Fanart: Credence Barebone

Thought I was done with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them? Hardly! I have plenty of more ideas to draw for this fandom. But the second drawing I did was of Credence Barebone, who looks a bit too happy to be him, I’ll admit. The hair also makes me wince, but I do think it’s a nice portrait. The shadowing in the face and eyes are really pleasing to me.

Drawing: Newt Scamander

When I finally saw Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them I was so completely charmed that I had to fanart for it! I love how my Newt Scamander turned out, but I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to run out of petroleum blue when you’ve got half the coat left to colour and all art shops are closed…

Sketch: Gamla Linköping

We carpooled to the neighbour town to sketch their old town. It was freezing, so I spent the first hour just touristing before I forced myself to sit down and get some sketching done. It was a first for me to draw with gloves on and I think that’s why the sketch ended up so lopsided. This was a charming pavillion belonging to one of the cafés, and I just had to colour because I loved the combination of green and red.

Drawing: Woman

I drew this at the same occasion as Kupolen, but it’s drawn freely from imagination. Originally it was supposed to be just an ink pen drawing, but one of the other members suggested I colour it and I did when I got home. It turned out rather nice. I’m starting to like doing shadowing with ink pen and then colour it with promarkers. It creates a rather fetching look.

Drawing: Self-Portrait

I realised that it’s been a while since I did a self-portrait, so I decided to do one.


My mum’s response to this was: “You’re cuter in real life,” but I still think I’ve managed to capture the likeness. It also made me realise just how boring I keep my hair, all neat and tidy. I need to mess it up a bit, haha. Make it more interesting.

Drawing smiling people are hard, though. I think I need to do some exercises with different facial expressions, just to get away from my default serious drawing subjects.

Inktober 2016: Day 8-14

Day 8: Hot tea and cosy knits


This is an idea I’ve had in my head for a while, and since fall has really made an entrance this past week I decided to finally realise my idea. It’s time to bring out the hot tea and cosy knits! This might be one of my favourite drawings I’ve done for Inktober yet.

Day 10: Uterus


My Monday was devoted to doctor’s appointments about my uterus and ovaries, so I did an anatomical drawing of an uterus and ovaries for day 10. It depicts the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovarian follicles. I think it turned out quite cool.

Day 11: Angel


I was just going to do a quick, simple angel, I told myself. Then I kept adding details and working on it. It looks like a complete picture and I’m pleased with my line work. I watched a video by Alphonso Dunn on how to ink clouds and it turned out really well. They also helped to picture feel more balanced.

Day 12: Well from the cemetery


As I said, I’ve wanted to revisit the well from this sketch. Since I still had the reference picture on my phone, I re-did it and I think it turned out much better this time around. I wish I hadn’t done the tree to the left, though, and instead had drawn in some more clouds.

Day 13: Hedwig


I’ve wanted to draw a picture of Hedwig from Harry Potter since forever, so I figured Inktober might be a kick in the butt I needed to get it done. I used some Japanese ink I have for the background and, while I don’t think it’s visible, I coloured her eye yellow using promarker.

Day 14: Rabbit


One of my mates from the Urban Sketchers tipped me off about Alphonso Dunn’s tutorials on YouTube, so I’ve been watching a couple of them. I wanted to try out drawing some texture with ink and decided on fur for this fat little rabbit. It turned out rather well… for a while.

While I love Inktober, I kind of miss colours. So I went ahead and ruined my hard work by adding colours to the drawing. And my scanner hates green, I’ve come to realise.

Drawing: Jamie Fraser

So, by the end of September I finished my drawing of Jamie Fraser. I’m really pleased with how it turned out.


As I’m more of a bookish girl, I decided to base the drawing more on how Jamie is described in the books. Therefore he has blue eyes, etcetera. For some reason I gave him a beard. I’m sure Claire’s glaring at him and telling him to shave, haha.

It was my first time drawing a beard and it was more difficult than I’d imagine, but it did turn out rather well. I’m really happy with this image. There’s some really nice details – the brooch, the hair, his eyes… I’m really pleased.

Inktober 2016, Day 1-7

Through one of the new members in our Urban Sketchers group, I learnt about Inktober and thought I’d give it a shot. I’m not sure I’ll be able to participate through the whole month, as I’m starting a new job on the 18th and will be dead tired for the first couple of weeks.

But until then I’ll try to do an ink drawing every day. I’ll post them each Saturday until I catch up with the drawings for September, then I’ll do an entry ever Monday with my Inktober drawings. Maybe not all of them. I’ll save my urban sketches for Sundays still 😉 That’s why some days will be missing from these entries.

Day 1: Pirate Wench


I started off Inktober by cheating a little, using ProMarkers as well as ink pen. Though, since I wanted the inking to be the focus, I used ProMarkers to form simple colour blocks. I regret the background so, so much. The scanner has also done poorly on reproducing the colours – the bandana and skirt are not yellow, but lime green. I didn’t notice until now when I sat down to post this. I’ll redo it later.

As you can see, I got to use one of my sketches from the figure drawing event for this image. I plan to revisit this character again for Inktober.

Day 3: Staircase


For day three, I finished an old drawing I had laying about. I began sketching this staircase back in July, when I was in Scania, and it’s from the house I was staying in. Marble stairs are scary to walk in, but striking to look at.

I’m fond of the textures in this one.

Day 4: Cat


I was feeling a bit tired and uninspired, so I decided to keep it very simple for day four and draw a tabby. It’s been a while since I drew a cat and I think it turned out really cute.

Day 5: Dandelion


Not the most creative picture I’ve ever drawn, but I think it turned out rather well.

Day 6: Tree


For the sixth day I decided to draw a tree, something I’ve wanted to work on. It turned out rather well, despite me losing interest halfway through and being a little sloppy.

Day 7: Tarantula


It’s kind of obligatory to draw a spider when Halloween’s approaching, so I drew this tarantula. I think it’s my first time drawing a spider and I’m rather happy with the result.

I do regret the shadowing beneath the body, though. Parts of it looks fine, other parts look really off.

Drawing: Bonchance Hornline

My sister recently competed in her first dressage competition with her and mum’s horse, Bonchance Hornline. I decided to comemorate this with a drawing.


It’s been a long while since I last drew a horse, but it was surprisingly easy to get back into things. The lines and proportions came back quickly, since there was a time when I often drew horses.

The best part of this, in my opinion, is the eye and the shadowing on the neck. I’m not too happy with the muzzle as the colours wouldn’t blend the way I wanted them to.

Throwback Thursday: Twenties Girl

Time to show off another of the images from my header, and this is the portrait that I call Twenties Girl.


I got inspired by this photograph of Louise Brooks and used it as a model for shadowing and pose, but didn’t attempt to really draw her. There’s something about the fashion of the period that’s really striking.

I like the colour choices that I’ve made in this picture. Blue and yellow works nicely together, and while the splotchiness of the yellow is due to it running out of colour it looks intentional. Like a wallpaper.
