My name is Kári and my goal is to become a concept artist atleast before the age of 23 :)
I'll turn 15 2nd of July and I'm from Iceland.
I made this sketchbook mainly because I want to improve at drawing and digital painting at the most :)
I'm going to try to upload as many things on my sketchbook and hopefully get some good critic and advice and who knows,
maybe I'll improve and learn new things on my way! :)
I'm still learning on the site so if anything is off track, please let me know :)
I did some anatomy studies with reference from some anatomy book I found at my school, can't remember the name though,
I also did one illustration so you can see where I am It would be awesome if you can give me any advice and some critic if you'd like!
More on the way tomorrow!
Crits and help of any kind are more than welcome!
Wow, so your still 14 years of age. If your keep on practice, you'll be there before 23 . I hope to see more stuff from you
The basic skeleton I use for my character drawings and one drawing where I used it
This is supposed to be John Watson from Sherlock BBC but it's not that alike, nice face i think though!
I like the arm but the foo is weird, especially the toes
Seems you are on the right track. Think the arm is pretty correct. Not 100% sure about the leg (but what do I know about anatomy?!). The foot need some more work as you stated yourself, but I am pretty sure you will get there long before you turn 23!
spirit Thanks man! really appreciate it!
Yes, I know the hair should be facing the other way
Ignore the text that is on the foot study, it's Icelandic From now on I'll do english ones posted one random sketch in there also
Some more great studies. One thing to watch is your proportions though, with your caped figure I think his head is too small compared to his body, and the leg in your latest post is out as well, the calf appears to be a little short. Don't worry about the notes being in Icelandic! As long as they're helping you it's fine
Once you say it, I really notice it! thanks man! I'm starting to get a little into anatomy though it's not my favorite choice of drawing, my friend gave me the tip to do it and said it helped very much
Random sketch of Orcrist The Goblin Cleaver, Thorin uses it in the Hobbit and it's my favorite looking sword
Drawn from life, put my hand in front of me and sketched it another one coming up soon Sorry about how the picture is positioned
Another drawing from life
Based on Andrew Loomises approach of drawing the head, although im still working on features of the head so there isn't any on this picture
The picture is moved a little, sorry about that!
Yay, finally an update . Anyways, this is a wip of a character I was making.
Here is the picture of it finished. Tell me what you think and if you'd like, leave a comment
p.s. I don't have a scanner, so the picture is blurry and motioned, sorry about that.
Random sketch done in school. Bit to small head though.
The sketch is found on the internet but I wanted to try to paint and think it turned out pretty good
So I learned a lesson few days ago.
If I don't draw for atleast 5 days I will lose interest in drawing a bit, which can only mean..
I will be trying to update this sketchbook every other day
I've failed to see that critic is ridiculously important for improvement so I'm looking forward to getting some advice
I did these four drawings here and they looked quite good..mostly trying to learn to draw value and light
The one with the guy in the robes is my favorite and I think I captured the light and shadows pretty good. If there are any flaws please let me know.

There is alot going on in school so I wont be uploading as much as I want to but I'll do my best.
Soo, here's a WIP of a character I did and the finished drawing . Critic would be nice because I know there's something wrong with my anatomy and proportions
Just trying to blend colors and see if it looks good with line removal I might update tonight again but I'm not sure.
Soo...I tried life drawing in digital. My opinion is that it's pretty awesome considering I'm an absolute beginner in digital painting .
Anywho, tell me what you think of it!
If you keep spilling out studies and ideas, 8 years will turn you into a great artist and a great concept artist when you hit 23. When it comes to concept art, it's all about ideas, anyone can learn the technical side to art, what people want to see is your ideas. And you are doing a good job getting those ideas out. Well done.
I'm a peacock, you gotta let me fly!
V3T Thanks alot, people that take their time checking my sketchbook is the best inspiration for me .
Light study and blend study, studies, studies!, STUDIES!
