I´ve been drawing sparkly bats. Lots of them! I think the black paper accentuates their nightlife nature as well as all the glitter and metallic goodness of the inks. I made a timelapse video to show you the process behind these batlings.
This is a watercolour illustration I made to be used as a bookmark. The bookmarks based on this design will be released later on.
Follow me through my process in search for inspiration. I´ll take you to Hacienda San Miguel Regla where I fall in love with the texture of ivy leaves. Check out the video below!
Black cats, Ghosts, Aliens… Mab’s Drawlloween Club came to an end this year. The last week was the hardest (time-wise) so I combined some of the last ideas into single concepts. Managed to finish a total of 30 promts (missed the Custom Creature). My personal challenge was experimenting more with my tools and ideas. The most important thing was creating the habit of thinking conceptually and sketching daily.
More daily illustrations based on #mabsdrawlloween prompts! Definitely, the best challenge of the year.
October is usually my busiest month but I was looking forward to experiment on a daily basis. This year, I decided to give @mabgraves‘ Drawlloween prompts a go! The amazing amount of work I stumbled across #mabsdrawlloweenclub is outstanding! I love waking up to new art, it takes me back to art school. These are my sketches and illustrations from Day 1 to Day 13.
This is a super quick entry to update/talk about several new supplies I got recently. I was going to post something else (think video) but my laptop officially died this past Saturday.
Say hello to my 2nd Timelapse!
Watch me cut out the whole background with an x-acto knife. A keen and vulgar solution that delivered a new dimension.
Here are few entries from my sketchbook.
Above is a little study I did inspired by dear Anya. I included jellyfish ghosts (or something).
All of these were done in old watercolour scrap papers I found in my room. I was lucky enough to have saved them 10 years ago. As an update in art tools: I finally bought some Arches paper from Amazon as well as a watercolour paper sketchbook (and a few other supplies). The package arrived last Friday!
