The Troll and his Bird of Prey

So I want to Start doing things more serious and get into Illustration/ Concept art Field. Either I will do Freelance or I will try and get a job. Either works fine for me! I am working more Digital than Traditional ( I have moments when I feel that I am slacking off from Traditional ) but... I am enjoying this. 

So...

The troll and his Bird of prey! 

Like Someone told me.. If i want my work to be noticed I got to add stories behind my characters. So The Story is:

Though people think all trolls are evil! This one is from a Village up in the mountains where the trolls live in peace with nature and their companions. They travel from village to village using their trusty Mountain Ram. They have a way of receiving fast news by using Birds of prey. That's about it.

Inspired a lot from Mongolian culture.

Thanks for watching and reading! Time to do some color studies!

Portrait

So I have been working with digital and traditional media lately. I am starting to accept commission from traditional media to digital media. 

But this is something I did and i wish i had enough money to send it to him. But one day! I will have that money and He will receive the gift! Something better as well! hehe! 

Dunno how much time i spent on this. But i am starting to get into synthetic brushes again. Helps me get a certain smoothness that i like.

I haven't felt very well this week... but today I managed to paint this little painting. 

Alla Prima oil on canvas, 42x33cm, like 4 hours work. It was really dark and I think I will continue with the museum next week. Need to rest my brain and my eyes. The museum is also stressful because of all the people there.

Sketching....

Sketching improves your art a lot... I draw from photos and teach myself about puting time and thinking in what i do! It helps me get faster... faster in the way that i see shapes and i understand the objects at a faster rate.

Museum day 5

This one was a pretty hard one to paint though it looks so simple... why? Well because i did not have a good position and i always moved around my subject instead of having just one angle! I wish to put more time into my paintings! I will also, maybe, get this chance to go to the deposit of the museum and paint more than just birds ( the mammals that they are showing, not so many to choose from )

Anyways: Done at Nature Museum Stockholm/ Sweden almost 7 hours alla prima oil on canvas. 
Specie name : Eurasian Hobby/ Lärkfalk
