Taking Shelter

Three owls are making themselves at home in an old tree trunk.

The colors of this picture have turned out considerably more saturated than I planned. However, I really like the result.

The owls are intentionally lit by a light source that is not visible. For that reason, the warm light hitting them could be seen as symbolic. The inspiration for this might come from 3D graphics programs, where it is also possible to set up light sources without having a visible object in the scene that is emitting the light.

This is a look behind the scenes for the creation of the wimmelpicture on my home page.

Visitors of my website should understand at first sight that I'm all about drawings and illustrations. I also want to convey what I am capable of achieving in that area. For these reasons one of the first elements that is visible on the home page is a picture with 92 distinct drawn characters. In the center of it is my logo, which I'm just finishing to draw.
