Sketch dump II

Time for another sketch dump!

These sketches are from the last couple of months, a mixture of comic and realistic sketches. Lots of faces this time, lots of characters…

Who is who and what?

Most of the characters sketched here do have names and a meaning but I’m not going to reveal too much because they’re part of my comic (which is still in a WIPsta…

Face study

A face study is a great tool to learn what kind of expressions people have and how the face works when showing emotions. You can see all of the human emotions by watching people’s faces. Expressions, looks & hair, the unique features, the whole package…

I’ve also learned that certain facial types exist; everyone has seen people who look like each other without being related. Also, you can expect…

Sketch dump I

My first real sketch dump is here! And a blog update after a little break… I’ve been busy with my comic (and decorating my home!). I always get a decor buzzwhen summer comes because it’s so pretty outside and sunny – and I want my home to be pretty too. A poor excuse for not drawing but actually I’ve been drawing a lot: my comic. That’s why I haven’t had time for proper blog updates. Hopefully I…

Moorville, sneak peek

It’s been a while since I’ve updated my art blog but no, I’m not on a hiatus. I’ve been very busy with my Moorville-comic and because I don’t have any finished pages yet, I can’t make a big blog post about Moorville. Anyways, working hard and moving forward – slowly but surely.

A little sneak peek because photos are more fun than words.

From storyboard to finished

From storyboard to finished

Storyboard is an essential tool when making a comic, and it makes the process so much easier. In a nutshell, storyboard is an image script and it’s mainly used by movie makers and animators. But it’s a great tool for comic artists, too.

I used to hate storyboarding because I felt that it took so much time from the actual comic but then I realized how much easier it made my life. When you really…

Original character: Merry

I decided to redraw one of my original characters because I haven’t made a full body painting in a long time, and I also wanted to make a bigger painting after so many portraits.

I have a couple of original characters who I paint from time to time – not including my comic characters. Merry is one of my favourite of my OCs, so I chose to paint her. She’s a tough girl, kicking anyone’s ass with her…

Mimmu’s comic font

Mimmu’s comic font

Yes, my font is finally ready! I made it especially for my own comic stories because I don’t like to use ready made fonts. They feel out of place in a comic because everything else in it was made by you – except the letters. Most of the time the ready made fonts don’t even suit the comic’s visual style. The font is an important part of a comic too. It’s not the main point but it shouldn’t be…

Devil in disguise

I decided to paint one of my old portraits again, called “Devil in disguise” (from 2010). I try to do this kind of thing at least once a year to see what kind of progress I’ve made and how my skills are developing. I think I’ve come pretty far in the last four years. Gotta keep up the hard work, it pays off!
