Finland
I'm a 29 year old woman from Finland. I've been drawing since I was a kid but I never pursued drawing as a real passion which is a shame. I even quit the hobby nearly entirely during high school. I spent 10 years not actively drawing but after both of my grandparents passed away, I started to feel like I'm wasting my life just going to work and then sitting at the computer playing games for the rest of the day. So I picked up pencil and paper again.

Figuring out my desired medium has been a long road of trial and error. I dislike actual digital painting quite a bit and fell completely in love with colored pencils but in time it became painfully obvious how much time and patience color pencils require. So I spent a lot of money and time in figuring out what to use in tandem with colored pencils. Watercolors seemed like the most rational choice and I'm now slowly starting to dive into their world.

The pig and the cow by Sarosna
The pig and the cow

I made a drawing for my mum over a year ago with a pig and cow in it. I was never quite happy with the drawing. The animals looked stiff and I messed up the sky. I decided to finally do a new version on proper paper. I went really slow with this one. The sky alone took me hours to complete. Just remind me to never use Sky Blue and Light Ultramarine as the base shades for a sky again. Those blues are more grayish.

I also did the grass with individual flickering strokes. It was much less of a hassle than what I thought it would be. Strangely relaxing actually.

I seem to have a weird obsession about pigs and techno hair.

Inspiration for the scene came from Ni No Kuni soundtrack:

This is a bit depressing and whiny but sometimes I just feel incredibly shit about my art. But usually these feelings come due to the wrong reasons. So if you ever feel bummed out about your art, maybe this will help you too:

2 years of improvement by Sarosna
2 years of improvement
As it says. The improvement of the cloudmaker piece. Funny thing is that I was sick during the making of both these images. Back in 2013 I have a very high (39 degrees) fewer for several days. Now I only have a common cold. The earlier piece was so awkwardly sized that I had to resize and move it quite a bit.
