Joho - ...ok... :|
Christoffer - I'll definitely do that , mate! Thanks for the comment!
Oh wow , page 5 !! Better start it with some good stuff!
So it's been a long time since I posted. Everything is pretty much the same though
I won't be able to post anything but digital stuff , because my sketchbook is too big for the scanner and my father took the camera with him ( He works as a ship mechanic and he travels a lot ) . You'll probably get bored anyway , I mean it's something like 30 pages of shits
so here's some creature sketches
environment studies from screenshots and photos
Here I tried using only hard edged brushes , so I had to pick every color.I'll never finish this , but I learned a lot from it so I'm glad!
this is a quick sketch I did for my cover in Facebook
Ilya Repin study , that guy was Amazing! :X
girl photo study , trying to get my skin tones right
A painting I did for one of the theater groups in a festival for french loving people - done in one night
a painting for a physics talent contest ( I was mostly trying to get an easy A from my teacher ) -also done in one night
here's some details too
Finally I downloaded Alchemy.That shit's fun! Ideas popped in my head so fast after only 4-5 secs of playing around on a blank canvas.So fun.
Here's the first sketch I did with it.
and the following photoshop work up. - probably about 1 hr

I'll probably continue work on it tomorrow...now sleep!

Here's some sketches from boring classes at school ( from the smaller sketchbook.I don't think I'm going to use the other one too much until the camera returns )
and some progress with the dragon thing. I put some basic colors on the main dragons and riders.I had to get rid of the knight in the foreground though.I'll try to think of something else to put there ... but what??...hmm...we'll see
Bleh , sorry for the one image update , but I wanted to drop some progress on the dragon piece.
I still can't think of what to put instead of the knight.It may be another knight , but I can't think of the pose . I guess I'll have to keep thinking.I have to fix the lighting on the dragons.It's amazingly wrong right now :X argh...so much things to fix
I started a livestream btw , if any of you feels like joining me sometime
wow - good progress and I really like your last sketchbook pages and the Ilya Repin Study. *Applause*
Klaustrophil - Thanks a lot man!
recent shits I just switched to RGB sliders... it's hard maan I like the results though
quick sketch from imagination - about 2 hrs
dragon thing - 1hr 40 mins with the sketch underneath - here's the progress video!
and some terrible head sketches in photoshop
I like your pencil work, and I like the dragon (#123) where you kept the lines of your pencil. I would keep your lines because lines are your strongest point atm. Keep it up!
pixel cheetah - Thank you man ! Haha , it's weird , someone on cghub actually gave me exactly the opposite crit about the lines
just two pages from a bit ago to fill up space
On the first one , the two with a "K" on top are quick sketches from a Kotaki painting
pixel cheetah - I know man , I was just kidding. Seemed funny to me Thank you again for sacrificing your time for my sketchbook
albino-Z - Thanks man! It means a lot coming from you!
Does anyone know how to scan brown paper without it looking like shit in the end?
sooooo sketches , studies 'n stuff ... ( some of the pencils are studies of other artists work , I'm sorry , I'm only trying to learn )
and some progress on the dragon...omg why is it going so sloooow I think I need to get smarter and understand more of the stuff around me. I think that's the way to get faster...right?
more stuff coming soon
I told you it was coming soon
some sketches mostly
brown paper stuff is so fun! I know it looks like shit , it's partly the scanner's fault
Doesn't matter though... IT'S FUN!
all of these are from imagination , except for the first normal paper sketchbook page ( that one is with studies from awesome artists )
live long and prosper
Crap dude, you're improving so fast!! Gimme whatever vitamins you're taking!
Sycra - Thanks man! Although it's not polite to say "gimme"
So , I tried taking a break from art for about a week. A nice healthy break...turns out I can't Did some sketching yesterday and today
here we goo...craaaaaaappyyyyneeeeeeessss ( All from imagination except for the hands )
Too tired to write anything.
Here's today's stuff... blah my anatomy is still crap
from my livestream ( I didn't touch the tablet for like a week...MASSIVE DIFFERENCE , it's like I forgot everything :X...is this how it's going to be in the future? )
aaaaaaaaaand today's stuff.I didn't do anything yesterday , so today I was feeling super guilty Today was all about art though , so it's good
here's some pencils - sketches and studies mashed up together
I did some eye studies too ( from photos )
a photo study turned massively bad
a photo study I don't mind , but I was too lazy to finish
a digi sketch / portrait - can you believe THAT's supposed to be a woman?!?! Holy crap it doesn't even look human :X I need to work so much more but I'm slackiiiing
And another digi sketch from imagination. This one, although it's not really correct anatomicly , I still like it more than the previous one Either way...a lot more work is needed everywhere...
sketches from imagination and studies from life
super mega terribly wrong awfull sketch
random 10-15 min color studies
shit , I feel like I'm not progressing but getting worse and worse.I gotta work harder , but I feel like shit.Damn.
Nice sketches, but watch out for the face proportions, they are often off. Try to construct the underlying structure of the face, just like you did it with the body in post #140.
pixel cheetah - Thanks man! and you're absolutely right , my proportions freaking suck. Just look at the new batch of shit I gotta think more while I do this...
new stuff - totally uninspired crap I think I'm going to post better stuff a bit later on...bleh I gotta push through the crappy stuff and get the mojo going again
super quick from life ( people in my classroom during school) proportions are fucking terrible.You can see how I was sitting by checking out how slanted the figures are haha
and random again
digi stuff - again uninspired , just doodling
apple logo for kicks haha

Finally made it back. It's amazing to see all your work since Feb of this year!!
In not even one full year of posting you are showing big gains across the board...in your sketchbook/pencils, gestures, studies, digital work etc.
Your Ilya Repin study is very good!
Anyone who complains about doing a lot of "study"...just needs to visit here to see the pay-off.
Congrats and keep up the great work.
Jephyr X - thanks a lot for the compliments man! Although I don't think I deserve them just yet , it's nice to hear that you see any kind of progress ... awesome , thanks again buddy!
here's today's stuff ... I took yesterday off It was Sunday , which was a sunny day and I felt like rewatching Chuck , Friends , How I met you mother and Leverage The whole day ( and part of the night) I did just that and it felt great. No worries for a day. Oh , boy what a blast! But then again it's Monday and I'm back in school , which ofcourse is thrice the worries...since it's the end of the school year our weeks are JAMMED with exams and it fucking sucks because I already am in the summer break mood and studying french , biology , chemistry , history , math , bulgarian / french literature physics and all the other shits they make us learn is like the furthest thing on my mind right now...damn anywaaay here's some stuff from todays boring classes , bus rides and comfy chair at home
usual hands from life
some sketchbook pages ( I'm starting to get a grain more comfortable with imagination stuff...I have so much more to do to get to the draw-whatever-you-want phase )
still struggling with faces obviously
quick animal sketches for fun
a terrible portrait attempt... my digital stuff sucks balls
During summer break I'm gonna get more into digital. Right now with school I don't have any time fore digital , more than 1-2 imagination stuff or studies a day...blah , I'm exhausted any whoo see ya next post
Man, your relentless . Good work, and keep it coming. Your destined for greatness if you keep improving at this pace
Psychobuddy Hey , Thanks a lot man! Hah , I never thought I could be someone's inspiration...perhaps you get inspired easily?
TNiznet Thank you dude , pretty much just working hard , instead of hardly working haha
Newman101 Haha thanks dude! and wow , destined for greatness I dunno , don't give me bites bigger than I can chew I'll definitely try to keep up the pace , although I think it's way too slow right now.I'm just waiting for the school to end and for the summer to begin. MAN , It's gonna be a blast!
so here's some stuffs , some of them are studies of other people's work so don't be alarmed I just wanna learn
first some quick Loomis to kick things off in the morning
and the rest of the sketchy things
this was pretty much the only thing of worth on the page , so I cropped it
and a quick 1 hour mountain sketch to try and get back in to environments...I miss them
I gotta do more stuff maaan , I hate school :X
