An eerie looking creature looking into a crystal ball.
I liked the thin lines so much that I couldn’t put more on it.
I made my grandfather a motor for his birthday.Sadly I don’t have a picture of the finished one.
I looked up the word motor in Google, then drew the one that was the most picturesque with a few changes. He then took a short look at it and told me it’s name.
I am getting better at the dots but they still hurt my hand.

Ambitious project and long post.
I made this for a teacher, in school cause he liked comicbooks a lot. I think he actually uses it to teach a little now. Don’t remember what though.
When I started it my sister was there and it quickly turned into an assignment where we’d have three different characters from comics and they all had to do something together.
I chose Grupert by Moebius, as the first one. Sadly I don’t know much about him but my teacher requested him. I think he is an explorer.
Second one was Gaston Lagaffe by Franquin or as he is known in danish “Vakse Viggo”. I have always liked him and his office antics. Especially the “messy” and blackish drawingstyle.
Third one is Stitch by Chris Sanders. I enjoy doing the round edges on this guy.
The “Musical instrument” is the Gaffophone. A particularly noisy and destructive piece of equipment. Gaston is trying to explain it’s artistic genious to poor Grupert as Stitch is awfully close to pulling the strings. It should be said that the vibrations can knock down walls in the Gaston comic.
It is made with a pencil outline for the sketch and then the dots are filled in. It took a week to do since the paper is A3 and the dots are made with 0.2 pen.
Below you can see the picture slowly filling with dots for shadow.
Started with Stitch and moved down the Gaffophone. It was very fun to do the tuning things at the top.
Had to get a ruler for the strings. They had to look like they are about to burst.
Was not very satisfied with Gaston in the start but he turned out great when I got to his hair.
Grupert is a lighter drawing than the rest. Had to be careful to not make his light shirt too dark.
Last touches and the signature.
The finished drawing:
My father was not very happy that I gave it away, so I made him a similar one.

This is Stitch by Chris Sanders.
I saw someone draw with dots like this and I wanted to try it. It works surprisingly well.
I made the outline with a blue pen and then filled it out with dots creating the shadoweffect. The more dots the darker the area.
Here he is when he is done.
Bonus info: This shadowmethod hurts your hand pretty quickly.

This is my night elf character from World of Warcraft. She is a rather timid character, with a blue haystack of a hair. Below is all the different sketches and the final one.
The first three were mostly experiments with eyes and expression. The one in the top left corner is very far from what I wanted but was a means of getting started. The low ears and the lip style were settled in the middle right one.
Hair and expression and a little comparison to Sizirri and Cithia’s eyes. (Other characters)
The final sketch for now. Tianu on the buttom, my brother’s char in the middle and my troll Sizirri on the top.
Materials: Ballpoint pen and paper.
The sketches are scanned with a phone app, which makes them a little bleak.
This is a pencil drawing that later made it into digital colouring. The original sketch wasn’t made for colour but I am very pleased with the lighting. An effect I rarely use simply because I haven’t mastered it very well.
The digital coloured version, lighting effects and background also added to this.
Materials: Pencil, paper and Photoshop with pen tablet.
This one is my first attempt at drawing dragons. I just figured out that dragons are in essence just a lot of different animals put together. This one started a long period of dragon drawing.
The first one to follow him was his brother the jeweldragon.
Here he is in colour, this was made much later with the pen tablet.
This last one is a later attempt at drawing him from another angle. Face was a bit off though.
Pencil drawings: Pencil and paper (A5).
Colour version: Pen tablet and Photoshop.
