    Visions of present and past

    Forewords:
    Words of gratitude for Mikko Jokisalo for editing the pictures that much that I had the courage to present them here. I would've posted here earlier, had I proper scanner and scans of my pictures in my possession. All pictures have been taken by digital camera, so quality suffered alot. But with help of Mikko, you can see more of them. I am much obliged to many other people for their support and endless whipping, forcing me to post my artwork in here.

    - Markus Elo.

    Here's what goes on in my mind:

    Barbarian, girl and sorceror

    Dead God Manifests
    Visions of present and past

    Demise

    Female Cleric

    Fleur - Elven maiden (Thanks goes to Katja Raatesalmi for letting me to use her face and picture and letting me draw a medieval version out of her)

    Mourning the loss of the lost love
    Visions of present and past

    Scenery - a truly feeble attempt
    Visions of present and past

    Welcome!

    Fantastic start to your sketchbook... makes me want to listen to my Ensiferum CD haha.

    Noticed some anatomy issues going on... eye widths and other little things. Watch out for that stuff. Had a question: how come your eyes are just circles? Really makes your extremely well detailed image look flat and lifeless, I think.

    Keep it up and I'm looking forward to some future posts!

    Thanks Ian !!
    Yeah, I know, all the eyes I draw are left lifeless orbs that stare at you with hollow emptyness. And that is because, well I try to make them alive, but utterly fail and that's why I simply leave them cold, lifeless...I try to put more effort into eyes later on. I have not drawn actual faces nor gestures for but a short time now. I always tend to cover every aspect of someone's head by putting a helm or hood on it , hehe.
    And yeah, I got proportion and anatomy problems, alot. But that is because I rarely use any reference or poses. I should study more, I know..but somehow I just tend to slip away from the study part and just start to flame out my ideas onto the paper, haha. But thanks for creative comments!!
    I am much indulged.

    Ps. Several new pictures coming up soon !! As soon as I get proper shots of them and whip Mikko to enhance the looks of them.

    You've got some very cool ideas! I'm with Ian, though.. You should do some anatomy-studies. Trains your eye, so you can get those ideas even better out on paper

    keep posting!

    Much obliged, dCepT !!
    Ahehe, yeah, true that. I am sure to do some anatomy study soon enough.
    Learning different kind of stuff all the time, trying to make my drawings to have more backgrounds, so they are not just some guy standing in a white void, hehe. I am trying out architectural stuff at the moment as well as some nature scenery, lush forests and landscapes. Going to need lots of practise, though.

    Feel free to give all the critique you got, by the way !!
    I need it, really =) .

    Sorry for tremendous amount of waiting for new updates from me. I've been horribly busy with everything and haven't quite managed to dedicate my time here on the forums!! Anyhow, after some serious whipping and getting that damn camera from my imbecile brother, I once again can provide you people with some new stuff, take a look and comment with sadistic amount of tips and critic .

    Dedicated to one of my dearest of friends, Jenni Viljamaa. I thank her for giving me this unique chance to draw her from a pose. (I made an evil version out of her as she so requested and thus I thought this to be called "The Avatar of Auril - The Godess of Winter and Ice")

    Yeah, still having those empty holes of an eyes -__-' . I tried to enhance them to make them look more lively but miserably failed, thus I left them as black or non-colored . I must do some eye-studies lest everyone have such eyes in the future. That's not good, not good at all.

    You need some more definition around your eyes. Right now, you only outline 'em, that makes them pretty flat. The eye is an orb, so it deforms the eyelid, you have to define both the part with the eyelashes, and the bottom part. You've done it a bit on the one of your friend Jenni.

    Visions of present and past

    quick sketch to illiustrate.. hope it helps

    Also, I'd like to see you do something other than anime-ish faces.

    I like the avatar of auril. It's got something more than your other faces.

    Keep updating!

    Hey, thanks for dropping by my sketchbook!

    Good updates and great advice from dCepT! I noticed your girls have generally the same face, don't let yourself slip into that comfort zone of only 1 facial structure, although I'm sure it's not easy to just whip up new faces all the time!

    Good work, keep it up. Try doing different faces and put dCepT's advice to work with some awesome eyes!

    Thank you ever-so-much for your most awesome comments and artistic views, brethren!!!! I will reply to them when I am not so beaten up by school, as I now am. When this week is over, I am freed from the shackles of torment , at long last.

    Some sketches I have made quite long time ago. I want to post these here for the reason that you see what my fast sketches look like, whenever I am to draw them. I rarely draw these, because my drawing style is more like going straight to the core, so to speak.

    Anyhow ->

    And for last, a very ambitious work I plan to remake on a A2 sized paper.
    The attempt will propably kill me, for the work in this one is going to take sadistic amount of time . Oh well, let's see what will come out of it. Here's a sketch of it anyway: "The Pandemonium"

    Visions of present and past

    * a side note: I just wanted to inform that I always draw on A3 sized paper. Sketches often end up on A4 but everything else is always A3. I am trying to move on A2 all the time. I have actually done a very intriguing drawing for my friend on A2 paper, you will get to see it soon enough . Until then, gaze upon your paper and unleash the powers of your illusionate, creative minds!!

    You have some really great looking design work here.
    Anatomy is a weakness, but design is your strength and it's, obviously, what inspires you right now. So draw what inspires you. Sure learn anatomy, but please don't get so hung up on it that you keep your ideas inside because you're worried about the anatomy not being right. If you get an idea draw it.
    Someday when you're better at anatomy you will re-use these old costume designs and really have something good.
