Back from Denmark and the Stenchcrawl #27

Got back from a small holiday in Denmark, great times! So good to meet up with old friends and familiy again.

We even managed to drag our corpses to the sketchcrawl #27at the Danish National Gallery after 5 days of instant partying.

man drawing while hungover is hard. But kinda interesting too, it feels like your brain has been set back to a previous state, and a lot of the knowlegde you use when describing form is lost. I felt I was relying more on simple tricks to try and make it look 'ok' rather than really studying the form. Something I see happening in my drawings when I'm sober too, and really want to avoid.

Here's my first drawing in the morning of our table before we left.


However it was really good fun, and I did feel like experimenting a bit more (what was there too loose?) and it was great to see how many people turned up for the event, I think we were around 15 people, a lot of really good artists. I just felt bad about the way I smelled.

On my way home my flight got delayed (why does this always happen when I'm in good time?) and with my brains slightly regenerated due to moms cooking I got a bit more sketching done.

And a drawing of a frog from reference, in photoshop.

Jamen Søren dog! Sikke en awesome tudse, der... Skitserne er osse fine, men har bare aldrig set dig tegne fotorealistisk tror jeg.

Tak Mads, ja flirter lidt med det mere realitiske for tiden, synes det er en rigtig spaendende udfordring.
foeles virkelig someom man laerer noget af det.
