    Elderscroller´s Sketchbook Journal

    Finally, I decided to create a sketchbook journal to track my progress online. I´ve been doodling and sketching since I was in Highschool, but never took it serious enough. After a long long break from drawing, I decided two years ago to better myself and take the long road to becoming an artist. Here is a comparison shot to show the difference of levels and my current status:

    The highschool level drawings were all done using reference, the 2012 ones are sketchbook entries from my mind.

    Still a long way to go, especially regarding anatomy and fluid poses. My goal is to be able to draw anything from my mind, especially the human figure.

    Good progress and now it's time to start studying! You have a good basic feel for figures now but yeah, as you already know... anatomy anatomy anatomy, gestures, life drawing, perspective and MORE!

    ALL good here, lotsa skills for form, lighting and rendering goin on. Congrats! If you wanna study anatomy, I find Glenn Vilippu, Michael Hampton and Mike Matessi all great to help draw figures from imagination. Hope this of some use. Good luck and keep fighting the good fight.

    Some of those faces are really great! I really like the angry chick, i think you will be very good if you push that level to other subjects. That flying car looks very Enki Bilal btw, nice!

    This is real nice! If you wanna study more anatomy, I think Bridgman is great, helps you give real emphasis on weight and volume (but what do I know )

    Also, your color studies are amazeballs, can't believe you do that in just 15 minutes!
