A big hello to everybody
for some time now, I was constantely beated between to post or not my works I did for fantasy scenery for my own. About myself: iím from Europe, a german-speaking area between Austria and Italy namely South Tyrol (think of it like of the village of Asterix).
I studied in Italy and graduated as teacher in anatomical drawing and sculpture.
About my works: sure, the pictures arenít completely finished, but it isnít my intent to do it, thinking of it instead as a continuing process that matures naturally with the time, simply doing it. Hope you enjoy looking at.
Greetings and salutations,
some drawings first:

Well i like it, and i hope you'll keep posting more of this. What do you mean with fantasy pictures btw? I see these as experimenting with anatomical drawing, and fantasy more as naked girls riding on dragons and the like. You wouldn't happen to have any pictures of that wouldn't you?
some painting yet:
(edit: its the first time i post, so be patient, -also because i've a bad connection- and sorry if the pictures are sorted in reverse)

today a small update of an animal/creatur i actually try to develop. Usually i did anatomical work, but now i want more liberty with other stuff i like and need to take to.
about special effects: honesty, i like to paint things without special effects, because: 'not everything whose is shining, is gold'. (like an assemblage of photo montages or too much texture brushes)
But i say ok to some stylish and some texture effects, since they become not too overlapping over a real mind-opening work in progress.
hey, You're welcome to express contructive critics!
Beautiful sketchbook already, very well done with all of your practices! I especially thought your pen work fantastic - really attractive stuff in every way. Clearly you practice anatomy a lot, so keep on that.
The last picture - love the tone, can't wait to see where you go with it. One thing, the black shadow behind the front leg seems to separate it from the body a bit too much, perhaps.
with the excuse to welcome my first visitors, i do a little update from the last painting too.
walnut: hope to see you again!
Jansi: thanks for the tips, i've had a nice sunday remembering the valuable infos of your post
rem92: thanks, keep up drawing!
a piece i'm developing for fantasy realms; done yesterday afternoon. Updates will follow soon.
I understand what you mean with 'focal point. Most of the time i'm in hurry and overfly things. I liike pragmatic thoughts!
A creature i did for a challenge.
You have a very interesting style there. I don't really know much what to say, it's just- interesting. I think if your beef up your knowledge about composition and such, you can really pull some nice stuff off. I personally prefer your traditional work over your digital, but that's just my opinion. Keep it going. Just do more
what do you mean by 'I don't really know much what to say'? i agree with you for the composition thing, but sometimes its nice to hear it from others too. Thx.
i'm constantly misunderstand, having trouble to get some Feedbacks to improve my work- its depressing to get no feedbacks. My style could be much stronger if this would be supported by sound critics.
Sometimes i think my work is boycotted of somebody. (Deviantart for example)

some updates from yesterday night and today afternoon.
what do you think about it? I'm not really happy with the result. Maybe with different brushesÖ
an older sketch i still like.
every time i begin to paint, i become nostalgic to draw with pencils too. Drawing is really important, if you want good ideas.
Composition is a mix of paint and draw, from my point of view. You have to show concepts and to add some colors to find a nice mood to it.
