook nostalgy. Anatomy practices, photo analysis, old master studies (da Vinci, Annbale Carracci, Jacopo Pontormo), hasty sketches in Louvre and imagination or memory practices.

Sketches from last year when I was seriously learning anatomy, as one may notice the Bridgman and Loomis approaches, plus a Mignola study and some randomness.

A bit more diverse studies from various sources, film stills and photos as well as brainstorming, also from last year. I'll post some newer works later. My cheap scanner is not working correctly so here's photos.

Using colored pencil and sharp charcoal pencil gets one nicely into the right mood for anatomy practicing.
