Stargazer

“Cordovan”, a reddish-brown is the theme color for this week #colour_collective.

It is the colour of a famous type of shoe leather, but I decided to use it for some mushrooms.

Rainbow Elves love to stargaze on clear nights, and which best place than the top of a shroom?

I used a solid color base,  black outlines and shadow made on layer set on “multiply” and spray tool set on shadow, tone scraping and droplet to give different textures.

The little glow on the outlines of the elf, animals/insects, stars and shrooms is done with a layer set on “soft light” and the spray tool set on “soft” with a yellow color (the moon’s yellow).

With the a starring appearance of the Frog Prince , and furry maple moth. Do you know maple moths? NO? Well they are pink and yellow furry moths, vivid pink. Awesomest moths ever! You simply can’t beat a vivid pink moth. No game for the other moths! XD

The mega Eclipse is coming in Usa, will the Rainbow Elves enjoy it? Who knows! They love everything star-moon-sky-gazing!

Have a Starry Sky everyone!

Red Panda

The “Red Panda” is the chosen animal for this week #AnimalAlphabets.

It is so cute that I decided to multiply its cuteness three times and draw not one, not two, but three cute red pandas!

Not so much going on for the tecnique, solid colors, no shades. I just decided to go for an autumnal look,  due to the panda reddish fur, using colors that looked nice with it, so a little autumnal, and coloring the moths with a  complementary purple color.

The little moths are attracted by the lighted lamps dangling from the vines.

Happy Summer Holidays Everyone!

Frog Prince

Once Upon a Time,

in a magical land of fairies and wizards a Prince was having the time of his life.

He was young and beautiful and nice and stylish and every girl wanted to date him.

But an evil wizard, in love with a girl that refused him for the love of the prince, transformed the prince in a frog.

Still he was a young and beautiful and nice and very stylish frog . Every girl frog in the pond loved him.

You can trick magic, but your true self always shows!

So be you prince or frog, or evil wizard, you , my dear reader, will now know how I did the picture below. Yes, magic has always a price. And you are going to pay for it!

Hahah, just kidding.

This week theme for #colour_collective was “Vert Réséda”, a vibrant shade of green.

I used it for the pond and the rest is story, or better, the rest is tale! hahah..hum. Well what was I saying? Right, the drawing! This time I used a base of solid colors and shaded them with the spray tool set on “shadow” on a layer set on “multiply”.

The pond’s bottom is done with the spray set on “running color spray” and “tone scraping”. I also used “tone scraping” for the rain drops on the stones in the back.

The rain in the background is done with a material (default with CSP) called “rain 02”.

Have a Magic Week-End Everyone!

Quoll

The Quoll is the endangered animal for this round on #AnimalAlphabets.

This time I’ve decided to go for a simple drawing, due to the infernal weather in my country which makes being near a Pc like bathing in hot lava.

So I decided to depict my Quoll on a star, with watercolors and very few details.

As always the glow effect is done with a layer set on “add glow”. The mosaic effect in the stars is done with a material called “stained glass” (default with Clio Studio Paint).

Have a fresh Monday Everyone! (at least for the lucky ones who can)

Starbound

“Pearl” a light shade of beige is the theme color for this week #colour_collective.

I used id on the upper wing of a very special kind of peacock, the one who can generate stars from his gorgeous tail.

The Starbound peacock is bond to the galaxy to which he gives precious gifts!

Old good tecnique here solid colors, no shade, colored outlines. The glow effect is done with a layer set on add glow and the soft spray tool.

Have a Starry Night Everyone!

Proboscis Monkey

“P is for Proboscis Monkey” is the endangered species for this week #AnimalAlphabets.

This is a very unusual kind of monkey with a very important nose!

So it deserved the right frame to enhance it! 😀

I did a little zentangling (is it even a word?) around it using the symmetrical ruler and vectors and colored the monkey with watercolors.

Happy Monkey Monday Everyone!

Anne with an E

Portland Orange an ultra vivid shade of orange is the main color theme for this week colour_collective on twitter.

One of the best show on netflix this season was for me “Anne with an E” so I decided to depict the actress as she is on the playbill.

This thime I opted for a new kind of colouring, the digital oil paint. I used the defualt CSP brush called oil paint. The line-art is done free-hand with the G-pen and than clipped to a dark reddish brownish color.

By the way I am also a huge fan of the “Anne of Green Gables” books series by Lucy Maud Montgomery, so if you didn’t already read it, go for it! Totally worth the reading! You can find all the books legally and for free on project gutenberg .

Have an Happy reading!

Orangutan

“O is for Orangutan” is the endangered animal for this week #AnimalAlphabets on twitter.

Orangutans are the most intelligent apes on Earth, and according to wikipedia, they are capable of interaction on different levels, some orangutans in captivity use touch screen to play videogames! Would they like to play Donkey Kong?! 🙂

Jokes Apart, here my watercolors Orangutan, surrounded by all the Borneo’s best specialties! Yes, I investigated and found that jackfruits, durango, ranbutan and palm fruits are Orango favorite food! So I depicted the jackfruit (the reddish ones), durango (the yellow ones), and ranbutan’s flowers (the pink spiky ones)  all around her (yes she is a lady orangutan), plus the palm’s fruit (the branch with orange little fruits)!

The butterflies are a typical one from Borneo, the dots were supposed to be all black, but it resulted too harsh on the illustration, so i decided to live them white.

There are also two jackfruits (the actual fruits) can you spot them?

The brush I used is the same watercolor brush from my 2 previous posts, you can find there more info.

Happy Monday Everyone!

Sea

“Pantone 292 C” a shade of blue is the main color for this week #colour_collective on twitter.

It was screaming “Sea” to me. So here it is a very Summery Oceanish Illustration to cheer your week-end and make you feel like swimming, and sunbathing and having fun!

Like in my last illustration I decided to use a watercolor brush, the experimentation is so much fun! I used the same brush, the one called エッジ (google translates it as “border”).

I also detailed the lighthouse and the little beach with a marker-pen-brush called “Muted and Even Pen”. Unfortunately I can’t remember if this is default with CSP or if I downloaded it on CSP Asset. Probably the second one. I used it to ink-shade the windows on the lighthouse (with black strokes) and the dotting on the left. I also used it to dot and shade a little  the beach on the left. I left the outlines black.

Happy Summer Everyone!

Numbat

The Numbat is the chosen animal for this week #AnimalAlphabets on twitter.

It is an australian animal who eat ants and resembles a striped squirrel.

I decided to go for a different coloring style this time, using a watercolor brush for the numbat and all the flourishing around it. I used one of the many watercolor brushes that you can download for free from the Clip Studio Paint Asset, this one was called エッジ (google translates it as “border”). I can’t remember exactly from which package this is from, but on CSPA there are so many brushes that you just only have to choose one and are good to go.

I colored the flourishing outlines with a gradient done with the browns used on the numbat.
Can you spot the little afraid ant?

Happy Monday Everyone!
