There are some great pictures here. I like the first image of your school project post and that really dark concept study.
One tip would be to try to use less fancy brushes. A hard round one can get you far. Too detailed brushes tend to muddle pictures together.
iambanana thanks i' ll keep that in mind

Pws paei re man? You have improved very much. U make better usage of values and everything seems to be going on the right direction (and u still manage to keep the personal characteristics). Keep up the good hard work you are doing mate
Thank you all guys for your comments.
Some unfinished drawings.
I love the chunky shapes you use in your stuff, they give your characters a lot of volume. And the almost cubist way you stylize faces is fascinating!
Clur Thanks man.
Some pixel chars i did for an illustration.

Hey knut! You're building a nice sketchbook in here. A lot of variation and creativity in here. Only, you need to do more studies haha. I know it is a pain because they are little fun compared to the real work. I have a rule of thumb: I spend 2 hours on studies before I allow myself to do anything else (or if I feel like it, more studies). I don't know your schedule in life but I try to do them immediately after waking up. Having a standard moment during the day to do them really helps and makes it less tedious
D.Labruyere thanks for your time. The truth is that i try to do my practice through the different things i do, even if it can't be seen on the result.
ArulaSky thanks, i hope i will not stay only on those things...

I like your compositions, with stuff getting out of the page; it give an interesting dinamic
I have not finished going through your SB yet (but I will) and just thought I would say thanks for visiting mine that was kind of you and doubly so for leaving a comment. when I have finished looking and thinking I will leave you a comment or two if that's ok.
thanks again and all the best with your work mate
A great kind hearted lumbering bullock

Hey Knut, great to see a steady stream of work, and improvement.
You still have an incredible sense of contours and planes.
If any thing I would say work on more descriptive/naturalistic use of values. Stronger contrasts,
and push to really make the forms 'turn' all the way around rather than being sort of flat and lumpy.
Also it would be good to see some work on more realistic proportions. You have a very distinct style,
but stylized isn't always the look you need.
Good stuff man, keep it up.
sketchbook...a kitten dies every time you don't comment
“When forced to work within a strict framework,
the imagination is taxed to its utmost – and will
produce its richest ideas. Given total freedom,
the work is likely to sprawl.”
- TS Eliot
You have a strong style and your abstract work is excellent. I think thats where your strength lies.
I also think you could benefit from studying human anatomy more because while your figures are very dynamic, there's a lack of knowledge of the underlying structure that shows in the final product. Thats pretty much the opposite of what you said in my sketchbook, but looking through your work confirms my reasoning. Without good knowledge of what the bones and muscles are doing under the surface, the overall figure wont look properly realistic or functional.
Not that I'm any kind of expert, and I have a long way to go in my own studies, but I hope my suggestions/observations help a little.
Great sketchbook overall, keep posting and working!
Your characters are coming along really nicely - love your caricatures / extreme proportions - but I would say, be careful as you don't want to lose sight of the fundamentals - your studies have been great so far and you always want to keep that in mind, to create believable characters. The colouring and the armor on the last dude are great.
Hey, great sketchbook! Love the 8-bit stuff further up the page. As has been said more awareness of proportion might help some of your paintings, but it's hard to tell if that's intentional stylization or not
BludHund thanks for your comments i am working on it.
Candra H you are right about how accurate my sketches aren't many times cause of half knowledge or not enough time i am putting on them. Thanks for your crits.
AllyAlbon thanks man. I think it's difficult to loose the fundamentals, as long as you go back and forth continuously to see if something is wrong. If i manage to handle it, it's another topic and the truth is i don't in many cases.
Kvetch on many of those last ones is intentional (on Gabriel let's say) but if you can't see that for sure that means there is a problem with my overall proportions. Thanks for your time!
Smthing to study values and lighting without ref.

So, i basically don't work on Photoshop anymore, except i need to, but today i did a quick study.
Why everytime i save an image from Phtsp is always a little darker than the original is?

Well i dont know what may cause that effect. Maybe you are working in CMYK or something like that? probably its due to compression but still not sure.
Keep up the study is very good
