Hello fellow artist! My name is Tim and i am currently an art student in Amsterdam. Through school, my main focus lately is oil painting, but i'm also trying to up my game digitally. My goal is - like many others - eventually be a concept artist in the world of gamedesign. Take a look!

These are some of my studies from the past time where i am working out hatching and studying anatomy, mostly using 2B graphical pencil and sometimes add 7B to increase darks and add more depth to take it a little bit further in detail. For these studies i use 179 g/m2 - 80 lbs Hahnemühle Quattro paper for increased grip and nice finish. Enjoy!
WOW! you seem really secure with the pencil ( you set the lines where they should be and don't draw over and over it! )!! love your shading and have you tried to draw with a pen ball ped or an edding?? would love to see some of that!
dig your rendering especially on the rocks in post #3 they look fresh and still have alot of energy in the sketch
have a good one keep it up and keep having fun learning and growing
till next time
Below here is a portrait study (from photo ref). Since i'm just starting in color and photoshop (this is my second attempt) i'm still searching for the right brushes and brushwork that suit me but i'm pleased with the result so far. More in the coming days!
oh lol I just notice this, uhm... no I am not going to school.. I am trying to tutor myself, since the last few months much more than before but maybe if the year goes well I start animation next year. I'd like to see more of these digital paintings..good stuff!

Time for some more digital stuff, first a couple of digipainting studies of some architecture, i wanted to make them quickies but somehow i always turn out putting a few good hours in them, especially the frontal view of the old house with all the details. Nonetheless they turned out ok and i got to try a new brush and ended up with a more 'painted' look that i will explore further. The last one is Marilyn Monroe (obviously) done for fun.
Could you post more of those insane pencil studies? Maybe 1 with the original picture next to it? I'm trying to learn hatching and while searching for examples on the forum I found your sketchbook and fell in love with your skill
@Burnme, sure man, i think i know where to find some of the originals, but maybe i'll do some new ones (the other ones are a year old) to give you insight into hatching . Check back in the course of next week! Greetings.
@ Erikly: Thnx, glad u like it! I definitely agree on the proportions, i also heard that alot at school so i'm working hard to improve on that
@ nouge: Thnx
@ Tef: I will post alot in the coming hours.
@ NakedZergling: lol thnx!
@ birdscanfly: Hey thnx, definitely need some work on those proportions!
@Burnme: It turned out to be a bit difficult to find originals but i managed to find three of them! Here they are.
They are over a year old by the way, i will make and post some new ones in the forthcoming time.
Everyone else hid under your bed, so I'm in your closet.

Really nice stuff Tim!
I think it'd be nice if you used your hatching to describe the form of the object, as well as the shadow though. By that I mean make it curve with the form(where applicable) instead of a whole lot of straight lines. I think it'd help with certain areas looking flat. I'm just nitpicking though, you're doing good ㅅㅡㅅ.
