I got my two sketchbooks merged into one, so if you're a bit confused about what happened, that's the reason why.
My 'second' sketchbook begins at page 12 -

Hey everyone browsing CA.org!
I thought I'd make a sketchbook, for selfimprovement and feedback
I can't guarantee that I can keep it updated often, But I'll do my best
Here's some work done from around 2 years ago, I did when I was about 16 / 17 (I'm 23 now)
Please check the last page for something updated

Here's some work from last year. The armored bone is actually from 06.
More traditional stuff, plain pencil and paper, some watercolour

I like the octopus post some new stuff though
And here's some more recent stuff from this year, some traditional, some digital.
Please feel free to leave a comment!
The Pig and the Onelegged unicorn is a picture made in 06, but colored it recently.
Dark Ritual is my first digital picture, so the colouring is a bit exagerated
I've only been drawing lines all my life so these two months, a total new world of colour and values has been opened to me, and it's so fun and so challenging.
The picture with the cow was made for ImagineFX's weekly forum challenge, with the topic "the grass is greener on the other side"
The concepts with the lizardwarrior in armor, and different heads was thought to be a DWIII entry, but I havn't had time to finnish.
WOW man JUST INCREDIBLE STUFF! I love them! Keep going !
Clanlord - Thanks man
Um.. just some random stuff in PS. Saw some cool black'n white concepts and got inspired to do this Godlike abberation, quick scribble.
Also started on the linework for my entry to the "Super Stylised Caveman" contest here on the forum.
'update' Done with the the linework.
Cheers // DV

Hey everyone, thought I'd put some sketches up. This monday I bought a sketchbook, and thought I'd try to improve seriously.
I kinda have been thinking over things, what I want to do etc. and I really want to work with concept / digital art. I almost regret playing WoW for 2 years, hardly drawing anything .. anyway.. To make up for the loss of 730 days, I thought I'd draw atleast around 4 pages a day in my sketchbook, focusing on anatomy studys etc. things I've never bothered doing seriously.
So what you see here from now on will mainly be that kind of stuff, but also some other works etc. Allthough I cant update everyday, due to scanner, I'll be doodling!
Also posting sketches of my idea for this weeks chow. enjoy.
Good work! I see progress since my last look in your SB! I like your shades and the characters (very expressive) So my advice is KEEP GOING! Im looking forward to see some photoshop paintings! (want to see some human body studies, too

Ugh.. rushing things.. really want to finnish this COW. I have a bad habbit of not finnishing my chows and cows hehe..
"Note to self - don't start on a weekly activity 2 days before deadline"
Some sketches done yesterday ( 01.08 am at the moment )
The hand in the middle is a copy of one of mentlers hands in his ' Book of bones '
Awesome work, dude! I really like how you tackle composition and design. I have trouble with that. Subscribing to this thread for sure!
Stop by my sketchbook sometime, I'd love to hear any advice.
Enydimon Thanks man! droped by and it was sweet. I like your warcraft stuff! Sure I'd love to help if you need it, allthough I'm still strugling with basic stuff myself

hey,great improvements since i was here last.
Keep going with the most recent one,add some shadow to the armour,it looks too flat,nice piece though.
Here are 7 creatures, and much more to come these coming days / weeks.
Some of the notes are in swedish cause I scribbled 'em down quickly. Never mind them, they'll all be defined in with the final renders.
Still thinking of how to make a great utopia..
Great imrovement, best regard from Bulgaria! Second I want to add some critique about drawing the body forms, you have to study more the human anatomy and places of each muscle! Keep it up I vote EXCELLENT!
nice improvement here mate, I think you should keep at it with the last piece, it needs more room to breath. Allow the fire from the birdie to be reflected in the armour, add shadows and polish it further.
Get some anatomy studies going as well.
It sounds like a lot of negative feedback but I think you are doing good man. Keep at it with the Deep stuff as well.
Clanlord - Thanks, actually I just got 2 anatomy books so now I can study I have just been very lazy..
Buckster - Thanks, I put my last piece aside because I didn't really know what to do with it, and was a bit tired with it. Thanks for your feedback. Anatomy studies coming up
Here's a wip of a personal project, a starwars inspired piece... I've been very inactive lateley, both here and with drawing in general. But I hope to change that now.. as yoda says.. "Do or do not, there is no try."
Finnaly done some anatomy studies, and never realised how much help it is to do them. Especially the one where the male body is divided in 8 parts. Taught me alot about how the body is built up just by doing that one hehe

Finally, body studies! Very good... do some quick sketches or poses... imagine them from every day life! Your shading is developing a lot... stick on it!

Clanord Thanks for the tip, trying to draw some from imagination. I also got one of these wooden guys on a stick. Funny funny
Some random sketches last couple of days.. several personal projects going on. Ballistic publishing are calling for entries to the 4th book in Exotique series. My aim is to get published ( yea right ). My mom allways said it's better to aim too high than not aiming at all... or something like that. Anyway, I just thought it would be fun to have that as a goal, who knows what might happen.
some different character sketches.. far far far from the ideal outcome.
Here's some more sketches, and I've been to lazy to scan the anatomy work but they exist
I decided on having a forrest-moose-spirit thing in the background, it makes more sence and adds to the atmosphere. The moose is said to be king of the forrest, but we all know he's inferior to the troll.
