Morning Sketches 3

My version of a fairytale prince and princess 🙂

What do you think of  the outfits I imagined? They are inspired by the Romanian traditional costumes. Check them out here La Blouse Roumaine. You’ll fall in love! 😉

So much to learn from history…

For  a few weeks now I’ve been working on the development phase of a graphic novel based on true historical events (deportation of Romanian families to Siberia after Soviet occupation in WWII) all narrated from the perspective of an old woman who was a little girl back then. I decided to choose this subject after I got completely BLOWN AWAY by her extraordinary story.  As much as young people dislike history and as fed up as some other people are with soviet stereotypes overly used by Hollywood, this story is such a breath of fresh air because it is personal, it is unbiased and it speaks so clearly of the power of the human spirit when  guided by true faith… and of the unequaled moral beauty and strength of our grandfathers’ generation. This is definitely a story that has to, needs to be known …

I’m not sure when my novel is going to be finished… but IT WILL BE so help me God! >.<

A few fun sketches

Hi everyone! thank you so much for all your attention on my last post. I see WIP steps are quite popular so I’ll be definitely uploading some more in the future 🙂

These are just a few fun and random sketches I decided to share and hope you’ll like them. Pencil drawings and sketches give me a very liberating feeling just because I get to play with the line and because I’m not using any reference. So it’s a also a way for me to prove to myself how much knowledge and practice I’ve acquired on human anatomy and how “adventurous” I can go on poses without needing references. Some of these are very cartoony though but the principle still applies.

Thanks for watching! ^_^
