You are truly inspiring! I will start a sketchbook too, maybe I can improve as you did.
oh and yes, this is my first post after lurking all this time since I registered.
Fucks sake dude drop me a line when you're in London next and we'll get fucked up and bitch about how untallented we think we are confidence is your issue. Don't worry about what life might be like or will be like, just deal with it day to day. You got some great skills you just need to learn to enjoy it again and stop putting pressure on yourself...
So I spent the whole night doing these sketches. Believe it or not.
Why am I posting it here? To accept my mistakes.
There will be lots of those from now on.
I have less than a year...to learn, well - everything. Crap...
And a "doodle". I know there`s A LOT of things going wrong with it, but...whatever. I enjoyed it, had fun. It counts as well, right? :]
I`ve also been thinking about doing live streams. No idea if my net connection could handle it, but why not give it a go? Would you guys even be interested in seeing me doodle and talk nonsense...?
Ok, lets`s try it - TEST LIVE STREAM in about 10...ish minutes.
Don`t have a mic yet, so I`ll just be doodling and testing if my net connection can handle it. Fingers crossed
Edit - Ok, seems to be working. Live streams for everybody!
Also, daily doodles.

They look fucking great man!
My first perspective study! Well, it would probably look more like a study if I didn`t go nuts with...whatever it is.
I learned that perspective is fun. I never thought I`d say that.
A doodle of a hipster looking guy in a jungle. Yea, I don`t know either.
And a daily character. Would have spent a lot less time on him, but I kept fixing his face. Have to study faces, a LOT! And arms! And anatomy. And design.
Well, at least I can`t say I`ll be bored.
So, I guess I found a way that works for me. I keep myself busy. This way I don`t have time to flip out and feel all sorry for myself. So far - so well.
Some more one point perspective practice and a daily character (redesign of one of my old doodles).
Busy, busy, busy!
Some more crappy doodles...
And an announcement.
It would seem that I got a job.
As in, a concept artist job.
God, I hope I`ll float. And that my shitty skills will do for now. (pun intended, btw )
Stay tuned. And fingers crossed!

you really got some strong characters dude! i especially fell in love with that one:
i hope to see more inspiration and congrats on the job, give your best !
aviable for fulltime and freelance
congrats on the job. i would suggest you to push your colors a bit more, work on color theorie, how to make contrast with not just light and dark but also using more vibrant and dull colors, etc.

@Mateja - Thank you, kind sir! I`m going to need buckets of that "best" stuff, I tell you...ohboi...
@Alex - Thanks! Also, thanks for dropping by this SB! Now I can make another scrawl on my "awesome peoplez who visited my SB trololololol" list.
@Qikalain - Thank you, an yea - you are spot on! Just the other day I started experimenting with adding splotches of color of different saturation but same temperature and value, and I`m starting to notice some things. Definitely must continue experimenting*.

Woah man, seriously nice work. I really like 471 and 463, killer concepts. That hipster jungle is amazing.
Oh, wow...would you look what time it is. Long time, no update. And everything here is so...shiny. And...new. *_______________* Major overhaul, eh?
Well, ok, so...still alive, thank you for asking. Oh, you didn`t ask? Yea, I really don`t care. I just shoved that piece of information right in your face. You can thank me later.
Also - some art. B/c that`s how people roll here. Apparently. Unless you are in the lounge. All bets are off there.
Images! Been doing some enviro designs for work lately and I definitely don`t count that as my forte , but hey. I`ll evetually whip up something. I hope. o__________o
Warm up sketches are probably the only thing I can show you, so..bleh.
And while doing these, I had to make some characters, just to balance things out, so...alchemy doodles
and a monster dude I did 2 days ago. I just felt like rendering. So, I rendered. I had fun. Also, my OCD - completely satisfied. For now...
Have some pencils as well, but those will have to wait a bit more, till I make a bigger batch to upload. And, of course, I expect you to rip it apart. Like, ALL of it. No need to be nice, PC or polite. Right now, you guys are those with better judgement than mine.
Which is not surprising.
I have bad judgement capabilities.
...it`s genetic. I swear.
More to come, hopefully, soon. In the meantime - crit me.
Crit me hard.
I really don't now how to critique them XD Maybe just le last two landscapes need a bit more definition, but that's all...

Sorry to hear about the job man, but yeah, don't give up. All the best for 2013, I look forward to seeing what awesomeness you come up with.
slay dem pixels. yeaaa. slay dem gooood.
you sexy man beast you.
keep your chin up my good old friend. even if it feels like you have no love left in you, or the world must hate you sometimes, just think to yourself, "wait a minute... Nick still loves me!!" and then turn your speakers on full blast and start playing "were not gonna take it!" and if you click your socks together 2 and a half times, i will magically appear in your home somewhere. and i will be dancing. and we shall dance together, as it was written, and they painted, and they were merry, and all was right in the world again.
I would love to see you live streaming.Please, do it!
Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.
Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.
Just a quick heads - up, I now have a Tumblr where I usually dwell. Along with art stuff and live streams I do basically daily, there`s a lot of Skyrim stuff there as well, as modding it has turned out to be quite an enjoyable hobby for me.
Anyways - some stuff from my live streams and just dicking around with a tablet
Oh, and 2 images I did for a previous project they released recently, so I`m allowed to show it now -
I was reading that big text you wrote about you being too hard on yourself and how you keep making excuses for everything to not go ahead and work your ass off. I'm kind of in the same league or was , at least , I discovered that nothing can get you better if you stay and beat yourself to the ground about other's art. It's you who has to make the change and you who has to inspire people who will some day come and have the same projections about art and evolving as we had.
I wish you good luck and your sketchbook is awesome. Keep studying.
Please visit , comment , critique and have a chat with me
More stuff from livestream :3
