Happy Easter 2017!

Hello everyone and happy easter to you!
Same as last year, I made an illustration for a postcard print to be send to family, friends and customers. I reused the characters I created for last years painting, further telling their story


"Sir Haresley, once again charged with protection of his orders sacred Idol, the Silver Egg of the great Easter. After it was stolen just the year before, the elders of the order decided to move it to a safer location after this years grand ceremony. His route to a protected fortress leads him through a dense forest where danger might lurk behind every tree..."
Sadly the prints for my friends and family will arrive late due to delivery issues. I hope they won't mind receiving them a week past Easter :p 

You can see the painting process here on my Youtube channel



Daily Drawings week 16 and 17... Catch up post!

Image
I've been rather lazy with my blog lately for no good reason other than.. being lazy?
But the daily drawings continued none the less. So this one will be a catch up post to bring you up to speed. So buckle up, there are a lot drawings to go through!

I present: The Pillow fighters! A set of characters that sprung from a silly dream I had about a huge pillow battle. A huge battlefield with trenches, barricades bunkers and all that stuff but the forces fighting where kids with pillows as weapons and armor. So I spent approximately one week just with characters inspired by that dream

93: There's not much to say about the characters themselves. No big backstory or description. Most of them are directly inspired by characters from said dream


94: And yes. In the dream some had shoulder pads and body armor made of pillows or cardboard, both loosely tethered to the body by strings or rope. Some had cardboard helmets and shields as well.


95: Some fought wild like berserkers, jumping all…

Daily Drawings week 15 and a short talk about taking breaks

Image
Again a delay, I really sorry about that! But this time, there's a rather good reason for it. I took A break from both the dailies and the internet as a whole for about a week to focus on portfolio stuff and to get a clear head. Because of that I also forgot to post last weeks summery. More on that later, lets get to the drawings first.

88: Father and son on the road. Playing with shapes, especially in the design of the father. As I get more loose and relaxed in drawing again, I start to experiment more in the scribble phase. Sadly it did not translate that well into the final drawing, but I'm getting there.

89: Throne-Shroom guard on duty! Keeping a watchful eye over the mossy forest floor. The little guy behind him is a rookie in training. He still has to get the stern look right but at least he's eager to be on the job.


90: Little fairy girl with her doggo friend. And boy do I need to practice drawing animals... and I should use reference when I do that D':
I got g…
