The process of thought

Uti Vår Hage by Krister Petersson is one of my favorite swedish comics, so I decided to draw the main character, Faló.

He usually looks like this:

Uti Vår Hage

Eh, yeah, more or less. (image courtesy of

So anyways, I sketched him. He looked very much like a alcoholic, but it was still a very nice sketch. So I inked it (which I haven't done to any drawing in a long while now), and I finally feel very comfortable inking again. And last I coloured it. Now, why am I telling you this?

Well, because I wanted to point the notable, and very nice difference between every step. Look here:


It's interesting, now when I'm done, to see all the changes I made. I actually think it's important to change something all the time, otherwise you just end up tracing and lose all the energy in the drawing.

Anyway, enough ranting about that. I might post a bigger version of the coloured one later.

Last but not least, here's a drawing of Hanna:


I can't even DESCRIBE how hard it was to do this, and I didn't like it when I was done. Hell, I wasn't even going to post it (I never post things I'm not satisfied with), but then I made a slight alteration, and now I really like it. Like, really.

A morning filled with 400 billion suns

Lots of random things, some half-ass, and some good that I'll probably ink and colour later:

And this is Dayna, whom gave me permission to draw her naked, thank you very much:

I wanna take the time to stop and think

Elastigirl, from Pixar's The Incredlibles, for Mike's art jam.

I'm feeling a bit unused to my tablet and Painter 11 right now, so I decided not to ink it properly. Plus, I kinda like the sketchy feeling.

Why not be utterly changed into fire?

First of all, sorry for not posting a lot lately. I've been having some computer problems, and had to replace my mother board and reinstall windows a couple of times, so... yeah. But I'm back now.

I've started reading Hanteringen av odöda ('Handling the undead') by Johan Ajvide Lindqvist, and I'm really liking it so far. In one chapter (don't worry, I'm not gonna spoil much), an old guy called Mahler decides - after thousands of dead have awaken again all over Stockholm - to dig up his recently decease grandson and see if he, too, has awaken. In a frenzy, he digs up the entire grave with his bare hands, and suddenly realize how hard it is to get the coffin up.

And also that he might not even get HIMSELF up from the hole he's dug.

That scene gave me plenty of images in my head, so I decided to do a really quick sketch.

Feels nice to be drawing again.
