    Kay, thank you =)

    D Labruyere, thanks!

    pretzel, tak !

    Here's a recent digital painting, The Plague in Florence. Thought I'd already uploaded it here, but apparently not.

    I've been wanting to paint something with Sleepy Hollow-inspired lighting for some time now.
    It was quite a challenge... I wonder if Tim Burton would like it? XD Haha!

    The church door here is a photo (my own); everything else is 100% hand-painted with love by yours truly. For the house in the background I used a reference image of Florentine houses (Did they already have green shutters in the 14th century? Probably not...)

    Photoshop and Wacom tablet, around 20 hours, blah blah...

    Thank you for looking!

    Here's two new figure paintings from Angel Academy. Around 50x70 cm, and 110x60cm. Both oil on canvas. (and both the same model, I know they look nowhere near alike... but in 500 years, no one will know! :> )

    Mmm, lovely oils. Your skin tones feel very natural. I hope you go back and define those little toesies and fingers. Be confident!

    kiwigarbage, thank you I tend to do the hard stuff last... and sometimes time runs out! xD

    John, thank you

    Verehin, thanks =)

    catukas, thank you

    I made a bunch of character designs, mainly to prove to myself that I can do this kinda stuff... Just humanlike creatures for now... later it's time for designing monsters! Never really done that, it will be a challenge.

    hi maidith

    those oil painting of the back of the woman is simply awesome !

    i'm always excpecting to see great work in your sb.
    a bit of crit:
    the front sitting girl with oil has some proportions issues in hers legs.
    your characters design are nicely designed , but the construction and proportions are weak. You should also add exageration in the pose/gesture. but the rendering is making them very sweet.

    good luck with your nexts

    I was doing a little research on the Angel Academy of Art, and I found out that they don't provide housing and make the students pay for the art supplies. Do you guys just rent apartments in florence while your going to the academy? How expensive is the art supplies/housing? I'm asking because I'm planning on one day going to the Angel or Florence Academy of Art, and I want to find out some of the details of going to these places. Thanks a lot!

    Very strong character designs; Each one has it's own individual look and feel which is very impressive.

    Thanks so much, guys! I'll work on the anatomy and construction!

    To ezekrialase - students having to pay housing and supplies is the norm in Europe (that's why tuition is cheaper here than in the USA, I guess); though the costs vary a lot, depending on where you study.

    Florence is one of the more expensive cities, a small 1 room studio apartment costing from 500€ upwards (I'm renting a room with 2 awesome flatmates for 400€ monthly, all utilities included).

    Art supplies bought in the store (Zecchi) here cost about the same as in most other cities, a bit more expensive than from big retailers such as Dick Blick or Gerstaecker. I didn't keep track on how much I spent, so I can't give numbers. But they'll tell you exactly what materials you need.

    Check out some of the past pages of this sketchbook for more info, I've already answered questions about living in Florence

    Update time! *_*

    1) Digital painting, The Shepherd and the Nymph. Actually, I was gonna tell a story here. A story about how I made a bet with a friend; a bet that I could make a painting more kitschy than the kitschiest of William Bouguereau. And that I totally won the bet.
    But I shall be honest: There was no such bet. I painted this picture completely from my own motivation, and I truly enjoyed painting it, so I will make no apologies for it.
    Medium: Wacom tablet and Photoshop

    And a new figure painting from Angel Academy!
    Medium: oil on canvas
    Size: about 110x50cm
    Time: Several hours spread over several days

    I know your art for some years now, especially your finished pictures and I sometimes get the feeling, that you are not really improving (and I don't talk about the paintings from life).

    Now I looked trough the stuff you have here in your sketchbook and maybe everything is about you trying to much painting for the sake of beauty. Everywhere you use very smooth lines and sometimes chubby forms. I really miss something like hard and aggressive lines. Your drawings lose much contrast, because there are no edges. It's like you don't like or don't want draw some that is ugly.
    You have paintings like that with the plague or the characterdesigns that don't show beautiful characters. But In my opinion your linework does not express that. If you really want to draw characters who are ugly, try to use lines that support that effect. And even try to exaggerate.
    I just take Erasmus as an example now. He looks something like poor there. But, do want you want that 'something like' or do you want 'really poor' as comment? The design would look more expressive, if you show things like his bones. Show that he is really living a hard life. His 'cloths' have one patch there, but everything else looks ok. Why not making it dirty, giving it more holes and show, that it is old and used? There is many you can do to show, what life your characters have. I miss that right now.

    And some thoughts of mine about your anatomy: I have seen the drawings and studies you made on the previous side of this skecthbook. I think, you draw to much what you see and don't get enough whats under the surface.
    It's nice to draw the figures Caravaggio have painted. But how about making gesture drawings of them and show that muscles they have under their skin?
    I'm saying that because your own characters look often like they were made of clay. I miss bones and muscles. Even children and women have them.
    You have very great skills to paint, but it would be very nice to see you improve your forms and designs more.

    (Ans sorry if my english is bad ._.)

    ezekrialase - thank you =D

    Malakuko, thanks a lot

    Cameronator, thank you!

    jsn, thanks =)

    Elophant, vielen Dank!

    Nephelie: Thank you =) You are right - my stuff is pretty. The "beauty" (prettiness? whatever) in my paintings comes by itself, in an automatic way. I'm not even trying. Call it style. However, this is the very reason I should make something "ugly" just for the sake of it. We all need to get out of our comfort zone from time to time! This requires a conscious effort.
    I will consciously try to make something un-pretty some time, and then I'll send you a link! Your English is fine, by the way

    (But if you truly like the un-pretty stuff you probably should watch another artist... I have no specific plans to change my style... I just see where it leads. That's part of the game! ;D)

    Two studies from Angel Academy... and a pretty curvy mermaid! Just for the fun of it.

    Very nice SB. Like the figure paintings and illustrations

    Don't really feel qualified to crit on the technical aspects, but as far as story goes... In the pic with the butterfly and the girl I just can't seem to understand why she's lying naked on the ground playing with a butterfly while the shepherd in the backround is watching, fully dressed. (If he was naked I could at least assume they were nudists or something. )
