:iconyankeestyle94:


:jsenn: Please introduce yourself, tell us about yourself and your dA life?
My name is Jennifer Carlsson and I'm a 20 year old artist from Sweden. I've been on dA for almost four years.
:jsenn: Where did you begin with your artistic endeavours and What would you say your main artform is?
Drawing is something I've been doing since I was a little kid and it started with helicopters or at least I called it helicopters, but didn't look anything like it.
A few years later I started drawing horses and playing recorder. I developed a lot in drawing horses and playing music.

Drawing is something I've been doing since I was a little kid and it started with helicopters or at least I called it helicopters, but didn't look anything like it :P.

A few years later I started drawing horses and playing recorder. I developed a lot in drawing horses and playing music.

Then in 6th grade I started an orchestraclass and learned a lot about music and started playing other instrument like paino and guitar, which I mostly learned myself to play but the orchestraclass help me a bit on the way;)

I also kept on drawing horses and in 9th grade I could draw photorealistic horses.

But I wanted to take my drawing skills to a whole new level. Pencil portraits.
So I started drawing a portrait of Aro Volturi from New Moon because I was a huge Volturi-fan.

Now, since I started my first year in Highschool, I'm very good with portraits and I'm developing more and more.

I also still plays recorder, piano and guitar and just keep getting better ;)

Best regards
Jennifer :D

Red Dead Redemption II
Finished Result of my latest project which is a collage and tribute to my favorite video game series Red Dead Redemption by Rockstar Games.Gun Emoji :cowboy: revision 

DRAWING VIDEO: www.youtube.com/watch?v=0onmOO…

Facebook: YankeestyleART

I made everything with a combination of mostly soft pastels and some ink and markers for the text and logo plus the black silhouettes.Pencil Pencil Pencil 

I just love everything related to the Wild West and to be able to experience living in that era was just amazing to me and made me fall in love with the game right away.

This collage is of course a tribute to Red Dead Redemption II which is pretty obvious with the main character Arthur Morgan in the center.Love :cowboy: 
In my version of the story there was a stag/buck that showed up in Arthur's dreams and some other parts of the game, so that's why you can see the silhouette of a stag/buck in warm colors that blends with Arthur's jacket.Elk Llama 

 And of course in the corner on the lower right you can see the RDR logo and my favorite quote from the game: "When the time comes, You gotta run and Don't look back"Heart 

For the video I made a cool intro with some western sound effects like gunshots, horses, desert winds and much more for the Spaghetti Western feeling.

When the words "RED DEAD REDEMPTION" pops up with each gunshot you can see some stars in the shatter which is tribute and reference to Rockstar Games logo that has a star in it. Star! 

I made everything in the video including the music which has a cool southern rock sound to it with both acoustic and distorted guitars and some beautiful flutes.

There's one part of the video where I'm drawing Arthur where the music has only an acoustic slide guitar in a 
melacholic melody with the flutes that slowly builds up and that part is what I would call "Arthur's song" since it kind of describes his character.Heart Music Guitar 

It took some time to finish this project since I wanted to make a cool drawing video and I also wanted a cool background music that fits as a tribute to the characters and the video game.
But I just looove how the result turned out and I think this is one of my favorite artwork I've made so far with all the colors, the video, the music and of course the Wild West theme.

New Project WIP
Work in progress of a new project. I've just finished half of the outlines and when all the outlines are finished I'll start working on the coloring part of the drawing.
And like before, I'm going to use soft pastels since they are so easy to use for blending and creating a more realistic effect than colored pencils.

I will also include some calligraphy ink in different color(mostly white & black) for the text and some other finishing touches. ;)
