Valentines day

Falling in Love

I meant to have this illustration done for Valentine’s day, but two years in a row my Valentine’s concept came to me on Valentines day. The main inspiration for this piece came from the 1934 film “It Happened One Night” by one of my all time favorite directors Frank Capra. The movie is one of my family’s favorites. I really wanted to capture that moment when a person realizes that they are falling in love. I had a really clear picture in my head of what I was going for. It ended up taking me 4-6 redraws till I felt like I captured that feeling. I’m really happy with how it turned out.

Also I’m creating a limited edition fine art prints of this piece. There will only be 15 prints of this ever made. The Print size is 17 inches by 17 inches and the image size is 15 inches by 15 inches. Every print I will hand embellish. I’m Selling them for $120 with free shipping. Leave a comment if you are interested. I posted a picture of the print below. Let me know what you think :) I love hearing from you.

When I saw that Christian Dior‘s Spring 2019 Couture collection was circus themed I couldn’t pass up drawing it. The drawing is Pencil and Pastel, and colored digitally. The inspiration came from vintage circus posters. I hope you enjoy the illustration.

The print is $250 with free shipping. I’m giving all patrons a 10% discount so the print would be $225 for you. :) Message me to reserve your print.

It took me a few days to drawing and film this timelapse video. So I had to speed the video up 7000 times faster. If only I could draw that fast…. The drawing is of model Katiusha Feofanova’s Vogue Cover. This Video was released early last month on monthly Patreon. Also I’m giving the original artwork from these videos away to one of my patrons(the Scholar tier).

Julia Hafstrom – Sleeping Beauty

Coming from an illustration/contour drawing background, I’ve been working on improving more loose shape based drawing and painting. This sketch of Julia Hafstrom is inspired by John Singer Sargent. I used green construction paper and color pencils and lightly scribbled in Julia’s form. I tried to focus on it feeling right, instead of worrying about it being accurate.

P.S. Just a reminder, a few days left till the end of the month. If you want to be eligible for this months’ rewards on Patreon sign up now ;)

Japanese model Maihee portrait by Artist Danny Roberts

Portrait

Maihee (まいへえ)

I have been playing around with getting richer colors in my drawings. This portrait is mainly color pencil and then i layered in some extra color digitally. I’m really happy with how my portrait of Maihee (まいへえ) turned out. It is definitely one of my favorite portraits that I have done in a while.

I’ll be giving away this drawing at the end of the month as part of the rewards for the Scholar group on Patreon. Make sure to sign up as a Patron for a chance to win it :)
