This is just a first sketch or trying for my pirates-story. I need to create a watermonster and i think this is still to cliché

still to be made. I have the big lines in my head but they won’t come out in the right order.`

as i said before, this is just a sketch, i am still searching for a great monster and more interaction in his surrounding.

This is just on a simple A3 paper. with a black marker i draw the figure. then i started to put the brown on with coffee that was standing in front of me. The ink of the marker leaked in the drawing but that gave a nice effect. I tippexed the beard. and coloured the octothing.
I scanned it, and remade the hands so they wern’t just leaky inky things. I coloured his body. The water is a texture i found on the internet.

it is a brilliant homepage. i have fallen in love with it. I am proud to be part of it :D

Every kid loves drawing, I just never stopped. 1 day my teacher in highschool told me I could go to an artschool because I was so good in all that artistic stuff. And so I did. I went to the artschool in Genk. It was a whole new world, for the first time I was completely in a world were art and drawing was important. It was so inspirational. Now I am studying at the St-Lucas in Gent for a bachelor. I still have 1 year to go. Than I can start working on my career as an professional illustrator.
