God, these just keep looking worse every time I look at them >_<
Whats up DoubleThink!
Cool sketchbook you have here
Really like the brush pen work
Keep it up -Omerta
sketchbook updated October 6th
Omerta >> Thanks man :-)
Today's not really my day apparently, so i'd best stop.
Here's the two best from a batch of 10.

Last one's a a little longer
Here's some in-class coursework from this year.
It's all from before newyears though, all classical studies from observation.
Hey dude, dank je wel voor je comment op mijn SB!
Machtig SB heb je hier, ook al vind ik je studies beter dan het werk uit je hoofd. Probeer je lijnkwaliteit eerst te verbeteren. Kijk bijv. de DVD's van Feng Zhu, die legt dat heel goed uit. En observeer proporties van mensen en gezichten.
Succes! Oefen ze!
Hi Man, you have a great sketchbook here! I like the marker renderings you did and the objects you draw. For your figure work i would recommend you to do some basic anatomy studies, and concentrate on volumes and basic shapes. That provides a more solid base to start from. Later on you can devellop your own style by leaving things out or symplifying etc. keep going!
you are keeping yourself busy good to see you are doing a lot of different things. at the ones with the sailor boys i noticed the set-up is really off. probably a patience thing maybe take your time to have a good sketch before you start with the markers. then it will look ten times better i think!

ajvenema > you're right, I just went at it without thinking it through.
I'm trying to learn some more anatomy now, maybe that'll help. The studies seem to be slowing me down too... We'll see where it takes us
Hyver > Graag!
Bartovan > See below.
You're not the first one to suggest that to me. I've been hearing it from everywhere, so I thought I'd just cave & get cracking on the studying :-)
Tom van der Linden > Graag gedaan. Ik zal die Fheng Zhu zeker eens bekijken. Bedankt voor de tips!
Expect plenty more soon :-)
Here's 2 Ruben's studies
In pencil nevertheless, I might do some oils later
You can learn a lot from copying :-)
Not sure if I like this approach. I may have to check how Loomis hits this subject...
Great improvement from the beginning! You've ditched a ton of stiffness, which in my opinion was one of your bigger problems, and those studies are kickin'. If I could say one thing it's that your shading weight clashes with your line weight, try darkening or lightening one or the other and I think they'll work better together.
Keep it up!
Thx for the advice Nateman, I'll keep it in mind :-)
Some stuff from over the summer.
I'm trying my hands on some PS coloring again.
Hope everyone had a great summer :-)
Here's some more stuff, mostly figure studies.
Some of these turned out quite well :-)
Mostly excercices on foreshortening.
Let me know what you guys think
Some more drawings,
Some are quite sloppy though, I'll try & do some more worked out ones over the next few days.
Also, there's a picture of a sandwich I took.

I'm thinking of making a series out of this one.
Awesome finch study. I love birds.
My only comment on your faces is you have the features down, but the under structure seems to be soft. Your faces seem to stretch or sketch to slight angle giving it a more cartoony feel.
If you have good observation skill drawing these blocks, if you apply that same focus to drawing the under structure of the face, I think it would help. Just my two cents.
Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!
Some nice improvements here, though your linework is still inconfident. Try not to overdraw every contour a dozen times just define them with one (or two) strokes. I'd also suggest to pick up a good anatomy book and copy from it as much as you can. I can see that you like drawing faces (like most of us) but you won't succeed till you don't have solid knowledge of facial anatomy. Check Loomis' Heads and Hands book. I'ts avaliable here and it's for free.

I've done some head studies, but they're in my other sketchbook & I don't feel like photographing it all.
I got a job!
Which oddly enough, gives me more time to sketch :p
I spend 2 hours on the train each day, so that works out okay.
^that's workstuff, a little logo

You're getting much better but I think it would help you to try and practice/sketch with a much tighter style for the time being. Try laying out sketches all loose to define them with something like a 6h pencil and then try and use that to create really sharp and tight lines. I think right now what your work is missing is sharp definition of features and the like.
There's some MS Paint in there too ^^

that HAHA... page was inspired by someone else who did it with the joker.
Don't know who did it, but on anyhand, his was way better than mine :p
Look at that, it's an update.
I've been slacking it lately and want to get back on track with my drawing.
Here's some recent stuff

Tires still suck... :/
i might update tomorrow with a hopefully better version
Quick brush test, no reference
Some sketches, no references :/
