Fading


We alter ourselves all the time,
There's no room for imperfections,
You need to be smooth, perfect, plastic

We're fading...

A result of seeing too much lately about plastic babes, botox given to kids. We end up being this "photoshopped" version of ourselves.
I think we kind of fade.

Made with graphite pencils.

Old drawings refound


I finally went through some of my many drawing folders. I knew I had lots of unfinished larger drawings from when we lived in Østerbro. I almost forgot this one, though at the time I started it I really liked how it was going.

After receiving a lovely message from Nihrida the other day I realised I need to get back to graphite once in a while too. I don't know why I stopped using it, I think I just got caught up in all the other mediums available all of a sudden. Graphite pencils and cheap printer paper were where it all started for me. Very simple yet effective.

I finally started using the drawing table bought some time back. I just realise now I should have had a drawing table long ago. It makes it so much easier to work on these large drawings and I don't have to be as careful bending the edges since I'm not curled up at the sofa.

Colours on a grey day


It's not the greatest day for me, just one of these days you'd like to sleep through.

I decided to pick up on the little doll ACEO's I started some months back. The purple/pink one I did today the others are from some time back.
Nothing big, they are just relaxing to do when you don't want to work on any major drawings.

ACEO stands The ACEO measure 2.5x3.5 inches (64x89mm)for Art Cards, Editions and Originals and are very collectible.

If you are an artists and haven't tried creating an ACEO yet I really think you should, it's much fun and a challenge to get the necessary detail into such little space.

Gothic Heart Doll and Graphite Day Result



This is the Gothic Heart Doll Pinup I mentioned a few days back. I had lots of fun drawing her.
She's made with colour pencils and is 21x29.7 cm (8x11")

I used the pose of this great stock: link

Yesterday I posted the tools to my graphite day. I did get quite a bit done on the drawing:

I stopped it thought as I got a lovely fairy commission I wanted to get started on.
I will post the result of the little girl when I complete it :)

Graphite Drawing Day - Tools

Today I am drawing with graphite pencils. It's been a very long time since I did that, I've decided today is dedicated to the medium.

Here's my tools:


The reference belongs to this stock: link - same girl I used for my Innocent Eyes portrait a while back. She's absolutely beautiful and I look forward portraying her.

I'm exited to see how far I can get with this drawing today, as I am a bit rusty with graphite and it never was a fast medium for me.

Benjamin and Balloo and so humid

It's so incredible humid here today :/ Even if you sit still and draw it's still too hot. They say we will get colder weather now and less humid - yay for that. Means I can get back to running without dying of heat too, I am so exited to continue where I left.

I started a Gothic Heart Doll Pinup drawing yesterday. I don't know what it is but I have fire in my pencils these days. It feels good. I feel into everything these days, colours, charcoals, pastel... wish I could do it all at once =)
I also want to decorate everything here - definitely means it's spring for me.

Benjamin and Balloo

I did this drawing of my brother some weeks back.
The drawing is special to me as it's of my little brother Benjamin and his Jack Russell, Balloo. It shows a different side that not too many see of my brother, the softer side.

To me he has always been this this cute little baby boy and now he is 17 and I sometimes wonder where time went...
This is a dedication to him, for being so caring, sweet and lots of fun to be around.

I took a photo of him and Balloo late at night some months ago with my phone. It turned out all grainy but I loved the pose and mood so much I wanted to do a drawing of it and give it to him.

It's done with charcoal and is 21x29.7cm (8x11")

My lovely break + Stargazer Fairy


Yesterday I went back home, leaving this lovely evening sun and nature behind. I really had an amazing time. I was able to forget about work for a while and all the many thoughts I had in my head. Sometimes you just need to completely be off the every day life for a while and I surely did. It was great spending time with my mom, dad, brothers and sister. We were all able to spend the first weekend together which doesn't happen very often as we all live far apart.

I wasn't the only one relaxing in the garden:


I completed the drawing this morning, Stargazer Fairy.
As I mentioned along with the previews I felt it was a long time since I did a fairy and being Spring here I found it suitable with the spring colours :)

Fairy Inspiration



Still enjoying my time here at my parents house. The weather is still great, raining once in a while. I actually found my motivation a bit yesterday =) been a while since I did a fairy so I started this little fairy, she's already coloured a bit by now, she's in blue tones.

This cutie were sleeping next to me yesterday when I was on the phone. It was raining softly but we found a dry spot under a tree. Did I mention how much I love being here?
