As some of you know, I have been working on my concept art recently. One of the things I have been trying to do is to figure out how I can communicate my art is such a way that it would be approachable for people.
To that end I did this drawing, which was meant to be given to a 3D animator who could then sculpt the character.
If you frequent drawing blogs, or are on deviantart, you will no doubt gave seen your fair share if porn-ish art. It seems every hirny dude who has ever picked up a pencil only wants to draw one thing: boobs.
I have always considered myself above these neanderthals, I have never been that fond of drawing boobs. I have been feeling all high and mighty for a while and then recently I decided to spend some time looking back in my previous blog posts.
It is true that I rarely have drawings of naked women, hut that does nit mean that I have escaped the same content. Plastered on almost every page of my old blog, is a drawing of some half naked semi-famous dude.
As itbturns out I am a horndog, just like the rest of them, the only difference is that I am gay.

When I was a kid I had this drawing game that I liked to play. I would make a bunch of random squiggles on a piece of paper and see what kind of drawing i could make out of the results.
I decided that I would try that out again, I am pretty good at drawing, so this could turn out great… it did not

I have a bit of an obsession. Yes, I admit it, I absolutely love the Logo show, Rupaul’s drag race.
In fact I love it so much that I obsess over an episode for an entire week until the next one is show. I will spare you the walkthrough of the queens, but let’s just say that this is in fact the fishiest season yet.
I have a saying I have made up, that applies to drawing, It goes something like this: it is not the best drawing I have ever done, but it is a drawing I have ever done.
This saying, however clumsy it may be, is what I run this blog by.
It simply states that some days you are awesome and you create something that you can be proud of forever and some days you create a dumb spaceman that really has nothing to do with anything.
You just have to realize that tomorrow is another day and that maybe you will do better then.

This is me trying to work with some dramatic light. It went okay I think
If you will allow it, I am going to talk shop for a second or two.
I love bright colours, as a matter of fact, I think it is the prettiest when the skin tones on a face (or other bodypart) is comprised of allot of colours, rather than just a dull greyish yellow.
This is why I am not a big fan of the colouring technique. for those of you not in the know, the coloruing technique, is a technique in digital drawing where you draw a character or a scene in black/white and then convert it to colours.
If you google this, you will finds tons of tutorials instructing you on how to colour your finished sketch. The reason that I dislike these drawings, is that the colour that are chosen usually lack any depth.
I have to admit, however, that it is allot more practical to draw something in black/white, than it is to draw something in colour. If you just look through this blog, you will find several posts that are in black/white simply because I couldn’t get around to adding colour.
That is why I was so thrilled in finding a technique that kind of works for me. I won’t say that it works all the way or is perfect, but it kind of works.
the technique is really quite simple, I drew a rough sketch of the character and the lighting I wanted, then set up the contrast and added an overall colour. Then I just continued drawing. I simple just drew on top the new coloured piece with more colours.
This is a technique that needs some refinement, but I mig
There is going be a bit of a change coming to this blog in a couple of days, so I thoughts only fitting to announce it, by going back to Kyle roots with a portrait.
The change that I am talking about, will come in the form of a series of concepts for a world ravaged by zombies.
Sadly cannot say much more about the subject for now, but if you stay w7th me, I will make it worth your while.
A couple of years ago I went to shanghai. I went there with school and had the most awesome time, really I cannot stress enough how awesome that was.
Sadly a trip like this also comes with a certain number of logistic problems and travel plans. One of those plans that I encountered speaks to a very old problem of mine. I had to chose a roommate for the trip and in that instance I was transported back in time to the last kid chosen for soccer in 4th grade.
If people didn’t already have a roommate, they quickly found one when I asked. At the end of the day I had to ask the person in charge of booking the rooms to just put me in room with who-ever.
this was how I came to room with two really great guys, as it turned out. I had the pleasure of sharing very tight quaters with two exchange students, one from Canada and one from U.S.A
As I mentioned, we did really have a good time together, but when you share a room with someone for 5 weeks you start to notice certain character traits. Being danish I have always been told that holding yourself above anyone else is frowned upon. If you have a skill and you consider yourself proficient in it, you should always talk yourself down, and let the work speak for itself.
This, however, was not the case with my american flatmate. When asked about his school, he would often boast that he considered himself the best industrial designer in the entire place.
Now whether this was true or not, I cannot speak to; but to be fair, he was a very skilled industrial designer.
with an inspiration in my american flatmate in shanghai, I decided to try my luck with a bit of industrial design and well… I still have a while to go before I can considered the best.

I am one of those weird people who love to work. As it is probably very obvious by this blog; if I don’t have a project for more than a week I become restless.
that is why there are two times a year that I despise, summer vacation and January.
Summer vacation (which in Denmark spans from July to September) is the worst. Usually I am coming directly from some kind of exam situation and therefore super tired when it starts, but as those two months progresses I become increasingly restless. I end up pulling my own hear out and wishing school would just start back up and when it does I am grateful like you wouldn’t believe.
However, January is the suckiest month of all. Not only is it cold and grey in Denmark, but the months is usually spend preparing for exam. even if I have allot of work to do before christmas I usually just find myself twiddling my thumbs til school starts back up.
I know this isn’t the best quality in my and that I really should be better at motivating myself, which I guess is what this blog is all about. So let’s see how it goes
