An oil painting of mine I have just drawn up again by photoshop for testing my improvements in drawing. Mixed media: oil on cardstock and washi (Japanese paper), and digital. Inspired by my favourite male model Clement Barreda. For a larger view click HERE.

Commission: KeroKero

This is just like an illustration for children, inspired by "Kerokko Demetan" anime's character design. A commission. Pencil sketch and digital colouring. "KeroKero" is the onomatopoeia of the frog in Japanese language and it is assonant to "Caro Caro" (that means "Dear Dear" in English), that is the Italian pronunciation of the inhabitants of Bari city (South Italy). PS: for the background pattern > credits to DeviantArt.

Anthony fanart

Anthony time. Candy Candy. Mixed media on cardstock. In the novel, the variety of rose Anthony creates for Candy is light pink, white in the anime and white with green shades in the manga. So I drew a mix.

Albert double version - CandyCandy

Finally the first drawing (about CandyCandy's all characters' portraits) accomplished!! Albert's double version: long haired-bearded-Albert & short haired-shaved-Albert (just like he looks in the manga when he lives with Candy because he lost his memory). Colored pencils, soft pastels and markers on cardstock.
