Self portraits are of disturbing nature… Seriously, I never want to look at myself for such a long time ever again. Neverevereverevereverever…
Face: Aah, come on!
(I haven’t used a color reference at least)
Software used: Painter 12 – charcoal brush

A person asked me to do a sketch of a majestic bird, whose shilloutte is filled with clouds and other skyish elements, spreadings it’s wings and saili- ..nope,. toooo much poetry. So the idea has been ”slightly” modified. Now, the bird is not particularly an eagle… rather a furball with wings. But it’s a lovely furball!

The newest drawing. As a left-handed human, it was unbelievably smart to start with the details of the left foreground…
The drawing took about 5-6 hours (That’s a rare number..s) and without reference. The lection learned (except for the left-handed foreground thingy – It’s impossible learn that): Less detail in some areas doesn’t mean less time spent with them, only less interest in spending time with them. Have fun!
Detail 1 – looks like the owner of the house gets bored from time to time when coincidentially holding a wood-carving device.. oh, and with a fable for horses and ornaments! Detail 2 – There must be a place somewhere in this universe with stones being structured like they are in this drawing… maybe the deep sea? (c) Angelina Frank 2014 | Ool rights reserved
The following paint- I mean sketches may stretch the definition of that word a little… Nevertheless, since they took no longer than an hour, I feel audacious enough to call it a sketch… how evil, hehe.
I think this one is still a remnant of 2012 and started out with the following idea: (Hmm, wait – there was no idea behind this one, embarassing)Still trying to generate landscapes and this one is another attempt, also at least one year old, but picking values totally random didn’t turn out as twisted as it did in another ”sketch”… that is too embarassing to be displayed in this blog. Even the authenticity-argument would not reason that one, yet.
Another attempt at painting clouds.. Purple clouds. Everybody needs to paint purple clouds at some point before coming to the conclusion, that colors are wicked. My eyes were not able to perceive colors for at least two days.
I learned from it: If you try to paint clouds, always ask for their permission to use a reference. Otherwise, they’ll spontaneously decide to mess up your brain with their semi-existent shilouette. Inspired by a very particular game… Playing with brushes 1.0…playing with brushes AND landscapes Nr.1.I hate counting
Life goal: Drawing a lion head made of stone – check. Creating a stone arch that doesn’t look to much like 2D Origami – check. Now, I’ll eat something. Veeery first attempt at using charcoal and expensive paper.That puts a lot of pressure on your hand when sketching, But its just tooo much fun! About 1-2 hours and at first, I thought it would become a complete failure… but when you continue to work on something thinking there is nothing to lose, it has the potential to become surprisingly decent. Murphy’s Law?
This one is supposed to show some tearing-apartyish atmosphere (I don’t think that is an officially existing word…). Turn it around in a 90 degrees angle and it shows a sketchy landsc… phew, I nearly spoilered..
DinA 5, no reference and actually not made with charcoal but pencil, I must admit. But I don’t want to bother your mailbox with too many messages of new posts, if they are not particularly worth it and since this one was created during the same time-period the other ones were, you know.

First of all, I have to apologize for the horrible quality of the pictures, the scanner only wants to be friends with DinA4… quite mean in my opinion but maybe it will grow more tolerant one day.
This is rather drawing than sketching and creating a lion’s head out of plants has a kind of controversal touch to it… However, there is an idea behind this sketch – ehh drawing and I wish you good luck figuring out your own interpretation of it.

This is the first landscapy painting that actually took longer than… I don’t want to remember. Anyways it’s still not finished but I think it starts to feel claustrophobic between all these unreleased sketches.. so here it goes.
No reference used except for a thing that is called mind.

This is a portray of another beautiful four-legged mammal belonging to the Deerhound family. This one took AGES more than 12 hours I think. Rendering every single hair takes time but also is a lot of fun. If you are bored, just zoooom into the picture and count the hairs…
A photo reference was used for this, otherwise I think I could hardly call this a portray…
