40-minute Asa Skullwalker picture to unwind at the end of a long day of drawing stuff. I love drawing Asa - one of these days, I’ll have draw more comics with her. I’m working on two separate comics - one for an anthology, one for an advent calendar - and it’s eating up a lot of my time. I am still drawing a lot, though, and I will be posting work-in-progress stuff and previews over at my Patreon. (hope you don’t mind the latest couple of posts with fanart - it’s a nice way to unwind after being really intensely focused on a project)

Vivi Orunitier, Final Fantasy IX. Watercolour and ink sketch. Of course I had to follow up the Freya-sketch with a picture of Vivi! Because Vivi is the best. … I kinda miss the days when Square-Enix (Squaresoft, back in those days) still had some genuine variety in their character designs. I saw the trailer for FFXV, and everyone looks practically interchangeable; just one generic crowd of dudes with shiny hair and white/grey/black clothes. Give me Quina Quen and Eiko over that any day of the week.

Freya Crescent, Final Fantasy IX. Watercolour and ink sketch. So we got to talking about Final Fantasy IX on Twitter the other day, and sort of geeked out about how much we all loved Freya. So, uh, I had to draw her - FFIX is my favourite game, ever.

Been watching a Let’s Play of Twilight Princess lately, so true form Midna it is. Based it on one of her earlier concept designs, with a looser and less form-fitting outfit - which I honestly like better than the design that actually ended up in the game. Post with WIP-shots and progress babble available for my Patreon-backers.

Hi guys. I’m in a bit of a political depression funk today - Swedish parlimentary elections were yesterday, and the racists/extremists got 13% of the votes. This is not only depressing but genuinely scary, and I’m feeling kind of let down and helpless. I’ll be back tomorrow.

Bought some clothes at a second-hand store sale the other day, and I feel fancy enough to share. All of these clothes (shoes, hat and mismatched socks not included) cost me 7 dollars in total. And the dress has pockets! 
I feel so fancy.
(I’ve made my first Patreon-post, btw, with a development sketch for my upcoming advent calendar)

I just started a Patreon!

As a freelance illustrator and comic artist, my income is often very uncertain, so Patreon looks like a really great way to help pay the bills while I focus on doing what I love - draw and tell stories.

I will continue doing what I’ve been doing - drawing and posting illustrations and comics and stuff here on Tumblr and other places - but Patreon-backing means I will be able to devote even more time to it than I already am. I’m also hoping to get enough creative space to start planning a longer-format webcomic, because I miss working on a big story.

Patreon-backers will get access to stuff like hi-res comics with extra material, early previews of finished artwork and comics before they turn up here, as well as early concept sketches and such that never get posted anywhere else. One of the pledge-tiers even includes a digital sketch commission for the backers!(Pledge-rewards and Patreon-only posts-content might change and expand as I figure this thing out - more sketches! Possibly videos of me drawing! Maybe even postcards with robots on them!)Please spread the word and help me get the ball rolling - every little helps!

Reblogging for all you folks living in a different time-zone. :)

More recipe-illustration, because I need practise drawing food! And also because this is delicious, and needs to be shared. Swedish chocolate-oat balls, aka chokladbollar. Ingredients for basic recipe:100 grams of butter1 1/2 deciliter of sugar3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder5 deciliters of rolled oats2-3 tablespoons of watersome shredded coconut for decoration… and whatever else sounds good. Start by mixing soft butter and sugar, and then add the rest of the ingredients - you can add in flavourings here if you want; vanilla powder, for example, or you can switch out the tablespoons of water and use cold brewed coffee instead. Mix until everything is a uniform, kinda soggy mess. Roll into balls of whatever size you want, then roll them in the shredded coconut. Put the resulting balls on a plate and stick it in your fridge for as long as you can stand it (freezer also works, if you’re more impatient) to let them set and harden a little bit. Take them out whenever you want, and try not to eat all of them at once. 

A few tips - try to use as high-quality cocoa powder as you can. It does make a difference in the taste. Also, when you add the rolled oats, it’s going to look like it’s waaaay too much - don’t worry, and just keep mixing. It’ll work out in the end, I promise. And like I said - add anything you think will taste good. You can switch out the shredded coconut for sugar, or more cocoa powder, or sesame seeds. You can cut down on the sugar if you want to make it less delicious unhealthy, and so on. And of course, the best part of these chocolate-oat balls is that it requires only one mixing bowl, and absolutely no actual baking at all. It’s practically fool-proof.
