Found this doll in a store that sells old used stuff, i honestly can’t say i’m surprised that someone wanted to get rid of this deranged looking doll.

Just a quick sketch today,  purely from my imagination..

in between this and my last drawing, all i drew was this:

thats what happens when you decide half an hour in advance to show up at a halloween party , and all you have is eyeliner and lipstick to work with..

day 4-5

October 31st, 2009 by Rebekka in Uncategorized

Whew.   Spent 10 hours of the last 22 working on this newest installment in my “picture a day” challenge. Therefore, im going to make it count for 2 days.

This is my good friend Óskar, who said i should draw him, when i was drawing something else the other day, so i did just that, without telling him.  Typically, i spend at the very least a week, often a month or more, on detailed pencil work.  Also, i find frontal portraits like this, with rather flat lighting, the most difficult to get right, as being able to capture the right charecteristics of the person lies heavily in the shadows, and working almost nonstop on shading is a lot more exhausting than i thought (seeing as i’ve never forced myself to do it before).

So, im marginally happy with this one.  I’ve flipped over to a clean page at least, and look forward to continuing with this on monday..

day 3 (this is already getting hard)

October 29th, 2009 by Rebekka in Uncategorized

Okeydoke.  already i’m slacking, started on “todays” project (only by now it’s technically yesterdays) after 11 pm, and just finished (its 1:40) and I hate it, but it was certainly good practice at some freehand drawing, which ive been neglecting, and will have to do for the third installment:

i typically spend 2 weeks on drawings, not 2 hours, so this isn’t quite up to my normal standard.

Now to sleep and come up with an idea for today.

later..

day #2

October 28th, 2009 by Rebekka in Uncategorized

So far so good..  As i mentioned yesterday, i’ve decided to kick myself out of the uncreative rut i’ve been in the last few months, by forcing myself to create some sort of artwork every day for two weeks..  Today’s installment:

I’ve been meaning to make this spoof of one of my early photos for a while,  finally stopped thinking about it and got it done..

Of course Barbie has this benign smile plastered permanently to her face..  Seeing as there was no way of getting her to look all creeped-out, i decided to just add to the sugary sweetness with some soft porn lighting..  Now im not altogether sure what sort of mood we have going here :p

Here’s the original from 2005:

More to come tomorrow..
