Lizard Rider


I’m back from a weekend trip to Åland, Finland. It takes roughly 24 hours to get there and back again…This is some of the stuff I made in my new sketch book, while on the train/ferry/bus/whatever. I’m trying out a new approach to drawing and creating. Usually I just rush trough the stuff, trying to create as much as possible in as little time as possible, trying to convince myself I have so much I want to learn I can’t spend more than an hour on each piece.


Then I saw this awesome video a few days ago, arguing on how as a noob artist you need to stick with your images for a much longer time than just those speedpaint time limits of 30 minutes – 1 hour. You need to develop patience as a virtue, to bare the pain of the image looking like crap for the very first 1 – 2 hours. So I have decided to stop doing all these quick studies for a while, focusing on art that takes more time, to level up my patience. Quantity CAN NOT make up for quality. These drawings were made very carefully, one stroke at a time, thinking about what I wanted to create, and planning the design. Inspired by the woods and nature where I used to play as a kid. I hope you enjoy!
