David Smit sketchbook [Updated TODAY page 3!!]
--New stuff in the back--
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,
And some other sketches

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.

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..)

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.

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
And a observation painting on the ferry from Picton to Wellington
