I'm Olav Telneset from Norway, Trondheim, and I'm 18 years old. Been lurking here for some years, even had a sketchbook a while ago, but I got tendinitis and got some time to think. So now I want to make a new sketchbook with a different name. Been drawing for 2 - 3 years now, although almost 1 of those years I didn't draw due to freaking tendinitis which is a total pain. Okay, enough ranting about that. Now i'm back in the game and are psyched about drawing, not completely sure what to do with my life, but I guess it have to be something about drawing or making music.
So yeah, starting this up because I want to push myself further, and maybe this sketchbook will be a motivation. Also the community here seems pretty awesome, so I hope to get some feedback Be as rough as you want! I can handle it ! Anyways, going to start up with some drawing over the past half year. I'll promise to upload fresh stuff in the future. Just though it could be cool to have some content in the first post :3
Sorry for the crazy amount of maybe uninteresting stuff.. But I had to have something. Also please tell me if the sizes of the images are too large. There are lots of Michael Hampton studies there btw his book Figure Drawing design and invention is really neat.
Moved all images to new post, makes things easier

Hey man thanks for stopping by my SB.
Really enjoy your studies, I like them flow of contours in your studies, and your proportions seem fine to me! Keep pushing dude.
Good stuff man. Remember to raise the contrast on your scans
Hello again :I
@BenjaminJL92 Thanks man!
@Fiskepudding: Yeah, I tried bringing up the contrast on the new stuff Hope you think it works.
@Lane. Thanks for the tip! I will definitively try to do more life studies. I did one in the update now
Still studying Hampton, trying to understand the hand, but it's difficult. Anyways, here's some new sketches. I tried to keep them small this time, hope it's easier to digest.
Welcome to the back of my sketchbook, this is where the derp is at, mostly reffless stuff.
Some sketches from life, it's my room.
Reffless digis. ;_;
Tried to experiment with just two values.
At last, some enviro stuff.

hey, thanks for stopping by my sketchbook! keep up the anatomy studies, i also like that you are practicing a wide range of stuff. facial anatomy needs some work but just keep drawing lots and lots and lots and you will continue to improve. maybe slow down every once in a while and really look at what you are drawing, fast studies and gestures are good but it's good to take some time for some of them too. keep it up!

sketchbook. comments/advice appreciated (:
@neonndreams: Thanks for the tip! Took most of it to my heart, have been thinking bout your words. Yeah, been reworking some stuff, trying to draw more reffles and work more on stuff. Again, thanks for comment
AAaA, been struggeling with my hand again D: and also lots of school... no good month for drawing, but, i got something done.
Feel ashamed of not updating this thing :< hope to update more often

Post more stuff god DAMN it! I know you must have gotten some stuff down over the last month.
Sweet stuff man. That life study of your room looks great! It kinda looks like you forgot about the perspective in it though
Cheers for stopping by my SB again man, really appreciate the kind words.
From what I can see your anatomy studies are already improving and you just need to keep on practising (just like me!)
For your digital's and approach it almost like your digital portrait in post #18
you blocked in the darkest parts of the face, showing the mass of the eye socket, and worked with big shapes, if you look at a lot of pro artists they often do that, work with bigger shapes then refining into more detail, keep pushing man!
@Fiskepudding: dudebro yo thanks man! Yes perspective is definitively an issue in that drawing x]
@BenjaminJL92: np, man. And thanks for stopping by mine! And yeah, I think drawing with just considering two values is a good exercise too :3
Hello beloved CA !
Haven't done much lately, i'm a slacker.
Loads of great stuff, man. Keep it up!!
What i like about your sketches is that you seem to have some freedom to do many subjects. And i really agree with the reference stuff, not just because i use a lot but it can really help you with the finishing level of a piece.
I was just wondering if you take SS or download the movies screenshots from some website...
Anyways, keep it up.
