Here’s a quick illustration I did after watching the Oscars last night. Lupita Nyong’o’s speech was one of my favorites- “…no matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid.” She looked so beautiful in her dress, I just had to illustrate her. :)

Hello :) I love your work. They remind me of those in my favorite retro books. What materials do you use in making your illustrations? Do you know of any guides or websites that teach how to make such illustrations? I'm in love <3

The Art of Eren Unten Answer:

Thank you so much! I paint both traditionally and digitally. For traditional paintings I use gouache. For digital illustrations I use Photoshop and Painter. I bought myself a book on how to use Painter years ago when I first started using it. I basically tried to find the right brushes to get the retro look I was aiming for. I never really found any tutorials online, but if I come across any, I will post them! 

Here&#8217;s my piece for the Little Golden Tales show at Gallery Nucleus! It&#8217;s a tribute to Little Golden Books, Mary Blair, and Lord of the Rings all in one shot!

I was so happy to have been invited to participate in this show. I love Golden Books! Working on this piece was so great because I was able to paint it traditionally, and had creative freedom to choose whatever I wanted. I chose Lord of the Rings because I&#8217;ve always wanted to do a piece based on the books/films. I also chose to pay tribute to Mary Blair&#8217;s cover for &#8220;I Can Fly&#8221; as it is my all time favorite Little Golden Book.
