    Reblogging for all my artsy friends. This is Krita. It’s a digital painting program which is totally free. Yes, it’s not a 30 day trial version and there isn’t any “professional” version for which you have to pay and yet it won’t ask you to install any toolbars or spy on you. That is because the program is open source and “free as in freedom”. So check it out. And if you like it, the creators are accepting donations. Of course it isn’t as mighty as photoshop (since it’s only targetted at painting) and it might as polished as Paint Tool Sai, but I don’t know, haven’t given it a try. But it’s worth giving it a chance.

    I’m back. Kinda.

    I am finally drawing again. Well, it’s more like two 5-minutes exercises on posemaniacs yesterday and today. But I have decided that if I want to return to drawing, I should stop caring. I mean I should stop caring whether I have practised enough or not. It doesn’t have to be half an hour, 5 minutes are okay, too. The most important thing is that I want to do it, because I am quite busy and have lots of other more “important” things to do. Maybe I will upload some pieces again, but I will try not to write such long comments as I did in the past because usually I was just apologizing for how bad I am and uploading + writing this apology usually took almost more time then the drawings. So yeah, I’m still alive.

    Got a Wacom Bamboo tablet for birthday. Using it under linux was much simpler than expected. Here I drew Captain America for a friend. I used the free open source drawing programs MyPaint (mostly for the sketch) and Krita (mostly for the the lineart). Took me about three hours and I am really happy how it turned out. As references I used images of Steve Rogers as Captain America on google images, though this isn’t supposed to be Steve Rogers. I used two layers, one for the sketch and one for the lineart. Well, and a third for the white background in the end… Not sure if I wil add some shading or colors later on.

A late night sketch. I definitely went overboard with the star dust, but oh well. It’s nice to draw without any pressure. It doesn’t have to look good, so you can just mess around and shoot down some stars. :)

thank you so much khaos! I love it <3

This is like the first set of gesture drawing since ages. Finally I started again. Of course I am still quite rusty after that megapause. That are all 45-second-drawings with the references from posemaniacs.Upps, posted it on the wrong blog. Happens every time.

  6. Comeback?

    I want to finally start drawing again… I even bought a new sketchbook which I haven’t yet used. Well, I have a kind of exam on thursday and until then lots of other things to do, so this should wait for friday or the weekend. At least I am glad that this weekend, I started playing the guitar again. That’s something I am much better at than drawing, after all I had guitar lessons for a couple of years. But I hadn’t even played that for more than half a year. I was suprised how much I still remembered.

    First time drawing TF2 characters. Good idea to do it without references. D: 

    Archimedes, you psycho bitch.

    Edit: I accidentally posted this on the wrong blog. I usually try to post here mostly the art I drew by myself. But I think I will leave this here. After all, that is something that one of my best friends drew :)

     
  8. Listeing to “Symphony of Science” and drawing. It was a dream of my idol Richard Feynman to be able to represent the beauty of science in art and this is one of my dreams as well :)

    Thanks for that request. I will do that when I feel like it. I have to find a balance between drawing what I want to draw and what I am sked to. But requests are always welcome here and always make me happy, I don’t forget them. I have a friend who is in art school and such but she envies me, because she doesn’t get any requests ^^

    I tried drawing faces by drawing Tom Baker with using a photo as a refence. (http://www.mindpollution.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/tom-baker.jpg)I am no happy how it turned out but an anon wanted me to try drawing him, so I thought I should post it. Maybe I should try to practice drawing faces using a sketchier and faster approach sometimes, similar to what I do with poses. I think I haven&#8217;t mentioned it anywhere, but in the past I was influenced by manga and anime and I think this is reflected in my drawings, even if I don&#8217;t want it.I must admit i think he looks more like a serious police detective her than the doctor. With few changes I would be even able to turn him into Sherlock from the new BBC series, the hair looks very similar.

    Just stand there ‘cause I’m gonna hug you! You are first person on tumblr who asks me to draw something. I really feal happy. I’ve never watched the old series of Doctor Who, only a couple of month ago I started watching the new series and became a huge fan. Still I think that every Doctor is great and I like the way Tom Baker looks like. He has curly hair similar to mine, only that my hair is shorter and darker. Since I am only a beginner at drawing I sometimes feel that I am not worthy of drawing someone like the Doctor, but I will give it my best. Not later than next weekend you will have him here!

    This was supposed to be a sketch of Richard Dawkins. Part of me practicing faces. He looks way to feminine for Richard, I am even afraid of labeling him. But I&#8217;ll put it here anyways. After all I am not selective at this blog, I don&#8217;t try only to post my best art. I just want to capture my improvement. I used this as a reference: http://www.isabigot.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/richard_dawkins.jpg I am still just &#8220;copying&#8221; faces from pictures. By doing so I hope I will learn how a face is supposed to look like. My next faces will probably be the 9th, 10th and 11th Doctor (from Doctor Who)  and maybe Sherlock from the BBC-series. Only then I might start studying the geometry of faces, trying to draw the same face from different perspectives and so on. And I intent to continue practicing with posemaniacs.My two goals at the moment are:- to improve my lines by doing quick 30-second-sketches- to learn drawing the characteristic features of a face
