geez, corny title much.
Anyways, I've been painting here and there. Especially the last 3 days when I'm on a watercolor/Ellie Goulding trip (much like an acid trip, but more fanboy-like) and...yeah. Here they are:
And a random Naruto

Yayy thanks Nina :)

And the newest one I just did :)

Lovely use of colour, Dutch! I am envious of your use of watercolours- they are very hard to use, as you can't control the flow easily. Nice work!
3rd Jun 2011, 12:02 AM
Thank you :) I was previously known (and criticized) for using watercolors the same way as other, less watery media and not making use of its flow. I'm just learning too I guess.
3rd Jun 2011, 12:41 AM
I'm not very familiar with Ellie Goulding though I have seen her pic a couple of times but regardless, I love your work! Do you work in an artistic job? If not, you should ;)
3rd Jun 2011, 01:32 AM
Thank you. I've sold one or two things and done commissions but not as a working artist. But i hope i'll eventually get there, because it's how i'll be making a living. :)

*squeels* I love them. Very pretty!! What kind of paint do you use? Water? I'm guessing oil, right? :)
Ignore my question, I am very inatentive! I just noticed you said watercolour, so nevermind! Silly me. :D
4th Jun 2011, 03:11 AM
Thank you. :)
(And I have never actually tried oil before in my life. Will do that when I have enough money to get all the different colors and turpentine and related mediums)
Another Ellie Goulding painting I just did, based on the music video of her song 'The Writer'

Haha I was wondering around MTS and I stumbled upon your thread and I'm glad I did. I love your use of watercolors and how realistic they look :). I'm not an a fancy schmancy art critic but your art is amazing x).
5th Jun 2011, 09:54 AM
Thank you. :) I'd be slaughtered if you were a fancy schmancy art critic haha
5th Jun 2011, 06:33 PM
I wouldn't go as far as too say that :p these look great! and I especially love your choice of subject matter (I love Ellie Goulding, Under the Sheets *.*) The vibrance you pull out is remarkable! I use watercolour too, and I've always been taught to go against the grain; so I say you're in good keeping. :]
6th Jun 2011, 07:22 PM
I love how brave you are with your colours, makes the pictures look fantastic!
6th Jun 2011, 07:48 PM
Thank you. :)
I am currently creating a 12-page picture book about Ellie Goulding's life up till now (my own re-imagination, and contains deeper meanings than simply a biography of course) as part of a university project. Will get it done by next Tuesday and will definitely show (off to) you guys. ;)
10th Jun 2011, 03:21 AM
A cover I did with watercolors and black pen for my friend's first single (she's starting out as a singer) :)

Wow! All of paintings look awesome! Keep 'em coming! :D
13th Jun 2011, 12:23 AM
Here's more. :) This is the picture book I told you guys about. After reading from start to end, you guys can read backwards to the start (follow the panel numbering) and find that the story will still kinda make sense. I hope. :3
15th Jul 2011, 12:18 PM
Wow, just wow!
Lovely use of watercolour.. its like i'm in the picture/scene. It's so moving like <3
The lineart is gorgeous.. everything's so nice and detailed.
I am going to stalk your dA for sure ;)
19th Jul 2011, 02:54 AM
The way you've managed to use water colours is awesome, i've had little next to no luck with water colours, I don't like how easy they are to mess around with :P and so I think these are amazing!
19th Jul 2011, 03:36 AM
Thanks guys. :)
Also, was gonna post these a while ago but always forgot. First one in pencil, the other two are acrylic paintings, all on the theme of identity - self and society.
20th Jul 2011, 11:12 PM
OMG, I adore your art! I'm gonna buy a print as soon as I get any money in my hands...
Lovin it! :)
21st Jul 2011, 11:41 AM
Oh wow,these are really great,the colours are so vibrant and realistic!
29th Jul 2011, 01:25 AM
Thank you. :)
29th Jul 2011, 01:28 AM
Pardon my double-posting, but I figured it'd be better to post the next images after the page jump. :3
New charcoal and pencil life sketches on really shitty paper. Class exercises. All between 1 and 5 minutes. (There are more but I can't post here as they contain bewbies and things)
!Picture spam alert!
29th Jul 2011, 08:35 AM
Your amazing! Really great :) Iv'e also started painting like on computer paper not very extreme! I need to get professional paint and paper and all that jazz. Anways, I love the use of the water colors. The first painting is my favorite because it shows alot of emotion and details in the face. That just shows how much Talent you have. Keep up the GREAT work. You've got talent! ^^ :) :gjob:
4th Aug 2011, 03:56 AM
Thank you. :)
Here's another sketch from my Life Drawing class:
The Art-Off contest piece:
And finally, the first painting from my new themed watercolor series, titled 'The Back-up Singer'
8th Aug 2011, 02:50 PM

11th Aug 2011, 09:12 AM

Some comics concept art. I intend to create a new comics series and am hoping I can sustain the interest
5th Sep 2011, 03:15 PM
Wow these are truly a work of art. Better than anything I've seen in a long while. You're are sooo talented. It sucks that I can't draw like I used to, or I'd show you my sucky drawings.
7th Sep 2011, 08:48 PM
Beautiful. If I could figure out how to get drawings from my sketchpad to the computer I'd post some of my stuff as well (: I like to mess with watercolor too, but it doesn't turn out nearly as well as yours do. :p
10th Sep 2011, 02:35 AM
Thanks guys. :)

If you were a sim, your painting skill level would be 10.
12th Nov 2011, 05:10 PM
I started listening to Ellie Goulding after I downloaded all your beautiful art for the Sims 3. :)
10th Dec 2011, 03:40 AM
Thanks guys :D
More paintings I recently did
Also I'm making a comic series, titled Comatose. You guys can read it here (http://chicken-blast.deviantart.com/gallery/32899116) :)
18th Dec 2011, 04:31 AM
God your artwork is good. I paint and draw, but I am incredibly jealous of your talent, especially your Ellie Stuff, it's fantastic!
21st Dec 2011, 04:05 PM
Thank you :)
Stuff I recently did:
21st Dec 2011, 06:09 PM
So you're making a comic, eh? It looks pretty awesome from the pictures you've posted here.
I love the very last picture in your newest post. I know it's from Drive the movie, but it somehow reminds me of Some Kind of Wonderful (http://www.leavemethewhite.com/caps/albums/movies/skow/Some_Kind_of_Wonderful_545.jpg). Yeah, I'm a shameless 80s movie fan - what you gonna do about it? :P
Anyway, you're talented is what I was trying to say in as many words as possible - apparently. :|
27th Dec 2011, 04:31 PM
Thanks Giga. There's nothing shameless about being an 80s movie fan, 80s movies are awesome and I'm into retro too. :)

12th Jan 2012, 03:39 AM

11th Feb 2012, 12:13 AM
Seriously, you should put the Ellie paintings that aren't already in the sims up here as another set of Ellie Goulding Paintings.
18th Feb 2012, 11:40 PM
The pencil drawing! :up: :up: :up: :up: :up: Keep up the good work!
