Cherry blossom hair and red lips

I miss painting “editorial style” illustrations once in a while, as I am working on a new, more narrative portfolio. So I decided to procrastinate a little bit yesterday.

Originally I posted this on Instagram as well, but took it down again. Instagram is an extension of my portfolio and I felt that this little painting does not fit the direction I am going. In the future these kind of illustrations and sketches will be shared here on my journal.

Illustrating emotions

In February I shared some of the illustrations with you, which I have been doing to improve the facial expressions of the characters I draw. This month I am going deeper into this topic and am working on illustrating emotions. Especially between two or more people. I started with some mother daughter paintings and might extend this exercise to pets and their owners.
