First Aid Kit


Bigger version

I love to listen to girly music when I'm drawing and "First Aid Kit" is one band I'm listening to a lot recently. It just makes me want to draw flowers and pretty girls all day. Actually I wanted to do realistic portraits of the two girls, but then it became more of a mood picture and I didn't care about likeness anymore.

After I finished this piece I decided to do the real portraits anyways ( which was a lot of fun) but I will post them tomorrow or on Wednesday.

The sketch for this one:

Einfach traumhaft schön, Maike. Ich bewundere vor allem die Texturen und die genau richtige Mischung aus "Krikelkrakel" und perfekt ausgearbeitet.
Wahnsinn!!!

Sweet :) I hope you've sent it to them. I think they would love it, too. Doesn't matter, if the likesness isn't that high in my oppinion.

Maike said...

Thank you! I will! But I think I send it together with the portraits, which I'll post on wednesday.

Your sketch is incredibly vibrant. I would love to see the immediacy of the piece captured in the final illustration.

Maike said...

I agree! It is still a problem for me to get the immediacy into my final illustrations.
But I keep on trying and experimenting! :)

I did a story based on this illustration ^ ^. It's serious. I loved this image.
