Dior Midnight Poison illustration

Pencil on paper. I saw a beautiful pose of a sweet girl on I decided to do something with it. I usually draw on very white paper, but I tried this old looking paper. The texture is different and gives a different feel to the piece.

Pencil on paper. 21,5 x 42 cm. Because I want to make bigger prints of it I had to draw everything again.
Pencil and Photoshop. 29,7 x 42 cm. I want to make more examples for advertisement. I would love to combine more products with illustration.
 Close-up. Photoshop.

Rough sketch, pink / blue ballpoint and pencil on paper. 
Exhale. Pencil and red pencil on paper. 21 x 29,7 cm.
This is a sketch for a serie paintings I'm going to make. It's going to be a lot of faces and just a little bit of the body, because I want to concentrate on faces first. I've made several sketches with girls and nature, insects and animals.
Exhale. Pencil, red pencil on paper, added colours in Photoshop.  21 x 29,7 cm. 
I drew her naked at first, but it became a pornographic image. Something that I didn't I changed it into leaves.

100 Vogue hands

Colored pencil and colored ballpoint on sketch paper.

I've drawn 100 hands for practise, because I think that hands are the most complicated part of the human body. I think I'm going to draw 100 feet too and make a collection of 100 bodies and 100 heads. Hope that helps.


Together with my little sister I went to Naturalis. It's a National Nature Historical museum with 5.250.000 insects, 1.160.000 fossils, 440.000 stones and minerals, and lots of big and small skelletons  and stuffed animals. A great oppurtunity to expand my reference pictures. The shame crab is very funny, the animals in bottles, the textures of the plants, special stuffed animals.

They will have circus animals since october so I will come back for that.

Painting Mask I

Mask I. Close-up face. Oilpaint on woodpanel.
Still in process, I'm working on this painting in very thin layers. They are dry within one day.

Mask I. Close-up ring. Oilpaint on woodpanel. (in progress)
The woodpanel is sand down first so the surface is very smooth now. I prepared it with Polyvine to make it smoother, but I'm going to try an acrylic medium next time.
Mask I. Close-up bird. Graphite and oilpaint on woodpanel.
Here you can see how the sketch look like without the paint. To get thin lines of paint I paint a stroke with a small pencil and blend it with another dry brush. This is a nice method.
 Mask I. Close-up of the flowerheels. The heels are inspired by Prada. I saw some Prada heels with flowers on the back but from hard material. These look soft and I think it fits my painting because of all the floral details.
Oilpaint and on the left my favorite medium. I use this to make the paint smoother and it makes your paint dry quicker. It's looks like a gel.
