Realistic Illustrative Logo and Mascot

Thursday, March 18, 2010

Another large part of my clients, since I started my freelancer illustrator career, is people who want illustrative logo design and mascot images. I know that realistic logos are not that popular as symbolic and abstract ones (although I can design such logos too) but this sort of logos is still in demand. As to mascots they are always in demand and especially for web applications. I want to show you a few realistic illustrative logos and mascots created by me.

Drawing Cross Hatching

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

If you look at my earlier posts you will certainly notice that my favorite drawing technique is cross-hatching. I have recently understood that I had been constantly emphasizing my ability to draw using the cross-hatching technique but almost all my examples of cross hatching drawings were portraits. However my hatching art is not limited to portraits only, and today I would like to show you a few non-portrait cross-hatching drawings and illustrations. I think many of these works shows pretty well how to draw cross-hatching in order to create the volume of an image and unusual, cool look. I tried my best to make my cross-hatching style somewhat close to the hatching and cross-hatching drawing style of such famous artists as Albrecht Dürer (, Gustave Doré, John Tenniel, Rembrandt, Leonardo da Vinci who are well-known masters of the hatching drawing technique and whose art inspires me a lot. That is why some of my cross-hatch drawings look like old-fashion engraving illustrations.

The book I recommend for learning how to draw with pen and ink

A lot of people ask me what kind of pen I use for drawing cross hatching. Well, I prefer using Uni Pin Fine Line pens 0.1 - 0.5 mm for this drawing style.
