I discovered this forum some time ago and have been lurking in the shadows for, well, several months, seeing great artist share their works and progressing (the speedpainting thread being the cause for many a sleepless night because of it's awesomness)
Finally I've worked up the courage to start a sketchbook here in hope of maturing as an artist with your helpful comments and/or kicks in the groin
So starting off with my Werechihuahua!
EDIT -- PICTURES ON THE NEXT PAGE SUCK LESS!!

This guy goes on my list of things I never want to meet face to face.
In a good way, of course! I like it, though I'm not sure about the background and 'shadow'. They don't seem to fit in with the rest. Not organic enough -- in my opinion of course.
Awaiting more work...
*back from vacation*
Hei thanks guys.. Didn´t think I´d get noticed in the whole swarm of sketchbooks here
Blenditall: Yeah.. the shadow is meant to be a placeholder..but it´s been tampered with now..
This sketch´s just an anatomy and dynamic pose practice

Quick sketches of the main character of a story i´m illustrating, at different ages

One thing to note with the last image, is that if this is meant to be the same guy at different ages in his life, then you should note that the nose in the 2nd stage is protruding slightly, yet in the 3rd it is recessing around the bridge? The nose being made of cartilage doesnt really alter its form over a life time and tends to remain slightly more consistent in its mass and proportions...
Liking the devil guy too, would be cool to see him taken further, maybe even to color? ;-)
Thanks Randalthor, appreciate the tip about the nose
The Devil guy, I´m at the moment designing an armor for the dude,
so, until then, I bring you a sketch of a Cherub
Hei, thanks Brun..
Here´s some [mediocre] anatomy sketches
(no refs used btw)
Though, don´t hold your breath for color studies, since I suck at them
took about 30-40 minutes

Quick Update on that Demon Guy...
Gonna work on the axe (alot), give him more armor (going for rusty-spiky iron and leather)
hope ya´ll like
Mountaintop quick color study
hey man, good stuff in here.
i love that chihuahua, brilliant idea.
you should try to clean up your potraits, either leave out the lines totally or redraw them with one stroke for each line instead of scribbly lines, looks much more defined and finished! just put a new layer ontop of your drawing and do it again in confident strokes, its eassy because you are basically just tracing.
and for the mountain, i like how you captured the light ontop of it bt the composition is a bit "dull" maybe add some coulds to break the empty space or show some other mountains in the far distance (less saturated and more blueish)
keep it up!
Sketchbook (daily Oils):
Arf, the chihuahua reminds me of the dog I live with. She should've so been called Ren [got the attitude as well].
I like that row of faces you've done, good representation of age.
The mountain could do with heavier contrast to bring out the shadows [if you see what I mean]. It looks quite 'flat'.
I like the colouring with the chihuahua though, keep going.
Hei thanks guys.
I´ll do better.
Drawing girls has always been somewhat of a problem for me.. so, here´s a practice:
Reference used btw.. and it took at least an hour
Ok, just watched Android Johnsson´s Thumbnail sketch DVD, (which is awesome and I highly recommend u getting it)
and, little experimentation, and voila!
a Dragon thingy...
Just for fun
(yeah, was bored)
Just fooling around..
A Matte painting for a school assignment,
think it turned out OK...
though crits are always welcome *wink wink*
Yet again, a long overdue Update:
A flying/hovering squid monster thingy Conceptart for a fictional game I´m making (schoold project)
Took about an hour and a half
Another one, just for the heck of it.
Something I scribbled together just for the heck of it...
ZBrush, 3D Studio Max and Photoshop.. took altogether about 2,5 hours
Wicked stuff... my fave is the werechihuahua - made me chuckle. What are you studying?
Hei, thanks Sinneart!
I´m currently studying at the Icelandic Multimedia design..er.. guess you could call it university.. and I´m aiming towards either concept artist (surprise surprise) or ingame modellor.. (though, i've been neglecting my 3D lately)
I hope this pic ain't too disturbing for ya'll..
There´s some symbolism here somewhere..
EDIT: this is btw a WIP I tend to finish during the holidays
Really need to practice inorganic drawing and rendering (amongst other things obviously).
This is a speedsketch of the Ilkejav MK 7 Long Range transport shuttle..
..thinking of making a ingame model of it, just for kicks (yeah, I´m a 3D nerd also) as soon as school chills down a bit.
Just thought I'd stop neglecting this here little SB
