Alm0st: Yup, thatīs a ninja turtle Well some are stylized, for example the last one done with a pen and the one made in markers. The charcoals are realistically approached. Charcoal was very hard and there are many mistakes in the self portraits, but I will keep practicing.
Yeah, I used a piece of charcoal.
Today we made comics/storyboards. In the first one we were supposed to pick a film, and illustrate the story in 16 images.
In the second one we were given a story, mine was: "child watches tv, tv falls on him".
We also painted today and I will take a photo of that tomarrow.
cool storyboards yo, gatta respect Jurassic Park man. I spot purple nipples!
The monkey image and the painting were done maybe 1,5 month ago, the hands are from today. Not much else done. We have been working more with graphics this week and I will scan them tomarrow.
really like your painted stuff and graphics. wild guess, acrylics?
anyways added you to my buddylist if you don't mind.
We had life drawing and I tried out charcoal. There was no light other than from the candles. We especially worked with values.
The skulls are for a graphic work iīm doing this week.
Also some Bridgman studies, a self portrait and posemaniacs.
We painted today. Some strange colors in the stomach area, it sort of got better (the arm) towards the end. I kind of realised I could get a pretty nice skin color by mixing red, blue, yellow and white and adding more of one of them depending on if I wanted the color warmer or cooler.
I also did a quick pen sketch, havenīt had time for anything else today.
Niceeee stuff posted. love the study of the landscape, hatching is always a plus for me.
On another note, I really hope to see some more work from you where its more refined/more time spent/more finished?
Alm0st: Thanks! Yeah the hatching was fun, probably going to try another one soon. Yep you are right, I really need to practise doing finished drawings/paintings and not just sketches, iīm definantly going to do that.
The skulls I was working on last week. I also added my sketch in PS and the forms (maybe not the right word) that I used. Also some mindless sketching.
Sublimus: Thank you very much man!
Model painting from yesterday, some posemaniac, characters, an environment and a self portrait.

Stefefef: Ha ha! Thanks for the kind words.
crabbyclem: Thank you. Yeah, maybe a future project
Some Bridgman and hand studies, poses and sketching, self-portraits (acrylics, markers and charcoal), gun concepts, characters and DSG entry.
hey, i like your life drawings and your take at painting them as well.
as for your skethes, i see what you mean by what you wrote in my SB your lines are so unlike mine...
maybe you should try constructing your heads/selfpotraits? I dont know if you do- cant see any construction lines there.
but anyways, nice variety of stuff in here, keep it up mate!
KingElvis: Thank you! Yeah we have different styles and as I wrote in your sketchbook, I definantly understand your way of doing it. Yeah you are right, I usually donīt do construction lines for my self portraits. Especially the ones done in markers and ink, I work pretty fast on these ones and I want them clean. I also like how they sometimes gets deformed and that they donīt look like me to a hundred percent. My main goal isnīt to make them look like me as much as possible.
But you are right, construction lines are very helpful and on for example the
acrylic and digital one, I did construction lines because in those ones I really
wanted to obtain as much likeliness as possible as well as getting the colors and values right.
Iīve added the sketch I did on the digital piece before painting it. For the
acrylic one I donīt have it as I painted on top of it without documenting the
For the beach I used reference.
Great, loose style. Good to see that you're also doing lots of constructive studies to back that up. I see improvement in the volume of the figure drawings, so keep pushing that. They're becoming much fuller forms, more 3D, and that looks great. I think you might like Peter Hannan, the guy who made Catdog. Your cartoons reminded me of his sketchbook section. Maybe Egon Schiele too.
eminkey2003: Thanks for the comments man.
Yeah I try to do a lot of studies. Iīm glad you see improvement, feels nice I will keep pushing it. I really like those Peter Hannan cartoons, thanks for the inspiration. The eyeball man going down the hill is great
Not much done today, iīm a bit tired. Weīre sculpting during school hours.
man youre really persistent on those bridgman drapery studies and they look really good! what are you studying, if I may ask?
mmm you study hard my friend...can't wait for more of your funky doodles!
KingElvis: Thanks man! I study a one year art education that focuses on teaching you the fundamentals. We try many different techniques and ways to work. Itīs preparatory for higher education. There is also a second year.
Alm0st: I try, I often feel that iīm not doing enough. Should be drawing all the time but often iīm tired or just browsing the Internet and doing other stuff. But I try The doodles are for you
No model drawing today as the model was sick but we are painting tomarrow. Iīm done with Bridgmans "drawing the draped figure" so itīs on to the next one "the book of a hundred hands".

I like a lot of your bizarre little doodles. It would be neat to see some of them as base sketches for practice paintings or maquettes. Have you ever tried using Super Sculpey (especially mixed with black and white regular Sculpey)?
The hand studies have some really full form in them, but I think that these eyes lack that. Some more line variation and tapering would add volume.
Mumph, I love your loose style. You have loose and confident lines, which are a huge asset to your work. I would, however, like to some some more carefully constructed works to contract all the fun and loose doodles.
This figure painting/drawing is really great.
