Illustnation Demo by WarrenLouw
Illustnation Demo
Ok, so I don't know if Illustnation Mexico has made any official announcements yet, but it doesnt look like it will be happening this year. Here is the artwork I was going to demo for a 45 minute segment. The lines and flat colours were already prepared for the show, I just had to paint as much as I could fit in for the demo. 

The painting alone that you see here took me about 1 hour, 15min, but had been practicing to speed that up for the show. 

Oh well, at least I learned a lot preparing for it all!
Dante by WarrenLouw
Here's my take on Dante from Devil May Cry. This took a bit longer to complete since Im not too comfy with this source of light, but knew enough to eventually figure it out. Took about 4-5 hours to complete. No reference used aside from a little for his jacket. Im really enjoying these.

Squall Leonhart
Thought I would do a warm up sketch... ended up being a bit more than that. Lol. This is Squall from Final Fantasy 8. My personal favourite FF. No ref used at all. 2.30 - 3 hours to complete. So happy with it

Imaginative Faces Study 01 by WarrenLouw
Imaginative Faces Study 01
So here are some faces I did from my imagination recently just to see how much I've learnt. I had no one in particular in mind when I started, just a general idea for the faces. I went directly in with painting, without assisting line art. Each took around an hour. These were a lot of fun! Theres like an entire art to each facial feature depending on the look you're going for. Cant wait to get to a few older faces.  Need more variety...
Fan Study 01 by WarrenLouw
Fan Study 01

Here are two of the studies I've done so far. I havnt had the time for too many more of these, but hey, its a long term project of mine  Im also going to be breaking down the photo submissions into different style groups, where I will use looser styles and also take some further into colour where good lighting and colour have been captured in the photos taken.

Hope you enjoy!

Hey everyone!

So I decided to go a bit more public and sell my signed A3 prints (16.5" x 11.7") internationally for $15 (excluding shipping).

If you are interested, please email me and let me know what youre after and I'll get back to you. If Im out of stock of any, I'll make sure to get restocked, but that could take up to 3 days to process.

Awesome :) You can email me at Please make sure to include your postal address so I can fill you in on shipping rates.

Hello thank you for your submission to 2Q4Y.  If you know of anyone who might be interested in joining the group please extend our warm invitation.  Also I would like to invite you to come and visit my gallery.  I am also a published author and my book Eden Symbiotic is available on in both paperback book and in Kindle.

Here is the synopsis:

Molly Langley willingly shares her life and body with a symbiotic life form on a distant planet called Eden. Her world is discovered one seemingly ordinary morning by a ship of explorers from Earth that mistakenly believe that they had discovered a lost human colony. This chance meeting leads to a revealing of Earth’s hidden history and strange connection to Molly’s home world and creates an open alliance between Earth and Eden. This same chance encounter also exposes Molly, her family and her world to an unexpected danger from a failing company that is exploiting another alien race called the Ozbeen who had inadvertently created Shining Ones a few thousand years ago. Molly and three others of her family, all of which are willing hosts to the juvenile larvae of the Shining Ones, are captured and taken to a planet of unknown name and location to extract the DNA of their symbionts. In order for them to be able to return home, Molly and her family must join forces with a group of escaped prisoners, spies and rebels and find a way to bring down the shield that is trapping on the planet, telepath home to let their people know where they are so her people can bring down the company once and for all. 

My book is about nine dollars on Amazon Prime.  Come and check it out, bring home a copy today!

I've watched your works for a very long time, and one day I lost your page info. It took me over three years to find you again, and boy am I happy to finally have you in my watch list again!

I missed your work! For a long time, your work was the only thing that made me smile :) Thank you for being a great part of my life.

Heya WL, I've been following you for (years) now, since you were first featured in an issue of imagineFX.

love your portrait and character work, it's unbelievably good!

I'm new to DA though, I thought I'd stop by and tell you I wish you all the best :) take care
