I've made many sketches the last few weeks and am working on a new illustration! Some of them...:

A week or so ago I was on a railway-station and saw the most beautiful girl. I had my sketchbook with me and felt compelled to sketch her, but I was to shy at the same time to approach her about it. So I glanced at her every now and then, while quickly trying to catch her on paper. The next time I'll try to sum up the courage to approach her:)

I recently discovered a beautiful Christmas song, 'Breath of Heaven', written by Amy Grant and covered by Oleta Adams among others. It tells the nativity story from Maria's point of view and deals with the struggles she goes through. I thought it would make for a nice illustration. My 'Solaris' illustration is almost finished (I'll post it soon), so I made some sketches for my new project 'Breath of Heaven'.

The above sketches are from a life-drawing club I attended. The model had the most beautiful eyes and a 'classical look', all of which I tried desperately:) to capture on paper. The face turned out alright, but I wasn't quite able to draw her full figure the way I intended... I noticed I had a tendency to draw the figure the way I envisioned it in my head; instead of observing the model accurately.
This sketch will become part of the earlier mentioned 'Solaris' illustration. I drew and inked her today, and added some color and shadow very quickly to see what it would do. So more to come!

I feel stupid for never updating this blog, but more so for drawing so rarely. It comes naturally to me, but then I hardly ever practice! In the mean time, a Rudolph Valentino caricature I made a second ago, a life-drawing from nature and some photos I collected from newspapers because I like them.
