My name is Emmy and this is my sketchbook. When I started this I was 19. Time has passed!
I am now a working concept artist at Coffee Stain Studios, Sweden. I'm currently creating concept and promotional art for the game Sanctum (and Sanctum 2) I've studied videogame graphics at uni for 3 years and a bit of animation before that. I'm mostly self taught and taught by good friends though. This is where I dump my artwork and where you can witness my personal progression!

and here comes the first pics!
And some more I found lying around. O__o
I started this painting yesturday. My goal is to finish a painting without an lineart, since I've never done that evah.. Well, this is just the beginning and I'll be reconstructing most of her face.. I'll post my progress if I can and if you have something to say about it, I appriciate it loads.
Hey Fira, sup
This sure looks different in comparison to some of your older stuff that I remember from our WoW time I like the way you are going with this stuff, could end very interesting.
One comment would be to work on your underlying shapes, in some of them the interlocking simply doesnt work that great, and it feels like certain bodyparts get dislocated.
"Master storytellers never explain. They do the hard, painfully creative thing-- they dramatize"
Woo, Thargas! O__O Long time no see see..
You are definitly right. I am taking life drawing classes after summer and I can't wait.. I try to study anatomy on my own from books y'know but it's not as good as the real thing. I don't have the skills yet to match what I want to do and therefor things end up looking rather odd sometimes. I'll keep practicing. :3
Nice seeing you here! I like your sketchbook loads!
I really like your character designs. "Domi" and "domi2" in post 2 are very nice.
Hi Quinn! I'm glad you like those two. They were experiments I made while being really frustrated with facial expressions not coming through as I wanted them to.
Here is an update with three more pics.
Okay.. new update.
1. Some cupcakes I designed to be put on a t-shirt or a top.
2. Random sketch trying on a new angle of the head..
3. Practicing a new colouring tecnique and two characters interacting.. The background is totally off, I have to practice my perspective-skills.. O__o I have none at the moment.
4. Character design for the chick in the third pic.
a little update..
you know that I really dig your style hun and your characters are really getting some personality now. The new colouring technique is really clean and interesting though I would love to see some more colours incorporated into it.
Your anatomy could use some work in general but it is getting there. You are improving tons hun!
Cheers and keep rocking.
buckster: I'm gonna try to push more colour into my future works luv.. ^__^
An update with some work in progress. I'm kind of obsessed with GW's orcs and goblins at the moment..
Hey enmi, sweet start to a sb! Your character designs are all so unique and fun to look at The piece with the girl and the gun is eye-popping. And your latest seems to be going well! Hehe, fun concept too Well now, just keep updating!
Nice looking style! Great beginning! I'll keep an eye on your Sb!
Keep on posting, you stuff looks really good My favorite is the one with the three kids, so sweet!
Incredible style! Those lines are so ...flexible. And the colors...Well, I wish I could do such a beauties. Stunning.

So you like them anorexic girls HUH
ahaha no joke, but as a girl I'd like to see flesh!!
apart from that I like ur style, and never mind me, go on with it^ ^
"That's cute.... but it's WRONG"
Scary sketches (might cause health problems)
ok, ok so not scary, true. But the health problems I'm not so sure off...
AsaB: Thank you! I'm glad you like that pic, ^.^ I'd like to change lots of things in it though, but I don't think I ever will.
Utopia: Thankees! I'll try to produce more things to post in the nearest future.
nasheer: I'm glad you like my lineart, It's my favourite thing of all, playing with lines.
Isobel: haha, I guess I just love that tiny look, but I'll try to bring some more flesh onto my gals..
Grafguy: zid Licky likes you too! ^__-
Nice sketchbook. I find your first things, with the girl character very french comic style, I really appreciated it. The goblin on WIP didn't enthusiasm me too much. I really believe you could keep your style and use it for the goblin
keep here updated, please!
diggin your work, cant wait to see more.
your drawings are very cute!!!
Sketchbook please! http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=204442
oooh, I'm glad I stumbled in here love all the sketches, you have a really nice line stlye. Some of the colour translations work better than others: the new pastel colours are lovely....but in the girl fending off the hooded gun weilding character for example, the beauty of the pencils gets a little lost....I think it's partly down to textures-try to keep away from shiny shiny where its not neccisary (some of the top characters are guilty of this) and also pay a tiny bit more attention to the form (I think the hooded character isn't quite sitting in the percieved 3D space as much as he/she could
I really enjoy the last goblin, it is very much your style converted to this end, well done.
I think that you should add some value to the piece however, it seems a little flat. Use some darker greys to show form, yada yada, you know the drill ^^
Keep it up!
great sketches, I love your style. Perhaps doing some dynamic figure studies might make some of your pieces more interesting though. Keep up the good work!
Check out My Sketchbook!
anjin: I'm so happy you noticed my biggest source of inspiration! I've always wanted my style to have that european comicbook style rather than the feeling of japanese anime. I don't quite understand what you mean about the goblin though, but I'm really curious to find out. Perhaps there is something I can change now that I'm in progress wih it?
teq_sta: Jeei! I have an update for you in this post then.
Flaskpost: Tackar tackar!
curry23: thank you kindly. ^.^
daveneale: yeah, those character designs in my first couple of posts are very shiny shiny. I'm constantly trying to improve my digital colouring and I'm definitly focusing on putting the lights and shadows in the right places. Thank you for your critique! It's very helpful.
Buckster: Yup, I know what you mean dear.. I'll sit down and work on the values today if I have the energy.
Peter_K: I'm glad you think so! I've always thought that motion is what I lack most in my art. :3
Homeless Foxman: I'm taking a class after summer, studying the human figure and dynamic anatomy. I'm having some problem with the motivation right now when it comes to opening books about anatomy. But I definitly need to work on it. Thank you for your critique! ^__^
I just had to draw a cute girl with some more meat on her bones. I don't do that alot since my personal taste lean otherwise, but I love this little character I drew on the train a few days ago.
