    Encyclopedia Animalia

    So this would be my Encyclopedia Animalia. I love zoology and anything animal, this journal will therefore mainly be devoted to my biggest inspirational sources; creatures both big and small. Some real, others made up.

    Oh, and I guess a few humans, enviros and mechs so don't worry.


    So this is the white-eared bludger bear(!), an omnivore native to the Eurasian tundra. This quick and rather rough colour sketch was drawn in Painter IX and coloured in Photoshop.

    Speculative zoology? I'll be keeping an eye on this!

    And the first piece ain't bad either...
    ...which is only my opinion.

    Nice start for a sketchbook. Keep them coming.
    I'm really excited in seeing more colouring. The fur you painted looks simple but effectively real! Keep 'em coming

    that is superb! i love the caligraphic line weight you're using - the hind quarters of the coloured creature reminds me of okami and the profile of the head reminds me of dave curd

    looking forward to 'the next batch'

    Simple sketches of a Giant Eland and a rhino, the Eland being one of my favourite bovids.

    Fantastic sense of anatomy. These are great. i guess you've been to the naturalhistorical museum and drawn a few times. I've been there from time to time, so much inspiration. Last time I sat and drew this rhino skeletion they have. The cranium of these beasts are fascinating.

    I haven't talked to theo for a while now. But we should definetly meet up and sketch some weekend.

    Theo said something about you working with Andreas (Yoonjin). Still working there?

    Oh - thank you! I am a complete animal nut and I have always been. I've kept the weirdest animals throughout my life and I've spent a lot of time in zoos. I agree, we should definitely meet up and sketch. Have to try and get Theo out with us as well. Here's my msn, if you feel like talking sometime. therese_larsson123@hotmail.com

    Yes, I'm still working with them. Well, not working per se, but I meet up with them about once a week for internship practise, so to speak. Andreas is teaching me matte painting and some 3D so I can help them with projects now and then. But yeah, I still see him.
