    I love the way you draw this cartoon... and the colours are sobers!
    (is there a way to learn to draw by memory?.. I presume you just did it with this image, didn´t you?)

    Hi kaiko,

    This a painful question you're asking because for the first time ever I used a photo as a reference...traced the roof infact :-)
    Just could'nt get it right so I turned to a photo... left out a part and changed the window to a more farm attic look..

    So... You got me there!

    Regards,

    Arjen

    Thank you ghxpainter!

    The story of a boy who opens a chest in the attic and finds his greatest treasure ever.... A knight's suit.. (harness is I spell correctly)
    And from there on the Rusty Knight is born... pure magic indeed!

    Your feedback tells me I'm on the right track!

    regards,

    Arjen

    Another wonderful illustration , as I peruse over this one a question comes to mind, as there are so many objects within the attic other than the focal ones for your
    story do you have all these items in mind, as there are so many or does the painting just evolve to fill up the space on the canvas. ?

    Very fine work. I really like your palette. And your story telling is brilliant. Well done!

    Hi Limey-g,

    the text is about an old attic packed with years of collected stuff.
    So it contains items mentioned that I have to draw... initialy I forgot the pram.....Got smacked around the ears for that and had to ad it. :-)
    But you are right.... normaly I just start drawing and the picture evolves piece by piece.... I do try to keep the composition in mind though...
    but if I change perspective then I can't draw as many items as i did now.

    Yours,

    Arjen

    Hi M.aster,

    Thank you for the compliment.. franquin is one of the greatest!
    The illustrator that I'm influenced by the most is Janry....But it still is my own style of drawing...
    But being compared with a childhood heroe is a big compliment on a monday morning!

    Yours,

    Arjen
