A big hello to everybody
for some time now, I was constantly beaten if i should post my works here on Ca. About myself: i’m from Europe, a german-speaking area between Austria and Italy namely South Tyrol (think of it like of the village of Asterix).
I studied in Italy and graduated as teacher in anatomical drawing and sculpture.
Here some own studies -not school work, although it was what i loved to study at school-

Well i like it, and i hope you'll keep posting more of this. What do you mean with fantasy pictures btw? I see these as experimenting with anatomical drawing, and fantasy more as naked girls riding on dragons and the like. You wouldn't happen to have any pictures of that wouldn't you?

two landscape studies i did in the last two days;
-the first one is without texture brushes, (i used one-two more by accident)
-the second painting uses extensively texture brushes. Hm. i like more the first one, but maybe im not yet good handling textures.
Comments are welcome

(edit: its the first time i post, so be patient, -also because i've a bad connection- and sorry if the pictures are sorted in reverse)

today a small update of an animal/creatur i actually try to develop. Usually i did anatomical work, but now i want more liberty with other stuff i like and need to take to.
about special effects: honesty, i like to paint things without special effects, because: 'not everything whose is shining, is gold'. (like an assemblage of photo montages or too much texture brushes)
But i say ok to some stylish and some texture effects, since they become not too overlapping over a real mind-opening work in progress.
hey, You're welcome to express contructive critics!

for those curious how i made this sketches: i found a face poster of GOT on the web and drew face by face adiacent of the original (photo) face. After completing each face on a transparent layer, i cut the face and pasted it on top of the photo face, till i complete the entire puzzle. Nice quick sketching session.
Probably i'll update this post again adding the missing faces yet.

Beautiful sketchbook already, very well done with all of your practices! I especially thought your pen work fantastic - really attractive stuff in every way. Clearly you practice anatomy a lot, so keep on that.
The last picture - love the tone, can't wait to see where you go with it. One thing, the black shadow behind the front leg seems to separate it from the body a bit too much, perhaps.

a piece i'm developing for fantasy realms; done yesterday afternoon. Updates will follow soon.
I understand what you mean with 'focal point. Most of the time i'm in hurry and overfly things. I liike pragmatic thoughts!

You have a very interesting style there. I don't really know much what to say, it's just- interesting. I think if your beef up your knowledge about composition and such, you can really pull some nice stuff off. I personally prefer your traditional work over your digital, but that's just my opinion. Keep it going. Just do more

what do you mean by 'I don't really know much what to say'? i agree with you for the composition thing, but sometimes its nice to hear it from others too. Thx.
i'm constantly misunderstand, having trouble to get some Feedbacks to improve my work- its depressing to get no feedbacks. My style could be much stronger if this would be supported by sound critics.

Good. Lets start with a small selection of new works.
