Proud father

My friend Vebjørn became a proud father to a beautiful daughter four days ago, so this is my way to congratulate him.

Paul Newman - decisions, decisions...

I'm having huge difficulties deciding which version I want to use and if I'm done at all. Once I finished the pencil sketch, I was very satisfied with the outcome, but when looking at the original sketch as well as all these versions I've spent hours to make, I feel those hours have been wasted. Just look at the last one! He looks so yellow that he could be a Simpson-character!

I would love to hear what you guys think - does it look like him at all? And what can I do different?

I think I've worked so much on this one that I don't remember Newman's face anymore, and probably need a good night sleep to take another look at it tomorrow...

Lucky Number Slevin

In order to compensate for the lack of updates, I'll throw in an old drawing I've done. This is based on a screenshot from the movie Lucky Number Slevin, a hilarious scene where Slow (left) says something that doesn't make sense.
Notice the basic painting in photoshop. I've still not come a long way since this, to be honest.

Skiers sketches

In a tight schedule until Friday, I found time to sketch a little further on my skiers series. From top left: Petter Northug, Therese Johaug and Marit Bjørgen. I'm having trouble drawing Bjørgen and Vibeke Skofterud (not shown).
Since it's International Women's Day, I thought I'd try to finish drawing Norwegian's four top women skiers, but I did not succeed. I will try to continue in the weekend, though.

Kristin Størmer Steira

Norwegian women's skier. If you didn't know, the Ski World Championship was held in Oslo the past week. Us Norwegians had a lot to cheer about.
This girl with the cute smile has a face easy to catch. I will try to do the other three female skiers, but their faces is a bit more challenging. Stay tuned (if I don't give them up!)
