Hi! I've recently got back into drawing and I thought I'd make my own sketchbook in here. I took quite a long break from drawing but now it's time to kickstart the ole art-engine again. I hope you like my art, if you don't then please crit it to pieces. I want to improve!
That's all for now, please leave a comment!

Hey, you're off to a good start. love the appleface.
to try and be a bit more helpful: I think you should have another look at the perspective in the quick landscape. the sides of the floor the building is standing on have a vanishing point on the horizon which would be way further up actually. I'm not so good at explaining I'm just thinking of on-point perspective here.
really like the one you posted the process of. cool design just a minor nitpic is that I think the very straight line the shoulder plates present stiffens (if thats even a word.) the figure too much. Good brushwork, though-
don't take a long break again!
hey, thanks for your reply! I don't quite see the floor-issue on the speedpaint, but I do know that it has some problems with perspective. Rushed it a bit too much I guess.. thanks for the crits mate, i really apprecciate it!
Here's an old sketch i forgot to upload before, might aswell post it:
And an enviroment speedpaint:
One more enviroment:
And here's an old pic that i gave some more love:

Messy character drawing, just experimenting with brushes and such:
This is a female character that I will spend some more time on drawing, hopefully you'll get an update tomorrow. Also I had to use reference to get the body right, chicks are bloody hard to draw x.x oh well I'm quite happy with the way it turned out:
Update on the female character. Any crits before I continue?
She looks pretty solid to me. My only thought would be to maybe bring her nose down a bit... or her eyes up. Or just make her head taller. Haha, her nose seems a bit too short, and her upper lip a bit too long, which takes away a bit of the beauty from her face.
And I love the swamp monster silhouette
drewfarr: Thanks! I see what you're saying about the face, I'll definiately think about what you said. Update coming soon!
Here's a quick thing before going to bed:
hey man, i diggin your silhouettes and ur brushy stuff. one common thing i can see with your stuff is that you can get caught up on certain details like a face lighting or small details in the armor. this is going to burn you out pretty quickly, try mixing it up while your painting. for example after your intial rough try evenly layering the details, stage 1 25% stage 2 50% etc etc. and if you do catch yourself sitting on one detail, move on to another and so on. anywho, good luck and keep drawing.
So far, so good. I agree with TOOLED, though.
TOOLED!: True, true. I do focus too much on specific details, and that's not a good thing. Good advice man, and thanks for stopping by!
ninjacat11: Alright, well thanks for commenting!
Tiny update, I've been spending the whole week in Norway so I have'nt been able to draw that much, but more stuff will come tomorrow hopefully.
A little step-by-step thing:
Eva K: Hehe, glad you like 'em!
eparts: Ok I will! Thanks for commenting
Update at last!
A few silhouettes:
A crappy doodle:
And a spacepirate:
A robot doodle:
And a few studies:
Two new studies, first one is poses from posemaniacs:
And a random doodle:
RandAlThor: Yeah I know. I won't stop practising, I promise! ;P Thanks for the comment man.
Alrighty new stuff coming through::
And new studies:
You're good at anatomy and form, but you could improve on mood, perspective and color. Apart from that you need to spent more time on the design itself, instead of rushing to the presentation right away. Also try to study different materials such as different metals, cloth, wood, plastic, ect.
I like the blue man. You're good. Keep it up!
V. nice start some of your images are better than other, the environments I'm liking a lot try doing some anatomy studies, and lots of them!
sup man, good to see you. I had tried to find your sketchbook here before, but I must have missed it.
can't wait for the next update!
Name's Todd. I'd encourage you to check out my sketchbook, but it's full of shit, natch.
Hay cool sb here man,
really dig the studies and you've got some really cool concepts going here
good stuff man keep posting
In the absence of light, dark will prevail.
