Ballpoint Pen Sketches


My Instagram‘s a strange beast, I’ve found. So many of my fully finished illustrations barely get seen, but something as simple as these ballpoint pen sketches get tons of time. Perhaps these are simply more eye-catching on the phone compared to something more complex like my first...

Sketch of a grumpy Nyx


Playing around with Procreate app again – I do love their pencil tools. This one turned out rather dark, but it’s still quite clearly a very grumpy Nyx. Low-key anger seems to be her default expression when she’s not around Nyssa: There are  many grumpy Nyx in my...

A sketch of Nyssa’s new hair style


A sketch I did to figure out Nyssa’s new hair style. Nyssa’s a character who changes her hair often.  She’s gentry and gifted in the secret arts, so she has both the ability and the interest to change her style often. She enjoys staying up to date with the latest fashion; but...

Yes, it’s definitely time to stop these. They were fun, I learned a lot, but I am getting burned out and want to do some more complete and complicated work, which this format doesn’t allow.
And here, number fifty!

See you next project!

Daily Art 19.03. – 25.03.2018


For the picture above, i took a work in progress and added enough to work as a daily art. I miss doing more complex work.  It’s probably time to finish the daily arts and look for another art project to do until the comic is good to go. But I want this streak to go to fifty first. Fifty is a...

Daily Art 05.03. – 11.03.2018


Of all the influences to pop up in my art, I really did not expect to see Dragonball Z to pop up. Oh well, it had some serious great grumpy faces, gotta admit that. And tiny me though DB was the best thing ever. You can see how the next week is shaping up in real time with individual commentary...

Nyssa’s design is finally beginning to click. Still a few things that need changing, but she’s finally hanging together. I think tying her horn into her hair line makes all the difference. She’s supposed to look a bit creepy and out of the world – great beauties often do...

  Still trying to figure out Nyssa. Her horn is giving me a bit of grief, love how the eyes in the image above turned out. I have to admit the last streak had better art, but I also really, really want to nail down their designs. You can see how the next week is shaping up in real time with...

Daily Art 12.02. – 18.02.2018


Losing steam, despite this being the first week after the forced break. I learned a lot from these streaks, but perhaps a different approach is required? I don’t seem to improve right now. You can see how the next week is shaping up in real time with individual commentary on my instagram...
