blaaah...school sucks... blaaah
Interesting to see how you drew from mind before and after :)

isra-ac --> Yeah it's always cool to see progress , too bad you'll have to stick around to see any progress in the end :D

Ok I was really lazy the last few days and that's why I didn't upload ( not that anybody cares :D ) I don't feel bad though , because I read a lot of stuff and I learned a lot. For the next week I have to study a lot for school , but I hope that I will be able to draw a good amount a day.So yeaaaah...my life...whatever...blah blah...now for some "artsy" shits ^^
oh btw , I bought myself an awesome A3 format sketchbook and I love it, I've never had so much ROOM!!!I love it , the only bad thing is that my scanner isn't big enough so I'll post camera pics.It looks like it doesn't change the quality THAT much so it'll be ok ^^

Some hands from life ( I really need to get myself a smaller portable mirror, It's so uncomortable with a big one :O )

some heads , they're all from mind ( about 100 I think)
When I was adjusting the contrast something fucked up the quality...sorry...I don't feel like doing it again :D

nothing digital though :\ I'll draw more bad stuff and I'll post them so you can laugh ^^
Awesome, I take my hat off (is that right in english? XD) in front of that bunch of cool face drawings!

Thanks , Isra! :)

Just a quick doodle before doing homework :D haha , I smudged the crap out of it XD

His thoughts are inspired by Sycra's stream :D

crappy sketchbook page...no imagination AT ALL...I dunno what's happening :D
[Image: DSC03144.JPG]
some more hands - On the one I tried a more refined rendering ( you probably can't see it that well because of the pic quality). Haven't really done one of those , but it was really fun and I will definitely do more of those.I actually kinda like the one! :D weird...I must be getting soft :D

[Image: 109.JPG]
I was away for 3 days and I brought my tablet , I thought it would be awesome!Painting digital plein air!!...my pressure sensitivity didn't work because of a sucky laptop... X.X :|
Here's what I could do without breaking the laptop to pieces :D 2 hrs
[Image: 10.jpg]
So it's been a long time since I posted. Everything is pretty much the same though :D
I won't be able to post anything but digital stuff , because my sketchbook is too big for the scanner and my father took the camera with him ( He works as a ship mechanic and he travels a lot ) . You'll probably get bored anyway , I mean it's something like 30 pages of shits :D
so here's some creature sketches :P

Finally I downloaded Alchemy.That shit's fun! :D Ideas popped in my head so fast after only 4-5 secs of playing around on a blank canvas.So fun.
Here's the first sketch I did with it.

[Image: firstsketch.jpg]

[Image: sketch.jpg]
Changed the composition , thanks to some really helpful advice from Sickbrush.

[Image: sketch2.jpg]

I'll probably continue work on it tomorrow...now sleep!
Here's some sketches from boring classes at school :D ( from the smaller sketchbook.I don't think I'm going to use the other one too much until the camera returns :P )

[Image: scan0001.jpg]

[Image: scan0002.jpg]

and some progress with the dragon thing. I put some basic colors on the main dragons and riders.I had to get rid of the knight in the foreground though.I'll try to think of something else to put there ... but what??...hmm...we'll see :D

[Image: sketch3.jpg]
Bleh , sorry for the one image update , but I wanted to drop some progress on the dragon piece.
I still can't think of what to put instead of the knight.It may be another knight , but I can't think of the pose :\ . I guess I'll have to keep thinking.I have to fix the lighting on the dragons.It's amazingly wrong right now :X argh...so much things to fix :(

[Image: sketch4.jpg]

I started a livestream btw , if any of you feels like joining me sometime :P

brown paper stuff is so fun! I know it looks like shit , it's partly the scanner's fault :D
