    Hey, nice studies. I think you're on the right way. If you can, you should attend some nude life drawing classes.

    Here's a sketch for a piece that I've wanted to paint for a long time: Sultan Mehmed the Conqueror entering Constantinople in 1453.

    (took me around 1h in PS7)

    I need more art books xD So I bought a book about the Nazarene artists last week and here are some studies done after the reproductions.

    Beta_v1, thank you

    I've now made a speedpaint video, painting this:

    Kristina is now a FULLTIME freelance illustrator! - updated April 3rd

    The video is about 45 minutes long, split in two parts of zipped .avi-files. I apologize for the bad video quality. (at least you can see what I'm doing xD) My computer is slow and I had to paint using only 16bit colors so it wouldn't lag too badly.

    Part One - 14mb

    Part Two - 15mb

    Your drawings have a calm and warm feeling, I like how you got influenced by the old masters. Those studies are very well done, keep it up.

    A picture drawn in bitmap mode (only black and white). Even then, you can make great use of spackled brushes to achieve some kind of blending

    Hey Maidith, beautiful sketchbook! I agree with the others - all of your paintings have such a calm, dreamy mood to them. One thing I would watch out for though is that the female characters in your speedpaints all have similar looking faces. Doing face studies from photos could help mix it up a bit.

    I also really like your master studies. In fact, I think I'm gonna try some of those myself now.

    Hi Curse, thank you! I'm trying to use various references for the faces, thanks for the tip.
    Doing studies after master artwork is really great for learning

    New speedie: Call of Heaven (PS7, 1.5 h)
    Kristina is now a FULLTIME freelance illustrator! - updated April 3rd

    A friend (algenpfleger) suggested that I try using "binary lines". So I drew a few studies using pen and ink Just looking for beauty of line so they aren't very expressive. But I managed to copy the figures straight with the pen, without preliminary pencil drawings xD *is proud* Somewhen I'll try something different with pens.

    People won't move if you tell them not to move that's what I did. The sitter is a friend of mine who wanted to have her portrait drawn so she was willing to sit there like a statue for 15-25 minutes.

    Hey Maidith, schön dich auch hier zu sehen mit deinen tollen Bildern Ich finde es immer interessant zu sehen wie die Leuts besser werden.
    Was mir bei deinen Arbeiten zuerst auffällt sind die Proportionen, da solltest du imo noch stärker dran arbeiten. Oft sind die sind Kopfformen sehr verzerrt, was du vermeiden könntest indem du dir auf jeden Fall ein Grundgerüst des Körpers aufbaust (wenn du das nicht sowieso schon tust) in deiner Vorzeichnung (auch bei den Studien, so wird es für dich einfacher sein nachzuvollziehen, was du da eigentlich studierst ). dazu bräuchtest du natürlich auch ein solides Grundwissen über den Knochenbau, es ist dabei nicht unbedingt nötig jeden einzelnen Knochen benennen zu können. Einfach nur das du weisst wo sich was befindet.
    Basiscs sind das A und O.
    Es ist auch leichter zu üben wenn du erst mal mit einfachen Formen anfängst, nicht zu sehr ins Detail gehst, sondern dich nur auf die Grundformen konzentrierst. Ich meine von dir auch ein paar Comic Bilder gesehen zu haben, eine solche Grundlage kannst du dir zunutze machen, Comics sind ja letztenendes auch nichts anderes als eine vereinfacht dargestellt Realität (jaja, ich weiß, Standardspruch )
    Ansonsten finde ich es gut das du die Lineart Übungen machst, so lernst du stärker zu definieren, deine Farbbilder sind ja meist (bis auf die Gesichter) sehr vage.
    Rein von den Farben her habe ich garnichts zu meckern, da machst du schöne Fortschritte
    Weiter so

    btw. war deine vorherige Domain mondhase.de? Kann es sein das du mal ein Tutorial über die Verwendung von layern bei PS gemacht hast?

    Hi Saskia, great to see you here too! Thanks so much for the input, I am quite aware of the fact that I have to improve my anatomy and that I need do do more life drawing.
    There's nothing I'd love to do more at the moment. I really, really want to draw the nude figure from life to learn how it "works", and because I have to improve my figure drawing. Since life drawing classes are friggin expensive (speaking from experience) I'll save that money for art school instead.
    Not just any art school but that kind of art school where they do lots of life drawing. That kind of art school is the one I want to attend. There aren't any such art academies with a classical-academic approach here in Germany, but they exist everywhere else, and I will do my best to get into one of them in order to draw and paint LOTS from life. I truly want to do that. Those art schools are mostly private institutes of US american artists, and are very, very expensive, but as mentioned, I'm saving my money already and there are art scholarships and scholarships for the disabled. Right now, I have my computer and tablet and will practice digital painting and technique as much as I can. Probably I won't have the time to do that later.

    Yup, my website was and is mondhase.de and now also mondhase.com I don't remember having done a tutorial about using layers in PS, but I have a painting technique tutorial here: http://www.mangarevolution.com/tutor...utorial_id=305

    haha, dann ist ja gut Ich hab mich bloß grad daran erinnert da dieses Layer Tutorial (vor ein paar Jahren) das erste und einzige war nachdem ich mich gerichtet habe, ich dachte das wärst du gewesen.
    Aber egal.
    btw. Du kannst auch so life drawings machen bis du zur Schule gehst, im Zug im Park, in der Bahn, so ziemlich überall. Hilft ne Menge Aber das weisst du sicherlich schon, wäre schön auch in der Richtung etwas zu sehen

    omg, 3D is harder than I thought D: It took me an hour to figure out the basic tools for modeling in Zbrush, and still I can't get anything done that looks at least half as nice as my traditional clay figures, lol. Here we go, Kristina's very first 3D attempt ever, lots of experimenting.

    Beautifull colors. There's so much life and atmosphere in your images. Your anatomy need to be worked on though, but you'll figure that out. Colors look exquisite.
    Good work!

    Please take the time to give me some constructive criticism in my Sketchbook
