Behind the scenes: May Illustrations

Hi, there I´m starting with this post a series that will take you behind the scenes of my creative process.

You will have an insider look at what inspires me, materials and tools that I use (eek!)

If you follow me on Instagram during the may of May, you may have seen that I chose a magical theme for my illustrations.

May is a very special month, we have both of our daughters born in May. They are the ones brining all the magic and whimsicalness to my life. 

They inspired many of my illustrations, I love to pick their brains and show them what I´m doing.

They are very honest and love telling me what they like or not about my illustrations.

In these illustrations, I combined paper sketches with digital drawing.
For digital illustrations, I´m using the app Paper. I have it on my phone and tablet and is very easy to use.

For paper sketching, I use Cason Maker paper and Pigma micron ink pens 03 and 02. I love maker paper because is super smooth and the pens glide so easily.

My  favorites illustrations were

Bear Mermaid


May is known as Mermay, so I got this idea of transforming bear into a Bear-maid. Keep an eye in this space, since I´ll be doing a short video on the process of it.

Hedgi-corn on a wreath (Hedgi-corn: Hedgehog with a Unicorn horn)

In this illustration, the lovely Hedgi is pretending to be a Unicorn in his own way.

Enchanted forest

Of course, if you are pretending to be a Unicron you should be in an Enchanted Forest!

Bottled Magic

This illustration reminds me of fireflies, they are so magical! Rainbows are just as magical and my daughters have the thought of what if clouds are made of candy floss? So it just made sense to bottled them together
