Hey guys, I decided to put up a sketchbook here to follow my progress and also to get some feedback!
Currently I'm an 18-year-old Finn, studying graphic design/media in Tampere, Finland.

Here's some doodles from yesterday and also some recent works (I need to get my paintings on my computer but I'm never satisfied with the quality since I have to photograph them)
I love the sketch practices at posemaniacs.com so here's some (1 min, 30sec and 10sec practices)
Also, some other sketches (not timed)
Some recent photoshopstuff:
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.
And a dragon-doodle which I might turn into a finished piece some day:
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!
Nice sketchbook so far. Keep it up!
Okay, bunch of pictures I've done in the past month or so: (All of these are about 2-4 hour semi-speedpaints)
Life drawing started! three hours each Tuesday, I couldn't be happier. So, here's my first life drawings: (They're a bit cut-off because of the big size.. Then I photographed the rest)
First three are 4-minute poses:
3min to 1 min poses
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!
That last face covering your sketchbook is just sweet! keep going!
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.
