All kinds of stuff that I've drawn
I've been drawing all sorts of things my whole life. As a kid I went to a few drawing and painting courses, but after that I drew mainly at school. 2001 I got interested in drawing again, and 2002 I first went to an actual drawing course at a local academy. We always have a live model in class. Most of these pictures were made in that course, but some were made at home or in train. I have a gallery in Elfwood with some more old drawings. I don't mind getting critique, but I do know my own limits. The teacher of my course always tries to encourage me to be more artistic, but he's not very successful with it...

First drawing in my "drawing from live model"-course. charcoal, 2002
An "improved" version of that sketch above. Background was surprising difficult to do. Photoshop, 2003
A drawing made in drawing course. I like this one. charcoal, 2004
The last drawing I made in the drawing course this spring. It was fun to do the shades with a small marker, and I think it looks good, too. mechanical pencil and marker, 2004
One IRC-friend of my told me to draw a lizard-king, so here you go Rilex. I'll probably colour this in Photoshop one day. mechanical pencil, 2001
Same picture as before, but coloured with markers, which didn't work out the way I wanted to. mechanical pencil and markers, 2001
Another IRC-friend of mine asked me to draw this/inspired me to draw this (can't remember which, thanks anyway Spacey ;-)). I do remember that I draw this one on a train going from Jyväskylä to Helsinki. mechanical pencil, 2001
A christmas present for a group of IRC-friends (#bng). Sorry, that I never finished it. mechanical pen, 2001 or 2002
I sketched this one at a beach near Hanko. When a guy who was also there at the time passed away, I coloured this. The faces aren't the best I've drawn, but I still like them. mechanical pencil and Photoshop, 2002-2003
Drawn in 20 minutes with the same markers I used to destroy the king of lizards. markers, 2003
I met a Brazilian priest on train. I was drawing while we talked, and he wanted to draw my picture. In return I draw him a praying man. We've met once after that, in Stockmann in Helsinki. mechanican pencil, 2002
A friend of mine showed me the Rasterbator, and I decided I need some kind of poster made with that technic to my wall. Because I couldn't find any picture from the www that I would've liked, I draw one. This is a sketch made in 20 minutes. mechanical pencil, 2004
The next phase of the castle. The first black and white picture I've done on computer. Photoshop, 2004
This is the same castle after Rasterbator. Its size is 4 x 10 A4-sized papers, which means it's 2.1 m wide.
Some croquis-drawings from my drawing class. Croquis means a quick and often sketchy drawing. Marker, 2006-2007.
Some more croquis-drawings. Marker, 2006-2007.
Even more croquis-drawings. Marker, 2006-2007.
Ordinary drawing from the same drawing course. Charcoal, 2006.
