Theses are pretty old. I have some others from the series, but the project pretty much stopped.
Work and life and kids and what not.


Mostly 3D and some PS tweaks. I would love to get them even more illustrative, now that my technical skills have progressed.
I have a soft spot for these. I'll get back to them eventually.

Guys, unfortunately because I'm just flat out of time, the judging for the CRANKIEST OLD MAN OR WOMAN IN THE WORLD!!! Competition will have to wait until after August 5th when I get back from SIGGRAPH. But thanks to all of you talented artists who submitted fantastic work for the competition and generally made this thread a really lively place to be! Looking forward to seeing the results of the voting when I get back!

I recentely stumbled over this thread and thought I ll share one of mine - I made it for a fairy tale book which will be released at the end of the year I think. Done in Open Canvas with a few tweak in PS- this was also my very first try on doing a children book illustration

Oh my goodness! I can't believe I went on vacation when this cropped up...

This is my "thing"...

Great entries although some of the better illustrations aren't geared towards children. Maybe teenagers...

The ape with the girl is my favorite although I prefer a bit of a wilder color scheme for a childrens book series... great nonetheless...


anyway can someone please tell me if there will be more????

Solomon & birdybear - I believe rebeccak is off enjoying the fun at SIGGRAPH so you still have time to post something if you'd like. Her last post said she wouldn't be back until after Aug 5th.

And even then, I'm sure that we'd all love to see more fantastic illustrations. Post em if you got em!

well, i made this illustration in memory of a german fairy tail named "Frau Holle" (sorry, i wasnt able to find out wether there is an english translation oder specific name) by the Grim brothers. It is a very old tale, so it is not quite so polished as the childrens storys from today, it is scary and full of hidden morals (well, i always thought she is scary).

i hope you like it.




i used schminke aquarell colours and white acryl for this one. the approximate time spent on it is round about 4 hours and 1 hour of colour adjustment in photoshop because the scanner didn`t get the colours right at first.

I believe that in English, the Grimm brother's fairy tale is usually titled "Mother Holle".
Interesting illustration!

hagarun,

What charming work!

Solomon,


You mean that you are offering lapdances? How curious!

birdybear,

We'll definitely have more competitions. I hope you can participate!!

Llynna,

What a cool illustration! It needs some refining, particularly around the arms, but the concept and technique is really cool! Keep up the good work!

Great stuff, guys!!! Keep it up!!!

thank you rebecca for your reply. i am really unhappy about the arms too, but since its not digital..... and i only had limited time, because i can only do traditional work at my parents.... just don't try acryl or so in a 12 m≤ student flat *gg*.

Llynna,

Wow, I had not even realized that the work was not digital! Kudos for getting acrylics to work for, and not against you!! Acrylics are a notoriously difficult medium with which to work, and space limitations can indeed make the process that much harder!! I experienced a lot of frustration with traditional painting - some successes, many more failures - until I discovered the joy of Photoshop, a Wacom pen, and that fabulous shortcut, Ctrl + Z / Undo. However, I think I am much the better for having gone through the traditional route and experienced all of those failures along the way - it makes digital work that much easier and more rewarding. Too often, I think people jump into digital work with the expectation that the tools will do the work for them. This is definitely not the case!!! I have slaved away with charcoal, acrylics, oils, oil pastels, etc., and it all equates to good experience.

Hope to see more of your work!

~Rebeccak
