time for some anon asks! as always non-anon messages get answered faster because then i can reply to you privately.
1. i think i answered something like this once before, but it’s probably lost in my tumblr somewhere. for lumi i imagine something like a mixture between helena bonham carter and björk. she sounds tired when she speaks. for tristan, i used to imagine someone like matt smith? but i’m not convinced by it haha XD i’d say that his voice changes to something cuter/more childish when he changes into a frog. sindri is the hardest, i’m torn between someone like ron perlman or tom waits and benedict cumberbatch (like smaug maybe??) or tom hiddleston. it’s definitely a bit hoarse and everything he says is pretty deadpan.
2. that’s a really broad question! if you want to know something specific (like this tutorial) i’d be happy to try and help though?
3. i’m half swedish. it’s a weird thing where i can’t speak it but can understand it, depending on how fast someone is speaking/what dialect (with my family it’s mostly småländska). i’ll generally be able to get the gist of what they’re saying, but won’t be able to reply. i can’t write or spell at all >m<

here’s my attempt at hourly comics for this year. last year’s here!
i don’t think i’ll do it again next year, i end up never doing anything because i’ve spent the whole day trying to keep up with the hourlies…i meant to tick off way more on my to do list today…

a blind drawing of my cousin&#8217;s girlfriend, and then a drawing based on the blind sketch, so it doesn&#8217;t really look too much like her anymore, but i liked it enough to post it.
i&#8217;m in sweden visiting family at the moment! (hence the crappy phone pictures). i brought my bottle of ink with me so i could draw some hemlock, wrapped it in 3 plastic bags so it wouldn&#8217;t spill in my hand luggage, and then when i took it out for security&#8230;someone bumped into me and i dropped it. the bottle cracked ;n; maybe i will get someone to drive me to the next town over, there&#8217;s no art shop here&#8230;

two pages of &#8220;hemlock&#8221; this week!
i was looking through the sketchbook i had when i first started hemlock (for something unrelated), but i thought i&#8217;d scan a couple of things i still liked to show you guys. man, 2010 feels so long ago!
i like the idea that sindri is so pale in his witch form that he&#8217;s almost blue, like as a night thing he can&#8217;t get the concept of melanin quite right. i think that really bright blue was the only blue i had on hand when i drew this though&#8230;look at that john bauer crown, dang.
some ulla ideas, back when i meant for her to be lumi&#8217;s sister. i think i changed her hair to black (or dark blue) to differentiate her once i scrapped the sister thing.
(i just really wanted to scan this kolya face, he looks so upset)
