this calls for a giveaway!!

one of many medieval ladies i drew in my sketchbook today!

Turns out raccoons are not the easiest to draw…

I hope it will not take much time and you’ll get a working thing soon

turns out the power supply is a mess and doesn’t work properly, so we’ll have to send it back and get a new one. thank you komplett.se, for giving me a broken computer @__@

igotthewinchestersonmyside asked: Hi Ylva- fan from Germany speaking. I found some of your art in the fenris-tag and decided I wanted to have a look at your gorgeous art and I just spent like the last 5 hours going back through your blog until page 91 and I just wanted to leave you a message because I absolutely LOVE your art. Your hobbit and lotr fanart blew me away and made me ship Thilbo. But really, your art is so honest, adorable, loving, wonderful, intense and altogether so very beautiful it almost made me cry. I love you!

whoah you floored me with this message! (and that’s… a long way back, that’s… art from three years ago, please forget all about it omg) but wow, i’m so happy and flattered that you think so, just knowing that someone will spend 5 hours looking at my art… i will do my best to improve so i can continue to induce such feelings in people. thank you so much for this message, thank you thank you thank you!

remember when i was happy about my new computer earlier? HAHA. turns out the graphics card and motherboard’s port are both broken, probably due to poor handling?? good times.

Well, I got my amazing super new and shiny computer today. And in it lives a smashing 3TB hard drive…… Please stop me from installing every game I’ve ever owned ever.

Today is Ylva’s birthday! I have written long embarrassing feelingsposts for her birthday for two years now, which makes it tradition. It’s the one day in the year I can tell her in words how much i love and treasure her. Look, we’re Swedish. That’s not how it WORKS usually do you know how weird that would be? It would be so weird. 

What happens in English stays in English, though, so:

defira85 asked: Ahhh Ylva, happy birthday you wonderful woman! I hope your day is full of cake and love and presents and joy and music xoxoxo

thank you so much!!<3 i’m definitely planning on eating myself to death tonight!


happy birthday to me!!

zombie boy ahhhh idk

i don’t particularly mind that da:i is delayed, but i mind that it’s even closer to the last hobbit movie premiere now… there’s gonna be some serious explotions of emotions on this blog…

ooooh what material is this? what are you planning to make it look like? (sorry, art noob here)

it’s a wire armature, stuffed with tinfoil and some additional thinner wire over it, and then it’s super sculpey, which is a great and firm clay that is really nice to work with. 

and if it’s not evident yet, it’s a simple standing pose of a woman. we have a model in class for reference (she stands on the black platform thingy in the back of the pictures)

anyway this is what i did today, (i think that’s 4-5 hours) and we have another three days to go! thanks for asking :)
