    Currently I'm an 18-year-old Finn, studying graphic design/media in Tampere, Finland.

    Stay tuned..

    I love the sketch practices at posemaniacs.com so here's some (1 min, 30sec and 10sec practices)

    Tough to learn life drawing on pose-maniacs. Any life drawing where you are? Also, you might want to start doing graphic design now, see how you like it, show them you're interested in the main focus of the program.

    Hi Keith! Thanks for your comment I try to get people pose for me whenever I have a pen in my hand and they are willing to, haha. When I browsed through the critique section I found this page that i'm now using: http://pixelovely.com/tools/gesture.html, it's a LOT better since the posemaniacs muscles are just flat

    Here's some new stuff:

    Here's a picture I really liked but after a few days not looking at it I noticed so big anatomy problems it really made me angry that I used so much time on it. (I did the whole sketch and lineart in one night, really wasn't a good idea.

    Hey there! welcome to the CA. Nice work ... I really like your approach to giving all parts of the sketch an equal amount of attention. too often you see people concentrate on only one aspect like the eyes and then everything else suffers. Cant wait to see more!

    Some quick life sketches.







    I moved to a new city and right next to me is this big workers' institute where they have courses on life drawing and such. I'm starting one at the start of September, it's only 40 euros for 36 lessons.

    Heyya Minelo!

    You have some good work here! I really like your sketches in post #17!
    Also I love blonde girl in post #18 and the warrior in #19!

    I can see that you are doing a lot of good practice too!

    Keep up the good work, and keep posting!


    See you around!

    Life drawing time again.

    I am very annoyed with my scanner. I can't find a way to calibrate the contrast, nor can I find an option where I can cancel automatic cropping. I know that not putting anything right next to the side it won't crop, but when I have a paper size A3 it will automatically crop it. It is VERY frustrating.. Hence the missing of legs/arms/anything..

    I did some longer poses today.

    Nice stuff! I love the portrait in post #23, her expression is really intense! The contrasting/blueish colors really make the image pop.
    Keep up the studies!

    I really like those most recent doodles, and love the feel in the recent charcoal/pencil figure drawings. I like the technique you've got going there.
