4/52: Vodník

This one was requested by my dear friend Šata :)

Vodník is a slavic water demon. I think he is particularly popular in Czech Republik and Slovakia. We "had" him in Poland but I mainly recall him from imported Czech cartoons (which I loved!). He would also appear in fairytales. He does resemble a frog with his green skin and webbed fingers. Another possible inspiration was catfish. Both animals feature on the image and I must say I am very pleased with the catfish ;

This time I did flat colors in Photoshop. I think so far this type of coloring suits my illustrations best - or does it? Whatcha think?

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day!!!

Unlike last year, I managed to make the pictures BEFORE the Valentines and post them on the day... Who knows, maybe next year I will even do them in advnce enough to make cards? ;)
Colonel Reginald is looking for love. He had a hard life following the war and among other injuries he suffered a broken heart.
Lady Cat has been looking for someone to share her life with ever since her husband sadly passed away. She needs emotional support and someone to help her bring up fifteen children from her first marriage.

3/52 Jackalope

So here's number three! :) A mythical creature and fairly recent one in a sense, as people still believed they are about only few hundred years ago. All because of some grotesque bunny virus. This specimen has antlers much like reindeer.

I have been experimenting a fair bit with the coloring of these and switching between Photoshop and Manga Studio. I dont think I have found a good way to color these linear drawings but hopefully will get there soon.

This also happens to be my 200th post... I'd say time flies but actually it took quite a while to get there. Can I get to 300 this year? Maybe. Who knows ;)

2/52 unicorn

Well, I guess this one is dedicated to Morgan and all the other unicorn lovers! :)

I will color it, but tonight I am feeling too tired to do any more.
