    Hehe...it's been a while hasn't it.... xD I've been busy with a lot of stuff for school. And I thought let me update with the fabric/clothes studies I did for a subject. I passed the subject.

    Here's a small selection of the studies on 50x65cm (19.6x25.5 inch):

    And the final painting to end the series of studies. It's on 100x70 cm (39.7x27.5 inch):

    I've been doing some pose studies to make a mermaid illustration (2 months ago):

    Thanks Sean! Those aren't actually the speedpaints we've been talking about. I still didn't got the time to do any. I've been busy following and taking notes of the online streaming color theory class. So I'll get started on them soon enough. Those are actually speedpaints made from marker sketches. The idea is to keep 'em simple and loose just to put down an idea. I'll check your new speedpaints in about an hour

    massive, maaaaasssive update, - did you just post your whole sketchbook?
    The anatomy studies look very cool, very rhythmic and fun to look at, I love to see that you work with thumbnails and that the results are good (with some minor anatomy crits but I already saw you posting those in the critique centre) and the environment speedpaints have sweet colors and compositions.. maybe I'll steal the idea from you ^^
    So all that said: good sketches, keep on posting if you can, I want to see more

    I just took a break to post this.
    But sometimes I also draw stuff

    Kiera: Thanks a lot. No, in fact I just posted the pages I did from May until now. The anatomy sketches are from Bridgman. You should check him out. It's helping me a lot. I wonder what you'll do with the *cough*stolen*cough* idea. Be sure to show me. I wonder which one you'll pick ^_^

    I was a bit bored so I decided to do a speedpaint. It's nothing much, but at least I got the ball rolling.

    ...and yeah...composition and all is not that great. It's more a time spender than a well composed image.

    Today's dump. I was in a artsy mood so I did quite some sketches. Some bridgman and I got a cool small sketchbook with tinted paper so I tried some stuff on that as well. I also did gestures for the first time in my life from posemaniac and damn....it's hard..
    I tried different approaches, just putting the pose down, trying it with the Bridgman approach and building it from circles and ellipses.

    Hey Sean, thanks for your comment. I've been painting all day today. I've made some sketches, I tried to do some color samples and I started on a painting from life of the park here with gouache. Damn that's some difficult paint xD

    Well...you gave me a kick again. I made another speed paint. Once again one hour or a bit more. All from memory. Painting all day long outside does have it advantages and the color theory and composition class are starting to work here! This one is for you Sean

    My new goals huh?
    - I want to learn at least two art-based stuff each week. Things that could improve my work immediately.
    - I want to sketch more and study the human anatomy more than I did before.
    - I want to learn how to paint even better and do it more. (My Minor is gonna help me with that)
    - More studies, more more more....

    Also....let me add the paintings I made in the outdoor.

    And all the TEAM CHOW work I did so far. I'm designing a fairy.

























    Sorry no sketchbook pages this time. The team chow is taking a lot of time for me.

    aaaah, huge and fantastic updates! i see there some bridgman studies-very good. look better that mine-rhythm, right? (post #41)
    the landscape speedpaitings are awesome, i want to see more of them, more more more. but i think you can give thme more depth by lowering the saturation more in the background. anyway, the colours are aweseome!
    i hope to see some updates soon!
    best regards

    MeticoloR' Thanks a lot! Your words mean a lot to me

    Okay......I finished my work for the Team CHoW. Just in time. The deadline is next Monday, the same day the new school year starts. I have a feeling I will update a looooot more this school year.

    I'm a member for 1 year now and I only have two pages here....I should be ashamed of myself and I am!

    Left good, right evil.

    Hiya. Thanks for the nice comments on my SB!

    I like your sketchbook, nice studies and imaginary stuff all round.

    The Scott Robinson stuff turned out nice(i like that dvd) the Syd mean ones are cool too.

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Looks like one of the places you could spend some more time on is perspective. When drawing your cubes,cones,spheres ect the masses are off, the ellipse are not right on and the lines of the cubes arn't parallel. Nit-picky for a sketchbook comment i know but i think paying a little more attention to that stuff will improve your work

    oh and since you are painting as well give my link on color a read, i like how he presents the material.

    Thanks Zazerzs! I didn't construct the shapes. I was too focused on getting them there and shading them properly. It's a good thing to say I should pay more attention. Thanks

    jatherip Thanks a lot

    Okay new school year, new semester. This year I have my minor: (Classical) Painting. That means I'm gonna paint a lot and I have to do studies at home. Thank god I have to, because I didn't do them enough. The first 8 weeks we're gonna focus on portraits.

    So, first home assignment;
    - Three self portraits:

    And I forgot how fun it was to draw portraits. I also found out I have difficulties measuring horizontal proportions...

    The man with no name Thank you, I will!

    Well...Painting class on Monday. Like I said the focus is on portraits for now. The class was themed: Structure. So we had to do research of photographs and bring them back into planes. I'll post them once I post my studies of this and next week.

    We also had to paint. Well the day started not so good. We had to bring along white and a color of our own choice because we would work monochromatic. Prepare for some failure:

    After a break we had some art theory. After coming back I had a change of heart. Or maybe it was because of the material switch. The teacher had some kind of material painters used to do quick sketches. I saw Emily G and William Whitaker use it too in their sketchbooks. I don't know what it's called in English, heck I don't even know what it's called in Dutch. All I know it's made of walnuts. Okay back to the point. One way or another it worked for me. I could more accurately paint what I saw. And it was a whole lot fun!

    We had to paint casts of heads. IT. WAS. FUN!

    Too bad I couldn't finish the last one. The teacher took the cast away while I was painting it! Ah well....I think I'm gonna buy the walnut-thingy. It's great study material.

    I can't participate next week. I'm going to have surgery to improve my breathing. Instead I have to do lots of studies. So if I'm feeling well after the surgery I will do so. I hope to be able to update soon.

    ok, what is that magical walnut substance?
    Some kind of oil?

    Otherwise.. everything coming along nicely.. nice good vs. evil picture, the preparations you do before you really get to the figures seem to help a lot, the designs look believable and good.
    Portraits take a lot of practice but you are doing well.. can't say much more than: draw a lot more, it helps enormously to carry a sketchbook with you and to sketch every free time you find from life

    much love

    I just took a break to post this.
    But sometimes I also draw stuff

    Thanks! ^_^

    Let me seee....the magical walnut substance.



    It's a powdery substance which you use with water to create a kind of ink I guess. I'm gonna ask my teacher when I see him again. He may know the English term.

    Krato: Thanks, I will!

    Aw man, I totally forgot to update this at least once a week. So here it is again....a big batch....get ready xD

    First off: Paintings from the Monday class.

    What happened next was that the teacher told me I was working too much in my comfort zone and I was experimenting too little. So he took my 2 inch brush and painted over a drawing I just finished and said: Now do the same thing using the two inch brush without drawing it first. So I did, and it was awkward....really awkward to work with that big brush.

    After the class he told me I was working and thinking to much with the "drawing-state-of-mind" and I had to break that habit somehow. Aw man that was hard. I tried working in only general shapes in my sketchbook for the coming week but that didn't do any good....at least I thought it didn't.

    Then it hit me.....I had to break the connection (thus habit) between my eye, brain and hand. As soon as I picked up a brush I thought well...let's draw with a paintbrush inside of my pencil drawing. I had to break that. So what did I do. I got an old tooth brush and I started to paint with that. It totally freed my mind and I felt great after doing so.

    The teacher said it was a good choice to start painting with a tooth brush and insisted me to do so for the rest of the day. So I did.

    And that is where I'm currently at with my painting class: Doing paintings with a tooth brush. It's really fun to do and I'm gonna do some more using the same tooth brush. If that gets too comfortable, I'm gonna use something else with bristles

    Anyway, here is some sketches and other stuff I did as homework/studies for the painting class:

    Some 2 min expression exercises we had to do in class. We had to focus on only the eyes, nose and mouth the get the expression....and that was HARD.

    And starting last Sunday I started a "Scribble Sketchbook" where I only do quick and loose thumbnails/sketches without thinking too much to get warmed up or loosen up. Here is a selection:

    And that's it....for now. Stay tuned!

    I love the toothbrush idea and your results with it. It reminds me the workshop I went to last summer where the instructors told us to work with as big a brush as possible instead of immediately jumping to do tiny details.
