Hi, my name's Jakob. I've been lurking around this place for a few years now and I thought it was time I made a sketchbook of my own.
I've been drawing for as long as I can remember and it's mainly what I spend my time practising, I never use reference pictures when drawing or painting I try to memorize how things look by studying pictures and then just put that on paper and see how much I really know.
Only in recent years have I started becoming interesting in digital painting and it's something I hope to improve.
So I'll be posting all my sketches and whatnot in here as often as I can and hope that you guys'll enjoy them.

Haven't been doing much sketching on the computer in the past couple of days. . .so here's something I did today.
Just practising and so forth. . .
Speedpainting of the day. . 35mins~
Oooh, lovely atmosphere in the latest speed painting there dude. Keep it coming. =D
It's been a while since I posted something. . .haven't really had anything that I was able to show to you guys.
So I decided to show a stylized female face I've been sculpting on in Zbrush for the past hours or so.
Maybe I should start posting WIP's since this sketchbook is starting to collect dust. Oh well here's a new piece anyway, worked on it on and off whenever I had time really.
Another character design for a friends short story.
So I haven't posted anything in a long while, so I'll do small "collage", if you will, of my stuff in no particular order. It's just random stuff really. . .have been having a hard time with coming up with solid ideas.
I am loving your stuff. Your female figures in particular are incredibly intriguing because they all aren't super-model thin bad-ass gun-wielding chicks. What program do you use for your digitals?
nice! study a little more anatomy, it helps tons. And do a little lifedrawing, helps a lotwith the female figure
I ought to spend more time on painting the background "props" as well as colour blending. . .everything looks so rough but I guess some like it that way.
You're good, some of your work looks amazing, keep on!
Long time no see, as usual. . .
Well this time around I have a good reason for it. SCHOOL. Hopefully I'll be pumping out more art because of this as I now will probably get some proper guidence.
So I painted to quick 1,5H portait out of my mind with one soft brush in Photoshop just to have something to go along with this post.
It's been a while since I posted something here. Thought it was about time I dusted off my sketchbook and submitted something new.
Down below I've posted a mix of both completed and incompleted practise pieces and assingments.
Great work, you should definitely update more! Keep up the good work.

Nice rendering, although there are the occasional anatomy quirks that I'm seeing...

@dsacc: I'm going to try and update my sketchbook atleast once a week.
@ Falchion: Only have myself to blame for the anatomical quirks.
I ought to use reference pictures a lot more than I do now. xD
@ Pluscandy: Thanks!
A little quickie done at school.
