Long, blond guy living in central Stockholm (Sweden). Born in 69. Is working with

alternative rock, new metal, electronic music, movies and sushi. Dislikes: R/B, cheaters,
garlic, sports and closed minded wankers that doesn't respect other peoples way of
life. Discovered the furry fandom on the net some years ago. Had drawn furry pics
before that (most dirty stuff ^v^). Was surprised that there is a whole furry
Some of my biggest sources of inspiration are Frank Miller, Dark One, Simon Bisley, and Philip Bond.

I usually start out with one or more small rough idea sketches. I tend to get good ideas
weekend mornings in half sleep. When I have drawn a small sketch that I like, I draw it
in bigger scale on a thin A4 sketching paper with a mechanical pencil. Then I ink it
with a fine black marker pen. I erase the led, and scan the picture with my cheap flat
bed scanner (in high resolution, 300 dpi). The picture is imported into Photoshop and
resized to a smaller size. In Photoshop I can modify details in the B/W image. As an
example, the legs were to short on the Amlin paper sketch. That was easy to rescale in
When I am satisfied with the B/W picture, I start to colour it. I work with layers when
colouring. I place the B/W sketch at top as a 'multiply' layer, and then I add (below) a
layer for every material in the picture (Jacket, fur, pants, skirt etc in the Amlin
picture). I colour these layers with the colours, patterns and textures I like, but do not
concern about light and shadow. Instead I add one or more separate layers (multiply)
where I draw the shadows and a layer with highlights (hard light) that I also place over
the colour layers. Working this way, I can go back any time and change the patterns on
the fur, or the colour of the pants without having to redo the light/shadow work. Finally
I add background, signature and texts to the image.
