My first piece of a new series of works called “Unexpected”.

This piece describes the fabled visitation of two ancient souls in an otherworldy civilzation.

With this piece I tried to combine urban art with classic concept art. Especially with the characters. My work has always been mostly pen and ink illustrations, so I think it’s really interesting to try and keep the style and transfer it into a digital painting. This concept derived from a sketch in my sketchbook, so i used it as a reference through the painting. What i truly find fascinating about painting, is the atmosphere that can be captured, which is much more difficult to capture in pen and ink.

I will be continuing working with this digital medium in my series “Unexpected”, as it is also a very fast and clean way to express ideas.
