Different techniques

I am progressing with the course but I am not rushing too fast I am taking time practicing. And of course my normal day job takes up a lot of time during the week. I am working mostly using the ink pens and am also trying different techniques,such as charcoal it’s really nice to work with. 


This is the illustration for the day, it took me several hours and a lot of patient to create it but it was so much worth it and really fun too. 


This is the same eye as I have created using graphite pencils but here I have used charcoal, it was abit tricky but not so bad when you get the hang of it. 

It’s a new week ahead and you never know what lurks behind the bend, that’s what makes life interesting. Or as forest gump said; life is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you gonna get. I sort of like that expression. Why complicate things and plan life to the minute, when you can just take it for what it is and simplify it. 


As long as I get my coffee every day I am in heaven he he

Illustrating has never been more fun!

Hello again,

I am now a few weeks into the course and I have to say that it is so much fun. Don’t think I have spent so much drawing in a very long time. There is a lot of practice involved but that’s how to do it, and I better practice controlling those lines.

To become an illustrator you need to invest a lot of hours practicing with your pens, I simply love getting lost in what I do with the pens, and I really love working in the old fashioned way however, I will eventually get into the digital way of drawing as well and get one of those pads you can draw on which you connect to your computer. I am exited about that actually.

Here you see a selection of different drawings that I have been working on this week, and the purpose has been to control the lines with the ink pen, except for the eye drawing, here I have simply been practicing on getting the details right.

I still have a few sections to go through before it’s time for the first assignment, so I’d better mosy on as they say. I will be back again with more updates on the progress.
