Long time no see Jens! Your studies looks awesome, looking forward to our competition :3
@ Velocity Kendall: Hahah.
@ Wheeljack18: Thanks. Hopefully I will.
@ telohs: Many thanks. I'm looking forward to it as well.
Here's an update from me.
An attempt at a refless painting and a bunch of sketches:
More stuff. Some sculpts, an Alchemy doodle, more charcoal-lovin' and a lot of Bammes exercises.
a photostudy that i aborted (ref)
some dude with antlers i painted on my smartphone. i used autodesk's sketchbook mobile, and it's pretty great. it got layers and layer-modes, a good selection of brushes, nice UI and the possibility to save your work as an .psd so you can continue working on your computer. the screen-size is of course a big problem, but on the other side it keeps me from getting too much into details.
photostudy of a pretty cool asian guy w/ a cig (ref)
film noir photostudy (ref)
also done in sketchbook mobile
oh, oh. my breaking bad t-shirt will be up for sale on TeeFury on Saturday, February 18 (and on that day only)

experimenting around with the lasso tool. please forgive me for the nightmare-inducing face.
Snake anno 1885. i tried to achieve a "pen-marker-pencil on brown paper"-look.
digital painting from ref. experimenting with airbrushing
some charcoal sketches. the two women are done from ref.
rough mock-up for a t-shirt design I'm planning- a crossover between Drive and Mad Max/Death Proof
some otters I painted after seeing one down by the waterside the other (otter) day
a cat that is a cube. nyacube.
a Japanese monkey done from ref. I'm starting to love the lasso-tool more and more
A boy from imagination
Jens, I swear your stuff is awesome. It's just nice to look at even if it's not perfectly drawn. It makes me want to draw more as well :>
Many thanks, Fiskepudding
monkey knight from imagination
just some sketching done digitally
bammes studies. charcoal and graphite
post-its painted from life. much more fun than painting from photos
photostudy of lips. yes, there's most def too much light on the upper lip
another photostudy. i couldn't bother finish this one
a lady. painted from imagination
a bunch of sketches.
everything that sports rectangular speech bubbles are self-portaits (save for one Ice Cube sketch)
and a photostudy of Ron Burgundy that doesn't look like Ron Burgundy at all im so ashamed of myself but at least I got to work on my color and rendering
A portait of Hunter S Thompson, from imagination. No shirt or background though, as I'm dog-tired of this piece. Probably goes to show how I shouldn't focus on individual parts, but rather the the entire thing eeeeh
And here's the greyscale (is there any way to thumb images??)
I laughed my ass off with the flying cubical feces in post #35
Anyways very neat sketchbook
@Fiskepudding: hehehh, i might do more japanese animes soon oh and yep, that's starfox alright. the head isn't stocking's though
@Jarkuzy: Hah, thanks I will!
@Fiskepudding: It's some kind of spaceship/aircraft carrier. You park your ride on top, on the glass disc, and then you can travel down to the tubular living-quarters part. The design's heavily based on a bath scale, luls. And thanks!
Here are some digital pieces done from imagination.
A big fan of orange soda.
and a tribal broad, basking in moonlight. It was originally going to be a chest up thing, but I got tired and cropped it away :/
I feel like I'm not going anywhere at all, so constructive criticism and/or some motivation would be appreciated
Photostudy from Blade Runner
Power Girl, from imagination.
Photo studies! From Inglourious Basterds, and a photograph of Gwendoline Christie (what a name!)
got lazy on the first one, as you might see. i should stop being lazy.
anyways, constructive criticism is very much welcome
Whoopsie! I've been forgetting to update this for a while. Instead of uploading all the stuff I've done since last update, I'll just jump straight to my most recent work.
Here's a bunch of figure drawings. I have the hardest time balancing what I know (stuff from anatomy books, Loomis, etc) vs what I see.
I've made a habit to attend around 3-5 figure drawing workshops per week though, so I'll eventually figure (hah!) this out
Tips, tricks, criticism, uplifting words- all welcome
Domo arigato, fiskepudding ))
haha thanks, mayne.
still-life in charcoal. I should smooth my jazz out more o_O
portrait of michael fassbender in charcoal. didn't have time to finish it all up. overall, I'm content about it though.
Poster for a charity- I chose the SF Food Bank.
Some figure drawings. I feel like mt progress there has dramatically stagnated Haven't had time to go to workshops- where I proccess the stuff I learn in class.
And lastly a master copy, from Prud'hon. Charcoal. Toned paper.
À la prochaine
that's some mad progress you've made Jens! These kinds of results keep me going on myself. Loving it.
Many thanks! Glad to hear I can help to inspire you
somewhat shameful guilty pleasure. zbrush with some photoshop painterovery
