This month I’d like to feature a young German artist who’s known as “maulheld” or “deltamue”. Most of her amazing pictures are digital paintings, often created with the free online drawing application ‘Oekaki’.
As a Oekaki Addict myself I can say that she has a kind of unique technique and a very individual style I’ve nowhere else seen before. The choice of colors are very special and the pictures often kinda emotional or/and dark. I love it. If you want to see more, please visit her deviantArt page -here-
current work in Progress… Not yet sure if I’m gonna finish it though…
“Eyes like Ice”
(klick image for full size view)
Since it was drawn with an online drawing application, the tool started bugging around after a while because of the picture’s size I guess. So In the end I couldn’t make it as detailed as wanted and had no Idea for a background (guess because of the pose) that’s why I cropped it a little. However there are some anatomy mistakes (although I had a reference! Oh my…). They bug me a little, but since it’s not directly realism it’s not too bad I guess.
Drawing time: about 6h+
Tool: Shi-Painter, Graphic Tablet, Mouse
that’s what I imagine her saying. A random sketch colored in
Shi-Painter online drawing application to get back to that style ->pic
2.5h all toghether.

What fascinated me first when seeing Eric’s Gallery on DeviantArt was the Unique environment design. That’s why I’d like to present you some of these pictures first.
what I loved most was the choice of colors. But also the technique. The sketchy way of digital painting with a few details added here and there and it looks already perfectly clean. Just fantastic!
