Caricature tutorial

Hi all. So there's a first time for everything. This is my first gumroad tutorial. In this demo I show my process of setting up a caricature, based on the gesture in the face and adding volumes by adding tonality. In the video I talk you through the process from the very first line to the final result you can see as the cover for this product. 
With first times come first time mistakes, and as I played back the recording, I discovered the sound is a bit crunchy from time to time. So why not start my launch at gumroad with a discount. Only $5 for this demo, that lasts over an hour!!

The full tutorial can be found here:

More oils

To me painting in oils is an adventure. I like to experiment and look for ways to put the way I see the world on to the canvas. In this particular piece I played with edges, values and limited use of color.

I wanted to do sketch recording. Unfortunately the screencapture program crashed... No recording, but I did save the drawing...

Checkin'my messages...

I used to creep into a corner when I would do sketches outside, so I could look at people without them seeing me. Nowadays I can just sit right in front of them, because they are all completely obsessed by their smart devices. These are just a few random pictures from my sketchbook, and by itself, 'someone looking at their phone' has become the main subject of my sketches. 
In itself there's nothing wrong with having a phone, and using it, but I found that it really breaks up your attention span. If you really want to achieve something, then focus, turn your phone off, and get to work. When each of these men or women was looking at their phones, I was drawing. And to be honest, it just is much more fun. let's draw!!
