My name is Elisabeth and this is my new official sketchbook!
I am actually not new here, I had an account for some years ago, but recently I have both the inspiration and time to draw every day (I am not a working dude, only a student on summer-holiday).
So here we go. (I am a little nervous, I have seen a lot of amazing artwork here)
First some old oilpaintings:
A selfportrait: (in oil)
My recent sketches:

Hey nice work! theres some anatomy mistakes on some pics
well not so much as errors its more like some times you guess some
areas that you dont fully understand, and that makes things
look a bit weird, like on this one
it seems you got a bit confused, as to how the structure of the
back muscles goes, so the volumen looks rigth cause you know
your lights and darks, but it still lacks the inner structure to make it
go to the next level, oh! and post some more non referenced drawings,
to evaluate your visual memory.
I really like your work, keep posting and ill keep waching!!
Download this zips while you can, REALLY they might be gone
by tomorrow and you will be sorry not to have this information
This is the man who did all the drawing on those zips,
he knows pretty much all you need to know about construccion,
anatomy and thinking in three dimencions, study him a LOT!!
Look at this tutorials especialy the ones made by Ron Lemen
those are cool. sweet paintings. keep it up

Nice work Elisa I really enjoy your oils, good work!
Good stuff...with all that free time I expect you to have lots of great updates M´kay
My sketchbook flawed to the max page 5
Ps:Hope you understand my English.
Remember my advices taste best with a grain of salt.
maxetormer: thank´s a lot for your comments and crits! I think you really pointed out what I really need to practice more on; anatomy. The links and tutorials will be very useful, thank´s! And you are right about doing more non-reference stuff, I have become too much comfortable with having a reference when I draw.
ewing: thank´s a lot
Anthriel: tack tack
Mindflaw: man tackar! hehe, don´t put the pressure on me, man!
Todays update: - With non-ref stuff! yea
Some quick oil-sketches, for practicing (tried to paint with only 4 colors, a red, a yellow and black and white)
Here we go! the non-reffed heads!

Very nice work. The oil portrait is coming along real well. Good job on the foreshortening on that arm in your last post, very nicely done.

hey, thank┤s a lot for your comments!
Smitherines: thank┤s for your tip, I will try to use more softer edges. Thank┤s for checking in!
Todays drawing- a wip in charcoal, but it is rather messy. I am not finished with the tree to the left, but I will give it a try later.
Crits are welcome!
You have a fine sketchbook going here like a lot of what I see <> keep putting miles on your pencil you are on the right road <> you have a great feeling for form>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Thanks for popping in on me and feeding the dancing bear......
wow Lisan.. This last one is a real beauty. Be careful with all the charcoal tho, keep the lady nice and clean
hey good work- i think the anatomy is a little off sometimes, but just keep working on it. and keep those pencils sharp!
mentler: thank┤s for stopping by! and thank┤s for your comments! You are an amazing artist and I will keep feeding your sketchbook
tiger: hejsan tiger! tack tack! It was a rather messy work, but I think I kept the lady clean
sith: thank┤s a lot! yes, I agree with the anatomy, but I am working on it! thank┤s for dropping by!
Update with the finished work:
Wow. You have a very deep imaginative mind. just dont fall too deep into it.
I especially like the sketch with the woman where you can se her bones. Looks like she has some rare disseace. really scary...
Keep drawing. i want to se what more you can do
Ha de bra!
Muchothanx for dropping by my thread. Like the BoneDoctor said, great feel for form. Like the way you are playing with lines and shapes to reveal more areas of the drawing. Only advice I can give you is to keep on drawing!
heda: thank┤s a lot!
demented: thank┤s for checking in, and your comments!
here is an update for yesterdays and todays work -not much though, only some small practicing stuff
quick figure studies with ink and black marker:
And some sort of a WIP-selfportrait in oil. I am satisfied with the colors, but the mouth is fucked up, and I┤m going to repaint it later.
Saw "oil" in your title and decided to check it out - glad I did: that oil rocks! Very believable, mouth does feel a bit off but don't think it's that big a deal. Colours are awesome, think you've nailed that one.
Markers and inks are also really impressive, like that you are attacking the markers, your are using them in a very energetic and lively manner.
Really impressive stuff, have some stars.
Nice work! my favorite is the lady hear the top with the skeleton showing on her arm. very nice oil work.
I like the most recent WIP self portrait too.
demented: thank┤s a lot! I think marker and ink is my new favourite tools, its quick and fun, and perfect when you study poses.
Chiko: thank you! and thank┤s for checkin in
More fun with markers and ink, this time some swordfighting! :
Some life studies:
Head from ref: (just for value practicing)
WOW youv got some pretty eyes girl!
now thats one hell of a good selfportrait!
about the ink stuff, its looking good, but it still
has that rought *peakry* look, maybe try to do some
were you wouldnt lift your hand from the paper?
and try not going over the same place more than twice,
its a hard excersice, but you might find it usefull,
I mean doing pen work is fcking hard anyways but
it always fun to find ways to challenge your self,
another thing you could do is to slowdown, in the
swordfigthing drawing I presume you used photo ref
(unless your uni happen to have a sword team in wich
case ill just shut up ) so if you have time try
to really copy with as much fidelty to the model
as you can, doing that in inks will increaste you line
control a lot, Im just in the process of doing that bw
Thats about it, just keep working your doing just fine!
Oh I forgot to ask, it the SP from mirror, photo
or a little of both?

maxetormer: haha, thank┤s! The sp is actually from a photo, I didn┤t have the patient to sit and stare in the mirrors for so long, hehe But I am thinking of using a mirror next time, I think it will be a good practice.
You have some really good advice about the ink stuff. I have to slow down a bit to get the lines right. I think I am generally a bit uncertain about drawing lines. (And yes, I used photoref - but having a sword team around would be the greatest! Thank┤s a lot for dropping by!
Hi again all! I have been a way for some days and I haven┤t been able to draw as much as I wanted. But here are some few stuff:
Some non-ref. and ref. stuff:
And one painting in oil i finished today, (it took about 4 hours), done with raw umber, black and white
