what are you up to man? updateeeeeesss please!
you crazy, crazy man, i'll have to come visit you some day
Bendragon, Moai Thanks!
Mitze Heh - the gaps are huge, I haven't done anything between september to late december - not even browsed around, just reading books and playing games. & before that hah & Thanks.
TheGnoll Ah, I was taking a break from it all, just wanted to isolate myself and escape in some games and books. I'll probanbly be around a bit more forawhile. & I'll try and thanks
mattianelli Ah, good - I'm also using a crappy laptop nowdays, just got back to painting. Hows things on your end, still in Amsterdam, or back in Italy?
dump from december the 15th to today.
Sorry about the lack of presentation, need to get some sleep.
Such an amazing painting style! Just found another inspiration
There you are! Nice dump! Im liking the bird paintings, looks quite traditional. The last one is quite different from what you normally do so its great to see that. Stick around for the new year dude
I like the sort of stylized look on your last dump.
ninjacat11, Carnifex, young paddy1, IvoM Thanks
Bendragon It was fun, and I need to start vary myself more - at least while I was working I just wanted to relax while I was at home painting so I just fell into my old rutine - but now I hope I'll diverge a bit more. That said they are for some christmas cards, so I also had a reason to do it diffferently. & thanks.
& just something I was working on today
Vulgar` mm, besides some accidental colds and social calls (pff, christmas and new years eve, and friends!) - I've actually managed quite well - and o/
Todays doodle while watching up, zombieland and mostly while trying to avoid to watch any of the torrid Ice age 3 .
Hi Dan liimatta!
Amazing paintings man! Really love your art!
I've noticed some swedish comments on them and I was wondering if you could help me out.
You see, It's time for me to find some good art schools in Sweden which can lead me into a career in concept art or something like that. (either folkhögskola or Högskola)
I was wondering if you have some recommendations of any schools, perhaps you can tell me where you went.
If you by any chance live in near Malmö (you never know) perhaps you are interested in giving private lessons mainly in digital painting, for payment of course.
Hopefully you can give me some school pointers.
Thanks in advance!
Benjie A bit too long tonight, going to be a tired engine tomorrow - but thanks.
Wr00mWell I can't really recommed you anywhere for painting/drawing since I never went to any education for it (rather for other stuff like programming and web I don't use at all, but nevermind). Some friends have gone through various places, and in general it seems to work pretty good all over the place, but I really don't know any specifics about any school.
& I do live a bit far off (Etuna), but if I'll travel to Malmö, and I might soon at that, I'll be in touch.
Random doodle for the sake of posting something.
I'm loving the sort of lumpy quality to that last sketch.

Thanks, it was relaxing to mutate them out.
Ah, yes - for my personal stuff having fun is most important, though improving is also fun, so it's hard to judge sometimes ~ and thanks.
heh, visst - kan bli under våren om allt går som det är tänkt.
fooling around while listening to some Arvo Pärt
love, though love in this case.
Awesome sketches you got there! The post #332 is mmmm delicious! All those colors, varied paintings especially last two are breathtaking! Very awesome usage of contrast, values, and colors! Please keep that style up, I'm in love with it!!! Seriously!
You obviously got a good sense of colors, forms, and all, I only wish I oculd do it like that haha! Time to practice more! Thank you for the inspiration man and I'll be subscribing you!
hehehe, your first post images is perfect! nice nice
Sweet dump! (That's what I like)
So much colours and the b&w I likes. (I prefer thinner lines though)
Are you sure you're not working on a big piece next to these tiny little sketches.
A graphic novel perhaps? (You're a 3D/motion - er, true? Are you really that drained after a hard day of fun? )
Too nice Dan, keep inspiring!
Hey dan, thanks for stopping by at my SB! Wow, your use of colors and rendering abilities are something to be amazed of! I will surely be visiting yours more often!
Dm7 Thanks, and welcome back!
dwardo thanks, as for lines - well I mostly see them as construction lines that I'll later paint out - it's a bit silly, and probably stupid, but overall I'm lazy with lines, never clean them, never redraw them - just paint over - tsh tsh swoosh ~
kingkostas Thanks, and will do
Parsakoira Thanks and welcome back! ~
Random sexy fat troll chick with milk and golden shower milking devices - I blame my mind being somewhere else, but I don't know what Freud would say about my subconsciousness if that is true ~
Hallå! Disturbingly inspirational stuff you got, I have no idea what to feel about that troll one. Even though it's beautifull made I still think omg wtf.

Great brushstrokes and colorzzz
Threw some stars your way. I think it bumped you up a little
Wow you remembered me? lol! Thought nobody knew.. Anyways thank you for the welcome back! Now that's unexpectedDm7 Thanks, and welcome back!
Love the recent sketch you did, disturbing yet awesome. lol
good creative one .....best luck....!
LORD M well I get bored of doing the same, though that said I've gotten stuck in one style - but yeah, content wise I do want to do different things, and yet I'm mostly doing stupid characters in weird situations; falling ~ but thanks
Mischeviouslittleelf Exactly! I just can't contain myself!
Eddieee \o/ thanks, it's been awhile since I fell from 4.6 to below 4.5 ~ but now you remedied that for awhile: thanks!
Dm7 I'm narcissistic enough to sometimes venture to the earlier pages yes - and maybe it's the animated avatar, very remember-able. & yes, sexy isn't it?
some random studies/fun from today, no gore or weirdness - surprising myself.
The portrait is of my brother ~ but it's not really spot on, but I was lazy :bum:
