    Minelo's sketchbook - life drawing, photo studies, illustrations...

    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.

    Stay tuned..

    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)

    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!

    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.
