Three Marker Challenge

three marker challenge

I blindfolded myself and picked three random markers! Pale Thistle BV0000 (so damn pale), Blue Berry BV04 and REd Violet RV19-  got lucky with that color group. After a dozen sketches I ended up with this charming little fella, the red violet was just too much like fresh blood I couldn’t help myself. I also recorded the entire thing so here you go, a new video! Now with 67% less stuttering.

Inking misadventures

inking mishap

So that happened :B

Brand new bottle of FW Marine Blue all over my floor and wall. The floor is fine, the wall has a slight shine of teal, and my favorite pants are doing rounds in the washing machine. I probably have the best landlord in the universe though, no stress.

Always remember to tighten the cap guys, always.

First Page In My New Sketchbook -December 2015

skissebok-des2015

It was time for a new sketchbook, so off to the store I trudged. Usually when I have a new sketchbook between my mitts I just dive in with all the materials and make a right mess of the first page. Not this time. I felt like making this more of an exploring sketchbook, so I added a little illustration of an adventuring bunny on the start of her journey into a barren landscape instead. Where will she go? What will she see? At the very least she has a map and compass at the ready. Good luck on your journey little bunny.

Sunday Watercolor Studies

A sketch from the hill.

 

The hot summer has carried into a warm, laid back fall and Sunday it turned into a tiny adventure. Armed with my trusty sketchbook, watercolors  and thermos I went exploring the backside of my little hill.

Heh, well the thermos only lasted 10 minutes before taking it’s last breath and drenching my right side in the process. Still, after wrenching some water out of my clothing, I got some nice watercolor studies done.

Mr Alighieri Breaks for Lunch

Okay, this one is a little bit NSFW.

A friend requested a picture with the specifications : meditating lemur, limbo, mushrooms and details, which were pretty awesome specifications to work with. I’ve probably sunk between 25-30 hours into this, on and off. My take on limbo is… pretty colorful, I guess you can say. Now, where’s Dante?

Mouse Heaven

A little mouse ended it’s days in the tummy of a cat, and came to a land filled with cheese so far she could see. Hanging around mouse heaven having fun.

Northern lights

Northern lights, probably the thing I miss most from living in the north.

Every kid knows if you wave at the northern lights with a white cloth it will come and get you. The brave ones will do it anyway then leg it to a safe hiding place, like under the bed away from windows. The lights will evetnually get bored looking for them and go away, thus the kids avoid a cruel destiny.
