Kay and xelby, thank you
I'm in my easter holidays right now, sitting at home all day and practicing. That's where I did this painting of Anne Boleyn:
I was going to finish it but it seems to be a boring one, so I don't think it's worth spending more time on rendering and finishing :/
Also I almost finished my first (physical) sketchbook! Yay!
That's the first time I filled all the pages in a sketchbook. Will upload the new pages soon
Also, a photo study from screenshot. PS, 1h, no colorpicking or tracing. If it reminds you of Dr Cuddy from "House", you're on the right track.

Thanks so much for answering my questions Maidith! Youre progress has been really great ! congrats!
I´ve heard that Angel academy is thinking of moving to a new location and change some teachers , do you know anything about that?
wow the anne boleyn picture is great! lov it
beste grüße nach florenz und viel spaß im nächsten semester
(hab es leider nicht auf die reihe bekommen mich in florenz zu verabschieden - deswegen nu auf diesem weg: allet jute und ne gute zeit an der aaa)
ezekrialase - yay! *highfive* let's finish some more of those sketchbooks!
Velocity, thank you
John, thanks Yes, Angel Academy is looking for a new location. I like that idea; the current 2 studios are quite cramped full, and keeping all my painting materials in only 1 studio would be much more convenient. So far they haven't found anything suitable yet.
Daniel, vielen Dank =) Ups, ich hab dein Skizzenbuch hier ja noch garnicht gesehen XD Allerhöchste Zeit!
New painting for a challenge
Would you say she's a superhero or an antihero???
Either way she kicks some serious butt.

Hi- Despite only looking through a few pages of your sketchbook I can say definitively your work is amazing! Everything is such a high standard, my favourites are your figure studies, love the control and use of lines to create volume, movement and character.... fantastic! If I knew how to subscribe I would but for now you are a favourite on my explorer! Do you only draw the lines we see in your posts or are they lots of erased construction line too?
Thank you Dayle!
In my sketchbook: where you can see construction lines, I've used them. Where you see none, none have been used (I didn't use a pencil and eraser at the time, just ballpen)Do you only draw the lines we see in your posts or are they lots of erased construction line too?
In my oil paintings, both still life and figure: The beginning stages always involve construction lines.
New digital painting, Danse Macabre.
At the risk of sounding emo, sometimes I feel quite incapable at painting. I haven't improved much lately and that made me feel really emo. I don't want to make work that is just "good enough". But maybe I just haven't done enough digital paintings lately! (I'm all preoccupied with painting still lives in oil, and doing anatomy studies)
I'm quite sure that other painters can relate to that feeling.
Voice 1 inside my head: "You really need to hurry and get better! You're already 21, you grandma!"
Voice 2 inside my head: "You're ONLY 21, you toddler, so take it easy!"
Voice 1 inside my head: "omg omg omg! I need to improve!"
Voice 2 inside my head: "You're gonna be a student for what, five more years? Be glad you have all that time!"
Voice 1 inside my head: "ONLY five years? O sh*t! Must paint faster!"
... and so on, and so on.
Hey Maidith, your work is great dont worry, and that with just 21 years. I know that feeling myself and i know for sure that if you get through those frustrating times improvement is just about to come. Also einfach die bösen Stimmen im kopf ignorieren und weiter hart arbeiten.
Alter.... Mir fehlen die Worte, du hast ja so ein krass heftiges Sketchbuch! Meine Güte!
Now crit the shit out of me!
Lightpunk and Tawnos, thank you
Finished another (physical) sketchbook! Yay!
Copying from Bammes students... And here's another (grisaille) painting from figure painting class at Angel Academy.
I will have finished the 3 year program at Angel Academy this summer, and will continue studying on my own for a few months. Then I want to study illustration at a private art/illusration academy in Hamburg (if they like my portfolio... Wish me good luck to get accepted there! Thanks!)
Now I'll go eat lunch (home-baked roll with mackerel on top; and a green rabbit food salad )
Your anatomy studies make me want to cry... but that's good I'll just get to draw more... thanks xD

Thank you Sarmati and shambok
I turned 22 yesterday, yaaay! Getting older = getting better at drawing.
I hope CA will exist long enough so I can prove my improvement when I'm 89 years old or so.
Filling my new sketchbook with Bammes studies. Communism may have sucked but least in drawing those East Germans knew what they were doing haha I would have loved to study in Bammes' class!
An welcher Schule möchtest du denn hier studieren? Also, wenn ich mir das hier so ansehe, wirst du von privaten Schulen mit Kusshand aufgenommen, da musst du garnichts hoffen. Du hast ein unfassbar gutes Portfolio!
Now crit the shit out of me!
Excellent anatomy studies! Something I need to work a lot on!
Congrats on finishing your course on Angel´s Kristina!!
I hope you enter that school you want now! keep up the good work too!
I hope you can answer me some more questions about angel´s too ,
can you tell me how expensive it is to do the extra curricular classes like the ecorché one I saw in their site? and others?
Oh what is your opinion on Florence Academy of art ? I read that some people leave angel´s for it ? Does the oposite happen too ? why does that happen? Angel´s seems so cool!
thanks so much!!
I adore the above study's
Here is my Sketchbook. Please have a look if you have time. Thanks.
thank you for all the informative notes in your sketchbook scans I love how confident your lines are...and Grandma Sacre is awesome!
Thank you guys and girls!
Akademie Leonardo in Hamburg. Mal schauenAn welcher Schule möchtest du denn hier studieren?
Isn't that info on the website? I don't know, never done any of their workshops. Juts e-mail Lynne, she'll be able to tell you =)can you tell me how expensive it is to do the extra curricular classes like the ecorché one I saw in their site? and others?
It seems that the program is similar, with FAA perhaps allowing a bit more artistic freedom? I'm not sure, never studied there. Yes, people have left AAA for FAA for that specific reason, I don't know about other reasons. Angel's probably wasn't exactly what they wanted.Oh what is your opinion on Florence Academy of art ? I read that some people leave angel´s for it ? Does the oposite happen too ? why does that happen? Angel´s seems so cool!
Personally I'm satisified with the school, it's exactly the education I was looking for.
Some people also left AAA because they thought there would be instruction similar to those at a classical Russian art school - figure drawing in a constructive way. But Angel's doesn't teach that, I totally don't know how people get that idea. Angel's is NOT a russian academy, they don't teach their traditions and methods, I think it's quite clear from their website.
My computer died, so no digital painting until maybe next month or so. Damn.
Still, I can upload some stuff... another still life from AAA.
Sorry about the photo quality, I blame it on my 8 year old digital camera.
You seem to be much better informed about the words. I have no idea what a neo-classicist art education is; I know the term only in the context of paintings by Louis-David, Ingres, etc.
Your school seems great and I would love to study there too. Can't afford it, though. Nonetheless, I'm now copying from a Russian anatomy book which I got from Hans who got it from Vadim (say hi to Vadim, if he's still here )
Almost as good as actual classes...
