    Izu's sketchbook (update: oct 9th)

    Latest stuff on page 2!

    My little brother's laserpointer.

    My lil' gun, good for killing flies and other small animals. Meh it's a lighter.

    My mobile phone, yep it's kind of old.

    Salt shaker, but it contains pepper. (pepper shaker? xD )
    Didn't turn out so good.

    Best one in my opinion, kitchen knife.


    Oh well. More to come later I guess. ^________^

    You've got a good sense of form in these, Aad the reflections are working good too. The contrast could be a bit stronger, especially if it's enhanced in these pieces. Also if this is larger than the original drawings, try drawing a bit bigger. It helps, even if it might be tough.
    Keep it up, draw more, and find some blank paper!!

    These are really good, I like the shading on them. It is something that i'm trying to learn right now... controlling the values etc..

    Ok I decided to bump this ancient pile of crap.
    More of the same thing I guess.
    Some drawings of items in the home (or outside) and a failed space marine + some cave concept.

    Am I allowed to use the attachment system to upload this much? :s

    Oh and what pencils are good for doing details? Because now I only use a regular HB. And maybe some special paper?

    Thank you for stopping the lined paper, your work is worth more than that
    You're producing some cool stuff, that tentacle/octopus guy is a stand out piece, try pushing more of your drawings to that finished level
    Dont call your work crap, have faith and everything will be great

    HB pencils are fine for detailing, just keep em sharp, or draw bigger
    And dont use special paper!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Hehe thanks Ben

    Well I'm not using any special paper, I just wondered if there is
    any paper better suited for details or something like that.
    Sometimes it feel like it gets a bit grainy on regular paper. :/

    Yeah I tend to get tired of bigger projects easy.

    I don't know if any of you remember me over at the critique board, but I posted
    a bunch of stuff and a forest scene image I was working on for a portfolio to get in at
    http://www.gscept.com/ in Sweden.

    Well my stuff got accepted so I'm starting there this fall.

    Here's how the forest scene turned out:
    (It got finished long ago, but could work on it some more now when I look at it.
    This was not one of the main images I did for the portfolio, this was just one of the
    'free of choice' that I was allowed to pack along)

    Thank you, CgMonkey.

    Yeah that would kick ass to draw with you guys.

    Will post some more sketchies soon.
    I've come up with a new lil' project too, had a chat with a german and we discussed superheroes. He named a bunch of german ones and I could not come up with any swedish one (anyone know any?) so he came with a suggestion for a new one, Systembolaget man!
    Anitra Steen never saw it coming.
    (I already see similarities to Superman )

    Here's some ref I will probably use, haha:
    (googled)

    Ok haven't started the Systembolaget Man quite yet
    But! Here's some random stuff, I especially like how the drawing of (partly) Lance Dreher turned out. Even though the body got distorted somehow, torso being taller then on the photo and I think the biceps/triceps are a bit too large aswell (in comparison to the rest of him).
    Bah, you'll probably find more flaws.
    Too bad my scanner kind of sucks. Everything dark drawn with a HB pencil gets all grainy...

    I've bought some harder pencils now, reaching up to 4H. Really fun to draw with!

    Hope this is enough for people to actually type something in here now.

    Well now I've been studying CG at LTU since the middle of august and it's a blast!

    Here's pretty much all stuff I've created since I started. Croquis, paintings and other doodles.

    Hello! I like your stuff alot man you have a cool style indeed! Especially your pencil pictures are great, they've got this nice clean shading that works like a charm! The monster on the latest paper looks great for instance... The stewie painting is great too, the pics-on-Brians-computer-thing is so great!
    Keep posting, I will be sure too peak in here shortly.

    Father Christmas will mess you up.

    Here's some more.
    I would like some help with the little fella with the big ears on picture 2 and 3. How to develop him further, I know he kind of looks like Yoda with those ears.
    It's supposed to be a race that live in the forest together with the animals, with big warriors that go berzerk when eating flesh (they are cannibals aswell). They should also be pretty small.
    I just didn't want to make an entire new thread in the critique thread just for this.

    Any help would be nice.

    Tigermilk Thanks Yeah I like to draw things from life, I'm sure I'll do more. I'm just a bit lazy at occasions.
    softocean Thank you. I like to render, so much that I sometimes don't flesh out a concept good enough before I start render.. not good. :p
    Orifice Thanks, yeah hehe fatman was fun to do.

    Here's some start of a painting with those forest savages, haven't got that far yet, I think the pose looks ok, feels alright.
    Planning to add some forest environment aswell, with an intense perspective, high up.

    nice stuff. your pencils have a good sense of light and shadow. yea i think the pose on that new one looks good. relly like the rendering on the face so far. kinda looks like an evil yoda. ears look kinda strange they way they are now. you have that big dark shadow blocked out on the ear on the left(his right ear) but not on the ear on the right. looking forward to seeing it finished.

    never updated sketchbook

    hopefully weekly updated blog

    Ok once again I haven't been active here for some time. Too much school and games I guess, hehe.
    My motivation was down for some time aswell, but I did start painting again almost a week ago and this is what I've done so far.

    Painted off some girl on a photo. I didn't bother much with recreating her hair, made it my own way hehe.
    And a monkey with a gun, not that serious. Playing with colours.

    Thanks Arn J.

    Here's some more, my first cow entry (didn't get any votes, but it was still a great learning experience for me ).
    And then there's a fish drawing, the scanner ruins it a bit (as usual).

    Comments are as usual welcome.

    Real good stuff , all of it. Your shading is absolutely perfect IMO. I'm jealous as hell. As for the "yoda dude" did you consider giving him long pointy ears??

    @My3r5
    Hmm I don't really remember what I had in mind for that guy.
    I guess he could have long, pointy ears and it certainly look like I was going in that direction. I remember sketching several versions, but as he is now, he looks a bit too much like Yoda like you say.

    Haven't touched him for months though, maybe I should continue with it.
    (have so much unfinished stuff heh)
