Happy New Year!

I wish all of you lovely people a very happy new year. I have a feeling it's going to be a great one! <3

Museum Characters

Everytime I do this, I love it and I remind myself to do it more often. People always tell you to sketch people from life but you know how it goes, I rarely do. And it's always a challenge, especially in a museum were people move around change there positions and don't stay in the same place for a long time...The way I do it is that I look at the person, try do remember as many things about the general stature, postition and key features. Then I sketch it quickly and the people are usually gone by then. When I am home I then use these basic sketches and go over them in pen to give them more character and finish them from imagination.
I espcially like the guy on the bottom left ;)

Pink Girl

I really can't seem to get the proportions right. It's bugging me, I see that it's not right but I don't seem to be able to change it...:O It was more a sketch to test the polychromos a bit and maybe a study for an upcoming piece, who knows, I seem to stumble on a lot of ideas lately :O

Avant Garde Hat

So apart from the fact that the proportions of the face are clearly wrong I like this concept. Maybe I'll revisit it sometime :)

Christmas Vacation

Hey everyone! I'm so sorry for not being able to post these past few days. I'm home for the holidays and promptly fell sick so it has been super exhausting and stressful (but also very nice ;) ) I hope you forgive me and I'll catch you guys up soon! :)

Late night sketching

Detailed architectual elements combined with faces more figurative parts is definetely something I would like to explore further :D

Soooo, I'm sorry for my absence lately. I've been traveling and it's hard to keep up the schedule then. It's going to be busy these next few weeks, so have patience with me :)
It was drawn on a train so it's a bit wobbly but can't you imagine a whole castle in this kind of style? It would be amazing! :O

Cafe Characters

They don't really come across here I don't think, but I love these little studies. I think they really capture my style in a way, I don't know what to do with them though, in terms of a bigger piece...
