My name is Stefanie, I'm almost 21 years old and I live in Germany.
I've been lurking around here for a very very long time (3 years I think) and finally found the courage to register and post my own stuff. I started drawing in 2004, bought my first graphic tablet (a very cheap one), which only survived being used by me for one month and then I got a small but very nice Wacom Intuos 2 and Photoshop as a birthday present. I drew a lot of stuff for a while and then soon lost interest until the end of 2007.
This time I started drawing traditional stuff (watercolors, markers,...) till now.
A few weeks ago, while I had nothing to do at work, I found an Oekakiboard (a small Java App in which you can draw digital pictures online) and registered.
Drawing was a lot of fun, even if I had to do it with mouse. This is how I thought about giving the digital and the realistic stuff a second chance.
So I'm finally here and hope to receive a lot of critique from all of you!
I've only drawn anime so far, so please be gentle with critique about anatomy, I know there are a lot of mistakes because in anime you probably can't do anything that's too wrong but I want to get rid of it and go for the real thing!
But I'd be very glad if you tear me into tiny little pieces if it comes to color, light and shadows and the like, I think I'll never get these things right, no matter how hard I try
I need to work on these a lot!
- COLORS!!! (they seem to hate me...)
- backgrounds/landscapes/scenery (sometimes I don't draw backgrounds because I think they'll ruin what I've drawn so far...)
- post at least every two weeks here
I hope we all get along well
