in the last couple of days one topic always came up again and I just realised something! Not everything is as it seems. What a surprise (not!) but let's get a bit into detail here because we really like believing things are exactly like we imagine them to be!
While having talks one to one with friends and being honest with each other it came out that everyone of us thought the other one had 'made' it or at least was nearer to their personal goals then oneself. That clearly shows that we never really know what's going on in the other persons head and heart and that we only compare ourselves to what we think the other persons 'perfe
I'm very active on deviantart yet again, uploading nearly daily all my imaginative work and studies I'm doing to improve.
I finally have found a work schedule for myself that seems to work very well and I can now use the weekends to study full time. As a freelancer
it's always really hard to balance work, my own art, studies and free time, because there is no one there to check on you :D

AlesiaHigdon had a great idea I would love to share with you. I personally interpret as as the simple idea of team spirit. Unfortunately not enough people live by it. So it's time to change that. Instead of trying to get featured somewhere or promote just yourself it's about promoting each other. Taking the time to look through a gallery, searching for the artwork you like best and then commenting why you like it so much and how it may be improved. That way we can all help each other and learn from one another.
It's very simple!
1. For the first 10 people who comment on this journal, I will feature one of their pieces of a
Seems like I write a new entry once a year. :D
To keep you updated, the internship I told you in the last one
about had ended to New Years Eve. Out of financial reasons
they couldn't hire an additional artist so I was back on my job
Soon I decided to start working freelance. Because it was always
my dream to do so in the long run. But I never thought I would
have the opportunity yet. But I build up my portfolio, applied to
a lot of jobs and finally got my first one in March 2013.
My client was an indie games developer from New York, who
needed character art & animations. And also backgrounds, tiles
