Drawing project – W.I.T.C.H. 20th anniversary

And FINALLY, after… years, I am glad to post an article in this section of my blog!

20 years ago, in April, a wonderful comic was issued in Italy: Disney’s W.I.T.C.H., originally created by Elisabetta Gnone, Barbara Canepa and THE MASTER, Alessandro Barbucci. In 2001 I was roughly as old as the five main characters of this comic and I still love it today. Well, I like it up to issue #60, then things changed a bit and it was not so enjoyable anymore for me. But still, Witch has been an important part of my life and thanks to Barbucci’s wonderful style it is also one of the reasons I started to draw.

When I realized that this year is the 20th anniversary of this comic, I interrupted my “non-drawing period” and wanted to make a little tribute to this comic that means so much to me.

Enjoy 🙂

As always – please do not steal my artwork! If you repost it somewhere, thank you a lot! But don’t forget to credit me as artist and link to my blog 🙂

Character Digital Painting (Video + Step-by-Step)

This is a random character that I designed and is part of a series of three similar characters. For this series, I focussed on two aspects: one, working with shapes; two, each portrait is painted with different shades of the same hue.

Here’s a short (3 mins) time lapse video of how I made this portrait, from the sketch to the very final details. Scroll down and continue reading this post to see the step-by-step explanation of the process.
