A new member off the family!

The Puppy

Yes thats right... we now have another dog in the family. I told you about the puppy my sister was getting in an earlier blog entry and how my mother and I wanted one of our own... Well mum did get dad to see our way (which wasn't that hard since he really wanted one too) so on Wednesday the 20 September we went to the same women and looked at the two puppies she had left. And even tho they both where very cute, we all fell for the one with the most fur, she was the one that was most forward and she acted just like she wanted us to pick her... and we did!

We have had a hard time deciding on what we are going to call her...On the paper she her name is Samira, witch is a really lovely name but it's a little to close to Safir and Saffy witch is the name on my sisters oldest dog... so we wanted her to have another name. At first we called her Tammy but that proved to be hard to remember and then we named her Buffy but again that was a little too close to Saffy. Finally we have decided on Ronja after Astid Lindgren's character because our Ronja is much like the girl in the book Ronia, the Robber's Daughter or Ronja Rövardotter as it's called in Swedish.

So with the new puppy here there haven't been much time for anything else other then taking her out to pee and to play with her. So in the evenings I have been so tired that I haven't had the energy to turn the computer on... I'm very tired now too but I have taken the opportunity to sit down and relax. So if there are lots of spelling mistakes in this you know why.

The Sketches

I have done some sketches while I have been "babysitting" but since I am so tired right now I haven't scanned them in jet so you will be seeing some older sketches today.

This first one is a sketch where I tried to do a full-body drawing in a pose that I haven't drawn before. It's not perfect but I sort of like it anyway.

I don't now what I was thinking when I drew this one... the arms look so strange but... hmm... yeah I still like to show it to you.

Some last words

In my last blog I talked about telling you about a great magazine I know but since I am so tired right now I will write about it in my next blog instead.

Strange creatures...

I'm still trying to figure out what I could write in this blog... yes I know that this is a sketch-blog, but I would like to take the opportunity to write down things I find important.

However, the thing is I neither speak good English nor let alone write it and my spelling is awful at times, I'm aware of this but if I should write only in Swedish then most wouldn't have a clue on what I said and besides do I know that most Swedish people can understand English pretty well even though they may not be as good at the writing or speaking it.

Men finns det någon som undra va sjutton jag har skrivit så är det bara att att fråga på svenska. Hihi!!!

I use Google's spellcheck tool when I write but I still wish I had payed a little more attention in my English classes at school.

I don't think I have anything interesting to say right now but tomorrow I plan to tell you a little bit more about a great magazine I have bought for the last couple of months that I simply love! So stay tuned... ;)

Today's collection of sketches will be of some strange creatures I have drawn and I hope you will like them.

The creature above is just something a started on when I was with my friend and drew pictures for each other. Hmmm... well she was the one on a drawing spree and drew funny and cute pictures for me but I only manage to make a few for her... but this one I never finished and even tho I was planing to make a proper drawing out of it I haven't been able so far...

I acually named the creature above (the one withe the funny looking eyes) to Bizzy... I don't know why but it has been on my big pile of "must finish" picture for ever but I never seem to get to it. So I thought I should show you how far I have come... You can't see it that clearly but in the background I am making a tree with a hive hanging from one of the branches. I hope I can get the inspiration to finish it soon. =)

This cat, rabbit, lion and kangaroo looking creature I made one day when me and my sister sat down and drew together, I can't remember what she said bit I do know that she inspired me to make this one...

Some faces!

Here comes some sketches of random faces I have done this year... All have been done with pencil on ordinary computer paper.

As you might notice I have a thing for making those kinds of pointy ears... I don't' know why but I really like doing them... And on the sketch over here you see how I tried making a half-animal girl with leopard spots, (YES..I know it doesn't look anything near leopard spots but I tried).

On the sketch below I was going for some kind of native tribe person, I say person because even tho I was trying to draw a man I don't think I did a very good job... Why is drawing men and boys so darn hard... hmm... I guess I need to try harder next time.

Below you see a sketch of a clown I did as reference for a gift art, I never use this one though but might use it for something else later on.

STRIPPED -Raw and Real

Today I thought I could tell you about STRIPPED -Raw and Real... this a great place to listen to music on the web, I really love the fact that it is "raw and real" because it really brings... at least me closer to the music and makes me really stop and listen. And some of the artist that has been on so far has been completely unknown for me so it has opened my eyes to some new music... and the fact that almost all the artist that has been on have been singing a cover of a song they have chosen and making their own version of it really gives it an edge. I also enjoy the Interviews too. You can choose between seeing the video or listen to the audio and either play all or choose one of the songs. =)

And since this is my blog I will tell you about some of my personal favourites, but remember you don't have to like them... hehehe.
One of the first artist I heard on Stripped was Gavin DeGraw and I especially like the song "Belief". Another favourite is Brad Paisley and his cover of Eric Clapton's song "Layla". And I really love the song "Wild West Show" by Big & Rich, their other songs are alright but "Wild West Show" simply great. Reba's song "Fancy" is also a really great song! And I love all the songs by Shinedown along with Nelly Furtado's songs "Promiscuous", "Maneater" and her cover of Gnarls Barkley’s "Crazy". And today was the first time I heard The Fray (they are the newest featured performance on the first page) and I feel in love with all the songs...
Well there you have some of my favourite artist on

Hmm... and since this is a sketch-blog I better show you some sketches or don't you think. ;)

Work in progress: Dear...

I thought I should share some of the digital paintings I'm working on and even tho I am far from finished on this one you might as well see it. =)

The work name for this is dear... simply because I haven't come up with a better name jet. It started out as a doddle where I just drew some lines and when I saw the "dear" I kept on adding new things to is and after awhile I decided to but in a fairy child on it back because I wanted something more to it... I'm planing to make another background and perhaps even add more things and who knows... I might even come up with a story for the final version!

Puppy and tired

Today we where away and looked at my sisters new puppy that she and her boyfriend is buying next week. She was such a sweetheart and the woman that had the puppies was really nice. She also had German Shepherd puppies that was only three weeks old and they where so adorable... It is almost dangerous looking at them because both my mother and me wanted to take one home... *sight* But at least we will be "babysitters" for my sisters dogs when she works.
Oh... and the puppy is going to be named Bella!

I only managed to draw some doodles today but I did take some photos of Bella so I guess one might say that I have been a little creative today...but now I am really tired and I think I will go and get some sleep!

A new start!

I decided that I am going to make this in to my sketch-blog, with some of the daily sketches I draw that will not end up at my deviantart gallery. I will try and post new things here as often as I can and hopefully this will keep me motivated to draw something everyday.

And the fist sketch will be this idea I had for a little fairy that I made awhile ago.
