Sharing sketches on conceptart is a great opportunity to learn more about your drawing skills. There is so much to learn and I often have the impression of beeing in a dead end, because I am 100% self-taugh painter.
I am 27 years old, my father is german, my mother french and I grew up in Germany. I study biochemistry, but drawing was always important to me. As a freelance job I do illustrations for a german rpg publishing house and do some private commissions (character drawings). But I need some place for experimental work, studies and exercises. So please feel free to criticise and to give new impulses.
Update (25th of march, 2012):
Finally 29 years old now. Decided to illustrate as a professional late 2010. I was employed as an illustrator and art director in 2011 and started full-time freelance illustration in 2012.
I'll update my sketchbook more regulary now.
