Besides our multimedia work, we also enjoy focusing on traditional illustration work — both hand-made and digital, stylus-created pieces. Illustrations come in all shapes and sizes from vector work to hand-crafted charcoal. This is the type of work that takes artistic talent and we love the challenge of creating unique scenery, elements and objects. We can use these assets for various purposes such as prints, multimedia combination with graphic design, or for your own choosing if you wish to contact us.
Going from pencil drawing to a digital illustration resembling a vintage painting:
Here I fixed the legs a bit after taking a look what a horse actually looks like and not just using my memory or ideas:
Here is another illustration that started out as a hand-made piece I created and turned into a digital drawing using the iPad and a stylus (Apple Pencil):
Here is an abstract concept of a landscape as a wizard with a cloak approaches a hill or cave of sorts. It is a gaming or fantasy novel cover concept:
Pixel art rendition of it:
This bird below was done with a stylus on iPad and the background was creates from an image of the Warsaw night sky and a single cloud in Warsaw (as backdrop) with everything else added to make it more interesting. This includes all the other clouds and wind, as well as fog, which was done using an iPad stylus and various brush strokes and across a couple apps. We have variations of this piece, which we may present below. These variations include multiple birds flying simultaneously and even ufos added in. However, for no, just enjoy the vintage and birds-eye view.
This figure was drawn entirely on iPad with a stylus and the different versions to its right were created in Illustrator:
Some more digital illustrations created this time around from total scratch and using fantasy as the theme (notice the similar cloaked figure from above):
The Doc (from pencil and paper to digital):
Here are some hand-drawn with lead gaming concept samples for a gaming-based character:
More variations of media:
Below are samples of our hand-created artwork using our imagination and standard art tools. We created these pieces from scratch using pastels, charcoal or lead. The pastels we used include oil, soft and some instances hard; or, alternitavely. we used a combination of all three variations. The man getting mugged piece, for instance, was done all in oil pastels. Some other pieces were outlined in lead pencil than created using soft pastels, charcoal or hard pastels.
These were simple images and not official scans, but we have better scans and higher resolution images available in more print-friendly formats on request or purchase.
Keep in mind that these are just a small selection of samples of both digital and hand-made illustrations. We can also use these for print and again we can combine aspects of them into custom-tailored ideas you need for visual creation, graphic design or video production.
Combining oil pastels for the warrior’s armor, good quality hard pastels for the spell fireball coming out of the wizard’s hand and soft pastels for the cave backdrop and charcoal for the cave pillars or rocks.
