Currently studying traditional gilding and faux art painting in Tibro.

I'm mostly known for my tutorials I used to make some years ago, nowadays I'm more focused making my own artworks.

I'm very active on my tumblr, go there if you wanna see stuff I haven't posted on dA!
Hello there watchers.
As you've might noticed I haven't really been updating my dA gallery that often, nor have I been livestreaming or posting any new journal entries.
I'm still using this account, but nowadays just for browsing inspiring art or when I need resources like references or stock photos.

This is all because I'm more active on my tumblr blog. I've found the structure and concept of Tumblr to fit me much more than DeviantArt in terms of communicating with my followers and friends online.

And currently I'm studying Faux Painting and traditional gilding in a little town called Tibro.
What is Faux Painting?
Well it's basically the art of imitate realistic wood and marble stone texture.
Faux painting is a old classic kind of traditional art. So I've been working a lot with oils and pigments. And I've also learned how to use regular beer as a binder for pigments (instead of using water).
Here's some examples of marblings I've made this far:

I really enjoy it, especially since I've wanted to take a break from only doing digital art. And I also have discovered so many various and cool kinds of marble stone there is out there.

I've started to upload some videos on my "new" youtube channel where I gild some stuff with metal leaves of various…

When I get the opportunity, I will scan/photo the marble painting I've done and submit them here as resource collection for you guys to use for reference/texture etc.

So I think that's about all I've got to say for now. I have a few artworks I haven't uploaded in my gallery yet, so let's hope I can get a wee bit more active on this account again.

You have a mohawk, right? What do you do to make it go, y'know, up?

I style it by applying "Osis+ Dust It" in the hair, and then I tease it with a comb to a solid mass. Finish it with "got2b glued" hairspray. Done!

Likulia Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2014
Hey. I found you on bad webcomics. Here's the link if you want to see-…

They wrote, "This person went from making one of the most ugly, most disgustingly stupid and offensive comics I have ever seen in 2011, to being a real, talented and versatile artist by 2013 that most of our review subjects can only aspire to resemble."

So... I dunno. 

You probably already know about it.
