Turn up the bass, bring out the sketchbook
This will be my attempt at a sketchbook I'll keep to post in and which should have some function to catalogue my progress as I delve into mysteries such as color, value and stuff, which I've never been that good at. But practise is the master of all skill, so trying my best to learn is my only way out, I figure. That or die(or at least get tired and go to sleep frustrated) trying.
I think this is the first thing I've done with my Wacom that looks presentable in any way. Took around 2 hrs. I'm doing a lot of reference sketches, dunno if I can post them, since I don't have any rights to the photos and stuff I've used as referrence. And I also dunno if it's all that intresting to look at illustrations that resemble(less than more in my case) a photography. But I find that I can learn through carful observation of how light works by studying the colors with the color picker, and then repicking them manually(would be too easy to just ctrl+pic and re-paint).
Oh well, that's about that for talk. I'll try to keep posting here at least a few times a week. I'm happy for any intrest in my doodlings and figuring out how stuff works, critique and espessially advice(anything goes) is always very appreciated. Feel free to wreck anything you see, as long as you can also give some ideas on how to improve me, since negative comments without any ideas on how to progress is just useless(and kinda uninspiring when working to learn).
Anyway, here's what I'll kick off with. I hope to get "better" with each thing I do, which works for in a kinda 50/50 fashion, at best.
Here's a pic of what stuff looked like when I began hitting my head in the wall(coloring has always been my weakest link, as well as painting miniatures made my idea of coloring totally perverted).
Cheers, and all the best to ya guys.

Reason: fixing the thumbnail thingie
Errator sum, mente obscura
Deportatus, in vacuum
Nigresvit nox, curro perdizus
Ceacatus lux, inhibet me.
