DhArt Sketchbook (aka, Help!!)
Hello. I have decided to start a sketchbook here. My name is Dennis. I recently turned 25 years old and I live in Sweden.

I have been drawing since about late 2010/early 2011, I got a tablet in november 2010 and started doing digital art then, but it took a couple of months to learn even the basics of photoshop, such as layers, drawing lineart and such (im a slow learner with new things sometimes :s).

I became really serious about art in September 2011 when I started to go to school again, before that, I used to waste time playing video games, work in regular jobs such as a forklift truck driver, warehouse employee etc. Going to clubs etc etc. :(

I got a sketchbook at here:

I also got a deviantart account here:

Here is some of my work, planning on updating here as often as possible:

These are very impressive, especially considering they've been drawing without reference. I would say that area to improve on is with variation of shape. You have a tendency to curve and round off features where some straighter lines would give more character / realism. For instance, your jaw lines all follow a similar curve - some variation would add character. Very nice work and I look forward to seeing more. I had a look at your DeviantArt gallery and am now following you there too :-)

Thanks JakeB! I was a bit in rage over how much I suck when I wrote that! I hope to achieve all thoose goals this year! :)

Stuff from today. Some studies and thumbnails from imagination. I will probably upload all the weeks sketches on one single day. It's just easier to scan that way.

Not so much stuff today ... Been busy with some errands and stuff.

Here's a half-finished study and a half-finished speedpaint. I will continue on both tomorrow when I start on the hair.

Thanks Zesiul! I always apply my studies, but yesterday, I just couldn't finish my picture ... It turned out to be such a huge fail that I actually scrapped it...

Anyway, heres two studies and a refless speedie I did today after school:

Hey Dennis, nice work ;3 You're doing all sort of good stuff and it's awesome that you keep variety in your work. However I would give more love to those environment stuff if I were you ;). Faces are looking good ;3 Keep pushing, mate <3

Hey everyone. The last few months have been really something ... I graduated school ... I vent on a 5 week amazing roadtrip to USA ... When I got back home, I found out that my life had collapsed on itself ... but thats a diffirent story!
Now im left with nothing but time (atm anyway, I guess you can never know what to expect next), so I decided to come back to updating all my threads. I will really do all I can to just produce as much art as possible and improve as much as I possibly can. Any critiscism or advice would be really apreciated! Maybe this time, I can actually succeed in doing updates pretty much every day.
I've been doing tons and tons of studies and art during this long break from the internet, but i'll just go ahead and show you some really recent stuff (only some sketches and personal work). The last image of the swamp dude is a WIP btw, so crits here would be extra nice. :
