Welcome to my blog!

The DaniLustre artblog where I want to post anything that doesn’t quite belong among the portfolio section, like news updates, studies and daily sketches. Thank you for visiting!


In this week’s post, I wanted to feature my birchtree and the mother and her baby and the process of these artworks;

The initial idea was to do a stylized illustration but with the look and feel of crayons. I like pastel colours and round and simple shapes but they should have a nice texture when you see them up close.
I have a thing for trees and animals and wanted to create something strange but still recognizeable. After looking at some reference, here’s what I came up with.
