"protect till forever..." had this idea poping in my head about 2 hours ago while hearing Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole OST somewhere in the background. have a good and caring earth day!
p.s. it's hard to ask someone to care more for earth while one isn't in position to be able to care. just a thought.
This is a small project between two other bigger projects. It looks how it looks and has the colors it has because I wanted it to be that way. I love strong colors and contrasts.
The red fox (Vulpes vulpes) is the largest of the true foxes, as well as being the most geographically spread member of the Carnivora, being distributed across the entire northern hemisphere from the Arctic Circle to North Africa, Central America and Asia. Its range has increased alongside human expansion, having been introduced to Australia, where it is considered harmful to native mammal and bird populations.
Red foxes are social animals, whose groups are led by a mated pair which monopolizes breeding. Subordinates within a group are typically the young of the mated pair, who remain with their parents to assist in caring for new kits.
Pencil sketch took 23 mins and 1h of experimental digital rendering.
I am selling for 10$ a full size .psd of that digital painting. Send to me a note if you are interested to track what layers I've used to color this
In the future I'm planning to do a full video tutorial (traditional media, from sketch to fully coloured character)- I am thinking of a subject what I should draw for demonstration. Any ideas? I thought of a bust-up of Daenerys Targaryen and her dragon...
I love beetles! They come in so many different colour varieties and shapes, and some of them look like little gemstones. They are really fun to paint and if they have a metallic look like this one it's quite a challenge to get the reflections right.
I found this little guy in our garden last summer, it was tiny, only about 8mm long, but it was so shiny and sparkly, as if it was made out of a polished metal... I took a photo of it to paint it at some point, so here it is.
I had no idea what species it was so I called it "Bob" I now found out that it is from the "rosemary beetles" family.... apparently they are a pest, but who decides that anyway?
Took me 5 days, done in acrylic on 300g paper, 40cm x 40cm (16inch x 16inch)
*does anyone of you know the French documentary movie "Microcosmos: Le peuple de l'herbe", it came out 1996? If you are interested in insects, watch it!!! Abolutely stunning pictures
Jasper and Elise on one of the balconies at Elise's obligatory giant Victorian mansion. Once again, I copped out on the background. Oy.
Incidentally, this is a really older sketch, probably two years old. I think it was the first time I drew Elise how I pictured her. I was so excited about that that I think I just figured, "Pfft! Background? Who cares?"
