Sketchbook: Philip's Sketches
Hi there, my name is Philip Olsson and currently I'm studying traditional art full-time. In the future I want to work as a concept artist or Illustrator.
If you got any critique, please donít hesitate! After all, thatís why we start these threads in the first place.

Here's some sketches from a school project. The task that I have choose is to sketch up three different environments and then turn each environment into a oil painting.
Bonus: just a study I did of a animal cranium.
Looking good with studies
keep it up!
Yey thanks, I sure will. Have one year left at my current school so I kinda have to ^^
Here's a quick update on my minotaur painting:
So this is one of the paintings for my school project. As you can see it is just a sketch at the moment, so next time I touch it I will start to paint with oil.
I'm kind of going for the feeling of a abandoned train station. This might not appear in the sketch, but hopefully I will be able to give it that feeling as I start to paint.
Todays update on the minotaur painting:
Here's some life drawing stuff. Think I had 2 minutes on all of them.
Your enviros are really ambitious, I like it!
The life drawings look good too. Keep studying.
Thanks mate, I will
Here's a bunch of life drawings. Some of them are from today's class, and some of them are from last week's lesson.
Added colors and some details in the armor and background. Time to call this one finish.
Some quick courier designs. Going to bring one of them into a illustration.

Some environment sketches for a school project. Nothing fancy, just wanted to try some different approaches.
WiP! The courier leaves the peaceful village to begin hes important journey.
nice drawing man keep studying!
WiP: Started with the oils on my train station painting today.
WIP: Todayís work on my courier illustration.
(Would love some critique on this one before i continue)
Getting closer to a finnish, will probably start with colors next time I work on this piece.
Don't know if I'm to happy with the result, but at least I learned a thing or two by struggling it through.
From today's life drawing
As you might see I'm not to comfortable with water colors... anyway, the assignment for those, was to explore the different color values that appears in different times on the day. I chose to try out morning and night.
And here's a quick update on my train station in oils. Still struggling a lot with it, but at least I'm having great fun doing it!
Another school project. The theme we got for this one was ”ugly”, so my idea was to paint a typical beautiful women, but with her “ugly side” exposed.
Note that this is a work in progress!
WIP: Here's a quick update on the soul weaver.
I kind of feeling that I should have played more with round and flat forms, since now it is just all flat. But what the heck, lets do that next time!
We have life-painting the entire week in school, so this is some pictures of my progress with that painting.
Also here's a quick update on my train station painting. I'm rather pleased with how far I have come with this. Though I think I have to put it to rest for a while now, since I have two more paintings to do for this project.
(By the way, I'm using oils for both of those paintings).
nice till now man i like the the figures.We also at school had an art project with uglinness as the theme,i too painted a woman
cheers m8 post more.
Dimi – Thank you bro. Haha what a coincidence ^^
Here's the result of this weeks life painting. I learned a lot on it, and looking forward to the next one!
(those are painted in oils)
Idw: Soul Weaver finnish
Some sketches for ChoW ďPersonal GremlinĒ.
I tried out both the posses, but I will be working with the one in the right lower corner on the first picture.
2.5 hours of life drawing...
This is how far I have come with my Gremlin. I havenít had the time to work as much as i wished to do on it, so I wont be able to finish it before the deadline. Going to keep working on it anyway though... this was fun!
