Spyro the Dragon - Marker collage
I was working on this a while back, just because I love the purple Spectrum Noir markerset I have and of course Spyro the Dragon is always fun to play. I made the three Spyro dragons seperatly as well as the gems and the green dragon statue.
Aquaman Popke
I saw the movie about a week ago and fell in love with it. Great storyline, characters, action, CGI and they made Aquaman coowl! I mean, if you look at the original costume for Aquaman it's not that great, but I think with Mr. Mamoa they made it pretty epic. He even has blond highlights to match the original character. I made a Popke of Aquaman and I am thinking about making Mera as well. She was beautiful with her green outfit and red hair, which reminded me of Disney's Ariel.

So if you would like to see more Aquaman Popke photos be sure to check out my Facebookpage:… I also post pictures of work-in-progress stages of almost every Popke I make.
Chun Li - Street Fighter - Markers
Aha yes, my alltime favourite fighting game heroin Chun Li! I made a lineart drawing of her a few days ago and decided to use the markers again to give her some of her classic colours. I know blue is her classic outfit but as a child I always chose the red / pinkish one since I liked it more. But since her dress came in all kinds of colours I didn't really have any favourites after that. I might make some more marker drawings of Chun Li. But for now I am satisfied with the endresult, though I am still mastering the art of markers. Its a lot of fun to make the colours blend, but its not an easy task.
Dr Neo Cortex
After creating Crash Bandicoot, Uka Uka Mask and Dr Nitrus Brio with the markers I decided to make Dr. Neo Cortex as well. Just because I am having so much fun with working with markers. I recently discovered Spectrum Noir markers and they are easy to use in combination with the cheap Twin Markers I already have. Who knows I might even try Copic Markers one day, but for now I am still mastering the arts of markers.

View Dr Nitrus Brio here:…
Crash Bandicoot here:…

I am still learning how to use the markers properly, it's a fun technique to master. :dance: Also trying to figure out what's the best setting for the scanner and adjusting some settings with Adobe Photoshop.

Dr Nitrus Brio
I am getting the hang of it ;) And by that I mean how to use the alcholbased markers. I first started with the cheaper brand of Twin Markers, to learn how to use them. And I recently bought a new brand, Spectrum Noir. I am quite satisfied with them, they blend a little easier and the effect is a bit better. I haven't tried Copic Markers yet, they seem to be the most expensive brand for now.

The original image I used as a reference for this drawing can be found here:… I will not take credit for it, as I have only used to create my version with it.

And of course I have always found Dr. Nitrus Brio a very interesting, freaky character in Crash Bandicoot.


Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
Hello, I'm Jeltje, I practice many different styles of art, which makes it hard to say which is my favourite. I'm a graphic (media) designer and so apart from artisan crafts I like to make digital art too. In daily life I am Historyteacher and therefore I combine my Creative arts with my knowledge about History.

I am a member of many different groups and I'm here on DeviantArt for 11 years now. I come here to show art, see art, learn art and don't plan on leaving any day soon!
Hello everybody!

I know it has been a long time for me to post anything but every now and then I come to check DA out and reply to my messages, or post something new.

Well I have recently started making Game of Thrones mats for a nice cup of coffee or tea. I will make more of them but haven't decided which house shall be next.

House Baratheon - mat by LadyRafira House Targaryen - mat by LadyRafira House Lannister by LadyRafira House Stark - Mat by LadyRafira House Ayrren - mat by LadyRafira House Tyrell - mat by LadyRafira

Apart from that I have also started making Popkes again. I am currently working on Tidus of Final Fantasy X and I am showing more of the progess on my Popkes & Co facebookpage. look for PopkesvanJeltje and you will find me ;) 

So I will be posting more stuff :)
