Boulder Sketch Jam

So finally did a sketch I submitted for the artblog at work ( I prefer to dedicate my evening time to finetuning my animations the next few week instead of doing some art, so didn't want to devote more than a night on this. I still enjoyed it, for those who are familiar with my sketchwork, this features the Samurai Unicorn I did for a daily sketch once.

As always also sharing the lineart:

And below the thumbnail image and another sketch I did:

Also did a comic page the night before..but let's just say it's terrible and leave it at that :P

Self Portrait?

This is really how I "feel", like some being that is hooked into some kind of habit that he can't get out of. All the while rats and flies are taking over my studio! :D

My friend then pointed out that one of his buddies did the exact same image a year ago! Mindblowing :) Link Also did a butt shows off my healthy cheeks.

Mythology WIP

Working on ideas for a submission to a monthly contest at work.

Sketch and Silhouette. I actually totally forgot to check silhouette until after I finished. But turns out it looks pretty good.

Studytime! Disney's Robin Hood: Silhouettes

I will devote my studytime this month to one of my favourite Disney movies: Robin Hood! First I wanted to do some silhouette studies. To really see how well it is used, and boy o boy..check these out. Almost all of them read perfectly! Wouldn't expect anything less from the 9 old men of course :P

Bday Sketch + WIP

Not really my usual style, but it's fun to experiment. My friend really loves horses ... and cows...I remember she once said she'd ride a cow if she could. Well here we go time for clean up though.

And totally unnecessary I also drew this. Made me think I might have found a style for storyboarding. All I need now is a story :P

Drawing from Life

I often sketch in pubs or cafe's before going somewhere or meeting with people, but I never really do anything with the sketches. I went of the lines to tighten things up a bit and added some tone to get something like a storyboard shot.

Here's the original sketch with my drawover:

Red Sonja II

Did another one, again messed up the proportions!! Aaargghhh, where is the zoom out function is these sketchbooks :P

This is the original drawing in greyscale:

Red Sonja: Sketch + Step By Step

I started with the red pencil sketch and drew over it with a HB pencil of an amazing photo you can find here:

I then used colorpencil to color the hair and lips, and used my Grey Promarker to tone the image. And added some tone in the background to make the image pop more.

I then imported into Photoshop to turn it into greyscale and added some color and tone on seperate layers to get the effect of the image posted on top.


I haven't been doing much for this blog in a while. All my time has been sucked up by my new job...My other blog however has been more busy than ever. If you like gestures head on over to:

In the meantime, here's a drawing of my (extremely messy) desk

Also turned it into my facebook banner:
