    So today at school I forgot my pencil drawing stuff , so I just had a ballpoint pen.Never did stuff with that and it was really fun!Too bad I had only paper with lines though...
    this is the only thing worth posting so

    Hey Othrandir! Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook a week or two ago!

    2 things
    You have some really nice stuff in here. I can see a lot of improvement! Especially recently. You're on a really good path doing all of that anatomy work. Keep it up!

    Aaaand I REALLY want that cup of coffee from the previous page! :p

    Crazy Pills - Hey, thanks man! And thank you for coming by too Yeaah , I know it looks sooo good!

    Ok , so here's for the past couple of days.Too bad , no sketchbook pages from imagination , though I really must do those , I think it's important.

    Some hands - some from reference some from imagination




    Quick 30 sec figures - sorry for the qualiti , apparently the paper is a bit transparent so you can see the bottom part of the scanner and the levels are craazy


    figure studies,lots of them - I learned soo much from those crazy angles , I really recommend doing studies from parkour photos!









    Two quick 45 mins environments from ref


    A really loose and bad selfportrait , my hair actually does look like that! haha I had long hair for long time and since I cut it off , my hair's been growing super weird

    did another creature - turned out even worse than the previous one! hahaI love doing them though , I can really let myself go , since I'm making them up!


    Probably will post again tonight , so c ya!

    Great work here! Since you started studying loomis you're head construction has gotten massively better, and I like all of the studies and environment paintings you're doing. Keep it up and you'll just get better and better!

    So I did some more stuff on the competition environment , for about 10 mins.I was simply too frustrated with my end result , so I just had to touch some stuff up.I still don't like it , but I don't think I ever will



    and some pencil shits : sketches , dragon studies , shoulder and hand anatomy practice

    quick character concept - the influence is obvious of course
    I'll try to put in some color and I have to give him some more personalizing details.

    Joho - Hey!Thanks for stopping by again also thanks for the tip about the arm.You were so right I suggest we do 2 speedpaints today , since we missed the one last night(again , I'm sorry)

    Okay , so here's to what point I got the character.I'm not going to do more on him , because I'm lazy and I want to do other stuff, like studies and environments!!

    blah...










    quick studies , I decided to learn and not do everything like a machine.I tried doing the studies with no sketch beforehand , only with colors while really thinking about them.

    So today was a really cool day!I got up like 8h , I walked the dog and I started drawing.I listened to Bobby Chiu podcasts and I discovered Alex Pascenko!! I mean , I knew his name but never his super duper amazing pencil and painting skillz!!! What the hell is this guy's brain made of??Soo cool...so yeah , I looked at his stuff and I just saw just how much my anatomy sucks,So I did more studies.Damn , I'm lazy , I have to do more , but oh well , that's it for now.I really want to learn light and color.Something I'm really not good at , so I did some fast environment studies ( 10-15 mins each? )really focusing on that.Looks like I suck at that too I have to do more. You don't get better with just words though so here's some of yesterday's and today's stuff!

    10-15 mins environments from photos






    two fast portraits - 20,30 mins probably


    a 50 min extremely crappy doodle, I need to get better at imaginative stuff

    some hands from posemaniacs and life



    some eyessssss

    30 secs poses , sorry they're that big , but I don't have time to go to photoshop right now and make them small and stack them








    some arms from life and mind

    and sketchbook pageeeeeesss faces are from mostly from mind , Only the girl with the weird mouth placement is from a photo





    I did some legs from mind while waiting for the scanner

    cheers guys , gotta go!

    Crappy post today , so enjoy!!
    Here's some legs


    Hands from life


    and some crappy faces , damn my anatomy sucks so much.I need to stop being so goddamn lazy...

    Here's a quick doodle from this morning.Pretty much everything about the face is off.I can't even look at it.I have to do loads more of these.It turned out that painting is quite more different than drawing.Who knew ?!
    I was trying to experiment with light and color , but I still can't achieve a strong atmosphere , and that's soo important in a painting


    blah...that's it , I've got some studies on the side but they're not worth showing.This post was too little , I need to up my game and draw more!

    From yesterday ( I'll try to update every morning)

    Some sketches
    The good think is that it's getting a bit easier for me to imagine different poses that are not standart
    The bad thing is that my anatomy (above all) and everything else still sucks Gotta keep working
    Yesterday was such a crazy day , so this is all I could squeeze out
    Here's some hands to warm up .



    Sketchbook pages all from mind...blaah my imaginative work sucks so much.What should I do ? More stuff from mind , more studies??Guess I'll try to do both 'till I see progress




    A 1 hour thing again , trying to focus on lighting and color
    I really want to understand how it should work!Until then - practice

    Thanks a lot for coming by my SB. You seem to be working hard and tackling the hard things (environments etc). Something I would suggest to you is that you would take a bit more careful measurements in the future. I think for example the faces would improve a huge deal if you just took the time to measure.

    Anyway great job with this SB.

    Btw. I'm really sorry for the dude in the upper right corner.

    Mikko Voipio - Yeah , no prob man , I'm sure I'll be visiting it soon again You're right about the measurement thing.I am trying to get used t the face proportions.I need to do more , so I can get the hang of it and I need to really think and not just do.
    haha yeah , truly unfortunate for him , but he deserved it ( He slept with my gf )


    Ok I was really lazy the last few days and that's why I didn't upload ( not that anybody cares ) I don't feel bad though , because I read a lot of stuff and I learned a lot. For the next week I have to study a lot for school , but I hope that I will be able to draw a good amount a day.So yeaaaah...my life...whatever...blah blah...now for some "artsy" shits ^^
    oh btw , I bought myself an awesome A3 format sketchbook and I love it, I've never had so much ROOM!!!I love it , the only bad thing is that my scanner isn't big enough so I'll post camera pics.It looks like it doesn't change the quality THAT much so it'll be ok ^^


    Some hands from life ( I really need to get myself a smaller portable mirror, It's so uncomortable with a big one )



    some heads , they're all from mind ( about 100 I think)
    When I was adjusting the contrast something fucked up the quality...sorry...I don't feel like doing it again





    nothing digital though I'll draw more bad stuff and I'll post them so you can laugh ^^

    Some good things going on in here, the last page of heads is a big improvement. Keep churning them out at the pace you are, and you'll get there in no time

    some more hands - On the one I tried a more refined rendering ( you probably can't see it that well because of the pic quality). Haven't really done one of those , but it was really fun and I will definitely do more of those.I actually kinda like the one! weird...I must be getting soft


    aand a couple of old unfinished still lifes

    okaaaay...my last post was 10 days ago and I have so little done!

    nvm , I'll just keep on workin' , no point in me complaining how bad I am.

    some bad 30 secs... still trying to get the figures more action-y





    aaaand to some it all up - sketches and Hogarth studies










    these are really small actually I just zoomed them in



    aaaand digital poop

    some perspective shit




    environment study from one of Noah Bradley 's NZ photos...amazing nature... :X 1hr 30 mins

    EOW thing I finished a day after the deadline - around 7 hours I think

    color experiments , trying to get more comfortable with it...still not working

    quick sucky sketch -

    I was away for 3 days and I brought my tablet , I thought it would be awesome!Painting digital plein air!!...my pressure sensitivity didn't work because of a sucky laptop... X.X :|
    Here's what I could do without breaking the laptop to pieces 2 hrs
