I will go on holidays tomorrow with my girlfriend to visit the parents, so this will be the last post before Christmas. Below are the last of my caricatures, I did for my family. Please don't tell them they are here, because I want to surprise them with those. ;)
I wish you all merry Christmas and I hope you can enjoy the holidays with your loved ones. I certainly will. :)
See you soon
Today I was totally busy preparing the apartment for the baby-girl. I can't wait to have her here :) It feels a bit like I get dragged away from my dream (painting / drawing), but I think that I will have a new perspective on that as soon as she is born. In the end I am doing all this not only for me, but to help sustain a family. And that family will grow soon. Infact I feel like this gives me a lot of energy and focus and I think that I have a way healthier view towards doing art than before. But I am rambling now, so back to arts. below are the latest results of my caricature-grind and a color study to understand fire-light better.
Here ist the 5th assignment for the class I am taking over at Schoolism. We had to warm up with caricature sketches of 3 random people. Then choose 1 of 2 celebreties and paint them with a split-complementary palette.
I never worked with limited palettes before so I learned a ton this time. There is still a lot that I don't know, but I feel like I found an entry into a new area, that was unknown to me before. I will definitely explore it more in the future. :)
after roughly 3 hours
the final caricature
here is a self-portrait in pencil I did for Color Scale Design, where I am part of the "Little Portraits" - project. In short: you order a sketchbook, you send in a picture of the person the sketchbook is for, we draw a portrait of that person on the first page. This can be for a business partner, someone's birthday, a gift to a creative person, anything really, it doesn't matter. So if you want to have or give away a personalized sketchbook, check out the official vendor-page
and to stay up to date with cool posts
and finally the self-portrait.
This is my blog.
I will share information about workflow, my insights into image-making or just general thoughts and rants about being an artist.
