Haven’t posted anything here in a while, so here’s what I’ve been up to lately.
- Made a Millennium Falcon painting for a friend:
I drew it in pencil on a black canvas first and then painted it whith white oil paint. It took quite a long time because of all the details, but it was lots of fun. Here are some in-progress photos:
- Also I’ve been painting some watercolor sketches:
- And apart from that I also joined an illustration marathon by Ellina Ellis (it’s on Instagram #денькрокодила). So far I’ve done two of the topics, the first one was kings and queens and the second was little bird.
I got a beautiful pumpkin for my birthday a couple days ago, so today I made a sketch of it, and I like how it turned out.
I might try a watercolor later to capture the color too.
Here are some spreads brom my sketchbook. I’ve been really into drawing on black paper with white pens lately.
A spread from my sketchbook after watching the first part of Lisa Congdon’s Sketchbook Explorations class on Creativebug:
Here’s a link to the class:
My obsession with dragons is still as strong as ever. I have a special sketchbook dedicated to dragons (not to say that I can actually keep from drawing them everywhere else as well). Here are two of the latest sketches, made with a Micron pen and white ink:
The second one is a dragon city. For some reason I can’t stop drawing (and painting) these cities with tall bridges and arches, and I keep thinking of them as cities dragons could live in. I know they probably don’t even look like cities that much, but that’s what they are in my head.
I’m actually working on another oil painting of one of these dragon cities right now – I guess it’s already turning into a series, as I don’t think this will be the last one.
Another quick sketch of something I had standing in front of me: my favorite coffee cup and breakfast bowl. The cup is from Starbucks and the bowl from IKEA, so there’s nothing unique about them, but I still love them and use them every day, so I enjoyed drawing them.
I was too lazy to get up and get something else to draw, so I did a sketch of all the staff that’s lying around near my bed.
