    Man, you really worked you arse off, huh? It feels weird, dredging a slightly outdated thread up, but I guess I felt I needed the inspiration at the moment. I'm working on stuff I can't show, a lot of it in 3d, and feel as though I need to work a lot harder. Real inspiration, thanks.

    *edit: ok just looked at the timestamps - less than a month ago. Man, you gotta move fast round here, huh?*

    ...after a while.
    Thank you all for your replies - it means a lot for me.
    I had sort of a verry hard times lately.. i'll try to sumarize it all in few words, skipping a most of the nasty stuff.
    So.. where were we?

    Yeah - i was bouncing off - France, Romania, US...
    I've got to see a bunch of you at E3 - Phill was kind enough to make a fool out of me - he got me with his Canon eye. Drop over his site to see the pics.
    After E3 we hang out with Jason, Andrew and a big bunch of the MB crew - missing Coro, Smellybug, Insane and others
    I got to take a bath in the paciffic and promissed myself to melange on my skin his salt along with the Mediteraneean's ad the Black Sea's - Mission accomplished.

    Anyway - since then i have bounced to France and back severall times already. Got two Self Portraits in the air (using the plane's toilet mirror while desperate woman was knocking on the door) and few more on each country.
    Managed a trip to paris as well where Nox was super kind to arrive straight from his plane (he was abroad in north) to the train station to catch me before i go. HPX was sweet as candy - i miss them both. There - one portrait of made by HPX in the corner of the sketches - i'm sure you can tell.
    So.. yeah - i finnished one of the little sketchbooks:



    And started another:


    Meanwhile i managed to get the most beautifull appartment in Montpellier - and as tons of blond super white skins from the north of europe invade the city is a pleasure walking the old streets with a sketchbook in hand.
    Everybody is turned red into the evening abusing the sun like crazy, and for the first time i was amased by the quantity of booze an irish woman can drink. Believe me - it's unnatural!!

    Now i'm back in Romania for few weeks. Few guys from Microsoft were here and i'm glad i've spent more then the required time with them - it's funny how a guy you first consider "plain" turns into a deep resurce of common passions and unveils lots of culturall debates that keep you long into the night. Makes you wonder about yourself, isn't it?
    Anyway... i hope i'll manage to draw some more - however my father is very ill, i managed to break the screen of my tablet pc, my main monitor isn't working either... and that's just a few of my problems.
    See you next time.
    And thx again for your comments.

    What can I say

    For once in my life I am struggling to find the words to describe how your work
    has redefined artistic expression for me.



    I am moved

    I am beginning to see the light.

    Hi again everyone. I have very little time to update and i'm sorry i can't type details of the story.
    My life is a huge rollercoaster... i'm dropping in some sketches from bothe France and Romania.
    I am currently back home - i had to come in a super rush - my dad.. is crossing to the other side.
    I was super busy at job - i had to work in train, hotel, plane, airport.. etc yet getting here and having some talks with my dad was the most beautyful thing that happened to me this year. With all the sadness that surrounds it.
    Talking about death with a man that is about to die is such a waking up experience. You realise how manny things you avoid talking in your day to day life. And it's not just any man.. my dad is.. a story in his own.
    Speaks 7 languages (including latin) , graduated math and physics universities, went 6 years in comunist prisons tortured like hell, and had the most wonderfull family i've ever encountered - MINE!
    He's 74 now, been in war as a kid, yet all he was talking about when delirious (he has cancer and he;s in terrible pain - the calmants are making him delirious) is computers and internet. My mom is 20 years younger then he is, and i've neer seen so much love between two people as i saw and see between them.
    Anyway... i'll go to see him tonight again. My laptop (the new one) is broken too - i wanted to paint him...
    Instead.. here are some old sketches i did of him.. while he was a bit better.
    I hope to update...



    Here is a SP i did just before leaving France:



    And soem other crap from between:





    TIll next tie..
    thx for watching

    oblio- The drawings of your father are honest and wonderful. that's a sad and beautiful story- such is life. I'm glad you shared that with us. I am sorry for your loss. Your thread gives me a sentimental feeling for a thing I didn't quite experience, which is the birth of this site- but the last three years that I've followed it have given me more inspiration and spoke more truly to the artistic soul than I can fully appreciate and I want to thank you for your part in that. Your improvement is immense and inspiring.
    We met actually in San Fran, briefly though. I was sitting off in the corner sketching during the party night and you happened past and looked through my book which was pretty rough at that point. But you gave me some solid advice and i've kept on with it because so many of you folks inspired me there to make the silly strange things that I make.

    Keep posting and i wish you all the best in hard times.

    Sorry about the crappy art. This time the story is better.

    The computer was on other hands tonight so i was doodling in my bed:


    I was doing this when the phone rang and my mother called me.


    My father has died.

    Andrei,

    I feel very, very sorry for you - that's a nightmare come true.

    I wish you all the strength you need now to cope with this terrible loss and that your family will receive the support you need so much now.

    Marfa frate. I really like your progress here and hope to see more of them.

    Second of all, i'm really happy to see so many "fratii mei" here: adiere, oblio and many others. Makes me feel not alone.

    And third of all, i'm curious, wich mobile game company was that you used to work for? I'm working at one here in Bucharest. Starts with a Ga....mabe we were colegues

    Check put my schetchbook if you please

    Slayer -
    Auch.. thanks. I just i got lucky to make friends with all the awsome people here. Love your watercolors. I hope i'll be able to surprise you even more i've still got other undisclosed areas
    Maybe we can hangout and do some drawings.

    T-Raktor - yep.. we're separated by a floor. I like your latest studies (the hands and all). Keep em comming - as soon as i finish this game i'll get more time and we can hook up and draw.

    Here's a little update:
    Cyberfreak (battle with megusta and dariz...)
    (still needs a lot of work.)

    And a life drawing session in a cofeshop last night with megusta. It was realy fun.


    I hope i'll be able to update this thread properly... the story i begun in the first post.. got so complicated... it will take me a lot of time to sorti it out in words... but... one day.. i'll catch up somehow.
    Thanks for looking everyone.

    [edit]
    Secretly adding some more
