    Edit: I added my first post here so I could use post one for my latest art

    Hello!! I felt like reborning and had to make a new sketchbook. If there is something very off please let me know.


    Started doing 100theme challenge.

    First picture is very old.. but I love it!

    Second is "Introduction" 1/100
    Next is "Love" 2/100
    "Light" 3/100
    "Dark" 4/100
    "Seeking solace" 5/100
    "Break away" 6/100


    Last one is an illustration for my poem... and is not finished.

    The Truth



    You have seen nothing yet
    You do not know feelings until
    this one day
    You'll get to know
    all the pain of the world
    All converted into feelings
    And they say:
    "Schizophrenics".


    *****

    I am still around. haha.. and actually drawing everyday a little. It's just that I haven't drawed anything great... exept that I got an idea for someone special's birthday... And here are two portraits/sketches of her, done with pen .. Enjoy!

    You've got some lovely sketches in here, particularly the animal drawings. I think it'd be good to see you practice drawing humans from reference, as sometimes the proportions are off in your drawings of people. It would also be good to see more finished art, as well as the sketches. I look forward to seeing more of your art!

    Thank you iven for a positive comment I actually have been here for years, difference is- I made a new sketchbook .

    So today I had a plan to study (big HAHA) ,,, so instead I thought "why not try to draw with pastels and watercolors." Well for that I needed a sketch.. I took out my old sketches and redrew them a little .. but now they are too good to paint, cuz I'm not good with pastels and watercolors.. don't wanna ruin my beautiful sketches.. So here are my sketches that I'm not ready to color... . You can compare these with the old versions on my first post. Enjoy!

    They look lovely, in the future I would like you to try to replace the "I AM NOT SO GOOD"
    With maybe I am not so experienced with it, it will make a difference in your self saying that.

    When I draw with someone and he say's I am not so good, I always ask back. DO YOU ENJOY
    drawing thou, than they always say YES. Than I always say to them well why don't we just
    ENJOY what we are doing than without judging what comes out.

    I find that is the fastest way produce sketches you would have never imagined. I hope you get the
    idea! I really love your new sketches, and the way you draw with pen is so lose, we have that in common.

    I wonder why don't you add the old sketchbook to your signature , I would love to see whats in there,
    and I am sure everybody else as well,...Maybe create a new signature;

    NEW SKETCHBOOK/ old sketchbook

    THose little thumb nails are super GOOD,.....

    Hello! Haven't been here a while- was busy with college and exams. Thank you iven for the feedback. The only comic I've drawn so far is the one on the first page.. thought it's more like an illustartion of my poem. The problem is that I lack of ideas ... and well .. I draw animals better than humans..


    Now that I have about three free weeks I'm finishing my sketches. Bought myself some good pencils atlast! Thought these are not expensive Faber-Castell polychormos (171-205 Euros) instead Lyra polycolor pencils (65euros)... I really like how soft they are and well ... I love them!


    So here is the picture I'm working on right now, colors and details are much better than on this photo. (Browsing the movie "Avatar" forest pictures for background reference.. ) Enjoy!

    I am all over watercolors, let's keep each other posted on our progress in using those mediums.
    Looking forward to see some new sketches from you.

    Thank you iven! These are actually oil based pencils .. and can also be used with odorless thinner on watercolorpaper.
    I have made little progress ! Enjoy!

    So I made a new sketch! The theme is "Scorpio". Thinking of doing flat background for this using black, red and grey. Or maybe someone has better suggestions on what to do with it? (I think I need to change the pattern) Enjoy!

    Since I got so much positive feedback on this drawing I just had to work on it today... Hoping to finish it soon, I know that I want on the left to be a tree but... well.... still figuring it out.. Enjoy!
    (edit: Colors doesn't look right. I'll probably scan it once it's finished)

    Found a sketch I haven't uploaded. It's on watercolor paper ... thinking of coloring it .. but have no idea how ... what colors, where are the lights and darks .. oh well.. Guess I'll just have to experiment with it.

    Trying out new medium- oil paints I'm taking this painting more like relaxation other than stressing out because of every wrong detail.
