I have been changing my blog's layout many times lately but I believe I will be settling with this one for a while. Being indecisive for the win... not ;)

Today I saw a photograph of a shibu ina, a beautiful japanese dog and I instantly felt like drawing it :) eventually it ended in a small dog-drwaing fest, haha.

I used photo references to draw these. :)

Next one is based on my dog Spike! And doggie treats my grandma gave for me to give him, haha.
And some of you must know this next one... since I was drawing dogs, it only felt natural to doodle a picture of my favourite image on the entire internet. (Close second place is this but I'm not likely to draw it. :<)
Quick small works like these are so much fun to draw! :) Though right now I'm working on something hopefully a tad bigger ;)
See ya!

I had a rather busy day today but I still managed to "paint" this one hour doodle :)

Inspiration came from detail picture of Philippe Lallemand's portrait of Charles Perrault - especially the palette he used. I love the armospheric yet luminous earthy tones he used. Though obviously in the begining I also used it as a face reference :)

I also used an old sketch of a bird I did back in Goteborg as a reference, so I can't really say what species was it supposed to be exactly, heh heh... 

Obviously I'm happy to be back to working on my big ol' computer instead of my tiny laptop ;) so much more comfortable, gee. :)

Until next time!

Quick works

I'm finally moved and settled at my usual place! My flat underwent some serious rebuilding so it took a while, but now it's super awesome and I'm loving it. It took a bit of time to get everything in the right place but now I feels comfortable enough for me to stop rearranging stuff and draw! :) Which resulted in two quick pieces done in Photoshop.

First one was a very quick, 1 hour warm-up, a while of which was spent making custom brushes which I never really did before but boy, was I a fool not to!
It was fun drawing a bearded dwarf - especially since it's not something from my usual repertoir of characters :)

The dwarf approves.

I also felt inspired to create a children illustration and I really enjoyed making it! It was the first time actually doing something like that and I think I'm hooked.

Yay, all the colors of the rainbow. ;)

I'm a little ill (common cold in mid-August, gosh) so my mind refuses to come up with anything more to add... sorry!

Anyway, I hope you liked it!
