Selfportrait I

A friend painted a self portrait yesterday and motivated me to try it as well.
So... I did. It was not that easy, and I used a lot of smudging and stretching and squeeeezing tools..
It took 1 hour and 16 minutes.

Yeah... Well, here is me:
As usual - click one picture to see all in a row.


I tested some new brushes today and did a character portrait speedpainting.
It took 40 mintues.
After finishing I kept working on it for about 15 minutes, so here are two 'final' pictures. ; )

After 40 minutes

 After 55 minutes

Matte Painting practice

 A further practice.
At first I did the arrangement of the elements after doing a rough sketch, gave them some textures, and then I overpainted it and added some details. This one took quite long.

This was a 30minutes speedie.

Mini Mangaka MeetUp

I went to a mini meet up today.
We intended to got to a japanese crêpe restaurant to eat and draw. Unfortunately.. we totally forgot drawing while talking °-°
So yeah..

Some food here:
(yeah usually I don't post food- but this time it replaces some not drawn sketches°x°')

                  Matcha Latte                                                      Caramel-Cheesecake Crêpe

And what I drew when heading home by train (approx. 15min each) :

A small doodle post

Today I only got some sketches to show you.
I drew them in the train today. And the coloured was was drawn on my tablet while watching TV.
Slowly I get used to drawing cartoony-style. =)

Speedpaintings from yesterday

Hi everyone.
These are two further speedies I painted.
A landscape/scene and for relaxation a character. environment and composition is still difficult. But meanwhile I feel better about it. It's improving. ^^

1.) 10min concept and 10minutes colouring- I just couldn't decide with the colours
 2.) 38min concept - I wanted to stay in the 30min range, but finally I wanted colours as well

I gave speedpaintings a try the last three days.
I joined a speedpainting group last week, picked some topics and painted within the given time.
It is very fun but I must get better in not loosing anatomy when hurrying up painting. 

 ➀Topic: Energy source- 36min/50                           ➁Topic: Underground tribe + fire hair- 25min/30

➂ Topic: badlands- 50min/50

Casual Art Animals

I made some animals this week.
Only three at first, because there's a lot to do at the moment.
Hope you enjoy.
I really like this casual style- it's kinda fun to do.
