    2nd Generation Sketchbook

    Hi all, I decided to start a fresh new sketchbook since I hadn´t made any real update to my last one in a long time.
    I also feel that my improvements are starting to show, and I want a clean fresh start. So here we go!

    Wow the environments are great, full of atmosphere and character.

    The figure drawing could do with some work, the proportions aren't quite right, the lower halves of the bodies look smaller than the upper body and people tend to be around 7 1/2 heads in height, ideal proportions are 8 heads but you rarely get that in real life. I'd suggest doing some 30 second to 1 minute gesture drawings to loosen up a bit and to capture the line of action of the figure- it's important at first to think in terms of the whole figure and it's movement. I'm not expert, but i hope that helped.

    Keep posting

    BTW: heres a good tool for practicing figure drawing,

    Tack för tipset Baconstrap! Jag ska testa att tona ner konturlinjerna och se hur det blir!

    Hunin, I tried some 60sec-2 minute drawing, and it was really more fun and rewarding then I thought. Dont know why, but I´ve been backing off from doing time-limited studies until now. Thanks for the webiste tip!

    Here is this weekends sketching and painting. It´s a fictional fantasy asian city made from a photo reference, some anatomy studies, some very quick 60 second studies. Also a self-portrait, a study of my gf again and a made-up female face.

    The last post showed a lot of improvement, i'm glad you had a go at the 60 second studies, it helps you to loosen up, right? Also, the colour study of your girlfriend is much stronger and more in proportion than your other ones.

    keep it up

    Hunin Thanks! Yeah, those short practices gets you going for sure, forcing you to spot out shapes really really fast.

    Vulgar` Thanks Vulgar! That really means alot coming from you! I´ll have to get going on some more enviro studies though, havn´t done one of those in a while now.

    Here are some updates for this weekend!
    A couple of photo anatomy studies, a portrait of my best friend Leo, and some random made-up faces.

    Really good work and improvement here. Also love the palette you choose for each piece.

    Looking at your enviros, I really miss some hard edges. Maybe you could try to incorporate some by using some hard brushes to give balance and eye movement throughout the piece.

    Keep it up!

    albino-Z Thanks for the tip! I recently started practicing more balance and composition in my work, I will use hard brushes as you mentioned!

    Did a "quick" scene inspired by this weeks EOW, Centaurs meating:

    Very nice work. I really like your painting style, feels like a cool mix of painting and illustration. Subscribed.
