Pencil and Paper
Can you tell I love cartoons yet? Here’s another one, to partner yesterdays cow. The quality i think is a bit lower, but you can still recognize the very iconic characteristics I think.
When drawing cartoon style characters I have a habit of “sketching” every line. With this I mean that I draw a tiny bit of the line, and go back and forth over it applying little pressure to expand on it. I’ve been told that this is a bad habit and its better to make broader, … Continue reading
What is Abbot without Costello? What is Tom without Jerry? What is Laurel without Hardy? Not half as fun as they are together I say. Hence my contraption of today, Dexters counterpart, Deedee!
Back to the old drawing board again. Kind of a fitting remark to go with this little boy genius. Turned out pretty much exactly as planned.

The store at the train stations (I’ve been traveling a lot the last for days for training) didn’t seem to have any. So when I started googling i ran into a tutorial on how to make them myself. I’ve made 2 … Continue reading
Valentine is upon us, and when looking for inspiration on what to draw today its not long before you come to the “hearts” and “roses”. Not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, I set forth to do thus, but with a little bit of what I hope is a unique and interesting … Continue reading
As I’ve shown last week I need to work on eyes. Not so much the quality of the eyes, but just to make a matching set. Today I’ve worked on that a bit. I’ve tried some eyes of different shapes and levels of detail, from rather complex to pretty darn simplistic. Just by putting down … Continue reading
