    Deiras Scribbles (Update: 2. Januar)

    I can vaguely remember already having a thread here but it was old and all the links in there were broken, so I'm starting a new one.

    About me: I'm living in Leipzig, Germany, and am unemployed right now. I started drawing as a child and never stopped. I love animals, especially rats, and have kept pet rats for more than twelve years. I enjoy all kind of fantasy stuff like art, books, stories. I'm also an experienced roleplayer, I been to various LARP conventions and had a P&P-Group a few years ago, went on to chat- and forum-roleplay-settings later and settled on a World of Warcraft Roleplay Server now.
    I would consider myself as a fantasy artist in the beginning of my "career".

    I was lingering on this forums now and then, afraid to post something for a long time. Then I was going to have a child and as my daughter was born, I rarely had time for art, and almost no time for internet activities like forum reading and/or posting.
    She is two years old now and I'm slowly back into drawing again.

    I'm exploring the depths of digital art, right now, as Painter and Photoshop combined with a simple Wacom.
    I feel very comfortable with it for doing my sketches and scribbles, but I struggle when it comes to finished digital pieces. My favourite traditional media are watercolour pencils, gouache and acrylics, but I want to expand my horizons a little bit because I enjoy digital paintings.

    Well I hope I won't forget this thread again and update it regularly with some stuff.

    ---

    I finished the following picture today, it's all Photoshop, mostly standart brushes with a few I took from the Photoshop section on CA. I am very pleased with the result for it's my first real try in Photoshop.

    Edit 12.03.09: attached another image for tumbnail.

    Some World of Warcraft influenced feline.
    Painter, about 2 hours until now.
    Rough base colour first, starting laying the "real" colour down.

    Good morning folks, thanks for the kind replies.

    I just found out I forgot my pencil case at my driving school - I hope they kept it and I can get it back today.
    So I couldn't do any sketches because the pencils I found here suck.
    And my boyfriend took the wacom with him to work so I'm left here with almost no chance to do some decent stuff.

    So I decided to revisit an old digital sketch - my userpic comes from it. Doing so, I found out something went wrong with the drivers of my old, Aiptec tablet and it doesn't support pen pressure anymore.
    Because of it, all that I did was throwing in some colour splatters in the background. Posting the results.
    First, the sketch, than the old concept, and the background splatter. The lyrics on the colour sketch are from Placebo, "Infrared", which actually inspired me to this image.
    The character depicted is very special for me, more than a online avatar or an "alter ego", it is the representation of myself in my art.

    Got a few commissions to work on so not many updates.

    Did a quick acrylic to distract from digital media a little bit.

    Not much time right now, busy with stuff.
    Here a concept for a digital painting. Referenced the pose from a stock photo. Supposed to be an anthro fox lady.

    Edit: Somehow photoshop saved this at low res, will probably reupload it later as I progress on the sketch.

    This weird rat/bird/whatever-based critter appeared in my dream today and I totally needed to draw it because it was very cute and extremely cuddly and I was afraid I will forget how it looked.
