    Foxhound[DEV]: Thanks a lot, bro. Always appreciated! Also, thanks for stopping by.


    Made some Dwarf Fortress related artwork. I don't really have much to say, other than
    that I'm extremely comfortable working with photoshop, and painting in general now.
    The first is undeniably a good thing, the latter not so. Need to break out of my comfort zone.
    I also did a very serious self-portrait. Also Dwarf fortress related.

    Hi! Lotza good going on with your work...it's good to see you tackling a wide range of subjects and studies too.

    Really digging this one, and this one.

    Keep up the great work!

    Posting to watch. I've already told you about your sketchbook on Bay 12.
    The speedpaint videos look quite interesting, it's time to set the YouTube downloader plugin on them.

    P.S. I've accidentally the rating. Now I see at least 14 guests lurking here, because of me.

    Jephyr X: Thanks a lot. Don't like those myself, but I'm glad you do. That's what it's all about.
    Guardian G.I.: Hahaha, I hope you find them interesting. I liked making them, and I have one in the works. I'll get around to it. Thanks!
    Spideycreed: I don't know why I made that, but I loved making it. I'm glad you like it too, so thank you.
    Sickbrush: Thanks for everything. Learned a lot. Hopefully much more in the future. Thanks!


    Made some studies. Just generally....stuff. Different things,
    all the time. Didn't have so much time as I wanted, but I did
    something at least.
    Last couple things...oh my god I want to murder myself
    because of those. The imagination thingie is ok, all things
    considering. It's more of a value test than anything. The
    haunted forest thing? Well there's really no other excuse
    than that it was 5 in the morning and I was not in the mood
    to paint. huh, I guess that kind of is an excuse.

    I really like some of your work, alot of pretty ladies!
    But sometimes I think it looks like you're not "aware" of what you are doing, like doing the same brushstroke a hundred times without actually thinking about why you're doing the brush stroke in the first place.
    Try always asking yourself "what is the goal and purpose of this picture, what do I want the finished product to look like?" Plan a little ahead in your studies is what I want to say I guess

    That's my 5 cents. Also, please do more lady-studies, please :'(

    Best wishes

    ezekrialase: I will, thank you, hehe.

    in2eternity: And thanks to you too, dude. always appreciated! : )

    Abee: Thanks a lot. But you only like "some" of my work? hahahah.
    Anyways, yeah, that's not my only weakness. I've got some pretty
    huge gaps in my knowledge, and skill. Everything I know how to do
    is basically me thinking really hard for 5 hours, then painting for 2
    three or four times a week. I need to get the pace up. And brushstrokes...well, I have to say that something I admire the most
    in artists, is the brush efficiency that some of them are capable of.
    I wish I had that ability, but wishing is not enough, and that's why,
    believe it or not, I am working towards getting better at that.
    My main concern now isn't that, though. I feel as though my
    concept of anatomy and rendering skills just is NOT what I want it
    to be. I also need to work on gestures. THEN brushtrokes and color,
    and then later we'll see.
    Thanks for stopping by, commenting, and I will paint more pretty
    lady studies. I've got more pictures in need of studying than there's
    grains of sand on the beach.



    Been gone for a while. Away, not painting. Sad. I have to get
    into this shit again.

    Well, I did something new. Tried out Paint tool sai. That shit
    is beyond belief, when it comes to painting with organic,
    shifting colors. It's fucking amazing, the blending and the
    "water" brush or whatever it's called.
    First one was a test, something manga-ish. Fun to do,
    although I suck at that shit. So hard. Second one is more passable.

    whoah nice work man. the paintsai tool stuff is bomb. you have a really good sense of lighting and value. my only crit would be to watch your proportion and drawing a bit since sometimes the heads on your figures are slightly big. other than that, good stuff overall. keep kicking ass bro!

    Really cool stuff man. Love the experimentation of styles. I especially dig the self portrait. They got really good mood. The Studies look great. Some of the stuff from imagination have some proportion problems though. Meshuggah poster is coming out really well, although i feel the head is too big. It reminds i gotta do some stuff like these too. XD. Keep them coming man. good luck.

    Eightball_ : Thanks, bro. Always nice to hear.
    And yeah, I know. Been drawing dwarves for too long, so everybody
    ends up having fucked up proportions, hahahaha. Need to fix that.
    Thanks for stopping by.

    sin eater: Thanks, man. Yeah, I know about the proportions,
    see the answer above, heheh. I'll try to fix the proportion problems.
    And I'm done with the meshuggah thing, but next time I'll fix it.
    Thanks for stopping by.

    just some quick warmup thingies. Fun to do. A little TOO fun if you
    ask me. God, I need to lay off the Paint tool sai, it's like cocaine
    when you get used to it. I also did a speedpainting of one of these things that I'll get around to posting. later.

    I'm currently struggling with a pretty weird, and resilient computer virus at the moment. I'm not sure how that will pan out. Uhm, I did some studies, hoho. And some speedpaints. I need to post those.
    The two to the left are studies, of course, and the two to the right are sketches. God I need to do more environments....

    I'm loving the soft feel of the paintool sai drawings. I can't seem to get that nice effect in photoshop.

    Viruses suck, everytime i get one I end up having to re-format my computer.

    fireblade: yeah, I know right? It's fucked up how
    awesome the strokes get with that program. It's all so watery and
    smooth. It's amazing, though balls hard to use.
    The virus is dealt with now, though. So no more trouble. Thanks
    for compliments and comments, broski. Always appreciated.

    I've done an illustration...well I never finished it. It took the living
    fucking soul out of me, and I don't really want to see it ever again.
    Dwarf Fortress related, with a human bard and dwarves and shit.
    Loved doing the faces, hated everything else.
    I also did some studies. None of them went as planned.
    The badger is for someone I know. For some raisins she
    likes badgers.

    Silwynar: Thanks, I try to keep some cool/warm relationships going,
    but I usually go over board with my warms. Thanks for the compliments,
    and I wish you the best : )

    I just did two things. It's kind of pathetic.
    I did a quick 10-15 minute recap of the previous study, but something
    that I figured out is how to quickly paint hair. It's quite amazing, really.
    The Octopus is...well, I don't paint octopi. Never painted them before.
    But it's again for the same girl as the badger.

    andartarius: Thanks a lot! Warms my heart, really.
    Studying things in general is the best way to learn, I think. Drawing and painting from life is the best, as it teaches you much more about reality than other exercises. Of course there are other things you can do, like perspective studies and such. Sorry that I'm not writing a huge reply, like I should, but this is right before bed. Maybe I'll whip up a more comprehensive post for you tomorrow. Thanks again for the kind words.

    Anyways...This is a shitty update, but I guess you people are used to that.
    Just did some sketches, experimenting on the side. On a more interesting note: I'm working with some dudes, doing some concept art. Can't post it, but that's why there's nothing "proper". Hope you enjoy the shit that's left though!

    godbot7000: Thanks for the compliment. That painting is pretty
    much just a mashup of pictures that I painted over. It's really not all
    that special, but if even one person likes it that much I guess it was worth it! Thanks a lot.

    All right, here's the deal:

    I've been slacking off and I've let my personal life get between me and
    what I should be doing a lot more of, namely painting. I've been dumb,
    I've been whining, I've been complaining about useless crud.
    I'm going to put an end to this shit right now, at least for the time being,
    and this week I've Issued myself a real challenge.

    I'm going to update this sketchbook at least once per day, no
    matter what kind of shit I cough up. Adding to this I will complete
    one detailed design a week. If I can do this for one year then I'll have
    about 52 heavy-duty designs under my belt. Maybe I'll ramp it up or something after a while to maximize this shit right here.

    Today is sunday the 3rd, June. In 7 days I'll cough something up that
    is actually worth looking at, and I'll have something to put in my portfolio.

    oh and as to not just post text I'll post a shitty morning sketch:

    This is the outcome of day 1.
    I had an exam, and I haven't slept at all for about 30 hours, but I spat something out nonetheless. One of them is of course a reworking of the last sketch I posted. It's better now, compositionally and everything, though I'd NEVER give this to a prospective client. Oh no. The second one is a sort of cool sketch I did. I like forests, and I suck balls at painting them. It's been fun.
    onwards to day 2!...after I've slept for an eternity.

    So, Day 2 has ended. I pretty much slept for most of it, watched a bunch of let's plays and sketched up some stuff for an oil painting. I've prepared that now.
    I also painted one picture that I ..actually felt a little bit satisfied with.

    The result of Day 3 so far. A self portrait.
    I've been busy today with a some stuff. Won some sort of...award? scholarship? I don't know, but it's for painting and stuff. The day is young, and I'll probably post some more if I have the time to make more...things.

    Edit: added another painting. Obviously I'm not going to be an environment artist any soon.
