    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

    Great work!! Congrats!
    Try to render better your paintings and careful with your colors, sometimes they could darker your piece!
    Keep it up!

    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!
