There's a lot going on at the moment so I haven't had the time to update yet. First thing on saturday, I promise.

I have a little trouble uploading my pieces, but they're done. I'll try to have a full update online by tomorrow. Here's today's drawing, which I colored with gouache as part of a promise for a friend's birthday. I'll photograph paintings from now on, since I can't get the colors to look right on the scan.

An ink sketch of a Kingfisher with a serious case of shortbeak, from photograph.

A values-study from Maughan's "Drawing the Head". He's a bit more cross-eyed than the one in the book though.

I had an exam today and did some anatomy studies in the afternoon, so there was not much time left for other drawings. But I made this doodle while studying for the exam.

Another vector piece. Played around with the brushstrokes and painted the highlights with the pencil, so it looks a little more dirty than the previous vector. I liked the background on the frog, so I tried it again with this angry dragon.

A little bar scene I did to experiment with coloring. I was too eager to color, so I got a little impatient with the inking as you can clearly see. Left a lot of mistakes in there.
Update: the coloring was going nowhere, so I'll be finishing it later.

Experimenting with paints. I used acrylic and watercolor for this one. Not very happy with the result, but I like the medium so I'll do some more.

I made a logo out of the little viking I had drawn earlier. Click it for a larger version. If anyone's looking for an angry viking as a logo, contact me and we can work something out.

Watch out, it's Wrong-Proportions Man!

Same problem as yesterday. This was done on a large sheet of paper so I had to photograph it. This time, Photoshop wasn't really helpful since the lines are very thin and light. I'll do some research on how to take good pictures of these drawings.


January 7, 2010

These were quite large so I had to take pictures. The light wasn't good so I played with the levels a bit using Photoshop. It's not perfect, but it's fairly accurate.

Today, I doodled several pages of vikings. I might turn this last one into a logo for another blog entry.

Boy, did I have a bad day today. So I made a bad inky.

I mailed my New Year's card to some friends, but the next day I got some worried phonecalls. People were checking if I was still alive. Since yesterday's card was too gloomy for them, I inked a happier version today.

Today I made this gloomy New Year's card. The text on the bottom could be translated as "a smashing New Year!"
