    The Journey of a boy called Papu

    (Updated with my latest piece! I didn't like the previous one as my skecthbook thumbnail.)

    Heyooo! I've been lurking here for awhile now and I got so inspired my other peoples' sketchbooks that I just had to start my own. It's so awesome to see how people have gotten better and doing a sketchbook on this site just feels like a good way to record the journey of an aspiring artist. So yeaaa a sköööttchbööök AWSUM

    I feel like I need to say something about myself so here goes. I'm 18 years old now(I turn 19 in 10 days!! DDPP), currently in high school(fakken hate it tbh) and I live in Finland. I've always been drawing, but it wasn't serious before I turned 18. I'm not sure how I realized this is what I want to do, but I guess it was just seeing other peoples' awesome art. So yeah, I've been doing this for about a year now and I'm more inspired and excited than ever; such a good feeling it is ). I can't wait to start posting here regurarly and I intend to update atleast 4 times a week, probably a lot of studies and whatnot, some illustrations once in a while too probs.

    I wanted to include some anatomy skeches(sorry for the terrible quality, my scanner is broken so I had to use my shitty camera) and this character I drew the other day, to show you the level I'm at right now.

    (Update 22.5.13

    Just wanted to post some stuff I've done in the last year or so. The first one is something I did for a friend yesterday. It could be a lot better(the face is pretty bad), but I only had like a one day to do it, so I guess it's okay. The second one is pretty old and one the first digital paintings I was happy with. It's maybe a bit too dark, but oh well. The third one was done like a couple of months ago, it was a really challenging piece and in the end I think I screwed it up(The background for example is horrible). Positive thing is that I learned a LOT while I was doing it, so that's always good.

    I'm going to start posting more typical sketchbook stuff soon. I just wanted show the stuff I've done in my first year, since I started taking things seriously. It's mostly digital stuff and there's loads more of it that I haven't posted yet, and probably never will. Anyway, I realized a couple of weeks ago that while it's good that I have learned the basics of digital painting and I don't suck at it anymore, I really have to go back to the very basic and essential things like perspective and anatomy, because I just don't handle that stuff well enough yet. I want to learn that stuff now, so I won't have to worry about it later on. So yeah expect a lot more of that kind of stuff

    There should be a post of studies I did in here, but it hasn't showed up. I posted it a couple of days ago and it said a moderator has to approve it before it shows up. My last post(which I posted a couple of minutes ago) showed up immediately, without having to wait for approval. Hmmm I don't get it

    Last one for today! This was loads of fun to do. I liked the lighting a lot, in the stock image so I decided to paint it. My goal was to make it as photorealistic as possible, but not spend too much time on it. Mission accomplished atleast IMO.
    @nouge Thanks I'll probably update atleast 4 times a week so more will be coming lots more.

    Some Loomis studies. I really liked doing these and I'm probably going to do more of those pivots today. Don't mind that perspective study it's pretty much very badly done, but atleast I learned something from it. That second thing is something I did for school and I liked it, so I figured why not post it here

    Here's some loomis sketches and 30-60 studies I did last weekend. There's also a random character I painted today, which I was happy with.(It's pretty much a WIP, but I'm not sure I'm gonna finish it so I just figured I'd post it.) The last one was perspective practise and I also wanted to practise painting indoors environment.

    My friend you are on fire and working like a beast its great. You have a very naturalistic style to you painting its def going to be awesome in years to come. that girl sitting on the couch looks pretty polished like the attention you payed to the fabric and the folds and the way the fabric is stretching across the skin, applying those techniques to your own work in time will help it stand out. Liking your portrait studies too and you have some good ideas of your own like your own. Keep working.

    Been busy with school stuff(essays and such), so that's why I haven't updated. I wanted to post something though, so here goes. The first one is from a photo but the others are obviously from imagination.

    Pretty boring stuff, but I just started a new illustration today that's turning out quite well. I'll try to finish it as soon as possible, so I can post it here.
