Quick sketches from life.
Hi Deodatus really love the work you have here, some really great anatomy studies and amazing machine designs
The last drawing of the superhero assasin is amazing my only crit would be that the legs, arms and chest area seem a bit bland, maybe some texture or different fabric would help
anyways keep up the great work!
Thank you so much for the nice feedback.
I will use a texture brush next time!
My next little experiment is this sailor. I tryed to work more with values (thanks, Jens) and work it up until I could delete my drawing from the layers.
Have a nice day!
Hey, your last char looks awesome, you can easely tell what kind of a persone he is, and qua painting style, I must say Jens his workshop helped us all improve
btw you should paint more often chars with faces, I see a lot of maks/helmets but I think faces are more intresting to see.
Your work is absolutely great, are these all you do or are you only posting school related stuff lately? Anyway here's some comments:
-I don't like the anatomy on the left arm of that superhero dude and with that tight a suit I suppose the overal image could show a liiitle more body hills.
- your old painting technique (3 colors or so for the skin of the pokemon ts ts ts ^^)
-You should work a bit more on faces, your characters would come off really great with just that extra hint of realism
-Your new painting technique!! I really can't express what an improvement it is.
-The monkey on the stick with your tribespeople, I adore it
-Almost all of your life drawings are superb, are those women on the first page from ref also?(and how long did it took you then compared to now?) But I absolutely LOVE the one above the bottom right one in that last bunch. I kept staring at it for 5 min.
Now I really understand what you mean by contrast and highlighting the right areas, thanks.
-you got your own style and you stick to it!
So all in all this is great stuff, but do more! (or post more?)
Yo, I just looked through your whole sketchbook.....and...I..have to say that it is really impressive. I think your imagination is huge considering all of the space ship designs ("2 Planches/ Pages_ worked out" being my favorite) and I really enjoyed your big fat guy, the second to last image on the first page. I can see the HUGE progress you made since your first post, so keep up the good work and I could go on and on with favorites. That last sentence sounded like I was finished, but i'm not. I just visited your website and seen what you have done with your life, and with me still being in high school you truly have been an inspiration.

a real improvement! great work!
although, according to my memories of your lessons, I still think you have a lot more and better to show than you post here!
You got some nice ideas and characters in your SB! Try to save the lines when you change to digital sketches. The pencil sketches look more defined even without colour.
Hi everyone out there...
Here are some of my new digital paintings from the life drawing classes. You cannot imagine how funny it looks; me sitting behind my mac and tablet, surrounded by oldies and their charcoal-drawings in class
Soros; thx. But I try to loose the lines when painting. I'll keep them in drawings.
Kjell. thx for dropping by. Indeed, not all my stuff is listed here. It's a sketchbook after all

I am missing those drawing classes. Was a lot of fun and frustration.

Any chance a colour version is coming up?
4 variations of my portrait.
Myself - in some way-, a funny one, creepy one and me as an old man.
