Beer 'n Shite Sketchbook
I just joined CA and it seemed obvious to start a sketchbook so i can keep track of my progress (if there will be any).
The quality of the work here is waaay higher then mine...but that's why im here. To learn. 8)
I'll start off with a dump of some more recent sketches, studies and quick digipaintings.

i realy like that first one. your digital looks better than your pencils.
but keep practising. just like all the rest and you will improve . and we will notice

The first one is a rembrandt studie so i can't really take credit for it!

and a another one...
This is a wip. Still have loads of things to do but i wanted to post it anyway.
I wanted practise on canvas, and a friends birthday is coming closer, so i thought lets paint him in a sort of old portrait style as a present.
I found this painting, from Frans Hals i believe, and replaced it with my friends head.
Using the painting as a ref for the armor and cloth.
Still have one week to finnish it so i better get back to it

The last one's already way better than your first image on your SB. But one thing was more correct on't. There was one side of the face being lit by light and the other being in shadow. You don't have to stick to that, but if you aplied that at least to BG on last one it would look better.

Strong work, that painting of your friend is looking good!
The Rembrandt looks very good, did you draw it out with linework first or paint directly with mass and shape? The reason I ask is because there's hints of linework in the digi stuff and maybe you could try an excercise painting without lines.

Thanks for dropping by meatsworthy!
The rembrandt i started with mass and shape...but i got a tendency to get into details way to quick. i really have to hold myself back i guess!
As for some new crazy doodles...
I had a deadline from work yesterday and had to work all night.
But like any sane man i started sketching
I finnished the work though, somewhere in the morning hehe

Nice head. Maybe refine the shape of the skull a bit. Put some color variation in there and remove the orange bit behind his nose. I like the reflection on the back of his head.

Say hooray for my first finnished piece!

ha ha. That's great!
I'm digging you bold colors, strong compositions, cross hatching skills and great imagination.
Can I recommend perhaps blending with a larger brush, the strokie-ness of your work is the only thing that really distracts me.
Very nice. Keep painting and I'll keep enjoying it. thanks :.
