I haven’t done these in a while, but now that the second Outsider book (called Defiance) will be coming out on July the 14th I’ll probably be doing a lot more of these. There have been a lot of requests for me to draw Ragi, Halvard and Dag, so I’m planning to set aside a few days to draw them in the next few weeks before the second book comes out.
If you haven’t seen it already last week I did a post and a video all about my favourite blending techniques. I mentioned that I loved to use my paintbrush trick for pan pastels and in this video (along with the old Knud video I did) you can see exactly how I apply the colours.
I’d sketched Jarl out a few weeks ago but I wanted to do a proper drawing of him like I did with Knud and Astrid. I might re-do the drawing at some point, I’m not sure what it is but somehow I’ve managed to loose the kind look he had in the sketch, and in this drawing he looks a little harsher than he’s meant to.
