DhArt Sketchbook (aka, Help!!)

Skip to the last page please. This sketchbook begun in 2012 and has just recently started to get updated again.


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 Conceptart.org here: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread....book/page5

I also got a deviantart account here: http://zorrentos.deviantart.com/

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 :-)

Just randomly saw your deathline post. Got some good stuff in here already man, the studies are looking great. Keep it up, and you'll smash it. Good luck :)

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.

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

Wow, visiting this sb is really taking me back .. Lots of stuff has changed since then.
So anyway, I lost my password to my newer user, but the webmaster mananged to give me back my info for this old account. I will be updating this sb daily from now on. I got a non-art related full time job but im still hoping to produce a lot of stuff.

Here is my other CD sketchbook (will never be updated again, but u can see some other stuff I did since leaving this one Shock):


Here's my other SBs at other sites (all updated Thumbs_up):



Here's todays stuff, 2 studies and applying from imagination:

Time for day 5 of daily updates.
Gesturs and figure studies as usual.

Here are some sketches from imagination to apply the studies Thumbs_up:

I didn't have a lot of time today. Had to clean my house and do a lot of choirs. I also started reading the books I recived in the mail today. Burne Hogarth - Dynamic light and shade and Scott robertson - How to Draw. I will study both a lot!
Anyways, a little art is better then no art I think ... Enjoy!

Hey, glad to see you posting on daggers again, great progress man! Keep it up ! :)
