Skulls! Those are great, they have a great 3D feeling. Just keep on practicing, it will be worth the while! oh, I got inspired now, I think I have to do some too
keep it up, I would love to see more!
Studies! Top notch. You make me wanna sketch...but I don't have a damn reference book. I guess I'll return to life studies....Grrr!
wow, last update is wonderful. the skull is well rendered, the planes on it are clear. you understand the structure well. acturally i always have something vague of the structure, i'll go get a mold so i can draw it from 3d in various angles. keep up the good ones Ulver.
Awesome studies Ulver, I really like your rendering style. Now you got me inspired, I got to go draw! Keep it up.
Edit: Oh yeah, thanks for giving my SB a visit.
Those studies look great mate. The bottom jaws in some are looking a tad long - dunno. But every time I get here I'm more impressed, seriously. Keep up the good hard work and you'll go great places!
thanx for the support!
Oi! You! Get your arse on The SoFA!

You have a very methodical way of working and it clearly pays off. You rendering is also improving. Keep on going.
Bartovan - thank you for visit! I`ll try to keep it methodical, think it`s the only way to learn something
Was not sure of posting this, but it`s the first drawing of a man from life here so I post this crap My brother was too sleepy and agreed to sit still only for 10 minutes, and I didn`t have a time to draw his hands and legs So I did a quick 10 min sketch and later rendered it a little. Think I`ll leave it unfinished.
hi, iam here again .
Glad you posted your brother. it's just a nice sketch. just see it like a learning prosses. you made a sketch. and you renderd it later. to let it even look beter!. it's not easy to draw someone from live. it's a good attempt, if he just had sitten some time longer it even looked better. so it's a nice 10 min sketch .
and btw. > i really like that photo ref!
Wow, nice skulls! I think I will have to try those too . Keep going!
oma - Thanx!!! Today I got more time and made another portrait of him
Meatsworthy - Thank you for stopping by again!
Today`s for drawings from life. First - quick sketches of my cast. I tried to work fast as I can. Second - portrait of my bro:
i was just wondering when you where gonna make a update again. So iam pleased to see another update
love the cast study. and that portrait of your bro looks cool.
i always have problems wit doing the eye's at that angle.
what paper format are you using?
wow, more skulls, sure make me very happy. And oh, I see you've put the skull structure into portraits now which makes the head very believable. Nice one. Although the pose is a bit stiff. Maybe try varying angles? Keep up the good works bro.
Cool that you're doing real life drawings, I want to do that to. Are those skulls from life as well?
And now you got me to draw skulls...
the referenced stuff looks excellent (esp the athletics/anatomy ones, those are wicked)
u have a pretty good style forming in the no-ref area, a bit on the cartoony style
dont be afraid to let it loose more
Thank you very much for all replies!
oma- Glad that you like it, man! Answering your question - all pages are A4 format. It`s easy to scan, and not so many place to render
isair - Thanx!! Yes, I`m trying to use that structure Glad that you think it makes these drawings look better!
Olle Werme - Thank you! Yes, that skulls are from life Life drawings are still a very tricky thing for me to do, but anyway it`s fun. Thanx for stopping by again!
Cigaro - Thank you for kind words! I`ll try to do more stuff the way you suggest, anyway I try to achieve more realism in my drawings. Always appreciated!
So, here`s two more pages of skullllsss from life and one photoref portrait
Fooling around with a contrast
cool skulls. realy love them.
one crit on the photo ref.
i think the eye's pop out to much, but it could be me.
just take a look at it. if you happy with it, 'leave it'. because it's allready looking great!
Your work from reference is very strong, the studies look good too.
I'd love to see some faces with stronger expressions though (bigger smiles, laughing, mad...).
Keep it up!
Wow, nice, very good shading and I love your refs, work on the women's faces a bit more, sometimes your lips are overwhelming the rest of the face or don't look exactly in place...at least I think that's it! Haha!
hmm nice pencil work man. I like this one
Nice ref...eyes do pop out a bit but it makes 'Santa' look deranged
Your copies are pretty accurate. You must have some talent!
But really, you need to stop drawing pictures of naked people. Everyone is deeply offended by those images, I'm sure.
Keep it up Ulver, the quick cast drawings of your skull are cool. Try and do a different view of your brother when he's not paying attention .
Oh, been meaning to ask, your avatar... is that the guy in the 13th warrior?
Goodbye > The studies don't stop at removing clothes, but flesh as well in order to build an understanding of the human form. It's just part of the learning process, no offense is intended.
Wow, so many comments thanx guys!!!
oma - glad that you like it! Thanks for crits about photoref, you right about pop eye, so I just removed some tones and now it looks much better!
entroid - thanx for dropping by! I`ll post some faces with the expressions soon. Firstly I need to deal with facial muscles, and later work with the expressions will be easier. However expressions will come soon
n1va - Thank you! You right, I need to work more on it. Women`s faces are much more difficult to draw than men`s, hope I can do it better someday.
rblitz7 - Thanx, man! I like this one too
Saikin - Hehe I didn`t want to make him look deranged, but afraid that you right about it Anyway now eyes are fixed and he`s looking not so deranged
Goodbye - Thanx for kind words, man! I don`t know about talent, but think that only hard work on drawings can help to become better. About your suggestion not to draw human body - please read Meatsworthy post - I totally agree with him. I respect your opinion but have to say that I`ll continue to do these studies because this is what I`m here for.
Meatsworthy - Thank you very much! Ok, I`ll try to hunt my brother and post the results About avatar - haha, you right, this is that guy exactly
First and second pics are from life. I still fight with a hatching and shadows
3rd pic - studies of facial muscles - preparing for work with the expressions.
4th and 5th are photorefs. The last one is dirty a little and I`m not satisfied with it, but I post it here for you to crit:

Awesome update. I love that forth pic Ulver, really tight rendering. Nice depth in the first as well. Keep up the life drawings .
As for crits: The ear on the second pic - although I can tell you didn't intend to push any details there (and you don't have too) - looks really flat, not the same depth as the rest of the head. I also think you could give some more thickness to the eyelids, they seem a little bit thin. The hand in the last one looks a bit wierd as well but I can't really tell what's wrong, I suck at hands, sorry xD.

Great update again.
how long are you working on these drawings.
i agree with olle from the crit section
that fourth picture looks realy neat and clean. thats why it's rocks so hard.
Hope to see more of you verry soon!
Damn I missed a lot here. The Prof. looks great. The skull form is solid. Damn the shading is awesome. Contrast makes things really good. But the last girl is way to skully to me.
Thank you very much for feedback, guys!!!
Olle - I agree about ear, but my mold has only "something looks like an ear" and not an ear actually - so it`s difficult to draw it right, but I`ll try The hand in the last one is terrible, I know that - I don`t like this drawing at all, but I spend too much time on it and decided to post this shit just for motivating myself to draw better
oma - sorry man, but I havn`t much time to draw now, hope it will change soon. I like that pic a lot too , thanx
isair - the last girl is too Ugly for me too!! I have to practice more on women`s faces, thought. Glad, that you like the shading!
just one pic for today - studying MUSCLES ref:
that one looks awesome, what books are you using for the study's ?
That's just awesome, particulary the eye, no crits from me.
Keep it up.
