Ameline


Finished the colouring. I hope it doesn't look too colourful....it's difficult to give the impression of a city at night without using a lot of colour - it was my first attempt of illustrating a city at night as well so I had difficulties anyway...:,D Her head looks really really weird, I know....strange angle, I need more practise.
Ah- and for Christmas...I want to have a fluffy kitten just like this.:3

Experimental Life Drawing

The last life drawing session was a bit different to the ones we used to have...and rather random.
We had to paint using both hands simultaneously all the time and constantly changing the materials which were quite unconventional as well..I've never painted with clay before... Also brushes were banned and we were left with just some sticks, spaghetti, real feathers and our hands. Oh well, I didn't get that messy with painting since kindergarten I guess.:,D It was totally liberating somehow...it's good to sometimes let everything go and don't even think about what your hands are producing.
The outcomes are ugly though...but good stuff for my portfolio apparently since they contain a broad range of different mark making techniques.

Ameline - Sketch


Sketch for a commissioned book cover. Pencil and some tints added with gimp.
It took me so many attempts to figure out the right composition...but I think I've found it now.
I love fluffy kittens.
