Another two... the boy is just a quickie, less then 5 mins.
I definitely got to get up on that 50 heads 50 torsos jam now.
Your figures are looking real nice.
I never thought I'd give a crit, but looking at the cross you put behind our buddy Jesus, I'd like to see you put more time into the props and environments. Now that it's seems like you're hooking up the anatomy's all proper, show me some background settings, a composition and whatnot.
I'd love to see what your style does for some architecture.
-and yeah, I get the majority of my inspiration from CA and the masters, too. Thanks for the reply, and the inspiration.
Max: Thanks Max, awesome that you're giving me some crits, I get too little of those. I see thousands of things I really need to practice but I'm having trouble seing what I need the most. I still haven't studied anything AT ALL about legs, feet, hands, composition, light, drapery, color, painting overall (except for those two gals I posted here), any kind of creatures/animals, environments etc. The list is long and my time is far too short. That's why I need you guys. Thank you Max, I'll see if I can post some evironments.
While at it, I've been thinking of getting myself markers for some time (for environmental work in perticular) but I'm not sure where to get them. My only local art store (which is really just a book store) doens't have any and I don't have a credit card. Any swedes out there who knows of any online store I could check out, or international sites that takes PayPal? I'm just looking for a simple cool/warm greyscale, prismacolor or copic I guess.
Tried doing some gestural stuff from the master paintings, crazy hard.
-...very good sketches are here. Keep more posting... I think those are Will Smith & Martin Lawrence, am i right?... But i'm no doubt about it is right...
Keep more posting & GOOD LUCK MAN...
Here is my: S-K-E-T-C-H-B-O-O-K
/.....if there is someone from AUSTRALIA especially from SYDNEY on this site, then leave a msg for me, and I really want to meet with you & to making a friends-of course if you'd agree it...............please
Can't do anything but echo the lads above me, your linework rocks.
Keep it up, I'd love to see more

torso 25 is very solid Olle. good work. that looks like it's a really good exercise. it's good to see you rockin' some basic shapes before you really get crackin.' keep that up. sorry, i really stress that- so im glad to see that. anyway, good start to this sb of yours. keep at it
Hi Olle! Very nice lines in the last update, really great work! That figures from the master paintings are also look cool and very solid. It would be great to see some pieces from you with more detailed rendering Keep it up!
Ulver: Thanks mate, I'll see if I can get some some more rendered stuff through.
I did THIS (thanks to Max for finding) to get myself more confortable with my tablet. It went ok, it still feels wierd drawing with this thing but I guess it's going in the right direction, I did some quick environment thumbnails.
I like the energy you got going with the pen. I'm looking forward to the rock you bring when you're able to get some prismacolors.
The environment thumbnails are cool. Great sense of depth and nice mini-compositions. Do more!
Max: Thanks mate, gonna do some more soon, hopefully
I did some mini gestures today, was lots of fun.
And another two pages.
are these from a life drawing session? or photo refs?
Hi Max, about 50% are reffed loosly from Kevin Chens figure studies over at characterdesigns.com (love that site), he's quite awesome, probably my favorite figurative artist. Most of the others are from imagination and some (very few) are from random photos.
Sadly, there isn't any life drawing sessions or art schools anywhere close to where I live at the moment so those will have to wait a whole, at least until I finish high school.
All these studies are paying off. Be careful with the Wes Burt-isms http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1156082384 too many people try to swipe his style.
Front view and profile of the skull and head are the most important to learn, all other views are derived from them, most character art is in 1 or 2-point perspective. Looking at your gestures I'll say that every bump on the contour corresponds to some form on the figure, those forms can only be round or blocky, let those forms inform you line choice. Also be careful of copying KChen mannerisms, learn why he has made those choices, the one that catches my attention the most is the tapering of women's arms and legs to needle like cones.
"Beliefs are rules for action"
"Knowledge is proven in action."
"It's use is it's meaning."
That's a cool site. Thanks for sharing that.
oh, and I did a far inferior Michaelangelo for the torso study.
I cannot compete with your great rendering style.
armando: Thanks a lot armando, lots of great crits. About the KChen stuff, I can asure you I'm not trying to copy any style/mannerisms. I use his drawings more like I would use photorefs, to check for proportions and gesture of the figure. I'm not a big fan of photorefs. Awesome crit on the arms/legs tapering, I've never thought about that. Now when say it, I must have gotten that from Chen without realizing . I'll try to work that habbit away. Thanks alot for stopping by.
max: Thanks max. I'll go check that Michaelangelo out right away
Some random recent stuff. Jack Hamm, Loomis, random figures, leg studies and a doodle. Make up yourself what's what.

Wow. Your line work on the Jack Hamm stuff is sick.
Since it appears that you do requests
here's 2 :
. Take one of those really cool costumed character designs (like the doodle you just posted) and give it the same treatment you did for the color figure study.
. Go with one of those enviromental thumbnails ( I vote for the mountain joint on the top right) and do a splash with details developed. Maybe even in color.
And make 'em big so I can have an Olle Werme desktop background
Thanks Max. The purpose of those Jack Hamm drawings was to draw everything with just one line, never draw over a previous line and of course never use an eraser (that's also my excuse for some of them looking like shit ).
Alright, I may give those requests a try, maybe, we'll see.
I got this huge test wednesday which I really need to study to and now you're motivationg me like crazy. Gah...
*runs off to draw, I'll blame max if I get a low grade. I'm sure my teacher will understand*

cool sketches and studies here. I really should do more studies myself. I like the digitals, real nice colouring there. Also the mini gestures look good. I'd really like to see some finished works here.
Hi guys, I'm just logging in to say I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while. My computer just died on me this thuesday, it's been a pain trying get it up working again. I'm alive now though so I'll try to post something as soon as I get up to speed, hopefully tomorrow.
Hyver, Marty and Listing: Thanks a lot guys, just what I needed
did the leg studies or the 'i hate legs' comment come first?
i see we have some loomis in common :.
I missed a lot of cool stuff here! I`m very fond of your little gesture pages - very believable and energetic poses, great work! Also I like your body, head and especially leg`s studies - very nice. And it`s good to see you`re continue drawing doodles from mind - my favorite is one with "I hate legs" mark, nice lines and damn elegance in it, who cares that it`s just a doodle? Keep up the good work, bro!
Max: I honestly don't remember which one was first, I just hate legs xD. Loomis ftw!
Ulver: thanks alot Ulver, very motivating words ^^
I'm very sorry I haven't posted in ages, dad took his camera to work and didn't return it for a week or two . Got it back home yesterday though so it's time for a megapost.
btw - I just ordered Bridgemans holy Bible, should be here any day. I can wait!
Lots of variation in this post, mostly doodles but also some anatomy studies, figures (the good ones are reffed, the bad ones probably aren't), some daily superspeedhands and also some drawings from the SW: episode 3 artbook (got to borrow it for a couple of days, it was totally awesome).
Enough talk, here goes (these took ages to upload btw, no more mega posts for me ):
EDIT: It seems I can't upload any more images, did CA go down? Whatever, I'll post the other half later. Got 9 more.

Good to see a new post. Thought you got lost in the land of academic testing somewhere.
I especially like the figure on the right on the first page and the hand studies are great.
Show me the other 9!
Max: Thanks Max, here comes the rest.
Most of stuff on page 1-3 is reffed from that Star Wars artbook I talked about.

agree with frank nice and loose, great lines
keep up with the anatomy, i'll check back later
