Digital spicing

Has been a while that I posted a digital artwork. This one I tweaked recently – it was originally thought for a poster of a game where you can control water. The character design is by Ramon Contini, which you can find (along other cool stuff) on his website.

Work in Progress Lake2

For this one I have one more session. That will be a lot of work to tackle still – I only consider the central body part to be final.

Anna 2 – finished

I showed the WIP earlier – here is the finished version. The digital version doesn’t really show that I used gold paint in some patterns, was a lot of fun.

Portraits of Inez and Anna

Maybe I make better pictures whenever the sun shows up in this country … which might take several months :/ Anyways, playing around with new things in the paintings. Especially limiting the colors and values I use. The Inez painting got kind of a medieval style in some … Continue reading Portraits of Inez and Anna
