    Njord's sketchbook; Getting the Cramps.

    Well, so I figured out I would like to start a sketchbook.

    First a little information about me, I currently live in Houston (I'm from Norway) and are attending high school here.

    My goals for this sketch book are developing my art and at least try to start to figure out my own style. I don't have a lot of time between school and friends , but i will at least draw each day and make updates here two times a week or more.

    Well, enough scnitt-scnatt, here are some of my old drawings, new ones will come later.

    Some studies of various things.

    So thats all for now, more to come when I have scanned it.

    Here are some more recent drawings, the two first from ref and the last one without.
    Do anyone know about a good color pencil tutorial? I have some pencils and I would like to just get a little introduction into the medium.

    Okey, I blew the update twice a week pretty fast. School and homework and that sort of things take a lot of time. I when i have the option of drawing for 20 minutes or scan a drawing and post it, I draw.
    But finally some more sketches.

    Again just some studies.

    School takes a lot of time, and my lazyness for scanning my drawings keeps on going. My sketchbook do not fit my scanner in one scan, so i have to do it twice. This of course makes the scanning time twice as long.

    Here is some recent gestures and figure drawings, and a little concept of a muslim wizard warrior.

    Looking good.. two quick crits: one, the arm looks a little short, it doesn't seem to be drawn back far enough to warrant that much foreshortening. Two, I think it'd add a lot to the piece if you were to emphasize the weapon and shield some more, both by size and detail. Here are two quick references off of google:

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks. I when i flip the image in photoshop I see what you are talkng about. Need to rise the shoulder part a little. If I have one tip to everyone it would be to look at their drawing in a mirror.

    I'll try to fix the arm and not screw up the drawing completely.

    As for the ref, thanks again, but I'm going for someting more historaical correct.

    I'm not very good at this critquing thing, but I guess that's what this place is all about.

    maybe try to use less busy broken lines and place them where you think they'll be more effective. You already know to keep studying anatomy so.....


    the page with the faces is my favorite, especially the one where you wrote
    " actually pretty good"

    duder, these are looking good! I can tell that yer putting more thought into your lines. Heck


    On the second one, it looks like the horizontal lines don't point towards the same vanishing point, though.

    You are completely right about the horizon lines, A made one vanish point than forgot about it and made a new one, So there are actually 2. ^^

    A ink study, just messing with diffrent styles and more 10-15 minute school sketches. Thanks to all who comment here, especially Cordy, you got a nice sketchbook!
    The inks are actually sefportraits.
