Cherish

Creative Every Day Challenge: December. The theme is Cherish. Picked my watercolors again. This one is a study, and I choose to paint violetes. I do cherish watercolors (although I’m not really good with them, and I really need better ones) and this flowers too. Another year, and I successfully finished this challenge again. I already joined CED 2016, so expect more art from me in this blog again in...

Blue Forest

Creative Every Day Challenge: November. The theme is Art Every Day Month (but I’m not following). Well, after an entire month making art every day… another one is a bit too much (plus, I’m studying for my exams, so…) Made while I listened to the new Enya album, Dark Sky Island. A little bit of stress relief… in a break from my studies for my exams this week. (sweats nervously)...

Magic

Creative Every Day Challenge: October. The theme is Magic. What’s more magic than Card Captor Sakura? It was a productive month: 31 days of inktober. A bit (super) late.   Creative Every Day Challenge: October. O tema é Magic/Magia. O que é mais mágico que Card Captor Sakura? Foi um mês produtivo: 31 dias de inktober. Um pouco (super) tarde.   Ink pen + colored pencils CCS (C) CLAMP This year, I’m...

Drink Me

Creative Every Day Challenge: September. The theme is School. (but I’m not following the theme this month) So behind this month. I was focused on my assignments for college and the tests. Well. This was planned to be a print for my online shops. The thing is that 30th of september came too fast and I had nothing finished. In honor of 150 years of the publication of Alice In...

Siren Song

Creative Every Day Challenge: August. The theme is The Sea. A little bit late, but it’s here! Well, one of the ideas was to paint in the ocean’s color (which I did). And to see the sea… it’s really easy, because I live by the sea (in front of it actually, hehe), so I see the sea everyday. This mermaid it’s like a statue. The reason behind this is because...

Lilac

Creative Every Day Challenge: July. The theme is Slow. I tried to slow down a bit this month, since I’m on a break from college. Even so, I usually find myself working in some crafts or designs for my shop. It seems that I am unable to do nothing even if I try! I also used my free time for improve my drawing and designing skills. From one of those studies...

Boundaries

Creative Every Day Challenge: June. The theme is Boundaries. Yes, Yuuko again. The boundaries that I pushed for this illustration are sketching, lineart and colors all directly on SAI. Lately, I’ve using sketch and lineart by hand, then I scan and paint digitally, because I find it more comfortable.   Creative Every Day Challenge: Junho. O tema é Boundaries (Limites). Sim, Yuuko de novo. Os limites que eu empurrei para esta ilustração foram esboço,...

Pink Rain

It’s always so nice to mix traditional with digital. My artwork for May’s Creative Everyday Challenge was made by mixing my inking with my adored ink pens, digital painting and my newest patterns (Chevron and Raindrop, especially made for my shop in Colab55). I’m planning to transform this drawing in some products for my shop too. I’m super excited with my shop. 😀 This month the theme is Pink, so that’s why...

La floriculture

The theme for this april in Creative Everyday Challenge is Poetry. My illustration doesn’t fit the theme so well, so I’m not following the theme this month. I happened to find this drawing, so I decided to finish it, and paint with watercolors. It’s been years since I used watercolors, so it was nice to pick them again. 🙂 O tema de abril do Creative Everyday Challenge é Poetry (poesia). A...

Um Lugar ao Sol

This month, the theme in Creative Every Day Challenge is Books. At the exact moment I read this I was absolutely sure about my choice: to illustrate a scene from one of my favorite books, A Place in The Sun, from my favorite brazilian writer, Erico Veríssimo. I read almost all of his books, and he’s very famous for the serie Time and the Wind (which is very good too!),...
