Almost a year ago I posted some fishtail braid hair inspiration..
I thought maby I should post something hairy again..
I tried this tutorial tonight..
It's in dutch, but there are a lot of pictures, so even when you don't know dutch you should be able to understand it.
My hair is very thick, so my braid is a lot thicker than the braid in the tutorial and because of that my bun looks a little different.
But I still really like it, it looks classic and still a lot of fun :)
Do you like my version?
My schoolbooks and stuff looked pretty boring, so I decided to make them more fun! :)
Do you watch Sherlock? (The BBC sherlock.. not the movie? it's awesomeeeeee!!)
I really love that show, and the quote is from one of the episodes.
I can't wait for season 3..
Super sorry for my absence!
How was your vacation?
Mine was really nice, I went to Italy and had lots and lots and lots of icecream!
I don't know how they do it.. but some how Italian icecream is so much better then.. well actually everything!
Hope you had a nice summer :)
When I was little one of my favorite movies was The little mermaid.
I have red hair, so when we had to choose Disney princesses I always was Ariel (I actually wanted to be Pocahontas)
I still love mermaids and I'm still making some fairytale illustrations, I think this could be some sort of children book illustration.
The weather was pretty nice yesterday, so I did some outside sketching..
I really didn't ment to but I made a lot of princesses and other fairytale figures..
Sleeping beauty, knights, little red riding hood and so many more..
Maybe I should try to illustrate some fairytales..
What do you think?
This weeks illustration friday topic is fluid.
And I immediately thought of rain..
The weather has been pretty weird lately here (snow-rainy)
But pink umbrella's make everything ok, I think..
And it's the perfect weather for watching movies :)
Do you ever have this problem?
When I have a special event I feel that nothing looks good on me..
Nothing feels right and I get so frustrated that I don't even wanna go anymore.
Sometimes I get so insecure, especially when I want to look my best.
You just need someone sometimes who says: You look ok! Come on let's go!
This weeks subject was Twirl, I made a girl with Twirly hair (is twirly actually a word?!)
It's only a sketch, because I've been very busy this week..
In the Netherlands it's Fashion Week, and there are a lot of fashion shows in Amsterdam.
I'm a writer for a dutch online magazine Air Magazine and went to the shows.
I just love fashion shows, it's a sort of circus with eccentric and hysterical people.
I made my first Photoshop piece!
I never really liked Photoshop, when I do digital work I always work with Illustrator..
I just find it way easier to work with.. but I like the photoshop style more.
I need to practice waaaaay more, but I'm starting to like it :)
which program do you use?
I've been sketching a princess today, while watching a movie.. (yes, a Disney movie ;))
She's a very cheerful young lady and I think she knows very well what she wants!
(and isn't afraid to go get it! :))
What do you think should be her name?
I've been inspired by the sketches that Glen Keane made for Tangled. (I love Rapunzel!)
Actually I've been inspired by the whole Disney animation style...
Above are a few sketches I made, I'm trying to combine the disney-style and my own.
I sketched sooo much (when I actually had homework to make) today, I'll post more sketches tomorrow.
I like experimenting with my style! :)
I've been sketching a lot.. above 2 sketches.
The girl with the bow was a experiment with watercolor paint.
And the girl that get's blown away was my sketch for Illustration Friday.
But I had just no time to finish it.. :(
I have a lot of deadlines this week, so I'm pretty busy and have little time to make things.
So no Illustration Friday this week and last week, but next week I'll be back! :)
Do you know the Drawn to life books?
I got them these week and can't wait to start in them! :)
