JailHouseRock2: Ahw thank you Matt! You're so kind
I liked doing the ink studies the most it's so much fun to work with! I really love it
Did a quick digi last hour, and upload it now already because my computer damages the picture-files very often (probably if I turn on my computer tomorrow, I can't open the file anymore -_-')

Still life looks good, only thing I can suggest is using more contrast with your brush strokes.
Like it would really help define the screen of the ipod if it was smooth and soft, and the ear buds painted with a harder brush to bring it out from the background.
That's it Take care now

Really awesome sketchbook you've got, I like the diversity in your sketches and the color palette your using. Specially in the booklet for your cd. Also liked the music

Brahimpag: Haha, thanks!
JailHouseRock2: Thnx for the tip! I'll keep that in mind the next time I paint a still life thanks for your visit!
A_Knight's_Art: ahw thanks so much!
I feel ashamed I didn't upload anything earlier, but... well actually I don't think I should come with any excuse. I'm busy with my school (psychology is really hard!) and because it's not an artschool, I can't find the time to concentrate on anything else the last months.
A month ago, some classmates found out that I have a website for my art, and really liked it. Everyone knows it now, and I fill my breaks at school with drawing classmates from life. There is actually a waiting line hahaha.
I feel very flattered, and I'm very happy that I can draw at school.
Here are some doodlish things I made since october until now.
I'm working on an oilpainting, but I can't find the rest to start with the second layer .
Made during class-thingie
Two of my bandmembers (drawn from ref) in bandoutfit.
I'm helping a classmate/friend with drawing, so we decided to choose a picture from someone (in this case Zooey Deschanel) and put the two drawings together to compare.
And this is Ruben, a friend from my class.

Thought I might upload something again.
Since I'm not in artschool anymore, it's hard to find the time to draw enough.
So here's one with good old pencils;
I used a photo I took from NoŽ a couple of months ago as ref.

wow, your paintings from ref are some of the best i've seen! some of them are downright creepy realistic!
with your stuff from imagination I think you gotta watch your line weight, you tend to use very heavy but un-nuanced outlines around everything and it flattens your images right down. have a look at some pencil drawings from people like mike mattesi (him more than anyone else), frank frazetta, andrew loomis, burne hogarth, etc and look at how they vary their lines to convey tension, weight, force, shading, focal points and a ton of other things.
careful linework can also describe objects as having volumes, as opposed to making them look like a cardboard cutouts standing in the landscape.
hope this helps, keep up the studies!

surus: ahw thanks! Here are some more
JellevdVegt: Hey, thank you! And thanks for the compliment about the music too
Sooooo.... I've been so busy with school lately! I'm studying Applied Psychology and the dark months have been very very rough for me.
When you study psychology, you have to dig into your own mind before going in somebody elses, and since this is applied psychology (we have to work with people starting from the 6th week from the first year, until the last week of the fourth year...), we have to do it quicker than normal (argh my english -_-').
You discover something about yourself -> hate yourself for it -> try to change it and feel good about yourself again.
And then, when you finally regain your confidence, you discover another thing about yourself. Blah. Exhausting.
I love it though, but it's hard to combine with drawing. Everytime I try to draw something, I feel like I should be doing some homework or something.
Here are some thingies, not much but will make up for it in the future:
Finished this one (indian ink)
My grandma (the older version from this oil painting )
My brother . I'm going to paint some portraits from familymembers and closest friends. This one and my grandma's I'm using for those oil portraits I think.

I saw this one on the wall at my grandmothers kitchen, and was surprised by the date I made this for her when I was only 15.
I think it's one of the best I've made the last couple of years. The picture is quite bad, but I'll make a better one next week .

I think you're great! Don't give up your art. I really admire ink work (especially the fourth in #376, wonderful light and gesture, and amazing lines) What did you use?
Nice photo too! Is it self timer? pld:
