I started off with pixelart in the middle of 2012, it put me into the community and taught me how to be a better colorist. In 2013 I picked up art as a more serious hobby and started taking courses, where I was further introduced into still life and all the things surrounding that. Then, in late 2014 I was almost sure that I want to pick up visual art as a profession and transferred to an art school of Design which I still attend now.

Currently my goal is to study and explore life drawing, where I want to get better at figural drawing, lighting and perspective.
Hello yet again, to my another journal entry written in the unarguably the sweatiest summer I have ever experienced. First I'm going to write about my aspirations of painting, next thing my outlook on the future and finally some bonus sketches that probably won't ever make it into my gallery.

I have always had a huge respect for painting. A huge body of my favorite artists is made out of painters such as Giovanni Boldini and Frank Duveneck. Well this summer break I set a resolution to destroy or at least lower this respect by trying my best at it. I bought big tubes of gouache and started taking courses every Monday and also paint some more at home. So far it is going absolutely terribly, I am having the same problems as I would have when I started with drawing, while it's not that bad, it is a little frustrating. Just as with drawing, I think I have to accommodate myself in it, which takes some time and experimenting, With drawing it was getting a good sketchbook and doing real life drawing. Dunno what it's gonna be with painting, I'm eyeing up a really nice brushes right now, gotta get that cash money yo.

Now for the future and what I wanna do, what I wanna be and uuuUUuuuh. It was always a confusing question, and I was never sure if I want to make money, do something I like or something in the middle. Like 7 months ago my goal was to be an animator, because I saw future in it (which there still is plenty of potential in that field) but over time I got much more familiar with traditional art, I go galleries at least twice a month and it looks like that is what I truly want to do.
Not even kidding right now, I would be entirely happy to become an art teacher while trying to do stuff on the side. So the plan right now is finish my current school, get into an art university (preferably in Vienna or Berlin), get really good at painting and maybe someone could hire me as a teacher or an illustrator. For a reference of what I think really good is, see J. C. Leyendecker

And for the before mentioned bonus sketches:

If you have a question or simply want to discuss something don't be afraid to do so in the comments.

The guy at the print shop scanned it in black & white for some reason, so the strokes in the background are not visible and also the paper looks grey instead of a tone of brown.

Scanned some old and new artworks, now they are shiny and vibrant!
