King I

Watercolors on 140lb watercolor paper

Part one of the already later 8/8/14 Illustration Friday word “King”

The king is being a dictator D: Hopefully we shall see the other parts soon.

You can watch me paint this! I made a little hair tutorial in the annotations! I also explained how I did the double exposure.

8/15/14 Illustration Friday: Journey

Watercolors, pastels, and ballpoint pen on 140lb watercolor paper

I drew a whimsical piece where a fish and bird swap places and journey into each other’s world. How and why this happened is up to you :)

Watch me paint it on youtube!

If you truly adore it, buy a print on Fine Art America!

If you’d rather wear it, buy a shirt on Redbubble! I recommend the navy blue.

Peace

Watercolors, colored pencils, pastels

"Peace" for the 8/1/14 Illustration Friday

My thinking was fire and ice can make peace as water…

Do you see the conjoined head in the middle?

Golden

Watercolors, pens

This was for Illustration Friday’s word “Golden”

Heart of gold is a compliment but gold is just a cold metal you know…

You can watch me paint it if you click here. I will try to do videos for IFs so look forward to one next Friday!

Repeat

Ballpoint pen, colored pencil

I drew this for Illustration Friday(http://illustrationfriday.com/).It’s a website that gives a weekly topic every Friday. I will try to keep up with this so look forward to drawings at least every Friday! :) This one was a bit late but from now on I will try to post on Friday nights.

This week’s word was Repeat. It made me think of the striped pattern that zebras and tigers have. The stripes themselves repeat and the whole pattern itself repeated on 2 animals in nature!

I thought this would look great as a poster so I’ve made it available as one on Redbubble! You can also buy it on a tote bag!

Niao Ren

Ballpoint pens, gel pens

Niao ren is chinese for birdman and is used as an insult. This drawing is an inversion meaning I used the wrong colors and then inverted them in photoshop to make the colors right.

Wind Drinker

I tried to capture the contradictory essence of the horse here. Powerful yet fleeting. That moment when a horse first meets a stranger, when the nostrils flare and the neck stretches out as the horse decides if the stranger is friend or foe.

White color pencil on black artagain paper. Done in 2 hours.
