Comic 2 — Sounds of Summer

By in color, comics, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

This one took considerably longer than the first one. Then again, I did actually write something, plus there are backgrounds and more figures. Inspired by all the construction noise around here every summer. There will probably be more on this theme.

Street Painting, Sketches, Portraits

By in black and white, color, digital, dinosaurs, men, pen and ink, sketches, watercolour, women

A little of everything here. A watercolour painting up above. Coloured pic of Jean Paul Belmondo from the movie Stavisky below. Sketches, one perhaps not so wisely coloured. I’m interested in what dinosaurs looked like, because I have the lumbering old-style beasts still stuck in my head. This Tyrannosaurus has a few feathers, which surprises […]

Pretty Pict-chas

By in color, digital, men, paintings, sketches, watercolour, women

Here are some digital and watercolour pictures (and blends of both) that I’ve been doing today, and over the weekend. So many things to tell about these, and there are still challenges, and important things to learn. But what’s most important is that I’m feeling comfy with the tools, and having fun. Above is using […]

Tall and Narrow

By in sketches, watercolour, women

This is the exact format I don’t need to work on my new site. Nonetheless, a couple of miscellaneous watercolours I was doodling in my watercolour book. The woman is a Solid Gold Dancer, the height of femininity in the 1980s. This guy was painted because I took out from the library a book of […]

Car, Car C-A-R

By in digital, paintings

Something I used to chant as a little one, for whatever reason. Painted this to go into the background of another picture, but spent so much time on it (learned a lot, however), that I decided to clip it out and blow it up. I seem to be having better luck with inorganic objects than […]

Hiyo! It’s the Orpah Show

By in watercolour

Not sure what to say about this, except it was a bit of work. I described this strip to a twitter friend, now I’ve forgotten her name. Will try to look back and find her.

Dropped Dip Pen

By in ruttan's place, watercolour

This always happens when I drop one of those dip pens. It sticks into the floor like a dagger in an Indiana Jones movie. Bye bye nice nib!

Watercolour Baby and Other Things.

By in men, paintings, sketches, watercolour

Actually painted a portrait of somebody’s baby the other week. Looked nothing like this one, who was just practice for baby paintings. Can’t show the portrait, because it hasn’t been given to the recipient yet. Then there’s this freaky smiling guy, again rendered in good old-fashioned watercolour.

Pile of Paintings

By in men, paintings, sketches, watercolour, women

These are simple, but done with different techniques and programs. Up above is purely digital, drawn and painted in Photoshop. The guy below was drawn in Adobe Illustrator according to a pencil sketch, then coloured in Photoshop. I’m happy with the ink lines I’m able to create, and they’re fast to do, too. This strange […]

Blue Period

By in men, paintings, watercolour, women

Happy New Year’s, all three of you visiting this blog! It’s business as usual at Utopia Moment. I’m still playing with my Wacom Intuos, but I also enjoy the old school tools. These are a pile of faces, in gloomy watercolours. I’m very happy that my local art store has returned to stocking this paper […]
