More hands

Just some colour studies I forgot to post earlier. Turned out a little messier than the black and white ones but it was harder to get them right in colour >:
On an other note, today is Walpurgis Night here in Sweden which basically means that a shit load of teens go out and drink themselves half to death while either watching a big bonfire or getting pissed at some random flat party. I don't plan on getting that pissed but I might have a beer or two just for the sake of it. And there will be fireworks yay c:

Weee I can post more anatomy studies now. I could before as well but trying to scan an A3 size sketchbook doesn't give you good looking scans and taking photos of them wasn't much better. But now I'm using my A4 one so I'll be able to scan them now without getting pissed off at them.
Anyways, these are some foot studies I've done lately because I'm horrible at feet... still am so I'll have to keep practicing. After this I'll be doing hands and after hands I'll probably go for the skull.
Most of these studies are from art books by George Bridgeman, Gottfried Bammes and Paul Richer. Some of them are drawn from photo refs.

A little monster that I had sketched out in my sketchbook a while ago and decided to colour yesterday. I came up with this about the same time I started coming up with that Fungai City drawing...obviously. It's hands and feet are a bit off though. But yes, nothing more to say about this, just enjoy c:
Och and I ordered the three first Scott Pilgrim books <3

Groene vruchten

Time to get back in to more studying now that I've got that damn portfolio picture out of the way... at last. I actually had quite fun doing this but I don't really like the texture on the apple. I need to start using more hard brush only or something to make it less blurry or something. I don't know, it just feels like the spot where the shade meets the light feels a bit... noisy?
Anyways, time to get back to doing more studies. And now that I'm sketching anatomy studies in my A4 sketchbook I might even post them for once.

And here's a long quote but it's a good one so I'm putting it here.

It destroys everything around it except itself. Self-pity will destroy relationships, it will destroy anything that’s good, it will fulfill all the prophesies it makes and leave only itself. And it’s so simple to imagine that one is hard done by, and that things are unfair, and that one is under-appreciated, and that if only one had had a chance of this or only one had had a chance at that, things would have gone better. You would be happy if only this. That one is unlucky. All those things - and some of them may well even be true - but to pity oneself as a result of them is to do oneself an enormous disservice. - Stephen Fry

Fungai City

Damn I've been away for quite some time now, sorry about that. It keeps happening D: This time it was this thing that kept me away mostly. Yet I'm not even close to being happy with it because the lights and shadows are so horrendous it's not even fun. But it's decent enough for a portfolio that I'm going to send soon so I'll live with it for now. And I guess I learned a thing or two here so it was worth it in the end despite the final product c:
Constructive critique is greatly appreciated.

Another still life painting. This time of some perfume bottle thing that just lays around in my room. I don't use perfume >:U
But yeah slightly better than the last one but still needs a hell of a lot of work before I get anywhere haha. Though tomorrow I think I'll spend most of my drawing time on this one painting that I'm going to use for a portfolio that I'm going to send off to a college later on.

A still life painting I did yesterday of a mug, some brushes and a dice that I used when I played Magic: The Gathering back in the days. It turned out quite horrible and made me realize how much more I need to work on my still life paintings from now on. It was fucking hard to find the colours ;o; Buuut all I need is practice, practice and then some more practice.

OH OH and those who wanna join a contest go to Level Up Art Contest on deviantART. We would love to have more people there and the deadline for the next contest is in 5 days. We could also use a couple of judges to judge this contest D:

A value study I started on yesterday and finished today. When I finished the last one I was all "Damn I should have made it look like rock, paper, scissors" but I couldn't be bothered to make yet another one.

Muchacha nerviosa

A portrait I just finished today. I would've been happier with it if I didn't use a grid to get everything right lmao. Next time I do a portrait I'm going to do it without using a grid because I don't wanna be stuck using it all the time. Gotta push myself away from it c:
Next I need to do some kind of city concept but I cant seem to get any good ideas for it out of my head so I think I'll sketch a bunch of thumbnails of city concepts and so on. Ideas and suggestions are greatly appreciated <3

Just some random doodles of some seahorses... and zombie pears. I blame Marlene for these >:U
But yeah I'll try to put something a bit more serious soon enough lmao.

Stolen Kiss

God damn it took me a while to finally get something done that's worth posting... I should probably start scanning some sketches I do as well but it's mostly just anatomy shit.
Anyways, here's a master study I've been working on and off for a few days now and I'm glad it's finally done so I can move on to the next thing. I only used the part of the ref where you can see the girl and the dress because doing the whole room would have taken me even longer and I'm not doing that >:U Besides, it was the dress that caught my eye and made me wanna paint it.
Och and there's another contest going on at deviantART on the Level up art contest group thing so be sure to check it out if you haven't already: Level up art contest: Steampunk Invention

An original idea. That can't be too hard. The library must be full of them - Stephen Fry

Alistair Concept

Another concept piece of one of these people. A guy this time but a bit more demented haha. I don't quite like how his trousers came out though but whatever c:
Not much more to add about this guy. Going to post this on tomorrow because I'm too tired now... actually, fuck it, I'll do it now >:U
MEAN WHILE more music:

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God
