    Just as he put on his winter jacket and wants to open the door, it knocks. Family Hase was late, because of the heavy snowfall.

    Gerade als sie sich ihre warmen Wintersachen angezogen hat und dabei ist die Türe zu öffnen, klopft es an der selbigen. Familie Hase hatte sich wegen dem Schneefall etwas verspätet.

    Papa Maus found a tree very quickly and comes home again. Together they decorate the tree until Mama Maus also arrives at home.

    Papa Maus war recht schnell fündig und kommt daraufhin wieder heim. Zusammen schmücken beide schon mal den Baum bis Mama Maus wieder heim kommt.

    hey

    Some of you who follow me on instagram know that i did a drawing challenge in june. Altough it was “just” an everyday doodling challenge i made little pencil illustrations in black and white. I decided to take the daily topics/words and combine it with my Maus character. All in all I really enjoyed the challenge even though i had some bad days when i couldn’t draw or wasn’t motivated enough. Altogether i managed to make 20 Illustrations in that month. For the moment i just scanned them and put the drawings just somewhere in the drawer i put all of my personal illustrations after i scanned them. Yet a few weeks later i thought it was a pity if the drawings were just forgotten somewhere so i thought i give it a try and work on them again. To not destroy the illustrations because i know i am not that good with colours and colouring i decided that i would colour them digitally. For that i used ArtRage that came with my tiny Wacom Bamboo One tablet. It’s quite nice for blending colours because with some settings and adjustments it behaves just like real paint on canvas and you can mix the colours really nice and smoothly. To use ArtRage for me is so much more easy as trying so hard in Photoshop where i have no clue what to do when it comes to painting and all the different functions and brushes. So i had the layer of the drawing and i just multiplied the other layers of paint together. For the colours i try to not use much darker shades than the pencil drawing to not mess with the contrasts. So far i only coloured my five favourites but in the end i will colour them all when i find enough time. I put the drawings together in a set of prints that are each 14,9×14,9m that you can now find in my Etsy Shop.
