Nikolai Jonasson
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
Finland
My name is Nikolai Jonasson and I am an art hobbyist, YouTuber and music lover. Quite often I record the drawing process's of some of my artworks and upload them to my channel (check out the link below). What I always strive towards in my time-lapse drawing videos is a sort of a unity or balance of any particular piece of art, the animations or edits, and music. By trying to achieve such a trade-off I tend to not be as frequent with my YouTube uploads as I and my subscribers would want it to be the case, however I do believe that the quality of my content matters the most and the creation of it will inevitably take a lot of time. But don't worry, I'm still quite active or frequent on Instagram, Facebook and Deviantart with a few artworks that won't appear on YouTube as their own videos.

!!! Update !!!

Link to my first drawing tutorial: youtu.be/v4OUST0TOYk

I have successfully created my first drawing tutorial on how to draw Po from Kung Fu Panda 3 and will continue making drawing tutorials on characters from the same movie and other movies and even video games. I will eventually also submit a step by step drawing instruction on how to draw the Dragon Warrior to Deviantart.

Louis Armstrong Portrait by SuperNikolai1996
Louis Armstrong Portrait
LINK TO DRAWING VIDEO!!! CHECK IT OUT, YOU WON'T REGRET IT! youtu.be/J-uwSrH8a4k

Hello, I've been gone for far too long and now it's time to begin again! This is my first portrait drawing of 2015 where I'm experimenting a little bit more with the background as you have seen/ shall see in the video. I really enjoyed drawing this particular picture of Louis Armstong with his trumpet...

Louis Armstrong was born in August 4, 1901 New Orleans, Louisiana and died in July 6, 1971 New York City (NYC). He was an American jazz trumpeter, singer, and an influential figure in jazz music.

A bit of history about the genre: From the days of bebop (1940s), when jazz ceased to cater to popular audiences, and instead became solely about the music and the musicians who played it, jazz has been symbolically linked to the civil rights movement.The music, which appealed to both races, provided a culture in which the collective and the individual were inseparable, and in which one was judged by his ability alone, and not by race or any other irrelevant factors.  

Drawing by: Nikolai Jonasson aka SuperNikolai1996

Materials used: Conte/ Derwent black charocal pencils ,ordinary mechanical pencil with 0,5 leads, Conte color pencils, Cretacolor color pencils, white ink pen (Crown Hi-Jell korea).

Po the panda from Kung Fu Panda 3 by SuperNikolai1996
Po the panda from Kung Fu Panda 3
Hello, I'm finally back with another drawing, actually the first one this year. But this is not only a drawing but also a tutorial. Some days ago I uploaded a "how to" drawing video that includes my own step by step instructions, I actually tried it out 3 times before filming the actual drawing process. I am indeed going to draw the rest of the Kung Fu Panda characters but I would also love to feature your results in my future tutorials!

Here's the drawing tutorial video: youtu.be/v4OUST0TOYk

This video, alongside with the tutorial itself, was inspired by "The Simpsons Drawing Handbook", which I purchased on Amazon quite recently, and other YouTubers such as; Kazanjianm, Cartoonblock, MarkCrilley, Gorlepreturns and Orangemonkey92.

Now, you might be wandering: "why the hell is Po yellow, golden or even green- like in this particular drawing?" Well, the reason for such a strange choice is the Chinese colour symbolism behind all of the colours. The yellow colour corresponds to earth, is considered the most beautiful/ prestigious colour and according to an old Chinese saying generates Yin and Yang. Now as we know Po becomes the Dragon Warrior and as if that's not prestigious enough he has the same colour spectra as the Yin and Yang sign and actually illustrated it upon spinning with the last of Lord Shen's deadly cannon balls in Kung Fu Panda 2. However the yellow colour could correspond to something completely different and inappropriate so I didn't want to take the risk and stay true to the Chinese traditions. I used an ordinary HB pencil to create that shining or even golden feeling or illusion. The golden colour corresponds to nobility and wealth. The green colour, which could possibly be seen in this drawing, corresponds to health, prosperity, and harmony.

Nod If you would like me to draw your favourite Simpsons character just leave a comment bellow this drawing or even video with the name of your character and perhaps your top 4 favourite moments with him/ her/ it. Nod 

I used Derwent color pastel pencils to color the drawing if anyone is wondering.

Drawing Kevin the Minion from the Movie Minions by SuperNikolai1996
Drawing Kevin the Minion from the Movie Minions
Hello, some days ago I've uploaded a Minions drawing video on YouTube and I would like to share the result with everyone who has seen or likes the minions and some or all of the films in which they've appeared in. The reason for me choosing to draw them is the fact that I wanted to do a "little" experiment with these characters. I wanted to create an original video and drawing. The actual time it took me to create the whole drawing was 12 hours and the actual time-lapse drawing process video is only 5 minutes long: youtu.be/IX235eu2EBY &nbs…;Minion-Blah 

Please give me some feedback in regards to the actual drawing and if possible, after checking out the link above, share the video with your friends and family...most importantly keep calm and BANANAAAAAA!!!!!!!!Minions Emote 

Artist: Nikolai Jonasson (SuperNikolai1996)

Materials used: an ordinary mechanical pencil with 0,5 leads, Conte black pastel pencils, Cretacolor color pencils, Derwent color pastel pencils, white ink pen (Crown Hi-Jell korea), 2 black drawing markers and one blending stump.
