omg i love the one with the guy and the catfish underwater creature it's haunting! i'm blown away by how good of a sense of color you have man! are there any excercises you or books you recommend on getting better at color?
check out my : SKETCHBOOK: All critiques much needed and WELCOMED!
Lakka: Thank you! I was really just scribbling with that one. I guess it's kinda different from the normal stuff I do.
Gpozzo: Thanks man!
wutangclam: Thank you! I feel like I'm really weak with colour though. I enjoyed James Gurneys books, might wanna give them a shot. Especially Colour and Light.
Didn't unfortunately have too much time for drawing today so I just poked around with the yesterday's scribble. Kinda fun though it's not really at a finished state.
Sorry! Only one piece for today. I'll try to do some studies tomorrow.
wow that last piece is sick! Proper twisted mesmerizing shit! haha.
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
NyeAlexandaFrayne: Thank you!
kasblue: Thanks man! Just messing around :
Quick studies. I should try to focus more on oils I feel like, I always get the feeling I learn a lot more than with digitals.
Very immersive stuff. I know its a gross oversimplification to just term it like that, but a lot of your work has a nice sort of palpable quality. Good ambiance. Environments and landscapes are something I really want to approach more seriously, so kinda seeing how you've handled things is a great change of perspective. The studies have clearly paid off in those latest pieces from imagination. Really, inspiring work.
Wretched: Thanks a lot! Glad you enjoyed them
Mila: Thanks man! I'll try to keep that one updated as well
Philipp Scherer: Thank you! You got some beautiful stuff yourself. Loving how clean you can get things. I just mess around..
Haven't got much but figured I'd just scrape together a small update. Some really crude stuff (Well, it's called a sketchbook, after all.)
You know that feeling when self-portraits are so f-ing hard and always look like crap? No? Just me then. Atleast they're fun!
BenjaminJL92: Haha thanks man! The enviroment piece is something like reaaaaaaaally quick that I've done before that I just dug up so that I would have something to post.
Satu: Thanks a lot! I'll try to keep it updated as well. It'll mostly be the same stuff though, I'm afraid.
kasblue: Many thanks!
Mila: Thanks! Freaking self portraits, the hardest shit I know. If you've found even one inspiring piece then I must keep going!
I really should pick up the pace again...
Going away for the weekend, probably can't update much.
Heres some stuff. Quick masterstudy and some creatures based on animal faces; alot of fun. I'm having hard time making designs out of nothing as I haven't studied that many creatures and animals and this makes it a little easier. And it's actually not that obvious which animals I was looking upon drawing the heads. They pretty much suck but still, kinda like the bottom right one.

AnnaHollinrake: Thank you! Yeah everything looks okay when they're studies.. hah. I wish even 10% of that carried over.
Back again! Did some oil painting plein airs during the weekend - we got the first snow of the year. Man did they suck.
NickyBeats: Thanks man!
kischi: Thank you! I'm so bad with colour and composition though - among other things.
One more before bed.
Dude your sketchbook is amazing. I am very jealous. Looking forward to some more.
Hey there Kvenh, I agree with all the others that your sketchbook is awesome killer updates as well lately. You claim not to know much about color, but the last few things you posted with color are working REALLY well. The blues in that rock/snakebridge thing are smexy. Keep it up man!
AdamDilley: Thank you, and don't be! I still have such a long way to go.
ceddo: Thank you! Can't take credit for the blue piece, I did some messing around with some photographs with layer modes to get to those colours - something I rarely do.
Gpozzo: Thanks man! Just trying to imitate the original works. Can't do that on my own pieces haha.
