The Cheetah

Here is the illustration for this week a proud and beautiful Cheetah! Cheetahs are animals of extreme beauty and of course speed – they are the fastest animals on land, so I have read recently – but unfortunately also an endangered species. If you like big cats please contribute here:

Hello! Keeping the creativity promise as per 2015’s resolution and here is the latest illustration called ‘Mills and Castles’ and -inspired- by beauty that older buildings have. Also by mentioning some inspiration by warriors, nature, castles here is a contemporary version of a static vector building construction. Clean shapes and of course keeping it as colourful as ever!

Cosmic

Here is the latest illustration it is called ‘Cosmic’ and has been created in probably more that 2-3 cafes – as all my illustrations made with the best possible intentions. It might seem strange to some going to a cafe all the time especially on sunny weekends and doing all these drawings instead of just lying down somewhere in the sunshine – oh well – I like to create my illustrations somewhere with people and noise, especially after work or during the weekends when I simply like to have some creative fun, and I live in tiny tiny room too! Such is the life of a creative – what can be done – this is a blessing or a curse – take it or leave it – I think I ‘ll take it 🙂

Whoop

After The Fair

This is my latest illustration that comes along with the season after visiting some markets/fairs! This is a vector textured image and was fun to create it as usual! I also wanted to add a bit of perspective on this one, while adding more detailed elements. © Elli Chortara

Cycle To The Sky – theme drawing

Here is my latest illo! This is for the collab theme choice drawing exercise/challenge. This time it was ‘Cycle To The Sky’ and have used a more subtle palette to create a dreamy effect upon the kind of realistic cityscape.
