first of all my heartfelt thanks for your warm words addressed to me !
second will just be a "thanks" to you for sharing your wonderful work with us !
P.S.: may I ask your permission to eventually link to your SB in my Signature ?
It's amazing how much you posted within the last two years. It's crazy. You've been working real hard and it shows. The one thing I might recommend is to watch your edges when you paint. They've gotten better though. Overall great sketchbook. I'm looking forward to seeing more.

Dope Feind - Thanks man! hmm, I was trying to really avoid tangents for this one, would be cool if you can point out where some of them are.. can't seem to notice any that would bring the piece down.. though, I've also been staring at it for some time haha.
Teundeboer - Thanks! Pokemons rule! ( I wanna do some more now )
lolbbq - Thanks man, it's a never ending story.. kinda.. haha. I'm not quite 'there' yet
alexson - Hahah! inte för att göra dig besviken men.. jag sitter fast i småland just nu (bor för övrigt i skåne så.. du måste ta dig till de danske! ) annars är det lugnt, hey.. sketchmeet nån dag? dude, vart bor du i vårt avlånga land?
Vaejoun - WOOOH!! as Luffy would have done it (One Piece for the win!) good to hear gogo draw! .. as long as I think my work sucks I won't be able to win any challenges.. sad but true.
Partisan - Thanks man! and sure go ahead! no problems.. though.. I've used up all the space in my name so I can't have any more people down there
Loathsome - Arrh, no! nooo, not spankingh! (my girl gives me enough of that already.. true story!) Thanks for the backup Conney, I'm slowly trying to get back on track, pulling myself together. Thanks.
Istmin52 - Thanks man! I'm becoming more aware!
Hey friends, thanks a ton for your kind words! it's really great to get so much feedback even though I'm inactive as hell and don't visit your sketchbooks often.. sorry.
I want to share words with you.. many words but right now I can't. They won't come .. I hope to soon lighten the burden. For now, I am studying again. I am getting better.. and finding my way back to doing what I love and loving I what I do. I am thankful for spring.. watching the snow melt reminds me that no matter how tough life is at the moment, it won't last - it will change, for the better, sometimes for the worse. Always remember that life is in your hands and that you don't face any challenges that aren't yours to face. Remember why you chose to live this day. Where there is love, there is hope, and friends.. love is everywhere and everything. Be kind to yourself.. you are so much more than you think you are.. take care.
*edit* Thinking of asking admin to merge my 2 sb's into one sb. How does that sound?

That little piece, of what seems to be tentacles, is really intriguing. It's small and simple, yet has a really nice sense of movement and flow to it. Love the movement in that dragon piece. I feel like you've used that particular red in a lot of your dragon pieces, though.
Beautiful works as usual mate!!! In terms of composition in the piece of the predator the background may be a little more busy that it should.A mask in the main subject and a gradient to drop the contrast behind may help in a situation like that.But even like that i really like it a lot.It have this brushwork of yours.
Keep up the awesome work!!!
this wins my coolest thing ive seen today hands down

also working on a dragon piece, re-worked some things thanks to Si_swe's suggestion, also workin on CHOW.. I'm with my girl this weekend so dunno if I can finish. Will see.. take care peeps. The other day was a sentimental day, this time I'm not as much "in the clouds" Did a small test to see if it fits into a magic card, and yeah.. it does! workin on a portfolio for wizards of the coast, this one will be one of the badass wanna-be magic cards
wicked stuff! I like your coloring. Would like to see the progress of that giant beast over there
Sick work as always bro. Dig the studies, I've got Hamptoms book and it looks like gold, but I haven't had the chance to go through it yet. I may start right now haha. Good luck on that wizards portfolio man...I'm working on the exact same thing at the moment!
NickyBeats - Thanks! Guess I'll have to go with the flow!
Partisan - Fuck yeh!! Imagine getting to MAGIC CARDS!! omfG!
Macimovic - Thank you!

Ludic - hehe Ludic my man! tackar
lolbbq - muahah, gogo draw!
Metal Fingers - Studdddddds! hell yea man!
Hey guys, so I had to drop the Chow in finals.. didn't get to work it during the weekend.. got around 2 hours yesterday and 2 hours today.. want to give it at least 10 more hours.. So I'll put it aside for a few days and pick it up again. We have 1week's break starting friday!! wooh! I wanna go home.. so I can draw all my waking hours..
Hey man, I hate to say it but I preferred the initial sketch on the latest character WAY more than what you have now. I really like the red glow you have now, but the actual character I feel was much stronger beforehand (now he looks really short, has weird head placement, has odd looking legs etc)

Gillade stage 3 bättre, men den vart skitcool ändå! Jag har förmodligen sagt de förut men har du lust att ge mig typ nå tips eller kritik på mina Pencils? Har problem som fan med dem. :/
so i was going through your sb again....dowloaded your brush pack!!!
you owe me a new pair of pants dude....
keep bein awesome! and just so this post isnt just another asspat, heres some crits: i too liked the first step on that chow. just like andrew sonea said, i like that red in the final, but the original sketch i think was stronger cuz leo's looking at us and now hes kinda detached and staring off into the distance. the overall color scheme was a bit better too i believe. that armor really stands out now; maybe bring in some of that strong red into it (hint: ruanjia! ) hope that helps!
