Studies of a man behind a shower curtain

NSFW: Nudity.

Do you ever get an image stuck in your head that you want to draw? I’ve had this one of a man half-hidden behind a shower curtain in my head for ages. But when I tried to draw it, I ended up doing five different versions of the drawing and not be entirely happy with a single one. They all have different expressions that I like, but they don’t match the vision I had in my head.

I did the first two during my break at work (I’m alone in our staff room during my breaks) with no references for anatomy. The third I did at home using a reference, which is why he turned out beefy all of a sudden. Then I tried to make a mixture between my original images and the reference.

I think I like number one and number five the best. Which one’s your favourite?

Sketching at Strömparken

We’ve got lots of parks in my city, but one of the most beautiful is Strömparken. The city has made a stream for the salmon to procreate within and I drew part of this stream, with one of the small islands rising up out of it. I’m really happy with how this sketch turned out.

But it was a miracle that I finished. It kept starting to rain, only to stop when we decided to move, only to start raining again five minutes later. There was just no winning!
