    Feed me some sauerkraut!

    Welcome to my Sketchbook.
    I decided to come back and start posting in my sketchbook again. I'll hopefully continue that. I do have problems being online and keeping stuff updated.

    Hopefully I manage to change that now.

    So here it goes again

    Great sketches, especially your anatomy studies! I love the animals, too

    As far as the landscapes go, I would suggest using a custom brush for textures.

    Keep on the good work!

    Great start! Really nice lines in those figure studies. I look forward to seeing more.

    "This is a paint and pixel-splattered furnace that forges the swords of artistic mastery. This is a place where swarthy and belligerent dwarves drink turpentine mead, berate their apprentices and slap the trade into their skulls. It's where the anvils are made of graphite, the hammers are as true as rectangular marquee selections and the fires burn with the light of a thousand lensflares." --Jason Rainville

    @Leo: No problem! Thy for also stopping by my sketchbook. I hope you're working hard man
    @Neviah: Some good texture brushes would be nice. If you have any idea where to get a good set, well that would be real helpful!
    @wooden mango: I'll try my best to keep the updates going

    Oh no! School starts tomorrow. My time to draw will decrease now. I'll try my hardest to use my time wisely as possible and draw as much as I can... still it isn't gonna be that much especially from monday to friday...

    I looked at a lot of sketchbooks lately. So many awesome people. Why you guys are sooo good? Getting my ass handed to me here XD

    awesome! on the right track. those studies are awesome. Only thing i can say for your paintings is start with a bigger brush and use the smaller brush only when needed. Maybe blend a bit more? for the purpose of the studies though, what you are doing is okay. Just for your more finished paintings, it can be easy to go right away to the small brushes. Just keep it going and you will improve so much in no time!

    @Quasar: I saw your horse sketches, they were f*cking great. Defently would like to see more!
    @Wr00m: Hopefully I get good, I'm still far to lazy, this is nothing
    @Leo_7: Thanks for ya support man! Wanna see your face on page 1 tonight!
    @thesimplelife: The faces take forever atleast for me... but I have to keep doing them, because I suck so hard at them (and everything else)

    Chemstry done. Last exam someone almost cired. And were almost only boys in our class. But it's over now. Tuesday biology exam and then I have more time for studies again... daaaamn

    I heard someone say a sketchbook is suppose to be a place to fail so: Let's fail

    Also one of the still lifes is suppose to be a plastic sheet...

    Hey Ich bin auch absoluter Beginner und daher setz ich mich mal dazu Richtige Kritik überlasse ich daher lieber den Profis, so viel allerdings: du hast schon ein gutes Gefühl für Proportionen und einige der digitalen Portraits haben viel Potential, sie sehen aber aus wie erst halbfertig.

    Weiter so!

    Hey deine sachen sind ja cool :3
    Versuch doch mal, wenn du Bleistiftzeichnungen machst, richtig in die ,tiefen' zu gehen bei den Schatten und die dunklen und hellen Stellen sehr klar zu trennen.
    Deine vielen Gesichter finde ich klasse, das müsste ich eigentlich auch mal machen *_*

    I'm feeling like the rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, because I have no time
    The space under my eyes is dark and my skin eventhough we have sunshine outside is white as snow. I'm actually glowing in the sunlight holy shit.

    @luxaeterna: Our kind has to stay together and motivate each other! Also vielen Dank. Wir sind hier überflutet von tausend Leuten die alle das selbe wollen, da ist es gut ein paar Leute zu haben die einem den Rücken stärken wenn man noch am Anfang ist Achja und zu den Portraits, die sind alle relativ schnell, also... kein Wunder, dass die so matschig aussehen...

    @yphiel: God these names where you never know how to spell it haha. Du hast aber total recht. Oh ich hab das total vernachlässigt in letzter Zeit. Danke fürs hinweisen.

    Okay, some really reALLY quick sketches! Biology exam tomorrow I somehow always manage to fail horribly at the exam, and I am actually not bad at biology:

    Like the last paintings. You seem to be understanding light well.

    If you want a kick in the butt, check out The War Of Art by Steven Pressfield. You already seem to have quite a work ethic so I think that book would just cement what's already there.
