According to some legends the entrance to Faeria, the faries world, can be found walking between two trees that grew up together.

The illustration is, as usual, drawed in pencil and ink and painted with digital colours:

Those past weeks I've been a bit nostalgic, so, with my sister, I started a long trip in the past. That basically means we started to watch again an anime series of my childhood.

The Japanese name is Uchū Kaizoku Kyaputen Hārokku in Italy, it was known as Capitan Harlock, I really don't know if it had different names elsewhere, but it was - no doubt about this - the best anime series ever!

As a child, I was obviously in love with Harlock and maybe that's the reason why I always remembered with simpathy Met: the alien who lived with the crew on board of Arkadia (or Alkadia or whatever the ship was named in other languages).

It seems that today is Ragnarök: according the Norse mythology the world will end today in the final battle between gods.

So that should be the perfect day to share a picture of a battlefield painted with crayons and digital colours.


In the meanwhile I go and fetch my axe.

I will be ready!

The sock-eater-monster goes hunting

Did you ever wonder where the hell is that sock you are sure you put in the washing machine with its twin brother? 

Why one sock -just one- of the pair goes missed every time you make your laundry?
That, my friends, is the answer: there is a terrible creature, a frightful monster who goes hunting in your washing machine.

Here there is: the horrible Sock-eater-monster!

Pencil drawed and painted in digital colours.

Knock knock

A very quick sketch: a pirate knocking on a door in the hold of his ship.
I basically was in mood for drawing pirates and that, I am afraid, is the only reason behind this picture.

I drawed it with pencil and biro and painted it with digital colours.

What if you're not so happy with an old illustration?
A good idea could be to paint it again on the old base.

I took this very old black and white picture (I made it something like 7 years ago) and painted it and that's the result.

Drawed with in and paited with digital colours

Sometimes my Italian legacy comes out, today it's one of those occasion.

Here there is a Roman soldier, painted in digital colours and drawed with pencil and ink.

I guess he doesn't look like a very smart guy but he is strong and it seems he is a bit upset, so don't mess with him!

Run! Run! Run!

A quik sketch: a man and a dog and their sidecar.

What are they running for? I'm afraid I don't know. 

It was drawed with pencil and ink, and painted in digital colours.

A touch of Art Nouveau style in this portrait drawed with pencil and painted with digital colours while doing experiments with my pen tablet.

Moonshine Lady

This one's born by herself from my pencil while I was just doodling.

I drawed it with a biro and then coloured it with digital paint using the mouse.

The colours I choose make me think to an illustration for kids or teenagers.

Death is just a feeling

A lich is casting a dangerous spell.

Inks are by my friend and collegue Sara Cappoli.

I drawed and painted it with digital colours.

Anyway I do prefer the black and white version:
