Caramel Circus in the Sky

Hi everyone, these days i`ve been at home, well somewhere i moved out from my apartment and stuff, and i was looking through my "LDH" archives and i had a lot of unfinished pieces, but i really don`t feel comfortable with that style anymore, so i decided to change it a bit, add more texture and volume, and details, etc.

And i finally had the chance to use one of the sketches i made this year: http://themustachelady.blogspot.com/2012/01/working-on-new-stuff.html the giraffe one :)

As someone told me my screen caps weren`t enough, i`m going to post a bunch of my digital painting process for this giraffe, but this is just for this style, depending on which line i`m working on, my digital painting process is different.

Here i am tracing the giraffe in Adobe Illustrator:


Basic painting in Photoshop:

Started giving it texture:

Then i used the picture of a giraffe for color reference:


Here is the basic giraffe finished:

Then i made pearl by pearl because i wanted the order uneven:

And this is a (cool XD) sketch of the position and details i wanted for the doll, i already had her very clear in  my mind i just needed a size and position reference:

Working on the face:

Finished doll:

Working on the scenario:

Then i felt that i needed to add that flag somewhere because i have made it already:

Finished piece:
Caramel circus in the sky
I kind of like it, it`s very high res in every detail but the quality here looks a bit off :s but click the picture and watch it in full size in Flickr
Hope you like it :)

Hello everybody, i participated in an illustrated book based on Lolita Fashion with one of my pieces from the "Afterlife" line, here it is:

I hadn`t posted it before because the book was still in process, but now it is finished and you can find it here:


My page, and you can also find a little picture of me and info in the credits section:


And mmm yeah...purchase it if you want to, and i`ve been working on several new pieces from the LDH line, i guess these are like "LDH 3.0" i`ve changed some things but they still look lovely :)

Don`t know when i`ll be posting again, i`m moving (again) to a different place and i`m not sure if i`ll have internet connection there.
