Well i’m so so so so happy to finally be posting this painting! It took about 2-3 weeks to do. Which is way longer than i thought it would take. I used Pencil, Pen, Color Pencil, Ink, Water Color, and Oil Paint. The clothes in the painting are from Marchesa‘s beautiful Fall 2012 collection.
So the concept for the painting… As you all know, my brother and I have been working on writing a story book. Since the book isn’t done, i can’t really share much from it… I thought i could start doing paintings from the stories and start introducing you to the characters. This painting is of a character named Josette Halirk. She is a Princess. She technically isn’t in the book we are writing right now, cause she is just a little kid when our first book takes place. I used model Mona Johannesson as a face reference. For some reason, i feel like Mona’s look really fits perfectly how i picture Josette. I really hope you like the painting.
Hi everyone! Guess what?! I finally have some drawings for you! My friend Christopher Michael had asked me to participate with a project called What’s Contemporary and at first I wasn’t sure what would be the best thing to do for it, but I eventually decided to design a mini-collection and these are some of the drawings for it. If you want to hear about what inspired this collection, check out the interview I had with What’s Contemporary! I hope you enjoy the drawings and the interview! :)
