@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.
... 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

Reason: moar pictures

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!
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.
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!
