I'm know on the web as Vodoc Xeno. I'm 21, from Switzerland, trying to get into an art school. I'm into illustration mostly, traditional art although I'd like to get into Photoshop and Illustrator.
I've been on this site for four years so I thought it's about time I started a sketchbook.
I'll post some older stuff to show what I've been doing and some more recent stuff.
I'm hoping you guys might help me, guide me a bit. Every little helps! =)
This is where I started to get into art more seriously. My first ever watercolor painting:
Got an e-mail recently, a girl from Australia got this tattooed! Can't wait to see a picture ^^
So all this is a year or two old... or even three O.o (Time flies)

Welcome to the site, Vodoc. 4 years is a long time to be a lurker haha... anyways nice motorcycle. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
Keep doing you
More recent stuff
Based on a painting from Ferdinand Hodler
I mostly use pencil, pens and watercolors.
I'm trying to get to be a bit more familiar with Photoshop and Illustrator but I still have a lot of trouble using my tablet.
Anyway, working outside of the comfort zone is always the best... What are the most pressing things I should work on?
Thanks for having a look!
Thanks for commenting on my sketchbook!! Appreciate it
AND WOWWWW awesme! If I may ask how did you get such hard rim outside markings for the watercolors?
I've never had mine get that dark before
Can't believe those are your first ever. That's insanely awesome * __ * Insane.
I love your color palette too
Keep posting, I'll be watching you from here on out....
Pou- It depends on what I'm working on but if it's a really fine edge it's often a 0.05 pen. Otherwise, I only use the paint brush that comes with a small Van Gogh watercolor pallet; it's springy and if you're delicate, you can use the tip to trace very fine lines. I should really invest in some art supplies... -.-
My normal process is pencil -> Ink the lines (erase some or all of the pencil) -> watercolor -> ink again where it needs it.
And thank you for the compliments, it's much Appreciated =)
I did this for the CHOW: Alien "Shark" Raiders, until it was pointed out that it clearly said no shark heads attached to humanoid bodies... -.-
Something is wrong with his head... too long I think :/
I'll get it right sooner or later
It's a frogger!
