Coming Home by memod
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 by memod
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.

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:

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!
Daniel :heart:

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:
