In loving memory

It's the 12.12. today... The picture below is already 4 years old. It should have been one of my christmas gifts for Flo, but instead I couldn't do anything but put it into his coffin.


In loving memory of Florian Horst.
† 12.12.2005
Rest in peace.
You may be gone, but you will never be forgotten.

Confined


Some work in progress, although... I guess I won't finish it.


It's always the same with me. I'm satisfied with my work and myself for some weeks, then the usual crisis strikes again.

What kind of artist do I want to be?
Should I change my style? Should I draw more realistic?

Then I get to the point when I realize that I can't, even if I wanted to.

Irreversible


Ten days till my "special anniversary". It's been 4 years since it happened. Life can't always be good or bad, it has its ups and downs. It's like a rollercoaster. Everyone makes mistakes. "No such thing as mistaken, just learning from what you're taking..." We should learn from them and keep on living our lives, forgiving ourselves.
But there is this one thing I will never forgive myself.

Steampunk Succubus

I recently discovered a few new fondnesses of mine:
1. Frank Sinatra
2. Steam Punk
3. Drawing with tools/utensils I never used before
So I went right into the post office, bought a big pile of brown wrapping paper and spent half the day with just drawing whatever came to my mind.
I finally have fun at drawing again. During the last year, I often drew just because I felt like I have to, else I would lose my routine. That's one of the worst things that can happen to an artist. If you have a blockade, you may either just put away your pencils for ~2 weeks and wait till you're feeling different or just keep drawing until you break through. But if you didn't draw for months, you need weeks to catch up to your former skills. I won't let it happen to me again.

I could have done better. Much better.
If you're looking for me: I'm sitting in the corner with a blanket over my head, crying about my lack of skill.

Commission: Jellopy (Baiken)

My boyfriend loves to play Guilty Gear XX Reload online; His nick is Jellopy and his main char is Baiken. I already did some colorthemes for him in the past, but after playing with them for months, it was time for a new one and also a new fanart.

Heavenly Maiden RO

Having enough of other private RO severs (which all seemed to have either incompetente or corrupt GMs), we decided it's time for an own server again. After 2 months of work, we thought it's time to launch it:

http://www.heavenlymaidenro.com

The homepage was designed by me (It's nothing special. I wanted it to be elegant and plain.) and I made some artworks for it too:
