Work in progress

A sneak-peak of something I am working on. The final thing will be HUGE! It takes forever to draw the different parts. I lack a daruma, a lucky kitty, gemstones and treasure chest and 5 yen coins… Hopefully I can finish the other parts for this later this week. For now, I have finished the octopus at last.

    Kjempefin! Du er skikkelig flink til å tegne, vet du det?

      Tusen takk skal du ha. Jeg har nok ikke noe særlig talent for å tegne, men jeg synes det er veldig kjekt, så forhåpentligvis gjør øvelse mester. Jeg er fremdeles litt misunnelig på folk som bare kan sette seg ned og tegne hva som helst uten forberedelsestid.

    Forberedelser eller ikke; tegningene dine er fantastiske! : )

      Tusen takk! Jeg blir så glad av å høre sånt! Spesielt siden det ikke er det mediumet jeg føler meg mest sikker på alltid.

    Spennende! Gleder meg til å se ferdig prosjekt også. 🙂

      Takk! Dette prosjektet drar ut i langdrag altså… Tegner litt hver uke, men jeg vil jo gjerne bli ferdig med bildet før august! Jeg mener å huske at jeg var himla produktiv før, men nå strekker ikke tiden til…

    Dear Sushibird, your blog is incredible! I am in love with your photos and drawings, they have so much style and sinserity!! My best regards to you)

    I was just looking at this drawing, and I wonder whether it was a kind of improvization, for I do not see any signs of pencil or something. It is so clear, but the lines are very precise. Do you make the preliminary sketches for your works, or do you just draw them at once? )

      Thank you for such a nice comment!

      Drawing is not something I consider myself to be an expert on, but I enjoy it a lot 🙂 When I draw, I look at photographs of the things I want to draw, but I also look up illustrations of the same thing I am trying to draw, it helps me see where the important parts is, and what details I can leave out when I draw my own versions. I usually draw very very lightly with a pencil to sketch up and outline, then I draw the outline with a pen, and draw the details in directly with pen, without any pencil sketch. And then I erase the pencil sketching for the outline. I hardly sketch on separate paper, unless it is in my notebooks.

        Thank you! Then, you must have very precise hand movements – the lines are so natural, and there are no mistakes and corrections
