    More drawings, pencil on paper with digital ink on top. References from all over the web, but mostly form shorpy.com

  • The last of Inktober 2018

    Inktober is over. I had way more fun than I expected with these and I have acquired some approximative knowledge of inks and brushes. I will be colouring some of the images… so… expect more :).

  • Saturday Sketches – Inktober 2018

    Week four. Who knows, maybe next year… I can plan ahead and… make an actual graphic novel? Because, it turns out, no matter how little time I have and how much I travel, I can still fit in one ink page.

       Here are all the images from the second week of Inktober. Enjoy!

    And here you have – week three. Am I unreasonably proud of myself? YES I AM.

    …the last of 2017 :)

    And now for something… slightly different, I guess. Aromanian costume Various Romanian costumes, south of the country.

    How do you learn to ink digitally? There must be some secret rules French comic artist pass from one generation to another… Well, anyway, here are my attempts, references from bodiesinmotion.photo, brushes from KyleBrushes (the CleanComics and one of the MangaCircles)

    Balamuc / loc de joacă ș-altele invited me to take part in their sketchbook exhibition – ”În linii mari”, running from the 30th of September to the 5th of November 2017, in Timișoara. Here are some images from my sketchbook (2010-2011 I thiiiink). It includes Prâslea and Youth Without Age preparation drawings, and the never-ending…

  • Visual Playground – Day2

    The second day was Mattias Adolfsson‘s workshop. Photo credits: Cătălin Georgescu He always seemed to me like a person who has waaaay too much fun with this sketchbooks and his pens. It turns out, he’s willing to share his methods – so for the whole day we did a series of short creative exercises. Below…

    More costume study – English (1600), Ottoman(1870), Polish, Greek, Georgian, Macedonian and derivations. Does anyone know where I can find a costume history with some sort of historical map of influences various cultures had on one another?

    Look, I discovered Pascal Sebah! Expect more Ottoman Costumes :D

    … guess what, end-of-the-week drawings are back. This time, some sort of research for some sort of webcomic that might someday happen. Maybe. Based on iranian miniature and costumes. 

  • Scheherazade – Making of

    Here’s a look at the process for the third illustration in the series, and the first one I did – The Young Prince and Princess. I started by listening to the music, reading about the piece and gathering the documentation. You can find most of the references in my folder on the Rijks Museum online…

  • Inktober Week 2

      Here we go, the second week of inktober. References from old photos of Constantinopolis, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Othello, Colin O’Donoghue as Hook, my garden :) and Camillo Balossini.

  • Inktober Week 1

      So, here’s the first week of Inktober 2016! Pentel brush with Ecoline wash, references from Camillo Balossini, Ida Wyman and ”Elizabeth, the golden age” movie.

  • Saturday Sketches

    I’m yet to find a way of integrating this style into illustrations or comics. It looks a lot like mezzotint, and I may be exorcising some demons from way back in my uni days, when I could never get the technique right. The reference was a Camillo Balossini photo.

  • Saturday Sketches

    Today is (mostly) black-and white day! Turns out I didn’t save the photo ref for this one :(, so google images can’t help me with the credit. References from SketchDaily for these two. Reference from Shorpy, my best guess is that it was another Timothy H. O’Sullivan photo? Oh, and an obvious Mike Mignola style-attempt.

        This time around…. watercolour! Not really, but close enough. Brush by Kyle T Webster :).
