“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” – 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!

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 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!

Downloadable “Poppies”

This week I uploaded my poppy illustration to my Etsy store. If you like these delicate flowers, you can download them there almost entirely for free. Two different backgrounds are included – white and turquoise – and the images do have high resolution.

I quite like illustrating flowers. I think I should do so more often in the future.

Well, that’s all for now. I’ll see you in the next post! Cheers!

Golden Butterfly

Here’s one of my latest illustrations – Golden Butterfly – painted digitally in a realistic watercolour style. I enjoyed creating this piece, and I like the fiery colours of the wings. I think they turned out quite well. (As you may have guessed, this is the illustration featured in the Golden Butterflies pattern.)

… Oh, and by the way: Did you know that you can now purchase a high-resolution digital version of this illustration? It barely costs anything and can be downloaded right away. You can find it on my Etsy shop.

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