    Your digital painting skills are really amazing O.O You have to keep that up and do more digital work.

    I also adore your pencil work. The rendering is extremely clean and I love your shadings.

    I'm not sure, if advices from my part would be helptfull - I know little about theorie. But I think it would be a good practise if you would draw selfportraits with different facial expressions. Emotions are very important, you can feel them, when you see them on a human face. Faces without expressions can be confusing or simply not interesting to look at.

    Hi, nice sketchbook!

    I like your pencil drawings. The birds on in your first post are amazing! They look so soft and feathery
    As for your color-portrait: have you considered using a more muted background color? Maybe the orange you use steals your face the show and its tones are too close to your skin tones.

    Good work anyway!

    Hi Sarah

    thanks for dropping by my sketchbook.
    I took a look at some of your stuff and its looking
    great! your doing sketchs and learning paint thats good

    try using a bigger brush when your painting Its easier to correct stuff and you can get stuff down faster.

    have fun!! ( and yes it is all hard work) bye!!!

    Back again on my birthday.

    @AvisNocturna: Love you. Will do some studys now.

    @Melfey: Thanks a lot! *hugs*
    Gonna buy a prog for digital painting once I have the money- Which is by chance today. And I´ll try more "emotive" portraits. It´s just that my face hurts afer a while when grinning into the mirror. And it makes me laught. ^^

    @jigje: Thank you, I´m glad you liked it.

    @Jesus Food: You´re right, but I am always frightened they notice me staring. I don´t want to be offensive and fear they feel unconfortable. oo

    @joeep: Thank you! Maybe that´s it. I feel like I should change the light situation when painting, as my wall is very, very orange and when I turn on my lamps in the evening, everything gets very bright and orange... ^^°

    @hunchback: You´re welcome.
    I´ll try that, sounds like a very good idea.

    @Dragonspit: Thanks!

    @Imaginary: I will! I hope that they will become better over time.

    Here comes another selfportrait. It took me about 45 minutes and I am happy with how it turned out. Looks like me at least!

    And a quick character design... Still very sketchy, but I like that. It´s Tamlin, a role play game character of mine. She´s a swordsmaiden and cooks for the group each evening. Well... She can´t cook at all.

    Lalala Birthday update? Hehe

    The selfportrait looks nice! Hey, it's you, hehe

    There just something I wanted to point out to you, it does not concern the sketches here, but the sketches you're only showing me. Already meant to tell you earlier, but I didn't catch you online, so we do it this way
    Pay attention to the rythm and gesture of your figures. Their body parts tend to fall apart in your sketches, espeacially the legs. Its because you draw bubbles and circles that do not belongt together. Eggs and cylinders are good to sketch simple forms, but make sure you connect them. If you draw some gesture lines first and do not start with the head you'll end up with a solid base for your figures.
    (Könn ma nochmal drüber reden, wenn wir uns mal wieder online erwischen )

    miyuli: Is it you from Animexx? Thank you very much for commenting. ^^

    AvisNocturna: Ok... I´d love if you could explain more precisely. It seems to be a rather important thing.

    Girl from a magazine... I felt bad after doing nothing but cleaning a whole day long. So in bed, I did this quick sketch.

    We had some food last sunday. ^^
    I think I messed this up. Don´t exactly know why but I feel like I didn´t concentrate on the size of the objects. Anyway, it was a very quick study during a role play game night and I was about to fall asleep. (Which always happens around midnight)

    I am really, really happy with this one. This is my mum, it took me about an hour to do that portrait. She liked it in the end (and she is honest about things like that), and I think it looks like her. ^^

    Again another very quick drawing which is to be inked tomorrow. That´s why it is not very detailed yet. Want to improve my values so badly...

    AH! Updates!
    It's kind of weird, because I never saw your mother, not even a photo, but the way you depicted her really fits how I had her in mind. So... I can't left without a little crit, can I? So I'd say you could do some more really quick stuff an concentrate on the whole rather than the details. And about the values: you need a softer pencil I guess and set up good light situation or look for photos with a nice shadow pattern and pay attention to it. Let's talk about that later And pay attention to the arms of the girl in the last drawing, they're a little too long.

    The pencil work is nice as always, but you could work on your Selfportraits.

    First: You might want to use bigger strokes with high opacity! Details come last.

    Then I analysed your values and picked your lightest Light and darkest Dark. As you can see in the bars on the right they are pretty close. Your lightest light could be a lot lighter, as well as you darkest dark could be darker.
    its not necasserily true that a 'good' piece has the full value range.. check out some works of mr.blonde for example, he sometimes uses very small value range but can get alot of contrasts within that range.

    You're right, I noticed that some time after I made that posting. Although I still think you need to be pretty good at values to create a good picture that way.

    Nice lines on the pencils.

    Try shading along the lines of the object & not just sideways all the time, see how that works for ya.

    Hey,

    Nice sketches, I don't detect any remnants of a manga style, it took me a long time to learn other drawing techniques, but studying animation kinda gives me a cartoony style atm.
    What kind of pencil are you using? 'cause a softer one can help you expanding your values when you're shading.
    I'd love to see some color studies, keep it up!

    hi Katanasoul

    you're improving well. good work

    your frequence of posting is quite fair, but you must work more coz you're on the right path you must profit of the time.

    some suggestions: likeness is not really the goal when learning to draw. it will come naturally with accuracy.(but if you achieve it it's a good point)

    check your symetry, alignement in portrait (eyes)

    post more

    @Teh Gosu: You´re right, but I feel like it needs a skilled artist to do that and recieve a good result in the end. Or you want a monochrome pastell piece... Well, that´s something entirely different...

    @pauscorpi: Thank you! I thought it because you wrote something of a train station at one of your sketches... Sorry. ^^°

    @MeticoloR': You´re welcome! Got to do more faces the next couple of days...

    @BlackDelphin: Thank you very much! I´m so glad I could inspire you. I´ll do my best to keep it up!

    @DoubleThink: Really good sugestion, I´ll try that! I feel like it could especially help for ink drawings to make things look round. *grabs pen*

    @Walid D: Thank you! More to come soon.

    @miyuli: Aww! Love your works! Inks are to follow soon, and check the links I´ll add to that posting a little below! ^^

    @shumizu: Greetings from back at Ruhrpott. I´ll be in Berlin again by the end of the month.

    @Nicky S: Thanks! Aaah, I feel so glad you say so. I always thought everyone would see my manga style out of every single stroke!

    @sansan: Thank you very much!

    @zaorr: I´m glad you like it. ^^

    @Melfey: I guess you´re right... Gonna work on that. I need to emphasize more with line weight, but I feel like on a good way. Comics help a lot.

    @zou: Thank you so much! You´re so right... But it´s not that I am not doing something. Read on and you´ll see!

    Again, thanks everybody for commenting. I had a VERY busy time. I am participating on a contest in Germany that is called Comicstars. I got into the first of two workshops. It´s a little bit like a casting show, there were cameras and a jury to vote. Five left at the end, the others will be at the next workshop. I made it! I am so happy. We had to do a charakter design thursday night until friday morning, than we were put into groups of three and had to do a six pages long comic until saturday evening. You see, no time for sleeping. I felt like a zombie, but learned a lot in the end. If you would like to see our comic, look at:
    http://www.comicstars.de/comics/view...undes%20(G3)_1
    Please beware of nudity! If you click at "contest", you can also read interviews with the others and me, and you can watch videos selecting the button on the left at the contest page. Really funny. ^^
    But back to topic... Gonna practice for the next round!

    A VERY quick portrait of a friend of mine... Doesn´t really look like him. Maybe that is because I was too tired and didn´t observe enought...
