Small studies of trees and skies.
I painted this after being inspired by Ivan Bilibin’s illustrations in a book of Russian fairy tales some of my friends bought me as a birthday present last year; I haven’t actually read all of the stories yet but I just really love the pictures, and wanted to try out a similar style as a bit of fun.
I also used my sparkly metallic paints again and had to take some extra photos with my phone as my scanner isn’t very good at capturing the shiny effect.
I bought a book about wolves recently from a charity shop and it made me want to draw some.
I’m in the final stages of my university animation project and haven’t really had time to draw much of anything else lately, but here’s a roe deer I painted in my sketchbook this morning.
Starting a new sketchbook after submitting my previous one for marking. Grizzly bears are good fun to draw.
