Need A Ride?

Creatures today!
They are for my personal project and some will be useful to the human characters. The top right and bottom right one would be for riding, while the least is not the fastest, they would rather load all their stuff on this one. Of course there will be harnesses, or even a sattle and bags and what ever needed. Just saying, but this is probably not the finale, they are just some design sketches.

The Next Line Drawing

It's Simone Simons from Epica this time. I hope to give you something new to look at tomorrow or at least on Sunday and it's not gonna be celebrity portraits I promise.

Doing Studies Versus "Real" Work

Lineart Photostudy Angela Gossow (Arch Enemy), for the expression, emotion and for her awesomenes.

This weekend I may not draw anything anymore, but I really want to continue my personal project. Well, hopefully anytime soon I'll have not only the chance but also the enthusiasm and power for it.
Working for a client, studio or personal project requires (me) to put in much more energy and thought than in one of these photo studies I do a lot recently. Though I am sometimes struggeling with the details in it, I don't need to think as much. It's still rather relaxing than exhausting to me. Because it's my comfort zone and there is no design thinking, but only drawing what I see. There is little layout or composition for me to do, nothing that doesn't exist in real life so I don't have to think about how to make it look like it could exist and work. It's mainly one thing I have to focus on, not a whole bunch of things like backgrounds (depending on the study), no tricky perspective, no additional characters or objects etc. But on the other hand that project of mine is still waiting for me and I have a story to write and a long list of things I want to design for it...

Norma Bates Digital Painting

Hello and welcome back to myself,
again a new study, but this time it's not Lena Headey! What a surprise! It's Norma Bates (Vera Farmiga) from Bates Motel. Yep, she's my favourite character. I really liked the mood and light on the screenshot that I used as a reference and tried to capture it as good as I could. Can't really tell how long it took me, I've worked on it whenever I had some time on the weekends.

Just a little bit of progress on my Instagram account
