A colourful goat

It's back to the animal drawings again, and this time it's all about the goat. I've never drawn a goat before, but I found one in a tutorial book I bought a few years ago and basically just tried to copy it's main features. First by pencil, then by pen. The pen drawing turned out…

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 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…

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…

It became a marker bouquet

In my last post I showed a bouquet i drew, using a fine liner pen. It looked like this: An ink bouquet When I drew it, I was sure I would splash some watercolour on it. Just putting in some vibrant colours and hope for the best. After it was done, though, I got the…

A day at the beach

A sunny pastime

Sitting by my work table one day, not quite knowing what to do, I started on a little doodle on my drawing paper. It started with some cars and people, then a palm tree and suddenly there was the ocean as well. It became clear that this was a drawing of one of those warm…

Trees, trees, trees!

I've been reading a book about drawing techniques lately, and one of the assignments was to draw different types of trees. I got very inspired, and decided this would be a day dedicated to tree drawing. Learning to do it as well as possible. So I set to work. First by drawing quick sketches of…
