Pairi Daiza

A couple of weeks ago I went to an animal park called Paira Daiza. It used to be a bird park called Paradisio but then they changed their name and now they have all kinds of animals. It is the only zoo in Belgium where you can see pandas. That alone makes it pretty special. The pandas where well hidden through. I think I walked past them like two times before I found them. They also had adorable little squirrel monkeys. In dutch their name is “doodshoofdaapjes” which sounds a lot more scarier. They are super cute thought and were not afraid of people at all.  Here are some of the pictures.

 

 

Watercolor Unboxing

New paints came in a couple days ago, but I haven’t had the time to test them out.
This pallet has double the colors I had before. So much more possibility’s.
The paper on the right are the swatches.
I don’t think I coloured them in completely right but it’ll do

Schmincke watercolors, Starry Colors (Kuretake) and white gel pen on Canson mixed media paper.

Same character that I drew before, but looks much better. I can still spot some small mistakes that I could’ve done differently, but I like the overall look of it. I don’t have that many colors on my Schmincke pallet. These ones are more meant to paint landscapes. I might buy the 24 half pan set.

Winsor & Newton watercolors and white gel pen

I finally saw the movie on an air plane going to Japan. I was a little bit disappointing, maybe because I couldn’t understand half of what was being said due to the motors on the aircraft. I had to rely on subtitles. But then I saw a second time and I didn’t really like it all that much. All the thing I liked from Harry Potter were missing in this movie. I did like the character design of Newt.

Capture this

A couple of weeks ago I bought my first reflex camera (canon 1300d). It is such an amazing camera. I’ve been testing it our by photographing my cute little chihuahua. His name is Nori and he’s around five months now. As you can see he’s super photo genetic. There are some more pictures on my flickr account.

I started watching this show called Shadowhunters on Netflix and I’m really liking it. I just had to draw some fan art from it. I’m not totally pleased with the drawing, but I like the colouring.

I also started to read the books, I bought them sometime last year very cheaply but never gotten around to reading them.  There is probably going to be more (and better) fan art of them in the future.

I’m in the beginning of book 4 now and I’m kinda curious about what’s going to happen because everything was wrapped up so nicely in the book 3. Let’s hope it’s just as good.
