"Pothead"

Digital, Corel Painter, 2013

I created a piece this summer, called "War is here", on a commission from the band REPAY and this piece started out as the first sketch/draft/version and was rejected. I saved the sketch and just recently reworked it into what it is now.











"COUGH"

Digital speedpainting in Corel Painter, 2013.

This started out as a quick sketch, just to break away from some other stuff that I had been doing. so ambition was just to relax and have fun. As you can see in the video, I don't really have a plan and I change direction several times.

Digital painting, Corel Painter, 2013

Made a portrait of myself. I usually hesitate to do so, because it sort of stirs up my insecurity a bit, but it's always good to get out of one's comfortzone.

If you want me to make one of these for you, from a photo of your choice, then let me know. I'm currently back to doing digital portraits on commission for a while. They are 40$ a piece. I've set out to do 20, so hurry up and order one if you are interested. You can choose the format/size, but the default setting I use is 50x70cm at 150 dpi.

I have fans...

These images found their way to me the other day. Seems that my piece, "The babysitter", has managed to permanently tocuh people in the way of tattooes. Really cool and flattering.

Needs a title

Digital, Corel Painter, 2013

I have no clue what this one is about, and I really can't come up with a clever title either,
Experimented a lot with different brushes and kept it very dark intentionally.

Mongo Lloyd

Digital, Corel painter

Lately I haven't been able to produce much. Kinda been suffering from a case of bad confidence after failing a series of attempts at producing a specific commissioned piece. So, with this one I took all pressure off myself and tried to keep it very loose and experimental. Focused more on a dramatic light than actual detail and shapes. I'm happy with it and feel eager to get back into a more productive mode.

The Venus Flytrap

Acrylic on canvas, 2013

I have a hard time doing anything else than characters and faces, so the goal was to paint an object of some sort. Instead of a still life painting of an apple or a vase with flowers, I decided to something more vulgar yet not pornographic. I strived for the photorealistic quality, yet trying to keep a certain clean estethic and then also adding a touch of humor with the flies and the title. I was actually gonna call it "The Juicer" and have some dripping action in there, but in the end it was better this way.

Going home

Digital, Corel Painter

This is a simple piece that I made as a small tribute to an old furry friend who passed away the other week.

Mutt

Digital, Corel Painter

Not too satisfied with this piece. I do like some of the textures and spatter, and also the head and neck is cool, but I'm mostly bothered by the lack of contrasting colors and some of the less dynamic values. In the end I grew tired of trying to figure out how to fix these issues and just left it like this instead.
