    There's a list of the books in that series at here. At least the library in Turku had a bunch of them. He teaches to draw knots by laying out dots in a grid first and make the weaves go around them a bit like you did on that sketchbook page. Celtic mazes is another one worth a look IMO, they look so complex but his instructions make the actual drawing work easy, even though designing a good pattern is always difficult.

    what...I don't even...I don't know what this is.

    Growing increasingly frustrated with values/tones...again. I thought I knew this stuff already, but quick glimpse at the sketchbook of Cole Eastburn s sketchbook and works makes it clear that I'm missing something.

    aaarghhh...still not where I wan't to be. I guess I have to go back to basics and draw some simple shapes to figure things out. I notice more and more that I can't quite do cast shadows. I know how they form and work, but I'm still having hard time predicting them.

    Hey Ville_S,
    some great works in here - I especially love your traditional works (paintings and moleskine pencil sketches) but your digitals are also coming along nicely.
    Hell, you even inspired me to do some LotR studies too, a while back
    Inventing cast shadows is hard, you could try a technical approach, with a single lightsource,
    then draw lines from there across your subject and see where that takes you, or, as most people say, study from life.
    Observe, draw. Invent, draw. Repeat.
    Other than that, keep up the good work!

    Harmageddon:

    Thanks for the kind words. I checked your LOTR study. Good job dude! really nicely done!
    And yeah, study study study, that's all there is to it.

    A value study based on Kingdom of heaven screen shot. It's not particularly good movie, but boy is it purdy.

    Thanks man! Glad you like it

    I know, inventing light is a pain - I can't do it either.
    Some people on this forum can, and make you feel like they are miles ahead and sometimes
    I'm like "wtf am I doing, this is pointless, these guys are too awesome"
    But then I remember why I'm doing this. Because I f*cking love doing it!
    And I know that these guys were once where I am now: can draw, pretty good, not great . . yet.

    Someone said I should buy the book "color and light" by James Gurney.
    I did not buy it yet, but I think I will. It apparently explains a lot of light and how to play with it.
    Also there is a Burne Hogarth book on this, I think is't called light and shadow.
    Anyway, keep it up!

    The box on the corner of the page has very convincing sense of depth. I also like the combination of tight and loose brushing on this one!

    That environment sketch is looking pretty cool man, and the Mouth of Sauron study is superb. Keep it up.

    quick update before I head to campus.

    Gotta crank up the speed if I'm to make it to the deadline.

    Smuli: Thanks! I have been trying to follow your advice of painting loosely and reserving the details to the focal point.

    Droid: thankyou! I will.

    Dino painting sketch.
    I know it's rough but I wouldn't mind getting some critique on the values and composition.

    The last version looks very realistic when I squint my eyes, great mood and foliage detail! There's lots going on at the edges, drawing the eye but if you're going to add detail on the beast, I bet that will help. On the earlier version, you can tell much better the scale/distance of the dino because there's clear perspective on the ground. On the new one, all of the ground plants are so dark that they seem to be in the immediate foreground, I think showing even just a strip of the lighter ground the dino stands on would give more depth. Those things said, I really like the foggy mood and the feel of being there, observing it from a hideout!

    On the boar pic, nice details on the boar's face and the whole pic is pleasure to look at it thanks to the control of tight vs. loose!

    Smuli: cheers dude. Very valid points. I tried lighting up the foreground a bit, but yhen it seemed that I was loosing the murky feeling in the pic. Depth remains an issue, though and I feel like the only way out of it is to put somethig in the foreground that clearly overlaps some of the elements in foreground and the animal itself.

    btw, wheres the updates dude? Hoping to see some new stuff on you sketchbook.

    update on the dino painting. Changed the pose of the animal a bit, and added more detail.

    What I really really like about your digital stuff is the texture work. Amazing how you pull them off, and it looks simple (I bet it isn't, though), but great looking.

    I currently struggle with textures a lot, looking for various tricks, brush settings, etc..
    But seeing your works I'm starting to realise there are no shortcuts, right?

    Very nice sketchbook man! Your pencil work and figures have develop a lot, very sick now. Your env designs and compositions are really nice too and I like how you go about those contour studies. Good textures and your working in all mediums so just keep doing what your doing it looks great.

    Awesome new works here since I last visited! I really like the dino painting. The textures and overall brushwork (? is that even a word) looks very nice on it. Keep it up!

    MrMagic: Thanks. Honestly, I don't think I know what I'm doing when it comes to textures.
    There's lot's of trial and error involved in my paintings.

    TFsean: Thanks for the encouraging words!

    Satupeikko: Thanks! I'll try.

    Not much painting of late. Got hooked on Sculptris again.
    Some dino skull (WIP).
    I really ought to get back and finish those last two paintings. I like the boar pic, and it could work well as a portfolio pic. The dino painting on the other hand bugs the heck out of me. It looks so flat! I need to figure out where I made the mistake so I wont repeat them in my future paintings.
