This piece is my rendition of another DA-user's characterdesign.
The original is found here:

Used this as a base-reference:

We are friends by DanielKarlsson
We are friends
Acrylic on canvas, 2016.

My third acrylic piece using the same sort of color-scheme where i start off with a black-white underpainting and then color it in layers using a blue/turqoise midtone, yellow-ish highlights and red/purple/orange tones inside of the black/dark areas.
I kept having trouble moving forward, once i finished the grey-scale underpainting, because i was concerned about the risk of ruining all the work and finely polished details when I start coloring without a plan. By coming up with a locked-in color-scheme and a sort of code, I had less hesitation and a clearer direction. Though after three pieces I think I'm done with this.

Interests
... 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.
