For day 23 of #thedailymarker30day I finished an illustration I've been working on forever. For all of you who are curious Here's the story behind it:
A few months ago German illustrator @byjohannafritz asked her followers in one of her posts here on Instagram about fun misspellings which occurred to them. Mine was that I once wrote "Windschwein" instead of "Wildschwein" in one of my translations (in English "wind pig" "instead of "wild pig/boar"). Johanna suggested that this would make a fun illustration, and as I liked the idea I started to lay down some sketches. But I never really liked them. Nonetheless I copied the one which I considered to be best into my watercolor journal. Every now and then I added a bit of color. And today I finally laid down the finishing touches. Actually it looks better than I had expected. But I didn't fully succeed in implementing the wind theme. The boar's just not looking stormy enough. 😂 💨Maybe next time. Give me another couple of months. 😉
For all who are interested: I used Schmincke Horadam watercolors and Polychromos pencils for the coloring.
