Subject title: Saiko´s Sketches

Heey guys, i´ve actually have another sketchbook already, but i haven´t kept track of updating it at all. So i thought it might be better creating a new one.
But this time i wanna make sure i´ll upload from time to time :D
I got a lot of Drawings and Sketchings flying around but i guess i have to start somewhere :D

Critiques and feedback are always very welcome, I hope you enjoy my little Journey with my Art.

So let´s go!

Rofl, Hiiiii
Fancy seeing you here bigboi

Nice sketches and paintings
It would be a shame if someone were to... call them bad without giving any helpful reasons why
LOL keep up the good work but maybe figure out how to render skin better because the way you're rendering skin looks a bit dead or like clay at times.
Other than that I look forward to pestering you in more than one internet place.
Hey, before you keep browsin', check my art out if you haven't already!

@PitE the elf girl is nyssa from magic the gathering
And chances are quite hogh that wesley burt designed her originally but i'm not sure about that. The drawing tho was from imagination just with reference for the design.

@Engell79 thanks for the kind words i try my best to keep this updated.

@tele i hope you won't be as mean as u usually are xD

So appearently it is really hard to do a lot of sketches and painting while working full time and also having to car about the household and stuff...

But still that way i have to collect for a couple of days and mix some older stuff into it to keep this thing nice and updated.

So here you guys have some quite recent sketches and a older study i did with a couple of good friends :)

Critique is more than welcomed, Hope you like it .)

Hey guys, I am back with some sketches and a finished painting.

i mainly tried to work a little more on my perspective and some expressions. I think a dramatic perspective helps poses quite tremendously on making them more intresting.

Hope you like it :)

Your paintings are very impressive, I really like how you capture scenes. Especially with the ancient stuff, I had all ways found that hard to with that time period.

This one is only a small update i´ve been quite busy with work lately and with comissions.
I do have some other drawings in traditional that i could share but it is always such an effort to actually upload from the smartphone :D
So i still hope you like it:)

I am back with something a little bit different than anatomy and just poses.
I actually started studying horses and i want to do alot of other animals too because i want to get more into creatures and i think those are actually a good starting point to get an overall idea of animals.
And the landscapes are from a study session i did with some buds a couple of weeks ago but i thought i´d still share them :))

Hey guys,
i am back with some sketching i did in the last couple of days :) I know it is kinda repetitive but thats how i go about learning something completely new. Drawing it from reference once and then drawing it again without reference a couple of days later.
If you have other tips how to go better about studying please let me know because this is also getting a little bit boring :D
Also did some quick Jousting-Armor Studies today.

Hi,

nice studies. I work exatly the same way. 1st I draw according to a reference and then out of my memory without it. Only diference is, that I do it straight away. And then after couple of days later I repeat it.

Btw, very nice paintings. I like the most the archer in the wood. Nice colors:D

Have a great day and enjoy your drawing process:D

Hey guys, it´s been a while since i´ve posted something the last time. I did draw a lot tho.
I think the main problem right now is Inktober it just fills alot of my sparetime and to addition it is traditional and i have to actually edit the photographs because they are too big to upload.

But whatever here is a little selection of my Inktober i did so far and some other paintings and stuff :)

This is a really nice Sketchbook!
Your construction of human anatomy looks so interesting,
what is it inspired by? For example picture 5,6,7 of the first post.
Is that a specific teacher?

I got my knowledge mostly trough YouTube videos and there was one book I've read that probably had quite a big impact and that was michael Hamptons Figure Drawing Design and Invention. I think there is even a pdf online you can look at.

I am glad you left a comment in my sketchbook, as otherwise I would miss your sketchbook ;) I really like your paintings, you have a great style, where you do not blend too much, but colors still looks very good together. Keep them coming :)
