I am a self-taught artist, designer and illustrator from Croatia. My work includes traditional and digital drawing and painting, photo editing, graphic and web design, jewelry design, mask making and other crafts.|
I’ve been professionally working as a web designer for over 9 years. I’m also freelancing as a book illustrator, and have received awards for my illustration work.
I write tutorials and ebooks, teach creative workshops and organize events.
My art & design portfolio
Free Photoshop brushes
A note on my process: the original was first painted in watercolor on 18x24cm 300gsm cold press watercolor paper. Then I took the scan into Photoshop and painted over the original to add more contrast and soften some transitions. I also added textures from my other artworks to the background to give it an icy feel.
I quite like how this turned out, and I will probably complete the entire "seasons" series in the same manner to get the best out of both (traditional and digital) worlds.
Happy holidays, y'all!
Metamorphosis is a recurring theme in my work.
I've been through a lot of growing pains on my own in the past year, especially in regards to starting my own business and shifting things around how I want to live.
Watercolor on 23x30cm watercolor paper
The Fairy Queen appeared for me on day 1 of my "Month of Fairies" challenge.
I wanted to create something simple, but when the Queen came, I had no choice but to try my best to portray her the way I saw her in my mind.
It's probably not an accident that the two trees surround her in a similar way to the two columns on the Tarot card of The High Priestess.
