Here's my illustration for this week's theme -voice- which I quite liked. I've been pushing myself to create scenes with backgrounds and some action taking place. Hope you like this illustration of a very talented raccoon singing!

For this illustration I decided I was going to use acrylic paint and coloured pencils. I like the unique textures and bold colours you get working with these materials. The problem with working by hand is that I always have trouble deciding on a colour palette. When working digitally that's not a problem because you can change the colours very easily but with paint the first thing you need to know is the colour palette, so this was a little out of my comfort zone but at the end I think it was worth it. I keep learning with every illustration and I'm quite pleased with the end result.

Here's a tyrannosaurus who loves very much its teddy bear. I've never before taken an interest in dinosaurs, but now I quite like drawing them. It was fun to imagine they could be cute as well as ferocious. What is your take on dinosaurs?

I've been reading a book called "unlikely friendships" about animals from different species that become friends. One of the stories is about a cat and a bear in a German zoo who have been friends for over 10 years. I think that's a very nice story, and it has inspired me to do some illustrations. This is the first in a small series, that I'll be doing over the next few days - or weeks maybe?-. They're called Muschi the cat and Mausschen the bear, in case you want to check their story.
Have a nice weekend!

Here's a happy fox with an exotic hat galloping around. I decided that I need to work more on designing backgrounds for my illustrations. That's waaaay out of my comfort zone, as so far, most of my drawings don't have one, I really hope it gets easier with time. Anyway, hope you're having a nice week. Thanks for stopping by!

I did this ram for my husband's website (it's something about maths, you can see it here) however he liked better other drawing I did a while ago. I think my drawings have improve a lot since I did that one, but he prefers the old one.
Lately I've been seeing lots of illustrations by Lydia Monks and I just love how she mixes pictures of textures into her illustrations, so that's what I did for the ram's jumper.
