Practise my wacom skills

I really like my painting sofware, I use the Clip Studio Paint ❀

I just hit it tonight and went ahead with no sketch and a green surface and pretended it was a painting, like I usually do when I paint with acrylics or oil paint πŸ™‚ I think I like this way of working so I will probably try out this a few more times during my winter break that is coming up.


I realise when looking at it now that I probably could have worked a bit more with the contrasts πŸ˜› I will have to go back checking it out tomorrow again and see what I think. I did this kind of fast, I think I used like just above an hour to do it, so time-wise I think it is going better and better πŸ™‚


Have a nice weekend ❀




A gift


Yesterday when a friend came over she brought a gift for me ❀


I am in love ❀ Out of all brush pens I have tried so far this i the best one, AND I can refill it! It’s the Zig Kuretake Brush pen ❀

I had a drawing laying aorund so I tried it out and hten I washed some FW acrylic inks over since it was an underwater drawing πŸ™‚


This was my first try with this brush pen sooo more to come later on, I did a few more small drawings later last night and those felt a bit more controlled with the lines and all ❀






I did it! I pushed throught he whole of inktober! ❀

I am already thinking of next year, I am going to make my own list or keep to a theme πŸ™‚

I was brainstorming with a friend yesterday what could be the next thing..and I have been thinking about my problem with hands…. and she was like HANDSEMBER…

That could be a thing ❀





Prepping for class



Prepping for art class tomorrow with my students ❀

They are making their own picture design for travel mugs, last step is to actually put it on an actual travel mug πŸ˜‰

I can promise an after picture in time ❀




Last inktober


I think I’m close to when I gave up inktober last year.

This year I feel I will be able to do it! Though other things are on my mind this year. Last year it was to do or not to do and this year it is doing it or doing it A+.

This last week I had many things going on so I had to catch up a bit on inktober when the weekend came…so a bit rushed perhaps but I pulled through and I like my small drawings with ink, but then I start thinking about how they should be bigger and I should put more work to it. Well I guess there is always something, right?!

And if I put my all to inktober next year with my own grade of A+ on everything…I wonder what I will compare that to….yepp we’ll see!

Bottom line….you can ALWAYS do more, so be proud of what you actually do πŸ™‚

Wow almost sounded like some kind of wisdom there, I’m turning 30 next year so I EXPECT the wisdom to just rain down πŸ˜‰


Good night ❀


Checking in :)

Blog, Creativity, Scribbles

I am settling in to my new job, everything just feels like home, like I know what I am doing. But I also feel I have had so much more energy by not comuting as far as I did the two last years.

Below are a few pictures from sketch book and well I just had to throw in two pictures of my coffee cup, if you follow me on instagram you are probably aware of my many coffee cup pictures πŸ˜‰




I also walking around with thought on october and the event inktober. Last year I didn’t make until the end, but I think I can do it this year πŸ˜€


I started thinking about maybe doing a character I could follow up during the month of drawings, below are my first try πŸ™‚


Well, we’ll see where it all goes when it starts ❀

During the week I suspect I will be all about my job with a few late night drawings. I am actually doing this study-thing on wednesdays, where I will learn how to start and manage my own company πŸ˜‰ And on thursdays I have jumped into yoga, the kind of tyle is named “Viraya”, so there you go and few happenings to get out there during the week and the goal: always to draw a little bit more πŸ˜‰


Have a nice week!
