Very nice! ...and fabulous foreshortening sketches.
wookiedabo: Thank you so much! I'll see what I can do about her jawline, what exactly did you have in mind?
I've not been half as good enough at updating here as I should, but I haven't made a lot lately. Here's what I'm doing right now, trying out a muted pallette, trying my best not to oversaturate colors. Kind of just learning how to work colors :p
i like it all the foreshortening studies are super nice and make me want to do some of my own! do you use painter or ps ( i think ps right ?).. those are nice as well.. - best - kevin 5 stars!
the blog will not leave me be: http://www.kevinwuesteart.blogspot.com
You've got some butt-kicking skills!!
Are you currently residing in Oslo? If so -- join up for some café sketching??
vlad74: Thanks for the stars!
kevinwueste: Thanks! Yeah, I use Photoshop, I never really got around to learning Painter :p
Janos: I study mostly from photos, but on some foreshortening sketches I use my own legs and arm as models. But not for any of those I've posted here, and I guess I haven't scanned any of the others. Also, thanks a lot for the kind words!
CgMonkey: Thank you! I live close to Oslo, and go to school with Even, and I have been to the sunday sketching club thing about four or five times. Who're you? I'm the guy with the afro :p
Jofx: Tackar! Prøver å lære meg litt farger og sånt, så jeg må øveøveøve. Mulig jeg aldri gidder å gjøre ferdig denne her, egentlig, er sykt lei av den. Også ble den litt for glatt for my liking.
So here are four studies I did today, kind of playing around with cross hatching and line weight and what have you, trying to make it all work. I haven't really drawn anything for a week now, so they're a bit sloppy in places :p
I like the hands and arms of the last one especially

wow awesome stuff! how long does a drawing like this take you?
whoa just saw the foreshortened arms and legs! aaaaawesome stuff! 5stars!!!
Your studies are really great. I really love those tight, clean lines and your way of defining form. I can see that you're thinking about how to maximize the usefulness of every line on the page to describe the figure. I can't wait to see more from your sketchbook.
Nice stuff, I like how crisp/hard your lines are.
Josef K.: I'm not really sure, I never took the time, but I will sometime! I'll be sure to get back to you about that. And thanks for the stars!
akabraille: You're right, I do try to get all the lines to work well together, but I don't always succeed, unfortunately, so I gotta practice more on that. Find the balance
Here are a few more, and I really should draw more guys, I see now that I never do that :p
Janos: I have, unfortunately, far from mastered anatomy yet. I started drawing seriously about three and a half years ago, and I guess I started doing anatomy studies a couple of years ago, maybe more. These days I draw and paint a lot from life at school, which of course helps a great deal, but I'm constantly trying to figure out how the body is put together
Thanks to everyone for their kind words
Here's something I started on today, to get this far took me a little more than an hour, which I'm very proud of. I've been inspired a lot by Rembrandt lately (trying not to get stuck in that Uglow style too much), and kind of tried a somewhat Rembrandt-ish pallette today, but not so much, I see now. Should I up the contrast to make the dark almost black, and the skin more golden-like, like the second image?
great studiesss! those lines are so nice
do you get them good like that in one time or
you erase alot of lines?
anywayz it looks really good
This is a very good thread! Really strong sketches. Its nice to see that there are so many young peoples on CA like you ; )

So many cool studies, you've got a nice flow to your lines! Maybe you could do some more imaginative stuff? Always good to put in to practice what you've learned. ^_^
awe! nice at du prøver og vere rask lag noen raske skisser å. 10 min eller mindre på hver lissom for du er veldig flink til detaljer, men trenger litt øvelse på hastiget
og prøv og lage noe uten ref
Mischeviouslittleelf:You know what, I don't agree with you! I kept in mind what you told me about varying hues more when painting, is it better now? Tried to kind of let go of my too-tightedness when it comes to stuff like that, but I still think I'm a bit stiff. You know? Always having to make it perfect, etc. :p
`ej:Thanks! Sometimes I erase some lines, but usually not. If I'm in a good drawing "mood", I never erase anything, but that seldom happens. I draw very slowly, though :p
Schmitz: Thank you! I try staying young, but it's not that easy, with time and all :p
Imaginary:Thanks a lot! I need to draw more frequently though, and more from imagination, as you say. I tend to never do that as I'm not very good at it, but lately I've been trying to draw portraits and faces without reference, and I'm getting better :p
DStraX: Jeg prøver, ja, men det er ikke så lett. Har blitt litt raskere da, men jeg bør tegne mer.
Here's a portrait I made yesterday of a friendesse of mine. I tried to vary hues more, like Even said I should, and I think I succeeded (to some extent). Oh well, I'll probably upload some sketchbook pages one of these days Here's a Time lapse of it

Haha, great sketchbook this is! Demoralising and inspiring at the same time. Your age makes me feel envious. I love your forshortning sketches and your portraits!

I would really love some honest critiques and improvements suggestions
Renewed Study - I'm drawing again!!
very nice work.
Been a while since I've stumbled in here. Your colour selection is amazing, really love the green in the most recent painting. The considered quality of your lines is something I've been trying to do for ages, you make it look far to easy. Are some of those face sketches from ref? So yeah, no crits, I've got nothing helpful to say or point out, awesome stuff mate.
