Dunmer Dance - Chapter 1: Escape from Helgen
My eyes finally opened after a sudden jolt in the carriage. Sleepily I looked about to see only the trees and far off mountains of Skyrim. It appeared that I had indeed crossed the border but at what cost?
A voice drew my attention.
"You," my head whipped around at the sound. "You're finally awake. You were trying to cross the border right?" the voice belonged to a male Nord. Blonde braided hair pulled back from his head to reveal his striking blue eyes.
A frown was all he received from me, yet he continued to talk. "Walked right into that imperial ambush, same as us and that thief over there," he said jerking his head towards another brown haired dark eyed Nord.
He complained openly about the Stormcloaks ruining his chances of escaping to Hammerfell. I rolled my eyes at them and looked to the dirt road where the carriage horses were careful to tread. I looked round just as the thief addressed me.
"You and me, we shouldn't be here. It's these Stormcloaks that the Empire wants." The Sto

Well, it's been more than three years, but I've finally decided to plunge back into art. This spring I started with some minor scribbles - buying Corel Painter X3 in the process - and last month I decided to spend the cash for a Cintiq Companion Hybrid - that's the Cintiq model that can also double as an Android tablet.

Which, as you can imagine, was a major paradigm shift for me - suddenly, digital painting is a lot more fun and a lot easier than before. Having direct line of sight between my eyes, the stylus tip, and the plane on which I am actually drawing is as useful as I thought it would be. What I didn't expect is how important the ability to pan, zoom, and rotate the screen with touch gestures would end up being.

I have been reading some books on sketching and designing, in particular these two (which I strongly recommend):

And decided that at first I should put the focus on rapid sketching of scenes instead of spending lots and lots of time on any particular image. Sketching the essentials of a scene is also one of the essentials of painting and drawing in general - if those basics don't work, then the final image won't look much better no matter how many hours you spend on it! My two major sketching projects at the moment are requests made on Google+ and sketches based on reference images I took on bicycling tours.

However, these two use reference images and, admittedly, a fair amount of tracing. I also need to draw from real life, which is where my Cintiq's Android mode comes in - I plan to do lots of "urban sketches" with it, capturing scenes as I see them with my naked eye. Unfortunately, this has been somewhat frustrated by the cold spell Germany is currently going through, but I plan to follow up when the weather gets warmer again.

So what are my goals? Well, ultimately I plan to create illustrations for my own future role-playing game supplements. The first one will be my "Cold Frontier" wilderness campaign, which should be the easiest, since wilderness paintings are not particularly complex or difficult. But in the long run I also want to create illustrations for the "main area" of my "Urbis" campaign setting, which will require a lot of expertise with architecture - in particular, 19th century/early 20th century architecture. And, of course, I need to practice drawing actual people (including fantastic ones, like elves, dwarves and other fantasy races) at which I am very bad at.

In any case, expect a lot more updates from me in the future.
