Spectrum 17 - Mooseman

I managed to get one image in this years Spectrum book! It was inspired from the winter landscapes around lake TÃ¥kern back home in Sweden. The drawing was done with pencil on paper, I then did the "inking" and colouring digitaly.

One year later and this inked version of the drawing seems quite weak. It was a fun experiment though.

I might try again for Spectrum 18 if I can find anything worth sending...

More comic book experiments

I've been playing around more with inks. Bought myself a crowquill pen and some nibs. It gives surprisingly good line control. The solid blacks are filled in with japanese brushpen and then the pictures are scanned and coloured in Photoshop. I also used photoref more than I normally do. This allowed me to focus more on style rather than the design of the characters.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

I did quite a bit of concept art for the film 'Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time' back in 2008-09. It was a fun project as I was asked to do both storyboarding and mood studies aswell as more polished artwork to help define the look of the visual effects of the film.

There is alot more to see over at my website:

On the cemetery island in Venice

Its been getting steadily warmer here and its now possible to stand outside and sketch again (finally!)

This one was done in Amsterdam at easter. It was cold and rainy. We were waiting for a bus.

Im not sure about this paper. It gives a nice texture but its very tricky to control the ink.
It was very cheap though...

Soldiers leaving London

A few weeks ago I saw a small exhibition of Arthur Ranson's art down at Orbital Comics here in London. It was really inspiring to see such nice comicbook art in its original size. I decided to have another go at doing a small project with comicbook techniques. These are all pencil and ink on paper. Inking is very difficult and as you can see I still have alot to learn...

Paris rooftops

These rooftops need some colour. Question is, should it be daytime or nighttime?

Here is a bonus samurai:

Viking ship

My colleagues and I decided to make a little list of things we could sketch when there is time between projects etc. First up was " A viking or pirate -ship at sea"
For the next one I shall do some thumbnails first to help make the composition less boring.
Here is Philippe's version.

Plane crash

One day when I was bored I asked my good friend Philippe "What shall I paint? I have no imagination today. Help me! What shall I do?!"

"A plane that has crashed in the mountains" he replied.

Turned out to be quite fun. The top images are pen and ink composition thumbnails on thin wobbly paper. The image below is digital.
