Winter landscape study

Today I treated myself to Kyle T Webster’s new concept brush set and used it to make this quick, messy winter landscape study. It’s an amazing set (as are all his brush sets)! You can find it here:

Also in October, I finished this illustration.
Below are the wip's:

Book Cover Illustration

Also in October, 'Skygger i mørket' ('Shadows in the dark') was released. It's a thrilling horror book for young adults written by Christian Engkilde (book cover illustrated by yours truly). It's the first book in a trilogy and it's available in Danish book stores or through Silhuet's webshop here:

Below is the clean illustration:

Inktober 2016

I haven't had time to update the blog in a long while now, but here's a bit of catching up. This year was the first time I participated in the Inktober challenge in October. Was super fun and by the end of the month I had discovered a new combo of tools I really enjoyed working with; tracing paper and markers.

New Illustrated Book

Last Friday, 'Jeg er Frankenstein' ('I am Frankenstein'), a brand new illustrated thriller book for tweens and teens, was published in the olde kingdom of Denmark. It's written by Bjarke Schjødt Larsen and illustrated by yours truly. It's a great read and it was super fun to work on too.
Below are a selection of some of the interior illustrations and vignettes I made along with the book cover without the text.

Head study

I made this head study last week in Procreate with iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. As always, super enjoyable tools to work with!
I also posted a video of my process on Instagram: artbynath

2016 avatar

Every year I make a new online avatar for myself. It's a nice tradition as it gives me a short break from big and ambitious projects. This year I used Procreate for most of it (I used Pixelmator for the circle and Photoshop for a bit of last-minute tweaking).

I started out with the more complex sketch below, but in the end I came to my senses and kept it simple and readable for small sizes. :)

Anyone Can Improve at Drawing

I threw together this Before and After picture for this site:
“We all start somewhere. This is a blog where artists share how their artwork has improved after years of practice. This blog is here to inspire and encourage you to keep drawing every day!”
