So my first idea was to make him very pale with dark black hair. But I also wanted to make him really handsome. 
And I didn't really know if this was it;

So I decided to color him in the total opposite way to what I had thought in the first place. 
A nicely tan with blond wavy hair;

Honestly, I still really don't know if I choose right when I decided to go with the blond.

I should do so many things except for painting right now, but I just can't help myself!

I would sketch characters all day long if I could. But you know, with christmas eve being tomorrow and all, I can't.

Earlier today I found this old sketch that I had started to paint on the computer and decided to continue on it.
But I didn't have enough energy than to just do her hair and a little bit more on her face.  Some of you might even remember it. I thinks it's from last year.

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields,
that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug,
you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings,
till the summer comes again.” - Lewis Carroll

It is bad quality, I know. But yesterday when I sold it, I wasn't able to do more than take a photo with my phone.
So here it is. My dear deer.

So this is the kind of homework I get for the most of the time. But you think it looks easy?
Oh no, you have no idea how wrong you are. Try learning about Illustrator back home, the day before you'll turn it in,
and you'll see that it aint that easy.

Children of nature

This is one of the sketches I made in my little sketchbook during my time in the USA.  And, can I say, my plans on moving there are even closer at being fulfilled now.
Also, if you want to see even more from what I'm painting and sketching, and also, some of my private life you can follow me on Instragram; Rvpetersson

OK so I'm off to USA, Miami, for my first time - but definitely not my last - in just 28 hours!
It is also my first time of flying, I know, crazy, I've never been flying before. So I'm a little bit nervous. Doing it all alone with my sister for the first time, and her second.
So a special shout out to all my american readers today!

Also, there will not be any updates for one and a half week but I'll be home the 19th November so don't forget to come back then!

Still in school

Nothing to do in school, so I paint. 
If what people are saying is true about second year being the hardest, I will have a very easy last third year.

Social norms

Took about 15 to 20 hours to make. Made in Photoshop for a school-project about social norms.
I'm not the one who likes to do all the details, I would happily leave that to someone else so this was a challenge for me. But it is done! I cannot believe it. It did not turn out the way I thought it would, wanted to, but it turned out well I think, despite that. It feels good to get to really move on and be done with this one. I like it though, I really do.

“I have an odd belief that the character exists before they are designed, similar to Michelangelo seeing a figure incased in marble. His task was to set it free. So for me the joy of creating a character that I believe is real is at the heart of creating a memorable character." -Glen Keane

"Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose."
I think everything that can go wrong while you paint on Photoshop just did with this painting. 
No, two weeks to go and I'll just take a little brake from this one and start on something new. Yeah, I'll do that.

Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience:
this is the ideal life
This is my future contest entry about social norms. Yet it's too early to see how I've been thinking.
You see; it's the little details that counts, those who has not yet been placed.
It will be done in at least two weeks I hope. 

Something that is important to me when I paint is what kind of music I'm listening to.
It's mostly disney music really, to get the feeling out of that music to my paintings.
I've always been a sucker for all Disney music on the animated movies.

Also Dreamworks' music brings up all nice and comfy feelings that I want when I draw.

"Someone who knows the song in your heart,
and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words." 
So, I've added one more to my "friend-list" today. She seems very nice, and that's what inspired me to do this.
Only, this was not the first one I painted today, you see, I did two ones earlier. But today was not a good day for painting. They totally failed. Both.

You are the one I think about when I can't sleep,
and when I don't have the strength to get up.
For my sister
I really do will miss you but, I will also be oh so jealous every single day.

 It is as if the sun rose one day and were a black sun.
My lovely and oh so beautiful sister drives off to Norway this sunday for a whole year. My parting gift? This.

So, this short, very fast made little animation is in 30 pictures.
I can't believe how long it really takes to do this, I mean, not that it's not worth it, because I think that everybody whose has once done it knows that it always is worth it. Always.

Oh, how I pity those who have not yet found their passion. 
For how I feel when I draw this knew life; this knew person that I can see right away who they are and that I have made them who they are, is indescribable.
