Some color mixing, trying to mix skin tones. I also tried out some graffiti today for the first time, extremly fun! and I did some perspective studies, been reading Perspective! For Comic Book Artists by David Chelsea. Lastly some hands with crayons.

The color in that female figure study just keeps gettting better and better and that skull in ink is BAD ASS! Good work my friend.
March 31st, 2009, 05:08 PM
BRINKMAN!: Thanks man!
Some studies in pastel (crayon, not sure), a digital self-portrait with a small mouth I just noticed, some ink stuff and doodles.

We joined around the same time and you're on page 7 already!?!? Man I need to get my act together. Loving the studies, remember to be very deliberate in your mark making, but don't let that hinder your fluidity and ability to produce very organic lines. Keep it up!

hemP: Hehe, but i´ve been really lazy the last couple of days Thanks man! I think I sometimes rush for example the paintings and just put a color down because it´s already mixed, I need to work on that!
Doodles. Not much else done due to laziness and being tired.
April 5th, 2009, 08:19 PM
They're fun doodles though!
April 7th, 2009, 06:36 PM
BRINKMAN!: Thanks man
Studies! The eyes are off in the charcoal self-portrait
April 18th, 2009, 04:13 PM
dude, I been gone for about 2 weeks and now i see awesomeness?! good to see your improvements, much more life in your works now.
April 18th, 2009, 05:58 PM
you have some funny sketches. Nice improvement
April 21st, 2009, 11:02 AM
This newest self portrait is probably the best one so far. Well done. It could use a bit more shadow to define the forms of your face, since right now it falls a bit flat in the bridge of the nose.
April 27th, 2009, 05:16 PM
Alm0st: Thanks for the comments man and welcome back!
maeshanne: Thank you!
BRINKMAN!: Thank you, will think about that on the next one.
I haven´t updated for about 3 weeks or so because i´ve been on vacation and also on a class trip after that, but i´m back now
Some doodles and a poster me and a friend did for school.
May 5th, 2009, 03:07 PM
About 15 - 20min each.

Welcome back from your trip. I really really dig that poster that you and your friend did. That model posing with the skeleton looks fun to draw. The white highlights really brings it to life. Though it might be a little bit much on a couple of the faces of the model, so try to conserve it for the brightest of brights. (unless the light was directly shinning on his face.)

Nice figure studies! The strongest ones are the two where the guy is dancing with the skeleton, nice proportions there. Keep up the good work.
Also, I agree with Frank about the highlights, they need to be toned down a bit.
May 7th, 2009, 05:15 PM
Alm0st: Thanks. Yeah, it was fun to draw the skeleton. The light was actually directly on his face but I came to the same conclusion myself about keeping the white chalk for the brightest brights.
BRINKMAN!: Thanks man, and yep I agree.
Some more croquis, this time in charcoal.
May 8th, 2009, 09:17 AM
Really nice modelstudies! I love the one when he has his back half turned from the viewer.
See the TURTLE of enormous girth!
On his shell he holds the earth.
His thought is slow but always kind;
He holds us all within his mind.

Gorgoleon: Thanks man! Dropping by your sketchbook next.
Some stuff done in Alchemy (great sketching program), a sketch for the DSG, self portraits, hands and some bug studies done in ink on watercolor paper.
May 11th, 2009, 05:05 PM
A digital portrait from imagination that turned out very much like a selfportrait , studies and some posemaniacs.
May 15th, 2009, 03:30 PM
Great form in the latest face (the one on the page of mouths). Cool new ideas in the experiments. I think you should do some studies from everyday life so you can learn about drapery and whatnot.

eminkey2003: Thanks man, yep will do! I will also do that sketch that I said I would do.
Ok, I´ve been busy the last days moving back home, packing up and stuff, but I have now managed to create a drawing schedule for myself witch I think will help me get up in the mornings So a small update today and then i´m following the schedule starting tomarrow.
Some studies from photos (terra galleria) inspired by Algenplfeger's studies, some posemaniacs, hands and the images I did for a illustration competition a few months ago. I was supposed to do the cover and 3 more images and also sketches for the rest.
The story was about a princess that went to the toilet in her sleep and was one night photographed by a journalist. When the king saw the photos in the newspaper the toilet door was shut, witch led to the princess becoming fat and eventually explode. After that the door was opened.

The illustrations are awesome! I love the style! Is that a little girl shit-rocketting across the dinner table?!?! I love it!
The hand studies are really paying off, you've gotten really good at them! Great update.
May 27th, 2009, 05:47 PM
BRINKMAN!: Thanks man, great to hear, and yeah, she is shit-rocketting across the dinner table haha
The first two are pictures of my last project at school (graphic prints (?)), a bottle we could do anything with, posemaniacs (15, 30 and 60 seconds mixed), hogarth studies, a study (from reference), self-portrait and some landscape (from reference).

Quick correction. Make sure alignment is correct when painting faces
Everything else is looking top notch man!

Alm0st: Thanks man! Now I see the right side of his jaw is a bit big.
Some perspective training (from Carl Dobsky's "Perspective volume 1" CA download), a sketch for eminkey2003 (collaboration), some pencil rendering and a portrait from imagination (witch I did after watching Zhang Lu and Jason Manley's " Portraits volume one" also a CA download). Both videos are really great and very informative.

mike butkus: Thanks!
Some Hogarth studies (yeah the face is skewed), a landscape study (from reference) and a portrait from imagination that turned out a bit strange.
June 1st, 2009, 02:29 AM
Nice work on the studies lately (especially the Hogarth ones). It's nice to see that you're finding more hard edges in your digital paintings too.
I hope you don't mind that I did a really quick paint-over of the first woman. They both have a case of sinking-nose-syndrome, and the second one has some issues with eye placement... remember, the inner edge of the eye/tear duct sits on the same vertical line as the outer edge of the nose.
June 4th, 2009, 11:18 AM
BRINKMAN!: Thanks and I don´t mind at all but I think you forgot to attach the file Yeah, true about the eyes, will think about that the next time.
I had some friends visiting so I took a break from drawing. These are from this monday and tuesday, I also did some perspective studies. I think i´m going to keep working on the acrylics portrait.
June 6th, 2009, 05:17 AM
I think, your art is creepy.
June 7th, 2009, 10:17 PM
Great form as usual, but since Alm0st pointed out the alignment problem, I notice that a lot of your faces have the skewing problem. Careful there!
