Hello everyone !
I'm 27 years old, live and work in Vienna as a Media ... uhm ... guy ... actually I work at a printing company at the moment, which allows me not much free-time for any other creative work, but I'm doing my best to improve.
Glad you found my happy little skecthbook, I hope you like what you see.
NEW PICS - LATEST POST !!
Well, I have to admit, I'm very excited to launch this little thread - I hope all of you ladies and gentlemen do feel fine, best wishes from Vienna,
I apologize for the fact that some pictures are low-quality, I will make better ones soon.

Here's some new stuff - hope u like it.
I would really appreciate every comment - may it be short or long, just go ahead, you can do it !
The lady with the cigarette and the wolverine-guy were created by other artists, he is inspired by the wonderful Gabrielle Del'Otto and she by a member of this forum, whose name I can't recall right now, but I'll add it as soon as I remember it ...
Sorry, I forgot - George Bush from the Caricatures is also inspired - can't recall the name again, ooops, ...
Grrrreetings from Vienna!

Nice variation of medium and styles. I see you posted on january, and then on september.... Hope you post more often. These threads are a great way for us to develop our killer instincts, hehehe....
Thanks for the comments on my SB!
You've got some awesome form, and some of your pieces have beautiful lighting. One thing: I would recommend studying up on/spending more time on the hands. Some say hands are nearly as important as the eyes and face, as of showing personality/emotion, and I tend to agree.
Eagerly awaiting more work!
Quick update with some quick sketches, I hope I can present you some "advanced" pieces soon.
Thanks for all the comments, loved every one one of them !
carlosranna - I will post more often, we'l see eachother around here, thx for dropping by !
M-Croft - Thank you for your motivating comment and the advice !
thespianmonsalvo - Short but straight to the point, like that - thank you, you're right, will take care of that !
rattsang - Thank you as well for dropping by ! - I draw most of the pictures here from my mind, but the usage of ref-pics is increasing ;-)!
Well, hope you like my pictures, have fun everybody, until the next update !
You really can do something! I love the traditional pieces you've done. They has great feeling in them. You really know where to put shadow, that's what I noticed first. Keep it up.

Small update -
A little bit of everything ( description is not in order) - some old sketches, some eye-"studies", one study-copy from Mentler, the ingenious Bone Doctor - love this man! - , and a quick sketch from today of an old man, took me about 30 min.
RainShinobi - Thanks man, will soon drop by again at your SB!
cyqunea - Thank you very much! Hope to see some pictures from you as well!
I like the variety you have in terms of the faces, and I really enjoy your characterized heads too.
I can't really think of anything to say, outside of what everyone else has said.
Keep it up
love your sketchy style and feel. Good usage of black vs white and study of lights, however maybe you should try and "render" more. Great stuff overall though, id like to see some color work from you
