• Ms. Marvel – Heroic Pose
  • Posted on March 22, 2015
  • I found a old photo of a girl on the Internet with a pose I like. I decided Ms. Marvel (classic one) would be a good fit for the pose. Then I opened up DAZ Studio and tried to capture the pose, but the shoulder and hand positions got a bit different and the camera angle is a little bit different to (Ms. Marvel is a bit more towards the camera compared to the photo). Then I rendered it to a Image and used it as a reference for this drawing.

    Manga Studio 5. First i sketched shapes and tried to come close to my render, then I started to add more and more details not caring about line work and positions that much. When I had most things done I made the sketch layer blue and added a vector layer on top and “sculpted” out the shapes for a good line work. Then flat colors and shading. I did not want to do a background, but neither white or black felt right so now she has nothing behind.


    I don’t want to spend more energy and time on it right now, so I upload it as it is. I might add a background and change things, but I think it will be another version instead of just a improvement. I might update shading, light and very minor details on this one.

    Fan-Art. Ms. Marvel is a Marvel Comics character.

    Comments are welcome, also ideas of what a good background would be. Thanks for watching!

  • Spider-Man and Spider-Woman kissing

  • Now we are getting close to the final Art. I might add Spider-Woman’s other hand (somewhere), tweak hair, lines, shading and light. Things that will make this image look even better. I wonder if I might loose viewers not waiting for a more final version? But then again, this is as close to final I have ever come (even counting in finished ones) and I will strive to as close or closer when I create new Art.

    Painted and Line Art versions made in Manga Studio 5 and I have been drawing them on my Intuos 4L tablet.

    The Art is based on a older version on this Superhero kissing theme with the same characters. You can see it here below. I hope you like the newer ones best! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Tragic Marvel Love 01 โ€“ Cyclops and Phoenix – update 01
  • Posted on March 15, 2015
  • When I read X-Men it still feels weird to see Emma Frost with together with Scott Summers. I miss Jean Grey.

    My idea was to make a powerful scene with Cyclops and Phoenix and the idea came from poses on a old drawing I found on my computer.

    Tools: DAZ Studio, Manga Studio, Wacom Intuos 4L tablet.

    Updated and now with Line Art version.

  • A Sorceress update 2 – Near finished
  • Posted on February 14, 2015
  • I have for a long time wanted to make a few fantasy character drawings I could be happy with. Now I have one down. I might make some changes to this Sorceress image, but I think it is time to move on to something other and see if some cool things I have managed with this one can be repeated and maybe improved on.

    This is the Sorceress. Line Art in vecors, flat colors in a layer, a shading layer, 3 layers for skin, other layers for other textures, 2 correction layers and other stuff. Made in Manga Studio 5 with Wacom Intuos 4L tablet. If I would add more details later, I would probably get some textures for the staff.

    Click on images for larger size.

    Next up a close up so you can see more details and the skin textures. I have used 3 layers of Airbrush to get the effect.

    At last we have the Line Art version.

    That’s it.

  • A Sorceress update
  • Posted on February 11, 2015
  • I’m working on shading and reworking the Line Art. When it comes to colors, light and shadow I still have a bit to learn about how the tools in Manga Studio works. Then actually get better at shading.

    It will get better before it’s done.

  • May the fourth be with you!

  • It’s the Unofficial Star Wars Day today! I take the opportunity to post a picture I drew for a Paint Contest for the Science Fiction Bokhandeln (bookstore) in Sweden.

    I won a signed copy of Star Wars book Apocalypse by Troy Denning which should be on it’s way home to me. It was fun to paint in a simple program in low resolution and to care more about getting the picture submitted on time than to improve it for ages, as I have a tendency to do otherwise with what I create.

    When I did this painting I wanted to create a painting with a old game 2D feel to it.

  • Boy Room – Drawing in perspective over the painting
  • Posted on December 16, 2012
  • In this update I’m drawing over the painting in perspective so I can get it right. When that is done I can add things in to the room and make it all look better before I paint it over again.

    I’m using a perspective grid I made that is converted into a stencil in ArtRage. A stencil is good because it can be placed partly outside the canvas area and it can be hidden when not in use. A stencil can also act as a ruler and you can spin it around, which gives even more possibilities.

    At the beginning of this part I made sure that the lines in the perspective grid stencil was somewhat aligned with the lines of the painting before I painted it on to a new layer. It created a 1 point perspective in blue. Is important to get the right height on the perspective point which gives a horizontal line, so my thought was to see the room through a camera in the approximate height of a person’s eyes. The desk chair is not pointing directly at the desk, so I decided to put up a 2 point perspective outside the canvas surface and paint the lines of the grid in orange were the chair is on yet another layer. I had to change the perspective points a few times to get the lines of the stencil somewhat aligned with the chair before I found the final place of the grid.

    This is part 2. For part 3 look here. Part 1, part 4.

  • Early Agent Crossgreen color test

  • This is a early watercolor test in ArtRage Studio Pro. The final result might be far away from this in both drawing and color.

    In 2013 I think much of my work will be in perspective and color. I want to work much with watercolor and make it look real in ArtRage. Maybe I will even print or capture digital Line Art to canvas and paint with real watercolor.

  • Boy Room – A early view of a digital painting project
  • Posted on December 15, 2012
  • I’m thinking about adding in a ghost, monster or possibly living toys. Not sure yet. This is so far painted without perspective points. I have problems drawing rooms and places with and without perspective so this time I’m trying to paint it out instead with the thought of repainting it into perspective with the use of a grid or ruler.

    This is painted in ArtRage Studio Pro which you can get a look at here if you are interested.

    This is part 1. For part 2 look here. Part 2, part 3, part 4.
