Illustration Friday: Trick or Treat


Halloween, when gigantic beasts from hell walk door to door asking for candy ...
A character I made for a competition and my first digital painting.

Illustration Friday: The Blues 2


Two weeks ago I saw an old video with Janet Baker as Dido in Purcell's opera "Dido and Aeneas". It was "Dido's Lament", the end of the opera when dido dies. I was very impressed by her great voice and acting (and by the oldstyle costumes, too) and so I was inspired to create this illustration.
And for the people, who are interesting, the text of "Dido's Lament":

Thy hand, Belinda, darkness shades me,
On thy bosom let me rest,
More I would, but Death invades me;
Death is now a welcome guest.
When I am laid in earth, May my wrongs create
No trouble in thy breast;
Remember me, but ah! forget my fate.
