I just watched the third season of Digimon (Tamers) again and I totally felt in love with Beelzemon :'D
In my opinion, he has the most beautiful character design of all Digimon
I've drawn it with pastels on DIN A2, therefore I have a little picture here, which is supposed to help you imagine the real size
I always had a crush on the bad guys :'D. Well *cough*..., maybe that's the influence of my evil personality ~
Ah yeah.. nostalgia... Remembering my childhood, I wish everything could be just like it was once.
Nowadays, you experience the same shit every day...
But: Mou man tai!
Since some of you asked me via mail to post more sketches, I decided to start this today.
Here we go:
So, did you recognize the woman in the sketches above? It's Alice from Resident Evil 1 and 4
Here's my second "Kakao Card" I've created:
Ooh very very cool
I love your style!
@Izene: Thank you very much
Me, Myself and I
This new self portrait took me about 7 hours. I painted it with the help of a mirror.
I higly recommend this method, because you really learn much if you just look at the things in nature and accurately analyze them.
And some steps:
Finally, some sketches (also several from my new moleskine sketchbook):
That's a quick 30 min study of a dragonfly. It's really rough painted, I know :'D
Here are some steps:
I have made this poster for our English lessons and it shows Kissin' Kate Barlow (Kathryn Barlow), who plays a famous robber and murderer in the book "Holes" by Louis Sachar which we had to read.
Actually, it's a pretty good reading material, but I still prefer "harder" stuff :'D.
I used normal white drawing paper (size: DIN A3), which I baked in the oven to make it look brown-yellowish.
Then I burned the edges with a lighter to improve this special old look.
Finally, I glued the letters on the paper, which I had previously printed and cut out, and drew the portrait.
My first commission for this year
I don't even know their names, but those two girls are pretty cute, aren't they?
Just in case that someone wants to know it: I've drawn those portraits with black and grey colored pencils from Faber-Castell (Polychromos). Canvas: DIN A3
I have to practise more...
Some Moleskine stuff:The artist uses the talent he has, wishing he had more talent. The talent uses the artist it has, wishing it had more artist. Robert Brault
This is the second page of my new Moleskine sketchbook.
You can find some special symbols/things in the drawing:
- a Shuriken - a weapon from the Anime/Manga Naruto
- Ryuk's head - Shinigami from Death Note
- Hannibal's mask - from Hannibal Lecter
- Chocobo head - Final Fantasy
- LP symbol - Linkin Park
- triangle symbol - Hidan's Jashin symbol (Naruto)
- a Bonsai
- Playstation controller
- Naruto headband (Konohagakure symbol)
(Drawn with an ordinary black fineliner)
I just finished reading the books "Red Dragon", "The Silence of the Lambs" and "Hannibal" by Thomas Harris.
(He got a new fan :'D)
I also watched the movies and surprisingly they are pretty good (which is rare in book adaptions) not least because of the superior actor Anthony Hopkins. In my opinion, Ralph Fiennes, Jodie Foster and Julianne Moore did a really great job as well.
*Naw* Hannibal Lecter just moved to the top of my favorite book/movie characters .
I've painted this portrait with watercolor and colored pencils.
I hope you like it
(Damn.. I have to read "Hannibal Rising" QQ)
On a similar note I must confess to you, I'm giving very serious thought... to eating your wife. Hannibal Lecter
The 30 mins dragonfly study is pretty good. I love Naruto!hahahah. How long did it take you to finish your first commission?

Concept Art Sketchbook - http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=219673
@kimozabbi: Thank you very much 3. It took me about 3 days
This painting is dedicated to my lovely boyfriend.
It's showing Yuna (Final Fantasy X) summoning the Bestia Bahamut, who was always, besides Diabolos and Shiva, my favorite Bestia/Guardian Force, so it was about time to draw him.
For four days I sat by and it was sometimes pretty exhausting, but in the end I'm very glad that I finally finished it. I guess, this painting is my best one so far.
Additionally, I created a whole tutorial about this painting and how I draw digital, because some of you already asked for it.
Excuse me, but it's currently only German!
>> Alle 4 Parts könnt ihr auf meinem Blog finden <<
My first exercise-entry for this year. More will follow
Scrawly, inaccurately, unclean - it's an overpainting, what do you expect? :'D
Somewhere over the rainbow ~
Another overpainting showing Chester Bennington (Linkin Park) ~
Some act sudies and sketches:
“Art is not merely an imitation of the reality of nature, but in truth a metaphysical supplement to the reality of nature, placed alongside thereof for its conquest.” (Friedrich Nietzsche)
There's actually a funny story behind this drawing . I just wanted to practise some faces, but I miserably failed at drawing a female face below the black one. So, I simply cut out this body and glued it over the misery :'D.
One just needs to find a way ;D.
I just started the Pokedex-Project.
As from now, I will draw every Pokemon of the Pokedex (1-3/4) at irregular intervals. It possibly won't go sequential - I will just paint the Pokemon which comes to my mind at this moment.
So, let yourself be surprised! ;D
This is just another overpainting for my art lessons.
I newly created my own T-Shirt shop and this is the first proper design for it.
If you want to buy a T-Shirt with this print,

--> visit this link (for boys) <--
Some new Pokemon for my Pokedex-Project:
This girl is going to be the main character of my own Manga.
It will take some time, 'till I upload the first pages ~
I guess... it won't happen before the summer holidays .-.
Well, I hope this makes you curious ;D.
Here is some more concept art:
Naruto Fanart (Pein/Yahiko)
Drawn with COPIC Ciao Markers and white ink on DIN A4.
This is a sculpture I made for my art lessons.
I've never created such a thing before, so it was pretty difficult for me >.<
Fortunately, I managed it somehow 'D.
In general, it is based on a wire, which I wraped with paper towels in the first place and plaster bandages in the second. Finally, I over-painted the whole thing, clued feathers on it and sprayed a special polish on it to make it durable.
Additionally, I used an old ragout fin bowl to build the socle.
And yeah.. I didn't form the face on purpose and the skeleton/anatomy is not supposed to be correct since it's more a costume ;D.
Don't wonder about the strange constellation. 'D I just wanted to study different material/objects.
love Naruto .
This Anime-Manga always motivates me to move on and it erases the feeling of inferiority.
I now believe that I am able to manage everything, if I keep working hard.
"I never give up... I never go back on my word... thats my nindo - my ninja way!"
My biggest dream is to become a well-known, successful Mangaka and Grafic Designer!
And I will fight for this dream of mine!
No matter, which difficulty appears - I will get through it.
One day, my dream will come true.
I'm sorry, that I haven't post anything during the last month, but I was very busy learning and working for school. Now, I finally found some time to draw again ~
Just a small screenshot study from the movie "The Avengers" for today.
The woman is called Black Widow/Natascha Romanov and is played by the beautiful Scarlett Johansson.
I really love this movie with it's grandiose story, setting and actors/actresses - everything has been so brilliantly coordinated.
Haha, and I just fell in love with Loki/Tom Hiddleston - I already liked him in "Thor", which is also a great movie, but now I've been officially Loki'd D
The Avengers is really worth to watch!
Anyway, here's a small Clip showing the making of my picture:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIuP3...layer_embedded
Some further sketches:
At last, here is a poster I made for my English lessons referring to the topic "very British".
It's a photomanipulation, which I created with Photoshop CS5.
You have some fantastic works for your age as you probably know, and it will be awesome to see your development. I wouldn't stray from the anime style so soon, because I think it's also important and you have to follow the style that defines you. Don't even worry about styles for now, it's something that will come naturally and even now I can see the development of your own.
Only advice I can tell you is to pay attention to the form of the subjects in your drawings, to pay attention to their volume, and besides that keep on practicing the colors.
@Darsy: Thank you very much for your kind comment and the advices . I'll try to keep them in my mind
This is my entry for Animexx Calendar 2013 Competition.
The picture shows Aiko in a winter landscape (possible months: November, December, January).
(I chose winter, because I am currently sick of this "summer". xx")
I had some difficulties painting her face,.. it really didn't want to look like I wanted it to 'D.
Therefore, the difference between the sketch/lineart and the final result is quite big, but see it for yourself! 'D
As the title already implies, it's the first time, that I also captured the whole painting progress of the digital picture and saved it as a video (6 times faster - so, of course not the real speed 'D).
You can watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=P6DllgAgrko
Another picture for my Pokedex-Project (Skitty/Eneco):
Once again, the speedpainting video:

I tried this challenge before, but I wasn't that successful, so I thought: why do you not try it again?
Note: I won't upload every portrait singly (I already drew 3 ones, but I'm not really satisfied with the second one, so I don't post it yet). But, if I succeed in this challenge (hopefully), I will upload a picture including every portrait I created - a collage of a sort.
Enough with the jaw, let's start .
The following portrait was actually the first one (above is the third):
It doesn't precisely look like me, but I am still quite happy about how it turned out.
However, the main thing is that I practise a lot and learn something about the light and shadow ratio in the face and how the human head itself is constructed.
Furthermore, to draw a portrait with the aid of a plain mirror or in general from real life is pretty much the most difficult thing which you can think about when drawing.
So, reproducing my face is just a minor matter .
That's it for now with the challenge ~
Some more doodlings:
I've got new watercolor paper (Hahnemühle - Allegretto) and I just had to try it out
A birthday present for a good friend and great artist
Pokedex Project - #229 Houndoom / Hundemon
Here, I just tried to draw a new (scribble) version of one of my pictures from 2008
Yeah! I can spot an improvement!
2008 (left) - 2012 (right)
~ Part of my Portrait Challenge
I also finally finished my first Moleskine sketchbook! (full-view please!!)
There are some pages missing on the collage and I blurred some parts, since those pages contain some personal thoughts and names/quotes/drawings of friends (it's a kind of diary to me).
I'm really sorry for all the crap here and there, but I promise: I'll try to make my second sketchbook much better than this one!
Some sketches out of it, which I have drawn recently:
Our beloved Akatsuki members Pein/Pain/Nagato, Deidara, Konan, Itachi, Hidan, Tobi/Madara, Sasori, Kakuzu, Zetsu and Kisame
I love Naruto (Shippuuden) so much! I can't explain how inspiring and motivating it is to me, but one thing is for sure: it became an important part of my life :3
Inspired by the homonymous song by my favorite band Linkin Band .
Photo Manip - In the picture, you can see a Cosplay of Natsu Dragoneel from Fairy Tail.

Slenderman (Slender) Fanart & Gift
Naaaw, so much time passed... but now.. FINALLY 'D... here's an update
NEW STUFF MUHAHA !! DD
This is a video project, which I had to make for art lessons at school.
The task was to create a video about "7 days of my life". I then focused on 7 activities or events, which were and are the most important in my life.
Here is a small collection of pictures drawn for the video:
Actually, this piece of art was supposed to be an entry for
a Pokemon competition, but I missed the deadline .. unfortunately... ~.
Well, in the end, I could not leave it unfinished, so what you see here is the second and final version.
The actual task was to draw/paint oneself in the Pokemon world. (Yep, I am depicted there 'D)
As the title of the picture already implies, I also wanted to transport one feeling of mine - the feeling that happens when I create different/new worlds in my head since real life is so damn bleak and brings commonly more sorrow than anything good instead.
Yeah, those "mind games" and of course my art help me to bear life with all its burdens - it's an escape without leaving home .
I hope you guys understand what I mean 'D.
Anyway, this picture was pretty difficult to paint (many characters, many textures, etc.) and all in all it took me about 4 days.
If you cannot identify every Pokemon, here is a short list: Lugia, Steelix, Mew, Charizard, Mudkip.
This is a small sketch of Freddy Krueger (Nightmare on Elmstreet) in my second Moleskine sketchbook.
Material used: Polychromos (Faber-Castell)
Here you can see the steps (WIP):
Unfortunately, I noticed only later that the thumb of the "peace"-hand was on the wrong side 'D
More stuff will be uploaded soon ;D
Moaaaa sketcheszzzZZzz ;D
WIP of my etching for art lessons. Topic: Architecture
Portrait Challenge #6
One of the portraits for the winners of my giveaway
The second portrait for one of the winners of my giveaway
The third and last portrait for one of the winners of my giveaway
(Drawn with a black pen)
If you say Minecraft, you also say Gronkh!
Who does not know him? Erik Range, better known as Gronkh, is one of the most famous German "Let's Player" and my personal favorite in this category
Thanks to him, doing homework isn't that boring anymore ;D
So many people asked me today whether I could draw Valentin Rahmel alias Sarazar as well. Well, he was also on my list, so I just did it ;D
I hope you like this picture
Just an eye exercise . Didn't draw something like this for a long time .
Part two of my etching for art lessons: the etching plate itself.
It was such an exhausting work and yet it does not even look good 'D
For the ones among you who do not know so much about etchings:
In general, you just transfer a painting/drawing with an etching needle (see second picture) onto a (commonly) plastic plate (see below).
Finally, you coat it with paint and print it on an extra paper by letting it run through a special roll/press.
Well, actually one could simply copy a drawing with the technology of the 21st century,.. but our art teachers obviously like to annoy their students 'D.
He is one of my favorite actors currently, so I just HAD TO draw him 'D
And moaaaa sketcheszzzZZzz ;D
It had been a long time since I had drawn animals... but it was a great pleasure to sketch them Do you want me to keep on drawing them?
Coloration exercise with Photoshop CS5 and Wacom Intuos 4L.
Tom (Thomas William) Hiddleston portrait
He played so many great roles, e.g.: Loki in Thor and The Avengers *-*
Pokedex Project - Articuno #144

Wesker & Jill
For my last great work (final self-portrait) in art lessons at school, I had the task to create some sketches and studies which will be included in the assessment as well.
Colored Skull Studies
Unceremoniously, we looted the biology room and decapitated the skeleton for the sake of my artistic purposes 'D.
Mini Portraits and further Skull Studies
The smallest skull (right of center) has approximately the measures of a 2€ coin!
Is anyone able to recognize the lady in the lower right part?
This is my last great work for school in art lessons!
Time: 13 hours
Material/Drawing Tools: Polychromos by Faber-Castell; gel-pens; glitter
Size: DIN A3
We had the task to create a portrait of ourselves.
Since I am personally a big fan of Gothic art and in general of dark and imaginative pictures, I styled my portrait accordingly.
The "Umbrella-Eyes" should symbolize my love for video games and my passion for art should be expressed by the words on the cloth and the medallion which can be opened as well.
Here are some steps:
The picture in the lower right hand corner was my first portrait created at my school.
I was 10 years old back then and seeing this really motivates me to practise and work even more, because, as you can see, it's worth doing it! ;D
The 12th Pokemon - #093 Haunter - for my Pokedex Project .
Time: 4 hours
Drawing Tools/Programs: Wacom Intuos 4L; Photoshop CS5
It's been a long time since my last great digital Fan Art!
I've interpreted Haunter pretty freely ... it even looks more like Banette now that I think about it 'D.. Well,.. artisitc freedom 4 the win!! X3
Here are some steps:
Original Art 2013
1. Tear of the Ocean
2. Slytherin Collier
3. Blue Florish
Hey, loving the colored pencil on your self portrait, looks bomb!
As for the Haunter painting, I really like the detail and direction of lines in the sketch and it's a bit of a shame that most of it got lost in the final work! I wish I could have seen just a tad more definition in the head and neck area which looks so cool in the sketch.
The first necklace looks fab. Is that stone translucent or is that effect painted on?
Sketchbook - freakmod wants to learn how to draw really well
Uuuu I haven't been updating for such a long time, I am deeply sorry QQ
@Othrandir: Thank you
@freakmod: Thank you very much Yeah, now I see that too, what a shame >.> Well, hopefully I'll do better next time, thx for the tip .
As for the question about the necklace: it's both - translucent and a part is painted on .
As compensation for the lack of new posts, I will give you a big update today

Gosh, this was a huge update, hope you like it
Just a small exercise from the beginning of the year
The 14th Pokemon - #351 Castform (rain version) - for my Pokedex Project.
this time... you'll see my back!
"I’ve always considered myself to be a true ninja… but those were just empty words, because Sasuke and Naruto were always in the lead! But now it’s my turn to take the lead, and all of you can watch me from the background!"
Sakura Haruno (Naruto Shippuuden) Fan Art
Haters gonna hate, but I love Sakura!
She didn't have any special ability to begin with (in contrast to Sasuke (Sharingan), Hinata (Byakugan), Ino (clan mind-jutsu), Naruto (chakra of the fox demon) etc.), but she was clever and worked her ass off to become as strong as she is now and as the most human-like person in Naruto she is therefore a great example for me and many other people.
Anyone, who claims the opposite or even says that she's useless, please simply leave this site and / or read this, thank you very much!
It's also a remake of an old piece of mine:
I love this couple (Loki Laufeyson a.k.a. Tom Hiddleston x Jane Foster a.k.a. Natalie Portman) so much that I simple had to draw something including them
Ok.. I'll just post everything at once for now and then I will try to update regulary from now on
The Colours of Magic
This artwork was created for a special German art competition, called "Artist of the Year".
Certain points were predefined: Challenge #1 Topic: Full-body - Person - Movement
It took me so long (almost a month!) to finish this piece, so that I've also beaten my own record in terms of the drawing time 'D.
In preparation for this artwork, I did numerous dynamic sketches and chose to flesh out this pose in particular (left picture). The right picture shows a quick idea sketch on the basis of the chosen pose.
The (scrawly) line drawing ...
.. and some more steps showing the grayscale overpainting.
Finally, a detailed view:
Just the results of my obsession with Hannibal ;'D.
In the picture itself, you can see the "evolution" of the character Hannibal Lecter played by Aaron Thomas, Gaspard Ulliel, Mads Mikkelsen and the one and only Anthony Hopkins.
Raul Esparza as Dr. Frederick Chilton from NBC's brilliant series Hannibal.
This artwork was created for the second stage of the German competition "Artist of the Year".
These points were predefined: Challenge #2 Topic: Gijinka; with background
As Gijinka (= humanised object) I chose the moon and the sun combined as a (partial) solar eclipse for myself.
I was even able to set up a new record with this artwork in terms of drawing time.
More than 40 hours spread over one month - I can't believe it :'D
I have to confess that I really had quite some trouble fleshing out the motif, because I rarely draw men and especially kisses at that.
Finally, a detailed view:
Gengar - Pokedex Project #094
The 15th Pokemon - Gengar (#094) - for my Pokedex Project.
Petyr Baelish Sketch
Here you can see several sketches and studies which I did for my challenges:
1 hour speed painting study (reference used)
30 min speed painting study (reference used)
movie composition studies (each 10-15 min)
gesture sketches (posemaniacs, each 1 min)
And some sketches from my Moleskine sketchbook:
This was a gift for a good friend of mine.
(Done in Photoshop, ca. 2 hours)
The result of having fun in Photoshop
I wanted to try out different brushes which lead to these very quickly drawn scribbles (5 - 20 min). These were done completely without references. I think, I will do more of them in the future.
Finally, I decided to push the third one a little bit further and ended up with the Slenderman (Slender Fan Art) Speedpainting shown above .
Yakari - Canvas Commission
A commissioned painting of the young Sioux Native American Yakari and his pony friend Little Thunder (from the Franco-Belgian comic book series).
I have never painted on (such a large) canvas before and I am not that experienced with acrylic paint, so it was quite a challenge.
Self-portrait [New FB Avatar]
I wanted to make a new avatar picture for my facebook art page, because I want to develop my drawing style further to realistic fantasy instead of Manga .
I started applying the first layer by using watercolor pencils and then I moved on with the actual watercolor and brushes.
In a final step, I added a layer with colored pencils and gel pen details.
That's my first aircraft painting.
(Done for my Sketchbook Squad group on Facebook)
Drawn without references.
I also did some sketchbook studies in preparation for this speedpainting:
Speedpainting Dream Monster & Composition Thumbnails
After doing some composition exercises, I decided to push one of the thumbnails a little bit further and ended up with this dream-inspired monster-speedpainting.
Composition thumbnails; from imagination (each 5-10 min):
