    Simonstalenhag stuff

    I don't have much digital yet, I'm new to the wacom. But I have a lot of old stuff. Let's begin with some of my old traditional paintings.

    And here's some stuff I got payed to do.
    The first is a cover for a book by Henning Mankell and the other is the cover for a catalouge from Mankell's publisher, Leopard Publishing. Hence the animal.

    Thanks for the kind words!
    The robot and winter landscape are digital. The first three posts are gouache paintings.

    I am quite picky at giving out compliments for unusual work but I couldn't help commenting on your sketchbook. I want to know however...you have many pieces here that are starting to approach photorealism. Are these particular pieces drawn over real life images? Or are they fully contrived?

    I must say that the scenery shots alone convey a great deal of romantic aspect to your character, the solitary objects and figures, the solitary places, the melancholy color choices, the point of view (such as the one from within the dark building looking out)...solitude!
    Would you say you have a predominantly melancholy or romantic character?

    The moods in many of those scenery pieces are captured very well. Very pleasing to look at, especially for me as I can identify very much with the solitude in those scenes.
    Keep them coming.

    Nice variety of wors and styles.
    I like mostly the painting in the first 2 posts. they look great.
    the hiena seems a little long I think and the leopard is a litle hard to read, maybe it would be easier with more shadow on the chest.
    cheers

    TROGLODYTE: Thanks for commenting! Regarding photorealism: I'm taking ridiculous amounts of photos, and many elements in the gouache paintings are based on those photographs. My album 2003-2007 consists of over 19 000 photos. And most of them are of places and moods like in these paintings. They're also from almost entirely one geographic location, which is a big island, -färingsö, in lake mälaren outside of Stockholm. Maybe 30% of those photographs are from a derelict factory, a place where I used to play as a child. So answering question nr 2: I would consider myself melancholic, from time to time, but always romantic. And nostalghic too, of course.

    VORAZ: I agree with what you're saying, hyena seems quite long and the leopard is pretty hard to read. The signpost are too dominant also I think.

    Some really interesting works here. You really capture the mood very well. Nice to see several media too. I only have a problem with the grass in the pencil drawings, bit too spiky I think. I like the one with the walker and the car most, nice use light, and a good feel of depth.
    Keep it up, would love to see more from you.
