I'm Kasper, I'm 18 and from Denmark..
I had a sketchbook here about 4 years ago that didn't last very long, because I was probably busy climbing trees and setting girls hair on fire - like every boy at 14. But the spark hasn't died out, actually it has turned into a gigantuan bonfire that burns inside me every day now.. I can't stop drawing, painting and all that and I'm thinking about being a fine artist whenever I grow up.
On to the real thing...

stuff from today. posemaniacs (60 sec poses) and landscape.
Yes, yes, I see a lot of potential here
First, I would say, keep an eye on your values.
Keep a value scale in mind every time you shade something. It might even help to draw one (off to the side or something), but make sure you always include at least some areas of very dark black and some areas of very white highlights in your sketches.
Next, keep it up with the anatomy sketches. Posemaniacs you say? Keep doing that, but do some longer studies as well. You might want to try out Loomis or Bridgeman's. I'm working through Loomis right now, but I've also heard Bridgeman's recommended quite often.
Keep it up! And keep feeding the fire!
60 sec poses, reffed animals, Bridgeman studies and reffed people
Kim_bot > Thanks!! You're right about the values, but it's hard for me to get it going when the sketch is crooked/wrong/whatever.. I really enjoyed doing Bridgeman studies today, so I think I'll stick with that.. He's got such a loose and yet strong style.
good varied art uve got here... nice poses.. well done
mimar sinan Thanks!
Alright. Today I have some un-reffed stuff, insects, reffed ladies, posemaniacs and Bridgeman-studies!
Poses, studies of a fly, reffed people a-and some more poses.
One page for you tonight! Did a lot of other stuff, mostly studies but nothing worth scanning.. From reference, kindgirls.
AWWE!! HMMM!! OOOOH!! YYEAA! i love all the pencil sketches. 8) The bird is awesome.
A few tips, work on getting darker values and think about putting in some kind of space tone, that should pull forth the object. For parts farther away, keep them soft and things closer sharp. Ive hope this helps, keep it up your doing great
nice sketchbook !i like your aquarelle pictures!keep working!
l0stinth0ughts Thank you! This is excellent advice, but at the moment I'm working mainly on my linework and mass will come later, as well as perspective and foreshortening and the stuff you're talking about. Thanks though!
VanDog Thanks Van! Your new sketchbook is the shit.. New aquarelle pics coming up
Okay anatomy stuff first (longer poses this time), referenced girls from kindgirls, one page of poses, random referenced stuff, an antilope (ref) and four colourworks from my head.
I'm reading Harold Speed at the moment - do you think it's a safe method to practice line-drawing and then mass-drawing afterwards, to sort of mix it up later? I think I'm just going to draw what I see for the moment..
Thanks for the attention folks!
Heey peoples. A small amount for you today.
An even smaller amount today, school is rough. Hope you guys are well!
Sargent and Zorn-studies
I like birds....
I am trying to work with lines cuz my preliminary sketches come out a bit skewed almost every time..
From head. Did lots of studies too. Which male-figure reference site would you all recommend? I can't seem to find any..
Ladieeees.. Lots of studies not worthy of posting. Obviously from reference
This kinda looks like batman as a sockpuppet
the two girls from reference
and yes that is my underwear.
Really bad drawing day, I got really frustrated but I let loose in the end and this is what came out
Clochette Thanks! Yes I know, I could use some advice on that subject actually?
New stuff. Inspired by Shawn Barber. From picture reference.
Your lines are really vaque, is it scanner or just that you draw with too hard pencil or make too light lines?
Othervise sound work here and good progress allready

Nettle_Mountain Well I don't know if it's my scanner, I use a HB mechanic pencil and I'd say that most of my stuff apart from the poses have regular lines.. But thanks! (:

Heey guys. New stuff. I really wish there was a life-drawing class around here but it's about 3 hours away - maybe someday...
