Plane sketch.

Here's a sketch I did on the plane to heathrow:


Got me into a conversation with the passenger next to me who turned out to be an interpreter who knew about 7 languages fluently(!)


And here's where the painting below went after being rescanned: Skal Blurb

Quick sketch before making dinner.

As I am pondering a proper blurb for Skal, I decided to sketch out a possible 'side image' on the same page the blurb would be.



It's gonna be painted, then we'll see if it works.

Now! Time to make some chicken soup.

Painting progress~

This is just to show that I'm actually doing some work here, even if I'm mostly around relatives houses, being fed and caffinated. :P

Still very much being worked on (and the scanner wants to blur bits of it. arrghh)

Skal has been updated!

http://www.jenniegyllblad.com/skal.html

A new page has been added to Skal.
(I will rescan page 3-5 when I get back to the UK. The scanner here is too small)

Apologies for the lack of imagery in this post. I've been busy socializing in Sweden and doing the Skal update :P

Site has been updated:

Hello!

My site has been updated with 'past commissions' added to the Art section.

http://www.jenniegyllblad.com/art.html

I thought it might be a good idea to let people see some of the stuff I've been commissioned to do before :)

Also got a new commission for a large painting! So will start that when I get back to the UK (on the 26th).

Sorry about the lack of imagery. It's all down on the boards at the moment :P

Second concept of Skal character.

Some people who play the RP game Arelith may know who this one is :P



First sketch of outfit.

Possible final.

Unless I change my mind and do something completely opposite.

... It has happened before.



I think that's me, set for tomorrow.

One of the major issues I have is with the colours on this laptop screen. They don't display properly at all, so I don't really know what the pages look like on proper monitors. Erk...

To crop... Or not to crop... EDITED:

... That always seems to be the question.


The top colours came out VERY VERY STROOONG. Hm.



Want to show the way the colour sort of drains out of the bars at the bottom, leaving only the monochrome.

This image is supposed to be the image after the cover, where it says: Created by Jennie Gyllblad.

Since I wanted to cut down on clutter on the cover image.


EDIT:


Slightly tilted text.



Straight text.

Gettin' there.

Scanner in Sweden. (sneak peak!)

here's a zoomed in version of a single panel from page 4 of Skal:



No complaints there!

Only issue is when I scan whole pages...! They are larger than the actual scanner, so they get blurred. Will try to fix that somehow.

SKAL launch confirmed!

As written on the Bleeding Cool forum: Clicketh meee!, I am planning to launch Skal on Monday the 16th and update it every Monday thereafter.

I must admit I'm a bit nervous about the server trouble I'm having on my connection in Sweden, but trouble or not, I -will- get the first page of Skal up! Rawrrrr

In Sweden! Can't connect to my server! YAY. EDITED.

EDIT:

Server problem fixed!

the first concept sketch of my basilisk mount for Skal. Heavily inspired by the so called 'Jesus Christ Lizard' that darts over water :D I love the way they run with their hind legs out to their sides.

Steamdrunk! (harr harr)

Another pencil drawing of some interaction and scenery. It's really fun and satisfying to do!

Also, I know this one is a bit too wide for the blog:



So, go HERE to view it fully!


Oh yeah! And while I'm updating this, I might as well mention that I've updated my homepage, so take a look if you want: http://www.jenniegyllblad.com/

THE INTERNET IS BACK. Boooyaaah!

Let me celebrate with my favouritest expression to draw!
I speak of course of the 'unimpressed face'.



Draw it way too often. Can't help it though.

More renderererererererers.

This one still feels unfinished, so I'm going to work on it some more, but consider this scan a safety one.

Wohoo for wifi access!

Gotta love coffee shops.
Got free wifi here, AND was able to upload some pictures. Good stuff.
We expect to get internet back on the 4th. Couldn't come soon enough. Arfhggg..

Here are some renders and lineworks. Still doing stuff for the RPG portfolio. if all goes to plan, I should have it done by the 4th and just focus on sending it off that day.







First scene involving the thief character:
