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.

My Youtube-channel


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!

PS: Don’t forget to like, share and subscribe :P.

Back with new work :D

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.
