“Dasavatar” is a series of artworks designed by Shajin Paikath (catch him on Behance) which shows the 10 avatars of Lord Vishnu – different incarnations that take the form of divine intervention provided by Vishnu during the various stages of human evolution. The Dasavatar (ten avatars) are meant to re-establish dharma (righteousness) and destroy tyranny and injustice on earth.
These illustrations of the 10 incarnations of Lord Vishnu feature minimal, mindful design leading to splendid results! I am sharing some of the artworks here. (You can see the complete set on Behance.)
Here comes a pencil color artwork of “Sherlock” (the BBC TV series). I completed this one a while ago and it portrays our very beloved master of deduction, the world’s only “consulting detective”, Sherlock Holmes.
I just love the series and I believe Benedict Cumberbatch has played the character really well! Waiting to see some more of Sherlock’s brilliance in Season 4. 🙂
I have made a new watercolor painting – Abstract Lord Ganesha. The artwork features the Hindu deity of good fortune and success, Lord Ganesha, also known as Ganapati.
With the abstract Ganesha design in focus, it also has a lot of color splashes and some floral design made with a sketch pen.
“Ganesha (Sanskrit: गणेश, Gaṇeśa), also known as Ganapati and Vinayaka, is one of the best-known and most worshipped deities in the Hindu pantheon.
Although he is known by many attributes, Ganesha’s elephant head makes him easy to identify. Ganesha is widely revered as the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and sciences and the deva of intellect and wisdom.”
I was going through some old drawings of mine and found these two illustrations I made a year ago – “The Lion” and “The Phoenix”. Both artworks are made entirely with color pencils and are a vibrant mix of colors with some abstract creativity.
The Lion is an amalgamation of bright, vivid designs resulting in a lion’s head gleaming with pride. The Phoenix illustration has an equally vivacious phoenix flapping its magnificent wings. One is the king of land and the other the prince of skies! Here are the artworks:
Katy Lipscomb is a freelance illustrator living in Georgia, USA. I featured her vivid and beautiful animal artworks in a previous post here. Her works illustrate various animal spirits – many of them forming beautiful pairs! That could be a dragon with a wolf, a couple of snakes, a lion with his cub and so on. She uses watercolors, color pencils and markers. You can find her work on DeviantArt and on Facebook.

A while ago, I posted about the beautiful watercolor superhero paintings made by Clémentine – a French illustrator living in Sydney. In the same post, I said that “she paints a lot of things”, which is true indeed! The awesome designer paints much more than just superheroes and today I am sharing some more paintings by her.
Long ago, I made a post about the Berlin-based artist Jonas Jödicke (aka SanguisGelidus). He creates both traditional and digital art themed mainly on fantasy and fiction.
Today I am going to share some gorgeous digital artworks created by him.
Stephan Moity is a self-taught French artist who creates beautiful 3D and anamorphic drawings, which often look so detailed that one may assume them to be actual objects or people! His drawings include daily things, animals, pop culture figures and characters. He shares his works on his Instagram profile.
Clémentine is a French illustrator living in Sydney, and her art style is characterized by watercolor splashes ingeniously turning into pop culture figures, movie characters or superheroes. Blule is, as she says on her website, her brand for everything illustration – her “superhero mask”. She studied Fine Arts and then Industrial Design in Paris, France. She has also worked as an Industrial Designer for Fila, L’Oréal and many others.
Inspired by the things that move or excite her, she makes a painting each day and shares it with the world. You can catch her on Instagram, Facebook and her website. She paints a lot of things, and I especially find her superhero paintings truly amazing and different. Here are some of them… Continue reading →
