My name is Paul. I have wandered this forums for ages, but never had the courage to make a sketchbook. I've been drawing for quite a while as a hobby with some stops in-between but decided to really take it serious now.
Also the things that dan and dave sad in there live streams pushed me to finally get out there. So here we go!
crits and comments are more then welcome!

I really need to boost my anatomy so I started it in the loomis books.
Also some vilpuu.
Some old studies I did for color from mapcrunch.com
Back to Loomis now!
Awesome start, I like the road paintings you have there, maybe you can push the contrast a bit more? The bottom painting doesn't seem to have a clear light source for example.
I'm doing loomis as we speak now. later on I will make some new road paintings and will keep your crit in mind and try to push the contrast more.
blindshot: thanks! I wil try to add more value to all my drawings. Trying to get a hang on loomis but I will get three sometime.
Some loomis, have more but need to scan them when I get home.
Some value studies and portraits I did some years ago.
Man I'm slacking like hell. hate myself for that!
I've just taken a week off from work so if you don't see a huge art dump here by the end of next week you can kick my ass.
to start it off here's a study I did this week.
Crazy Pills: Thanks man, I'm trying to keep it going
RennYinford: The link to your images are broken, so I don't really understand what you are trying to say.
Another road painting sketch I need to do a lot more of these enviros. Had a hard time with this one. Trying to suggest the details without painting every freaking leaf.
Any tips are more then welcome.
Some Loomis studies. more more more!!
Working on a piece from imagination. There are so many flaws in it. comp, design, colors, etc. So if you guys have any tips it's more then welcome, it would make my day
Changed the comp and lightning after some crits. I'm going to take this pic on in stages doing studies in between.
Hi! Looks like you really understand value well...your pencil sketches, like the portraits in #9 have so much depth to them.
Lovin Clint and Wolverine. Keep those Loomis and Vilpuu studies coming!
Hey nice updates since I last stopped by.
I have a crit for you on that comp of the Conan-looking guy in the throne.
1) The framing of that shot is VERY static and kind of uninspired. I think you could give it a lot more dynamicism by simply changing the angle of the camera 10-20 degrees up or down. It'll tell a lot more of a story. I'm imagining it as if our viewpoint was close tot eh floor. It will enhance the triangle composition and make him even more powerful. You'd have to tweak it to find the perfect angle, but I definitely think a VERY powerful image is hidden away in this sketch. It looks like you already took the camera angle down a little from the first one, I'd push it even further.
2) The foreshortening on the legs isn't really showing. The knees don't appear to be very far forward away from the body.
3) The pose and expression. This one's kind of just taste, but his pose is also pretty static, especially with his current expression. This just goes along with the framing really because it's all pretty straight forward.
Anyway, I hope you push this piece because I think you could really do a lot with it given your skill. Keep on pushing! NEVER SURRENDER! *evil laugh*
Long time since I post. I have some up and down's when it comes to drawing. I sometimes lose interest or just to busy with work and stuff. I have some more free time now so hope I can get back in and hold on this time. I sometimes can shoot myself for slacking. but here we go...
Some screenshot studies and an sergent study. Do you guys have any tips how to approach a study such as sergent? With this one I studied it for value and brush strokes.
Quick Enviro study. Man do I have some problems with these need to learn how to suggest things with strokes.
Some fun I had with perspective, a still life and a painting I made for my brother of his child.
Loving the Sargent and the close up of the face. The unfocused look on the left eye is sweet.
Don't stop!! No slacking!
Man do I have a hard time with these landscape studies. Any tips are more then welcome.
Another one. I will just keep going till I get the hang on it I'm trying to make this a daily routine.
Landscape of today. Hope to do some more and some head studies. Decided to focus on heads and landscapes for the comming weeks. I'm still lost when it comes to landscapes. Can't wrap my head around all the small details.
