Book-illustrations

i did this piece a while ago for a friend’s first solo-curated gallery so i think it’s okay to post :O!!! it’s a big one. the theme was “quiet moments” and i wanted to depict the wonder you feel as a child when it comes to exploration and the unknown at one of the quietest times of day (5 am)

EDIT: Guys, this isnt meant to be a romance piece or anything, I just like these characters ;)

ARGH IT’S FINISHED! 

I  have two screens - one is my laptop and one is a monitor screen. The monitor is what I work on but is calibrated differently to my laptop screen and I have NO idea which one is right. So I apologise if this is too dark or light depending on the screen you see it on… I tried to make it look good on both… 

Mor and Azriel :) Mor’s dress was so fun to paint <3 And no I do not ‘ship’ these two, it was just in my head so decided to paint it :) 

Merch will be available soon!

Commission for a little canadian fabric shop. The whole composition is based on the original tales. This work really exausted me, the worst part was balance colors and composition, but at least i’m satisfied. Some zoom on the single character may help you see better all the details :)

He may be a pilfering pest, but Newt still loves the Niffler!

IT’S FINISHED!! 

Cassian chasing down the commander <3 

I wanted to spend some more time on the background but I literally have no time left as I have lots of other work to do - may come back to it at a later date …

I have two monitors that I work on - my laptop screen and then a much bigger screen to the side which is where I do all of my painting and both seem to be calibrated differently! I think my big screen is correct but apologies if you are looking at this on a phone or a laptop and the contrast seems a little off. 

Prints up on Etsy! Bookmarks soon to follow :) https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/521858902/cassian?ref=shop_home_active_1
