I see myself as an artist with a passion to create interesting characters, animals and all other imaginative things. At the moment I am trying to put all my efforts to get my personal project Verse come to fruition. Every now and then I will create fan art for the anime series I am watching just to freshen up my mind from my personal project.
Interests

Would like to see more of project Verse characters and paintings or fan art for some anime series?

Your Title - version 2.0

sub-title


I am not a fan of writing journals as this is something that doesn't come natural from me. However I want to share few thoughts here and there to you.

It has been a long journey but finally I have found the art style that suits me. I searched it around 2 years, trying different styles and ways to draw and paint. It was always so painful to see other artists work and feel like you have so much road to travel before you are able to deliver that kind of quality.

That was also the stepping stone for me, I was always comparing myself to the greats as I know I should do to get better but in the same time you have to be forgiving to yourself and realize that you are on a path to become good or perhaps great at some point. That point however is not here yet.

However finding my own style and voice in art I can start to develop that style and become good at it rather than just trying to be as good as others (in some other style e.g. artgerm) and always failing when the end result is something else than I expect from myself.

So here for the new year, be yourself, find your style and develop your own artistic voice.

Br,
Hippo

Carmine the Vampire by doubleHippo
Carmine the Vampire
Not the first painting of 2015 but first published painting nevertheless. Carmine the Vampire was hugely inspired from Vampire Hunter D - Bloodlust's Carmilla. While on the subject I have to admit that the art direction and specially the art style in that movie is just awesome. So here is my take on the vampire subject. This character might be used in the project Verse I am constantly working on. I am not sure yet should I include vampires to the story?

I made two versions of her and although I like both, the white(ish) version is possibly slightly more to my taste. (Find the other version from the sites mentioned below)

Reindeer Softie by doubleHippo
Reindeer Softie
Yet again another re-draw painting. The original painting was made this March. This was intended to be ready by Christmas Eve but the needed time just wasn't there. So here it is a bit late but still completed in December. This was a bit rushed maybe but then again this wasn't meant to be anything too special just something quick and fun. Year 2015 will be a bit different and full of surprises as well. Pa..?

OC: Candy-Li by doubleHippo
OC: Candy-Li
So this one turned out to be rather different than I initially thought. Candy like colors and everything. I got my inspiration from the announcement of Street Fighter V. I had drawn this character earlier this year (and it was way different than this one) and decided to draw the image again. Chun-Li was my inspiration back then and I think it shows through ;) I also tried new coloring techniques and I think it paid off.

I'm not sure whether to use this character in my project or not, maybe she will be part of project Verse© someday.
