    Great respect that you still use real oils and paintbrushes and i love your sketches, you have great lines and you understand perspective and anatomy pretty good. Keep up the great work is all i can say really!

    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?*

    A couple of my friends might check this sketchbook later on, so obviously I need to get some titties in here for them to watch. There you go, guys!

    I really like the butterflies and animals from #48 Also I like your creature designs - albeit some of the proportions have issues with them

    but keep it up.

    update!

    more titties!

    himart - thanks! you too, btw.
    I paint with either acrylics or water based oil paint.
    (which is slow drying acrlyics really)

    dan liimatta - thanks man, appreciated!
    Proportion issues is indeed something I need to work on. Sometimes I see people use a cross for perspective/foundation, and they build up from there. But probably there's something more involved. I'll look into it.

    update

    I've been sketching and made the following stuff.
    One is a painting of a cow I'm working on, based on a photograph.
    Dragon thingy and sort of space-marine from imagination.
    Several roman statues from photographs - I screwed up their heads.
    And a portrait of a woman found on met-art I believe, screwed that one up pretty bad too. But hey. I figured I'd share some of my screw-ups as well.
    Back to the drawing board!

    Hi there Harmageddon! Good sb. Your paintings are starting to look better and better. I love the butterflies and this is my favorite painting so far.
    Beautiful colors! Also really nice pencil works, allthough your anatomy needs a little bit practise.

    Keep studying and keep painting! I'll be looking forward to seeing more from you!

    update!

    Hey there Satupeikko, thanks for your kind message!
    (sometimes it feels empty in here, as in ..."is that a voice I just heard?
    Oh, maybe it's the wind. Or the voices in my head. Nevermind. Keep posting."

    I'm glad you think the paintings are getting better - that is, of course, the idea. I'll put up a better picture of that painting once I finish it (some tweaking needs to be done still)
    You're correct, I should work on my anatomy; especially human anatomy.
    I will keep studying and drawing and painting, because I want to be a better artist. Or, I want to be an artist to begin with
    Welcome aboard my travels ! I hope you'll enjoy the ride!

    On a personal note:
    Right, so I kind of suck at drawing people.
    That needs to change. So, practicing at posemaniacs (1min sketches), drawing roman statues (reffed) and sketching angels from the mind.
    Of course I should get back to my paintings too.
    Also in this update, a better photo of one of my paintings.

    .. I have work to do. Back to the drawing board.
