Wine Party

“Byzantium Purple” is the color for this week #colour_collective. It is a shade of purple.

It reminded me of the wine color. So I decided to host a party for my three little rodent fellas with a special kind of wine: the Fizz Wine! Never heard of it? It’s a wine that fizz and bubble, so you don’t get bored while you booze it up!

Jokes apart, that’s always time for a party, so let’s get started!

I used a solid color base, a layer set on multiply for the shadow (obtained with the spray tool) and partially colored outlines. The glow on the candle is done with a layer set on “add glow” clipped to the background (with the spray tool with a yellow  color).

The bottle’s label is done with the material called elevation (on the “effect and feeling” category of CSP).

Happy Fizzy Booze Everyone!



Military Macaw

Hello Fellow Followers!

It’s #AnimalAlphabets time! This time the endangered animal is a very colorful parrot, the Military Macaw.

I used a flat color base, cell shading on the macaw and colored outlines for the plants.

Happy Monday Everyone!


Coffee Time

It’s that time of the week! It’s #colour_collective time! This round the chosen colour is “Khaki” a shade of brown/green. The tone chosen was more brownish than green and reminded me of mocha coffee. So I decided to use it for a coffe time!

But what’s better than a mocha coffee than a mocha cat?

So here it is my lil mocha kitten taking it’s time before eating all the donuts and pastries at his disposal!

Mocha kittens due their fur color to the intensive use of mocha coffee. It’s something well known right? 🙂

I did a bit of shadowing this time, using the spray tool set on “shadow”. For the remaining part, flat colors and coloured outline as always!

Enjoy your coffee Everyone!



“L is for Loris” is the endangered animal for this week #AnimalAlphabets.

The Loris is a nocturnal primate, with huge kind eyes. It is described as a shy animal, so that “In Indonesia, slow lorises are called malu malu or “shy one” because they freeze and cover their face when spotted.”(from wikipedia) How cute is that?

Unfortunately this animal is endangered due to exotic pet trade.

I decided to depict the loris on a moon, due to his nocturnal nature, a special moon which also is a forest, as the loris habitat. The loris is a little sad because he wants to stay in his natural environment and not to be a human pet exposed to daylight and in a cage.

I used solid colors on the loris, colored outlines and no shades. The moon color is done using a gradient from yellow to brown, so that moon-forest was a little golden-brown on the forest part. I did a zentangle all over the moon to add a tattoo effect. The glowing effect is done clipping a layer set on “add glow” to the background a using the spray tool with a yellow color. I also colored the moon and stars outline with a lighter yellow to enhance the glow effect.

Happy Moon Dreaming Everyone!



“Fiery Coral”, a shade of red,  is today’s color for this week #colour_collective.

This week was scorching hot in my city, so I took a drawing I did a while ago and used fiery coral to color some details. So here it is my little vampire, smiling at you, because he is a good guy , a friendly neighborhood vampire.

Flat colors, colored outlines and a an hatching brush to details the hair (it is in effects in CSP).

Happy Vampy Week- End Everyone!




“K is for Kakapo” is the endangered animal for this week #AnimalAlphabets .

The kakapo is a New Zealand special parrot, the only one parrot who couldn’t fly and because of this has super fluffy feathers.

It’s name means “parrot-owl” because of the feathers on his face that make it looks a little like an owl.

According to a non-verified voice of wikipedia it smells like flowers and honey. I don’t know if it is true, but that makes this parrot a pro! I hope that it will survive and prosper. This world needs flower-honey-scented creatures!

I decided to create a picture with the kakapo surrounded by some of his habitat ‘s flora and fauna. So I added ferns and berries like the ones I saw in a picture of a kakapo. I than added fuchsias, because I’ve seen that they are a New Zealand flower. I also added little moons all over the drawing because kakapo is also a night bird. For the fauna I found that one of the native New Zealand butterflies is the Yellow Admiral, I depicted my butterflies like them, but than I decided to change the colors to fit better in the picture (the admiral has orange and black wings, but I found that black resulted too strong compared to the surrounding colors). So think of my butterflies like a fantasy admiral version.

Again I used solid colors and colored outlines

Have a Fluffy Monday Everyon!


To Darken Feathers

It’s #colour_collective time! This time the the chosen color is “licorice”, a veryn dark shade of brown (almost black).

Did you know that nothing is better than licorice to darken your fluffy feathers? No? Well now you know! As the crows in my illustration already knew.

So here they are eating licorice to have the most beautiful shade of black !

Guess what? Flat colors, colored outline, gradient for the background! Yes same old same old!

Sweet Eating Everyone!



Javan Rhino

The Javan Rhino is this week endangered animal for #AnimalAlphabets.

This particular type of rhino is in serious risk of extinction due to loss of habitat and poachers.

It is a very particular animal with a skin that looks like an armor. I decided to depict the animal with some of the javan flora and fauna drawn as a sort of pattern. I included mongroves , mongrove’s flowers, palms and and a very stylized type of javan dragonfly that has red wings with transparent tips.

I’ve done a little shading on the rhino and than used all flat color, with no shades for the other elements.

Happy Week Everyone!


Ceylon Dragon

“Ceylon Yellow” is the color for today’s #colour_collective on twitter. It is a dark shade of yellow.

I taught that this shade was perfect for the harry potter’s gryffindor theme, a little too dark maybe, but still gryffindorish!

So here it is my Ceylon Dragon, and avid reader, tea drinker and toys collector. Can you spot the beautiful King Octo plush?

This time I used a very tiny color-palette, repeating the same colors here and there to obtain an organic result.

So happy reading and tea-drinking you Gryffindor fellas, see ya soon!


Indian Elephant

“I is for Indian Elephant” is the animal theme for this week #AnimalAlphabets.

So here it is my very indian-style elephant. I really liked doing it because it took me back to when I drew mostly mandala and zentangle ( to see them you can take a  look at my instagram  and search for the older picture.)

My old basic style here. Nothing to declare. Hope you Enjoy it!
