    Not much too show for all the time ive spent not posting, but in the last few weeks ive felt huge improvements in my working and thinking so im hoping good things will come. In the meantime, here's my crap.
    Some of it studies, some imaginative work. For old stuff im not going to bother differentiating the two but in the future i will again, its just too many to sort. and im lazy.

    Just for the sake of showing improvement im splitting up the post, stuff in this post is alot more recent and has more concentration/care/aware/passion whatever you call it. Basically I feel like now when I paint im actually thinking "what am I doing right now, how does what im painting work in real life".
    blah blah blah

    one new thing ive been doing which I now love is really small studies. one rule, never zoom in! This is going to really help my work I can already tell.

    last study with the ladybug is really good. I have been looking through this page of your sketchbook and I think it may be a good challenge for you to focus on linework only for a while. You seem to rely on rendering a lot (not that it is a bad thing), so you could try out some more stuff with pencils, fineliners and ballpoint pens (or the digital varation, whatever works for you).

    Been a while. I just gathered what I could, couldnt even remember what i already posted. I think the fact that theres post-it note doodles illustrates that. The rest is mostly just figure studies, alot of them were just me practicing Glenn Vilppu's constructive techniques. There's been so many gaps in my practice for the last two years its hard to talk about any of this, I dont really remember it.
    But I should be posting more new stuff soon, which is far above this thrash (in my opinion)

    So this is the toy I made for my nephew at christmas. It got smashed up within two minutes. I glued it back together.
    His brother also got one, but it was beyond repair...

    Digital study of a sculpt im working on. Though im not sure how much digital work il be doing in the future. I prefer the control I have with traditional.

    A sheep I dont know. My friend did one of these drawings.

    This drawing isnt very clear but there is a sheep standing in front of a fallen tree, the roots are to the right.

    Doodling on post-it notes is great because theres no high expectation.

    When I decided to get back in the practice of figure drawing I decided to use something broad like charcoal so I didnt give details any time.

    Couple of examples in this first page of me not knowing how dark the pigments would go. On top right all that yellow should have been near white. Bottom left was in the evening and the sun was setting.

    Top right I was experimenting with just using cobalt blue and burnt sienna i think. I was trying to find a quick way to black. Bottom right I started using blue for shadows just because its a dark pigment.

    Way up the page you posted some small studies and said "one rule, never zoom in". What is it that they help with? I only ask because I sometimes feel like I am copying when doing studies instead of analyzing. I am trying to go about studying differently, and wondered what the aim is with those studies.

    You have a lot of good stuff, very confident pencil lines too.

    Finally some signs of life of one of the most talented and inspiring artists I ever had the privilege of sharing a seat in the same room with. Awesome figure studies man, your linework and structure has jumped leaps, also loving those watercolors! Welcome back man!

    Just a bunch of things i started over the year but didnt really finish. Most recents at the end. Still in a massive slump, its torture but i think its nearly over.
    Those last few are doodle studies, i just want to get the value, colour and composition, so I use a hard brush with no pen pressure. Its to get myself used to painting again. You know when you havent painted in a while youre a little
    anxious to get through the whole process. I just need to finish a bunch of paintings to get it out of my system, then I can start on a new portfolio piece or something.
    Its been a few years in this slump, and i think ive gotten so low, and just terrified that id never do art again that i should be too scared to stop working now hopefully...
