A Blue Wave

I had such a blast picking up the acrylic paint again in my last session, so I decided to have another go at it right away. Using acrylics I find that a looser style seem to suit my technique best, as I struggle to paint close details and make well blended color. Anyway, I really…

Back to painting!

It’s been a while since my last painting session. A lot longer since my last painting session using acrylic paint. So I decided to pick up my palette knife again. I didn’t really have a plan for what I was going to paint, I just wanted to use the medium again. So I spent a…

Something close to a Cheetah

I've never really drawn a cat before. I've had a go or two using a cartoonish style, but not one where I've tried to get the anatomy and proportions right. This is neither a cat or dog, but kind of a cat, I guess. It's something close to a cheetah. This is the pen sketch:…

A Curious Bear

I've never drawn a bear before. Despite their massive posture, there just don't seem to be a lot of features behind that big fur. I found a bear in one of my tutorial drawing books, though, and decided to have a go at it. This is how it looked: Considered this is my very first…

A relaxing giraffe

Giraffes are the tallest mammals on Earth. Their legs alone are taller than many humans. They can run as fast as 35 miles an hour over short distances, or cruise at 10 mph over longer distances. A giraffe's neck is too short to reach the ground. As a result, it has to awkwardly spread its…

Some kind of rodent

I'm on a real animal marker drawing safari at the moment. I've never spent much time drawing animals, but I find it really interesting. The anatomy is so different compared to humans, and there's something unique about every animal. This is some kind of rodent I found in a tutorial book and decided to have…

A blue zebra

I wanted to draw a blue zebra, so I drew a blue zebra. The eyes are dark and kind of scary, which was not my intention. The thin pen lines make it all a bit more interesting, though. I decided to add them the day after I considered it finished, but wasn't really that pleased…

Mugs, mugs, mugs..

I've seen some other people do it in my area, so I decided to have a go at it myself. I'm talking about getting some of my work printed on some mugs. I did some searching on the internet, and decided to go with the company Smartphoto for my order. I did the design work…

A horse in gallop

As I mentioned in my last post, it felt really nice picking up the pens and markers again. In the last six months I've spent most of my spare time doing watercolour paintings, which has been a blast. I've seemed to have forgotten, though, how fun other mediums can be as well. So I decided…

A marker rhinoceros

I've been spending a lot of time watercolour painting the last six months. Simply because it's so challenging and so much fun! What I recently discovered, though, is how fun it is to do a marker drawing once in a while. It's quick, easy to manage in regards of supplies and very therapeutic when it…
