Exhibition tomorrow!

I have to confess, I don't have a drawing for you today-but I have two freakin' awesome announcements, so I hope that counts as a good replacement :D
I've already hinted at the first, but now here's your official invitation!
So I'm taking part in a group exhibition at our school tomorrow! (For all you people in the area-Goetheschule, Ruschenstraße 1 in Essen, Germany, I would love for you all to come!)
We'll exhibiting some finished works and some live painting is going to be going on AND we're selling awesome christmas cards so it is definetely worth a visit! :D If you're not in the area or able to come-I'll remember my camera and will be posting photos! :D
and theeeen, I just found out today that I was chosen to exhibit my work in the 3rd annual European Jugendkunstausstellung, which is an exhibition held at the famous Zeche Zollverein here in Essen. It was a little mindblowing finding out today but I'm just so happy and honored and wwaaaah XD can't really believe it yet! So anyway, I love you lots and I can't wait for tomorrow! :)

Mischievous Grin finished pieeece!

It is done. Finally. The work was getting a bit tedious in the last phases so I'm glad it is done.
I like how it turned out though. She is not the typical beauty facewise, but I still like her style and her hair ;)

Now there is only one more drawing to go for the exhibition on saturday! :) I can't wait!

I don't think she fulfills the typical beauty critirea, but for some reason I still like the way she looks :D

Mischievous Smile

Sometimes drawings have soundtracks..This one's is definetely Norah Jones XD
I really wonder what this will look like when it is done...:D It is clear that I still have to increase the contrasts quite a bit, carry on working on the hair and add the whole bottom bit, but maaaybe...just then maaaybe it will turn out the way I want it too :D

Apple Pinecone Still Life

Drawing Class today again :D
Still life is something I haven't done in a while (well since last week in drawing class actually XD) so here you go! ;)
It is a mix of aquarelle colors and colored pencil kind of things...I have to say, I'm not unsatisfied with the way it turned out ;)

New Years Ball Poster part 1

Working on two projects simultaniously is complicated :D
These both have to be done until the end of November, so it'll be a lot of drawing for me this month :D
This one's a crop of a soon to be poster-I hope it'll turn out well!
I'm not really happy with the roof and everything yet, but I'll think of something :D And I think, this time some color is definetely needed!
xoxo Alex

Mischievous Smile

Hey guys :) I just saw that yesterday doesn't seem to have worked, so let's try it again :D
The hair still needs a lot of shading to give it more depth, but I still kind of like where this is going XD
And there is still more hair coming too! :O

Mischievous smile

Sometimes you know you're going to like a picture, even if you've only drawn a gew lines. This is exactly the case with this one. In a way her head is tilted downward, which makes her seem rather shy, but then that mischievous smile make her seem really positive and cool :D
As you can see, she is still very ruff but don't worry-it'll come :D

Christmas Card numero 2-the reindeer

Nuuuumber 2 for you! :) This one is still quite simple... I wonder whether I should make it a little darker around the antlers...
Message me if you want some! :)
 It was so weird, I was drawing the moose and then I suddenly realised-wrooong animal! reindeers are the christmas antler animals XD but then I decided the moose was cool too so I finished it anyway, and then of course I had to do a reindeer :D

Birthday Card!

Just casually posting a birthday card I doodled for a friend a while back (just fyi-"Alles Gute" means something like "All the best" in German :D) while working on a concept for the next big drawing... I have to get cracking if I want to be done until the exhibition! :O
I like homemade cards, they are such an awesome casual way to show someone you care about them, have fun while making them and they make the most awesome assets to awesome presents! :)

Truck pt 10

We are slowly tip-toeing to the finish line :D I promise I have some cool stuff coming after (Vintage shopping in Manchester, or an uber-cool video and the next exhibition! :D) which I can't wait to tell you about, so bear with me-I don't want to rush this!
So we still have another building left and some final touches...
you can already start thinking about whether I should add color or not :D Please comment with your thoughts, because frankly I have no clue whether I should add color or not :D

Naturalistic Pepper

What's with everyone's still life paintings of fruit and vegetables. I don't get-why not draw a car or sweets or something?
This was our exercise at the drawing class today. It is interesting what you can do with different media!

Truck pt 7

Okay I'm trying to finish this in the next few days, because I know at some point my motivation will fail me :D
I know I shouldn't rush it either, because I know I'll hate myself for it, if I ruin it...
