i scream you scream, we all scream...

So I know the weather is getting cold but to me ice cream is good in any weather. Actually it's not really that cold here....just cloudy and kind of cold at night. And in case anyone was wondering the flavor most requested by this young lady is ...chocolate!

Neat-O-Politan ice cream was brought to you by Painter

Garrett Shikuma said...

So cute! I like her scarf with the little fuzzies at the end of it!!!

Smook said...

Do I see a little chartruese in the scarf? Wonderful illustration, Eren! I love the little details on the girl's head!

wayne said...

mmm... icecream... mmm...
Lookin' good!

Eren said...

Dik, ain't no school like the old school!

Garrett, me gusta mucho los fuzzies too! Why I say this in Spanish I don't know...

Smook, indeed there is a bit of chartreuse...color of champions! Or something like that....

Wayne, my dear darling Wayne, I love you better than ice cream! (and NO I'm not refering to that song I really mean it!)

Thanks to all for the comments and to all a good day!

Steve Daye said...

brain freeeeeeze!!!

Gerald said...

Fantastic illustration. Anytime is definitely a good time for ice-cream. Nothing like a good ol' sugar cone and 3 scoops!

Anne-arky said...

I am envious of your mad Painter skills...is there a particular technique you use? I'm totally curious.

Eren said...

Thank you very much Steve, Chia & Gerald!

Anne,
Thanks so much! I just sent you an email because my comment was getting pretty long!

Rock on my fellow artists!

hatebarewalls said...

What is Painter, I am guessing that it is a computer program but I have never heard of it. Details, please!

Alina Chau said...

ICE-CREAM!! Love your illo!! Pretty as always ... BUT .. with the special ICE-CREAM theme ... that's made it 10 times more special to the ice-cream monster and Minty!!! Great stuff!!

PaintMonster said...

wow super cute design!!
when I saw your art, I remembered Herbert Leupin, Savignac, Mary Blair!!
they are my favorite artist of the world!!
Your illustration is full of warmth and happy.

Aw poo.....I wanted to hear your comments about technique too, but now only Anne knows :(

Lovely image, Eren. You've got so much cjarm and appeal packed into these. Love how you handled the hair. Simple yet effective.

Eren said...

Thanks so much Brian, Guy, Neelambari and Paintmonster! I really appreciate your comments!

Hatebarewalls, Painter is indeed a program....it's wonderful! It's great at making digital painting look a little more traditional.

Alina, I knew you would appreciate this illustration!! I am a fellow ice cream fiend...

Steve, since your paintings are awesome and therefore I think you are awesome I will share on technique...
Ok so basically I import my drawings into Painter and begin by using the dry brush for the big shapes. I'll use the calligraphy pen sometimes for the details (nose, mouth). I'll also use the sponge tool for the rosy cheeks and other shading. So I basically use three brushes...and a Wacom!

Smook said...

Thanks Eren! I was curious myself......all I need now is Painter.......

Stef said...

Very sweet illustration Eren, makes me want to start using painter, you're the painter queen!

simone said...

Eren,

Steve Lambe mentioned your site. He and I are workmates. Anyhoo, I just got into blogging and was immediately drawn to all the cute stuff you have posted.

I share a similar love to all things cute, so if you don't mind, I'd like to link to your blog.

It's all great stuff. Keep it up and I'll check out your blog regularly.

Take care,
