Keep the good work man! I see a huge improvement! Watch out for the proportions (they are deadly enemy for each of us)
P.S. - hope you have recieved my message!
hey mate, whazap? updaaaateeee!!
lol, ermn, hur gammal är du btw? o var i svergie befinner du dej?
Lotet thanks man, appreciate it! I do have a hard time transfering my flow from sketching to actual rendering.. My teacher told me to think as if I was sketching with paint.. will have to try - p.s är 18 och bor i skåne. cheers.
Lilou thank you thanks for the info - Hogarth is good, might buy one.
Buckster allways nice to see you around here, thanks. I've put the piece aside for the time being, since I suck at drawing girls, and faces in particular. I'm doing lots of studies atm, which all suck so wonät post any - yet. I'm definitely planning on finnishing it. cheers!
EricElwell thanks for the tip! I'll definitely try doing that from now on.
Clanlord hey man, thanks! yep got the message - however I don't know how to find your sb
Seriously.. didn't expect all of you here - great ... I'm sorry I don't have anything good to present.. some quick sketches will do. I'll compensate with stuff as soon as possible. Thanks everyone.
*edit* damnit page 4 ?!

I like the skulls in the first page and the last page a lot!!!
You don't like drawing girls (specially faces)? hehe, thats funny cos thats exactly what I enjoy drawing most... and in return I suck at drawing creatures... strange world that is
sorry, again nothing constructive to say...next time, k?
lilou thanks .. correction. I love drawing girls, there's nothing better than drawing a.. hrm.. hot chick. Problem is, I suck at it. But I'm doing many studies of how to draw them haha.. might post some life studies soon.
Thought I'd try to update a bit more often.. but that probably won't last. I can add that I'm starting to find a flow now.. Speedsketch here. kinda.. 40 minutes yesterday re-designing my old lizard-warrior, and another 40 minutes today doing armor - part of the Dark Side over at the Artcrusade
*edit* adding the sketch of the final piece, the actual art crusade battle between my dark lizard and the elemental leviathan.

I really like the armor of your lizard-warrior, it looks extreamly cool!!! and the last skecth looks very dynamic, maybe you could work it out more?
may I ask you where you get your inspiration for your creatures? I might try to get into this subject too... out of my comfort zone, you know...
Man Made God thanks!
lilou inspiration comes from everywhere. Kinda random. The leviathan came from a dream I had that same morning.. creatures, dunno - only tip would be don't think too much about it - just imagine.
RandAlThor thanks, I'll try more different lighting too.
I have a cold, a bad one. I tried to draw today but couldn't do anything.. it's gonna be dead here for a while so, til next time, bye.
niiiiice som FAN! love the new styff, the "sketchin with paint" seems to work well for ya, i love it, serriusly, its looking great. o vafan gör du i skåne lol, gåru nån estet skola där btw?
awwww! thats bad news.... gonna miss ya Murli, but be sure to get well soon!!
no probs man! you will see, you'll have nice fresh ideas when you start again!
thanks for the tipp, I'll try to develop my imagination, still its hard for me to think out of the box and not relay on things I'm surrounded by... I'm still too much used to humanoid form so its kinda hard for me to compleatly ignore it when it comes to creatures... so I hope studying animals will help it a bit...
however, get well soon, and make me happy by creating some new stuff of yours *kiss kiss* bye
Man Made God not lots.... heh thanks.
Dannelf- thanks man! need to get myself something darker than HB then
Lotet - thanks, working more with this "sketch paint thingy" .. yup går estetiskt.. kan dock inte säga att det hjälper mig ett dugg. Det enda positiva med det är att vi har så lite vanlig skola, så jag hinner lägga mycket tid på att rita under fritiden.
Lilou - Thanks Diana, I hope I'll live up to your expectations these following days
Hey people.. I'm better now, created some art.
First off.. 2 daily sketches, "Electric" and "Vampire Goddesss blablabla rises from water"
Then some coloring of previous creature concepts.. some moleskine action.. "WTF" and
4 x-tremeley sexy self portraits that really look like me.. (Yes I am gray and really hot in real life!)
Hopefully more to come during this week.. I feel creative.
I totally agree with algenpfleger!!! he knows what he is saying!!
high expectaions come from high levels, so no worries! just keep on doing what you do, and it'll be just fine
*and you look really cute in those selfportraits* *sorry I'm not being professional *
good going here man, I don't stop by here enough ^^
I really enjoy the pencils sketches, great and fluent lines.
I think that I will start with some portraits myself, maybe you could get my gear in action.
Keep it up with the studies mate, you are really improving.
Algenpfleger - thanks man! allways nice to hear from you, and especially about the elfportraits - I was inspired by you.. but I'm not as serious about it, yet.. damnit slacked off
Lilou - haha, made me smile here, a cookie for you.
Hygami - Thanks man!
Buckster allways nice to see you here means a lot. thanks!
Izu- tjena! thanks, I hear that a lot
some late updates.. sry. I still get very hard values when I work in gray - which sucks.
I like your style, and your creatures are very unique. The anatomical studies look good too.
Freelance/general inquiries @: Natzuur@gmail.com
nice man, great sketches, I cant wait to see were you go, it seems you're constantly improving, keep drawing and see ya around
"If you ever give your best... well give it better"-Maniac...
wow I love the anatomy studies!!! and the last wip! you work so hard, I'm really impressed!
sorry, haven't been arround lately got a new joboffer for a daily job (8-9 hours a day)... and it kills me, its so timeconsuming, and there is still my master thesis I have to work on when I come home... at the end of all this I'm in off mode, all I want then is sleep and letting my brain rest while watching a movie... I'm not sure if it was right to take the job... haven't got time for nothing, not even a single sketch!!!! and all the time I'm feeling bad because of this...
today is my first day off and the first thing I do is commenting on your sb
sorry for all the self-pity, I'm not like this usually I just need to do some art and I'll be the old one again
till then, cheers Murli !!! *hug*
hey there again mate, I like seeing you doing more studies they are helping you a lot.
last piece is looking good, you've maintained parts of the spontaneous feeling of the original sketch, well done.
now make sure that you think your colours through and remain focused on what you want to achieve doing this piece.
Keep up the splendid work.
Dannelf - thanks alot man. The studies are from real life actually once a week I go and do a 3hour course with nude model - it's great practice. As for tutorials.. I don't really know. What exactly is it you want to know? I'll try to help.
Natzuur-JR - thanks man glad to hear
Localfatheaded - thanks a bunch! great to hear, since I myself don't feel much improvement hehe. See ya around and thanks for the encouragement.
Lilou - Hi Diana, I can't really say I work hard.. more like.. slacking hard! That's good news I guess, about the job? I mean, you get a steady income and all.. but sad to hear about the art Best of luck with the new job.. and I'm honored - visiting me first thing yaey.. you can come and have some self-pity anytime.. but from now on I'll have to charge. I can't have you hanging on my shoulder for free ya know..
hope to see some updates from you soon, til then.
Man Made God - thanks! Ill try to have some more sexy work with next update
Buckster - Thank you very much, and for giving some feedback - really needed. I think what I'm doing a bit wrong is that I don't think when I start a piece, I just start scribbling and painting. And then when I got something, I havn't given a thought to color and thats when I get stuck, like with this one. I got stuck with the colours, so I just gave it a warm tone and added some fire.. shame on me.
thanks mate, appreciate it.
Only paper-work today.. too tired to work - I should get a hold of myself. Missed half of this weeks life-drawing due to train delay.. really sucky.
I'm happy the weather was good enough for me to go out and draw some birds.. I suggest you try it once, I've not had so much fun and felt so relaxed in a long time. It really makes you think on how to depict it in an instant.. drawing moving geese isn't easy.
Thanks for sropping by and feeding me with fresh critts, man! You know I appreciate it!
3 hours a week with nude models? Estetlinjen låter inte så illa!
The studies looks real thight! And great that you're having fun drawing the birds. You've really caught it's character!
Kör på ffs!
About the tutorials; never mind! I find it a good way to gain motivation!
Dannelf - hehe det är en kurs utanför skolan, eget initiativ estet linjen är inte så illa.. jag har fria händer att göra vad jag vill ungefär. Det tråkiga är bara att alla inte är lika ambitiösa.
Thanks man, about the birds, try reading them as a manga, from right to left. I'm left handed so I drew the pages starting from right.
Couldn't fall asleep.. Havn't touched the pad in 2 days... just don't have it these days. Anyhow.. some speedies, spontanious.. 10-15 minutes each
