    Good improvement so far!

    You've got some crazy pencil skillz, I like the way you keep your line drawinggs crisp and clean and still portray a lot of sense of weight.

    And your painting skills are getting better and better, I really like the atmosphere in one of the previous landscape studies.

    Keep it up man!

    justinkhuong: Thank you, and I'm glad I make you appreciate anatomy and composition studies! I myself think that this, combined with knowledge of light and color is the most important of all
    And no, I only work in Photoshop. Not because it's better, but because it's all I know how to work with :p

    Ledd: Thank you so much for the kind words! Keep at it, man

    Hive_minD: Tusen takk!

    Nicky S: Thank you! I'm trying to improve as much as possible, but it's hard, you know? Keep it up yourself!

    It seems I'm not that good at keeping myself busy with drawing and painting during the summer, but here's something I did tonight. I'm really pleased with this one, as I didn't use any reference for anything at all, which is very unlike me (those of you who know me should know this), but because I know that doing what I'm worst at will teach me the most I started this one. I realize it's not the most original concept or anything, but it's more a how-light-works and anatomy practice than anything else

    Critique is more than welcome!

    Here's yet another update on the portrait I've been posting WIPs of the last couple of pages. I feel it's really coming along!

    good sketching today
    cool portrait here - nice focus on the eyes, but im not too sure about the mouth. her mouth looks more like one belonging to a bath duck. BTW, great horses! and omg, look at that hand!

    The portrait looks awesome, but to tell the truth I like the colors in #154 better, I don't know it looks more mesmerizing. I disagree with eparts and Jofx, her mouth looks nice.
    The molesking sketches look nice too.
    Keep it up!

    Ok, så mye som jeg tilber dine rendering skillzls, så er det itn'o mer snillgut herifra, nå som jeg bor alene og greier må jeg kanalisere all min energi på noen få ting, som tegning, maling, littegranne sketchup nå og da, og ikke minst, GRUSE selvtilliten til Tim, Jostein, Gjermun, Egil og deg. SÅH! For det første; FLERE BILDER! Fra og med i dag forventer jeg daglige updates. Det burde ikke være vanskelig ettersom du har skanner og internett og alt annet du trenger *mumle mumle Wacom Intous 4 mumle mumle*

    SÅH! Kom deg igang nå, ellers blir det digitalt dask!

    eparts: I completely agree with you now that it's been a while since I drew it, and I'll look into making them look a bit more relaxed and natural. And not-like-a-duck's-beak

    Jofx: New stuff is HERE now, but you've probably seen it all already

    Tigermilk: Dance away! And thank you

    Rustveld: Thanks! I think eparts and jofx were saying her mouth looks weird, not nice :p I'll see about the colors, and thanks for the feed back!

    Mischeviouslittleelf: blir litt bakvendt å digge noe du selv gjør bedre kanskje, men tusen takk Og kom igjen, kom med litt ekte kritikk! Skal så klart prøve å komme med (nesten) daglige updates! Plis ikke dask!

    Here are some things from my sketchbook, and the second image is actually from imagination! Which I'm very proud of, as things I draw without ref tend to turn out not-as-good-as-this. Last week we had still life painting with fruit and drapes, and the last images are of that. I've become kind of obsessed with drapes these last days, and remember the Mischeviouslittleelf doing drape studies sometime last year, which inspired me NOW, a year or so later. Anyway, I'm having fun with it

    Awesome structure on everything here, the hatching is perfectly clean; what pencil do you use? It looks like an H, but there are places that are extremely dark, like where certain lines cross

    Great work so far; are you in college or just studying on your own?

    Thanks a lot, you guys!

    drd: I use a Pilot mechanical pencil with 0.5mm lead, it looks like this:http://www.rockbottomdeals.biz/prod_...8D42C8CCE6.jpg The packs of lead I buy say it's HB, but I think they're actually more like 2B.

    Here's what I realize is the first ever traditional painting I post here. It's a self portrait I worked on last week, which I'll try finishing when I find the time. Mirror + cardboard + acrylics

    Heisann sveisann. Daglige oppdateringer er det vell ikke helt...tsk tsk tsk, men jeg liker det du har produsert. Akttegningene dine er flotte, jeg liker dem, men det er ikke mye utfordring for deg i å gjøre det du allerede gjør så godt. Jeg tror du med god margin kan prøve litt mer forskjellige linjekvaliteter. Og prøv, for kunstens skyld, noen characters eller noen fantasidyr Du kan ha godt av det

    Og kom på Skype fra tid til anna, men si ifra først, hadde vært deilig å høre litt norske stemmer igjen
