My Bio
Hey there!
こんにちは .

:bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue: First contact with art :bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue:
I'm an 18 year-old student from Germany and I love art for years!
It began when I was like 12-13 years old. I was intensely influenced by the "good old anime series" like Dragon Ball (Z), Digimon, Pokemon and One Piece.
This caused that I wanted to try to draw these awesome figures. So this was my first time I dealt with art and the period reached like 3 years with more or less long breaks. In this time I also bought the Faco Comic Pack by Wacom.

:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred: Fortuity or Fate? :bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:
Then, how the fate wanted it, I saw an offer on eBay with an easel, a brush-set, some acrylic or oil colours as well as a palette and some canvases. I thought maybe I could also paint Manga with this, so I ordered it with acrylic colours because they seemed to have some advantages and more suitable for beginners (of course the quality wasn't very good, but in fact I didn't know about it and it gave the impact to keep traditional painting with acrylic colours).
My first painting was like...painted by a child. I was disappointed because it was very difficult to paint realistic paintings.
But I kept learning with videos, internet and books and I improved more and more and I got to different subjects like landscapes, still lifes, animals, portraits, abstract art, action painting, etc.

:bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen: Rising action :bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen:
Since this point I got more and more interested in art. I bought pastel colours, loved the art class in school, visited museums, bought more and more books, read very much on the internet about art in practice and in theory and I loved to look at the traditional paintings by the old masters.

So, this is me. I even classify myself into the beginner section because I still have to learn a lot!
My goal is to find my own style and to draw and paint what I want to.

Completing this text, a short quote by Picasso:

"Um zu wissen, was man zeichnen will, muss man zu zeichnen anfangen." (Picasso)

Like that in english:
"In order to know what to draw, you have to begin drawing." (Picasso)

Hey there! As you can read, my page received 6,000 views and I wanted to thank you for this! But maybe you have always seen that it took nearly 1 years(!) to receive 1000 views for me. Well, in my opinion the reason is very simple: I just didn't upload any paintings during the last year. You may ask 'Why?'. I just can tell you that I didn't have much time (January 2012 - June 2012 learning for my A-Level and A-Level exams) and this meant that there would come a big change in my life, which I had to think about carefully. First I wanted to study art, then communications design, now I want to go in a completely different direction and I'

Hey there! Soooo, finally I got 5k pageviews! :) Of course I'm looking forward to the future and I can't wait to achieve the 6k mark! Now we come to my projects I'm currently working on and I will work on in the next two weeks: :bulletblue: Caught [digital art] : :bulletred: (10%) This is probably my biggest project I want to realize with my graphic tablet. Currently I got the rough composition of the painting and I did a sketch, but the proportions of the girl (yes, a girl is in the painting :D) aren't correct yet. So I have to work out following: - right proportions - corrections on perspective - working out the girl (line art
