Strawberry Shortcakes

strawberry shortcakes

I fell in love with this watercolor painting that was featured in it. I wanted to badly to draw one for myself, so I did. Of course, I didn’t do it to match the one in the movie, I changed a few details in it so it can have my own view inside.

The movie is about four women trying to cope with modern life and the ups and downs. It was based off a manga. You can read the review by clicking the link.
The drawing is in watercolors, on A4. As usual…

Oke, acest desen am vrut sa-l termin aproape toata vara. Dupa ce am privit filmul japonez “Strawberry Shortcakes” m-am indragostit the desenul din acuarela ce apare in el.

Am dorit mult de tot sa desenez unul asemanator pentru mine, asa ca am facut-o. Desigur, n-am vrut sa se asemene prea mult cu cel din film, asa ca am adaugat niste detalii care sa ma defineasca.

Filmul este despre patru femei care trec prin incercari tipice pentru viata moderna, cu suisuri si coborasuri. Povestea este bazata dintr-o manga. Puteti citi recenzia in engleza dand click pe link.
Desenul e in acuarela, pe hartie A4. Ca de obicei…

Destiny

Destinul nu este ceva aflat in afara noastra. Il construim zi de zi, pas cu pas. Mai veseli, mai tristi…

Compozitie pe fundal A4, cu liner negru si carioci. Fundalul a fost finalizat in Photoshop.

Destiny isn’t something outside of our person. We build it day by day, step by step. Cheerful or sad.

Composition on A4 paper, with black liner and colors. Background was made using Photoshop.

Incognito

Compozitie pe coala A4, la care am folosit mixed media dar si putin Photoshop pentru fundal. La inceput ii lasasem chipul sa se vada, apoi m-am razgandit pentru ca acoperit, o face mai misterioasa. De asemenea m-am inspirat din manga, arta japoneza fiind o sursa buna de unde se pot invata multe.

Mixed media and also some Photoshop for the background. At first she had a face, but then I decided she looks more mysterious without it. Also manga inspired, Japanese art always has something you can learn from. Composition on A4 paper.

Lady with the dogs

Doamna cu caini este un personaj din cartea scriitoarei Jeanette Winterson, Sexul ciresilor. Femeia care poarta aceasta porecla este minunata, directa si sincera. Fura inima cititorilor inca de la primele pagini.
In desenul meu am ilustrat momentul in care se duce la circul din oras, si este pusa sa stea in acelasi leagan cu un elefant. Atunci cand se aseaza in leagan, elefantul zboara in sus, spre cer. Mi-a placut mult amuzamentul pur in aceasta situatie imposibila, dar totusi foarte adevarata intre paginile cartii.

It’s a character illustration after reading Jeanette Winterson’s book, Sexing the cherry. The woman is nicknamed “The lady with dogs” and has a wonderful, direct and quite sincere personality. She capture’s the readers heart right from the first pages.
In my drawing she is illustrated when a circus comes to town and she goes to sit in the same teeter with an elephant. The moment she sits down, the animal goes flying in to the sky. I loved the real amusement in this impossible situation, but still so very true inside the pages of Jeanette’s book.
Made with watercolor and fiber crayon colors on A4 paper.
