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
Uff…apart summertime, where i like to get the sun, ive some problems to login, because Ca.org continues to change their website settings and introduced new functions/widgets that hinder me from login. Arg…hate widgets.
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.

Im surprised why my posts on Masterstudy of the day was deleted TWICE and my recent posts here in my Sketchbook once, without any reason. I guess maintaining a forum is far from funny and technical problems are nothing un-common. Disappointing
Anyway, lets post my latest study again.
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.
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
