    Geir's Dozer Book * Updated 01.04.14*

    Hi y'all

    Just thought I put up this sketchbook. Here will be found all kinds of stuff I find both in my head and outside my head.

    This is the first sketch of a Hammerhead. They are some creatures I visit no and again and have gotten the premission to portray as long as I don't reveal were their world are.

    Here's a rough one. Trying to break out from the very realistic chains I've been in the last ...odd years. More focus on color than shape here.

    Hey there. Keep working at it.

    My recommendation for the time being, don't be afraid to throw in some darker darks and lighter lights. Nothing wrong with contrast. In the event that it seems up your alley, I've always thought that whatever we're posting, good, bad, full of wonderous brushstrokes or fumbling along the learning curve - we should always feel the freedom to present the pieces proudly and strongly.

    Might try working on a piece, working with the contrast in the aftermath of said piece, and then using the final presentation as a pallette for future works. There's a whole bunch of colors and tints out there, don't be afraid to use them regardless of consequence.

    Cheers for now.

    Hey Two Listen. Yea this wasn't my best. Speed painting is a very new way of working for me. I'm used to reeaally taking my time with my paintings. But you're right. More contrast and colors.

    This was a relativly quick sketch of a dream I had lately. When I say relativly, I mean I allways have to work very slow when I draw a dream. They tend to disapper as I'm drawing, and allways faster than I draw.
    This is the only thing I remember from that dream. These two massive solid iron bridges.

    I like the devil in the milk. Very good enviro studie. Keep working on physics of light and color. And probably you lack some dynamics of shape and value, especially at griffin and winter works. They good, but could've be better. Try to spend more time at thumbnails, paint and draw more freely. Hope you won't take offence of my advices and good luck to you!

    I really like your alien heads and monsters. But most of all I like how you put awesome fantasy elements into normal city scenes.

    Seraph Fawkes: Yea I need to work all said things. I have allways worked from live model or photo, so working from imagination I still find hard. And I find I some times lack knowledge I thought I had seeing as I can do it as long as I see it. And no, I dont take offence. I listen to all advise that comes my way. Ta

    Twan: By punkhead I take it you mean the techohead. That is meant to be out of proportion. It was an idea that I just havent finished yet. And ta on the speedies

    Janos: Thanks. Now if I only could manage to finish the griffin one. I am really stuck on it. I take it out every now and again, but it just stops.

    Orc time. I find it so much easier to paint monsters than humans. Heres the orc done for now. And so it's over to finalise them all.

    The dark side.

    Here'sa little WIP of a hammerhead piece I'm working on at the moment. Not the most plesent side of the Hammerheads I have portrayed.

    I've also started on a serie of portraits where I want to give people animal features of different kinds. Hopefully these will be exhibited in september at an exhibition I'm holding with a collegue of mine here in Norway. I want to make high quality prints of them, so if anyone can tell me what I should be looking for to get high quality prints it would be much apprishiated.

    This first has the working title Helena.

    I really like ur fantasy settings! If u want to work on something: I find ur elf, dwarf and human really static, they remind me of mideaval book illustrations or something. Maybe u can do some anatomy studies of the human body?

    Thanks Ragos. I'm actually quite happy that those illustrations reminds you of medieval illustrations. These was made as illustrations for a high fantasy browser game, and I wanted a suggestion of medieval But human anatomy (and other kinds of anatomy) are allways good to practice on
