Brentos - thanks man! Will definetely do that!
So today at school I forgot my pencil drawing stuff , so I just had a ballpoint pen.Never did stuff with that and it was really fun!Too bad I had only paper with lines though...
this is the only thing worth posting so
Some hands to worm up when I came home
And my first creature design! I should definetely do more of these!!
Hey Othrandir! Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook a week or two ago!
You have some really nice stuff in here. I can see a lot of improvement! Especially recently. You're on a really good path doing all of that anatomy work. Keep it up!
Aaaand I REALLY want that cup of coffee from the previous page! :p
Crazy Pills - Hey, thanks man! And thank you for coming by too Yeaah , I know it looks sooo good!
Ok , so here's for the past couple of days.Too bad , no sketchbook pages from imagination , though I really must do those , I think it's important.
Some hands - some from reference some from imagination
Quick 30 sec figures - sorry for the qualiti , apparently the paper is a bit transparent so you can see the bottom part of the scanner and the levels are craazy
figure studies,lots of them - I learned soo much from those crazy angles , I really recommend doing studies from parkour photos!
Two quick 45 mins environments from ref
A really loose and bad selfportrait , my hair actually does look like that! haha I had long hair for long time and since I cut it off , my hair's been growing super weird
did another creature - turned out even worse than the previous one! hahaI love doing them though , I can really let myself go , since I'm making them up!
Probably will post again tonight , so c ya!
Man, you're working hard. It's a pleasure to look at your sketchbook. =D
...and you're combining all this with school ? Nice job !
Look, I updated my signature!
- Thanks Hedera!
So , it's been a suuuper lazy week for me!Here's all I did.It's not much , but I learned a lot from it so I'm not That unhappy with my productivity this week.It's all about learning , right?
sketchbook stuff , mostly studies....grrr I gotta do more stuff from head
A speedpaint from tonight ( 2-3 hrs ) - > a little jungle mix for the jungle paint ^^
and a personal piece - "Ethereal deception" ( around 6-7 hrs)
Great work here! Since you started studying loomis you're head construction has gotten massively better, and I like all of the studies and environment paintings you're doing. Keep it up and you'll just get better and better!
art is never finished, only abandoned~Leonardo da Vinci
ezekrialase - Thanks,man!I certainly hope so!
Ok , so here's some stuff -
I started a piece , thinking more of composition and after two days , here is where I was at:
And today I for 2-3 hrs I got it up to here :
An enviro study 40-50 mins
and a 1 hour speedpainting competition with Joho - > sketchbook
He totally kicked my ass I WILL HAVE MY REVENGE!!
sorry , no pencil stuff
So I did some more stuff on the competition environment , for about 10 mins.I was simply too frustrated with my end result , so I just had to touch some stuff up.I still don't like it , but I don't think I ever will
and some pencil shits : sketches , dragon studies , shoulder and hand anatomy practice
Here's today's environment thingy with me and Joho - sketchbook
The topic was "Mordor" I really wish we had more time than 1 hr.
and here is his environment from yesterday ( I forgot to post it)
Joho - Hey!Thanks for stopping by again also thanks for the tip about the arm.You were so right I suggest we do 2 speedpaints today , since we missed the one last night(again , I'm sorry)
Okay , so here's to what point I got the character.I'm not going to do more on him , because I'm lazy and I want to do other stuff, like studies and environments!!
quick studies , I decided to learn and not do everything like a machine.I tried doing the studies with no sketch beforehand , only with colors while really thinking about them.
So today was a really cool day!I got up like 8h , I walked the dog and I started drawing.I listened to Bobby Chiu podcasts and I discovered Alex Pascenko!! I mean , I knew his name but never his super duper amazing pencil and painting skillz!!! What the hell is this guy's brain made of??Soo cool...so yeah , I looked at his stuff and I just saw just how much my anatomy sucks,So I did more studies.Damn , I'm lazy , I have to do more , but oh well , that's it for now.I really want to learn light and color.Something I'm really not good at , so I did some fast environment studies ( 10-15 mins each? )really focusing on that.Looks like I suck at that too I have to do more. You don't get better with just words though so here's some of yesterday's and today's stuff!
10-15 mins environments from photos
two fast portraits - 20,30 mins probably
a 50 min extremely crappy doodle, I need to get better at imaginative stuff
some hands from posemaniacs and life
30 secs poses , sorry they're that big , but I don't have time to go to photoshop right now and make them small and stack them
some arms from life and mind
and sketchbook pageeeeeesss faces are from mostly from mind , Only the girl with the weird mouth placement is from a photo
I did some legs from mind while waiting for the scanner
cheers guys , gotta go!

Crappy post today , so enjoy!!
Here's some legs
Hands from life
and some crappy faces , damn my anatomy sucks so much.I need to stop being so goddamn lazy...
Here's a quick doodle from this morning.Pretty much everything about the face is off.I can't even look at it.I have to do loads more of these.It turned out that painting is quite more different than drawing.Who knew ?!
I was trying to experiment with light and color , but I still can't achieve a strong atmosphere , and that's soo important in a painting
blah...that's it , I've got some studies on the side but they're not worth showing.This post was too little , I need to up my game and draw more!
From yesterday ( I'll try to update every morning)
The good think is that it's getting a bit easier for me to imagine different poses that are not standart
The bad thing is that my anatomy (above all) and everything else still sucks Gotta keep working
Yesterday was such a crazy day , so this is all I could squeeze out
Here's some hands to warm up .
Sketchbook pages all from mind...blaah my imaginative work sucks so much.What should I do ? More stuff from mind , more studies??Guess I'll try to do both 'till I see progress
A 1 hour thing again , trying to focus on lighting and color
I really want to understand how it should work!Until then - practice
heads ( the first and last are from mind )
sketchbook pages - from mind
some quick environment from tonight - 1 hr and 30 mins probably ( too slow : ( )
random doodle from head again
blaaah...school sucks... blaaah
Thanks a lot for coming by my SB. You seem to be working hard and tackling the hard things (environments etc). Something I would suggest to you is that you would take a bit more careful measurements in the future. I think for example the faces would improve a huge deal if you just took the time to measure.
Anyway great job with this SB.
Btw. I'm really sorry for the dude in the upper right corner.
Mikko Voipio - Yeah , no prob man , I'm sure I'll be visiting it soon again You're right about the measurement thing.I am trying to get used t the face proportions.I need to do more , so I can get the hang of it and I need to really think and not just do.
haha yeah , truly unfortunate for him , but he deserved it ( He slept with my gf )
Ok I was really lazy the last few days and that's why I didn't upload ( not that anybody cares ) I don't feel bad though , because I read a lot of stuff and I learned a lot. For the next week I have to study a lot for school , but I hope that I will be able to draw a good amount a day.So yeaaaah...my life...whatever...blah blah...now for some "artsy" shits ^^
oh btw , I bought myself an awesome A3 format sketchbook and I love it, I've never had so much ROOM!!!I love it , the only bad thing is that my scanner isn't big enough so I'll post camera pics.It looks like it doesn't change the quality THAT much so it'll be ok ^^
Some hands from life ( I really need to get myself a smaller portable mirror, It's so uncomortable with a big one )
some heads , they're all from mind ( about 100 I think)
When I was adjusting the contrast something fucked up the quality...sorry...I don't feel like doing it again
nothing digital though I'll draw more bad stuff and I'll post them so you can laugh ^^
Great to see you doing lots of studies, the hands are looking good!
Keep working hard!
Just dropping some good vibes with John Butler's Awesome music!
P.S. I have no idea how to embed the video.I'll see what I can do when I get back home

My scanner doesn't work , so photos are going to be used instead... sorry for the bad lighting.I just took them and it's artificial light , since it's night
crappy sketchbook page...no imagination AT ALL...I dunno what's happening
some more hands - On the one I tried a more refined rendering ( you probably can't see it that well because of the pic quality). Haven't really done one of those , but it was really fun and I will definitely do more of those.I actually kinda like the one! weird...I must be getting soft
