15-minutes Talk: Art Mediums

I almost forgot to post about this event! As I was thinking about what to post about this time, I remembered that a small event took place last Wednesday. I think it was on April 11th. Last month, I got invited by a PR student to conduct a small talk/presentation in one of the Universities…

Men Are From Mars and Women Are From Venus

I’m writing a different post this time. Not because I don’t have new designs or sketches to share with you, on the contrary, I have a lot more to post and share. However, it’s been a while since I wanted to share something different, more valuable than just post my paintings and the paints I…

Copic Markers and Acrylics in Fashion Illustrations

I used to paint my illustrations with comic markers (especially when I first knew about them) before using acrylics and watercolors.

Painting Hatayi Motifs 2

  Follow my blog with Bloglovin Last week I finished recording the last video from painting my Hatai motifs. I used different materials to show you the difference in each one of the painted flowers. You can’t tell the difference until all the paint dried for sometimes when painting with pigments, the paint seems pale…

Islamic Patterns & Tezhib

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Beginning 2015 I joined Turkish illumination/gilding course with my wonderful teacher Dilara Yarci. It simply means painting with gold. This requires special gold ink and technique to paint old Ottoman motifs. The complication of the process lies in drawing the motifs first, then at painting them. And one of the…

30 digital illustrations for Instagram

After thinking about it I came up with a simple idea of uploading a character design daily for a whole month. It’s both a…
