Algenpfleger learns to draw (that's right!) 05/10 land of no

Man not having a real forum to post sketches and still be in a community sucked. Here's hoping for the best

Probably the coolest new internet thingy I've seen in the last couple of months.
Good to see you around again Hannes! o/

The left leg looks a bit like pasted in there because of the brushstrokes going over her skirt, but you probably already noticed that:)

Ayden, yeah probably... can only get better!

Lukas, you're right, that's a pretty lazy mistake haha. Ah well we're all noobs here!

Here's a quick photo study. I'm going though a rough phase right now, brushstrokewise ;D

this thread needs more plowers and flants
i do not approve

also surprised seals can paint considering limitations i.e. fins, face, fitness

Awesome to have a new forum at last man, thanks for this. :D The brushstrokes look pretty good to me, surprisingly good. I read somewhere that you had trouble working in a painterly way since those problems with your wrists, and had to depend more on lasso tool and such, but these look nice and painterly to me.

What's up man! It's been a while. Happy to see all this happening. What's the aim nowadays with the painting, any direction you're looking to take this in? The looser paintings are cool, I can't help but feel like they are lacking a little in that bottom 10% on the value range. It would be awesome to see you nailing the same level of accuracy on your values as the tighter stuff but with the added brushwork. Maybe I'm missing the point of them though, they seem like successful studies! Can't wait for more

Mulm, yeah if you don't mind the dead on flash lighting they can be pretty cool! Thanks for the nice words!

Devin, so nice to see you here! Thanks a lot! :D

Tia, oh my god make losings of fat

Jean haha on to sealness! Actually I don't think that correlates with drawing skill *-*

Mihai, thanks! :D

Marion, you're welcome :P Thank you!

Choob! I know! It was so overdue! Yeah I had tendonitis beyond bad. It forced me to be as economic as possible, hence the lasso tool and everything. But with weightlifting and rock climbing I've been able to get a bit more brushy lately *_*Thanks for being here!

Olly, thanks! Nice to see you here dude :D Love your stuff!

Miles, whaaat :D Good to have you on here! My direction recently has basically just to be solid, have nice edges, be a bit painterly but not too much and to be fast. It doesn't sound interesting but to me it kinda is. The bottom 10% value thing is because I'm lazy :(

Jaikamat, thanks! Much love back <33

V3T, cheers mate! Yeah like I said above it actually forced me to completely change the way I was working @_@

Laika! Aren't you supposed to be on a spacecraft =3=

eclipse yeeeeees :DD

kevin! thanks man! Hope you post a bunch of stuff!

Even how about I slap your shit :DD


Okay more stuff! Still a bit older but I wanna close the gap between the old thread and the new stuff!

Thanks so much for taking the time to go out and recreate an environment like this. I really appreciate it.

Your stuff from imagination(and your studies) always blows my mind. Really inspiring stuff. It's going to be interesting to see where you are as time progresses.
