Very happy with this drawing:)

Everything is  stippled except the grass.

I’m back:)

November 27th, 2012

It has been a while since I posted something here.

The waiting is now over, I’ve resumed posting.

One difference: The images I post will be a bit smaller.

People telling me that they took my pics of the internet and using them as postcards etc doesn’t make me happy.

Pics I post on my site aren’t free to use, they are copyrighted material.

Anyways next post will be a drawing I made instead of copyright stuff:)

 

Drawing house as a castle

February 15th, 2012

slotpaasbergsmallI made this drawing for a “personailised” bottle of wine  I gave at a friends wedding.
Extende the house on the drawing to look like a castle.

Many French wines are called chateau X or Y  So I made a french translation of the streetname and made a beutiful label with a print and glued it to a bottle of wine.

Was quite a lot of work for a personalised label on a bottle, but I had the time to make it and any less effort for my friends wedding would feel cheap..

Kept the original for now..

Pen and ink

Mainly did a portion of the main mast today.
The newly added ink texture  makes a lot of difference.

Also did a bit of work on a rope and more additions to the texture of the aft mast.
