"The Perfect Bait" by Bobby Chiu

Just bought for myself a new and amazing book by Bobby Chiu "The Perfect Bait" (my Christmas present for myself ). I'm sooo happy because of it! Bobby Chiu have always been a great motivator and inspiration for me and his advices helped me a lot, especially at the beggining of my artistic way.
If you are an artist and you're interested in this book, now is the right time to get it ;) For a limited time there is free shipping world wide and you get access to the audiobook version as well.
P.S. I'm already started to listening an audiobook and already feel myself very inspired! :)

AiW Art Jam

I've been invited to participate in "Alice in Wonderland" Art Jam/ project. The goal of this project is to make a visual translation of the book.
You can find more information --> here.

I got paragraph 520:
`It's the oldest rule in the book,' said the King.
`Then it ought to be Number One,' said Alice.

All illustrations should have been made in B/W, so no colors this time.
But the original work is done in blue tones.

Merry Go Round

I have a wonderful memories from my childhood about merry-go-round. I can remember myself riding a little white pony on a sunny day in amusement park of our town. Oh, it was so much fun :)

What was your favorite animal on merry-go-round?

Some news

I haven't updated anything a month now, but it's not because I have nothing to show or to say ;) So, I'll tell you couple news.

One of the good news is that I'm working on illustrations for the children book with fairytales. It's very enjoyable work! Paintings will be done traditionally with watercolours. And I can't wait to see the finished book. There also will be illustrations of other artists, so it must turn out very interesting.

I would love to show you my new works, but I have to find time to scan them or make photos of them. Hopefully I'll do it soon. But I can show you one of the new drawings, what I did for the estonian music band Zetod (
It's their new member - Matis :)

Bad things also happens sometimes with me. Recently my bag was stolen... there was mobile phone, documents, keys, photo camera and other things. Now when I reported about this accident to police I can just hope that they will find the thief.

Well, I'm going back to work now ^^
Have a great week!

Overalli IV web-films festival

I've been participating in Overalli IV web-films festival with my short animated movie "Spring", even though I didn't get any good place it was great experience for me.
If you're interested to see the winners and other participants you can see them here --> Overalli IV

Thank you everybody who supported me!!!

I want to make this painting traditionally with acrylics on cardboard or canvas, so this digital painting meant to be just a sketch (color test), but I like how it looks and I thought to share it with you.

May be you noticed the difference in style between this and my previous works… well it’s the graffiti influence. I become very excited about street art and I would be happy to go out and try to give color to some gray ugly walls, but unfortunately I’m not able to do this right now… sooo walls are in safe for the moment and can relax, but I’ll return to this thought later ^^

Now when my short animation is done I found time to finish this painting :)

"Spring" - my first animated short film

My first animated short film is done! Ehey!!!
It is very short and pretty simple, but I hope you’ll enjoy it ^^
It’s called “Spring”.

With this short I’m participating in a little competition and I will be very thankful if you will support me and give me your votes (click “Like” button at the bottom of this page --> LINK). Thank you!!! ^^

I’ve asked before will I succeed or fail… well, let’s see:
-I’ve had no experience and no knowledge about animating in Adobe flash, but with this work I’ve learned a lot of new things and developed new skills.
-I’ve had time to finish my short until 20 march (I’ve started in the beginning of march) and I finished it week earlier.
-I did all work by myself.
So for me it’s definitely SUCCESS!
I thought before that it is an impossible mission for me…but I did it and I’m very happy :)
Also I’ve had so much fun working on this short!

For the end I want to say thank you to Youtube and all the awesome guys who share their knowledge with others and of cause to Adobe for their flash professional help guide and adobeTV!
Big thank you for the music to Grizzly616!

I wish to everybody happy springtime!

Success or fail?

I've started a new crazy and mega fun project. It's something I've never done before and I have less than a month to finish it (for today it's left 18 days).
I'm very exited, cause if everything goes well you'll see something very interesting from me... yeah, there is a possibility of fail, but who cares ^^ Like Bobby Chiu said "true failure comes from not trying". So I'm going to do my best and we will see what will happen.

Oh, you whant to know what I'm doing? Ok, I'll tell you... *whisper* I'm doing a flash animated short film ^^
It will be very short and simple, but hopefully cute and funny.

I've never worked in flash before, but with the last two or three days I learned how to use it (understand the basics ^^)... I have a story, some kind of storyboard, background, two characters with details... so I hope I can start to animate them tomorow.
Oh, so much thing to do! I feel like I have to remove sleeping time from my schedule ^^
So, what it would be? Success or fail?
We will see it at the end of the month!

Red Riding Hood

I made two different works with Red Riding Hood:
The first is for the Childrensillustrator club, it's a watercolour illustration.

I like how this painting came out and after scanning I spent time correcting colours (like most of scanners my are also a big colour eater) to make it look like the original and when I was satisfied with the result I decided to see how this illustration looks on other computers, and guess what I saw... an overcontrasted painting with odd colours... I was shocked, but I think it looked bad not because I did something wrong, I'm afraid that the problem is in a bad calibration of monitors, wich many people have... so now I'm pretty curious about how you see my works ^^
My monitor is not 100% perfectly calibrated, but I've changed settings and I think he's pretty good.

If you are interested in your monitor calibrating ask Google for more information, he knows everything :)
And here is some useful links:
-Monitor Calibration 

Well, returning to Red Riding Hood: 

The second work was kind of experiment for me and I enjoyed to painting it a lot :)
It's acrylic on cardboard.

Have a lovely week!

This painting was inspired by song of Elton John "Your Song" (lyrics by Bernie Taupin).
I really like this song and here is a very nice cover by Ellie Goulding: [link]
