I am a artist from Norway who works towards becoming a recognized illustrator and concept designer. I have many years ahead of me, and a lot to learn but, Im happy to upload what Ive done.

I also like to play guitar and express my self whenever I can

Hello guys! Here is a little personal update on what Im working on. Im trying to save much of the energy of this personal project and not revealing to much. Afraid to get to much immediate gratification hehe :) So Im not gonna say to much right now
It works to decorate my workspace with the original drawings:) Makes me feel inspired to continue the work. I feel that original drawings have a certain energy to them that is very hard to replicate digitally. Im taking a pic of the art like this to give you guys an insight in my new processes. 

Working with smaller format like the small drawings on the side is a new good way work quickly. Its Almost like a storyboard, like playing with frames of the story, rearranging them and trying out different ideas to page layouts:)

My tools for the moment has been a very nice set of Promarkers. Ive never worked with them before so Im really exited about working with them now. They look almost digital colors, because they bleed into the pager in a very unique way making everything look very seamless. I have bought different shades of gray both warm and cold, sandstone, vanilla, dusky pink and blossom pink! Great for coloring flowers! ;) 

Ive been working with a new white marker called a GellyRoll, they are perfect for creating highlights and reflections! Ive been kind of interested in working as much traditional as possible before my digital process starts, with the GellyRoll I can kind of do a cmd+Z while working with pen to, it creates a little layer of white on the top of the paper.

The hand with the little key is one of several inspiration, kind of physical mood pieces I keep near my work space, Ive also bought a very nice deck of Art Nuveau Tarot cards that Im looking at for some inspiration too.

Ive been working with a new set of pencils to. TOISON DÓR is a expensive set of pencils that I buy in a shop called norway designs, where I also buy my sketch books and stuff.
I find these pencils to be as good as any other but Im very snobbish when it comes to this shit;) Ive also bought a really good set of FaberCastle pens.

Ive also bought a nice designer ruler and knife there too. Right now in my life, I feel so invested in my art that I would like to have some nice tools to go with it. Makes me feel inspired to work and motivated to draw. Now this is arguably a more healthy kind of materialism than in other sense of the word I think. Because I am really Passionate about  good materials and quality paper and Ive been interested in creating my own books from scratch, with hardcovers bound like old books used to be.

This is of course not everything that inspires me to draw, but it helps me to develop the stuff you see here on DA :)

These anatomy Sheets have been cut out from a cool imagine FX magazine I bought some years ago. I try to keep the anatomy in mind when I work.  Im lousy at using references I tend to want to build my characters with no other point of reference than my imagination. Its useful then to have some structure in my characters, to know where certain muscles are and so forth. Especially drawing feet, I will never get that shit going for me. so I need this to look at sometimes :)

Its also esthetically cool to have a bunch of drawings like this surrounding you, feels like I'm some crazy 16th century artist/scientist, when in reality I'm just all about drawing those know. ;) 

Ive also made a little map over my pro markers in the top left of the pic, it helps when Im considering coloring something so I don't choose wrong intensity or darkness :)

Hope y'all think this looks cool! and are interested in where Im going with this personal project!
