twilight fan art.

hahahaa.. i think it looks kind of odd! well, for quite some time i was utterly obsessed with the TWILIGHT books by stephenie meyer, and i have been working on this for a very long time - not so much in drawing time, but date time. i wanted to do this in watercolours, but over time and time of resting my arm i wanted to try finishing it in photoshop, because i got pretty bored with the watercolour. i used a screenshot from the movie as my reference, wanting this to be an experiment with finding the right colours. i was still aiming for that when photoshop took over, but i couldnt make everything as dark as they're supposed to be, so it's not that accurate. and the whole thing looks kind of weird. it was also an experiment with mixed media - watercolours and photoshop. haha. in a way it looks exactly how i wanted it to, and in a way it doesnt look anything like it at all. i like it - and i dont like it.
hahaha.. but it was fun to draw.

denise and bjørn.

my cousin commisioned a portrait of her and her boyfriend for christmas, if it wasn't too much for my arms. and it seems it wasn't that bad actually :) doing nothing all day long for many days apparently works!

sometimes i've been asked how i colour my drawings, and to me it's always fun to see how people work. so this time i remembered to save some of the steps in the making, though in this particular case there weren't too many changes.

unfinished business.

a short while ago i went looking for an old drawing i once did inspired by my work experiences as a costumer consultant for a phone company, but i didnt find it. but i know it's here somewhere.. nevertheless, i got to look through a bunch of my old sketch books and found a surprising number of long forgotten (and in some cases unfinished) drawings. so i figured, since i dont have anything "new" to show, i could post some of those! - i am actually in the middle of a new drawing, but i can only draw a very little at a time with this tennis elbow of mine, so it's coming along quite slowly... but.. someday..

okay, this one i did during my stay at kunsthøjskolen i holbæk

and these two i did during the very first of days when i moved to viborg

i have no idea when this was done, but i just love the tree! i think i have a thing for trees.

and this one is based on a song by MUGISON called "hold on to happiness". the lyrics are included. i love that song.

and one more drawing without a face

also from the beginning of the viborg days

and these were experiments. at the time i was not satisfied, but now i think they're kinda cool.

and i dont know when this is from - but i'm guessing 2007-something.
