An image I did for an art-challange I wanted to take part in. It was hosted by the "Swatches"-team, Diana and Clint Cearley. The theme was set in a fictional board-game, in which you have to collect clues and solve a mystery.
It was fun and challanging to work on this. Scroll down for more step-by-step shots.
Inspired by ancient egypt and the Amonkhet-Set by MtG.
This was done for an online class by Diana and Clint Cearley. The brief was very similar to a real illustration project. Thanks to their great feedback I learned a lot in the process.

I was sifting through my phone to look for pencil - drawings, that I may not have posted here. Yes, there are some double - posts but I figured it was nice to have them together with the others.
This started as a side-project to experiment with my workflow. It took so long, but I am quite happy with how it turned out.
the value comp... it changed quite a lot from there.
The final illustration.
And here are some the studies I did, whenever I had a problem to solve with this image.
Whenever I don't know how to solve a drawing- or painting-problem, I try to get reference and do a study. Then I can go back and take an educated guess at the solution. Painting is problem-solving at its core.
This is my blog.
I will share information about workflow, my insights into image-making or just general thoughts and rants about being an artist.
