    Satu: Thanks! Will do! Hope you had a nice midsummer

    MeteorCat: Thanks! I feel like it's really easy to make them dramatic - just toss in some really white lights and you're done haha.

    nothing much. Started a SP but the lighting changed alot and I just called it off. Lousy wrong colours and stuff. And it's really stiff and as always the edge control is bad. Oh well. Was fun

    EDIT: removed, It was baaaaaaad.

    great work man. They look like master studies and they're awesome! I also like your quick landscapes work on previous page.

    Now that you'll be gone for a week, I hope someone would make a Hyperbolic Time Chamber so I could catch up to you by the time you get back!hahah. Keep doing what youre doing.

    Stuff to get me back in the groove. I did some traditional stuff while I was away but not much.

    Masterstudy, some thingie from head and a quick SP that shouldn't be uploaded.

    Wow, you're doing really good. I see a lot of great ideas in your environments, cool character creations and nice colors in your work - I definitely like what you do, guess I'll go through your whole sketchbook when I have some time, it's awesome!

    LastGen: Thank you! Glad you like them. I'm afraid if you go through the SB you'll find alot of bad stuff

    Scribblescribble. Sorry I'm still posting such small updates on the character, I'm just working on it on and off - not very hard though. Also did more SPs but they turned out pretty bad.

    Nice sketchbook, Kvenh. I love how every self portrait, you're rocking those headphones. Keep it up.

    Oh, you're wrong! It took some time, but it was jaw-dropping. You made such a great progress, I wonder why this sketchbook is not being hyped.
    The hard work you put in and your determination is admirable, really. May you be blessed for being such a motivation, proving that hard work is the way to success.

    I'm wondering, do you already work as an artist?

    One thing I'd like to mention, though, I'm definitely not in the position to give you any kind of critique. I see a lot of self portraits here and Pie Monster has mentioned it before: You seem to avoid anatomy, especially faces. You already changed that and that's cool.
    I believe that doing a lot of self portraits might lead to a certain ideal that is being created, but which also doesn't offer the opportunity to go for dramatical - but still aesthetic - changes. Go crazy, just make it believable.
    Chances are that I'm totally wrong, which would be even better. It would be a shame if you would attach to a linear and bad habit.

    I'm gonna follow your work and hopefully I'll be able to outwork your advantage, hehe! ... I'm serious

    lenzerwin: Thank you! Haha yeah, for some reason I prefer using headphones over using my speakers.

    LastGen: Thank you! That really means a lot. Still I feel like I'm not working nearly hard enough, just slacking all day long. I'm constantly trying to work harder, with various results. I'm not working as an artist yet - I'm not confident enough with my work. I'm trying to slowly work towards it but so far I haven't managed to put together a portfolio worth showing to anyone. Every time I start working on a piece I think I'm going to finish to a decent level I just feel like it's not meeting the standards I would like and go back to doing studies.

    Also thank you for the crit! It's always helpful to receive constructive criticism - one of the reasons I hang around here; hoping to pick up a few things from others. I'm definitely not comfortable with anatomy. I've gone through alot of anatomy studies during this summer but I haven't uploaded them. I feel like they've helped a bit but not nearly enough, it's just something I struggle with. My faces from imagination look horrible haha. With the SPs I've hoped to sharpen my observational skills as well as my knowledge of the face structure but I'm not sure how well it has gone. That shits hard. You're totally right though, I should start really working on the faces more.

    ---

    Crap. I had to attend a family event today and didn't have much time to draw so heres just some stuff I was scribbling together. There was few creature designs from imagination but they looked fairly bad.

    Anyways, just posting for the sake of posting. Trying to get back to the post-once-a-day -groove.

    Nice work lately! The 2nd thumbnail on the bottom row is appealing. Nice mood in there.

    :] Keep it up Kvenh!

    And uuh now even more when you said its from imagination.
    Just breathtakingly beautiful. Like this latest wip too hehe. Oh and been meaning to ask you, where do you find the ref photos for your portrait-studies? Always so neat lightning on them.

    That first sketch in 525 rocks. Great use of reflected light.

    The last character looks pretty interesting too, although the lighting is slightly confusing. Maybe you could separate light and shadow and define the main light source bit more. Judging from his stare, it's not tobacco in that pipe.

    Satu: Thanks! I just gather my images all over the place. When looking for references I usually use some imageboards / tumblr / flickr. I've set a extension in my browser so I can save images with a hotkey to a certain folder, makes gathering them alot easier.

    MeteorCat: Thanks!

    ismo: Thanks! Good to see you back man. Yeah you're right about the light. I didn't plan anything beforehand (like usual, sigh.) so it looks like shit. I already stopped working on it. I kinda liked the idea thoguh so I'm trying to do something similar.

    LastGen: Thanks man!

    Just some quick stuff. I've been drawing and painting live model this week so theres not much to show at the moment. Also among my first contacts with oil painting - that shits hard but alot of fun.

    oh man I should really start making stuff thats more finished - they just always start looking like shit mid-way and I call it off. Oh well.

    This week will be plein airs with oils all week long, yeah!

    I'll try to fix this later. The values are off and theres no real sense of scale and shit.

    Yeah, I'd love to see some more rendering. I'm pretty sure that it would look great if there a some warm light beams on the stones, a nicely rendered sky and some crispy edges.
    The composition has a lot of symmetry - is that on purpose? Otherwise some overlapping shapes(the stones for example) would help out.

    I love your environments...though, I'm still waiting for the oil paintings, hehe!

    Done with this weeks oil stuff. Back to grinding that art-exp.

    Some scribble. ugh. Wanted to do something with the b/w -thingie but I just felt like the colours didn't work. I don't know why but I just feel like I can't work from bw to colour. I'm probably doing something wrong.
