Illustration: Godiva heiße Schokolade mit Fuß


Bought myself a decent-sized sketchbook and here is a page from it:

The size of the sketchbook -- super handy.

And a closer look.

I think I found what I love to do best -- product illustrations.

One's overall mood greatly affects the quality of the work. There are days when I'm feeling forced to draw for the sake of practice and those always come out bad. Feeling forced or rushed to finish a work never works --in my case at least. I need to be calm, collected, focused.... and then there are those days when I have so much inspiration in me I feel like I can draw anything. But that doesn't happen often. :D


If you like what you see, please follow and like! - that'd make my day!

P.S. I am thinking about starting a youtube channel soon, to post videos of my drawing process with. :D Updates will be sporadic but I'm thinking it might be a good idea. Or do I have one too many accounts to keep up with now? XD

Working with markers for the first time

Just as I promised, making it up and posting some stuff from earlier this year.

In February, (amidst the moving-not-moving phase), we came across my sister's old univ stuff and found a bag full of Kuretake Markers. Coincidentally, I wanted to buy Copic Markers but found them too expensive... some 11,990 for a set that comes in a case. Kuretake Markers are not cheap either. But considering my sister had to use them in Design school before (and swears she doesn't want those damned markers anymore), I am very lucky.

In the long run I might want to buy a few extra colours, but for now I will make do with the ones I already have.


Trying my hand at markers and this is the first one I drew:

A Jaegermeister bottle! :D -- also my first liquor bottle illustration.
It is not perfect. I'm only just learning after all. The lines are crooked too.
Made this in under 10mins, but I know I need to practice.
(Recently I discovered the world of illusive 3d-art. Mixed media but I'd love to give it a go. Would take me hours but it's worth a try.XD)

Next up is a classic Guinness advert:

Amazing this stuff works even after being used and left in storage for some 10years..:D
