My Bio
So I am basically a happy and creative-minded person who has high interest in arts, crafts and games! B-) I ocassionaly draw cartoons but mostly I draw stuff that pops into my mind... like most artists do I suppose? While much of my art is currently based around video games I am intending to make more original art in the future.

If you wonder what kind of a gamer I am: I mostly play innovative games, platform games and third person games, and love to try new game experiences :meditation: I currently own a N64, PS3, PS2, DS Lite, 3DS and Wii U.
My PSN username in case you want to add me: Th3_Cr34t0r_17

Anime and manga is also a small part of my life: Some series I've watched are Fullmetal Alchemist, Death Note, Attack on Titan, Hunter x Hunter, Cowboy Bebop, Gurren Lagann, Naruto, Kino's Journey, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Steins Gate, Gintama, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Kill la Kill, Paranoia Agent and Silver Fang... and not much else but I'm working on it!! ^^;

I use GIMP and SAI to color my artwork, but I'm also used to edit with MICROSOFT PAINT... (yes that is actually possible) an example can be found here... e -e

What I'm good at: Drawing human anatomy is what I do best. I am now also decent at drawing motion, which is awesome ;)
What I need to improve: I need to improve on my shading work, balancing between soft and hard shades. Also I want to practice more with colors :-X

Please fave and watch if you like my stuff, that would be much appreciated! :w00t:

So a year has passed, huh? :o I guess it's a given that time always move forward, but it still feels strange, I remember so vividly all the ambitions that I had for the upcoming schoolyear, and to now be at the end of that schoolyear and realize that all those ambitions... they were possible and I finished them. And that entire year's work is summed up by one 6.8 GB file on my harddisk. Feels like I've come so far, yet I havn't been anywhere at all. Of course this is still far from the end. The Story of Yin, which I began to storyboard and draw about 11 months ago now, is now roughly 22.5% complete. Book 1 is nearly done now, clocking in at

Heyoh! Long time since the last update eh? Well that is about to change right now! The last five months have been filled with plenty of progress. On my deviantart this progress hasn't been very visible but a lot has definitely changed. The last school semester has been filled with a bunch of team-work related projects, two game related and one animation related. I've never been working on large-scale creative projects like these with other people before so I was worried my creative contribution would be frustratingly limited, fortunately that's not the case though... might have to do with the fact that 80% of class consists of introverts th

So it has really been one whole year since my last journal entry... :o I suppose I really did have a fantastic time at folk high school! :D While last year's school semester hasn't offered quite as much artwork from me as other years, it has certainly not been lazy though. I cooperated on many game projects at FHS, and I got to know some amazing personalities, while also learning many new things about myself :) Overall last year has so far been my best year in my lifetime and I hope things get better from here on! =p Productivity has skyrocketed immensely since last September, right now I have 11 drawings ready to post, and some of those ar

Takker for watchen ^^
hey how´s it going! Long time no see   read I hope you´re doing alright :)
It's been a long time since I've seen read you too! Things are very fine here right now, I recently got a response from my college application and it's looks like I will indeed be taking a bachelor in animation and digital art! :D Doing some more art to commemorate that as we speak! :)

Folk high school is unfortunately over but I still keep in touch with my friends from time to time.

I also saw your tattoo comment, it has already underwent some changes (not updated on dA), but my sister won't be able to get the tattoo for another 6 months so fixing it is not my main concern right now. But all the errors have been noted so you should see an updated version sometime this fall.

My sister didn't just choose an ordinary solitaire jester, but a specific one that you see read about in Jostein Gaarder's novel "The Solitaire Mystery". The book has a large focus on philosophical questions, and the jester is quite a mysterious but interesting character in the book. She studied philosophy for half a year so I guess that's why she likes that jester so much. Since it's supposed to be him I have now changed the deck of cards in his right hand to a magnifying glass, something which the jester gave to main character at the beginning of the story.
Some liberties have been taken with the jester though, he was actually as short as a gnome in the book and he also wore a coat and hat as a disguise, but she didn't want those things.
