Hi! Been lookin around here for a while now and realized that i have to start practicing more so I've started to draw something everyday, before I just drew when I felt I had a very clear picture of what I wanted to draw and I pretty much gave up as soon as things did'nt turn out as I wanted.. Thanks to this forum and the great artists here I've opened my eyes and realized that I have to start takin my art more seriously to get were I want..
I will post my sketches here in hope of tips and critique that will help me evolve, not many forums where you can get that exept for here it seems..
So please tell me what you think.. Also give me tips on material, really lost at that, I'm currently just drawing on printer paper for example and I guess thats not the optimal paper for giving the pencils justice.. Thanks in advance!

Some more stuff.. Little less sketchy and more of finished drawings though..
Excellent start.. lots of awesome stuff.. ure rendering is great and the finished pieces have amazing 'finished' quality about them. Look forward to more posts and hopefully some new mediums.. defintly would encourage trying stuff other than pencils, even if its just adding marker colour or some water colour washes
PHATandy: Yeah I will deffinitly start using more mediums.. Been doing some stuff with color pencils and a little bit of water color earlier.. I do alot of things with ink aswell..
I like your skulls and your animals especially that kuckkuck(?)
how long did the horsepainting take?
Xaya: Thanks! Not really sure actually.. I never keep track of the time while I draw.. I guess it took a few hours..
wow, there are really great.. Your animals are fantastic and the one piece where the two people are looking out through that door is great.. Did u use ref for that??? keep em coming
Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd
vigostar: Thank you! Yes I used a photo from a photography book from magnum as reference..
amazing stuff... i like pencil portraits... me want more!
awesome rendering skills. I love the "botox injury" page especially, very creative and pronounced. keep it up I look forward to seeing what else come out of your mind and onto paper.
Don't forget to read the stickied FAQ's before posting
Nice work here, great rendering! I with Van, those face studies are fantastico. Some of your skulls and stuff have a tattoo-like feel to them (dont know if thats what you were going for, but theres good money in it I hear) Anyway, I would also like to see some color experimentation and maybe some looser stuff. Rendering is a great skill, but sometimes uber-rendered stuff loses its excitement!
Awesome work though, cant wait to see more! Me loves the horse!
Keepiru: I'm really into tattoos and aim to become a tattoo artist.. thanks you for your comment.. I'm gonna be doing some color stuff soon..
Marie: Thank you!
Been out traveling for a while.. The plan was to draw alot during the travel but I spent my time on other stuff.. Drew an anatomy thing yesterday though..
Ok been playing around with some watercolors today.. Not very good at it, heh, but it was kinda fun.. Guess its some looser stuff at least like you asked for.. I'd be very happy for some tips on watercolors or some tutorials.. Would be fun to learn..

diggin the animal studies and the wc nose details. Draw more like that! Photo studies are good but do some life drawing and gestures if you can. Even folks at the mall or a cafe make great gesture subjects :3
artkitty: Thanks for the comment.. Yeah I know I should do more life studies.. Right now its so cold outside here in sweden that beeing out drawing is'nt to nice, should go to some cafés and stuff like that though..
Heres some still life I did today at least.. Kinda pleased with it.. But I have to practice alot more at it.. Gonna try to do at least one still life or life study a day from now on, preferably more than that..
Some studies for a oriental tattoo style piece I'm planning on doing..
Some still life from today.. Should have gone for a smooth bottle insteed I think.. The text on the bottle made the reflections very strange and hard to understand.. Guess it was good training though.. I'm happy eith the bottleneck atleast..
uber fantastic dude!, your ability to cature detail so well is incredible. as for materials, ive always believed it's more about your scanner than anything else. long live cg
Study on aria giovannis body.. Shes a damn hot gal to say the least.. really fun to draw this.. New technique for me.. Hope yall like it..
Just playing around..

pencilator: Hehe! altid kul att stöta på svenskar här.. Kul att du gillade mina grejer.. Ja jag hade referensfoton när jag tecknade henne.. Hade blivit svårt att övertala en av de största kvinnliga porrstjärnorna i världen att svänga förbi götet på en kroki session, hehe!
Gomango: Thank you! Yeah shes a fuckin godess..
