Pancakes #2

Here’s my second, gruesome pancake comic from the same doodle session:

I don’t know what got into me with these! How could anyone eat that tiny cute blob?! But they were fun to draw. And pancakes are delicious…

If you didn’t see the first pancake comic featuring my bf it’s here.

With this one, I thought I would erase the handwritten text and rewrite speech bubbles like I usually do with comics. But I decided to keep the hand writing in, because it’s a different look and easy enough to read (I think).

Also, it saved me a bit of editing time. I’ve been practicing my digital editing of drawings a lot this past year. But at the moment I feel like spending some more time on the hand drawing process (on paper).

In my last post I promised to share the original sketch book page, so you can get a glance at the chaotic ways of my doodlings 😀 Here you go!

Berry thief #2

I drew this second comic about berries disappearing in my parents’ garden after my last visit:

I finally got around to colouring it in today. I still have a long way to go with learning how to colour and draw plants and backgrounds. This is good practice, and takes a lot longer than it looks.

I think I rushed the colouring a bit this time, but I loved putting in the different greens.

Here’s the original panel with all three images:

Water struggles

Sooo… On a health whim recently I decided to drink some lemon water in stead of coffee. Because sometimes I forget to drink anything other than coffee all day, and I get a bit weird. And the lemon water actually was… nice.

But the trend didn’t really stick for more than a day or two, because I love coffee so much.

So I kind of drew this to inspire myself to think positively about lemon water, and not just drink brown water (which coffee is known as in our home).

I know, guys – my life is incredibly exciting. Sometimes there’s water drama!

Meeting a fluffy friend

So, I’ve been longing to get a dog for ages. However, it’s not very practical to have a dog in our apartment where it would be alone for several hours of the day.

Also, I might have a new favourite animal…

Last week, we went on a trip to a beautiful part of Denmark to mountainbike and hike (The purple blobs in the comic are supposed to be heather – Everything was purple and green!).

There were lots of sheep and goats hanging out in the hills. This particular teen lamb was extra cute and ran up to us to check us out. And then he/she just stood there for a while. Such a precious moment!

I’m not saying a sheep would be easier than a dog to have in our apartment. But I’m allowed to dream. Maybe we should get a dog and a sheep and they could be best friends?***

If you think this post has been too cute and happy and nice so far, I also got really excited when I saw a worm crossing a poop mountain in the middle of the road:

You’re welcome!

***Minutes later: I googled a bit and found this article from the Telegraph. So I guess that plan is settled.

More beachy people

When I’d started I just couldn’t stop drawing people at the beach. Here are some more:

The apprehensive guy with the bucket hat is a different version of the guy in the yellow bathing suit in my first beach doodle post. And he’s basically me at the beach when I haven’t gone for a while. I don’t want to get nipped by a crab!

Also, did you watch my drawing video of my other beach doodles? I’m definitely better at drawing doodles than I am at editing videos, but I also have about 20 years more experience with the former 😀

I’m working on some other non-beach doodles, so they’ll hopefully be up soon.

Drawing video: Beach people

I made this video yesterday during one of my beach people doodle sessions:

I’m still very new to filming and editing drawing videos, but it’s something I’m planning to do more of.

I’m learning about what angles work best and how I get proper lighting in a relatively dark apartment. This video is actually filmed upside down – with the camera in front of me – and then flipped 180 degrees. Which I think works okay.

It takes me a while to edit, but it’s also really fun, and it’s kind of weird to watch my own hands drawing 😀

Let me know if you have any other tips on how to film a drawing process!

Beachy people

Some people go to the beach when it’s hot outside and they’re on summer vacation.

My favourite thing to do these days, however, is to stay inside and doodle. Yesterday I drew these cool people at the beach:

I do actually love swimming in the sea, but right now I just want to spend all day doing my indoor hobbies which are basically only three things: baking, feeding my sourdough starter and drawing.

I go outside for a bit when it’s cool at night, so I guess I’m kind of like a vampire. Well, I don’t know how much drawing and baking vampires do while staying out of the sun. Maybe they are just people with a lot of indoor hobbies who got a bad rep. And maybe I should stop this tangent and get some fresh air…

I also made a video of my drawing process for the first doodle, which I’ll be posting later today. **Update: It’s here:
