How I make my products

Hello there!
I'm so excited that I finally opened a shop! I have always wanted to open one to sell my art, but I thought that no one will be interested in buying it, but you guys are just so awesome and I thank you just for checking out my shop!

So here's how I start with my drawings:

Most of the time I have a topic in my mind and then I look online for inspiration and browse through what seems like thousands of pictures! In the end I have a general idea on what I want to portray and start sketching with my pencil.
When I'm confident with my sketch I re-do the outlines with a fineliner and erase my pencilwork. The fun starts after this - WATERCOLORING! I just looove watercolors <3
After I finished coloring it, I scan my work and clean it up with photoshop, for example some smudges or dust from scanning. Another digital part I do is the lettering, since I can experiment more with it digitally.
What I often like do to is merge several small sketches with backgrounds that I did beforehand.

If you're interested to know more then I would be happy to answer your questions! :)

Lots of love,
Carmen / kimcarlika

PS:
If you have instagram and you make pictures of my bought items I would be REALLY pleased and happy if you'd tag me with @kimcarlika

    Hello there world! I'm just a self taught artists who likes to draw what comes to mind. Since I'm also an eager reader most of my drawings will get inspired by the books I read. I hope you'll enjoy what you find in my shop!
