    Hi there!

    What I'm doing in a nutshell: I'm traveling around the world freelancing (on my new-ish tabletPC!), sketching, seeing great things and meeting awesome people.
    Here are some small, badly photographed, not adjusted, sketches made during my travels.

    Currently i'm in New Zealand hanging out in Dunedin. (if anyone is even slightly interested) I'm traveling in a van with a random person who gave me a lift (turned out to be a very cool German girl). Great fun!
    Anyhow, before you get to bored of my BS, here is some small stuff. Hopefully I can post some commercial stuff later on.

    Thanks for watching. Cheers,
    David Smit

    Great start. I'm especially digging the panoramic townscape. Be careful with the hitchhiking in foreign countries, that sounds like a pretty bold thing to do, haha.

    ChristianShane: Thanks! The panoramic landscape was for a client. Great assignment where I visualize the level/color use etc. Hitchhiking and joining random pickups for rides is the way to go man, the best way to meet real and interesting people!

    Zenobia: Thanks, it's good to hear you like my characters!

    Obstbrand: Большое спасибо (in case you can't read russian, like me, translation: Thank you very much!)

    Hardedge: Thank you my friend. It's great to allow yourself to sketch whatever. Just see where it ends. (almost always in a monster or a girl.. hmmm)

    These aren't really sketches, but to give you guys an idea of some morning views when waking up in a Campervan.

    Small update artwise: didn't have that much time lately (quite a sorry excuseswhen your traveling.. I know...)
    But some small sketches.

    Still in NZ, Chrischurch atm, missed my flight back to Australia.. and no real idea what i'm gonna do now (travel further I guess.. harsh life..)
    I'll put up some photo's and more sketches soon.

    Cheers,
    David

    amarryth: Thanks. Yeah havent really gotten to observational stuff yet. Sound weird, but even with all the time in the world to do art, sometimes other stuff goes first. It's on the todo list though! Bought Watercolors for it. Never did it before, should be fun

    Here's a new, or old one painted over. Not really a sketch anymore, but more of an experiment I guess.

    cheers!

    Hey!
    Here's a small speed paint demo I did for Ethereal studio a while ago. Took about an hour or so. Fun to do!
    When there's some more light tomorrow (I hope) I'll make some photos of the new sketchbook. Finally started experimenting with water colors.



    A quick warm up sketch
