The man with no name: Thanks.
More of the same.
Edit: Second page. Yay!
Finally something from Bridgman's. He's the man! Gotta study him every day from now on.
More Bridgman and also some random stuff from mind.
Alright, STOP! Bridgman time...

Too many precious hours went into this but I had a great time painting it.
Candle on my table.
really like your work
you have a nice grasp on colors...
keep up the good work
Mitzuliina: Thanks. I think I'm getting more confident with using colors. I guess painting from life helps a lot.
Just something for fun. The composition is all over the place, but what the heck. Also, I'm still crap at handling the edges. Gotta work on that.
I know I should do more studying instead of this, but cause school is so hectic right now, doing these helps me to relax a bit.
cool updates, I enjoy doing bridgemen studys then stuff from mind right after
you have some great moods in your paintings. Id say you should try and make the focal points more clear though maybe some more detail in focal areas.
keep it up looking forward to seeing more
till next time -Jamie

Hey, nice practice and improvements in here. Always love seeing Bridgeman, I'd deffo recommend Andrew Loomis also, I think he expands upon Bridgeman - explains it better and is extremely encouraging to read as any Artist.
Don't sweat drawing and painting instead of school work - at least you're not playing games and wathcing TV instead! Too much work not enough play.. etc^^
Keep it up!
OmertA: Thanks. Doing that with Bridgeman might help a lot. Thanks for the tip. I'll try it next time I pick him up.
AlexTooth: Thanks mate. Yeah Loomis is a classic. I've studied him a bit in the past (not in this sketchbook though). I still suck big time at heads, so I probably should eyeball his books once again.
Another one for relaxation after a long rough day at the university. About 4 h.
I started playing with some custom brushes, mainly from Djahal and Cicinimo (awesome painters and humanbeings for sharing their magnificent brushsets). Had tons of fun, but maybe went a little overboard with it, eh? Anyways, I think I really should start using custom brushes more to make my paintings a bit more textured and interesting. I have a bad habit of using just the basic round brush.
Wow, u have some really nice stuff in here! Would love to see more!
Love that big dead creature in the water

ColorExcursion: Thank you. I'll try to update often, so there is more to come.
Result of todays painting session. Not too satisfied with the creature design, so I'll probably change it later. I know one shouldn't go into detailing too early. That's one of the biggest flaws in my painting process currently and I should probably try to fix it as soon as possible. More thumbnails and quick sketches and loose experimenting. Anyways, some critisism would be nice at this point.
these are really great, I love the train one
Quiet storm: Thanks. Glad you like it.
Bunch of stuff. Started doing Dave Rapoza's Crimson Daggers studies (fantastic way to learn, thanks Dave). Hopefully I can catch up on them.
Man that wizard/lizard thingy still sucks donkey balls. Might just abandon it now.
Couldn't stop painting today. Good thing that I didn't, cause I think I learned whole bunch of new stuff. No wonder everyone was telling me my paintings were blurry, cause they were. I finally remembered to try unsharp mask and it made a world of difference I think. Made me want to play with it a bit. Here's the results. The dragon sketch was older work that I tweaked. Looks kind of interesting now I think.
Took that dead creature on the beach a bit further. Didn't turn out the way I wanted, but it was ok practise I guess. Gotta put more emphasis on composition and value instead of mindless detailing and finishing crappy pieces. Also did a Crimson effin Daggers Loomis study.
This weeks EOW and another worms and dudes painting. I'm running out of ideas, lol.
Mohzart: Thanks a lot. And nope, I don't mind. That's actually feels like a big compliment
A WIP Sargent study and a still life from couple weeks ago. Feels like I'm finally getting into studying again, thanks to Crimson Daggers. It's been a real kick in the ass in that sense.
Sup man your improving with every post that sargent study is beautiful. The caravan eow is really sick to your best concept yet.
looking forward to seeing more keep it up
sketchbook updated October 6th
Finished Sargent study and a WIP one.
WOW! Dude, I hate when people who are younger than me are this much better than me! LOL, Keep it! This is nice stuff.
Skiriblinmatt: Thanks. You just gotta work harder, man, study more.
Placeboast: Kiitos kiitos. Well, in the end these are just studies. The real test is weather or not I can take anything out of these to my own paintings. I think the ear looked a bit funny in the original too. Might be that I messed it up bit more though.
Bridgman stuff and a Zorn study. Some doodling and figures from mind as well.
Mo, as we say in tampere when we feel like moro is such a long and tiring word.
This last study after Zorn af whom I have never heard before is looking stunning. This Zorn guy sounds like a character from ghostbusters: Zorn the protector of the keymaster.
It is really easy to see that you will be a great artist if you just keep on keeping on.
Is that middle guy in the latest painting holding his yellow breasts? Just wondering.
Placeboast: Yes. He's holding his flaming astral boobs. Forgot to paint the bra.
It's been a while. Hardly any time to paint these days.
Anyways, thought I'd pop this enviro I made today here. First painting in many months.
It's been a while. Thought I'd pick up drawing again now that the World Cup is over.
Some heads from mind, photo value study + random chick.
Here's an enviro I started today. Any thoughts, crits?
