Joona's breathtaking progress.. umm book
Good day for manybody and welcome in!
First I must say that isso09's sketchbook really inspired me to build one of my own.
His progress blew my mind, and that's why i have to start working out like Rocky!
I'm currently studying fine arts at a university, and sadly i think that i'm not learning enough,
because there's not been enough of teaching the fundamentals and i'm half way my second year now.
So if I were to achieve what I'm after, amazing skills, I have to train my ash off during my sparetime.
I wish to work at the game industry as a concept artist or 3d modeller. Some of my friends are interested
in game programming and I have very little knowledge of 3d modelling, but I'm willing to learn more every day.
I'm also very interested in animation
So anyways here are my latest studies, and i need all of you guys and gals to help me what to do better,
what to do next etc.
I will post posemaniacs as soon as i've done a decent amount of them.
I'm also thinking i should study color and lightning from pictures and real life objects.

Just a little update. The first two are studies, and i know i should study a lot more but since an animation course just started at out school it has taken lots of freetime also. Third picture is a concept art mainly based on the characters in the first post. The last three pictures i made at my school during a drawing course. I will post the final version of that sticker-like picture which is the last. It took me three weeks to complete and turned out allright.

Well it's good to see you've made a SB here, it can only help you if used properly. I'm not a sterling example of optimal sketching but discipline is a learnt thing. It's hard to see what you need to work on at the moment but keep doing the hand studies and draw everything around (I'm sure you know that already).
Out of interest: what are they teaching you on this fine art course? :s

Danyal: well the point is to come up with an idea for a drawing and produce it to a final stage in three weeks. It's kind of an artist course for producing a piece, with proper coaching i guess, and i have two critiques and a final critique from the class. I just posted that last drawing to show what i'm doing in some of my schools more independent courses the courses name is "artistic workshop basics" and out of photography or drawing i picked up drawing. the thing is i honestly think finnish schools lack the teaching of fundamentals. We've had some life drawing courses etc, but i kind of think i need more of that. I guess it's a liberal way to think art as something that's not bound to any rules such as proportions which i find really important and why i started this in the first place. I will definitely be putting on some work that're more about the fundamentals in future Thanks for the input though!
edit: so to sum this up -> the course is about an artist's independent working, planning and scheduling and i have to show i'm capable of producing something in a deadline of three weeks to get my course points. kinda fun, but duno how important.
Added the finals. I think it was a waste of time from my part since i could've chosen to draw figure studies on the same paper or say ten papers for those three weeks but hey, what's done is done and next time i'll kick ass!

Okay, it's time to leave all those previously posted slightly more defined pictures for a year or so, since the main objective is to get better rather than to just show off how i spent 5 hours and ended the picture looking odd because i don't have the basic fundamentals correct yet. I'll just paste everything from shitty posemaniacs to stuff i like a bit more but not too defined. Todays studies are here. Some posemaniacs and a skull study with 2b pencil. Maybe i'll do some perspective studies tomorrow. Oh yeah, the posemaniacs are 30 secs, I'm not too used to it yet, as you can tell lawl

just a few moments ago i made a quick thirty minute study with an orange and a banana. the lightning in my room had been dramatically changed due to the movement of clouds. started with sun been blocked by clouds, ended with a totally different lighning situation after the sky was clear so i had to stop it. but it's a quick and loose study and will do.

Concerning your enviro , don't be afraid to push the values far more, you can use pretty much the entire scale to go out of a flat look. The concept in itself is good, you've put texture in the right place in my opinion, maybe you can play with contrasted colors now (warm against cold) and bring up a focal point.
Concerning anaomy, here's a usefull link: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=1432
And drawing real life persons is always better than drawing from photos (and well i ended up thinking posemaniac is not a very good exercise to make as it doesn't let you take time to think about what and why you are puttining this line here or there and why there should be a shadow here or there, longer pose studies are better imo).
Later when you've acquired strong knwledge of anatomy form and the other stuff posemaniac can be a good warm up for you hand before going on a long drawing session.
Sorry for the long post
Keep the spirit, you can do great things!
The drawings you've made at school are quite awesome by the way

DizzySun: I'm greatful of those kind words but you are better and you know it same goes for you too! train train train, rocky mode.
Feil Magnus: Awesome and usefull post man! I'll check out the anatomy topic after i come from ice fishing. I totally agree with the posemaniacs comment, but also i think that there's rarely a chance to draw a model from let's say above him or her, like from a bird perspective and that is where posemaniacs comes really handy. I'll manage some time and join the nightdrawing course at our school. It's every thursdays for drawing i think and maybe tuesday is for painting, not sure but something like that. And it's free entry for all the students so once i manage my work schedule i think i can manage that!

Okay! a bigger upload this time. I'm trying to change my studies from a Fine Art
degree to a Media degree! I think i can learn all the art myself, but i need
guiding more with work-oriented stuff like how to get myself that dream job in
edit: I didn't chance the degree studies. In the end it doesnt really matter i guess. We have to learn everything by ourselves

Hello. Thanks for stopping by.
You seem to be much more comfortable with digital rather than pencil. Those imaginative enviros are great.
One thing I can say is, you need to try to push the value more.
Post some more work. : )

Ok, a lot has happened since i last posted! I've been doing an animation and learned so much from it, because you can't avoid any particular pose you feel uncomfortable with. That's been very nice. Also I was elected to the Media degree Entrance Exam out of approximately 600 people from which around 200 had this cool as their main objective. I don't know what you call them - maybe first line applicants? Anyways they choose twenty out of the 60 applicants who got to the exams. My percent grew from 4% to 33,3%. Almost in! So as you can tell i've been really really busy with this pressure haunting at me. I'll be back in posting in around may'ish i guess? Hopefully with a new school degree going on then
