Shadowness - anako http://shadowness.com Born in 1987, Poland. Currently managing my own business of freelance illustration. http://aeterne.deviantart.com/ en A boy and his golem http://shadowness.com/anako/a-boy-and-his-golem <a href="http://shadowness.com/anako/a-boy-and-his-golem"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item9/274025/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />Phew, long time no updates! Commercial work is absorbing me so much! But in the meantime I finally managed to paint a picture I had wanted to paint for a long time. Initially it was supposed to be a simple concept art, but it somehow evolved into a full illustration. The boy's name is Felix and he found himself a very peculiar friend - a golem! They travel across ancient cities and have many fantastic adventures. See some sketch and Felix concept sketch <a href="http://anako-art.tumblr.com/post/33572806980/oh-i-know-i-havent-been-posting-anything-for-like">HERE</a>! I hope that you like it!!

You can read about this project here http://aeterne.deviantart.com/journal/38785674/. Summary of the character" Name: Saphir, probably. (if you have other suggestions please say!) Involvement: Secondary male character; Side of a conflict: Phoenix Organization; Age: 15-16 years old; Personality: An orphan who was adopted and raised by Trion's (main male character) parents. Very quiet and withdrawn boy. Type of an introvert who hides all the feelings and problems inside and fights them alone. Very unstable emotionally, he was diagnosed with mental illnes (schizophrenia-like disorder) at the age of 10. At the same time he became in possession of some sort of telekinetic power which he can't yet control (it's highly connected to his emotions). Sephir had always looked up to his older stepbrother, admiring him and living in his shadow. However, Trion is the only person whom he trusts and who understands him. Interests: Adventure stories, biology, zoology; Photoshop CS5 & Wacom Intuos 3 Sat, 12 May 2012 15:28:03 -0400 Snowflake http://shadowness.com/anako/snowflake-2 <a href="http://shadowness.com/anako/snowflake-2"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item8/222369/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />My character Snowflake in a digital painting style.

I haven't been drawing anything for myself for ages. So when the opportunity finally arrived, I randomly picked up one of my 'to-finish' sketches, and this is the effect. Nothing special, but so much fun! Hope you'll enjoy. :heart Photoshop CS5 & Wacom Intuos 3 Thu, 26 Apr 2012 14:08:40 -0400 The ruins of Nakh-Moreth http://shadowness.com/anako/the-ruins-of-nakh-moreth <a href="http://shadowness.com/anako/the-ruins-of-nakh-moreth"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item7/193469/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />Finally something with a proper background. : ) Illustration with characters from my future-written-story. Didn't come out as I had imagined, but well, now at least I'm aware that I suck at backgrounds. :P You can see the sketch of this picture on my blog: http://anako-art.blogspot.com/2012/02/ruins-of-nakh-moreth-sketch.html .

Honestly, it was my first time painting skin that dark, but it was a fantastic experience.

Trying to evolve my style in some way, because I felt like I'm stuck. This girl was highly inspired by Jason Chan's illustrations - if you don't know this guy, you DEFINITELY should check him out! He's a genius. I tried to mimic his way of shading and lighting especially. She looks a bit plastic, but I'm happy overall. Oh, the plane? Ah, just a silly random idea.

This time Camille, her other character, an adorable and cheerful girl. Believe or not, but this was my very first time I acutally *painted* teeth, haha. I find the final effect very pleasing. ^^ Photoshop & Intuos 3 Sun, 05 Feb 2012 09:28:18 -0500 Feliane - commission http://shadowness.com/anako/feliane--commission <a href="http://shadowness.com/anako/feliane--commission"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item7/188446/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />This is a portrait commission for charming Feliane of her character named... Feliane. :D She's a lovely little princess with a whimsical personality. ;) Photoshop & Intuos 3 Sun, 05 Feb 2012 09:28:17 -0500 guardians of the forest http://shadowness.com/anako/guardians-of-the-forest <a href="http://shadowness.com/anako/guardians-of-the-forest"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item6/166655/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />Finally finished, after a few months of not-having-time-at-all. I know it's not perfect - the wolf's fur isn't as cool as I wanted it to be, the lighting is totally inconsistent and the wind is blowing in different directions, but well! I'm happy overall.
