Take Your Pet to School Day VI

There is always someone who needs to clean up the mess. In this case the teacher.

What other kind of chaos could the pets cause?

Character Design V

Tried something slightly different with this guy. Instead of the usual ink I used a coloured pencil for the outline.

What do you think?

Character Design IV

Another kid with her pet. Is it just me or do her eyebrows make her look like she is planning to cook the pig…. ? 😀

Watercolour and ink.

Character design

Time to revive my blog!

While I am working on something new, I am updating my portfolio with some older illustrations that I did a bit more than a year ago. Now properly scanned in. The idea was to practice character design. For this I chose the title Take Your Pet to School Day.

Take Your Pet to School Day

Continuation of the drawings I did a couple of months ago. Some of them I forgot I actually drew, some of them where unfinished and I finally put the final touches on it. The whole idea was to practice more elaborate scenes with several characters and happenings.

Any feedback more than welcome!

I also think it is also about time to buy a new scanner instead of using my mediocre phone camera.

Hello, What Are You Doing There?

Rabbit girl and ostrich. I wanted to try out my new watercolour paper and, inspired after being on pinterest for what feels like forever, I came up with this …

Inktober Roundup

After I felt like I was doing so well with my posting habits throughout October I fell into somewhat of a slump the last week. I have been focusing on drawing and several online are courses that I am taking at the moment instead.

I finished all of the Inktober prompts, however, I am not really happy how the last 3 turned out as I rushed them, so I haven’t posted them yet.

Here are all the other ones that I am quite happy with. I ended up with 33 drawings even with the last 3 missing as I did more than one drawing on some of the days.
