“Sea Slug” A4 Prints

Last Etsy shop update is all about the little nudibranch I painted in digital watercolour a while ago. You’ll find the fine art prints by clicking this link, which will take you to my Etsy store. Enjoy!

Here’s the story behind the artwork:

I didn’t quite know what to paint, so I asked my Instagram followers for suggestions. One of them suggested this strange sea creature, which I’d never heard of before. I was intrigued and went for it. At times I didn’t quite know what I was painting… But I liked the challenge.

I hope you’ll have a nice weekend, and I’ll see you in the next post. Cheers!

Portfolio Update

This month’s portfolio update only contains one illustration: the Skyscrapers. But that doesn’t mean that Mystiq Arts is slowing down! As a matter of fact, there are quite a few exciting projects brewing. Stuff’s going on behind the curtains, so to speak… and I can’t wait to share them with you this September.

I hope you’ve had a great month, everybody! Now let’s look forward to this autumn season.

Cheers!

“Skyscrapers” Illustration

Drawing straight lines while caring for a two-nearly-three months old baby is not what I would call an easy task. I thought this would be an excellent time to try and draw something in a sloppy manner, and I really enjoyed it. I’m quite satisfied with how these skyscrapers turned out, as well: There’s something charming and elegant about them.

“Skyscrapers” โ€“ digital ink illustration.

I’m not making any prints of this piece. However, they can be downloaded almost for free over at the Mystiq Arts Etsy shop. I hope you’ll enjoy!

These tall fellas will be featured in more projects of mine, so stay tuned for more updates. Until next time, take care out there. Cheers!

“Ivy Vine” Pattern

The Mystiq Arts shops on Society6 and Redbubble have been updated with my latest botanical pattern of ivy vines. Which colour combination do you prefer? Me, I’ve fallen in love with the blue vines.

I’ll see you in the next post. Cheers!

Portfolio Update

This month, I’ve added two more artworks to my portfolio: The Fox and The Hamster. I’ve found myself in a bit of an “animal phase” and so I’ve really enjoyed creating content like this. I wonder what the future brings… but I’m pretty sure the next update will include a botanical pattern and hopefully much more. Stay tuned!

I’ll see you in the next post. Cheers!

“The Hamster” Art Prints on Etsy

I just updated my Etsy shop with another product: The Hamster, pencil drawing. I like drawing animals like this. Fur is an interesting topic, quite challenging to draw but at the same time highly rewarding if you manage to place the highlights and shadows right.

As you can see, I’m offering this print in both vertical and horizontal orientation. Quite convenient, if I may say so myself. Which one would you choose?

Cheers!

“Turtle Love” Art Prints Available

Hello, everyone! The Mystiq Arts Etsy shop has been updated with a set of 25 prints of my Turtle Love gouache painting. Being limited edition, they’re up for grabs!

I’m really satisfied with the finish of the prints. I must say, they turned out great.

I’ll see you in the next post. Cheers!

“Turtle Love” Video

Now you can watch my entire 24-hour process of creating the Turtle Love gouache painting on Youtube! I learned a lot while painting this. Above all, I think I generally need to apply thicker layers than I do most of the time. It’ll be interesting to see how my next painting will turn out in comparison to this one. That being said, I am quite happy with how this piece turned out.

I hope you like the painting, as well as watching this video. Thank you so much in advance!

I’ll see you in the next post. Cheers!

The Fox

My latest illustration is called The Fox. It was sketched out and painted in Procreate, in digital pencil and watercolours, and it took me about five hours to complete. I must say I’m very satisfied with how it turned out! I couldn’t choose between these three beautiful background colours, so I chose to feature them all. If you like this piece, you can buy high-quality A4 art prints from my Etsy shop. They look so crisp, vibrant and beautiful.

What do you think of this piece? And which colour variation is your favourite?

Cheers!
