I want to visit your landscapes.
I really love your enviros - they're very sketchy and undefined but lighting makes them almost photo-realistic in a way
thirdeye, even though I don't see where there's photorealism in my spastic strokes, thanks a lot!
Here's a new one, inspired by John Berkey and by looking at AndrewLey's sketchbook page by page. I love his style. No gradients, just planes. Of course, mine's not worthy. About an hour of experimenting.

Wow, great work! I love the colours and environments. Can you tell me how you painted those structures in post nr 63 and 70 ? Special brushes or texture overlays? Thanks and post more!
Your landscapes have some lovely lovely shapes in them!
Though I have to disagree with you on the comment you made in post #65, for there is nothing dull about life drawing. It may feel so in the beginning - new, "demanding" experiences often do. Just think about how many people start a new hobby just to quit it after a very short while! But after getting into the habit, it will be no more boring than drawing from the mind. Often even much more fascinating, considering how much more depth brought on by life experience that granny in the park has as opposed to a shiny mutant monster just thought up.
very nice sketchbook - and as you know, especially great enviros. it's always challenging and motivating to see some kickass art from back home. where did you study to become media designer?
Troll Skelking: The structures are special brushes made out of photos.
dmitri: Sure, I'm getting your point. I might try it. Now that the weather is fine, I'm in the city almost all the day anyway. Wiesbaden has a nice park to sit down and draw.
Smokey: I've got tons of recent character sketches waiting in a drawer on my desk to get scanned. I'll do that asap.
Hanuka: Yeah. I'm still searching for the right people here in Germany to meet and do artsy stuff with. I never met anyone with a sophisticated set of interest and passion in art. Would be nice to find some like-minded folks. Where are you in Germany? Your art looks delicious from what I can see in your sketchbook!
I didn't study yet. Still hoping to be able to do so in the summer semester 08 at the FH Wiesbaden. Until now, I've finished my Ausbildung in January (Mediengestalter für Digital- und Printmedien, Fachrichtung Mediendesign. What a title)!
