Dreamer girl

I started this long ago and kept making adjustments to it over time. I think I’m happy to stop here.

I want to add more detail but I feel like I’ll get lost in it and get way too detailed; then I’ll regret wasting all that time adding abundant detail that I’ll later want to remove but will keep because I won’t want to feel like I wasted energy, time and effort. So I’m playing it safe and will keep it minimal like this. Hopefully I’ll find a balance soon.

Girl With Twist Hairstyle

I’m still working with those watercolour brushes that I mentioned before. I’m really enjoying the natural feel of them. You can tell the creator worked really hard on them.
Anyway, what I did this time was draw the line-art with the default brush that comes up on Krita instead of the pencil brush. (Mostly because I keep pressing the button on the stylus by mistake and it reverts to it, lol, so rather than get annoyed repeatedly, I just went with it :D)

Manga girl that didn’t work out

This was an attempt to draw a character that struck me from a manga (probably by Yamamori Mika) that I was reading not so long ago. It was short side story but I liked the character so much I thought I’d try drawing her. I didn’t get the expression quite right so I ended up doing my own thing after a while not really trying to make it the same anymore. The hair is pretty close though.

Again I used the bright pink/purple colour to sketch with.. ^_^

The brushes I used here were downloaded from here – this guy has created the best watercolour simulation brushes for Krita that I’ve tried so far (and I’ve tried a lot believe me :)).

Digital illustration sketch

Thought I’d share process photos of this recent Krita illustration.
I started the sketch with a colour my niece was drawing with before me (she loves using my equipment and I can never say no – she’s so delightfully careful for a 5 year old so she’s earned my trust easy, but mostly its just plain fun with her around if I’m really honest).
I’ve found drawing with a different colour peps you up a bit so I think I’ll just keep doing it.
This is not done yet, I think, so I’ll leave it at this stage for now.

Windswept 


After three days working on this I decided to call it done. I’m trying to create a more mixed media effect by adding in bits of pastel and pencil marks.

Lady in Purple

I tried another abstract fashion illustration… I don’t know if ‘trying to layer splashes in a way that it looks like a dress’ counts for fashion illustration lol but I feel like I’m getting somewhere and I’m (mostly) happy with the outcome.

All Dressed Up

I’m always inspired by fashion illustration and sometimes I’ll ‘dip my toes’ as it were. This is another addition to my intentional attempts… I kinda like it but I’m not sure I’m quite settled on it.

Digital Abstract Portraits III

Continuing with digital abstracts, I decided to challenge myself and draw guys as well. Drawing male faces is that much harder for me for some reason… but I thought it would be cool to have a go at it either way.The bearded guy took me like three do overs before I finally felt ‘alright’ about it.

The abstract part is its own horror and if I’m not watchful it can get out of hand but its lots of fun all the same.

{These have all been on A3 sized digital canvas’ and today I thought why not try this same style on paper… so I took out an A3 sheet (I usually work half that or smaller) of watercolour paper and so far I have a face in pencil. I’m going to attempt being as bold as I have been with these digital pieces. (I’m saying this to make myself accountable and don’t chicken out) I’ll let you know how it goes ^_^*}

Digital abstract portraits II

​Still at it with the digital abstract portraits. I’m really enjoying working on these (even though it takes me ages before I can feel good about it!).

Digital Abstract Portraits

I decided to try painting the same way digitally that I do on paper and came up with these. It was so hard to not go the classic digital route with super fine detail but I think I did it! I will be trying more like this over time. I love the canvas detail background in the first one. In the second I tried a more papery feel.

P.S: All my gadgets are getting old so I don’t know if its my phone or the app but  the WordPress app isn’t working right. I’m assuming my phones too old for the past few updates they’ve given it. But I enjoy blogging here too much not to find a way around the inconvenience (it must be the community I’ve discovered since starting this blog – you guys are sooo awesome! ^_~). With that said I will be showing up less frequently… I want to say sorry but then I think you will have less to catch up on in your Reader feed (lol theres a pro side to everything) so its not a completely bad thing.
