As promised - this is my latest watercolor painting. The Nuke Tree, I call it.
Also looks like a huge broccoli. Anyway.
Have not held a brush for a while, it felt great and satisfying. One should never underestimate the power of water-based paint. The set I’ve got the one by Windsor and Newton - highly recommend.
The Nuke Tree was painted on A3 mould-made paper.
Hi all the anons.
Just to let people know: I am not the fan of anonymous messages, because there is no “answer privately” option when answering to those. I don’t mind private questions, but will not answer them if the reply has to go public, for a number of reasons. So please don’t take it personally if I don’t get back to someone (also some people get some kind of strange satisfaction from sending just one word or a syllable taken from some alien vocabulary, won’t be answered if not witty or entertaining).
Now gonna answer some of the stuffs that have been sittin’ in my inbox for a while.
1) Latest digital painting has been first sketched on paper, then scanned and redrawn in Photoshop using special pencil brushes.
2) Thank you for a compliment, am flattered!
3) Hi NYC, actually really wanna go there one day, have been thinking about that several years. Greetings from London!
4) If they commissioned them, yes.
5) It’s quite a vague ‘ask’, actually. I have always been told that my artwork styles vary (which I agree to, as I still haven’t found the defined one for myself, and don’t really worry about it at the mo), which makes it hard for me to put my work on the same shelf with someone else’s. If you define your question a bit more by telling me what styles you’re looking for (e.g.fine art, illustration, comics, character design, digital or traditional drawing/painting) I might be able to help :)
6) That’s very interesting, thank you! Had to look them up on youtube, as I couldn’t find any of their songs on Spotify (that’s what I use for my tunes).
7) That’s flattering, thanks for letting me know.
8) Hi Saffy, good luck with the course as I’m really glad to be out of educational system. ‘Don’t work and study at the same time’ is my advice, because that’s what I did and completing the 4-year course was challenging. Thanks for appreciation ^_^
9) Kevin, it’s still anon until you top it up with your personal detail.
I think it’s nice if you leave a name - then I don’t have the feeling I am talking to a faceless android. But still can’t figure it out whether your message was a discrete sarcasm or something closer to the surface.
10) Sure, might have time for similar requests in a parallel universe where I have free time, so anyone with similar requests please don’e be shy.
Sorry for a long post with no pictures, dearz, hopefully will be posting some watercolor stuff later tonight. M x
Absolutely spontaneous 30-second sketch turned into a weird lady who’s been redrawn from scratch in 5 layers and brought to life through a simple GIF. Wanted to create something weird yet stylish. More or less satisfied.
1) I wouldn’t get offended, as long as you send me a photo of the result!
2) More than I deserve, that’s for sure.
3) Thanks Jeremy ^_^
5) Cheers Glen, I’ll try my best.
6) That’s flattering. I always wanted, but never really thought I would be able to! We’ll see how it goes :)
Thank you for your support, peeps.
My latest digital painting.
"What was actually done that afternoon there is no need to describe, brothers, as you may easily guess all."
If you’ve read Clockwork Orange by A.Burgess, or saw Kubrick’s film, you might recognize the scene and what’s about to happen.
Wanted to illustrate it in a weird and somewhat sinister way.
Took a while, the original is of high resolution and quite detailed.
An infinite loop of an arm reproducing itself through a record player.
(Not really sure how that works).
No, but actually this is another one of my ink pen dotting slash hand steadiness practicing drawings.
Ever felt like two different minds occupy your body?
If yes, then that might be Multiple Personality Disorder (they call it DID these days). Or imagination issues, who knows.
Anyway, here’s a second 0.03 mm multiliner drawing on A5 paper I did, following the dotted style of Octo the Diver, in one of the earlier posts.
This is a Hipster wizard.
I drew him because…. I felt like it! Yep.
No, but actually we were pitching a game at work and this guy was sort of a side effect of a tired brain.
An ink drawing of a diver squid I did. With a 0.03 multiliner pen on A5 paper. That was rather satisfying - old diver helmets and tentacles always attracted me!
Thinkin’ of doing more ink drawings in the nearest future, to improve the steadiness of hand and all that sort of stuff. Been doing too much digital painting, need to get back to traditional old school pens and paper before it’s too late!
This is a GIF of a growing tree I made for a piece of interactive art I’ve been working on.
This animation consists of 40 frames, each drawn from scratch to give it the feel of something hand drawn and as little digital as possible.
The process was quite time consuming, but rewarding, I must say!
