Gewitter8's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
I started to draw again, because of Touhou. (Before I only drew for school.) I really like the music, it's so inspiring, also the background story of all the characters. The game is also OK^^ (but I'm not good at it).

I will draw many Touhou related stuff in my style and maybe bring some of my fanfiction into it, to make it more interesting. Also some fantasy stuff especially Charakters from my Book. And also landscapes, but only for practicing (there are a bit to boring for my taste).

I draw mainly with watercolor, pastels and colored pencils, but I like watercolors the most :D.
In future I will maybe try out some more oil and acrylic paintings.

If you like my art, you can follow me. I'm happy about every single one. And if anyone has tips ore criticism, I would be grateful, if you post it in to the comments. My main goal is to improve and of course entertain you with some interesting art.


Landscape practice 1
On the way I often walk my dogs there is a good view into the distance. From the hill you can*t see the village but all the windmills
that have been built lately. Many people say it mess up the landscape, but I actually find it quite interesting. I took a pic of it as
a reference for this pic because I finally wanted to start practicing landscapes. I tend to over dramatize everything. I tried to give
the pic a fantasy and abstract touch. The reference pic was taken in Germany (Bavaria)

POFV 2: The Last Judgement
Shikieiki Yamaxanadu the high Judge with the ghosts of the Yamas before. Inspired by the three holy kings. (Astrologers from Christianity)

Dark and shiny became my comfort zone. I used some oil brushes to additon to the watercolor to get a duller look for the clothes.
I flipped it and flipped it until i did'nt know if I was just imagining the mistakes of if they were real. Nevertheless, I still believe that the face is the weakest point (OK, actually, the background, but you usually don't pay to much attention to that.

POFV 1: The Executioner
Komachy Onozuka (Touhou) as executioner. Sketch with sketchy coloring. I wanted to keep the dark fantasy theme of EOSD. Actually PCB would have to follow, but I really have no idea for most of the characters. I can't paint all of them as ghosts.

Looked some videos about color harmony, light, shading and so on. There are many things I have done before but not necessarily correct. Althoug I understand the color composition a little better now, but I think I can't avoid doing a few exercises with reference pics. Value is on of the problems. I notice that especially the backgrounds look strange when I paint haphazardly. Of course, it may be because I hav'nt that much control wiht mouse. But at least I do not waste any paper if I mess up. Actually, I would like to paint traditionally again, but there is still this fear in my head to make a mistake that I can't undo.
Life's End
No matter how many times she dies, coincidence sets her body together again and again.
But when life comes to an end, all that remains is sand to mold your body.

Big words smal sketch, just wanted to capture the idea.

I have seen a BBC documentary about the origins of life. Before life reached the land everything was just barren desert. In the Permian there was then the largest known mass extinction in which 90% of life is extinct, but a gap for the development of dinosaur has emerged. Due to the global warming caused by, among other things, the collision of the continents, the earth has gradually dried up, the oceans are acidified and the earth has almost returned to its original state. I found it so sad and interesting that it influenced my image. Actually, I just wanted to paint Thea on the beach.

As you may know, I do not own a tablet, so the lines are all quite uncontrolled and it all looks a bit rough. If I do'nt pre sketch anything traditional, I'm completely lost.
