    NEXT: cheers mate!
    As to why (almost) no humans, no particular reason, or so I like to think.
    Fact is, I did not like to draw them when I was little, I always drew sharks, lions, , dinosaurs, etc., even flies! Just animals of all kinds, mostly in natural scenery and surroundings. I like nature. It's beautiful out there.

    I did not like to draw humans (they seemed all alike, and boring).
    Last couple of years that definitely changed, I do like to be able to draw them now, there are many different types of people and it is quite the challenge to subtly convey with paint or ink or whatever. I tend to draw similar, comic style "uebermenschen" - square-jaw dudes, big boobed and small-waist females.
    But there is so much more variety.

    I'm just not very good at it yet, so a little shy to post studies.
    But I will put up more! This is the year I'm going to ROCK (a self-proclaimed goal) so I have no excuses.

    For now, some more sketches/stuff:

    And just to kick off, a female body study!
    (does this make this sketchbook officially NSFW?
    or is this merely artistic freedom)?

    update!

    Wow, it's been a while, damnit!
    Well,my scanner broke down, so lots of stuff is not available for upload.
    Some paintings are however, in various stages of completion.

    I really am starting to like painting as an alternative way to draw.
    However, there are still many things I need to learn.

    For one, there is hardly any structure in my process yet.
    This site is stuffed with information about how to paint, what steps to take and how to advance your understanding of form, color, shape, composition, and light. !! .. and how to handle building up your painting.
    I just tend to pick that all up and chaotically express it while working.
    That's not a bad thing - it just means that lots of efficiency is lost.
    > new resolution (speaking to myself here): more structure!

    But I feel I have been slacking way too much - some sketchbooks are updated daily! and many people here draw themselves to ever greater heights because of it. I shall have to do the same.
    Thanks guys and gals, you're an inspiration! Seriously though, you are.

    So there we go, update (crappy phone photo's, sorry)

    update!

    Hey CA, I've got my first expo up and running!
    Although it is quite small, 8 pieces in total, I am very happy with it
    I feel jolly like a child, lol
    Next expo is soon thereafter, if you'd like to know more or have a look, drop me a line. It's in the Netherlands, northern city of Groningen.

    I am working on more paintings; 4 at present, that need to finish next week.
    I'm trying to get my butt into full speed ahead mode, producing, producing, producing! That way, I'll get better, faster .. I hope to be able to look at my work and say, "I've leveled up!"

    some of the pictures from the expo:

    moarrrr!

    Woohoo! I'm making more paintings!
    Still not as much, or as fast as I would like, but I am getting my lazy ass in some gear at least. So, currently working on these:

    Crit away! Burn them! They are witches!
    *will they float?*
