metro people studies:
And some sketches from a lifedrawing session in the"Gängeviertel". It was basically as cold in the room as it was outside, so the model stayed dressed.

As mentioned in my previous post... I was asked by Rotopolpress to be part in their annual Group Show which opens the 25th of November. I was really excited and spent some time thinking which kind of picture I wanted to draw...I decided to draw a more subtle villian, who might have good intentions but does bad things nevertheless. Maybe a ghost of the forest who is angry about human beings destroying her forest and killing its inhabitants. So she turns them into trees and other plants.
Here are some sketches:
At first I wanted to draw a darker picture, but I had problems with the colors and didn't like the background in the first sketch, so I redrew the background and started new on the colors.When I finished the picture I was not sure if it was villainous enough and I guess that's mainly because of the colors. I think I have to create some dark illustrations next to practise that a bit more.
The Vernissage is this Friday, November 25, 2011 at 8 pm at
34119 Kassel, Germany.
Unfortunately I can't be there, but if you are in Kassel that day, don't miss it!
Thanks to Michael for answering all my questions so patiently. I feel really honored to be a part in this Groupshow!

Last week I was helping out a teacher with the university's qualifying examination. I should sit in the room and calm the people down, explain the exercise and so on. The funny thing was that I was kind of excited myself. Later when they were occupied drawing their pictures I calmed down and the rest of the time it was okay.
Yesterday I finished my piece for the upcoming Rotopol Press Group Exhibition in November (25.11.2011 — 11.02.2012).After I sent it to the guys at Rotopol Press I was in a weird mood, as I always am after finishing an illustration. So I drew this girl to take my mind of.
(I will make a post to this illustration when the exhibition opens.)
And here is the poster for the exhibition.

I'm attending a fashion illustration class at my university, which is quite good, because we learn about creativity techniques and we have to try out and draw with traditional drawing tools. I did a lot of illustrations completely digital, which sometimes took longer than I wanted it to and I kind of thought that I unlearned to not paint with an Undo-button...;)
In this class I'am not allowed to draw digital, so I was forced to draw with ink and watercolors etc. And surprisingly I liked ink! I did a lot of drawings which I'm not showing here because they're really crappy tests but anyway...
So I tried out ink and it makes the process of drawing so much quicker.

A "A Song of Ice and Fire" - Fanart...
I watched the series and started to read the books but then I had so much to do that I forgot to finish reading the second book. That happened with a lot of books in the past.
But I will finish them, when I have the time because they're really really good!
