    ...just another Sketchbook

    Welcome to my new sketchbook. I used to have one on this site years ago, but I lost track and eventually abandoned it. But I didn't stop reading the forum since this community was always a great source of inspiration for me.

    Just a few bits about myself before I'll start: I'm a guy from Austria and I'm mainly self-taught in art (though I attend life drawing classes). I'm a big fan of classical Illustration and Paintings with a comical or dreamy impact. Especially Heinrich Kley, T.S. Sullivant, Harry Rountree, Arthur Rackham, Carl Spitzweg or Gustav Tenggren come to mind, but I will stop the namedropping here Another great inspiration of mine is animation - just designwise, I've never learned to animate.

    In the next posts I'll show you a few of my previous sketches and paintings. Don't hesitate to leave a comment/critique or just say Hi.

    Characters

    Those are a few of the characters I've drawn during the last 12 months. I still struggle to find the 'right' style... I love lines and flat colors as much as I love to work with values (I need more practice in both categories, especially shading and color). The last figure is sketched in a local museum for military history and finished digitally at home. The rest is drawn from imagination (with photo references for costumes etc. of course -> Osprey books are a nice source).

    Environments and Scenes

    Done during the last 2 years... The mill on the green hill is a recent painting and not finished yet. But I decited to show it anyway since I don't know when I got the time to continue on it. You probably noticed that I like medieval fantasy settings quite a bit. I often got Gustav Teggrens work in mind when I do landscapes or buildings. I really admire his style, especially what he did for Pinoccio. Another great source of inspiration is the artwork from 1990s Adventure or RPG games (Lands of Lore, all Lucas Arts and Sierra stuff etc.)

    Studies, Sketches etc.

    A few simple sketches... the master-study at the bottom is after Rubens 'Two Satyrs'. The first two paintings are newer, the rest is about 1 year old.

    Figure Sketches

    Gesture studies, quick portrait sketches etc... Some are recent, but the portrait is about 3 years old.

    I do lots of gestures every week, mostly from photos or master paintings. Sometimes I do my gestures from imagination, but I still find it quite difficult. I will post more of them and some anatomical studies as soon as I start to show my daily stuff here.

    High quality work here! I especially like the female figures in #5. Did you have a model, or are they from imagination?

    fatman274: Thanks man... same to you, great Sketchbook!

    Sixten: Thank you! I don't remember it exactly since I draw lots of gestures and those in post #5 are a bit older. I usually use photo-references or paintings from the masters. I sometimes draw gestures from imagination, but I still suck. I will post a few soon, you'll see what I mean
