While I do a lot of acrylic paintings, I love painting digitally and experiment, also my children books that I write are illustrated mostly digitally so I thought I post here, not only lurk in acrylics forum :)
These works were once posted here on my second account to which I lost password and email so let's keep it nice and clean within my account that I use officially.

This little fellow is Mufin, my character born in 2009 and since then carrying all my ideas and various concepts I have in mind. He's so good he earned himself a book that I am currently writing and illustrating.

Tech stuff: all paintings done in Corel Painter Essentials 4 with touch of Photoshop CS5, using Wacom tablet, on old laptop with crappy ram and processor, that is serving me well for over 5 years now, replacing another prehistoric machine that I started with loooong years ago :D

Nice work, as usual. Always a story in there.

I think my last computer barely lasted 5 years, then bang, everything was gone. Better be prepared for the crash.

Michelle - I'm always prepared, luckily I have a bit better knowledge about computers than most people do. I changed hardware twice in this machine and generally I take good care of it as this is my tool for earning money and I think it will last for next 2-3 years. Then, of course, I will have to find money to get a new machine but so far this one's perfect. And I'm not a wealthy person so I won't go crazy about every new stuff they release. My first computer was working for nearly 6 years and it would work longer if I wasn't so eager to get a laptop for comfort of use ;)
Indeed, there are stories in there. Thanks! :cat:

Barb - thanks a lot!

Thank you very much :)
Decided to share here my latest series of works. I have my hands busy with my book and two other projects that I am very excited about but these don't take much time and I made them specifically for my Storybird fans so they can come up with stories based on my works. To my surprise, they are more popular than I expected so this series will continue ^_^
