Linux and Gimp, huh? D: You're not making this easy for yourself haha.
Digging the life paintings though! They help tons, so keep it up, maybe go with some easier settings first, darken your room except for a single light source, makes understanding of light and shadow a bit easier I think.
Und ja, wir können ja ne Runde zeichnen gehen irgendwo oder so
wow, you got some great progress in your work, looks like youre constantly solving all the problems. Keep it up man!
btw, you said smth about youre job keeping you from drawing. Do you have a job in the creative industry now, or is this all still drawing-after-work stuff?
Damn, sometimes I am too tired to continue.. well after a busy day I still got to do some studying...
@xinleh: Thanks mate! No problem, most of the time I crit in other SBs it's like "Fuck, taht guy's an artist, who am I to critisize his work, which is so far superior to mine?" Your crits are sure valuable, but it's good to know you've been looking at my stuff, too!
@algenpfleger: Hmyeah, I used mostly a diffuse lightsource for the recent Stillifes, I'll try to switch it the next time. Thanks for stopping by, master!
@MonkeYoakum: haham random they are, but I thought when I want to be able to draw everything, a good exercize would be to draw everything! BTW, I love your tatoo-designs!
@KingElvis: nah, there is no progress. In fact, there are parts in the first post that I look at with jealous eyes nowadays. And my work right now doesn't have to do with art at all. 'tis all social ork since I am a Psychologist, that would be the field to dive into. Recently, i begin to seriously doubt hat path, though.
BUT, or not really "BUT", but I think... you should try to ALSO get back to the traditional mediums and try to create "finished studies" as i call them...
this does in no way mean, that you should stop with what you have going on right now (these are great studies/works that provide big progress), its just that i realized, after i had moved abit away from my tablet, that it gives you "something" very very intense (plus alot of motivation) when you create some kind of "landmarks" here and there in your progress, landmarks that show your current state in a finished piece. blablabla
i would just like too see some of those, but hwo am i.
@stone.: I know where you come from dude and I understand your urge to see some badass shit from me. Be patient my friend, give me some more months and I will surprise even myself . About traditional, I do not have a scanner nor a working digital camera so all the scetchng I do besides the tablet are indeed lost to the public right now. Besides, I am too careful about my monetary situation to buy all those canvases and paints and whatnot. Especially when it's only for studies, I simply haven't got the money for that.
So, bunch of today, I saw Hannes moaning all the time about his "shitty" updates, here you see what a shitty update really looks like!
Also, I began a new scetchbook today, whoohoo! Trying to make the best out of PC-camera + nifty filters so at least it should be visible what it's about. doubled the size of that abomination.

@Hannes: Ah well thanks I'll quit my contextless self-loathing if you do too! Those are not lighting-studies actually. It's about composition really, geometrical, value and stuff. Building up slooooooooooooooowly. I do feel it gets me something though.
Today I had no time to do stuff since I've been busy all day. And now I am n te verge of collapsing so just 1 pic for today.
