I have proudly been making a mess with pencil and paper as long as I can remember.
At the age of 7 I decided to draw portraits of my stuffed animals and over the following years aquired the basics through observation, practice and the occasional art-course-ran-by-some-artist my parents sent me to. Mainly because of these courses and regular clashes with my art teachers it took years until I started drawing because it was part of me and not because other thought I should.
So generally speaking I am a mainly self-taught traditional artist who draws because it's part of me. Like, if I would stop eating chocolate - that would be weird... :)




Where I am at the moment says nothing about where I can or cannot go.


Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore.
Dream.
Discover.

I've decided that it would be best if I'd take a few months to myself. So until 2015 we have on the menu: art technique, perspective, shading, composition, practice... All the fun stuff everyone loves Wink/Razz

I shall be back in January! And for the one or other occasional comment and submission.
Oh, and I have some spots for Christmas-commissions.

Well, until then!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Hello!
Once again I have been pretty absent. So much has happened over the last months.

- Getting married. Definitely a good thing :)
- Moving. Good as well. There now is a major park with farm animals in walking distance
- Camera and scanner breaking. Not so desirable
- Starting a full-time job. Being away for 11-12 hrs every weekday is NOT helping when one wants to devote more time to art.

Sometimes I get home late and sit down for drawing after dinner. Then it is dark (note the increasing amount of black and white drawings in my gallery ;) ) and it simply does not happen every day...

Of course it's nice to make money and all, but I am not happy with cutting down on drawing time.

So I have a question to deviants with full-time employment:
How DOES one make it work?

Another b/w experiment! Fun :D (Big Grin)

Colored pencil, ink, permanent marker, A5 size.
And I did correct the black background digitally... It just did not turn out evenly... Waaaah!
