Hi! Oh, it has been a while since my last update! That’s because I actually have been working on several commissions and projects lately. I hope to show you guys something from it soon :) Meanwhile I just keep trying to work on my painting skills and own projects. Here’s a new sketch I finished a few days ago! Again this illustration is based on the photographs I made in Croatia a few years ago. I really love the labyrinths of narrow, crooked streets! They are such a great reference for practicing with colors, lights and compositions :)

A new sketchy illustration finished! And a different environment for a change ^^ This illustration is based on the photographs I made in the beautiful old towns of Croatia. Currently I’m experimenting with brushes and color palettes. What do you think of it?

A few weeks ago I posted a sneak peek of an illustration in progress. Being busy with other projects (and being on a holiday ^^), it took a while.. but here’s the full illustration! It’s still far from being finished though.. oh, well :)

Another animation character study! This time from the lovely Pixar short film Geri’s Game. I really love that old man’s expression! The first illustration is the original Pixar image, the others show my process in Photoshop.

Some time ago I participated in an illustration contest, organized by the Dutch children’s book publisher Lemniscaat. An incredible number of 750 illustrators participated in the contest. I did not make it to the winners, but definitely check out the work of the winning 12 illustrators on http://www.lemniscaat.nl/illustratiewedstrijd/Wedstrijd! The illustrations above were my submissions to the contest. Three illustrations to the story of Alice in Wonderland!

Here’s a study I did of Disney’s character Anna from Frozen. The first illustration is the original image by Disney, the others show my painting process in Photoshop. I had so much fun painting this. Studies like these are very helpful, it learned me so much more about values, light and coloring. Hope to do some more soon!

Last I read an article about the wonderful landscapes of Patagonia. It’s so beautiful and inspiring. It’s definitely on my (enormous) travel bucket list! But for now, I couldn’t resist to make an illustration about it! I had so much fun making this. And it was a great way to practice my digital painting again. Still a lot to learn, but step by step we’ll get there.. ^^
