View Full Version : lady lotka with her cat

04-29-2010, 11:00 PM
Today i wrote a stupid poem about lady lotka and her cat which bit her on the finger. here is the first picture. what shoes should she wear? what cool toys should the cat have? have you got any ideas? please help. i would like the picture to be abstract and funny:) thank you for any help:) now i have to go to work and will try to finish this picture in the evening

04-30-2010, 03:36 AM
First and foremost, I suggest an antiseptic dressing for the lady Lotka; the rest would be taken care of by itself!:)

04-30-2010, 07:57 AM
thank you wenkat:) now im sure there should be at least the first aid kit somewhere on the shelf and later in the next picture when the lady gets bitten she will have it near her. her clothes are 100 % indian silk:)))

04-30-2010, 10:13 PM
that's what i have since yesterday when i turned off the computer by mistake and lost all the progress i have done. buuu.

05-17-2010, 10:16 PM
i've changed the concept a little bit and drew another picture durring the weekend. do you have any suggestions about the cat? should i keep the previous outline of it somehow to show the movement or just erase it?

05-17-2010, 11:23 PM
a little bit more

05-19-2010, 08:06 AM
the story continues:))) and i cant stop drawing.

05-20-2010, 12:41 AM
the fish is fine

05-20-2010, 05:40 AM
I'm loving the abstract quality of your drawings. And the use of color is very nice too! Can't go wrong with a lot of purple! Great progression!

05-20-2010, 10:53 AM
thank you very much rindolphus:) my problem is using too many colours in the same picture. this time i decided to stay with purple and shadows. i draw more of the cat story as my friend really loves this character.

05-21-2010, 06:38 AM
not finished yet but im working on it:))

05-21-2010, 10:56 PM
Dear Henry
You dont even know how much happiness you gave to me writing that you like my work:))) Im really motivated to work!
i would like to publish something but i never graduated from any art school and i dont know if in the publishing agencies in poland want someone like that to work for them. this is my dream to illustrate books for children. i know that i understand their sense of humour casue i work with them and often i draw something for them and my drawings make them laugh ( this is my mission apparently). im trying to organise a portfolio to send to some agencies but still have no faith in myself and strengh to do that. i dont even know if its the way to let them know that i would like to work for them.
for a year now im working on illustrations to a book on english for young learners but no idea what ill do with it. 60 pages already and no promise for anything. maybe i draw it only for myself. at least i practise drawing when im doing that.
thank you once again for your support.

05-21-2010, 10:57 PM
im not sure about lotka's head there. should it be there in the picture?

05-22-2010, 12:28 AM
Your illustrations are very charming :)
I say forget the faith part of things and be like NIKE and - 'just do it'
...then let the opportunities come to you.

All best wishes in your success,

05-23-2010, 10:23 PM
thank you Rowena:))) right now im like coca cola- "on the bright side of life" but i wish i was nike:) have a nice sunday!:)

05-24-2010, 12:03 AM
LOL, yes it is Sunday and is fine thank you :D

...and BTW, what I meant by my first comment is: you have the talent, you have the desire - and that is most important... the rest is up to the future which I believe you can motivate with your talent and desire.

All the best wishes, I am sure you will get what you want in the end :D

05-27-2010, 06:49 AM
here is a new one born yesteday:) not finished

05-27-2010, 06:51 AM
Thank you Rowena:) such words are really helpful! you are very kind.

05-27-2010, 08:33 AM
Rozalek your work is simply fantastic. Your drawing has charisma and certainly a novelty. We realize and understand the story you're telling just seeing the images. This, in my opinion is difficult to get. Congratulations, an excellent work.:eek:

05-27-2010, 09:34 AM
Such attention to detail. This is amazing! Keep them coming.

05-27-2010, 10:42 PM
haha..so cute the story and the drawings too. delightful. :)

05-28-2010, 10:02 AM
Thank you Lima:) the story goes almost competely from the end to the beginning. and right now i have the feeling that the main character is the fish:) thats how it is when you draw first and later think of the plot:) maybe there will be something after the picture with the fish in the cats stomach... well im am afraid what it would be though...;)
Rindolphus thank you very much:) here there are not so many details, normally i put even bigger attention to it. i was even thinking that there are not many of them.
Pai thank you and im happy you like the story. im inspired a little bit by the asian children art and their cute characters:)

05-28-2010, 08:19 PM
A wonderful saga which would be much appreciated by many kids and adults, I'm sure. The style is very interesting and likeable too and reminds me of some Eastern Europe cartoon I used to see as a kid in the 60ies (Gustav, a Czech character?:rolleyes::confused:).... :)

05-29-2010, 09:49 PM
Caesar thank you very much. im happy you appreciate my work. i didnt even know that i might be inspired by the cartoons from this region of europe:) i was hoping i might get away from it:) in fact im trying not to get inspired by anything that is why i dont look at the other illustratiors work. but you can run but you can not hide apparently:))i try to draw the way i like:)only lately i went to the bookshop to see what is going on in polish children books. most of them are really with no design and with bad colours but some of them were really beautiful- especially some new publishing houses take care of the design and colours. anyway i still do my job;)

05-29-2010, 09:51 PM
the mother with the baby appeared in the horizon...

06-04-2010, 10:47 PM
here is a dog riding a scooter. i will try to rescale it and put it somewhere in the background. first have to learn how to do it:)

06-17-2010, 08:44 PM
just another drawing :)

06-18-2010, 01:18 AM
These are very funny illustrations!!! :) Very good job!!!
Prikol'no :D

06-18-2010, 04:17 AM
Your style would work very well in children's books, and you are obviously a storyteller. Give it a try. ;)

06-19-2010, 05:18 AM
hi Panaslonix:) are you Bulgarian?:) im happy you like the illustrations:)
Doc thank you for your support:)) it means a lot for me!

06-19-2010, 08:48 AM
Rozalek, fantastic.:eek:

06-21-2010, 09:20 PM
hi Panaslonix:) are you Bulgarian?:) im happy you like the illustrations:)
Doc thank you for your support:)) it means a lot for me!Hi Rozalek!! I'm not Bulgarian, but you think right way ->I am at homeland of Elephants, further to N.E. direction (according to google maps)! :D

Your illustrations are amazing, especially I like your works - "Flying Elephant" and "Free Time in the forest".

This is it for children, isn't it?

06-22-2010, 10:54 PM
thank you orienalima:) im happy that you are visiting my posts:))))
panaslonix i know already: you are russian:))) yes my illustrations are for children. unfortunately not many of them have seen my work:( i dont publish them anywhere apart from here and facebook. thank you for your wonderful and friendly comments:)))

06-23-2010, 01:28 AM
I confirm You're very much endowed for such a job, dear mate.
As for taking something You painted in AR on another AR painting, You just export it as a layer (or a transparent .png); You import that on laye of the new painting and there You can use the "transform" function to scale, move and rotate it as You wish.
Best wishes!

I think this is not good. IMHO, but you have to publish these works as kiddy (not sure right word) book(s) + (maybe) some poems or fairy tales in it. Books for kids with good pictures are always (how to say) strongly required and rare, especially with such funny, friendly and non-aggressive motifs. Do you require some help?
P.S. such a good mouse is last ;)

06-25-2010, 06:56 AM
thank you very much for your help Caesar. i will try it for sure:)) sometimes i need to work on some details and i cant and your tip will be the solution:)
Panaslonix priviet! you are just too kind:) i would need some contact in a publishing agency and i dont know have any.thank you very much for your care.and how about you? are you publishing your work? im happy that you like my mouse:)

06-25-2010, 07:00 AM
i feel a little bit sad today so here is the result but im still working on it ;)

06-25-2010, 09:49 PM
just another step

06-27-2010, 07:28 PM
Hi Roz Charles is sorry we'ar late on the scene but said had to sort the Queen out 1st and that Italien painter chap , had a look its good to see your huomer is showing throu in your drawing's e wonder's if its possible to weave into your story about how A,R is a good drawing program for kids
keep em laughing roz regards E+ O and Charles E/S===== exscue spelling to old to bother :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

06-29-2010, 07:45 AM
Panaslonix priviet! you are just too kind:) i would need some contact in a publishing agency and i dont know have any.thank you very much for your care.
Privet Rozalek! Sorry for delay in reply, there is too hot in our northern area. :D And, unfortunately, for some reason we have no snow and +35 here (I don't know why? :eek:) Is it Egypt??? :eek: Where is sea? :eek:

If you wish I could try to dig (check) for some contacts of agencies in Rus (it is take some time).
I think it is anyway necessary to find as well some writer (author) of kids poems or stories to have a complete book(s) in the end.

But please trust me that your works are just fully mature (IMHO) for such kind of books. I used to work with children in after-school center and now my business is connected with kids toys.

and how about you? are you publishing your work? No, I am just starting digital art and have only a few works. :)

10-05-2010, 10:55 PM
Hello after a long time im ready again to draw:) i send greetings to all of the extramely friendly artragers!! just yesterday i started this one after seeing some of my friend's autumn pictures:)

10-06-2010, 01:03 PM

By the way, how did you do green background - wallpapers?

10-20-2010, 08:02 PM
Your comics style is original and excellent as quality!

10-26-2010, 09:10 PM
thank you Olga and Caesar:))
The wallpaper is made with crayons and pastels on different layers and in between i put the airbrush whirls.
I drew a new picture- the hedgehog is pretty naive here...

10-27-2010, 12:01 AM
Dear Roza,

You definitely have big talent not only in drawing (especially for kids) but in developed sense of humour! :D

Perfect done!!!

10-27-2010, 12:41 AM
I confirm Your illustrative style and wit are absolutely gorgeous and all kids would certainly love a book illustrated by You with such cute and sweet characters!

10-29-2010, 07:32 AM
thank you very very much! thank you Olga Caesar and Henry:))) thank you for your support. it means a lot to me- in fact thank you support from artrage as well i got my frist illustrations to be done today!!!!!!!:))) they are for a school book for younger learners :) i hope i will satisfy the customer needs:) i will try to consult the drawings with you guys:)

10-29-2010, 12:03 PM
Cool, really nice work.:eek:

01-20-2011, 01:17 AM
finally after 2 months of waiting i have the internet in the new place i live in. this is the sad reality in poland that sometimes noone cares about their clients...
i have been drawing a lot in the meantime though. i keep putting it in my lady lotka section as a simple continuation of my children illustrations thread.
greetings to all of you!

01-20-2011, 01:21 AM
on how to make an apple juice

01-20-2011, 01:23 AM
this is a drawing of me and my friend:) i guess that is how we would look like together if we were friends in the childchood:)

02-06-2011, 01:12 AM
just excellent! you will surely be an illustrator. and your work will be highly prized. Is the hedgehog naive because he thinks he might get ride?
that is my favorite pic of all. outstanding.
