    update

    Finally, I'm back!

    It's been a while .... I decided to redecorate my house, well the one I rent from my parents anyway, and took out a wall, the ceiling, the old electrical circuits and put a wood burning fireplace in the room. That took a little more of my time than I anticipated.

    So drawing, and painting, has been on the backburner for a while.
    But it itches, it tickles...I have to get back to drawing and painting soon!

    I attached a sketch of some birds (reffed from pictures on the internetz), about 5 to 10 min. each. Just to have something to justify an update.
    But you guys and gals deserve more. Stay tuned, for I'm about to unleash myself unto the world.

    Satupeikko: thanks so much for your kind words.
    Yeah, I usually also browse several, sometimes dozens of sketchbooks and finished stuff without leaving a comment at all. Or sometimes one or two. That's how it goes.

    I'll improve myself, both as a person and as an artist. Because deep down I know I've always wanted to be one. I just got derailed, and demotivated because of other stuff. Is it useful to the world? Isn't it better if I'd help improve science, or human rights? Or nature? But I'm beginning to realize that we are all good at something. And cultivating that, we can do more for the world and the people around us, than could be measured or calculated easily. There's just too many variables to take into account. So I'll try and bring joy to the world, being me and drawing and painting my inner world into this one. I hope it inspires someone, somewhere.

    I just want to say to all of you that are on this board: keep up the great work! Improve yourself, for you yourself are the best tool you'll ever get. If you enjoy drawing, painting, art in general, keep enjoying it! There is too much money-making, planet-raping shit going on anyway. All of you bring joy and happiness, and beauty into this world. And everyone of us needs more of that. You are the frontrunners for a better world, all of you. I can't be bothered to copy/paste this into every sketchbook I lurk in, but this is for all of you on this board.

    update

    Not much I'm afraid, couple of sketches, reffed from pics over at portrait-photos.org - great study material I think. Have a look.

    Still in the endgame of rebuilding the living room (its going to be great, but man, so much dust that painting is out of the question). Anway, till next time!

    The girl on the top right of the first image sort of looks like Billie Piper. These are looking good

    update!

    @trisscar thanks! I don´t know Billy Piper, but hey.
    @Satupeikko thanks, and I will!

    Rebuilding the house (or more accurately, the living room) proves to be quite time consuming. Ah well, nearly done.
    And FINALLY I´ve found some time to do some sketching. I´m hopelessly behind on schedule so I will go full speed ahead starting NOW.

    Some sketches, practicing people and graphite, lazy ones I´m afraid.
    Some fat dragon (for COW challenge maybe, see challenges topic on top of the main forum!) and a dinosaur in zombieland. Fiddling with inks.

    Happy drawing everyone.

    ... gave up on the iron man, because composition wise his right foot didn't fit on the page anymore..
    started a new one though, with a little more thought before the start of the drawing.
    Hopefully analytical brain power will solve these issues

    update

    Ok, so rebuilding the living room is finally finished!!
    Very happy with the result, an inspiring, less chaotic room, for now

    I have to get this drawing/painting thing in overdrive... a very close friend of mine has written a book that will get published and he asked me to make a cover for it. I will, and hopefully it helps to sell the book.

    Another friend asked me if I could build a portfolio for a game studio, apparently he has got them all psyched up about my work. Holy crap, that would be awesome, but I'm not nearly good enough I'm afraid. Ah well, gotta build a portfolio and hope for the best.

    On top of that, I want to finish seven or eight paintings I've got hanging around since before this whole rebuilding the house thing started and I seriousl.y need to build a website. Busybusy busy! But in a good way.

    Here's some stuff that has been lying around, or current sketches.
    All WIPs. Some sketches (still fighting with iron man, damnit!), some paintings in progress. iron man and woman reffed, the others not.
    Until next time!

    update

    Small update, been fiddling around with a few older sketches and some ecoline I got from a friend...I like the experiment so far, let's see where it takes me.
    Oh and an update on darth maul from 2 posts back. Plan to take it to the color stage.

    Meh, the pictures taken with my phone tend to get blurrier when there's no more daylight. Sorry for that.

    NB: update: put a sharper picture of the tree up, and update on zombie/dinosaur thing, now adding acrylics to the mix! This is fun!
    (although composition wise etc, I have already given up on the thing, I'll take it to the next level just for fun and practice).
    And sketch of 300 dude. Some others are on their way.

    update

    working on a darth maul painting, in acrylics and oils, for fun and practice.

    I got some of the proportions wrong, but it looks reasonable.
    The biggest faul is with the length/width of the entire face. . I gave him a slimmer face. I dunno why though.

    Does anyone have a tip on how to get proportions right?
    I know of using a grid, measuring more.. as I do find I'm rather lazy when it comes to measuring, using grids and whatnot, maybe that is holding me back? Is there any other way?

    I want it to improve, for now the only way I know how, is to practice more.
    So, back to the drawing board!

    You're really coming along nicely! It's cool to see the difference from the first page to the last, so much improvement! Haha it's fun that you were afraid to post humans 'cause you weren't too good at them and now look at those portraits! Amazing! Congrats and keep it up!

    I can not call it a approved method but if i have problems with the proportion I myself do one of these three things:

    1. Trying to convert the object into simple forms.
    I find them easier to compare.

    2. I start out with a "starting line". (One line of the object)
    Everytime I draw another line of the object I compare it to my "starting line".
    Is the other line in comparision to the other too big or to small?
    And so on.

    3. Try to look at the nagative space of the object. For example I like to imagine a square which is my frame. This helps me if I am too focused on the proportions of the object but I seem not to go anywhere with it.

    Other than that I wish you fun while improving and hope you can get to the level you want yourself to be.

    update

    LuckyCharm: thanks, I'm glad you see so much progress!
    It's true, sometimes it feels like learning starts all over again, at each drawing or painting. Although I know I must be learning stuff. It's not easy to pinpoint exactly what I've learned, it is somewhat diffuse. Quite unlike learning for an exam for example, where you know it, or you don't.
    I do have a better, firmer understanding of drawing people now

    Warforce17: thanks! I'm sure I've read all these tips somewhere before, but it's good you remind me of them. I shall have to incorporate them into a more structured approach to becoming a better artist.
    I am having fun while drawing/painting, so I've got that part covered.
    Thanks for the encouraging words, I'll take 'em to heart.

    Went back to a few older works that were lying around and tried to make them better. Also went ahead with a flower painting.
    Update on Darth Maul is due, took a crappy picture. Need to change some things.

    I know it's not much conceptart lately, but that'll change soon enough.

    update..chaos!

    Ok, so I was going to finish Darth Maul, and the portrait of the woman, and the flower, and the creatures.... and... but, but.. I started some other drawings instead!
    Lol, I laugh at my brain. Stubborn brain.

    Ah well, here it is, more stuff to finish. But first, the Darth Maul, the portrait of the... you get it.

    updateje

    Ok, so I've started to open some sketches in photoshop and see if I can push them into the digital realm.
    I know next to nothing of photoshop, so no shortcuts, just handpicking colors (greyscale atm) with a round brush,
    setting opacity to either 100 to block out forms and then to roughly 50 to fill in those forms.
    No idea if this is anywhere near what you're supposed to do, but only one way to learn it - and that is just do it.

    Still work in progress, so lots of unfinished areas (still fiddling around with composition, where the wings and legs and arms should go and so on). The sketches are somewhere in my sketchbook - I dunno, maybe I should put them side by side for comparison?

    If you'd be so kind as to rip it to shreds - I need to build a digital portfolio within a week - lol ! Thanks in advance. And stay tuned!

    update

    Hey peoples of CA!

    For now, a small update - still working on digital portfolio.
    Holy crap - what have I gotten myself into.

    I've put off working in photoshop for quite a while as I want to get better at workin in traditional media.
    But who am I kidding: I want to be a better visual artist - in any medium available. Including photoshop.
    So, I shall venture forth drawing, painting and photoshopping into the future.
    I really want to become the best I can be - and make a living with my art eventually.

    So. Even if I don't get the small job that I might get through a friend, I'm learning shitloads in photoshop right now.
    Did anyone ever notice that building light/shadow is a pain? I've got to understand that sometime too.

    I have put up the original sketches as well, for comparison.
    Any tips/tricks/advice on improving these?

    update

    I managed to do very little in the past 2 days - so much other stuff going on in life, so few hours in the day
    So without further ado, a shameless bump of my sketchbook.

    I did do a colortest on the catdemon thing, took about 10 minutes.
    Since I have seen many more professional guys on these boards making black/white drawings first and slapping on colors later, I figured I'd do the same.
    It does seem to work as you don't really have to think about colors when drawing. Figuring out and trying all kinds of brush options.
    How to color those things efficiently I don't know yet - but I'm learning a lot and I see potential in the options Photoshop has to offer.
    Drew everything with a round brush, sizes 90 something to about 16 at the smallest.

    Hopefully a big update soon.

    Thanks for looking, H.

    update

    ...but first a small update

    I've been practicing in photoshop - this time, an old environment sketch that I've decided to finish in photoshop. Work in progress. . .

    My workflow is very chaotic btw; the sketch for this is on the 2nd page I think. Sorry if that makes following the process somewhat harder.

    update

    Man, I feel ashamed of the quality of my work of late.

    Been browsing some sketchbooks and hot damn!
    There is so much serious asskicking going on I may as well quit.
    20year olds tumbling over one another, outclassing me on every turn.

    Fuck it.

    I will go on to crawl from under the crumbs that are left for me to feed on and I will kick ass, damnit!
    All I have to do, is remember that it will take a while before I do so.
    Just bide my time, keep working, working, working and then, when everyone's asleep: bam! Whaddaf*ck? Awesomeness!
    *keeps dreams alive*

    For now, 2 more scribbles in photoshop. Put in some backgrounds this time.

    till next time, thanks for looking,
    I'll keep working, H.

    update

    Sorry for the ramblings in the previous post.
    I'm drawing quite a lot lately and there are definately some improvements.
    So I should be happy. It just feels that I'm not improving fast enough.

    I guess we all go through those feelings once in a while, so no worries there.

    A small update; still working on my digital pieces, but I cannot help it, so I'm sketching in between. I just like making new things I guess.
    Here's a few sketches and a small update on the painting of the dragon.
    Any comments or crits are much appreciated.

    Keep it up, all of you! H.

    Hey there my friend! Good thing that you are working really hard! Nice updates. I really like this, Darth Maul painting and this. Allthough I think the lips should be more tilted, they are not in the same line with the eyes now. I think your face proportions are looking good, you just have to take the time on each work to make the measurements and see for example how tilted the head is and how it affects the facial features. Anyways good job, keep it up! Also I envy you imagination with these creatures.

    update

    Hey guys and gals!
    Welcome, to another fascinating episode of..... update!
    An ongoing series in which multiple storylines are intertwined and plots revolve around one another in an ever ongoing quest for perfection.
    And deep, immersive characters will keep you coming back for more.

    "Ok," you say. "I see the multiple intertwined storylines. In other words: chaos."
    "But where are the deep, immersive characters?"


    Ah, well, you'll have to keep coming back here to get to know them, eh?

    Satupeikko: thanks, my friend! Yeah, the painting of the woman is still a work in progress; needs some tweaking still. It has been stopped for now, since I'm working very hard to build a digital portfolio that might get me a small job as an illustrator. *fingers crossed* .. no, cannot draw like this! *uncrosses fingers* phew!
    Btw: fairy tale ogre? Are you like, a 10ft (3meters) tall fairy?

    .. so, some practicing environments coloring (b/w) in photoshop, a colortest on the zergling thing and some posemaniacs where I just drew the pose for like 10 minutes, to learn where muscles go. Feels like I'm learning a little more about anatomy - but still a long, long way to go.

    Haha nope I'm more like 100-150 meters tall goblin from tha fairytales. True story. Wikipedia even has a very good description of me: "A goblin is a legendary evil or mischievous creature, a grotesquely evil or evil-like phantom." Yeah.
    Anyways I would still like to see more darker values on your pencil drawings. Or is it just the scanner that lightens them?

    update

    Satupeikko: haha, LOL! I just googled it, since it suddenly struck me like a strange word; wondered if it were a name at all.
    Evil goblin, eh? I'll better watch you then.
    The images are taken with my smartphone (scanner broke down on me) so their quality is a little crappy.
    I try to tweak the brightness & contrast a little in photoshop to make them more like the real thing.
    The real drawing being somewhat light; mostly HB pencils, sometimes 2B.
    But good point, I'll experiment with darker pencilling from now on. See if it works.

    Still practicing photoshop - round brush for now, playing with all kinds of settings that go with it. Although mainly I just play with opacity and flow.

    Some update on the portal landscape (added a dude for size) and a referenced landscape study.
    Both still works in progress.

    Thanks for looking. Comments and crits? Feel free to speak your mind.

    update

    Pfft coloring in photoshop is not my strong point.
    Then again, I 've just started it, so who am I kidding.

    Some posemaniac studies, colored demoncat thing (I like the previous try better actually) and some color on the portal. Totally over the top, but hey.

    Any comments/crits appreciated.
    Till next time, H.

    update

    Hey peoples of the world!

    I've come up with a concept of tiny dragons, that has probably been thought up many times before, but what the hell. I'm thinking of doing more of these. For practice.
    Mainly practicing photoshop - because I find it harder to work with than, say, a pencil. Or paint. Or any other analog medium.
    As for now, I'm working with round pencil/paintbrush on 2 layers (one for the background, one for the creature)

    H.

    This one is based on a tropical poisoned frog, bright colors, froglegs.

    Update: another one; still wip. This one is based on a bird.
    Small one, like a robin. Tiny, highly aggressive. Harmless.
