Gardening

Pewter Blue is the chosen color for this week #colour_collective on twitter.

I decided to depict His Majesty, King Octo, while sanding the rare pewter corals.

His Majesty is in fact very fond of sea-gardening, and  never fails to take care of the rarest a most beautiful ocean’s treasure!

Good Old tecnique here.

Have a Nice start of Autumn Everyone!

Whooping Crane

Guess What? Whooping Crane is the endangered animal for this round #AnimalAlphabets on twitter!

The Whooping Crane is the biggest bird in America and is endangered due to habitat loss.

This time I decided to use a more realistic and less cartoonish style. I depicted my Whooping crane with her little baby chick, surrounded by embellishments.

Old tecnique here. Nothing to declare.

Have a Whooping Week Everyone!

Wicked

Vert Pré is this week’s colour for  #colour_collective. It is a vivid shade of green.

In the moment I saw this colour I taught of the wicked west witch from “The Wizard of Oz”.

So here it is my wicked witch, with his skin as green as the envy for the merry quartet (+ toto) on the yellow brick road directed to Oz. But the road to Oz is also the Witch’s hat!

Ha! What a magical idea! (self-satisfaction moment!).

Jokes apart, basic solid technique here, with the use of a material called “flash of light” on the back of the hat to get a billboard effect.

Have an Emerald week-end everyone!

Vaquita

The Vaquita is the endangered animal for this round #AnimalAlphabets.

Only 30 vaquita remain on the planet. It is a very endangered species.

So here it is my very sad Vaquita, reading 100 year of solitude on the bottom of the sea.

Hoping that the Vaquita will survive I leave you with my illustration. Old drawing tecnique here.

Have a happy Week!

A Winter Tale

“Timberwolf”, a shade of grey, is the main color for this week #colour_collective.

For once I decided to go boldly with the chosen color and colored my drawing with only shades of grey.

The name of the colour made my mind run wild and a little story came to life. The story of Winter. Read the comic and you will know it!

Do I need to talk about the tecnique? Maybe not, solid colors and cell shading! That’s all folks!

Happy Reading EveryOne!

Ulysses Butterfly

“Ulysses Butterfly” is the enangered species for this week #AnimalAlphabets on twitter.

I decided to go for a comic look and tell a little story. The Ulysses butterfly in my illustration is really the butterfly of Ulysses!

On the magic isle of Eëaland of the witch Circe’s Bed & Breakfast, Ulysses and the Butterfly met.

The two of them bonded immediately and had an awesome time sunbathing and hiking  (yes butterlies really like to hike!) on the island!

Ok, maybe the story of Ulysses and the Ulysses butterfly is not exactly like this, but, hey, you need to go wild with you mind sometimes!

By the way no one has never complained about Circe’s Bed and Breakfast! Not even a pig!

Have a Beautiful Week Everyone!

Pink!

“Shocking Pink” is the chosen color for this round  #colour_collective.

What Pink is made of? It’s made of Unicorns and Rainbows and candies and stars and butterflies and hearts! And music playing in your ears while you are skating! Yes Pink is made with all this and much more! Just feel the pink and go with the flow! 😀

Plain basic style here, flat colors and black (or colored) outlines, no shades.

Here you can see an early appereance of a very special guest (who’s identity I can’t reveal for now) and a sneeky appereance of His Majesty Kinf Octo (in form of keychain plushies), can you spot Him?

Have a Nice Pink Roller-Skate Everyone!

Tansy Beetle

The “Tansy Beetle” is the endangered species for this week #AnimalAlphabets. It is a green iridescent bug who loves the yellow tansy flowers!

I decided to go for a comic style, and imagined a rockabilly tansy beetle who go gets his girlfriend for a drive-in cinema nigth!

He gets her with his beautiful blue ford thunderbird! And obviously gives her a bouquet of yellow  tansies!

I used a solid color base a black outlines, a little shading with the spray tool and I gave textures on the house with materials that are default in CSP. The shadows on the ground are done with the spray tool set on “tone scraping”.

So what are you waiting for? Go get your ride and have a nice night at Bugs Drive-In!

As You Wish

“Buttercup” a vivid shade of yellow is the main color for this week #colour_collective on twitter.

But Buttercup is also a beautiful princess, deeply in love with Westley! Yes the Pricess Bride, my absolute favorite movie of all time!

So here it come my top couple of all the couples in the love history: Pirate Roberts and Princess Buttercup!

This time I’ve gone for  a complete new tecnique. I used a chalk brush (which I downloaded from the CSP Asset, but I can’t remember the name) for the whole picture to gain a colored-pencil/hand drawn effect.
The two beautiful lovers are obviously surrounded by very stilized buttercup flowers.

The chalk brush is the only tool I used here, even for the writing.

If you haven’t seen the movie I absolute reccomend seeing it, totally worth it. I am a huge fan of this movie, I also read the book by william goldman (who also did the screenplay for the movie). Go see it! Or read the book! Hurry! They’re beautiful!!!

Have a love As You Wish it will Be Everyone!

Snow Leopard

“S is for Snow Leopard” is the endangered animal for this round on #AnimalAlphabets.

I decided to go for a winter, cold, snowy theme. So here it is my snow leopard with his fellow friend Snowman, bonding in a winter wonderland!

A red cardinal looks at them and maybe start to sing. Meanwhile the snow is slowly falling down.

I used an established style here. G-pen black  inking,  flat color base, shadow done with the spray tool on a “multiply layer” and tone scraping for the snow-dust!

Have a Fresh Monday Everyone!
