Beautifull african portrait made for a friend. Concept was inspired by the work of one of my favorite artist, Sarah Golish.
We try to hide our feelings, but we forget our eyes speak. The eyes tell more then 1000 words. That’s the main reason I leave out the pupils in the eyes. I try to get the expression out of the face and posture.
Another african art digitally altered. The second photo is the original one.
Hi everyone. I ma back. This time I’m back for good!! I have been absent for about a year, due to my study. Now I’m back and I started my own Youtube-channel, called Africanartista.
With my Youtube-channel I would like to show how I make my illustrations and artwork. This video shows one of my illustrations. I will put pictures of the result below.
Enjoy!! I hope you like it!

Hi everyone. As you know I’ve been absent for a few months, because of difficult circumstances in my life. During this time I unfortunately haven’t been able to post anything on my blog.
Now I’m back :D. Motivated than ever and I would like to show you what I’ve been working on. These are two portraits I’ve been working on for the last two months:
The first portrait is a 3-D portrait of a dark skinned woman with an Afro hairstyle. The afro in this portrait is made up of small beads. As you can probably imagine it took me a while to finish this. Today I finished it. I am very happy with the result. The second portrait is a black and white artwork of Bob Marley.
This is my first time that I made a 3-D portrait. I like to try new things. My style is very all over the place. I often find it difficult to work within one style. In my previous posts you will see a few illustrations with prints. This is mainly because I love African prints. Eventhough I wanted to work within that style (african prints), I tried something new: The use of beads. I find that very interesting. For the moment I think I will continue using beads in my portraits.
