Dude I just checked out some of the work you did at my age. I think I may have a chance... I've really got to work hard. You're 16 now?
You've got some dope shit in here man, I've always liked that IF logo too. Maybe you could modify it a little bit though, try making it fold with the clothes, to me it just looks kind of slapped on there. His right arm also looks a bit odd, try to emphasize his brachioradialis more.
But yeah you're rendering looks great, I'm going to subscribe to this thread.

page 1 to now....
The amount of improvement you've made is extremely impressive. You have an extensive imagination that reaches no bounds, simply amazing. I was no where near as good as you are when I was your age, not one bit. Keep it up!
I know I put comment here before...
...but WOW I didnt realise you are 15 years old! OMG!
I suddenly feel very suicidal!
...When I was 15 I could barely do a decent stickman -.-
Thank you! After seeing this I strongly decided I have to draw all day and night because otherwise I`m pretty doomed!....argh!
Very very nice!
last piece is good, but a few things bug me.
On the left, his torso seems extremely straight( from the top of his arm down to his leg is straight)
The browns in the background and texture don't do it for me, the title "gothic angel" sounds very black and white to me, not brown.
The pose is very good, and the hair and tats are done very well.
Watch out for the feet too, the toes seem squished.
great work Kjartan!
edit: heard you are going to art school now, how's that going?
it'll be soo cool if you were to come to my school
nice stuff man, you really make me jealous
what the...! dude. i'm on the way grabbing my wacom and hitting my head with it.. but that won't be enough punishment for me.. well, let me explain
i'm painting since one year now, i browsed over ca.org the hole time but i locked myself in the dailysketchgroup... i somehow lost my motivation. i got started seriously a couple of weeks ago. im painting my ass off. the actual teenchallenge is a good motivation and also good improvement i think.. at the moment i'm doing the sketch and i just wanted to look for some updates.. somehow i decided to look for your sketchbook. i was totally stunned.. think i still am... and thought if u could still do the teenchallenge because i guessed u would be 19 or so... well.. crap! i'm seventeen now.. i now realized how dumb i mustve been wasting my time on other things then painting and drawing.. man your 15?!?!! .. *hmmppfff* think i have to catch up for ur skillz school has to wait so comment something on my piece at the teenchallenge. greez, hail and obeisance. jmh ps: i'm gonna open up a sketchbook soon, so u can see my haunt
Awesome work your last piece. You're getting better than good
I must insist on giving you a crit even though you might not think it's important. The typography could definately be better. I'm talking about the Teen Challenge letters, not your nickname in the background.
Not sure what it's called ( I should be ), try using settings to get your lowercase letters as big as your uppercase or reversed.
Think about the importance of the text. Is Teen Challenge important for the image? Try making it more obvious or perhaps less visible.
Serif's are probably they best choice here, but there's other fonts
Ok. Not that important, but since you're insisting on using text I felt obligated to nag abit.
The pants are alittle flat and seemed unfinished
the wings are bad ass
I really like the design elements you have going on to focus the viewer onthe figure, well done
actually the use of those elements reminds me of how brom would use circles and squares draw focus in his paintings as well.
Amazing! And you're only my age....
NOTE TO SELF: Do not compare yourself to other artistes. At all. Not even those at your age, because they kick your arse big time as well.
great stuff, my only suggestion is to work on anatomy more (if you arnt already) your figures are strong but you could push them further!
keep it up
you better make a career out of this ....it should be really easy for you to do that......wow man 2 years back i was definitely not there (not like i am rite now anyway...)....keep improving like this man .....
wolfbane... where are you? we miss really miss your apperience in the teen challenges hope you come along soon..
and i also would like to see some more posts in your sketchbook :] but maybe your busy atm. .. and by the way, i started the skechbook which i have told you before.. would be nice if you take a look

there's something a little dirty and slightly flat about your paintings which I'm not too fond of. Do you use texture overlays? could be it. Plus I think you might want to try get some stronger form shadowing into some things.
http://i30.tinypic.com/14b57xh.jpg This guy could benefit from more value change around forms and so on. he's looking a little cut out now.
Overall though sweet stuff keep it up!
Fantastic update man!
Its a pleasure to see some new stuff, as always, it kicks much ass. Much much ass. Really diggin' the dragon faces.
Here's my challenge piece for the headhunterguild vs Alti
awsome updates, i like the lighting in the last one. my only crit is you should add some fog at the bottom of the creatures legs.
Whoa man, you've come a long way from thos monkey sketches on the first page. Try to update more often if you can man its been a while since I've seen you on the boards. You got an IM I can add?
Cya around man it'd be cool if you checked out my sb.
