    Ormīs sketchbook, updated August 28th

    Hi, I decided to post something here.

    I am interested in how others perceive what I do and I also think a public sketchbook could motivate me into more creations.
    I want to try more techniques and develop my skills.
    Help me please.

    Ormīs sketchbook, updated August 28th

    I had a good time when I made this one.
    I appreciate everyones view. Tell me what you think is lame etc.

    hi there!
    i like the texture and the color and i think it's a great starting point. it would be helpful if you could tell some more about the process and probably what's your goal. for example whether you started with the watercolor (i guess it is...), saw some forms in it and then drew the branches or whether you started with a pencil sketch, then did the color and drew over it (sorry if i don't recognize your steps right away, maybe to others it's obvious...) it just would be good to know whether you have a concept/ a plan or whether you just draw/paint and look where it gets you... i don't think it's lame at all, i just think it could use some refining. the drawing looks good, just go on with it. hmmm, don't know whether that was helpful at all, sorry, if not...

    looks good! Just wondering if you got anything that shows your knowledge of things/humans/objects/transport/landscape by reflecting them through your style, i can see you know and like leafs.

    Don't forget the public is made up of individuals who have different interests, to find out what they are, i suggest to browse through a couple of sketch books to get a general idea

    i really like the colors in this piece. it really does give me this calm feeling. I would love to see more work like this, do you do mostly abstract works, or do you tackle more realism as well? just curious.

    Maybe Iīll try to give the leaves slightly darker edge, but no, then I might lose the IMO nice nimbleness of them. got a tip of any other way of giving leaves more contrast to the surrounding?

    I never thought of myself as a "calming picture-person" before, thanks!

    Hi! the process:
    I was listening to a cd-recording with Max von Sydow reading "the old man and the sea" by Ernest Hemingway. He is the perfect reader for this book! I recommend it, but the version is in swedish:/

    I wanted to practise my simultaneous capacity so I started drawing this little Ivy. I made two drawings from same perspective. It was a lot of fun.
    Some day later, while on the phone, I accidently spilled some ink mixture(I think itīs part blue/purple watercolor, part old green washable pelikan ink if Iīm not mistaken) on the paper. A HAPPY ACCIDENT!
    Without thinking I started playing with a brush while talking, and after a while I got "into it".
    After everything was dry I started giving the plant some black contour.
    Iīm very happy with these colors, because it wouldnīt be my usual choice.

    I might eventually leave it and make something new instead, yeah I go with that I think. Maybe a little brushing on the leaves.

    Cold
    I might put up some more stuff when I feel I want advice or more point of view. The leaves were drawn from life, I tried to look closely. thanks!

    It seems like I have the power to calm. Sounds nice. I want to train my eye, and I mostly do studies from life nowadays. In graphite pen mostly. does this count for realism?

    Is this piece considered abstract? terms...(!)

    I want to implement more color in my stuff though, but itīs hard controlling the colors, I guess thatīs when I go "abstract" :/

    Thank you everyone for sharing your views!

    landscapes

    I have noticed I have trouble making believable landscapes. Depth, and making things look big(big like mountains for example) is hard stuff for me.
    Last night and this evening I had some practise.

    For you who asked for realism and humans:

    A self-portrait, took me quite a while. It looked more smooth before the scanning, but the values look like they do in the real pic.

    I like the manager!
    below, the cathedral of cadíz and some other architecture.

    please go ahead and tell me your opinions, be it of technique, composition, or anything!

    well, i like your landscapes and environments, depth problems, there are some here n there, but there nice to look at, good self portrait, you should go back and darken it in a bit lay in some darker tones. the animal sketches look good to. the cathedral looks good too, i especially like the first painted one, the other ones seem a bit hectic... and the perspective is a bit off 3rd, 4th, 5th, 7th, and 8th pics on the cathedral update... the 5th one lacks depth, and the other ones seem as if you change view points or lose track of your line of sight... some portions of the sketches dont line up with the line of sight, but theyre still real cool lookin. keep it up!

    this1 thanks for saying stuff! it makes sense what you write about the hectiveness(?) of the cathedral sketches. I vary so much in temper so especially when something takes long time my lack of patience can be seen in the drawing.

    I tried being careful with this one because I was using an unerasable pen. still I got lost with the lines.

    One reason why you might have difficulty doing landscapes is that you are keeping everything the same value, i get no sense of perspective by using value, everything looks like its floating in your environment studies. Another thing that might help is dividing your composition into thirds.

    Yes, I think my values mostly range from nonexisting to light. good tip you both!
    Tomorrow, maybe I will go out to draw some of my environment, if I do, I will keep this in mind.

    And I want to share with you this thing I did today. was fun

    I like your buildings - I have nothing to say about those that hasn't already been said. You've definitely got the mood of them, and the talent to do them - just get that technical crap down and your gold.
    I love the Madonna-and-Child monkeys! No really, it's great.

    oh, here's my sketchbook.

    Also, my website. It would get beat up in a fight.

    Hey man, really cool drawings, you should post more.
    My favourite is the selfportrait, my only crit would be that you should push more the values.
    Anyways, keep on working.

    Hi there! Fancy SB!
    I like the first architecture drawing with watercolors and the colors in last portrait.
    And about crits I think your lines are very unsure,kinda sloppy,try to drag the line in one move without redoing it too much. And even tough wild pencil strokes can be interesting sometimes try to shade in just few directions to pronounce the feeling of space and shape on the buildings.

    Keep it up!

    Poster Design

    Thanks Blaz
    I think if my lines look unsure, itīs because I draw too little. I will hopefully feel more inspired soon

    This work is a collaboration with a friend of mine.
    text is in swedish. it says "Open figure drawing"
    just want to get some thoughts on the design, because we might change it.
    cheers

    Haha, love the placement of your arm on this one

    Great castles you draw
