Really good stuff here. Your understanding of shapes and light is very accomplished, as is your rendering. You seem unsure of hands and feet shapes. Some studies of these may be beneficial to you.

inspiring studies! Specially those photopaintings! It seems you've got a very good ability getting color right, as well as volume there.

JackAnimated: Thanks for the kind words, man. You are way, wayyy too right about just that. Came to the same conclusion myself a couple weeks ago...Glad someone gives me a shove.
DARKTHUR: Well thank you, kind sir. Thou art a gentleman and a scholar.
I'm getting more used to it by now, the studies. A year ago I frowned at the notion of trying shit like this. Buuut, well, I tried it, and fell in love : )
Henrique Ventura : Thanks a lot, bro. I'll get on it whenever I have time. Tomorrow, I think. (school is taking up a lot more time than it should).
dolmen : Ooh, that old one. Hard to do. Thank you though, for the ever so nice compliments : )
I'll get right on making more.
And now for something completely different:
This is going to be a semi-big update, since I've done a couple small things here and there. I went on a trip to bergen for the weekend, and I've also been busy with school, so I haven't had the time to update here.
30 min each, or something like that.
This was balls hard. Fuck you Caesar. Sometimes I hate you so much, simply because you're hard to paint in that single screenshot. Great movie though...
And now! For the piece de resistance! Something from imagination. Maaan has it been a while since I've done anything significant that way. I've been way too souped up in mah studies to do stuff like this. I've missed it a lot.
School sucks away the creativity in me, but I managed to persist, and create this. Mostly as a way to discover a working.....workflow to apply to imaginary stuff. Without further ado, here it is:
Also, something I found funny. This is a comparison with my first ever study. It was about a year ago or something, and you can clearly see the difference:
That's it. I'm off for the night. Cheerio.

Right, I'm back again. Got some stuff done, though nothing major. I'm getting to some really satisfying results, considering how much time I spend on them. Next to nothing compared to what I used to spend on the simplest illustrations...
Anyways, I made some color keys. these were fun to do, and you can see the improvement in my workflow from each attempt... I actually spent just about 15 min on each, so yeah. 'T was cool.
next up: an evironment speedy I did in half an hour or so. I suck at this shit, snow that is, but it's very satisfying to get these results out of so little actual time spent painting. Feels powerful in a way.
and just some random dwarf. trying to do something slightly different from the last dude i drew. Doing some oriental...ish armor on him. Fun.
And that's it for now. Next time I'll probably dig up a camera to give you some photos of my irl sketchbook : )
Next challenge: feet...

Really great update Toffers, I love those little environment sketches. Now lets see those hands and feet
September 21st, 2011 #22
Jackanimated: Well thanks. Got a couple more of those now. And I've gotten on to hands and feet. have about 40 feet drawn now in my moleskine thingie. I'll take a couple pics and upload them in a minute.
Vumi: Thanks, brah. I'll get right on it when I have the time.
Righty o'. I have some paintings, each at different stages and so on. Fun to do, trying to get them exhibitioned at some gallery thingie later this week or something. could be cool.
This is one of them. kind of happy, though I have this bad habit of overworking the colors WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY too fucking much. Bad habit. Gotta work on that.
Here's the first draft. It's kinda strange, just a sketch in the beginning, but I got hooked on it and couldn't stop painting. Those damn mountains,man.
Fuckin' hands, man. how do they work? Going to hit up bridgman in the near future to solve the obvious problem. I have no painterly spatial sense whatsoever...fuck.
This just..didn't go anywhere. I mean it was the first one that I tried, but I gave up, then went back to it again after the previous I posted. Fun though, most of the time.
and..uhh, yeah. I love this picture so much, so I had to paint it. Don't blame me.

You really capture the weight of forms in your portraits and figure paintings. Keep up the good work! Your landscapes are also very vibrant especially that last one with the snow.
Every artist was first an amateur.

MeZergy: Thanks, mate. Always appreciated : ) I like doing those enviros, and I find it funny that the one that I put the least amount of work into, and cared the least about fares better with you. Heheh, I need to be more accustomed to catering to other people's needs with my paintings.
Anyways, I'm not sure if I can post again within such a small timeframe, but I'm up on the top of the first page anyways, so It's easier this way.
The sketchbook promised, with feet:

Gaaah, I hate it when no one comments in between updates. Makes me feel awkward and filthy somehow....anyways I'll start this updtate with a bang!
Did this half from reference, half not. Was cool to do, so I did so.
Couple quick speedpaintings. I recorded the second one I think, maybe I'll upload it if anyone deems it interesting. The first one went relatively well, and it had the workflow I really want in painting.The second one...was a problem. I constantly struggle with where to start, and where to go to, so I need to fix that eventually.
A few composition sketches, I'll upload the rest when I'm ...well, done with 'em.
This..was weird. took like 6 hours. Not on this single painting, but I painted several paintings, then painted over them, and teste various brushes I got from the imaginefx cd. Immensely helpful some of them, others not so much. probably spent hours just..testing things. Fun, very much so.
quick 30 minute sketch or whatever. I suck at guns though, need to work on that.
and this...well, shit. They're pretty much dancing.

Wow Toffers, you have been very busy I see. I have some catching up to do
I really enjoy looking at your paintings, so many colours used. As for hands, I am no expert, but to visualise them as 3d objects, it can help to break them down in your head, or on the page as cylinders, for the fingers anyway. Then draw bands around them, following the shape. Does that make sense.
Look at Bridgeman for hands, but also Burne Hogarth - he breaks things down into beautiful masses of flesh.
Looking forward to seeing more.
