    Thanks for dropping by mate, how you been?
    I'm really digging the life studies, especially the inked mohawk girl. Good solid form.
    While the human body is one solid mass, it is also a complex mechanism of overlapping forms and actions veiled by skin. Think of the underlying structure more as machinery.
    The forms are deffinately getting more interesting, and there's good balance in the poses.
    Keep it up.

    Rotor: Haha, no problem mate. I'm fine, although busy as hell lately... Working on some images for a starting game company and school is taking all the energy that's left... Just waiting for this schoolyear to end.
    But thanks man! And I agree, I need to start working on anatomy and figure out the machinery behind it all, thanks for pointing it out.
    GEB: Thanks, cool to hear! I'll do my best.
    Saara_: Luuraan hirvittävän työmäärän alla, tosiaan mitä Rotorille tuossa jo kirjoitinkin. Peliprojektista ei saa valitettavasti julkaista kuvia vielä, jossakin vaiheessa varmaan nekin uppailen sitten kyllä.
    weashell: Haha, thanks man! Reference and studies are really important, a matter that you can't really talk too much about. I'll see if I'll get back into the samurai, that might be just true what you said about the tattoo.
    Thanks for pointing it out, I'll try to be patient and you too man!

    Hey ya all!
    I've been very busy lately, at the moment I'm doing some stuff for a starting game company plus we have the animation to make at school...
    Haven't really had time for personal stuff and now I'm trying to get back into that, always such a struggle after doing tons of stuff with descriptions.

    But here are a couple of things I have tried to work on, probably will keep these as a perspective practices since I'm not that happy with the colors and the composition of either one.
    I guess it's time to get my creative juices and skills flowing with some photostudies first, to remind me of colors and light also.

    Thank you so much for the kind words on my sketchbook. Much appreciated.

    This is a really great sketchbook you've got going on here. One thing that i especially noticed is that you're not afraid to paint all the hard things. I can't say the same for myself. This is one of the most diverse SB's I've seen here on CA.

    Mikko Voipio: No problem mate, great to see such improvement.
    I've always been keen in trying out even difficult things, but on the other hand there is still so much to do with the basics it's not always a good thing.
    But thank you very much for your comment, I appreciate a lot what you are saying.

    Some stuff from the modeldrawing classes. Sadly they are over for this semester, but next Autumn I tell you...!

    A tired post in the middle of the night, here we go. An Edelfelt masterstudy in progress plus a practice in skintones plus portrait...
    Not really happy with the face or any faces I usually do, that might be a good point to get into more.

    Mr. Edelfelt kicked my ass hard but I'm learning.
    Probably tomorrow I'll update more and tell about the things I went through when doing the study, since it was really interesting actually.

    htkpeh: Thanks man, I appreciate that! I'll do my best.

    Getting back on the saddle slowly, still lots of other stuff to do but I must practice too. So a colorstudy, just to remind me of how it goes.

    The moment when suddenly after painting for couple of hours you look at your picture and... no, no no. Sigh.

    Anyway, I tried to implement some stuff from the last photostudy in this as you can see (especially what comes to colors), but I don't know.
    There might be too much contrast or something... Practice, loads of more practice.

    Critique is very welcome.

    Struggle struggle struggle!
    Trying a different lighting setup than usually, cold light and warm shadows. This is interesting, though the composition is quite right-heavy. Maybe I try to push too much or without enough focusing.

    Well, tomorrow we are having a fieldtrip at school and we get to choose an animation studio or a mobile game company to visit, I chose the latter.
    Also there is this mediahappening in Helsinki (I think) called Kevätgraph, there are probably gonna be lectures about games and interactive stuff.
    Besides than being interesting, the whole trip is a good opportunity to sketch during the busride etc, so looking forward to that.

    Peace out o/ And inspiration... I will find you! Just wait.

    Some sketches and progress on the last painting, we'll see where it goes.
    I'm using a limited color palette and also as I mentioned before cool light and warm shadows, it is pretty interesting to try out how it works the best.

    Ohh, I really like the female you did in that last post. I think you should add more values like that to your sketches. Really takes it up a level! Nice stuff all around, hope to see more!

    Hi,

    Just took a swing through your sb! Loving the "epic" style and sense you're developing...and diggin your designs, concept and color choices.

    I really enjoyed seeing your rhino and the character that came from that study...it turned out great...love that forearm and hand!

    Keep it up!!

    Sycra: Oh yeah, that could be nice actually. I probably need to get some thicker/watercolor paper sketchbook though, the paper didn't like the moisture too much. But nice to hear that you like it, thanks!
    logartis: It was really interesting actually, applying what you've learned in photostudy into a completely new piece. Thanks!
    Jephyr X: Thank you very much, I'll try my best!

    Some random sketching, a finished painting for a game we are making at school now and some commission thumbnails.

    Busy busy busy but that's cool, awesome projects going on and I try to Livestream more often also now. I'm a little bit rusty on that still since I haven't had that much time to really sketch and do my own stuff, but please feel free to come chat and paint with me nevertheless when I'm online -> www.livestream.com/vablo

    Your illustrations are refreshingly vibrant and atmospheric. I like how much focus you put into getting those perspectives right. Keep up the good work

    Jon Guinn: Thank you very much, and I'll do my best!
    Rotor: Thanks for the support mate, I truly appreciate the slap in the ass!

    Yesterday was a funny day. Drinking some beer on a sunny terrace, wine at a park, drawing this and that and socializing. Also I witnessed probably the weirdest situation in which some random dude wanted to trade a baby for a lightsaber replica, in the middle of central Tampere. Like what.

    Aaanyway, I tried out iPad's sketching tools for the first time outside, and it was pretty nice actually. Also a couple of sketches from yesterday, classmates from life, monster not.

    Ps. There's gonna be some Livestream-action later today -> http://www.livestream.com/vablo

    Here's a couple of works I have been working on for quite a while now... Any critique and comments would be very welcome.

    Also a painting I did while streaming, and a note to myself: don't stream while too tired, that was quite a process.

    Oh, yeah!
    I also made a commentary of one of my paintings, just talking about the workflow how it went with that piece.
    Hope it can be helpful to someone, check it out and share your thoughts -> Reaver - My Painting Process

    Thanks for the support guys, now I'm off to work.

    Continuation to the previous post, again some Livestreaming while doing this. If everything goes well (= Livestream doesn't fail *fingers crossed*),
    I might be able to do a "tutorial"-kinda thingie or at least progress video out of this because for now all is saved. Yay!

    Crits and comments very welcome as always.

    Really cool work mate, im glad to see you're still working hard, let's keep this motivation!

    On the last one i think the legs are a bit awkward, it's a great shame because the torso/arms/hands are really well excecuted ! you should do some more anatomy studies in my opinion, you have no idea how better your stuff will become.
    At the moment I think anatomy is the thing you got to nail down and study a lot, maybe do some more still life drawing like you did in your previous post.

    One thing you could try also is to colorize your black/white images at early stages and then work directly with colors, that you may add some cool color touches on top of that, it should feel less monochromatic.

    Overall i'd just suggest you to study more from life/books and then apply the stuff you learned. Now let's draaaawwwwww

    Nice work mate , I am happy that you are trying out more stuff , like the last one , focusing only on some part of the process is I think a really good way to learn. There is so much to know otherwise that it is impossible to master everything at the same time. Those type of challenge would be good for you I think.
    Also the last paintings you ve made are really cool , I especially like the one with the robot-like character and the king , it has a real sense of solidity in the design and shading. Good work.

    I hope I will see more stuff soon

    timo.: Thanks for the comment man, I greatly appreciate what you are saying. I kinda agree with the legs in the ghostlady
    (whatever) picture, I will probably have to change them somehow at one point, although I'm not sure yet how I'm gonna do it. And anatomy, true man, so true... Maybe because it's such a big area I
    constantly try to avoid it in a way, I don't know how to start tackling it. It's pretty much like fighting a dragon with a stick, or at least feels like it.

    But I guess it'll come, just by drawing and repeating things from photos and books hell of a lot, little by little.

    Thanks for looking and for the tips and ideas man. A real kick in the ass once in a while keeps one going, I'll do my best!

    mushroomz: Haa, thanks mate! Yeah, there are so much stuff to go through that it'll easily get overwhelming and might make you confused or depressed.
    And nice to hear some feedback from the robot/king picture, I'm not sure if it's gonna end up being anything special because I have been struggling with it for quite a while...

    Anyway, thanks for dropping by mate, great to hear from you. I'll try to clear my head first and set somekind of a goal for myself, I'll do my best.

    Black Sun S.: Thanks for the comment, I'll try to keep the colors better in mind in the future. Cheers!

    Today was quite a bad day for me, I don't even know why. Somehow things I need to learn and think about, they just seem like huge mountains that I have no way or tools for climbing over them.
    The mixed feeling of being lost, depressed and hopeless, not really sure where I am going and why.

    I have been reading quite a lot of articles, blogposts and texts concerning concept art (and well, art in general) and also checking out lots of amazing paintings made by professionals working in the field lately.
    Pretty much everyone of those people have a really distinguishable style and really creative/cool solutions to things. Then I look at my own stuff and.. I feel lost, trying to emulate and do things I'm not really cabable of doing yet.

    One thing I also have noticed about my own stuff is that I don't plan my paintings enough. Maybe not the most, but pretty many of them kinda come from just fooling around, throwing paint on the wall and seeing what sticks.

    3 things for myself to do:

    1. Focus more - Have an idea for a painting, even if it came with random doodling, make different thumbnails, think about the concept, everything. Plan stuff.
    2. Study more - The very essential stuff for making art: anatomy, colors, lights, forms, perspective.
    I have done some of this, but for example anatomy is something I have been afraid of practicing for a too long time.
    3. Find my own goal - Think about what is the thing I want to do, what kind of art, what kind of style and tryout all kinds of different stuff, subjects and tools.

    I tried to dig into anatomy a little bit today, but I guess I'll have to go one part at a time for so long that I feel comfortable drawing it.
    Anyway, here are some ballpoint sketches from Bridgman, photos, real life and imagination.

    Thanks for the support guys, let's keep the ball rolling!
