Umbus -SketchBook- opened again lol

I hope this is ok, I wanted to start a sketchbook and I am trying to do my stuff daily.
Me, I am looking for a personaly style. Maybe it looks simplifed or just crap.
Feel free to comment.
I am doing this on my sparetime.

One from today:

I will try to update daily.

OMG this is great, I love this kind of rough sketches. There's everything : perspective, form, value, color, nicely readable. Simply great. It's great you're updating daily. I'll be watching your thread with passion (and hopefully learn something from you)

I would like to ask you how do you mix your colors. Do you use lots of refferences or do you mix em in your head as you go? Because they look just so accurate, damn.

wow that was fast. Yea I mix in my head, keep refining
and adding different tonal and color. Fun to just experiment with what works.
thank you.

siiilon - Thought I could show you these, a quick tutorial I made for another forum I visit. Just to show you how I work.
Still though, I tend to change my paint approach.
Sometimes it goes really fast but sometimes I have to keep adding and detract color and and shape thus changing a lot to see where the piece could go.
The best speedpainters I have seen block out big abstract shapes.
Are you familiar with wasssup?
He used to post here in cgalk some years ago.

Here's the quick stuff.

Thanks buddy, I really apreciate you share your knowlede

Yeah, big abstract shapes from start, but that needs a great deal of experience. Cause I see yet in your first image a good sense of what it's going to be (vanishing point, color scheme, high key, composition. I need to do plenty of thumbnails to get myself into some idea.

I don't know wasssup, but search for him.

Btw, I have pretty hectic time right now, so I don't really update my SB, but I hope I could get back to it soon.
