    Bjork's Sketchbook

    Hello, thank you for taking a look at my sketchbook :D
    I'm a little elf from the Faroe Islands with big dreams to one day become a concept artist (or something along those lines).
    I still go to high school, so I have to balance between doing homework and drawing, so if you have some tips on how I can get as much as possible out of my drawing stuff then please tell me!
    .. I should probably write something else, but for now this will be it! Once again, I humbly say thank you :)

    This is good stuff! The combination of brushwork and lines in that last digital image is especially nice. Subtle, and adds detail only when it's needed. Your heads are also very structurally solid; they don't look two-dimensional or have any "floaty" features. Keep posting; I'll check back!

    This is most enjoyable to look at. I"ll keep popping back in from time to time. Perhaps more environments and objects would be good for you. The boats on the other page weren't some of the strongest things I've seen and when compared to your hands (which are quite good and obviously well studied) some of your objects just don't measure up. Perhaps if you apply the same line of thinking you're using for the physical form it would help make things even more awesome.

    You have a lot of talent! Keep on doing studies and maybe experiment with more colours and media. Great sketchbook :>

    Thank you very much! ^^ yeah, working with colours tends to intimidate me at times, so I should definitely look into that! Anyway, thank you for the feedback

    They all look very good! The deer looks a bit high though other than that it's very nice! I especially like the environmental sketches

    Dude these are AWESOME!! Honestly I'm shocked at your improvement over such a short period of time especially your understanding of female anatomy (mind- fcuck)! um if you're looking for things to practise, Michael Hampton's anatomy book is BOSS, callled Firgure drawing: design and invention", really awesome stuff right there um also maybe try loosening up and doing some thirty second gesture drawings, it will force you to experiment and you learn a ton. can't wait to see more stuff

    Alrighty I'm back with some new stuff. I signed up for Noah Bradely's Art Camp, so most of the things I'll be posting will be related to that. Anyway, here is some of the stuff I've been working on this week.
    This week is all about portraits, mostly self portraits. The first two drawings are quick block-ins where I focused mostly on colour. Second one is a black and white self-portrait and the last two are colour studies from the masters.
    At the moment we are only allowed to copy the masters and to draw from life and imagination. No photo ref yet

    I'm still struggling with colours quite a lot, so if you guys have any recommendations for books or tutorials or anything then please tell me

    I'm having a hard time seeing any images but for the final two posts, but what's there is great. Lovely portrait studies with some pleasant variations in brushes and strokes.

    master colour studies and a plein air painting(though I was sitting in my living room looking out the window hehe). I'm pretty sucky with environments and landscapes, especially when it comes to doing them from imagination, so if you have any tips on things I should work on then please tell me!

    two colour studies and another painting from life.
    I'm really sucky with environment paintings, so some critique and tips would be lovely!
    I'll try and do one from imagination tonight

    Great studies again.

    I have no advice for doing environment reference studies other than the realization in my own work that I think I am under-estimating the darkness of the values in general resulting in a washed out look that makes it all very flat. Maybe by pushing those dark tones in your work can give you a better result too? Otherwise your portraits are looking great.

    I am trying to practice with GeoGuessr There are a lot of forested pics that are especially hard.

    Yeah that's usually what tends to be my problem! I have to keep telling myself to push those values hehe ^^ Thanks!!

    today's stuff
    I probably didn't do enough imagination stuff today, but I'll see to it that I do more tomorrow after I wrap up a few more studies

    As always, critique and feedback is welcome!

    A painting I'm working on. Would love some help with where I should be putting the shadows and highlights and also with colour.
    I need to draw more faces so I understand the planes better
    anyway, I'll upload more stuff later tonight!

    I think I've been a bit lazy today, I had a hard time focusing while doing my studies and didn't spend as much time as I could have on each of them. But perhaps that's somewhat of a good thing: just getting the basic stuff you want to learn from your study instead of going all in and making it look super alike without really learning that much from it
    I've done some imaginative stuff as well, not as strong as my studies, But, hey, I had fun
    I have some other sketches lying around, I'll see if I can upload them tomorrow

    (prepare for a lot of figure studies this week)
