(An early) Week 5

Since I was feeling guilty about my previous 2 illustrations for my weekly illustration challenge, this week I thought I should try and do not only something completely different, but something i'm not good at drawing as well. What better than environment painting?! So here it is. Even though it lacks some detail, i'm quite pleased with it.

Week 4

I can't believe i lasted through one month, and I've still got lots of other illustrations started! Well, one self-evaluation so far would be they're starting to become too similar styles and the last two have been quite girly illustrations... But i'll try to do something completely different for next week.

Week 3

It was a busy week, yet I could do it! Here's the 3rd week's illustration. I also started other illustrations for the following weeks, so unless something goes wrong, I'll be able to keep up with my challenge for a few more weeks.

Website Illustrations

These are the illustrations from my website Illusian. The first batch is still the current design, while the last image is the design to be once I have time to work on the next version of the website. Although I'm not going to use the whole thing, but only the first part of the image with the giant girl in the city.

Trying different things - Week 1

Seems like I've gone back into an illustration phase again! Lately I've been trying different things with illustrations, making each in a completely different style. I'll try to finish one illustration per week.

Book illustrations

Here are some examples of my illustrations for books (some were published, some weren't.)

Little Girl's Dreams by Inci Tulpar
Story © Inci Tulpar
© Citlembik Publications.

This one is from a Turkish legends book which is still pending to be published.

These two were made as trial illustrations for a publishing company. I never got the job unfortunately.

It begins...

To start with, I thought I'd put up some of my older illustrations first.
Some examples of my personal illustrations:

This one was inspired by a dream I had about a year ago. The building on the background is a train station in Kadikoy, my hometown in Istanbul. Every other element (The cranes, the balloon) are also can be seen in various places in Kadikoy, i just decided to cram them together in one image.

After reading Alexander Pushkin again after a long time, my love for solitary places and moods showed itself. I have a little animation of this image on my showreel too:

Character designs for my next animation. Once I get some time and hopefully some funding, I will start this project.

This one came out just as a practise of texture and layer mode use.

One of the favorite games of Turkish boys - leap frog. And quite often these kids I see have a tuft of white hair, I wonder why?

I made this one for my illustration class, quite a few years ago. it's the only traditional media illustration in this list. (Acrylics on paper)
