Here is some examples from my sketchbook! Hope you enjoy! Most of them are reproductions of daarken's original subject, and the credit goes to him!

Critics are welcome! So comment!! :)

And sorry for the big size! the next time will be smaller!
hey Enrico, nice start for your sketchbook, i recognise most of the illustrations you studied from Daarken as he is one of my fav artists out there.
Overall, these are good studies but my personal suggestion is, when doing studies stay away from artists that are currently working on the industry. Try doing some studies from old masters, that would be 10x more challenging (and potentially 10x times fun!)

Looking forward to see more!
Thanks Ed, I will follow your advice! I've just start mine digital experience, and I didn't know how to start, so I thought Daarken subjects were useful to start!
then i think this site have all you need to get started :)
Another piece to add to my sketchbook...
You sure love skulls! Awesome sketchbook
Landscape comp study. Made in about 7 hours.
A wip, studying colors and volumes of the face and the details around..:)
Speedpainting, 20 minutes
Hello Enrico, nice sketchbook you have here.
I recognised some studies you were doing here. As you already got suggestion up there- try doing some studies on old masters, colors are much more challenging.
ANd you should do more human studies-that one actually looked nice. Always make sure to know where the focus is and what is going to have more details,and what less.

Keep up with good work and have fun :D
Hey thanks for the advice, I'm already doing some studies from Caravaggio. For the focus, I think that if I'm doing some anatomy study, I must focus on all the details to learn every part of anatomy. But in the case I'm working on an illustration, the piece will be focused on what I want to focus, and will be less detailed where i want the eye pass away...
A glass texture study and a 40 minutes speedpainting :)
20 minutes speedpaint
great start! wish I was this good when i started...heck, I wish I am this good now!

Hey, try applying your studies towards a full illustration! I'm interested to see how it will turn out (:
be sure to post those caravaggio studies, also nice to see a still life here, do more! :)
Sure, i'll post it when i finish the study! :)
