F*** it... The end of this self portrait..I don't feel like pushing it any further.
15 minutes portrait.. He would have knocked me out for ruining it..
thanks p sage! I liked the idea of einstein on the beach myself but don't like the colors..here is something i'm doing from imagination..lol..I have no idea how i'm going to color this one
Finally starting to get used to painting in photoshop and it's possibilities.
From now on I'm posting 1 page of quick warm up poses a day, done digital due to lack of a scanner, as a journal. this here being the absolute minimum

quick ones day 2.
.. definitely a weak point
ok this is getting awfully random..well maybe I'm getting hungry.
place(s) I live(d), upper right being the present.
This time from imagination since a long time.
Cool style you got there! I really like cliff piece in #61 and the moviestill in #63. Keep drawing and draw some stuff from life, it gives so much!
And no, I got no amputee fetish, I was just focusing on the torso and pelvis in those sketches. No limbs.
Lol I knew you didn't have one ..
Thanks a bunch man! Indeed drawing from life really helped me last few months. I'll sure continue doing so!
Note to self: Next time actually look at the thing first.
quick poses day 3, but woke up to late so I don't feel like drawing much today.
Your sketch book has a lot of interesting stuff even in te first part, where as you put it you didn't cared to develop anithing, I think that there the drawing is very spontaneous and that you have found some good ideas there.
In the #50 post I've noticed that you have some problem with anatomy but not with the gesture drawing so a little bit of study of anatomy like you are alredy doing and you will be fine
*Rena* : thanks, Yes I guess I was coming up with a lot of random ideas back then! And I sure need more practice on anatomy, how muscles are connected to eachother and proportion.. I've been doing a lot in my sketchbook lately but will upload it when I get the chance again!
ConnyNordlund: I guess Marko looks like Al! but uhm who Marko?

One of the first things I noticed was how much black you used in your studies.
way too much! don't just do light&dark. Try to use like 20 value for dark areas and blend it out properly to some mid-range value and blend that out to like a 80. You can always add contrast later but adding mid-range values does not really work.
Hope that helps
Koh: thank you dude!
Xelar:Yes that's really useful, I will try it out in my next one!
poses of today took a bit longer than usual
