I had to draw a gift for someone, so i drew some Noodles as a warm up! Jamie Hewlett remains a big inspiration for me, definitely.

hi guys! it’s finals month and that means i’m super cramped with studying/chain-caffeinating/crying in the fetal position these days, but i’m taking a while off to answer these asks i’ve gotten! so with no further ado, starting from the top:
-anon #1: sure, why not! 
-anon #2: hi there! ah, personally, my two favorite media are pencils (any pencil is fine, really, i’m not picky) and ink/water/paintbrushes. i don’t have a lot of money to spend on fancy art supplies, so really i just draw with whatever i have at hand! sometimes i use ballpoint pens, or charcoal, or crayons, or brush-pens… just whatever i have available! i’m not great at painting, but i like water colors and gouache. i really like the softness traditional media gives my drawings… i like working with my hands, and when i use traditional media it feels almost like i’m sculpting the drawing rather than, uh, drawing it, if that makes sense? i used to have a tablet years and years ago, but it stopped working in 2010 and i really can’t afford a new one… so now i do all my digital colors/touch ups with the mousepad on my laptop! haha. anyway, i say stick to what you like! use only pencils if you prefer that! (you can always alter the lines in photoshop for example, if the color/contrast is not to your liking.) however, it can be a good thing to mix it up every now and again just to develop new skills and to challenge yourself! that’s how i discovered my love for painting with ink/water. (also, yeah, definitely! i can’t say for certain just how soon, though, as my current focus is on surviving my finals! but i’m glad you like my stuff!)
- jameswilliamherondale woah, thanks a lot! hihi, så kult! det er så fint i bergen! har bare vært der én gang, selv, men… and hehe, yeah, someone has to do it! it’s amazing to see the response my drawings have gotten! i really didn’t know there were this many ds-fans!
-anon #4: thanks for the prayers, they worked! also, i’ll take a couple of those polkadot souls if u have any left, thank u
before i go, guys, thanks so much for following this blog! i’m sorry i haven’t been updating lately and i’m sorry that i won’t be updating for a while due to all my finals… hopefully you’ll stick around until i’m back! i really appreciate it!

Først og fremst: tusen takk!!!

(I’ll answer the rest of this in English hehe)

Well, tbh I don’t know any other Norwegian fans, personally (except for my sister)! I mean, I read the series as it came out (my dad actually designed the covers for the Norwegian editions! That’s how I came across them in the first place), and at the time there were probably more fans! Then again, I’m not sure… that was literally a decade ago… but, who knows - maybe it made a lasting impression on others as well, and maybe some people are even discovering it today! I hope so!

Also, I’m glad you like my Darren! I’ve always imagined him more or less like that… I think, looking back on it, I must have loosely (and unconsciously) based him off of Ray from Steamboy, hahaha. I used to absolutely adore that movie at the time!
