Aftermath by Drak-Joen
A drawing I started without quite knowing where I wanted to go with it. Hoping to make a digital version with colors and all some day.

Fun/horrible fact: the background is based on photos of french forests during the first world war. Those photos are surreal.
They used to be people by Drak-Joen
They used to be people
"There are things in these tanks..."
12 didn't like the tank rooms. Their inhabitants were often asleep, or at least in some state of mind similar to sleep. But some of them were always aware. Aware of 12. And when she looked at them through the thick glass, 7's words echoed in her mind:
"...they used to be people."
12 didn't like the tank rooms.


Inspired by the beginning of Baldur's Gate 2 and Imoen's reaction to the tanks in Irenicus' dungeon. Man, that place was unbelievably creepy the first time you went through it. Not quite as creepy the 94th time...
World Poetry Day by Drak-Joen
World Poetry Day
An illustration I made a while back for Språkstudion, a language learning resource center at Stockholm university. This was for an event celebrating the World poetry day with poetry reading in multiple languages. I still feel bitter for missing the event itself.

Want to know more about Språkstudion? Check them out here:…
Spacesuit size by Drak-Joen
Spacesuit size
If the shoe fits - wear it. If the space suit doesn't fit - wear it anyway. Or, you know, implode.

Nothing quite breeds procrastination like working freelance from home. Today it resulted in a collection of some good tutorials that are useful for both traditional and digital drawing/painting. Check out the collection among my favourites. There are some really talented people behind these tutorials.

I think it's easy to underestimate how much we can learn form tutorials, guides and stuff like that. I've often thought "hey, I don't need to read, I need to practice!". And it's true. But at the same time it can be a lot easier to practice with some guidelines to start from.

So, yeah. Check out a tutorial. Keep practising. And remember that it's all about doing something you love, right?
