Hipster Café WIP

Vector illustration in black and yellow of an old person with a topknot behind the bar of a café pouring oatmilk into a cup. There's an espresso machine with stickers on the left.

Here’s a #WIP from a piece I’m working on. I realised I don’t draw a lot of the things I care deeply about in real life so (except for nature and fantasy ^__^), so this will be all about #hipster #coffee places (paired with #scifi / #astronomy).

The Selkie / Winter Morning

Vector illustration of a young, white child with long, braided hair standing on the edge of a lake in a snowy landscape. In the lake is a mermaid-creature with a seal-tail. The selkie is almost completely underwater only the top of their head is above the surface. There is an eerie glow coming from the bottom of the lake.
The same illustration but it's not snowing.

I really enjoyed #JonKlassen’s #book „The Skull“, so here is a #hommage with a #Scottish twist* ^__^

The #braids almost killed me, I’ve struggled with #drawing braids before and can totally understand when people just draw a bunch of wonky circles (like Klassen does ^__^) but this time I wanted to understand how to do it and it probably took twice as long as all the rest of the illustration. I think the dramatic shadows on them fit the eery glowing light that’s coming from the bottom of the Selkie lake, no idea how I’d do it in „normal“ circumstances …

Not sure about the #snow, I personally love it but I got #feedback on another piece that it makes it the composition very restless, which I totally see.

Snow or no snow, what do you think?

Door to Summer

Sketch in blue on white of a mountain lake with a tiny island in the middle. There's a giant crystal hovering above it and in one of it's sides you can see another landscape with flowers.

Let’s continue with the #winter theme ^ _ ^

I wanted to try #manga style grey-toning and it is a lot of fun (but as I feared it’s a nightmare to export for Web / as a JPG).
