My name is Rembrandt van Leeuwen from the Netherlands.

Thumbnail sketches. Getting some ideas out :)
I really like the painterly appearance of a lot of your stuff, particularly the reptile piece you did. I would say though that your blending could be a bit more thorough in places.
Great sketchbook. I agree with stardustLarva, I really like the painterly feel.
Hello Rembrandt!

Good start here. I agree with the guys about the painterly feel. I really enjoy it.

I think that if you work on the edges and try to render a little more your paintings will look much better.

Almost forget to say that the Lagertha study is pretty cool :D

Keep going!
Thanks a lot for the compliments and advice! Really appreciated, will apply it to my future work! :)

Here are some more WIP-ish pieces I've worked on, more polished pieces coming up however!
