I’ve decided to create myself a sketchbook here on Consept-art. I’m 17 years old, and live in norway. I’m currently attending my second year at a norvegian highschool specialising in art and design, but i feel that I’m not progressing fast enough. So I’ve decided to take matters in my own hand and start to do some studing on my own. I plan to present all my work here. All coments and critiques are greatly apreciated.
I’m currently working my way through the book ”Sucsessful drawing” by Andrew Loomis. I’m just saying myself finished with the elipses. I found them quite hard to get right, but on my last attempt I improved alot
Working with circles:
Trying to get the elipses right
Last try at drawing elipses, I feel that I’m ready to move on in the book
I plan to copy all Loomis drawings in the book to learn some anatomy and how he thinks when he shades his figures.
Some pictures created with photo reference.(Though these one are quite old(6-12months)):
Drawings from reallife:
Two oil-paintings I’m working on. They are still in the early phases of developement, and I plan to post my progress on them here as time goes by. Now I’m just waiting for the paint to dry, which incidentally took a lot more time than I expected.
Doing a painting of my brother. Unfortunately my initial sketch had severe issues which forced has forced me to redo alot of the picture. I also notice that the thick layer of paint I have put on his face trying to fix this takes ages to dry. At first I started a WIP thread in the critique board, but I’ve decided to just continue on updates here instead.

Trying to block in the shapes with paint. I’ve never started a painting this way before, and I figured It would be an interesting try
Ps. I’ll look over this post for spelling mistakes tomorrow, it’s very late now, and I fear that I might have done som blounders. If so they’ll be fixed tomorrow.
