Dream dealer. Where I once left off and what I added in less than an hour. This is a piece I started a long time ago, kind of embarrassing how many of these I have laying around. I’ve decided I wanted to finish some of these even though my skill has progressed since, I enjoyed to see how just some small tweaks and fixes I’ve learned along the way made it look better. It’d probably look better if I completely redrew it but yeah I think this helps me work up my own way of adding that final touch on an image.
I remember using a photo for reference for the womans face and hairstyle, but I sadly don’t have that file and therefor can’t remember the name of that photographer anymore. If you do recognize this face/hair then link me up so I can give credit where credit is due.
Not very original I guess, but aside from my desk my next favourite place is my bed. I’ve always been living small, loads of books and stuff scattered about the place but it has always been all squeezed into a small area. Therefor my bed has always served as a sofa, i literally did everything aside from sleeping in it at a point when I was studying at the university. I would fall asleep in this other old worn out sofa cause I couldn’t feel at ease when I tried to sleep in my own bed. Today I can though, I love just cuddling into my big pillows that serves as backrest when my bed is in “sofa mode” together with a book or just laying down listening to music.
Felt fun to paint something that isn’t a portrait, need to do more studies like this.

So this blog has been too quiet for a while, sorry about that. I’ve been traveling around in my various homes (home is where the heart is) and working on commisions (will post them here after x-mas since they are gifts and I don’t want to risk ruin the surprise)
So what is new then? Well I got myself a Samsung galaxy tablet which I am starting to sketch a lil on. Plan is to use it for studies and sketches when I travel around and don’t want to carry my pc with me.
So here are the few portraits I’ve made during this time:
#208, self portrait using Photoshop.
#209, self portrait using Sketchbook Pro and Samsung galaxy note tablet.
#210, self portrait using Sketchbook Pro and Samsung galaxy note tablet.
