doubleHippo's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
I see myself as an artist with a passion to create interesting characters, creatures 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.


So I decided that deviantart is not anymore the place for me to post new art and thus I have opened a Tumblr account for myself. There are many reasons for this but I guess the main reason is that deviantart feels somehow outdated and maybe it is also too big for people to find your art to enjoy. These are my thoughts on the situation and more importantly here is the link to my tumblr account:

See you there!

Naruto Demon Hinata - Atgerm Base by doubleHippo
Naruto Demon Hinata - Atgerm Base
I always like to create color variations and so "Demon" Hinata was born. It is always interesting to notice how the character changes when different colors are applied.

lineart and base:


Hopefully you like it and hope to see you again ;D

So I haven't done this sort of thing before but have kind of wanted to. And as just posted a base for coloring I decided to jump right in. First I thought of it as just fun but soon I started to learn from it by coloring the image. I kind of realized I have to (somehow) create more life to my lineart and make it more varied. I haven't yet thought out how to do it but hopefully I figure out that soon. Other thing is that I have to draw more dynamic poses (This will be a challenge) and possibly start from bust images and leave the legs alone.

The base:

All in all this was 50:50 between fun and educational.

Hopefully you like it and hope to see you again ;D
OC: Nights by doubleHippo
OC: Nights
In this piece I wanted to draw insane looking and flowing hair. Haven't been drawing flowy hair in a long time and so it was a good time to do just that. I also wanted to make a monochromatic color scheme and see how well the shadows support such approach. I am happy with the result and also happy for the fact that I can create flowy hair which is inconsistent yet it looks consistent. Hard to explain what I mean here but hopefully you get it.

My original character Nights© which will hopefully be part of project Verse© which I am constantly working on my spare time.

Until next time!

Not much to say about this one. Just wanted to draw a face with a new type of eyes I think that's that.

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.
