Money run...

I'm posting this update to let you all know that i'm currently taking commissions for digitally painted portraits. A simple and clean piece, just the face/head, is 40$. I'll do bigger stuff as well, but at an adjusted rate.
If you, or anyone you know, are interested, just send me a pm and we'll work something out.
My reason for doing this is because i'm trying to save up for a surprise-trip for me and my family, and by doing this i hope to get there faster.

Digital, Corel Painter, 2016.

Hadn't painted anything digital in a while and needed something simple to ease back into it, so i went with another portrait of my son.

This is a small practice-study. A bit too pale and harsh in the white areas, the original photo had a warmer, more yellow, midtone and the shoulder were less wide i think.

I used this as a reference:…

I was born.
I figured out how to hold a pen.
I drew.
I liked it.
I hated it.
I liked it again.
I applied for artschools.
I got rejected.
I got angry.
I painted more.
I had an exhibition.
I am still painting.
... Since I last posted a journal entry. The passed year has been filled with all the new experiences that comes with becoming a parent, and I haven't had as much time or energy to pour into my paintings as I would have liked to. Anyhow, I'm now officially on parental leave, which seem to be even more time-consuming. I'm gonna try to discipline myself and find time to paint whenever I can.

I don't know how many of my watchers read these journals, but I'd like to know if any of you would like me to maybe update these more often and write about my process and thoughts in general? I'm also wondering if any of you are following me on instagram/facebook. I tend to post wip-pics there if anyone is interested.
