Mavanas's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
I created this account at first to learn from all the amazing artists and tutorials here and did not intend to upload any art. But now I use it to track my progression of skills and to get feedback and tips from this great community.

I really want to dedicate more time to this passion, but since I've other hobbies as well my production is not that great and It may take some time for me to add to my gallery.

Feel free to make suggerstions on how to improve my art - that is always welcome.


My girlfriends cat. It started out as a simple pencil sketch but then i decided to make it my newest project. The idea was to keep it monochromatic except for the eyes. The sheet was the hardest part, but i like how it turned out, like almoust abstract. Oil on canvas. 25x30 cm
Lipking Study II
Another study, original reference from the artist Jeremy lipking. I was struggeling a lot with this one, and the proportions are a bit off, but I will go on to the next piece and leave it as it is :) This is the second in my nude series, the next two will be of my own design instead of a masters copy.
Lipking study
Finished piece. Not as good as the master's original, but I had a lot of fun drawing it :) Learned a lot, especially about mixing colours. Original reference from Jeremy Lipking. You can see the progress in my scrapbook-gallery.
WIP nude oil on canvas
Trying a new format: 20x20cm... small but a lot of fun and I don't get discouraged by the sheer size of the canvas xD. I like the progress so far. Original reference by Jeremy Lipking:…

I like this amazing artist very much! You should definetly check out his instagram page (#lipking).
