    wookiedabo: Thank you so much! I'll see what I can do about her jawline, what exactly did you have in mind?

    I've not been half as good enough at updating here as I should, but I haven't made a lot lately. Here's what I'm doing right now, trying out a muted pallette, trying my best not to oversaturate colors. Kind of just learning how to work colors :p

    Wow really amazing stuff. Your foreshortening studies are just plain fearinducing. Never ever will mine look that confident and most of all RIGHT. What do you study from? From life?
    Thread is definitely bookmarked and subscribed.

    Cheers

    Your digital work is already pretty fantastic! not to say that your pencil works aren't because they most certainly are! I smell an amazing SB on the way!

    You've got some butt-kicking skills!!

    Are you currently residing in Oslo? If so -- join up for some café sketching??

    Nice update.
    liker den begrensede paletten din, sykt smudd så langt (siden det er deg og jeg tipper du skal bli ferdig med teningen)

    vlad74: Thanks for the stars!

    kevinwueste: Thanks! Yeah, I use Photoshop, I never really got around to learning Painter :p

    Janos: I study mostly from photos, but on some foreshortening sketches I use my own legs and arm as models. But not for any of those I've posted here, and I guess I haven't scanned any of the others. Also, thanks a lot for the kind words!

    CgMonkey: Thank you! I live close to Oslo, and go to school with Even, and I have been to the sunday sketching club thing about four or five times. Who're you? I'm the guy with the afro :p

    Jofx: Tackar! Prøver å lære meg litt farger og sånt, så jeg må øveøveøve. Mulig jeg aldri gidder å gjøre ferdig denne her, egentlig, er sykt lei av den. Også ble den litt for glatt for my liking.

    So here are four studies I did today, kind of playing around with cross hatching and line weight and what have you, trying to make it all work. I haven't really drawn anything for a week now, so they're a bit sloppy in places :p

    I like the hands and arms of the last one especially

    Wow, I really admire your traditional work- you have such great control of your lines, which I envy. And your digital paintings are beautiful, too. I am in awe o.o

    Your studies are really great. I really love those tight, clean lines and your way of defining form. I can see that you're thinking about how to maximize the usefulness of every line on the page to describe the figure. I can't wait to see more from your sketchbook.

    Great Stuff

    Josef K.: I'm not really sure, I never took the time, but I will sometime! I'll be sure to get back to you about that. And thanks for the stars!

    akabraille: You're right, I do try to get all the lines to work well together, but I don't always succeed, unfortunately, so I gotta practice more on that. Find the balance

    Here are a few more, and I really should draw more guys, I see now that I never do that :p

    The drawings are very nice. I like teh proportions and bodies. It's just ncie to look at and they show how you have completely mastered anatomy. How long did it take you to come this far?

    Janos: I have, unfortunately, far from mastered anatomy yet. I started drawing seriously about three and a half years ago, and I guess I started doing anatomy studies a couple of years ago, maybe more. These days I draw and paint a lot from life at school, which of course helps a great deal, but I'm constantly trying to figure out how the body is put together

    Thanks to everyone for their kind words

    Here's something I started on today, to get this far took me a little more than an hour, which I'm very proud of. I've been inspired a lot by Rembrandt lately (trying not to get stuck in that Uglow style too much), and kind of tried a somewhat Rembrandt-ish pallette today, but not so much, I see now. Should I up the contrast to make the dark almost black, and the skin more golden-like, like the second image?

    You know what? I hate the fact that even though I draw constantly, my shit come out like crap, and you skip out on practise for a week and you STILL kick the living bajingo out of my drawings. I gotta do more! AAAAAARGH!

    So many cool studies, you've got a nice flow to your lines! Maybe you could do some more imaginative stuff? Always good to put in to practice what you've learned. ^_^

    Mischeviouslittleelf:You know what, I don't agree with you! I kept in mind what you told me about varying hues more when painting, is it better now? Tried to kind of let go of my too-tightedness when it comes to stuff like that, but I still think I'm a bit stiff. You know? Always having to make it perfect, etc. :p

    `ej:Thanks! Sometimes I erase some lines, but usually not. If I'm in a good drawing "mood", I never erase anything, but that seldom happens. I draw very slowly, though :p

    Schmitz: Thank you! I try staying young, but it's not that easy, with time and all :p

    Imaginary:Thanks a lot! I need to draw more frequently though, and more from imagination, as you say. I tend to never do that as I'm not very good at it, but lately I've been trying to draw portraits and faces without reference, and I'm getting better :p

    DStraX: Jeg prøver, ja, men det er ikke så lett. Har blitt litt raskere da, men jeg bør tegne mer.

    Here's a portrait I made yesterday of a friendesse of mine. I tried to vary hues more, like Even said I should, and I think I succeeded (to some extent). Oh well, I'll probably upload some sketchbook pages one of these days Here's a Time lapse of it

    Haha, great sketchbook this is! Demoralising and inspiring at the same time. Your age makes me feel envious. I love your forshortning sketches and your portraits!

    Been a while since I've stumbled in here. Your colour selection is amazing, really love the green in the most recent painting. The considered quality of your lines is something I've been trying to do for ages, you make it look far to easy. Are some of those face sketches from ref? So yeah, no crits, I've got nothing helpful to say or point out, awesome stuff mate.
