    @ IDrawOnions: Thanks! And yes, there's something very strange about that banana..
    @ Luk999: I need to build up my confidence with these studies and sketches before going into designing anything more complex.
    @ Kriss_Kringle: Thanks!
    @ Overtoom: Glad you like them.

    Here's another very random sketch. The nipples are all over the place, but oh well.

    @ Cheboboh: Thanks for the kind words! Come back anytime.
    @ 0000: Self studying. At the moment, at least. I might apply for an art school, but I don't know if there are any decent ones in Finland.
    @ SpectreX: Thanks!
    @ Renart: Oh, I can't be that good. But thanks a lot for the compliments!
    @ V3T: I will!

    A photostudy of a pencil sharpener (used the rgb-sliders instead of hsb for the first time) :

    Really cool to see someone the same age charging into this stuff. You've got some great studies, but I'd love to see some more imaginative works! Keep it up!

    Wow your painting skills are mad awesome!!! Thanks alor for stopping by my sketchbook!!!! Here was my reply to your comment! "The trick i learned is to constantly use the techniques like matching two dots up with one line and just drawing grids and boxes helps alot. Also, using pen only is great for this type of penmenship, relying on crtl-z can hurt you in the long run. Sometimes drawing in photoshop can give you too much freedom as well as using pencil too. These things are indeed fine and i use them as well. But while doing training studies, try using only pen!!
    Thanks!" Keep pushing everything!!!! Your doing great!!!

    Awesome work on that pencil sharpener. Your study looks cooler than the actual pic. Also, I see what you did there... with the text xD

    @ CrashPoint: I'll try to do more original work in the future.
    @ Joe777k7: I've been doing some similar exercises recently and my lines are definitely improving. Thanks for the motivation!
    @ JOvictory: Thanks!
    @ Mikael: Yeah, I try to push the values and details to make it look "better" than the original. And with that text, I just had to do it. Dunno why.

    More photo studies. Trying to use different techniques (and still rolling with the rgb-sliders).

    Sweet character Ilari, I like the face and the huge hands. Also, I like the silhouette. The proportions of the upper left arm seem a bit off though. I get that he's hunched forward, but his left shoulder should probably be higher and the upper arm a tad bit longer. Also, I can't really discern where the light is coming from. I know it's a quick sketch but even when doing quick sketches it's probably best to keep a clear light source in mind and adjust the values accordingly.

    Btw (and not really relevant, but still), if you haven't already, check out this critique done by LaCan in the critique forum. His post really opened my eyes to how important it is to get the values down correctly. I know you're quite a bit ahead of me, but you could probably learn something from this as well. It's an epic post ^^

    http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...63#post3644063

    Edit: Not saying I think you lack in skill when it comes to getting the right values btw, you're way better than me at that, just wanted to share the post

    Thanks for the comment, Mikael! You're right about everything you said. The further arm should be retouched quite heavily and the other leg seems to be out of perspective as well. And the anatomy of the torso looks a bit weird. I thought that the light would be pretty much top-down, slightly in front of the guy, but couldn't figure out how to make the forms read so I kinda cheated here and there - and failed.

    The post you linked was definitely an eyeopener! I've kinda "known" all that already, but not really realized it. Gotta do some value studies.

    Value studies of photos. I think I should try to simplify even more and pull similar values together. With the traditional ones I left too much white on the paper instead of saving the white for the absolutely brightest areas.

    These two were done with charcoal. The first one I started with a line drawing but with the second one I went straight to blocking in the values and worked less carefully, as you can see. (Their quality suffered a bit when I scanned them, but you get the idea.)

    This was done on computer. I worked the same way as if I would have worked with charcoal.

    @ bjoern3000: Thanks a lot!
    @ JakeB: Thanks. I'm trying to work methodically until the methods become instinctive. Then I should be able to concentrate more on the artistic side of things instead of worrying about the technical stuff.
    @ Joe: Haha, thanks! Glad you like it. I'm starting to feel more comfortable when drawing from imagination (finally).

    Some bird studies (the line birds and the painted birds were done separately).

    Man I wish I had started studying this stuff at the age you did. I really think you've got a good handle on this, keep up those studies, and lets see some originals! I really would like to see some compositional stuff from you, because I think you're progressing really well on the basics.

    @ Chips: Thanks a lot!
    @ Flame_Unquenchable: Yeah, I should try to find a balance between studies and original stuff. Compositional drawing is definitely the next step, but it's a big step.
