schleimi

One of my kids had to draw a monster for her english homework. And because she can, she used my black-ink and watercolor supplies :-)

here is her description of schleimi (which was the second part of her homework):

This is Schleimi. She is a mixture of a slug and a bird. Her body is darkpink. The wings of her are darkblue. She has twenty black spots. My monster can´t fly. She is as fast as a normal slug. And she is taller than a slug or a bird. Schleimis favourite food is plants and vegetables. She is twenty years old. She loves playing ballgames with her sisters.

I´ve been practicing drawing boxes while waiting for the deployment of a larger web-application to finish. When I looked at the pencilboxes back home I noticed that they looked like the head and body of a robot. So I finished the drawing and colored it with markers.

flower

I dreamt about this flower a lot of times lately and in my dreams I spent countless hours of drawing it. I finally managed to do it in real life too - hopefully the dreams stop now ...

a branch in blender

This animation was inspired by the branch I drew last week. I used empties as hook elements on the bevel curves to make the curves grow. It´s the same technique I described in this tutorial in january last year.
