Doodling along



Just some quick drawings from my sketchbook I did for pure enjoyment and relaxation.
Finally drawing pixies again, it's been a while without them.
Thinking about starting a new project.....

Collecting Memories


I don't know why but I found it extremely difficult to pick the right colours for this one...
Her dress had at least four different shades, luckily I painted mainly with acrylic paints so I could go over and over it again. I'm still not satisfied with the colour sheme, it's far from what I intended it to be.
The perspective is quite alright I guess.
I really hope my lovely art trade partner will like it and will recognize her character as well.
I don't think I'm very good at capturing the likeness of another artist's OC. :/

Ink & Tint


I Finally continued my latest painting and pretty much finished inking and underpainting in one go.
Inking used to be the part I disliked most but I enjoy it more and more these days..especially if there are a lot of details. Also I formed the habit of creating sepia/orange underpaintings which really help to create an atmosphere and harmonic colour scheme, since you don't need to think about different colours and how they'd go together at all but can completely focus on light and shadow first.
Now I'm gonna start applying colours on top.

By the way, I'm currently taking part in a competition with my 'Sacred Hoop'. If you liked the book you can vote for it here: [Link]
I'd really appreciate your support. Thank you in advance.:)
