    let's see some improvement!

    I've been sneaking around here for some time now, but never really thought of making a sketchbook until a week ago. And then I forgot.

    My name's Julius, I'm 19 years old and from Norway. I've been drawing since I ate my first crayon, but never really started painting until maybe a month ago. I'll try to keep updating regularly, and comments and critique will of course be greatly appreciated

    I know more is better, so here is a zombie I'm working a bit on. The first colored one was my first attempt at coloring him up, but I didn't really like it, so I made the second one, which I'm more pleased with. Any thoughts, comments?

    He was more an anatomy study than anything else, so he's a tad more atlethic than a zombie would usually be :p

    I think you're off to a very good start here as you kept the approach very rough. It's all about refinement from here. That is if you wanna bring that pic further. Right now it's pretty cool already. But i'd add some more details. Maybe not everywhere but in certain parts, to give it some tension

    Pandahund: Thanks! I'll keep that in mind, maybe work on it some tomorrow.

    I just wanted to post this WIP self portrait I'm working on before I'm off for the day

    ooo! du er jo flink jo digger zombien din masse.. gleder meg til å se den videre i prossessen.

    liker forresten den første zombien best.. føler fargene er mer sansynelige. men kunne trengt litt mer blå

    Here's an update on the self portrait, I'm thinking of coloring it when I'm done with the b/w... But I can't seem to figure out how I should make my hair. I'll check out some tutorials on it, I guess, and does anyone of you guys know any good techniques? I have curls, by the way. I dunno if that's easier or harder :p

    you're off to a great start already. roughing it out it tantamount; so that's a plus here. maybe try blending a bit more and pushing the contrast up just a tad.

    Hey Julius, this stuff is gettting almost creepy! That SB is gonna turn out some serious goodness I like your values and your colours are good and detemined, no pussyfooting around, I like that. On the zombie thing, there are a few things you might (or might not) wanna look into:

    First, make sure he really stands in space, I would not say he is floating or nothing, bu he seems to be sort of tripping, that said, it is a cool design, so keep at that. The colours are lovely, you are good at defining shapes, sort of like Uglow, so that is facinating.

    Secondly, on your SB, as awesome as that one is, you might wanna take into consideration highlights. Usually they would not be so predominant that they would need emphasis, but seeing as you cast shadow is as strong as it is, I would imagine the lightsource beeing quite direct, so look into that I guess. Apart from that, you should finish this on black and white, and then do another directly in colours, that would be a good challenge

    So keep at doing what you are doing, 'cause you are doing it well

    Hope you are up for sunday sketching today!
