Couldn't concentrate...


This is one of these days I don't wanna show what I did, because it sucks. BUT I promised myself to upload every crappy sketch to keep myself motivated in the long run and maybe show others, that there always are good and bad days :3 So keep drawing guys!

Color studies


She is totally off, but the main target were colors so it's ok for me^^ Also without underlying lineart to train my painting skills.

In this second one I traced the outline and then tried to pick the right colors again. Also trying to not get into details, but simply put colors on with the standard round brush :)

Friday nights work


Finally I found some time to do a longer study. Primary focus on picking the right colors and secondary to try to get the shape down without an underlying lineart. So far so good. Afterwards I tried to apply this study to an imaginative piece and...well... it was my first try to do something like that. I'm glad that I found the courage to simple try it. But yeah, I have to do a lot more of them 'til they will look kind of good :)

Leaving my comfort zone


Started a photo study, but then I wanted to draw, so nothing much here to see^^
