After A Long Day Of Work by memod
After A Long Day Of Work
This one has been taking me a while. A lot of things have kept me busy lately, and it wasn't easy to find time for it...but I think it was worth it.
I also want to apologise, that I may not have gotten back to each and every one of you. I read every comment and message I get and try to respond as much as I can, but I cannot always respond immediately and then messages get pushed back by the next ones...Hope you guys understand =]

As always, prints will be up soon and feel free to follow me on facebook:
I am thinking about beginning to upload scans from my sketchbooks there and such, so yeah =]

All the best and much love :heart:

Coming Home
Dug out this old piece and decided to finish it off. Am still far from happy with it, but meh, I just can't see it anymore.

Hope you guys get something out of it. Much love :heart:

Gone Fishing
I could have gone on meddling with this, but it really was about time to call it done. Tried to put into practise the things that I had learnt with my recent studies. It has certainly been a fun piece.

Not much else to say. Prints should be up tomorrow and I hope that you guys enjoy it. Will also try to catch up on messages, it's been a couple of busy weeks :faint:
Let me know what you think!

Time to catch some sleep.

The Ways Of Passion
Whew I'm speeding up with those submissions, am I not? ;)

This piece was fun. It really is a study from a photo reference. Again, the goal was to work on simplification and to pay more attention to brush strokes. Guess it went a little beyond a study, haha :D
Hope you guys enjoy it, print should be up soon =]

On a sidenote....I really need to find a way to check my stuff on a calibrated monitor...on my cintiq the colours seemed a lot more subtle than here... :hmm:

Anyhow, let me know what you think :heart:
Find me on facebook"
Summer Clouds by memod
Summer Clouds
On the train back to Berlin the sky was so fascinatingly beautiful, that I couldn't help but try to paint something in that spirit. Although, seeing it on a screen other than the cintiq now, I feel like the colours and contrasts are off...maybe I will revise it in a few days. Or maybe not. :paranoid:

In any case, am trying to work on my brushwork and on simplification...hope you guys enjoy it!

After the previous journal entry had graced my dA profile for like a year and a half, I figured it's about time for a new one. Hopefully though my recent submissions have proved that I am indeed alive. And I can tell you that it feels good to finally have some new pieces up. Since June last year I have been working as a full time concept artist, and that left me pretty much no time for personal stuff. But I am having a great time at the job and I have learned so much and have in fact painted more than ever before. Lately I just got too fed up with having only my rather old pieces up, hence why I made the time for new ones. And I'm definitely happy that you guys are enjoying them, that's great encouragement. There are a good many more pieces in the pipeline, but I don't know yet when I will find the time to finish them.

The next couple of weeks will be rather chaotic for me and I will probably not be online much, so please don't take offense if I am not replying immediately. I will still read every comment. But life sure isn't boring these days.

Hope all of you are doing well!
Dancakes :heart:

It was a nice quiet one :) which was good!  How are you doing these days?
memod Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2015  Professional
Hmmm, so so. Overall I'm okay, but I've been trying to deal with a breakup for the past couple of weeks and that always remains in the back of my mind. But that aside, things are alright =] How about you? Any (serious) new year's resolutions? :D

Hi! I actually came by for the first time in many many years to disable my account, but I caught your four year old comment in the list. Glad to see your work is as good as ever. Hoping everything is well :)

Michelle! Helloooo :lol: How come you want to disable it? How is life going?
But yeah, I'm definitely still actively painting and drawing...really more than ever, actually :D
