Thread: ismo's book

I checked the biggest finnish bookstore suomalainen.com, and their price for Bridgman's Constructive Anatomy was 6,90 €. The book I bought, Complete Guide To Drawing From Life, costs 13,90 € there. So if you meant the latter, then it's without a doubt a good deal.

Jesus Food: Thanks, man.
Sargent study, about 2 h. During the making of this I realised the importance of a good linesketch. I rushed into painting way too early and that lead to fooked up proportions especially in the face area. Figuring out the proportions first with line saves you valuable time! Gotta remember the importance of a solid foundation in painting from now on.

First update in a while. I've been very busy with school (read: I've been lazy) lately and there's been really no time left for art. I'll promise to update more frequently from now on.
Did this on a 3h traintrip. Inspired by the passing trainyards, but no reference was used.

Fast still life/color practice. Painted just what I saw at the moment on my table.
edit: heh, had to do another right after. Too much fun.

Last one for today: a late night rusty scifi-enviro!
I think I'm finally starting to grasp the use of color dodge and texturing using the chalk brushes. Maybe over did both a bit in this one, but atleast I had a blast doing it.
I'll also post the EOW I participated. Not that happy with it though.

Heya Ismo, thanks for stopping by my sketchbook!
I can see you do vary the themes alot more than I do, and structurally everything seems right.
Some of your images have somewhat blurred edges, but nothing that a sharpen can't fix.
On the other hand, you seem to dominate light and color very well, I like it. Keep it up

No time for drawing today, so I'll post an older Edelfelt study and a modified DSG entry.
Started studying art history as a minor at the university today. Yay!
Frank Gressie: Nice words, thanks a lot!
Randis: Thanks! Your sketchbook is filled with killer stuff. It's such an inspiration to me.
Morgado: Your're right about the blurriness. I've been struggling with that a long time.
