Hello there, I'm 21 years old and I'm trying to get better at painting.
I hope you'll take part in this wonderful journey, preferably with joy.
Thanks for checking this out already, though what the hell are you doing here
on the first page of my sketchbook? Move on backwards to my more recent
stuff! Lest you see terrors you had never imagined...
If you ever have any questions, or you want help, all you need to do is shoot me a message or comment here.
Can't hurt, right?

Reason: Bro, do you mind?
I didn't get to do so much for this update, but considering I was busy most of the day I'd say that it went ok.
I know the second one is very weak, but ehh, it's a quick 5 minute sketch. Deal with it : )
I had a really bad day with these. I don't even know why they went so wrong, more so than they really ever do for me. I guess I'll do these again at some point. Maybe I was just too sleepy. I don't know.
Haven't had the opportunity to paint for a while now. Feel guilty... Weird that.
Anyways; I did some still life attempts at some cheaply made helmet I had lying around my room. Set up a place near my computer to paint it and so on. However it was very hard, as the spot I was sitting in interfered somehow with how my observation went. I need to fix that. To get some critique on these would be nice. Don't know exactly what I'm doing wrong here.
Without further ado, here they are:
This is my first attempt. I went straight to color, which was a major mistake.
You have a lot of great works here, and your portraits and figures look good. You seem to like somber and darker color schemes – nothing wrong with that! – but I'd love to see something that uses brighter or more cheerful colors. ;D
Dandylion : Thanks a lot! Uhm, I'll try to do something cheerful : ) something High-key or something. could be fun!
JesseM : Thanks to you too : ) I don't really notice that I use texture, but I guess it's true. I have some sort of brush that does that stuff. I like it a lot, hence the texture all over the place : P
Got to some painting these past two days. Not much, a couple hours. But I did something, and I think it turned out well. I didn't have the time to finish the still life, but the photography turned out well...just...don't look at the hands : )
School caught up, life sucks. Blah blah whatever.
I got shit done, and the weird part is that I see some improvement. I think. The self portrait didn't quite turn out as it should, though the study went rather well, except for the hair.
The other ones were quite quick, not much to talk about.
I'm enjoying painting more and more by the day, that feels good : )
