Just spent a few days in Trondheim attending a 3-day course. Spent some of the in-between minutes to sketch.
Plane at gate 35 Værnes Airport.
Think this guys name was El Hassan. He joked about originating from Karasjokk. So I just called him Karasjokk. The good fellow didn’t seem to mind.
Two of the statues on the facade of Nidarosdomen.
Digging into the books
A jolly old gang of men enjoying breakfast at the hotel.
This guy had a full beard and scruffy hair. Good subject.
Nothing goes unseen by mother hen.
Statue of the famous violin player Arve Tellefsen.
Enoying the little things
Decided to try my luck at a ink portrait. I drew the underlying structure with pencil in about 5 minutes and gave the inking a go. I’m happy with the result.
Continuing in the style of cartooning is the sketch of a shifty Persian Merchant in two different outfits.
Unfinished cartoon lineart of myself as a Matador.
Work in progress of my latest drawing done in pointilism style. I need to increase the tonal contrast to make the elements pop. And there is also a bit of detail-work left before I round it up.
A Wild Turkey walks into a bar..
Haven’t really been up to snuff lately. Lots of scribbles that deserves no room on the internet. Luckily, from all of this emerged this proud Wild Turkey. I was initially initerested in the bird after seeing a documentary where a man raised a flock of these.
5 hours on cheap drawing paper, Derwent Graphic pencils.
You talkin’ to ME!?
30 minute sketch of Team Fortress 2′s Scout.
Yet another DotA 2 portrait. Lucifer sketched in 30 minutes. I might step it a bit further and do a watercolor painting based on the sketch.
Another tribute to DotA 2. The coldest of all heroes – Ancient Apparition. Took me about 2,5 hours. I’m pretty happy with the results, but I overworked a bit towards the end.
Next up is a quick pencil portrait of Ambrose Burnside. I actually learned from this that the term ‘sideburns’ comes from this fellow. Salute!
Again a tribute to DotA 2. Quick(about 10 minutes) drawing of Dazzle the Shadow Priest. It’s a simple foundation drawing for a watercolor painting, so it is based more on shapes, rather than form and volume. Watercolor version to come, hopefully tomorrow.
