Just a quick post to let you know I’m working on the illustrations for the Illustration/Comic themed Show at Vinca Minor Gallery in Sweden. I have been invited to join this exhibition featuring other talented female illustrators in collaboration with the Small Press Expo in Stockholm. I’m very excited about the whole thing and I’m painting 5 new illustrations plus a couple of comic pages from my latest project “The Cloud Maiden”, please visit this page for more info and previews! Opening will be on April 25th!
Yeah, a new illustration! I’m quite prolific recently, and there’re so many images I can’t show you yet!
This is an illustration I painted for a fantasy magazine that will feature my art in its next issue. I will give you more info asap! Honestly, the composition in this image is not very original, I took inspiration from a couple of my old illustrations: link and link ^____^ But well, I like the colors in it even though my scanner obviously made a mess with anything! The original is less gloomy and more ‘orange’ shaded ^_^
I also posted some wip on my flickr gallery!
Finally, I completed my ‘Little Mermaid’ illustration! Hurrah!!!
I should thank Isabelle for commissioning me this piece and for being so patient with me ^___^ She actually contacted me about this commission almost 2 years ago! I can’t believe she could wait for so long until I was able to finally start doing it! Thank you!
And, I’m re-arranging my gallery at Flickr. I will delete a lot of stuff to focus the page more on my art than …. something else! So, don’t get worried if you don’t find old pictures/photos. I probably deleted them!
Ok, following my schedule, I had to finish two commissioned pieces in this weekend but it seems I could only complete this one:
It’s a painting based on a very old image of mine, having the same title and almost the same theme and colors. And a fairy based painting after some time! I also posted some WIP of it on my flickr gallery, just for the curious people!
I like this one a lot, it’s a pity I should give it away ^_^
A small preview of a series of three commissioned illustrations done in the past days:
And the final sketch for a Little Mermaid and the Prince commission. I did it nth times but I really want it comes out perfect, at least this is my intention! ‘Little Mermaid’ is my favourite fairy-tale from the classic ones. And of course I don’t refer to the meaningless Disney cartoon! You can’t imagine how I hate that movie ^_^
Btw, I think I’m too much perfectionist to work on commissioned pieces! It takes me ages to complete even the simplest sketch!
A small preview of a private commission I’m finishing in these days. I had to stop with this, and a couple of other ones, due to that commercial commission I worked on in the past few weeks. I hope I can show and say more about it, soon!
And another paper doll, hand painted by me, that will be soon available for purchase on my Etsy shop.
My ‘Beauty and the Beast’ illustration has recently been included in two different Etsy Treasuries.
Here the first one, selected by mnhince (expired few days ago)
The second one is still online. Thank you, Christine.
