    Mirre's Mix

    Hey there!

    My name is Linnéa, online I usually go by "Mirre". I am from Sweden, and aiming to become a professional illustrator. I have been lurking ConceptArt for quite a while, haha. I thought it was time for me to become more active here.

    My greatest artistic influences and sources of inspiration are, Hans Arnold, John Bauer, Chris Riddell and Sven Nordqvist.

    I will always be happy to receive constructive criticism, and I truly appreciate it when someone takes the time to look at my art and leave a comment.

    Some assorted life drawings from sessions at the art school I attended for a foundation year.

    Picture one are studies of models in movement, the rest of the sketches speak for themselves I think.

    Some are drawn in mechanical pencil, a few are sketched directly in ink.

    The numbers in a few places note how much time I had to make these.

    Thanks, bro! :D

    Here are some more sketches from a monthly sketchfest. Each in under one hour, and subjects based on prompts by other people:
    1) Art Nouveau Pirate (pencil and pigment liners)
    2) Fairy Nouse in a Forest of Bonsais (pigment liners)
    3) Golem/Artficial Life (brush-tip ink pen)
    4) Red Monkey With a Blond Hair Tuft (pigment liners and PhotoShop)

    Looking good, i feel you're more comfortable with drawing females than males from the smoothness of the lines?

    i guess my only critque would be to draw more males, and try to draw them without lifting the medium (pencil etc) up off the paper..

    Mirre from Pixeljoint? Or is it Pixelation.. your name is familiar..

    Good job, Hope i see more!

    Tikeshe: Yes, yes. I am definitely more comfortable drawing females, but trying to better that. We only had males models a spare few times during the whole foundation year, which was a bit disappointing. I will try your suggestion the next time I draw a male!

    And yes, I am! From both! : D Could I ask what your username is over there? I don't recognize "Tikeshe"...

    The drawings of the lady are very good and you have captured the female curves well.

    I'm guessing you've tried using Posemaniacs for the male poses?
    Other than that, you could look in the topic in References.. ''male references'' or something. Deviantart may also be enough just for quick sketches, or whatever

    My names Quake on both, Pixelation and Pixeljoint. Really need to pixel more, but never seem to sit down and focus. Oh, and i've been trying to pixel anatomical things.. but alas, i have no working scanner anymore so now it's harder to draw figures

    Once i get a scanner (which should be in 5 days, if i get my uni grades) i'll start pixeling more

    Thomas: Thank you very much!

    Tikeshe: Ohh, Quake... that's a name I recognize. And yup, I do use posemaniacs quite often to practise poses and anathomy, but I think I need to see real people with, you know... skin, and varying body types. But you're right, maybe I can find some stock on deviantart to practise on!
    I never do pixelart from sketches (or at least only on extremely rare occasions). If you do need a sketch, do it in pixels is my recommendation! Otherwise you can get too attached to the lineart of the sketch and limit yourself by it.

    Tikeshe: Thanks for the links! Those are great. : D

    Sonia Leticia: Thanks!





    Some concept sketches:
    First one is of hovering sci-fi vehicles for a story that I am working on.
    The three after that are of monster designs based on emotions.
    And the last is a random monster I drew as a parody on rockabillies, and Grease... can't remember why though. But he's named Billy!

    ColorExcursion: Thank you, thank you! Might post more monkeys at some time, since it's one of my favourite animals.




    Some life drawings from tonight(!). I managed to snag a spot in a small life drawing group that had some drop-outs. I will attend two more Sundays this month.
    Most are in pencil, two in pigment liner.

    Lovely art

    Some faces maybe?

    Not sure how much time you had on each model so i won't say you did it because of lack of ability..

    Although, i've not seen a lot of faces

    FACEsFACESFACES Please.

    Really inspirational, hope i get my scanner soon... Got about 40 pages i need to scan :L

    Can't wait to see more.

    Portraits hmm? I put something together for you. The life drawings lack them because I rather focus on the bodies when I draw models. Faces I can draw anytime. And I also sketch faces alot as it is!
    Oh, and the small numbers on the life drawings indicate how much time (in minutes) I had to draw them!


    The first two are portraits of friends of mine. The others are original characters, drawn from imagination.

    There's some good foreshortening and the figures in general. Some critiques though, on the 2nd picture way up at the top, the second figure down on the left, were the guy is leaning on the wall. The arms aren't foreshortened to suggest he's leaning on a wall. According to his feet, there's a substantial amount of space between him and the wall so his arms should be more foreshortened. The Frustration and Sadness monster should also have more form, the way you did with the figures, even if it's not super detailed. Actually, drawing the monsters aren't much different from drawing humans, so you'll do fine.

    Love means never having to say "you're a special snowflake."

    And my blog

    I think your nude sketches are very nice, I like the fact that some have a slight comic style (like n°15 in your first post) and the lines are sharp.

    On the last page though, it is clear that when working with the ballpen/fountain-pen you work with small short strokes. You might want to try to make only one line instead, giving your figures more dynamism. (it is a problem I have too)

    I really enjoy your little monsters and would love to see more of them
    Keep up the good work!

    Thanks for the input, guys!

    NicoleWG: Thank you, thank you! Although I think I definitely need more foreshortening practise.
    The monsters will get more detailed pictures in the future, these were just tests on their concepts. I also think I need to study more animal physique before that... but anyways, thanks for the recommendation!

    [Rh˙nn]: Thank you! And yes, I do indeed tend to work in small strokes, I am trying to move away from that but it is so hard. (Much easier with pencil when I can erase a line if it turns out wonky!) I also should use another pen next time... this one bled alot of I held it against the paper more than briefly.

    A few pages from two of my sketchbooks.

    The first two are character design sketches, for one of my original characters that I am re-designing.
    The last one is a portrait of my Mother. I was pleased with it, but when I look at it now her eyes seem a bit big in the portrait.

    Sketch from yesterday. I skethed this on grainy watercolour paper - which is why it looks kinda gritty. Going to go colour this with gouache!

    The character is named Calluna and belongs to Amy Clark.

    Very good figure drawings! Be more careful when drawing heads. Sometimes you draw the eyes to close together. Keep it up.

    fantasyartist: Thanks for pointing that out to me! I'll definitely keep that in mind.



    Sample submissions I recently made for a couple of jobs. That I did not get - but it was good exercise.

    The first is very quick sketches of a lilac tree and a lilac flower.
    The next three are illustrations for a bedtime story. The first two were done within one hour and the last within three hours.

    Painted the sketch from a couple of posts ago. I tried my hand with gouache on this. It's only about the second painting I have ever done in the media, and I clearly need more practise. But I am still quite happy with this. My scanner fails in picking up the right colours of this painting though... so I had to tweak it alot with Photoshop.


    The character is named Calluna and belongs to Amy Clark.
