Simple Pop Up Cards
I made a Pop Up card for my sister’s wedding (pic 1-5) last year and now one for my friend’s birthday. They’re reeeeeeally simple. approx. 1h/card (maybe 1.5 for the wedding card)
Random Watercolor Doodle.
May is always a very busy month; so I’m not quite sure yet if I can upload anything else than this until the end of the month. We’ll see.
My scanner’s a bitch. Still taking recommendations for a new one ;D
Sketchdump. Studying Poses (reference: posemaniacs) and sketching in my travelling sketchbook. I really have to study anatomy. But I’m so lazy .___. I prefer randomly trying out… I’ll move in summer, so I decided to get an anatomy study book after that. Any recommendations?
whaa I just don’t get why my scanner makes the colors so grayish (compare blue sketch. The background is supposed to be baby pink sth…)
Spring finally arrived in Switzerland!
We had a terribly long winter here. So I cleaned up our balcony and did this Sunday afternoon color practice.
The scanner ate all the colors once again, so I attached an iPhone shot once again.
Oh well. It’s once of the sketches that came with the January sketch dump (see pic 3), I slighty tried to change for the better and failed. When will I ever get the anatomy thing? (To be honest… I also don’t feel like study anatomy stuff, but more prefer to try out until I get it right xD)
Saturday nights on tumblr. Just came back from work and decided to upload the cheerleader. It’s the colored version of the sketch I made a few days ago. Just a small color pencil warm up. And I messed up the face (mostly the eyes xD)
Caran D’Ache Pencils, 11.4.2013
Sry for the bad scan. In reality the colors are more vivid. I really need to get a new scanner when I move in summer D:

I present you the march 2013 sketch dump.
And it’s really a dump. I feel like I didn’t even manage to draw a simple pose this month. That’s why I tried and tried over and over again to draw some simple poses.
One might realize the “vintage” feeling in some…. I watched ‘the notebook’ this month and I liked the clothing in there so much <3
most of them are really quick sketches (except for the animal studies) and some of them I did in the train :-/
Unfinished pictures dump xP
Some of the pictures I’m never going to finish or add details as I wanted to.
Picture 1: wow… that’s like from Summer 2011. I didn’t finish it because it was just a picture for my mood, because I was feeling like an ice queen, without any emotions etc xD
Picture 2: I actually liked that one when I started it, but I just didn’t have enough patience to finish it. It was my first try with PaintTool SAI, and I remember I didn’t like the programm at first
Picture 3: Just a random Chibi Paint Tryout, which I soon gave up on, because it just looked weird to me. So I just started another portrait practice. July 2012
Picture 4: I really liked this one a lot when I started it and still kinda do. I just didn’t have the patience to redo the nose at that time and kinda forgot to finish it afterwards… August 2012
Picture 5: Another portrait practice that got out of hand. I started coloring it too carefully and I kinda lost interest in it with the time, because I never wanted it to be that detailed. November 2012
Picture 6: December 2012. Another kind of “Ice Queen” or “Moth Queen” thingy I wanted to paint. I just got too busy with other things and after that I just didn’t feel like working out all the mistakes I made on this one and decided to start another one another time ;D
Picture 7: A recent unfinished one from February 2013. I kinda liked the style but hated the technique I used and decided to leave it as it is before messing it up completely…
doodling with Photoshop.
I’m so out of practice drawing at the computer >___<
Color Pencils on normal A4 copy paper (‘bout 90g/m^2 I think; so a little bit harder)
Gold Pen & Acrylics for details such as the dress and the “sprinkles”.
Hours and hours of work… But it still won’t look like I imagined D:
and yes; the circle is handdrawn, that’s why it sucks xD

University and work are trying to kill me D:
I made the sketch back in November, but never dared to color it. I knew I wanted to do it with watercolors, but I also knew I hadn’t a lot of practice. I wanted to do it the same way like back in 2012, when I painted my first picture with watercolors (-this-). Well… I can’t say I’m unhappy with the result, but also not completely satisfied either.
I really liked the coloration in the beginning, but I kinda screwed it up with the background I think x)
I put a lot of effort in this picture though, and can say, that I kinda learned sth about watercolors. In the end I allowed myself to enhance the magic part a little bit with Photoshop… it just wouldn’t look good to me >__<
However, I hope some of you like it.
The watercolors I used, by the way, are mainly some very cheap ones from the supermarket I got about 10 years ago from my mum. I mixed them up with some Schmincke Watercolors I got for Christmas :)
Size is A4 (the tiny face was a pain in the ass with all the details!)
You know it’s wired right, I would love to get a drawing, randomly IDK
it’s just a wish I have, since most of the time you’re the one who gives and do the requests
I’m sorry for bothering
