Update 20th of November 2011 – My entry for the Teufel Concept B 20 competition.

teufel hartje

As you may or may not know, I’m a huge fan of competitions. Why? Because it’s a great excuse to get creative! (O, and because I like to win free goodies.)
So, last September when being made aware there was a competition going on at one of my favourite forums, I had to enter ofcourse.

All you had to do was color in this coloring page and you could make a chance to win a Teufel Concept B 20 PC speaker set.

Unfortunately I wasn’t amongst the winners, however I did spend a weekend creating this and I’m very proud of the outcome.

My other dragon..!

O and by the way, did I mention I also made the little dragon on the right all by myself? It was actually supposed to be a character for a game I wanted to make!
I’m still planning to use it for some other things in the future, but for now I think it looks cool along side the Teufel dragon.

It took me weeks to create my own dragon:

– First I looked at a lot of other dragons, to get inspiration.

– I also looked at reptiles, amphibians and even dinosaurs.

– I collected a lot of stock images, like fish and lizard scales.

I eventually decided that my dragon was to look somewhat like a salamander, because I love salamanders!
That’s when I made a sketch on paper of how it was supposed to look like, which I then worked out further on the computer.
I’ve used the stock images which I’ve collected as textures for the scales of my dragon, which was a lot of work as they needed to be resized and tilted, re-colored and ofcourse they needed shades!

It was a lot of work to make this dragon but it was also a lot of fun, and I’m completely in love with the end result! Now, if only I could come up with a name for the little fella..

Update 25th of April 2011 – New website layout: Free Kids Color Pages + New intro for online coloring games!

It’s been a while since my last update, but I hope this one will make up for it.

First off, a new section has been added to Vannetti, called websites. In this section I will be uploading all the websites I have designed so far and some information about these.
To start with I’ve put up some nice pictures of my all-new website Free Kids Color Pages, so please do see and read all about it, by clicking the picture below.

Secondly, after spending hours and hours working in Photoshop, I’ve finally finished what has become the new intro for our online coloring games on De Beste Kleurplaten & Free Kids Color Pages. You can find the Photoshop drawing in the Photoshop section, or by clicking on the picture below. If you want to see how it’s actually being used (and yes, it is animated in the games!) you might want to play Online Coloring!
